According to a study, gym equipment carries more bacteria than a toilet seat and more than 70% of these bacteria can cause harmful skin infections and other illnesses.
So, if you want your clients to keep coming back to your gym, it’s essential to maintain the hygiene of your fitness center. However, it can be challenging to deep clean your gym on a daily basis, especially if you own a huge facility. Here are some quick and easy hacks to keep your fitness facility squeaky clean at all times.
Sanitize the Equipment:
Your gym equipment is full of dirt, grime, and sweat. If your facility is open 24/7, it can be challenging for your cleaning crew to keep it hygienic at all times.
Stocking up on disinfectant wipes can be a great solution to sanitize your machinery and weights. Not only will this be helpful for cleaning the machines, but you can also offer it to your customers to clean their hands before using the equipment. This will prevent the spread of germs.
Don’t Forget the Locker Room:
Bacteria and germs often fester in the locker rooms and are often neglected during cleaning sessions. According to a study, gym lockers contain the most harmful types of bacteria, which can lead to food poisoning or pneumonia. Just think about it: there probably are more than a few gym members that keep their used (read: sweaty!) clothes in their lockers.
Gym lockers need extra attention and should be cleaned multiple times a day. While you can’t sanitize the inside of the lockers when they’re occupied, you should do it when they’re not in use.
Moreover, wipe all the benches and locker handles with a wet cloth dipped in a sanitizing solution. Don’t forget the mirrors and the areas around it.
