For gym or fitness center managers and business owners across Southern California, two of the most important pillars upon which your business is built are customer safety and hygiene. There are a thousand ways that these can fall apart for you under the wrong circumstances, and that’s why it’s imperative that you stay on top of cleaning in your establishment. Few other businesses have to deal with quite the same challenges that you do. Between gym floors, machines, changing rooms, showers, windows, restrooms, and locker rooms, there’s a lot to consider. If your members are dissatisfied with the cleanliness of your facility, you could well lose their membership. Have no fear, though. There are professional gym cleaning services that can address all aspects of your premises’ cleaning and have your health club, fitness center, studio, dojo, or gym at its best for new prospects and members alike. Nancie Brown & Associates is a Los Angeles County cleaning company with over 30 years of experience providing commercial cleaning services to a broad range of clients, from contractors to hotels to restaurants to gyms.
Fitness Center Cleaning Services
One of the particular issues of cleaning commercial fitness facilities is the amount of high-touch areas and surfaces. Health clubs, gyms, and fitness centers alike all require cleaning and disinfecting on an ongoing basis. Nancie Brown & Associates are happy to consult on which cleaning techniques and cleaning products to use on a day-to-day basis. Regular cleaning can minimize the spread of germs and cross-contamination in a gym environment. It is vital that patrons are not overly exposed to germs and diseases via unclean equipment or facilities while using your center. However, we also advocate for a time each week when a professional cleaning crew come in to properly clean the gym from top to bottom. A thoroughly-cleaned facility will go a lot further towards ensuring that members and guests have an enjoyable experience.
A clean gym culture starts with a cleaning service, but it is upheld by the staff and patrons of the facility. Disinfectant wipes and sprays are useful for treadmills and cardio machines, but don’t limit their use to those. Dumbbells, free weights, exercise balls, and other similar apparatus should go through the same treatment to ensure a rigorous hygiene and safety standard. Green cleaning supplies can go a long way to encouraging their frequent use by patrons.
Dangers of Insufficient Cleaning for Gyms and Fitness Centers
Dozens of people sweating away in your workout areas. Showers and similar areas creating humidity. General high foot traffic. With all of these factors, gyms can be a real health risk if rigorous cleaning is not done regularly. What’s more, a lack of attention to cleaning can lead to unpleasant smells in the locker rooms and around the machines. There is also the hazard of transmission of bacterial and fungal infections like athlete’s foot, ringworm, and even viruses like HPV or the common cold. Risk of infection can be a significant deterrent to people frequenting your business, so make sure that the place is kept pristine so as to prevent it being a breeding ground for illness. You can also encourage your clients to observe best practices to avoid transmission of illnesses. Remind them not to share towels or drinks bottles. Encourage the use of flip flops in showers, and enforce a shoes and socks policy on the gym floor. Station sanitary wipes and hand sanitizer everywhere: bathrooms, locker rooms, entrances and exits, by machines and weight racks. Make sure that they are frequently restocked. Your clientele will appreciate your commitment to their wellbeing and the cleanliness of the facility. Nancie Brown & Associates uses superior cleaning products to help you keep your business looking and smelling its best, and your clientele in good health. Do you have concerns about how we will clean your specialized equipment, machinery, or unusual flooring? We always check the composition of what we are cleaning before we use products on it, to prevent any damage being done. In our decades of experience, we’ve cleaned millions of dollars worth of complex apparatus. Trust us to keep your machines safe.
