As experts in fitness facility design & installation, we also know the most effective cleaning and disinfecting technologies and protocols. During the pandemic disinfecting your fitness center geared towards combating Covid-19, but these products and actions will be relevant for years to come as society adapts to new cleaning and disinfecting expectations and overall hygiene concerns.
We have over 20 years of experience and knowledge when it comes to cleaning products and protocols for fitness centers. Which is why we have put together the Four Rules of Fitness Center Disinfection and Gym Safety –
1. Air Disinfection & Air Purification:
Air disinfection and air purification play a critical role in helping businesses maximize their air quality and airflow with proven technologies, instilling confidence in your staff and clientele. This is especially important in a fitness setting with large groups of people sharing a space and exercising. Aerus air purifiers feature ActivePure technology that cleans indoor air and surfaces. Studies show that viruses, bacteria, mold, and fungus can live almost anywhere in hotel rooms, locker rooms, athletic equipment rooms, shared facilities, and transportation. ActivePure Technology can help reduce the spread of germs, reduce bacteria, mold, fungus, and viruses in the air and on surfaces, including bird and swine flu, the corona cold virus, and the virus that causes COVID-19.
2. Disinfecting Electrostatic Sprayers:
Every gym and club should have a disinfecting electrostatic sprayer. They are the best way to deploy disinfectants over large areas, especially those not touched by disinfecting wipes. They’re also highly efficient, covering more square footage. Our favorite is the Protexus Sprayer which uses an electrostatic charge that allows the droplets to attract to the surface, rather than float in the air (which is typically associated with a standard mister or fogger). This touchless electrostatic spray “wraps around” surfaces & objects in 360°, providing 3x more coverage in the same amount of time than traditional spray bottles, buckets, and rags. Plus, unlike invisible air disinfection, sprayers are an impressive show of force that will comfort members when in use. The days of staff members walking around with spray bottles and dirty rags are behind us.
3. Surface Disinfecting Wipes:
Disinfecting gym wipes are more popular than ever because they allow members to take cleaning matters into their own hands. Members want the ability to ensure the surface they are about to touch or just touched is disinfected. Most clubs do not have enough wipe dispensers. We recommend one for every 500 sq. ft. and at least one in every fitness room.
4. Hand Sanitizers:
Hand sanitizer use is at an all-time high, and members expect touch-free dispensers to be within close reach. A pump bottle at the front desk is no longer enough. We recommend one at every entryway, one in every bathroom/locker room, and at least one in every fitness room (typically near the wipes dispensers).
If you need specific recommendations for your fitness facility, we’re happy to develop a custom plan with recommended solutions just for you. Let us help you keep staff and members healthy, and build confidence in the safety of your buildings. Ultimately, this will help you drive membership retention and attraction.
Also, we design your gym, we will include an annual maintenance plan with our service team plus a cleaning supply package as part of our estimate.
