Struggling To Clean Your Gym Floors?

Why Clean Your Gym Floors? A clean gym environment is crucial to maintain membership rates and is the foundation for any great gym reputation. Members of your gym will not want to continue attending a gym that has dirty equipment, floors and has that ‘sweaty gym smell’. While cleaning your gym floors may not sound like a priority, a lot of traffic in and out of your gym will create dirt, grime as well as wear away at your gym floors. Good high-quality gym flooring is not cheap and it is important to protect those investments. Similarly, the health of your gym members should be a top priority and if your gym floors are not properly cleaned regularly, bacteria can build up and can create gunk which will make your gym floors a slip and health hazard as well as smell mouldy and sweaty. As a contract cleaner for a gym facility, it is important that you have high-quality commercial cleaning supplies that are going to deliver results without making a big dent in your budget. This is where multi-purpose equipment like scrubber-dryers as well as concentrated commercial cleaning chemicals are a great long term investment. So how do you...

The Importance of Gym Cleanliness

A gym is an abnormally damp environment where sweat creates moist conditions ideal for germs, bacteria, mould, mildew and viruses. And while you can’t stop the sweating (which after all is the reason for a gym), you can make sure your premises are spotlessly clean at all times so that bugs and nasties don’t get the upper hand. Common germs found in gyms Typical microflora found in gymnasiums can include: Staphylococcus aureus (golden staph) – a common bacterium that lives on the skin and is capable of causing a range of mild to severe infections. Staphylococcus saprophyticus – a bacteria that is a leading cause of urinary tract infections. Salmonella – a gastrointestinal illness with symptoms including fever, diarrhoea and vomiting. Influenza – an airborne virus that, when inhaled, spreads to the respiratory tract where it multiplies. Rhinoviruses – viruses that cause many types of common colds and upper respiratory infections. Dermatophytosis – a fungal infection of the skin also known as ringworm, tinea, jock itch (when around the groin) or athlete’s foot (when on the feet). Gym hygiene statistics There have been a number of studies conducted into gym hygiene in recent years and their findings reinforce the need for constant vigilance by gym owners. For...

WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN PURCHASING A FLOOR SCRUBBER

It can be the fastest way to clean the floors, but what should you look for when purchasing a floor scrubber? The benefits of a floor scrubber is very clear. First of all, dirty water is collected into a separate waste tank rather than dipping a mop back into a bucket filled with dark grey water. Plus, the action of the brushes creates friction with the floor, leaving it much cleaner than other traditional cleaning methods. Also, it’s much quicker, much less labour intensive, and much more efficient providing a clean yet dry floor. Here are some things you need to consider when choosing your next floor scrubber: What type of machine do you want? Do you need electric or battery operated? This choice may come down to budget. If your budget is limited, a 240 V corded machine may be your best bet. Of course, you will be slightly restricted with this, but by using an extension lead can be a simple solution. If scrubbing needs to be carried out while there is a potential risk of people tripping on a cord, the battery type scrubber may be far more attractive from an OH&S standpoint. You also need to...
