Gym owners are faced with dozens of cleaning product choices, all claiming to be the best and most effective. It can be difficult to separate fact from fiction while providing clients with the elevated level of cleanliness that they expect. The ultimate decision on which surface cleaner is best will depend on the gym owner’s preferences, convenience, and cost.
If the pandemic has taught people nothing else, it’s highlighted the need for cleaning equipment after every use and high-touch surfaces multiple times throughout the day. What gym owners should know is that there’s a difference between cleaning and disinfecting.
Cleaning, even by professional standards, removes the majority of dirt and organic matter but also leaves impurities that are simply moved around. In contrast, disinfectants actually kill bacteria, viruses and fungi on surfaces. Disinfectants and sanitizers provide an elevated level of cleanliness. Sanitizers and disinfectants are regulated by the EPA and must adhere to a higher standard than ordinary cleaning products.
Bacteria, viruses and fungi – collectively known as germs – occur naturally in all environments. They’re on and in the body, in the soil and air, and evident on every surface that people touch. Some are beneficial and work to promote health within the body, such as probiotics. Others cause illness and disease. It’s impractical to wash hands or use sanitizer after touching every single object. That’s where sanitizer and disinfectants come in.
Gym owners have options that employees can use to kill germs on frequently touched surfaces that including counters and door handles. Owners of gyms and fitness centers also have access to disposable disinfecting wipes that can be placed throughout the facility for users to wipe down equipment before and after they use it.
There’s a myriad of cleaners, disinfectants and sanitizers from which to choose. The owner of each gym and fitness center will need to decide how much they want to spend and what they want to accomplish – cleaning or disinfecting. There are cost-effective and efficient solutions that don’t require any special knowledge to use.
