The flu season is almost here and it’s time to start thinking about cleaning and disinfecting protocols. Many gym owners increased the bar on their level of hygiene during the pandemic, but have since relaxed their requirements as life returned to normal. Gym owners need to remain vigilant with flu season fast approaching.
The flu virus is transmitted through droplets that hang in the air and remain on surfaces after an infected person coughs or sneezes. While not as virulent or deadly as COVID-19, gym owners need to take many of the same precautions.
Viruses that cause the flu are easily transmitted and many individuals have a compromised immune system. Up to 650,000 people die each year of the flu and there’s a significant number of individuals that refuse to get a flu vaccination.
Even cleaning by professionals don’t necessarily remove viruses. The chemicals and methods used simply move surface pathogens around. In contrast, specially formulated gym wipes are designed to disinfect and sanitize. That means they actually kill viruses, bacteria and fungi. These types of wipes are governed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and must meet more stringent standards.
Gym wipes are a cost-effective way to maintain a higher standard of cleanliness and can be thrown away after each use. The wipes are applicable for high-touch surfaces such as counters, door knobs and exercise equipment. Placing sanitizing wipe dispensers throughout the gym so patrons can wipe down equipment before and after each use helps curb pathogens and also allows staff to focus more on customers rather than cleaning.
Few people that work out will refrain from the activity, even if they’re ill. Gym owners need to take the initiative to protect their other clients and that’s when gym wipes are an indispensable part of an ongoing sanitizing routine. They’re disposable, cost effective and provide gym owners with a marketable point to attract new customers.
