What does it take to keep your gym clean

Maintaining a clean and healthy environment for your gym members and patrons is essential. Not only does it make the space more pleasant to be in, but it can also help reduce the spread of germs. In this guide, we will outline the steps you need to take to clean your leisure and gym facilities effectively and professionally.

We'll cover everything from sanitizing equipment to cleaning showers. Follow these tips and you'll have a sparkling facility in no time!

One of the most important aspects of keeping your gym clean is sanitizing all of the equipment. This includes weight machines, yoga mats, cardio machines, and more. Wipe down all surfaces with a EN14476, EN13697, EN1276 cleaning product after each use.

We would always recommend using a non-fragrance spray on equipment. Not everyone likes the smell of Sunburst Orange! but rest assured no smells will be left as you will be killing all those germs, bacteria that create the smells

EN Certification confirms that the product has been proven to act against different germs. Always read the label of how to use these products before use.

  • EN14476 will combat Viral germs

  • EN1276 will combat Bacterial germs

  • EN13697, will combat Fungicidail and Yeasticidal germs

Always have separate cleaning supplies and colour codes for different areas of the gym to avoid cross-contamination.

If you allow the use of these sprays for your members always ensure that you have clear usage guides displayed to prevent misuse.

All of ecoSense clients receive a clear QR code displayed on the spray bottle that allows members to scan to see the exact usage instructions. These instructions can be made bespoke for each client.

When it comes to shower cleaning it's essential you use the correct products to remove, body fat, limescale and germs associated with these areas. Don't forget to clean the drains of the showers every day. These can become blocked up very quickly.

Once you've used the correct products to clean your areas correctly you then need to make sure they are well rinsed off and dried. Leaving no chemical trace.

Also, remember that if you have a strong smell of urine don't just use a scented urinal screen to make the smell, you want to use an enzyme cleaning product to actually get to the root cause of the smell. We supply Enzyme cleaning urinal screens that both mask and release Enzymes to remove the smell at the same time.

If you see smears over surfaces most of the time this is just the chemical residue being left on the surface. After cleaning try using just water and a microfibre cloth, Just buff the area and it will be left streak-free.

Cleaning a Gym can be very time-consuming but following these simple tips can help you get the job done quickly and efficiently.

All of this work is often easier to employ a cleaning company. Not only will they have the correct equipment, training, H&S measures in place, systems to check they will also have full responsibility to make sure your site is clean and hygienic while you can concentrate on your members and running your gym.

If you do employ a cleaning company make sure they have experience in leisure and gym cleaning, that way you can be safe in the knowledge your site is being cleaned to the highest of standards.

Cleaning companies will also have teams of cleaners meaning should one member of staff get ill there is no need for panic as there will be another on hand to cover the shift.
