The Benefits of a Professional Gym Cleaning Service

Did you know that typical free weights harbor 362x more germs than a toilet seat? Treadmills and exercise bikes are even worse! At the beginning of each year, many people make their way to the gym with new goals and fitness resolutions. According to Shape magazine, maintaining a routine is the key to getting fit, and many who take a break never start again .

Don’t lose those new members or drive away your existing ones. A professional commercial cleaning company that offers gym cleaning services can meet all your needs for a clean, healthy, profitable gym.
 

A Clean Gym Keeps Members


The busiest time for new memberships at most gyms coincides with flu season, and more people using the equipment means even more germs. But cleanliness remains important throughout the year. Your potential clients have probably heard some statistics about how germy gym equipment can be. They may decide to exercise at home if they think the gym poses a health risk.

Getting gym-goers in the door and onto a regular workout schedule is the only way to help them reach their fitness goals. Make sure your patrons feel confident and relaxed, knowing they’re working out in a clean environment. Do your part—by getting your gym professionally cleaned--to keep them free of colds and the flu so they can stick to their workout routine.

Keeping your members healthy and your equipment clean also protects your staff. A few staff members calling in sick can cripple your business, especially during busy times.
 

You’re a Pro at Your Job, Cleaners are Pros at Theirs


You and your staff are committed to serving your patrons. Whether you’re enrolling new members, showing them how to use equipment safely, or training them to crush their goals, you give it your all. You don’t need the distraction of cleaning. 

Even if members are conscientious about wiping down equipment, doing so doesn’t eliminate all bacteria. It may just spread it around.

A professional gym cleaning service knows how to disinfect all the surfaces in your gym, using the right tools and cleaning protocols. You should focus on your core business and trust the pros to expertly clean your gym.
 

Gyms Have Their Own Cleaning Requirements


Let’s face it—a gym can get gross. Not only do people sweat on surfaces in the workout spaces, locker rooms present their own cleaning challenges. There are odors to tackle, along with the potential for mold or mildew.

Then there are the floors. People track in grime, rain, or snow from outside, and you don’t want to create surfaces where people can slip. Your floor needs to look great too, since it makes an impression as soon as someone walks through the door. Floors require professional attention from a commercial gym cleaning service on a regular basis.

Find a cleaning service that is familiar with the specific needs of gyms. Confirm that they will use hospital grade disinfectants, HEPA filters, and other state-of-the-art equipment. Make sure they clean and disinfect all workout equipment, machines, door handles, counter tops, sign-in stations, and sales desks. They should clean at a frequency that can keep up with the volume of business at your gym, and be ready to answer any questions you might have.
