What do we need to clean the changing rooms in the gym?
The hygiene of the changing rooms in the gym includes the cleaning and disinfection of the showers, bathrooms, and locker area.
For this, we must have professional cleaning tools that have an ergonomic design. Among others, we must have brushes, mops, and water collectors.
For cleaning lockers, benches, or other surfaces, we will opt for microfiber cloths or non-woven fabrics.
We must also have neutral detergents, to avoid damaging the surfaces and others of an acid nature to eliminate the remains of lime. As for disinfectants, we recommend that they be effective against fungi and viruses.
The ergonomic cleaning material contributes to considerably reducing sick leave caused by muscle damage or poor posture in the professional cleaning staff.
How often should locker room cleaning activity in the gym?
We must carry the cleaning and disinfection of changing rooms in sports centers out at least once a day.
We recommend it to carry out hygiene at times of lower influx of people or when the center is closed.
Once a week, the areas that are most difficult to access or that require the removal of furniture will be cleaned and disinfected.
How do you organize cleaning in the gym locker rooms?
The cleaning in the locker rooms will be mostly wet, with the help of mops or clothes impregnated with cleaning solutions to remove the remains of visible dirt.
Zones will carry the cleaning and disinfection out. Within the same locker room, distinguish the shower area, the locker area, and the bathroom.
It is essential to dry the surfaces after applying the cleaning and disinfecting products since humidity forms the perfect breeding ground for the growth of some germs.
Why is it so important to ventilate locker rooms in the gym?
Ventilation is a fundamental activity in any space for different reasons.
Good ventilation in the changing rooms helps to limit the infectious microorganisms that may be in the environment. In addition, ventilation is also an effective action to combat bad odors.
We recommend it to ventilate changing rooms, especially after applying detergent and disinfectant products that can be toxic.
How to promote personal hygiene in gym locker rooms?
Personal hygiene also contributes to keeping the changing rooms and the rest of the gym spaces clean and free of microorganisms.
In changing rooms, we recommend it to install automatic soap and hydro alcoholic gel dispensers to promote hand hygiene.
In addition, we can also choose to place shampoo and gel dispensers in the shower area.
For drying hands, we recommend it to use only disposable paper towels. Since they are much less polluting than air dryers.
