Tips on Cleaning Gyms

Cleaning a gym is definitely hard work. The locker room and shower areas must be decked down and cleaned thoroughly each and every visit. Often, the health departments of the community in which the gyms are located have codes and cleanliness standards that the gyms must meet.

Luckily, there are specific chemicals and products that will make your job much easier. Often all you need to do is provide the elbow grease. This is a good time to find a good janitorial supply house and find out what products are available.

Many gyms have mirrors surrounding the workout area. Clean the gym mirrors on a rotating basis. Clean one section each visit. This usually takes care of them.

If you clean the actual gym equipment, you will have your hands full. The equipment, especially the cardio equipment, gets dirty each and every day because of their active use. Wipe down gym equipment with anti-bacterial cleaners to keel them clean and sanitary.

Most gyms are carpeted or many have large rubber mats covering the workout areas. You can vacuum them either way. With the mats, they will need to be damp mopped with an antibacterial cleaner as well.
