Gym Cleanliness: How to Stop Bacteria Transfer in Your Athletic Facilities

Gym mats, locker rooms, and pool decks are among the toughest challenges when trying to maintain cleanliness in school athletic facilities. Without a proper cleaning system, your custodial team has little chance to stop the spread of staph infections, ringworm, and other health issues caused by the bacteria found in gymnasiums. Here is a superior approach to gym cleanliness to consider.

 

How Dirty Can Gyms Get?


When you combine heavy amounts of perspiration, a high number of students, and the hygiene habits of some young athletes, it is easy to see how bacteria can fester in gym locker rooms, wrestling mats, and other athletic facilities during the school year. Regular outbreaks of ringworm and staph infections (including MRSA) caused by bacteria spread through athletic facilities show just how dirty gyms can get during the school year.

 

Unfortunately, the cleaning systems most custodial departments have in place are not capable of removing the bacteria and preventing a rash of infections that can affect athletic performance and hurt your school's public image. Simple mopping is much more effective at spreading bacteria to different parts of the school than actually eliminating it on the spot. On the other hand, No-Touch Cleaning gives your crew the ability to stop bacteria from spreading and keep student athletes protected from infection.

 

A New Standard of Gym Cleanliness


Too often, mops and rags carry germs and bacteria from one area to another. In athletic facilities, that means ringworm and pink eye can travel from wrestling mats to locker room benches and from pool decks to restroom seats. Kaivac's approach to cleaning gymnasiums and locker rooms is another example of its revolutionary No-Touch Cleaning Systems. By taking mops and rags out of the equation, Kaivac has established a cleaning method that removes soils and the bacteria that cause infection from facilities. Cleaning crews remove the bacteria before they can spread.

 

Kaivac uses metered injection of cleaning solutions as part of its spray-and-vac system. This type of soil removal is 60 times more effective than using a mop. In a test on school wrestling mats, Kaivac's system removed 99.7 percent of soils detected. The spray-and-vac method delivers a grade of cleaning you can feel comfortable with in your school. The hands-free cleaning system delivers a much higher standard of gym cleanliness and protects custodialworkers from having to touch contaminated surfaces.

 

Since this same system is ideal for school restrooms, kitchens and may other areas of your facility, Kaivac's no-touch cleaning method is a must if you want to have your cleanest school year yet.
