The Challenge with Pool Locker Room Summer Cleanliness

Once the kids get out of school, the locker room traffic in both public and club pools skyrockets. The pool locker room and the connecting restroom are constantly busy, both from kids taking summer swimming lessons and families spending a day in the sun. Excess water, dirt tracked in from outdoors, and other soils all combine to make a floor that's a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. To ensure that everyone will have an enjoyable day at the pool, keeping these rooms clean and safe should be your first priority.


Physical Safety


Locker rooms and restrooms are tiled for a reason: water that drips onto it can be easily removed. Unfortunately, this means that the slick floor surface holds water right on top, which makes for a slippery place to walk. Between kids running in straight from the pool and people coming out of the showers, water drips off people all day long right onto the locker room floor. Old-fashioned mopping doesn't really do the job, as wet mop strings simply push the moisture around without picking all of it up. Using a Spray-and-Vac system solves this problem easily by removing all the water from the floor surface. The high pressure spray washes away surface bacteria, and then the powerful vacuum removes all the moisture on the floor's surface—leaving it clean, dry, and safe to walk on.


Kids


As well-behaved as they may be, most kids will be the cause of a great deal of the dirt and germs in any pool locker room. They tend to run around barefoot, tracking in grass, soil, and germs from the outside. Smaller children may drop their wet bathing suits onto the floors and benches while they're changing and transferring bacteria to those surfaces or onto their suits.


The more children you have using your pool area, the more often you'll have to clean the locker room and restroom area. If possible, it's a good idea to set aside one specific area of the locker room for children, using friendly directional signs, such as "Family Changing Area" or "Kids' Cleaning Zone." This signals to parents that their children should stay in one area, but in a positive way, and will help to keep the worst of the mess contained in one area.


Bacteria


Rashes and other skin problems can often be traced back to contact with dirty surfaces in a pool locker room or restroom. The moist environment, combined with the large amount of bodies that congregate together, makes this area a perfect spot for germs to grow. Using the spray and vacuum together helps to eliminate this problem. By spreading an environmentally friendly cleaning solution over the room's surfaces, you can remove germs, rinsing them onto the floor to be vacuumed up and removed. As a result, your pool area will be a cleaner and healthier environment for the whole family.
