People spend time at your fitness centers, beauty salons because they want to be healthier & look good, but health and fitness centers offer bacteria and germs ideal places to thrive – warm, moist places like saunas, shower stalls, locker rooms & spa beds. So while your members & customers work out and enjoying the beauty services, they also may be fighting off a host of bacteria that could cause an unexpected illness.
While many patrons will use disinfectant wipes and sprays on treadmills and cardio machines, other high-touch items – like dumbbells, free weights and balls used in close-contact sports – are often neglected. Computer keyboards, for example, can harbor up to 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat and need to be cleaned. Phones, door handles, sofas and even the magazines that are shared from one person to the next are notorious for hosting germs.
