Cleaning of Gyms and Sports Centres

Many people are going in and out of these facilities throughout the day. It is vital to establish a suitable hygiene Plan, as these spaces need to be cleaned thoroughly.
Critical areas include the swimming pool, spa, changing room and toilets. The equipment and items used by users are also essential.

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know

Gymnasium cleaning involves having an adequate hygiene plan that guarantees the effective cleaning of all areas of the gymnasium.

Areas such as swimming pools, bathrooms and showers should be monitored to a greater extent as they are considered particularly vulnerable to bacterial attack. On the other hand, it is also important to control the cleanliness of the fitness room and the machines and objects used by users in that environment; they can easily become points of accumulation of dirt and sweat.

This is a highly specialised task that should always be carried out by professionals specialised in chemical cleaning, otherwise the use of unsuitable products can cause irreparable damage to the equipment’s operating systems.

The products used in the cleaning of gyms should be respectful and harmless, both for the materials that are part of the gym, as well as for the people who are in contact with them. For this reason, the use of ecological products is recommended, as they improve the environmental quality of the gymnasium.

With regard to materials, which are sometimes closely linked to the products, it is common to use microfibre cloths or mops due to their antimicrobial effects and the reduction in dust attraction to the machinery. In general terms, we highlight the following:

Scrubbers with brushes that operate permanently with clean water.
Microfibre cloths and mops with high cleaning power and quick drying, without producing bacteria as they are inorganic.
Chlorinated disinfectant detergents for cleaning and disinfecting.
Neutral disinfectant detergents for cleaning surfaces where it is not advisable to use sodium hypochlorite because it can damage some materials.
Disinfectants with didecyldimethylammonium chloride to insist on the disinfection of places where the neutral product has been used.

The protocol for cleaning sports centres and gyms is part of a Hygiene Plan drawn up after a study of the facilities and equipment that need to be maintained.  It is important to know the number of subscribers and the regular use of each of the areas.

The most critical areas to be taken into account in the gymnasium cleaning protocol in order to organise tasks, rotation of shifts and routine supervision are:

Changing rooms: essential to take maximum care in microbiological cleaning with broad spectrum disinfectants.

Showers: Body dirt left on walls, floors and partitions should be removed with chlorinated disinfectant. Attention should be paid to limescale build-up.

Water areas (spa, swimming pool): Attention to floors is vital because of the continuous contact with bare feet. The use of pressure machines is not advisable in these areas.

Machine room: Sweat on machines spoils materials, leaves a bad smell and can transmit diseases. The use of neutral disinfectant detergents is recommended.

When the gymnasium closes its doors, deep cleaning should be carried out. With growing concern about the spread of viral diseases such as Covid-19, many fitness centres are now considering disinfection methods such as hydrogen peroxide and ozone foggers. These are adjuncts to cleaning protocols, rather than routine methods.

Sports centres must have a Hygiene Plan that is appropriate to their needs and that meets the requirements for the proper maintenance of their facilities and equipment. This plan is very important to follow, especially if there is a water area (swimming pool, spa, sauna…), which is continuously subject to controls by the public administrations. Due to the large number of visitors, a cleaning rotation system is established that takes into account the times when the facilities are most used.

There are a series of critical points such as toilets, changing rooms and the water area where cleaning must be more exhaustive and carried out more frequently to avoid the proliferation of fungus and skin diseases. In some areas, maintenance tasks should be carried out three times a day to ensure good hygiene, as we are talking about places where the sweat of the athletes can affect the state of the surfaces (for example in the machine room) and the odour of the rooms.

If you do not have a Hygiene Plan, Tot-Net’s Quality and R&D Departments can work together in coordination with the client to develop the one that best suits your facilities. You can consult our cleaning service for sports centres or request a no-obligation quote.

In order to carry out cleaning in sports centres effectively, it is essential to have, first of all, an adequate hygiene plan that guarantees the cleanliness of all areas of the centre.

Special attention must be paid to areas such as swimming pools and the water area, changing rooms and toilets, as they are particularly critical in terms of hygiene. Furthermore, the cleanliness of the fitness rooms, as well as all equipment and objects used by the users, must be thoroughly controlled.
