Cleaning Fitness Centers

Cleaning Fitness Centers

The following steps will assist you in providing a clean, sanitary, and odor-free fitness environment for your active residents.


Always wear personal protective equipment when handling chemicals. Use the right tools and supplies and always review product labels and chemical SDS.


Before you begin cleaning, be sure to wear your Personal Protective Equipment. You will need gloves and safety glasses.


Check Athletix Wipes dispenser and replenish when needed.


Empty all trash receptacles and replace the trash liners.


Replace the Purell hand sanitizer when needed. Replace T-Cell Deodorizer Cartridges when needed.


Proceed to cleaning the equipment. Always read the label instructions on each bottle to ensure proper use, or refer to the SDS for proper chemical handling. Spray a liberal amount of Turbo Kill disinfectant onto a clean microfiber cloth, and wipe down all areas of equipment where cross-contamination is a possibility.


Always replace your microfiber cleaning cloths as they become soiled. Using Turbo Kill disinfectant, spray and wipe all high contact surfaces like equipment, handrails, door handles, benches and any touch surface areas. The areas need to remain wet for 5 minutes in order to completely kill germs.


Using See Thru glass cleaner and a blue microfiber cloth, clean all glass, mirrors and equipment screens.


Use a backpack vacuum and move in a sweeping motion. Keep the vacuum’s nozzle aimed in a straight line away from you.


For isolated stains on carpet, spray a light mist of Oxy Citrus directly onto the spot.


Press a clean cotton towel over the spot and allow the towel to soak up the stain. Repeat this process until the majority of the stain has been removed.


If the fitness center has a rubber floor, use the T1 Scrubber (for hard surfaces), and for carpets, use an R3 Extractor.


Periodically scrubbing hard floors with the T1, and extracting dirt from the carpet using an R3 extractor will extend the life of the surfaces. These processes will help keep the fitness center odor free.
