What to Consider when Hiring Commercial Cleaning for Your 24-Hour Gym

Lynn Alexander

Studies have shown that the level of bacteria in a gym can be very high and harmful. This means, your 24-hour gym, with a constant stream of customers, can't rely on the small everyday cleaning your staff could provide. You want your clients safe and you want the proper amount of cleaning done to maintain that safety. This will likely lead you to hiring a commercial cleaning service. If you aren't sure how to go about this, consider these few points and how to approach them with commercial cleaning companies.

Organic Cleaning Solutions

One of the things to consider about commercial cleaning services in your gym is the possibility of using organic cleaning options over chemical solutions. The reason for this is due to the large amount of customers that you will have coming in and out of the gym, using equipment, and having large amounts of skin contact with the cleaned surfaces. Allergies vary widely, and if chemicals are used, you may have an increased number of customers with allergic reactions like rashes form. Organic cleaning solutions avoid chemicals, are natural, and can help reduce that chance while maintaining the bacteria removal on the equipment.

Shower Options

Most gyms, especially 24-hour gyms, have shower services. These showers require full cleaning in order to protect customers from mould, mildew, and bacteria. One of the things you should consider is if you want to offer laundry services for towels or hotel style commercial services that include complimentary hygiene options like shampoo. These can make a difference on bundle packages and the type of services you are able to receive from a commercial cleaning company. If you have customers bring their own items, you should also consider mould treatment services in locker areas to cut down on issues with customers leaving damp towels and other items that can cause issues.

Cleaning Hours

In most cases, a commercial cleaning service will work when the business is closed to avoid coming in contact with customers and disturbing their experience. Since you have a 24-hour gym, this may be a bit difficult. You should consider what hours are best for not only, but also the service and your customers. Some cleaning services will offer discounts based on the time of day they are scheduled or the amount of customers that are in the building at the time. This means, that scheduling the cleaning service during the very early hours of the morning or during very late night hours may be the best option. Consider discussing your customer flow with your cleaning service to determine the best time for everyone involved. 

These are just a few of the considerations when you hire a commercial cleaning service for your 24-hour gym. Consider having a walk-through price estimate done with the cleaning service to determine if they are right for you and if they offer what you need.
