The gym is a very difficult environment to truly clean and disinfect. It’s hot and moist most of the time as well as very busy.
New Milford, NJ (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
The Vapor Chief steam cleaner is now in place at a well known health and fitness club. With over 5,000 members in this metropolitan location, everything gets dirty very quickly and needs to be cleaned frequently. Members use free weights, treadmills, elliptical machines, stair climbers, and more all day long. The buildup of sweat, dirt, bodily oils and fluids were an issue to clean. Previously the club would use cleaners that were sprayed on and wiped off with a towel. This was time consuming and not as effective. Once the towel was wet, the transfer of potential germs and bacteria just went from one apparatus to another. Cleaners were either not strong enough to disinfect, or they had an unpleasant smell and were consequently diluted, making them even less effective.
Cleaning everything with steam
When the club was approached on the benefits of cleaning and disinfecting with steam only, they took a close look at the process and found it to be faster and far more effective. “The gym is a very difficult environment to truly clean and disinfect. It’s hot and moist most of the time as well as very busy. We need to get in and out and be as unobtrusive as possible to our members. The Vapor Chief steam cleaner allows us to clean and disinfect far better than any other cleaning method.”
Another problem area for any health and fitness club is the bathroom and shower areas. Sinks, faucets, tiles on the floors and walls, toilets, shower handles and drains need to be carefully cleaned to keep bacteria away. Steam is the most logical way of cleaning these areas quickly and effectively and the vapor Chief handles the job effortlessly. It eliminates chemical use and the odor associated with harsh chemicals. Bathrooms are left smelling fresh and more customers are taking advantage of the showers now that they know they are properly cleaned and sanitized.
More steam cleaning uses
The health club also figured out that cleaning the lobby chairs, carpeting and counters was far more effective using the Vapor Chief than just vacuuming. Sweaty members use the seating areas in the lobby, the lounge and the cafeteria. The vapor chief is seen cleaning these areas as well. Members appreciate the extra effort that has been put in place using the steam cleaning method. Juice stains can be removed easier from chairs. Any gum found on the floors is easily cleaned with steam and scuff marks from sneakers and shoes are easily removed as well. The vapor Chief steam cleaner has proven to be as valuable a piece of equipment as the exercise machines themselves
