Lancaster, Pa. (April 9, 2021) – As gyms, recreation facilities and other fitness spaces begin to reopen, it’s essential to implement proper cleaning and disinfecting techniques, especially with the largest piece of equipment – the flooring. To that end, Ecore, a manufacturer of safety, ergonomic and acoustic performance surfaces, offers a dedicated landing page that addresses the specific cleaning and maintenance needs and requirements for these high-touch, heavy-use spaces as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. This cleaning resources page can be easily accessed via the banner at the top of the Ecore Athletic website.
From how to clean a gym floor to safety regulations for spacing, this page contains essential information designed to help fitness facilities re-open while keeping staff and customers safe. Content focuses on three key areas with expert tips and recommendations presented via a combination of informative articles and videos to help cleaning staff, owners and facility managers adapt to and implement COVID-19 disinfection guidelines and hygiene protocols.
- · Maintenance – Regular maintenance, from cleaning protocols using quality floor cleaners to using entry systems that keep dirt out, will help to maintain flooring appearance and boost consumer comfort and confidence.
- · Disinfection – Beyond basic cleaning, disinfecting kills the pathogens that make us sick. EPA-approved flooring disinfectants kill germs and help prevent foot traffic from spreading them to other spaces – like our homes.
- · Reorganization – From floor decals to mark distance to staggered class scheduling to allow extra time for cleaning, a gym’s footprint for post-COVID-19 operations doesn’t have to require a significant investment.
“Cleaning and disinfection have always been an important part of routine maintenance, but these practices are now paramount,” said Bo Barber, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Ecore. “We created these resources to support our customers and provide them with everything they need to ensure their fitness-focused facilities can reopen and stay open.”
