Wipe Out All Germs With Gym Wipes!

Posted by Ali Tariq on June 26th, 2022

You may clean your gym regularly but it is probably not enough if you don’t clean with gym wipes. More than just dusting, mopping and wiping with wet clothes,  disinfecting using gym wipes reduces the growth of pathogens significantly and reduces its ability to contaminate. 

A gym wipe is a moist wipe that is used to clean and most importantly disinfect the gym equipment and surfaces to keep them from germs.

An essential part of running a  successful gym is in maintaining a healthy and clean gym environment. 

Gyms for public use have a high traffic of people from different places making it a contact area for dirt, dust, germs and bacteria. These bacteria or germs stick to the people’s hands, feet and body and when they enter gyms they touch the gym equipment transferring the germs to them and others who visit the gym the next time contact the germs and the cycle continues.

Also, these germs can be found anywhere, in the air, floor surfaces, gym machines, bodies, door knobs, light switches, handrails, locker rooms, basements including porous and non porous surfaces.

Interestingly enough, these pathogens are viable and can survive for a few days before they die off. But they survive long enough for the next person to easily contact it. This way diseases are easily spread from one person to another. When there was an outbreak of the novel Coronavirus, gyms were shut down for a while because it was a potential site for easy transmission of the virus.

Why is just cleaning your gym not enough?

Cleaning your gym with probably a cloth and soap  is such a beautiful idea , but it is definitely not enough to get rid of germs and bacteria already  viable and living on the surfaces of gym equipment. 

Cleaning merely removes visible dust and dirt from surfaces but can not necessarily remove the germs and bacteria that can cause infection and diseases as much   disinfecting and sanitizing  would have done.  Sanitizing kills pathogens on surfaces within 30 seconds and drastically reduces the amount of pathogens.

Benefits of cleaning and sanitizing your gym
