Cleaning and Sanitizing Athletic Facilities and School Locker Rooms
Tuesday, September 8, 2015
The cooler weather and beginning of the school year mean that athletic facilities and school locker rooms are seeing more use. Due to the increased potential for skin-to-skin and surface-to-skin transmission of certain diseases, these environments pose particular cleaning challenges that other public spaces do not.
Using the appropriate cleaning products and establishing a comprehensive cleaning program that includes infection control can help prevent the spread of germs that can plague athletic centers and locker rooms. Facility managers also need to incorporate protocols for improving indoor air quality in these areas, as they may be more likely to trigger asthmatic episodes.
At minimum, every athletic facility and educational institution should have a cleaning program that includes the following:
· A regular cleaning schedule that includes protocols for infection control through sanitizing and targeted disinfection
· Appropriate cleaning agents that have been approved by an independent third party for child and respiratory safety
· Procedures that protect the health of janitorial staff and building occupants
· Cleaning equipment that help reduce the amount of chemicals needed to effectively clean and sanitize a given area
