What do we use for routine cleaning?
Cleaning hard surfaces
In most circumstances, cleaning is undertaken with detergent and hot water. It’s old fashioned, but it’s effective and it works and is completed on all reachable surfaces at least once daily.
Cleaning soft or porous surfaces
For soft or porous surfaces like fabric or leather, detergent is used. If more thorough cleaning is needed, fabric surfaces will be steam cleaned. Leather has special cleaning requirements to ensure the leather is not damaged during the cleaning.
If soft or porous surfaces require regular cleaning, such as seats in offices, it may be more effective to use a removable, washable or disposable cover. You may notice these covers in place, these will be cleaned or replaced as regularly as we would clean other soft surfaces.
When training in the gym and group fitness space you must carry and use a towel to shield yourself from contact with soft surfaces on the equipment.
What do we use to disinfect surfaces?
Disinfecting hard surfaces
Generic disinfectants are deemed suitable for use on hard surfaces. Disinfectants in use at WynActive include alcohol-based disinfectant in a concentration of at least 70%, chlorine bleach in a concentration of 1000 parts per million, or sprays that contain quaternary ammonium compounds. These chemicals will be labelled as ‘disinfectant’ on the packaging and must be diluted or used following the instructions on the packaging to be effective. WynActive is also deploying disinfectant fogging where appropriate, by trained and licenced technicians.
Disinfecting soft or porous surfaces
Disinfectant is not suitable on some fabric surfaces as it only works with extended contact time with the surface. for this reason, most public access furniture has been removed. Disinfectant, of types similar to those mentioned above, are regularly used to disinfect leather and vinyl surfaces throughout the gym and fitness areas. Other soft and porous surfaces, such as carpets and furniture are cleaned at least weekly, by way of steam cleaning and fogging, where appropriate, by trained and licenced technicians.
