- On February 17, 2021
Do you ever get tired of trying to clean those hard to reach tiny spaces in your gym? Are your tired of how time consuming it is to constantly disinfect your machines? Do you hate hate how much you spend keeping your gym clean and disinfected? Well, if you said yes to one or more of the above foggers are perfect for your gym.
Why does your gym need a fogger?
There are 3 main reasons:
- Saves Time
- Saves Money as Time is Money!
- Convenient – disinfecting gets much easier.
Disinfectant spray Foggers WILL save you time compared to using using spray bottle solutions or wipes alone. Spray bottles are slow, cause overspray and are ineficent as most of the germ fighting action gets wiped of and ends up on the cloth or paper towel. Wipe the best solution for your gym members to use but are time consuming for staff to clean a gym from top to bottom. Using a fogger will take a matter of minutes to disinfect your entire gym and can get those hard-to-reach spaces quicker and more efficiently.
Foggers will save you money, and yes there is the initial investment of the hardware but it is a one-time cost! The fogging unit itself can last years when maintained properly, and the only recurring cost is the Disinfectant which is true in any disinfecting method. Fogging is actually cheaper than using just spray bottle disinfectants/wipes as the fogger destributes the particles in the most efficent manner. This combined with the time savings will translate into cost savings. We suggest to use a combination of wipes and foggers to optimize your disinfecting routines at your business.
Foggers are more convenient as they require no setup, formal training, and are extremely simple to use. All you need to do is fill the tanks with disinfecting solution and plug the unit. We put the power of disinfection services into your hands.
Foggers are efficient and easy because they distribute disinfectants through a spray. This provides the ability to reach those tough small areas in your gym. As well as efficiently cleaning your machines thoroughly. It is important to properly disinfect your gym as customers may be working out 24/7. Foggers give you the ability to clean machines, surfaces, and hard to reach areas. Plus, the disinfectant works to clean the air at the same time.
