When you walk into your gym, you're typically looking at dozens of different types of bacteria and viruses, though you're not going to notice. The typical gym sanitizing products will be great for a few minutes, but as soon as the products dry, those harmful pathogens will begin to collect again. Re-contamination is a massive problem in gyms. At GermiShield, we have the solution with our quarterly antimicrobial treatment for gyms, spas, exercise facilities, gym equipment, and sports centers in and around Columbus, GA.

Why Do Gyms Collect So Much Bacteria?

Think about what goes on in a gym, and you'll begin to get a good picture of why gyms collect so much bacteria. Everyone there is sweating, heavily breathing, and possibly -without realizing it- spitting or bleeding. These people come into contact with equipment, door handles, lockers, benches, drinking fountains, showers, and bathrooms. Although they may be healthy overall, everyone's sweat and spit will cause bacteria, mold, fungi, and mildew to flourish. The next person to touch that door handle or pick up that dumbbell will add to the bacterial growth while picking up the pathogens left by the last person. Wiping everything down only creates temporary protection.

What Are the Dangers of an Unsanitary Gym?

Keeping your Columbus, GA, gym sanitary isn't just important so you look good and comply with local regulations; certain dangers come with an unsanitary gym. This makes it more essential that you have our quarterly antimicrobial service. These dangers include:

  • A false sense of security - Of course you want your gym to look clean, but if you just wipe it down so it looks clean, you offer your members a false sense of health and security. They may become more relaxed, and therefore more prone to picking up a virus that could be pretty serious.
  • A trip to the hospital - Not every virus is going to land someone in the hospital, but something like MRSA or COVID-19 definitely could. Your members could spend time in the emergency room, might end up needing life-saving surgery, and could rely on antibiotics and other prescriptions, possibly for the rest of their lives.
  • A possible lawsuit - If someone does contract a virus or get infected by bacteria in your gym, you could face a costly lawsuit that might end in a costly settlement for the individual. Depending on the size of the lawsuit, your gym could be in serious danger.
  • A damaged reputation - When people become sick or infected at your gym, the word is going to spread. Your reputation could end up damaged, which is going to hurt your business.
  • A possible fine - During a federally mandated gym inspection, if the inspector finds out you don't properly sanitize your gym and gym equipment, you could face fines and a possible temporary or permanent shutdown.

Why Aren't Disinfecting Wipes and Regular Products Effective?

You should use disinfecting wipes and regular sanitizing products as a way to encourage cleanliness and health in your gym, but they're not as effective as you might think. The problem is that disinfecting products need to sit wet for 5 to 10 minutes to effectively kill bacteria. Even then, those products aren't strong enough to kill all the bacteria present on your gym equipment. As soon as the products are dry, they become ineffective. You can see how only a few minutes after disinfecting, your gym equipment will continue the growth of bacteria. Researchers have found the influenza virus, MRSA, strep-bacteria, and E. coli in gyms, and you do not want to harbor and spread those germs!

Gym Disinfecting Services in Columbus, GA

Gyms, Exercise Facilities, Sports & Spas are places that are constantly contaminated with viruses, bacteria, fungi, mildew, mold, and related odors. Despite the best efforts & intentions by management to keep their facility safe by cleaning & providing disinfectant wipes during the day, it's simply not enough.


 Day Care Centers

By the end of a typical day in a childcare facility, high touch surfaces are covered in bacteria that can compromise a child’s health. One viral outbreak forces parents to miss time from work and creates negative perceptions.


Residential Housing

 Residential and multifamily housing often encounter multiple issues from fire, flooding, odor control, and mold and mildew. The results can be devastating and affect multiple units in apartment buildings, condominiums, townhouse and even multiple rooms within a single family home.


According to the CDC, 1 to 3 million serious infections occur every year in senior living facilities and as many as 380,000 residents in these facilities die of infections every year. Nursing homes are among the most common places where C. diff infections can happen.

Senior Living Homes



According to the CDC, each year, an average of 20,000 children younger than 5 years are hospitalized because of flu-related complications. In school environments, high touch objects can be efficient intermediaries for spreading person-to-person and person-to-home microbial contamination.


Air Vents Treatment

Mold Treatment


   Odor Deoderize

Molds are part of the natural environment and therefore can end up growing in your home due to no fault of your own. All molds need moisture to grow and so we can end up with Molds on our home when we don't even know it, in places where moisture has crept inside. Mold potentially can cause serious health problems.

I                        ndoor air quality can have a major impact on your health and comfort. Over time the air ducts in a home build up with dust, debris and even mold. Removing these contaminants provides your home with cleaner air and can make your heating and cooling systems run more efficiently.

A pleasant scent makes a wonderful impression on everyone who walks in your door, but an odor problem can ruin that impression. GermiShield Odor Control Services eliminates tough odors, freshen the air, and leave your facility smelling great!

Disinfecting procedures should focus on commonly touched surfaces and surfaces that come into direct contact with people’s bare skin each day. The CDC cites close physical contact and equipment sharing as reasons for outbreaks in athletic facilities. Researchers have found MRSA, E. coli, strep-bacteria and the influenza virus in gyms and on athletic equipment.

A MAJOR PROBLEM is that traditional cleaning and disinfectant products are ONLY effective for a few minutes. These products are required to sit WET for at least 5 to 10 minutes, in order to kill ANY bacteria. Once the disinfectant DRIES, they are no longer effective in killing the next harmful pathogen that it encounters. Therefore, the re-contamination cycle can occur in just a few more minutes, even though you just disinfected that surface.

Dwell or Contact Time

Dwell time (or contact time) is the amount of time the surface must remain visibly wet in order to kill pathogenic microorganisms before the disinfectant is wiped off. The surface needs to be left undisturbed. A common problem is that most products typically require to dwell times upwards of 5-10 minutes.
