North Carolina Electrostatic Disinfecting, Sanitizing & Commercial Janitorial Services
If you’re in the Wellness Industry, you know the importance of healthy practices – Plenty of Sleep, Proper Nutrition, Exercise, and Healthy Lifestyle Balance. Why compromise the health of your members with potentially unsanitary conditions? Did you know Fitness equipment review website Fitrated gathered bacteria samples from 27 different pieces of equipment — three treadmills, three exercise bikes, and three free weights — at three different gyms which were part of major chains.
EmLab P&K then tested the samples to determine bacteria levels based on colony-forming units (CFU) – the number of viable bacteria cells — and found there were more than one million germs per square inch on each piece of equipment.
All three pieces of equipment tested positive for gram-positive cocci (a common cause of skin infections and other illnesses); gram-negative rods (which can prompt many types of infections and sometimes resist antibiotics), and gram-positive rods (which can – but don’t often – cause various types of infections).
The exercise bikes and free weight samples also turned up Bacillus – a potential cause of conditions such as ear, eye, and respiratory infections.
With the advanced technology that our service offers, we can help control bacterial and viral outbreaks and minimize their impact.
