The Dangers of a Dirty Gym Floor

When dirt collects on a gym floor, it dulls and marks up the surface, shortening the lifetime of your floor and causing you to get less out of your huge investment.

But a dirty gym floor doesn’t just look bad, it’s also hazardous for anyone using it. A floor covered with dust, dirt, and debris can cause athletes to slip, twist an ankle and get seriously injured in a number of different ways. The most important part about gym maintenance is creating a safe playing environment for the athletes who will be using the space. A lack of proper care can lead to a twisted ankle here, a slip-and-fall there and a host of other injuries.

That’s why it’s so important that you take the necessary steps to keep dirt, dust and grit off your gym floor. By following these simple gym floor maintenance tips, you can keep your gym floor cleaner, shinier and safer.

Safety should be the maintenance team’s top priority all year long. Make a devoted effort this school year to keeping your gym well maintained and safe for everyone.
