How to increase profitability during Covid

October 15, 2020

While hundreds of gyms and studios remain closed or partly open, due to COVID-19 guidelines, businesses are struggling to keep their doors open. Businesses are struggling with financial sustainability. Membership is down, and people are still hesitant to return to indoor facilities. Business owners must pivot and find new ways to attract members and revenue.

Safety protocol and procedures for disinfecting and sanitizing have never been more important. Most members and instructors do not realize regular disinfecting spray or wipes are not enough to truly clean their mat.

Germs are pathogens


A mat is also a perfect incubator for many of our skin infections. Mats have contagions lurking on them too including strep, flesh-eating strep (yikes!) and a variety of staph, including Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which likes to hang out on fomites and can cause real problems. 

Feel safe, more effective than cleaning supplies

While members and staff may have previously considered mat sprays or wipes as sufficient sanitation measures, heightened concerns have led to higher expectations for how to keep their mats free of harmful germs. Providing the most effective and convenient method of cleaning a mat can be an important element in retaining and expanding your clientele while making staff feel safer.
