Cleaning for
the Leisure Industry

Leisure cleaning is a crucial activity that supports the UK’s leisure industry and helps manage risks connected to health and hygiene.

The leisure industry is a vital part of the UK economy. It includes:

  • Gyms
  • Hotels
  • Sports facilities
  • Restaurants
  • Tourism
  • Travel.

The sector is poised to bounce back from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown, but to do so it must take a rigorous approach to cleaning and disinfection.

This is about meeting customer demands, satisfying health and safety requirements, and protecting customers and staff by reducing the risk of infection.

What are the Hygiene Risks to Leisure Facilities?

There are two major areas of risk from poor hygiene in the leisure industry:

  • Health risks to the public and staff
  • Business risks, including fines, legal action and reputational risk.

These risks existed before the pandemic, mainly from outbreaks of legionella and food poisoning. 

Now, the risk of contagious disease is more acute than ever and leisure facilities must ensure they meet demanding hygiene standards to protect their customers and their livelihoods.

Managing and reducing the risk of poor hygiene will be central to the recovery and economic wellbeing of the leisure industry.

Adopting best practice for this requires clear procedures and the right type of disinfectant to carry out these tasks.

Where Can You Use Oxyl-Pro in the Leisure Industry?

Oxyl-Pro is a multipurpose disinfectant and is therefore ideal for leisure use.

You can use it to disinfect areas where there are high amounts of physical contact, such as gyms.

Showers and changing areas can quickly become breeding grounds for bacteria, with wet and warm conditions.

Gym equipment is also a prime target for germs to spread from person to person – indeed, some equipment can carry more germs than a toilet seat.

Across many different types of leisure facility, it is important to keep handrails, door handles, work surfaces, tables, chairs and bar areas clean.

Systematic cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces, equipment and areas will help to prevent the spread of infections and protect customers and staff.

However, there are other measures leisure facilities must also take.

Many sports and leisure facilities have big seasonal variations in their use. Where there are prolonged periods of inactivity, this can increase the risk of legionella and other forms of bacterial growth.

Therefore, leisure cleaning and managing risk should also involve preventative water treatment. Oxyl-Pro is ideal for this too.

It is highly effective in removing biofilm from pipework and water tanks and acts to eliminate bacteria such as legionella and pseudomonas.

How Should You Use Oxyl-Pro for Leisure Cleaning?

Leisure facilities must be diligent in their disinfection. This requires a systematic and regular approach to cleaning and disinfecting.

  • Applying Oxyl-Pro as a surface disinfectant can offer a high level of protection against bacteria and all enveloped viruses, including COVID-19
  • As a water treatment, Oxyl-Pro removes biofilm from pipework and tanks and is effective in eliminating legionella, pseudomonas, listeria, fungi, yeasts and moulds.

What separates OXYL-PRO Clean from other disinfectants is in the unique formulation. It contains all food-safe ingredients. Hydrogen peroxide is used as the base product and food safe stabilisers are used to create an encapsulated molecule. These molecules only activate and open on contact with specific biological markers, which leads to the hydrogen peroxide only being released when and where necessary. Very little wastage is encountered when compared to standard hydrogen peroxide.
