Trust the Experts at SOLID.
Gyms and fitness centers are high-volume usage facilities and are filled with high-touch surfaces. Therefore, they must be kept healthy, safe, clean, and odor-free. Consumers across the board expect a better environment these days, and gyms, health clubs and fitness centers are increasingly under pressure to provide it.
A properly maintained, sparkling clean facility will help keep your member retention rate high. According to a recent IHRSA (Global Health and Fitness Association) report, 90% of members are likely to renew their membership if a club is “perceived to be extremely clean.”
Your members and guests can work out happily and without worry when your daily janitorial protocols are complemented by regularly scheduled specialty surface care solutions provided by SOLID’s expert craftsman.

Providing a Clean, Healthy Environment
A surface that “looks” clean doesn’t mean it is clean. SOLID will work to assess your institution’s needs and provide a customized surface care plan on a planned, periodic schedule that works best for your schedule and eliminates downtime.
Enhanced Cleaning Protocols for Gyms and Fitness Centers
From the front door to the reception desk, to equipment and locker rooms, everything in a gym or fitness center is a shared space. Therefore, any one of these high-touch, high-traffic areas can become an infectious disease hotspot.
Going beyond the standard spray and wipe approach that can cause cross-contamination, SOLID’s trained technicians can effectively and efficiently clean the hardest to reach surfaces with electrostatic sprayers. The electrically charged disinfectant clings to and envelopes every side of vertical and horizontal surfaces, dramatically increasing the effectiveness to kill harmful viruses.
Resourced & Ready
Staff shortages have caused many janitorial companies to be inconsistent with the level of service they are able to provide. SOLID is a national team of self-performing surface care experts. We currently have 35+ office locations with a team of 500+ surface care experts caring for over 700 million square feet of commercial flooring annually across all 50 states and Puerto Rico – and growing!
Locker rooms and rest rooms are some of the most-used areas and require proper odor elimination processes. Unpleasant odors can increase member’s fear of serious health concerns and create an unsatisfactory experience.
High foot traffic can take a toll on floors and carpeted areas. Make a great first and lasting impression to clients and staff with deep cleaning and maintenance methods that leave floors not only clean but also dry and safe, preventing slips, trips, and falls. Align your space with a surface care team of experts that care about your great assets. In addition, SOLID is an IICRC-certified firm, and all SOLID carpet care systems are CRI certified, giving you the assurance of sustainable methods. Our products and processes are selected to protect Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) while reducing carpet impact on landfills. Read More
Reduced Maintenance Time and Costs
Often found in high-traffic areas, vinyl and resilient floors are easily restored by performing deep cleaning and applying specialized sacrificial wear layers so the floors look their best while ensuring longevity. Save staff time and lower maintenance costs with high performance coatings that eliminate the need to continually strip and wax resilient floors.
Increased Member Satisfaction
Members, visitors, and staff are reassured, and satisfaction increases when their surroundings look and is clean and healthy. We can work with your facility to provide antimicrobial coatings to reduce nosocomial infections. SOLID provides deep cleaning and surface care services that eliminates odors and delivers a favorable and lasting impression for all occupants.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can’t my janitorial staff keep my fitness center clean and healthy?
Post-pandemic, the first and most important responsibility is to create a clean and safe environment for your health club’s staff and members. To achieve that, routine cleaning is not enough—you’ll have to add more deep cleaning and sanitizing to your cleaning regimen by surface care experts like SOLID as members return to your gym. High-touch surfaces have to be thoroughly cleaned at least once a day, more, if possible, to reduce the risk of getting and spreading infectious disease. SOLID offers deep cleaning and antimicrobial treatments that supplement your daily janitorial protocols. We go beyond the standard spray and wipe approach by using electrostatic sprayers that effectively and efficiently clean high-touch and hard-to-reach surfaces.
What do you recommend for carpet care?
Daily vacuuming with a high-quality vacuum to remove debris from the surface and deep in the carpet will improve indoor air quality (IAQ) and will help to maintain the carpet’s color and performance. We also suggest a quarterly deep extraction clean. Dry extraction is a great option because there is no downtime, and no wet floors to cause potential hazards. Unlike hot water extraction that can leave dirty water behind, the dry polymer traps dirt and debris and then it is vacuumed away.
How do you care for Resilient flooring like LVT?
Additional care is needed to extend the life of the vinyl, preserve aesthetics, and protect your investment. Planned, periodic maintenance can include deep cleaning, applying wax and specialized sacrificial wear layers, and high-performance coatings. The frequency of this maintenance should be based on usage and foot traffic in the area.
What kind of high-performance coatings do you offer?
SOLID’s expert craftsman can apply innovative, semi-permanent high-performance coatings to resilient flooring. This keeps floors cleaner and healthier, retains their appearance longer and at reduced maintenance operating costs.
Can SOLID assist with tile and grout restoration?
Yes, if you’re considering deep cleaning, polishing and restoration, stain removal, applying a topical and impregnating sealer, or a high-performance coating, SOLID can help. We can also assist with grout cleaning and coating, repairing chipped or cracked grout, and adding sealants and colorizations to restore and protect grout lines.
Can you repair or restore metals like elevators and stairwells?
Yes, whether architectural or ornamental, we can assist with routine maintenance or total restoration of your stainless steel, bronze, nickel and silver plating. Scratch removal, re-graining and highlighting, field oxidation, finish changes, oiling or lacquering, restoration, and protective coatings and coverings are a few services that we offer.
What type of fabrics or textiles do you care for?
Seating and cubicle panels are often treated like napkins. It’s not pleasant to think about, but that is the reality of eating, drinking and sitting at a desk or a commons area for hours at a time. Then add on the complications of a pandemic. A restorative clean with proven methods and chemistries will improve the appearance of textiles and give employees and travelers confidence that they are in a clean and healthy space.
