Keep Locker Rooms Clean and Dry


Impressing patrons with little luxuries doesn't need to break the bank. Small details can make a big difference. A well-maintained and supplied locker room can go a long way to make a good impression on your guests. By keeping things clean and providing the right amenities, you can please patrons, improve safety and reduce your maintenance costs.

Q: Our locker rooms are sometimes messy, with wet, slippery floors. What should we consider?

A: First, be sure a staff member is regularly checking on the locker room. Handling problems as they occur is better than waiting for guests to complain. Establish a schedule for regular employee check-ins. A checklist near the entrance should be updated after each check-in, so you can stay on top of locker room conditions and become aware of the times of the day that are busier or more problematic.

While there, employees can refill toilet paper and paper towels, empty trash when needed, and keep an eye out for slip hazards, messes and other problems. To proactively prevent slippery wet messes, provide swimmers a way to dry their wet suits. A swimsuit water extractor will remove as much as 95 percent of a swimsuit's moisture in just 8 seconds. This amenity can keep wet suits from dripping on the floor or lockers, causing damage and increasing your maintenance costs.

Q: What else can we do to make our locker room more pleasant for patrons?

A: Small changes can make a big difference. When patrons leave their wet swimsuits hanging out to dry, they not only create slippery puddles and potential moisture damage, they also make for an untidy appearance. Swimsuit water extractors will prevent this problem, and patrons will be much happier if they don't have to tote a wet swimsuit with their other gear.
