The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend the practice of using tested disinfectants on hard surfaces. “Cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in households and community settings.” Balanced Body Clean is a tested disinfectant but like most other disinfectants, Balanced Body Clean has not been specifically tested against COVID- 19.
We do know that Balanced Body Clean has been thoroughly tested with results that kill 99% of bacteria on contact, including E-Coli and Staphylococcus. Balanced Body Clean is a 100% organic disinfectant that we recommend to use on the vinyl surfaces and for complete cleaning of any hard surfaces that have been touched by clients using the equipment.
If you decide to use a non-natural hospital-grade disinfectant on your upholstery, we recommend you follow the instructions for use, applying a second wipe with water only, to help minimize any adverse effects on the vinyl and follow that manufacturer’s instructions.
In addition, Balanced Body recommends:
- Follow guidelines from the CDC as well as local health authorities.
- Clean and disinfect equipment between clients.
- Ask clients to use hand sanitizer or wash hands before and after workouts.
- Wash cotton loops as often as possible. Recommend your clients purchase their own personal cotton loops if they are concerned.
