The Problem: Germs are not team players.


Germs, such as bacteria and mould, like to settle down and start a family in the same conditions as we do- warm, cozy and not too dry. Your locker room and sports goods make perfect homes.

Germs can last 24-48 hours on surfaces, during which time things like bacteria reproduce exponentially. One single cell can become more than 8 million cells in less than 24 hours.

How do they get there?

  • People bring bacteria from home, school, work, play etc., which thrive in a sweaty environment
  • Sports equipment is a feeding ground for hungry germs looking to grow their families
  • Janitorial staff unknowingly spread germs surface-to-surface on cloths and mops etc.

There are a million ways that germs can affect your team or sports facility. Although many microbes are a necessary part of life, the few that are bad are really bad and can cause sickness, disease and in some cases, death.

The Solution: GERMGUARD


The GERMGUARD 3 Step (Clean – Disinfect – Protect) Program offers you the opportunity to treat high-touch surfaces with our world-class antimicrobial surface treatment.

Below are the top five areas that you can treat to reduce germ populations.
