Ah, metal lockers – the unsung heroes of storage solutions in workplaces, leisure centres, gyms, and schools. These trusty metal containers keep our belongings safe and organised, while silently bearing the brunt of grubby hands, dirt and germs. But worry not, dear lockers, for we shall come to your rescue! In this blog post, we shall dive into the exciting world of metal locker cleaning (yes, you read that right). So, buckle up and get ready to become a master locker cleaner.

  1. The Importance of Cleaning Metal Lockers: "Cleanliness is next to godliness" – a clichéd phrase, perhaps, but one that holds true when it comes to metal lockers. As public facilities reopen and employees head back to work, keeping lockers clean is paramount to preventing the spread of germs and bacteria. Shared or personal, lockers can quickly become a breeding ground for dangerous germs if not cleaned properly. According to research, some viruses can live on metal surfaces for up to 7 days if not cleaned properly. So, roll up your sleeves and let's get down to business!

  2. The Locker Cleaning Procedure – A Step-by-Step Guide: Fear not, for cleaning metal lockers is an easy task if you follow these simple steps:

a. Sanitise hands: Before you begin your locker-cleaning quest, make sure your hands are clean. This ensures that no germs hitch a ride on your cleaning equipment. Installing an industrial hand hygiene station or dispenser near lockers is a nifty idea.

b. Empty lockers and wipe down with a dry cloth or paper towel: Ensure every part of the locker is accessible by removing all items. Then, use a dry cloth or paper towel to clear any accumulated dust.

c. Use the right tools: Choose non-abrasive cleaning products to avoid damaging the lockers. Disinfectant wipes or rubbing alcohol are great options, while acid, hydrogen peroxide, methylene chloride, and acetone are big no-nos.

d. Sanitise hands again: You've done a fantastic job cleaning those lockers, now make sure your hands stay germ-free too!

Remember, lockers should be cleaned after every use if shared, and every day if used by a single person.

  1. Antibacterial Lockers – A Supercharged Solution: If you want to level up your locker-cleaning game, consider metal lockers with an antibacterial coating. While they still need to be cleaned regularly, their antimicrobial coating helps to reduce and kill bacteria, germs, and cross-contamination. Some companies offer a range of lockers with antibacterial coatings, such as ActiveCoat lockers and Probe lockers with Active Coat. The coating lasts the lifetime of the lockers, making them a great investment for long-term germ defence.

And there you have it – a comprehensive guide to cleaning metal lockers with wit and panache. With these tips, you'll not only prevent the spread of viruses but also maintain a clean and organised environment for everyone. So go forth, and may your lockers always sparkle with cleanliness!
