Keeping casinos, gaming and RSL clubs germ-free - sustainably!

The spread of germs through everyday surfaces

One of the main takeaways from these past two years is that the spread of viruses and germs through contact with everyday surfaces poses a very real health concern. We now know that some of these potentially infectious bacteria can survive on surfaces for days, weeks, and even months on end. So touching these surfaces effectively amounts to shaking hands with everyone who has touched these surfaces before you in the past week. 

Places of high-touch surfaces: casinos, gaming clubs, and RSL clubs

Casinos, gaming clubs, and RSL clubs welcome a high number of visitors every day. As such, they have heaps of potential touch areas to consider. From pokies to roulette wheels and slot machines, chips, tables, chairs, and everything in between. And every time a handle is pulled, or a chip slid across the table, millions of bacteria are passed around. In fact, according to a recent study made in the US, a slot machine often has more germs than your average toilet seat at home

As an owner or manager of one of these businesses, you want to ensure safe and disinfected environments for your patrons, keeping them at ease, happy, and healthy. You also want to provide a quick and efficient cleaning solution for your staff to keep your facilities clean and sanitized. This can be a total dealbreaker to keep your clients coming back.

The antibacterial wet wipe – a fast solution

Paper towels and spray used to be the norm for disinfecting surfaces. Sprays often contain harsh ingredients such as alcohol, bleach, ammonia, or phenol, which are dangerous to inhale and dry out your hands. From a club owner’s perspective, if your venue has a lot of different sensitive surfaces, such as button panels, electronics, upholstery, and wood, then cleaning suddenly becomes a precarious (and often costly) undertaking involving an arsenal of products.

Wet wipes are great for quickly sanitizing surfaces, fast – as long as they don’t contain plastic! Most conventional wet wipes contain plastic material, which can take up to 100 years to decompose. During this time, they wreak havoc on our sewer systems, pollute our waterways and oceans. 

So, what do you do if you run a business with high foot traffic to ensure clean, disinfected surfaces without ruining your machines, or endangering the planet?
