Professional Vinyl And Leather Cleaning Services
The key contributors to the rapid deterioration of medical and gym equipment is the buildup of dirt, dust, sweat and body oils. It is these sweat and body oils that are the most damaging and the greatest catalyst for damage if not professionally cleaned and conditioned regularly. Body oils, sweat and dirt are filled with bacteria which effectively work to break down vinyl’s protective coating.
The buildup of body oils and sweat typically starts to initially present itself as damage to head rests, arm rests and leg rolls first, from the oils, sweat and dirt that leave our heads, arms and legs as we recline on or use furnishings.
The best way to protect medical and gym equipment from having this occur is to undertake professional medical and gym equipment cleaning regularly and not give any spills, sweat, dirt or body oils a chance to absorb or do any damage.
Whilst it may be tempting to clean your medical and gym equipment with non-specific medical cleaning products such as baby wipes, washing up liquid or spray and wipe type products, the damage they do to medical grade vinyl upholstery is detrimental. Non-medical grade vinyl specific cleaning products will break down and eventually strip the seal or coating on the vinyl, leaving it dry and exposed to absorbing even more dirt, oils and sweat, which then leads to drying, cracking and colour loss.
The Leather Doctor’s medical equipment cleaning and gym equipment cleaning services use the highest quality medical grade vinyl cleaning products to protect their finishes. Our fully trained medical equipment cleaning and gym equipment cleaning specialists are able to help both as needed or can be booked in for regular cleaning services.
