Cleaning Practices for Free Foam Pits
How to Clean a Spieth America Free Foam Pits: • Tidy up the area to eliminate any hazards. • Vacuum carpeted surface. • We recommend wearing a mask while cleaning out the pit. • Empty the foam cubes from the pit. Placing a tarp or sheet of plastic will help keep the area the cubes are pile clean. • Sweep pieces of foam too big for the vacuum. • You can wipe down or spray the pit area with TRUCE disinfectant or a similar product. • As you clean the foam pit area note any problems or missing parts and report any issues. • If the pit edge padding is made from carpet bonded foam steam clean the pit edge with TRUCE disinfectant or a similar product. • If the pit edge padding is made from Vinyl wash with TRUCE disinfectant or a similar product. It is important to note not all gymnastics pits are made the same. They differ in depth and size and are a real challenge to clean. Pits can be cube foam suspended on trampoline beds, enclosed foam, cube foam on top of enclosed foam pit modules, fabric stretched over foam structures, air bags or a mix of different styles. It is really not reasonable to think a pit can be completely disinfected in most cases. The volume of foam would make it very difficult to ensure it was completely disinfected.
• Let the area dry completely and fill the pit with the foam cubes. • Lightly spray the cubes with a TRUCE disinfectant or similar product before the foam cubes are returned to the pit. • Allow the disinfectant to dry before filling the pit. • Once the cubes are returned to the pit you can spray the cubes lightly with TRUCE disinfectant or a similar product. • Allow area to dry before use. • Fill in the cleaning log.
