Why clean it and why does it smell?
So many do not realise the cause of the smell on your equipment. Bacteria eats available consumables, such as sweat, then, it excretes it back on the surface or wherever it takes place. Your hockey gloves, helmet, skates, hockey bag and, well, you get the idea. It gets everywhere and compounds exponentially. That statement answers both questions doesn´t it?
After a very short incubation period bacteria, or as we like to call them, the bugs compound and consume more food sources. As they do they also compound in their excrement creating a noxious odour that is tough to remove. Tough that is until you get tough and send your gear in to us to deal with it!
Considering many of the harmful contaminates found on equipment can be passed around via the air it is important for you own safety as well as that of your teammates to be proactive rather than reactive in the event of an infection.
Kids to Adults
The bugs on our gear have no respect as to whom they latch on or how old they or what sex they are. This means if we use protective equipment in our sports, (aside from our clothes), then we need to be sure to keep it hygienic and clean.
Throughout our lab tests we have conclusively found that regardless of age or sex, of the 13 primary harmful contaminates found on equipment, that they ALL show up on all levels of equipment.
We encourage families who play sports utilizing protective sports equipment to call and create a family program. The same goes for teams or any group playing consistently together. In doing so the opportunity of cross contamination is minimized and keeps everyone proactive, protective and safe. The ACF1 formula is hypo allergenic and eco safe. You can be confident that your gear will have a clean aroma while still feeling comfortable and fit properly without any adverse reactions for those with sensitive skin.
Horse Blanket Service: Catering to 16 Locations Province Wide
As we have entered into year 12 of business we also enter into our 10th season with Greenhawk Harness and Equestrian Supply as well! It has been an outstanding developmental relationship as the patronage to the stores has grown to the point where we have seen shy of 200 blankets in one single day´s pick up!
We encourage you to get your dirty blankets into your local Greenhawk and have them cleaned, repaired and water treated as needed. Service is geared for weekly pick up and return from Ottawa to Essex weekly!
We Encourage Leagues and Teams To Clean It Up
At Athletic Clean we are very fierce in our belief of keeping gear clean and knowledge of what grows on our equipment.
In getting your gear in with your complete team is a great step to eliminate any cross contamination opportunity.
When complete leagues get interested that really ramps us up because that means a complete enrollment has proactively cut down the risk altogether.
Our customers listen to science.
Make Your Hygiene Important
You be the judge, does your gear stink? Honestly?
Testing show your gear needs to be cleaned.
I don't care what anyone tells you; kids that play hockey stink! I know, my kid reeked, so do not let them tell you kids don't sweat, they do. My son has clean gear now and we get it done every three months considering he plays almost every other day now that he is rep. Best thing we could do for him.
Brad K. Hockey Dad, Hockey Lover, Toronto ON
Our son ended up with a staph infection on his skin. It started in a small local area just above the waist and went from there. Every time he skated it irritated his skin to the point he had to stop playing, right in his midget year. Athletic Clean/Hockey Clean came, took his gear, tested it, referred us to a specialist and six weeks later he was allowed to skate again. Awesome company is all I have to say about that.
Julie & Al Hockey Mom & Dad, Orangeville ON
My skates were really hurting me and my coach was concerned when he saw my toe infection. We went to the doctor and he said that I had to stop playing hockey for a month! We were told to clean my hockey equipment. My Mom and Dad tried to have my gear gassed and then cleaned it in bleach and a month later it happened all over again. Then I had my equipment cleaned at Hockey Clean. I have been playing again for this season in 2014-2015.
