Fountain View Recreation Center Annual Cleaning/Maintenance

Posted on July 22, 2022

Fountain View Recreation & Fitness Center closed July 25-31
Indoor pools are closed July 25-August 7

Each year around this time we close Fountain View Recreation Center to do a deep cleaning and perform general maintenance. Here are just some of the many things we do:

  • Clean and buff all floors (this requires moving equipment and furniture)
  • Refinish the giant gym floor and the two fitness studios (this preserves the wood)
  • Clean locker rooms and all lockers
  • Polish all stainless steel items to include restroom stalls, railings, fixtures & more
  • Drain the pools and acid wash them to remove grime and buildup, bring back their shine (this preserves the tile)
  • Power washing showers
  • Clean all windows (there are many!)
  • Replacement of light fixtures
  • Some painting

This type of cleaning and maintenance requires ladders, scaffolding, power washing machines and tools. Some of this maintenance may produce smells (refinishing floors, acid washing pools), which is why workers will be wearing face coverings within the building. And this type of cleaning and maintenance takes time. Fountain View Recreation Center is a beautiful building, and to keep it operating efficiently and to keep it aesthetically pleasing, this annual cleaning and maintenance is necessary and demonstrates good stewardship in our community.

Thank you to all our visitors and members that use the Fountain View Recreation and Fitness Center for your cooperation. We are eager to welcome you back to a fresh facility!
