Goalie Equipment Cleaning
In Victoria BC
Are you looking for goalie equipment cleaning In Victoria BC?
Regular cleaning of your goalie gear is one of the most important things you can do - not only for your equipment but also for your health.
As you know, almost every type of sporting gear can create an extremely nasty smell when left inside a sports bag a little too long.
Goalie Equipment Cleaning And Your Health
Now that nasty smell is actually a warning sign. It's created from dangerous bacteria like MRSA living inside your equipment.
If your skin gets even a small cut or scratch and comes in contact with this aggressive and antibiotic resistant bacteria you can get a serious infection (read this article from Dr. Anthony Abene of the San Jose State Ice Hockey team).
Hockey is a seriously sweaty sport - especially for goalies who typically play the entire game with heavy equipment without a break.
The heat a goalie generates creates a lot of sweat that gets trapped inside thier equipment which then becomes a fantastic breeding ground for all kinds of harmful bacteria.
So if any of your equipment begins to smell, it's time to get it all professionally cleaned and sanitized before you end up with a major infection.
Below is a video report talking about infections and sporting equipment. It talks about football but this is a problem plaguing all sports - even wrestling (where the head gear can cause infections).
