MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) – American Fitness in Murrells Inlet is now temporarily closed for several weeks for mold remediation and roof repairs, according to Sheila Spinks, American Fitness General Manager.

Spinks says four types of mold have been found in the 28,000 square foot building. After the mold was first discovered in the ladies’ locker room, the owner wanted to notify members immediately about the finding.

Each piece of equipment, roughly 150 items, has to be cleaned in a “safe area” and taken outside to keep it away from the building, which has been deemed a contaminated environment, according to Spinks.

All American Fitness employees are temporarily laid off right now and the businesses that are subleasing inside the gym are also affected.

Spink says an industrial hygienist will be checking the air quality in the gym on Thursday.
