How to Properly Disinfect Your Nail Salon
When was the last time your salon received a deep clean? Since the COVID-19 pandemic struck in March, many businesses have been waiting for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to give the go-ahead. There is a substantial responsibility for salon owners to protect their nail technicians and other salon employees. Will your salon be perfectly clean and sanitary for your returning clients? You can keep your staff and customers alike happy by instituting a more rigorous cleaning regime. Here are some methods to protect those working or receiving services at your premises.
- Personal protective equipment, such as face masks and shields. Staff can also wear gloves
- Staff should thoroughly wash their hands with soap and water between seeing clients.
- It’s a good idea to keep hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol content at all of your nail art stations.
- If your staff change gloves between clients, they can limit cross-contamination.
- When disinfecting utensils between clients, make sure that your staff give the liquid disinfectant time to work, and that utensils are rigorously brushed with soap and water before being left in disinfectant for a period, then rinsed and dried. Most disinfectants take time to work effectively. Look for salon-quality disinfectants over domestic standards, especially those that are EPA-registered as killing coronavirus.
- Similarly, take the time to sanitize surfaces after use. Since your salon will be at 25% capacity, you can rotate which surfaces are in use and clean others appropriately. Remove dirt and debris, wet the surface thoroughly with disinfectant, leave the disinfectant on the surface for the recommended time, then either air-dry or wipe with a clean cloth.
How Often Are Nail Salons Required to Sanitize?
Regular sanitization is important during normal times, but especially when a pandemic threatens the health of everyone.
