Salon Sanitation – It’s the Law!!
Happy New Year! I am looking forward to an outstanding 2013 and wish you all the best.
Sanitation is one of the most important aspects of the nail salon industry. Proper sanitation prevents the spread of fungal and bacterial diseases from one client to another and helps to ensure safe working conditions within the salon. Many US states complete annual reviews and applicable updates to nail salon sanitation requirements to ensure that the standards offer the most effective approach in reducing client infection.
Sterilizers- All nail salons are required to use sterilizers or disinfect implements. Backscratchers suggests using an EPA approved Cavicide® Salon Disinfectant to clean implements, sanitize salon instruments and wipe down surfaces. Cavicide® is non-toxic and is effective against Tuberculocidal and Mycobacterium, fungicidal, virucidial and is effective against viruses such as Herpes Simplex 1 & 2, Hepatitis B & C and HIV-1, the most widespread of the AIDs related virus.
Backscratchers is the original designer of the SeptiFile® Sanitizable File System. This patented file system is designed to protect each client from cross-contamination and to save time for nail technicians. Simply remove and discard the SeptiFile’s used abrasive, disinfect the file handle in Cavicide ® and apply a new abrasive. The two-sided handle is perfect for customizing compatible abrasives for any service.
Stainless Steel Implements - Backscratchers newest design in Salon Sanitation! Our surgical-grade stainless steel implements come in a Stainless Steel Foot File handle, a Stainless Steel Nail File Handle and a Cuticle Nipper. These precision quality implements are well balanced, light weight and compliant with all sanitation laws. Look for our Stainless Steel product launch on our website January 14, 2013!
Remember, sanitation is the law and it is important for all nail technicians and salons to be compliant, not only for the growth of their business but for the welfare of their clients.
I look forward to reading your thoughts and comments on this subject.
