December 4, 2011 (Powerhomebiz.com) With the increasing number of services being offered and nail and beauty salons has come an increased number of airborne chemicals in the air. They cause air to be unhealthy for clients and for the people who work in your shop.
The good news is that these products don’t have to make salon air hazardous if these airborne chemicals are removed with a purifier that has filters that can eliminate them. The following 5 features have proven to be the most effective in keeping the air clean.
Control Over Rate of Filtration—-When there are a lot more services being provided the air can really get thick pretty quickly. If you know that a particularly smelly procedure is going to happen, being able to increase the speed at which the pollutants are removed is invaluable.
Not only does it keep clients comfortable, but it helps protect the health of technicians and stylists who are in the shop continually day after day. Weekends, evenings and days leading up to holidays can be great for business but can make the hazardous. Being able to clear the air fast is a good thing.
Easily Portable—Since cleaners clean the air that is closest to them first, being able to roll the unit closer to the procedure will help the cleaner help take the chemicals and particulates out faster. And regardless of whether you own your space or rent it, a purifier that can travel with you can from one station to another or across the country.
Enhanced Carbon Filter—Carbon has long been recognized as the best kind of filter to remove gaseous pollutants such as airborne chemicals. But even as effective as carbon is, it needs an additive to enhance its effectiveness at removing volatile organic chemicals. Potassium Iodide has been found to be the most effective at improving carbon’s ability to be effective.
Filter That Eliminate Particles—Fine pieces of nails and hair are common to the air in salons. Add the other more normal indoor pollutants such as dust, mold and mildew spores, pollen, pet dander (from the clothes of people who own them), viruses, and bacteria.
24 Hour Duty—Staying ahead of the airborne chemicals is best done by filtering them out as fast as they evaporate. And pollutants don’t just evaporate when you’re there, they can also continue to evaporate when the shop is closed.
Having a unit with a split capacitor motor allows the cleaner to continue to filter the air safely and effectively whether you are there or not. This type of motor will allow the air to be filtered continuously even through the night when you are done for the day. But its work will pay off again and again as you and your clients open the door to a salon with fresh air.
