Clean beauty salon air is a huge issue for customers who are concerned about the potential hazards salon products can have on their health. How your salon smells is a huge indicator of how healthy the air is. Here are 5 features an air cleaner needs to have to literally make you shop a breath of fresh air.
Work-Horse Ethic—Salon products often off-gas from the minute they are opened to hours after they have been used and the service forgotten. With constant use of products that off-gas volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) into the air, a purifier must be able to work around the clock to prevent fumes from rising to an unhealthy level.
A unit with a split capacitor motor is able to do just that. Designed for high revolutions per minute, it can operate safely and effectively around the clock whether you are there or away. Allowing the air to be continually filtered means you and your customers can always count on walking to a salon that smells fresh and clean.
Low to No Maintenance—Just because the cleaner can and should work around the clock doesn’t mean that you should. Vacuuming the outside of the purifier should be all you ever need to do unless you are changing the filter.
This type of low budget, low effort maintenance yields several benefits. You will lower your costs by not having to purchase replacement filters frequently. And it will allow you to enjoy your free time doing something you love rather than replacing the filter.
Produces A Healthy By-Product—The only results your air purifier should produce is air that is as healthy as it can be. Units that use ozone and ionizing technology both produce ozone. And the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has deemed any amount of ozone to be unsafe.
The fact is that in order to be effective, the ozone level would have to be so high that it would be deadly. An air purifier really shouldn’t have to kill for a breath of fresh air.
Uses HEPA Technology—High efficiency particle arresting filters are the same type that hospitals use to insure clean air. They are designed to remove airborne particles as small as.3 microns in size.
The good news is that it will remove not only salon-specific particles such as hair and nail shavings, but will also remove more common indoor particles such as dust, mold and mildew spores, seasonal pollens, bacteria and viruses.
Has A Carbon-Based Filter—Any cleaner that is to be effective against gases, odors, and chemicals must have a carbon filter. Carbon is well-known for its ability to absorb these pollutants. And with an additive that enhances the carbon’s ability to eliminate chemicals it is incredibly effective against removing VOCs that off gas from perms, nail polish and remover, acrylics, hardeners, and dyes.
