When a woman goes to a beauty salon not only does she want to look beautiful when she’s done, but she wants to feel relaxed and refreshed as well. Improving beauty salon air quality is probably one of the most important factors that contribute to feeling good about the salon experience when she leaves.
Here are 3 steps for improving beauty salon air quality that will work, and not only keep your repeat customers coming back again and again, but will attract new customers by making your beauty salon’s name a buzz word all over town.
Close the Doors-Many salons keep their doors open. So whether their doors open into a shopping mall or to the outside, the open doors let in noise from shoppers, and/or noise, smoke, dust, and dirt from traffic. Keeping the doors closed creates a haven where clients can get away from the hectic pace and clamor of daily life.
Something as simple as closing the door does a lot towards improving beauty salon air quality as well as making your shop a more restful and relaxing place to be.
Regulate Temperature and Air Circulation–If you’ve ever had to sit in a room that was either too hot or too cold, you know that it’s unpleasant and is an experience that you remember with annoyance, and it is certainly not one you’re willing to pay to repeat. Setting the temperature so that clients are comfortable cannot be underestimated.
There should also be good air circulation to eliminate stuffiness. Proper temperature control and air circulation will also help minimize humidity which can cause mold and mildew problems, particularly under sinks.
Remove Airborne Chemicals with a HEPA Purifier-Frequently our noses can smell a beauty shop long before we see it. The chemicals used in beauty shops are potent, and many evaporate into the air easily creating a smell that is both unpleasant, but more importantly, unhealthy.
These volatile organic chemicals have been shown to be unhealthy and dangerous when exposure is frequent or prolonged. In a beauty salon, unless you do something, your exposure is both.
Using a high efficiency particle arresting or HEPA air purifier with an inner filter specifically designed to eliminate airborne chemicals is an essential step in improving beauty salon air quality. A fan without a filter will simply move the chemicals around, and opening windows and doors adds pollutants rather than removes them.
Beauticians are exposed to these chemicals daily for many hours, and risk both acute and long term health complications because of the frequent and prolonged exposure.
So even though improving beauty salon air quality will improve your customers’ experience and help grow your business, one of the most important reasons to improve beauty salon air quality is to safeguard your health and the health of the other beauticians working beside you in the salon.
