An interesting article was posted in the Chattanoogan web site about the truth about ‘Pedicure‘. The only common I have to make in regards to the paragraph of autoclaving implements, is that the implements needs to be put into an Ultrasonic Cleaners, then put into a bag (Bags), and then put into the autoclave. Also, monitoring the autoclave is important. We recommend. How elese would you know if the autoclave is working or not?
Call me if you have any further questions.
p.s. this is the paragraph in the article I was referring to:
Is it clean?
Sanitation is, first and foremost, the most important thing to look for in your salon. Do you see tools being used that have obviously been used on someone else? Do you see the pedicure chairs being washed, rinsed and cleaned with a product that will kill viral, bacterial and fungal pathogens between each client? Do you see thick filings and clippings from other clients lying on tables, floors or pedicure chairs? Please do not have services here. If your salon is touting “sterile” implements which have been autoclaved, that does not necessarily mean the salon is clean. Autoclaving instruments really does nothing in a non-sterile field. Some salons throw instruments right into the autoclave without even cleaning them first with soap and water, and the autoclave is improperly maintained. If you see nail dust covering floors and/or work surfaces, you are being exposed to anything the prior clients might be carrying. Find yourself a clean and well maintained salon, with or without an autoclave, as long as the instruments used are being correctly sanitized or they are being disposed of after each client. And don’t be afraid to ask. A true professional is proud of their sanitation methods and is happy to show you the lengths to which they go to protect you.
