With so many products on the market, here’s what you should be looking for in a safe and effective disinfectant.
As your spa or salon is likely to be fully booked, no one has the time (or patience) to wait for a disinfectant to do its job. Therefore, finding a disinfectant that is safe and effective in less than 1 minute is ideal.Remember that disinfecting tools require more time (8 to 10 minutes) to ensure your tools are safely disinfected for your next client.
While you may be focused on protecting your clients against a virus that causes Covid-19, it’s important to remember that there’s a wide range of viruses and other pathogens that you’ll want to protect them from. Therefore, finding a disinfectant with broad–spectrum efficacy is key. In other words, you want to make sure your product can safely disinfect and protect against many different viruses and bacteria.
Nothing is worse than using a harsh disinfectant with an unpleasant odor! Therefore, finding a safe product, yet is tough on germs and pathogens, is important. For example, Rejuvenate products are powered by Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide®, which is safe to use and is environmentally sustainable.
Providing your team with the proper education and tools to disinfect safely can make all the difference. In addition, finding a product that is simple and straightforward to use will make disinfecting easier and less of a hassle, especially when disinfecting after each client.
For larger surface areas, a disinfectant spray can be an easy and convenient way to disinfect spa or salon stations, chairs, tables, etc. For smaller surface areas, such as door handles, light switches, equipment, countertops, or arm-rests, disinfectant wipes can be a handier solution.
For non-porous surfaces, the product should be applied and remain wet for 1 minute. Then, you can wipe dry or air-dry (no rinsing is needed). For heavily soiled areas, you should clean the surface beforedisinfecting.
The product should be applied in a light and even coat for soft surfaces until the fabric is damp and should remain damp for 1 minute.
