When clients visit pedicure spas and salons, they want their hands and feet to look more beautiful, but most of all they want to improve their health and wellness.
The intricate process of soaking the feet in warm water, washing and massaging the hands and feet are therapeutic in many ways, and the process helps the patient reduce stress and increase blood circulation in the body.
Although the pedicure salon business is often categorized as a beauty business, it still plays a huge role in the well-being of its clientele. But more and more people are becoming aware of the health risks of getting a pedicure treatment.
For this reason, business owners must ensure that their pedicure spas and salons adhere to recommended safety, sanitation and infection control measures. This will calm their fears of skeptical customers.
Many nail salons have lost their clients to uncleanliness and infections.
Given that word of mouth spreads quickly, business owners must take care to protect their clients from contracting bacterial, fungal or even viral infections from your pedicure salons.
Below are the top 4 health and safety tips for pedicure spas and salons, as prescribed by health experts:
1. Inquire About Health Concerns
It is important for every pedicure spa to provide forms for new clients. This form should be geared towards discovering the client’s health concerns so that any pedicure contradictions can be avoided.
For instance, diabetics require customized pedicure treatments that work for them. If you have poor blood circulation on your feet, your pedicurist may recommend a suitable treatment that will guarantee optimum health and wellness.
2. Ensure That Every Part of The Pedicure Spa and Salon is Thoroughly Cleaned
If you run and manage a pedicure spa and salon, you cannot afford to compromise on cleanliness. Hire diligent cleaners and ensure that they leave no stone unturned.
Before your clients start trooping in, inspect every nook and cranny of the salon. Get rid of spider webs and moths. Use an effective air purifier to get rid of allergens. Make sure the bathroom and toilets are always clean.
Always arrange your instruments, supplies and equipment. Arrange all your instruments on a clean white towel to protect the instruments from infections and contaminations.
Wipe your mirrors, tables, pedicure chairs and other furniture clean.
Health conscious clients will take note of all these.
