Benefits of Air Purifiers for Salons

By | February 11, 2011

Air in a beauty salon is polluted with the chemicals released from hairspray, permanents, conditioners, hair color, smoke from straightening combs and curling irons. In a salon the level of pollution depends on the number of beauticians working with the different chemicals and space available.

The following are the benefits of using air purifier in the salon:

Removes Airborne Chemicals:
Many of the products used for nail and hair care are found to have volatile organic chemicals that evaporate easily into the air and create an odor that is unpleasant and unhealthy. This may cause dry throat, watery and burning eyes, headache, dizziness, both to the beauticians and the customers. The salon air purifier will clear the air by sending 250 cubic feet of fresh air into shop.

Offers 24 Hour Coverage:
As it is a split capacitor motor, it can run safely, effectively, economically, and continuously. Perms, pedicures and manicures are removed all through the night. So when the shop is opened the morning is greeted with fresh, clean air.

Low Maintenance Costs:
Generally people working in a salon are busy in providing the services to the clients so they don’t have time to look at the purifiers. The purifiers used in the beauty salon are of low maintenance cost type and doesn’t require much time to repair.

Removes Particles:
HEPA or high efficiency particle arresting filter removes particles of size up to 0.3 microns in size. This includes hair and tiny particles that are sent airborne with sanding and grinding of nails, and normal indoor airborne pollutants that circulate through the air such as dust, mold and mildew spores, bacteria and viruses.

A light weight purifier can be easily moved from one space in salon to another, or can be moved to a different location entirely.

By using a carbon-based filter that has potassium iodide added, there is a benefit of removing the chemical fumes and odors that frequently cause air quality in the beauty shop to suffer.

So these are all the advantages a beauty salon owner can get by using air purifier in his beauty salon.
