Healthy Customers, Healthy Equipment

We all want to maintain a healthy balance in our lives. We balance work with play, and we balance meals with fitness.  An essential part of keeping a healthy balance for your business is keeping it sparkling clean. As we begin spring-cleaning this season, it is important to know that not all cleaners are alike. So, what are you supposed to be using and how will this help keep our customers and business healthy?

Lucasol

Lucasol is a non-destructive chemical that kills germs while protecting your equipment. Not only does it stop the spread of infectious diseases, it is the lowest cost per use in the industry. In just 60 seconds you will kill 99.99% of pathogens that could be living on your equipment. Common germs like Streptococcus, Influenza A2, Swine Influenza, Herpes, and the Human Coronavirus are just a few of the many pathogens that are killed using Lucasol. Compared to leading competitors, Lucasol kills 75% more pathogens in a smaller amount. Most importantly to the salons, this disinfectant is acrylic friendly! Not all equipment cleaner kills 99.99% of bacteria, fungus and virus in 60 seconds. If you’re not using Lucasol, you might be missing pathogens that are growing on your equipment.

Mixing the Solution

As with any chemical solution, we recommend wearing the proper safety materials for handling. Mixing ratio is 2 oz. per gallon of water. Read and follow all directions on concentrate liquid and always handle with care. Lucasol offers measuring pumps that dispense 1/8 oz. of concentrate per pump. Use 3 pumps of cleaner to yield 24 oz.

 

4-Step Cleaning Process

Following this 4-step process will allow the best possible results for your customer while minimizing the spread of contagious diseases. These guidelines are recommended by the manufacture, Lucasol.  For a visual view of this process click here.

Step 1 (Disinfect): After use, spray the tanning bed with Lucasol disinfectant. Let the spray sit for 60 seconds to kill 99.99% of bacteria, fungus and virus.

Step 2: Wipe the tanning bed surface to remove the cleaner and any tanning lotion residue. The bed has now been sanitized.

Step 3 (Deep Clean): Spray the tanning bed again and let Lucasol sit for 10 minutes to achieve 100% disinfection. This kills 100% of bacteria, fungus and virus.

Step 4: Wipe remaining cleaner from the surface of the bed. The bed is now completely sanitzed.

 

How to Clean Acrylics

For salons, what you’re using to clean your acrylics is important to know. Not all cleaners are safe for your acrylics and can cause damage. Don’t forget about your lamps and filters too. Deep cleaning these parts will help to maintain the overall bed health. There are a few things you want to keep in mind when cleaning the beds:

  1. Do not rub your acrylics with a dry cloth and remove jewelry like rings, watches and bracelets during cleanings. You risk damaging and scratching.
  2. Clean the outside panels of the beds. Did you know that if this is not disinfected, over time, the places that have been touched can become stained from the heat and light? Remove fingerprints and other marks carefully.
  3. Lamps and filters can be cleaned with a damp cloth without cleaning agents when necessary. We recommend deep cleaning the inside (under the acrylic) of the bed during each lamp change.

Cleaning Eyewear

If your clients do not use their own eyewear, proper disinfection is important for these items. Lucasol will guarantee you have killed the germs. We recommend soaking eyewear for a minimum of 10 minutes in between uses. Having multiple glasses that can be rotated will allow each pair to soak for plenty of time.

 

Keeping your Business Clean and Tidy

There are other areas in your salons and business that come into contact with skin. For best practices we recommend properly sanitizing all equipment, door handles, countertops, and anything that is frequently touched by your customers.

Balance your stress and keep your salon or gym clean with the proper disinfectants. Kill 99.99% of pathogens with acrylic friendly cleaner. Healthy clients and healthy equipment all year!
