How Can you Reduce Air Pollution in Your Salon?
Air Pollution is a very complex topic and there are many examples of air pollution. On the positive side, this also means that there are many ways in which you can counteract the effects and improve our environment; one person, one action and one day at a time – starting today.
Especially in salons, there are a many potential dangers to the air quality that you might not be aware of yet.
For example, formaldehyde and forms of mould on the walls and ceiling, laminated flooring, bonded carpets and the products used to clean these, emissions from ammonia use and other aggressive chemical products that leave traces in the air. Especially from perming, straightening, colouring and fixation products.
Also, you might not be aware of organic pollutants, such as CO2, common bacteria and microbes as well as the circulation of outdoor air, which could already be polluted.
Particularly look to limit your usage of acetone, benzene, toluene, fiberglass and phthalates.
Did you know that 30% of cases of occupational asthma occur in the hairdressing sector? Many hairdressers become sensitised to chemical products which ultimately impacts their ability to perform.
For all the negative influences on your salon’s air quality that you may not see or be able to control, we would recommend installing an air purifier. This has shown to reduce particles, gases and odours and improve the overall ventilation.
For all the influences that you can manage, we want to lend a helping hand.
