Best Salon Air Purifier----5 Features They Need To Do The Job
Beauty and nail salons continue to expand the scope of the services they offer. However, beauty sometimes comes at a high price because of the volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) that many of these cutting edge products emit.
The good news is that these products don't have to make salon air hazardous if these airborne chemicals are removed with a purifier that has filters that can eliminate them. Here are the best 5 features a salon cleaner needs to get the job done.
Multiple Filtration Speeds---Some days the air has the potential to smell worse than others because of the number and types of services being offered. If you know that a particularly smelly procedure is going to happen, being able to increase the speed at which the pollutants are removed is invaluable.
Not only does it keep clients comfortable, but it helps protect the health of technicians and stylists who are in the shop continually day after day. Weekends, evenings and days leading up to holidays can be great for business but can make the hazardous. Being able to clear the air fast is a good thing.
Easily Portable---Since cleaners clean the air that is closest to them first, being able to roll the unit closer to the procedure will help the cleaner help take the chemicals and particulates out faster. And regardless of whether you own your space or rent it, a purifier that can travel with you can from one station to another or across the country.
Enhanced Carbon Filter---Carbon has long been recognized as the best kind of filter to remove gaseous pollutants such as airborne chemicals. But even as effective as carbon is, it needs an additive to enhance its effectiveness at removing volatile organic chemicals. Potassium Iodide has been found to be the most effective at improving carbon's ability to be effective.
Particle Filters---Nail and hair particles are frequent by-products of salons. Add the other more normal indoor pollutants such as dust, mold and mildew spores, pollen, pet dander (from the clothes of people who own them), viruses, and bacteria.
Continuous Operation---One of the best ways to reduce the pollutants in the air is to remove them as fast as they go in. And pollutants don't just evaporate when you're there, they can also continue to evaporate when the shop is closed.
Having a unit with a split capacitor motor allows the cleaner to continue to filter the air safely and effectively whether you are there or not. A purifier with this type of motor can continue to clean the air during the night and help your shop smell fresh and clean whenever you and your clients open the door.
