Posted on: September 7, 2020
The Covid-19 pandemic has many people concerned about being at a day spa. Not only are people worried about going to the spa, but many people are concerned about going to work every day. Fortunately, if you take the proper precautions, you can keep yourself and clients safe. You can take the following steps in order to keep your spa school and day spa safe.
You will need to clean all of the surfaces with soap and water. It is best to use hot water. Cleaning the areas will not only remove the germs, but it will also remove the dirt and debris. You will need to dry items with a towel after you have cleaned them. You can also hang them and let them air dry.
Disinfection is an important part of the sanitation process. All spa students will need to learn how to properly disinfect surfaces and spa equipment. The purpose of disinfection is to kill the germs. It is important to clean the area before you disinfect it because the debris and dirt will make the disinfect less effective.
You can use chemical wipes, sprays, and soaks to disinfect the area. You can also use an autoclave and UV sanitizer. If you have a porous item, then you should throw it away. You probably won't be able to sanitize it thoroughly.
Hand washing is one of the best things that you can do to prevent germs from spreading. That is why it is important for you to wash your hands before and after performing a spa treatment. You should also encourage your clients to wash their hands before they get a spa treatment.
Spa students must be diligent in following all guideline procedures to set a good example for the spa school and keeping their clients safe.
