"Washing of Hands"
each service, I will wash my hands with soap and water, I ask that you do the same either with soap and water or liquid sanitizer.
Disinfecting Metal Implements:
All metal implements are washed with warm soapy water, rinsed,
and placed in a hospital grade /EPA approved disinfecting solution for 10 minutes.
Then rinsed, dried, and placed in
a clean sealed container.
Disinfectant solution is changed daily to allow the product to work at it full potential.
These are disposed of after being used on each client.
These are cleaned with warm soapy water after each use, dried and then wiped out with a disinfecting
wipe and stored in a clean dry place.
The State of Florida now requires that
each whirlpool unit must be cleaned and properly disinfected after each client to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria.
This means the tub is drained and washed with a chelating soap after each client and then a hospital grade/EPA approved
disinfectant is run in the tub for 10mins. drained and rinsed.
At the end of the day:
tub of any residue, rinse out the tub with clean clear water, then remove the drain screen and clean with a bleach solution
to also remove any debris, replace screen and fill the tub with clean water and add a disinfecting hospital grade/EPA
approved product, run the unit for 10 mins., drain and wipe dry.
Solution is left in the unit over the weekends.
Tips for a safe pedicure:
Please do no shave your legs the day of your scheduled pedicure, in doing
so you may open your skin to unseen abrasions, which can result in bacteria entering through these openings.
to always push back your cuticles and to only cut those pieces that lift up.
With regular manicures and pedicures you
will find that the cuticles regress back.
Removing or cutting a cuticle that is live will open you up to bacterial infections.
We will "never" use a blade to remove callus.
The State of Florida says no cutting of the skin, this should
be left to doctors or other trained personnel.
