Our Top Tips For Disinfecting Your Salon with Force of Nature
#1 Know The Difference Between Disinfecting and CleaningWe created a blog post to go into the distinction in detail here, but this is an important one. Cleaning is the reduction of germs on a surface by removing debris and dirt. Disinfecting is a regulated term that’s governed by the EPA. In order to be registered as a disinfectant the product has to show that it kills 99.9% of a specified set of germs on a surface within a specific “dwell time.” To disinfect effectively, the disinfectant needs to be able to come into contact with as much of the surface as possible, so it’s important to clean the surface first.
#2 Disinfect Your Waiting RoomGone are the days where clients could share magazines and sample products in the waiting area! Force of Nature is safe to use on virtually every surface, including sealed marble and other stones that etch easily, so you can disinfect your waiting room surfaces without worrying. It’s also an effective spot treatment and stain remover for upholstery in case any makeup gets left on your waiting room furniture – always spot test first to make sure the fabric is truly colorfast.
#3 Disinfect High Touch AreasFrom bathroom door handles to the pens at your checkout counter, high touch areas are places that are commonly handled by clients and staff. Other places to disinfect regularly:
- Door handles
- Drawer knobs and cabinet pulls
- Faucet handles
- Toilet tank lever
- Break room equipment like microwaves and fridge handles
- Coffee machine buttons and surfaces
