Hair salons welcome different kinds of people and offer various services from nails to hair colouring. It gets messy by the end of the day, ranging from hair on the floor to the chemicals on the table from the solutions made to make hair treatments. It can also leave nasty water splatters on the mirror and it stains by the end of the day. These can leave nasty traces that will make your clients turn and look for another salon with a cleaner environment.
During the busy times, it’s hard to keep track of the dirt, hair, and water droppings when there’s always a rush of customers coming in. Sometimes, the spill you neglected to clean up earlier dries up and is harder to clean. Aside from the overall aesthetics, there’s diseases that can be transferred from customer to another if it’s not cleaned properly.
Dealing with salon floors:
Floor is the biggest area you can see in the salon, and it’s only proper to make sure it’s clean and shiny. It should also be disinfected at most once a week to ensure there won’t be any lingering disease-carrying germs and dried stains from heavy foot traffic. It also pays to polish the floors at least twice a week to maintain that shiny look and seem brand new.
Vacuuming and dry mopping should be done daily as dust continuously to accumulate even when it’s not a busy day. Depending on what kind of floor you have, you have to treat it with proper cleaning agents to remove the scum and grout dirt effectively without scratching the surface of the floor. You can call up professional cleaning companies to ensure that your building is handled properly and cleaned effectively.
