Air Purifiers for Hair Salons
Beauty treatments are a wonderful way to pamper ourselves. But danger may be lurking in the products being used in hair and nail salons. Customers and in particular, salon employees are subject to regular exposure to these toxic chemicals. Research has shown that exposure to hair and nail salon fumes, sprays, dyes, and chemicals can result in chronic respiratory illnesses, asthma attacks, eye irritation, cracked skin, miscarriages, birth defects in pregnant women and even cancer.
According to the U.S. Government’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), nail polishes, nail glues, and other nail and hair salon products may contain a variety of chemicals and list includes but not limited to:
Why Formaldehyde is considered the most dangerous of all
Of all the chemicals and fumes, OSHA has pinpointed, in particular, the dangers of formaldehyde. It is known to cause the following complications:
Levels of formaldehyde above 0.1 ppm in the air can irritate your nose, throat, and lungs. These symptoms will get worse as formaldehyde levels go up. Airpura F600 DLX has 26 lbs of custom blended activated carbon with powerful oxidizers that removes up to 99% of formaldehyde. Excellent for thousands of other chemicals.
Best Air purifier to remove formaldehyde and other VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds):
The best air purifiers for hair and nail salons are those which can remove both hazardous chemicals as well as airborne particles in the air.
Formaldehyde removal of 99% along with VOCs (Benzene, toluene, ammonias etc.) released from common household products, beauty products, renovation and construction materials, pressed wood products and pesticides. They also have a HEPA filter which removes airborne particles.
A powerful 26-lb carbon filter adsorbs a wide range of toxic chemicals and pollutants from your indoor air. The HEPA Barrier captures 95% of airborne particles, as small as 1 micron. Over 4000 chemicals can be removed.
An 18-lb enhanced carbon filter adsorbs most common VOC's and harmful, airborne chemicals and pollutants. The powerful HEPA filter captures 99.97% of airborne particles, as small as 0.3 microns.
The HEPA filter will also reduce any airborne virus in the air including SARS CoV-2.
Air purifiers for beauty salons and beauty schools can contribute toa safer and healthier environment for both customers and staff.
Determining the number of purifiers is directly proportionate with the daily number of clients who come into the Hair/Nail salon as well as the number of nail and hair stations in the salon.
