The CLEAN in CleanSpa
We have two different systems in place to ensure proper sterilization of your instruments. a.) Compressed steam sterilization is used on all instruments. We use black lights that are hung on the drying table to detect any sign of protein or fungus. b.) A Client Guard Library is available. These are client owned nail tool sets, which are kept on site to be used exclusively on one individual client.
Whirlpools don’t cause fungal and bacterial infections, people do. Improper cleaning of wet areas and floors and improper washing of towels are some of the REAL reasons people get infected. Our tubs are cleaned the proper way after every client, and our towels are professionally cleaned. At the end of each day the facility is scanned by a Wood’s mission Lamp (magnified black light). We go on a search and destroy to ensure that any sign of fungus has been removed.
Dedicated Medical Treatment Areas
Clients with fungal nail infections or other medical conditions can be treated in a fully functional and aesthetic treatment area that is set apart from the cosmetic clientele. This enables our clients to never have to worry again about inadvertent exposure to affected surfaces.
Custom Built Nail Table Ventilation Systems
The powerful ventilation system built into our manicure tables and facility enables CleanSpa to remove nail dust and odor when it is generated.
Procedure and Protocol
Tools are always placed on clean towels. Implements that are unable to be sterilized are all single use and disposable, if they are not contained within a Client Guard. The CleanSpa has been designed without any absorbent wooden surfaces with CLEAN in mind.
