Are You Cleaning Your Salon Correctly? 3 Mistakes to Avoid

Posted on: 25 August 2020

A salon is a busy place with a lot of moving parts. Without a doubt, within this environment, cleaning is important. However, it is not enough to simply clean ā€” you must clean your salon the correct way. If you are making these common mistakes, there is a chance that you are not going about the process in the most effective way. 

1. The Salon Is Cleaned Once a Day

If any attempt to clean the salon is only performed once a day, at the end of the day, you are not going about the process correctly. Unless you have a single client that does not arrive for services until the end of the day, the reality is that the salon needs attention throughout the day. Your staff should perform a quick tidy up after each client has left.

2. Fixtures Are Overlooked

The salon and workstations often get the most attention in a salon, but it is equally important that you also focus on the fixtures in the salon. The shampoo and styling chairs, hairdryer stations, door handles, and other high-traffic areas in the salon come in contact with multiple people throughout the day. It is important to make sure these surfaces are routinely cleaned.

3. Deep Cleaning Does Not Happen

Even in a salon where there is a constant commitment to cleaning throughout the day, if a deep cleaning never happens, it is a problem. The average salon with multiple stylists can easily have a hundred people moving through the salon in a single day and thousands over a month. If a deep cleaning does not happen, there is bound to be all sorts of grime and bacteria freely circulating around the salon, which does not look good, but it is also a health hazard. 

Professional Services

To keep your salon clean, it is a good idea to partner with a commercial cleaning company. Although your staff can sweep up and tidy after a client receives services, a professional company can come in at the end of the day to perform a more thorough cleaning and to sanitize the salon so that it is deep cleaned regularly. This partnership will make your salon look better and become a safer environment for everyone. 

Keeping the salon clean is important to both your staff and your customers. Do your part to keep the salon as clean as possible and partner with a commercial cleaning company.
