I recently purchased a used, damaged Prima bathing system online. I knew it needed a pump (easy, fast fix) but I had Zero idea it had never been cleaned and had been stored sealed and wet. That makes for a nasty nasty mess in case you didn't know. Black mold, mildew, slime...it was terribly difficult to clean. Just think about the shampoo contamination THAT can cause!!
Which is why we break down both wash tanks every Saturday. We wash them out, rinse hoses and drain them, and then wipe them dry, leaving them open to completely dry out over the weekend. This makes for a more prolonged setup when we return to work on Tuesday (or Mondays on occasion)but oh so worth it!
We also clean all dryer filters, the air conditioner filters, snapon combs and all blades.
The key to a healthy, clean salon is a good cleaning regimine right down to the walls. We do those weekly as well. The tub gets scrubbed daily, trashcans weekly.
It's the little things like that which make us stand apart from everyone and keeps the shop clean and fresh.
Set up a good cleaning regimen and assign duties to individuals making sure they're done using checklists if needed! When you only have a little bit of clean up to do the whole days a lot easier than when you have it all to do at one time.
