The last few years have been tough for the pro beauty industry in Canada. Salons and spas have been shuttered then required to work at reduced capacity. Clients are frustrated, staff are hard to get and anxious about their work environment, and managers need to return the business to profit. Every day we continue to hear media stories about a pandemic resurgence. With an uncertain future and people finding “do-it-yourself” alternatives, there needs to be a change in approach to combating germs if salons and spas are to stay viable in the era of pandemics.
Up until now, performing a deep-clean and disinfection of your salon or spa was a painstaking task that involved manually wiping down all surfaces, furniture, devices and other high-touch areas. Fortunately, one Mississauga-based company, HyPACE Professional, has addressed this problem with a turn-key solution that combines electrostatic sprayers with hospital-grade disinfection. What used to take hours can now be performed in minutes by you or your staff to achieve full germ-kill coverage, with the requisite dwell time and disinfection efficacy. The savings in time and labour cost is the leading advantage salons and spas are realizing. Still, it’s the adherence to best infection prevention practices that is the principal benefit of fighting against this pandemic.
HyPACE Professional Integrated Performance Bundles consist of fast-acting disinfectants that are dispersed through electrostatic sprayers. They come with a convenient, easy to use handheld wand sprayers that provide a number of advantages over traditional methods:
• Faster, more even coverage versus disinfecting wipes or spray bottles
• Avoids staff contact with potentially contaminated surfaces or objects
• Disinfects surfaces 360° with electrostatic adhesion
• Uses less chemicals
• Avoids manual spray and wipe cross-contamination
• Multiple use applications: counters, treatment areas, reception, floors, showers, steam rooms , etc.
“Salons and spas across Canada can now give their members the confidence and assurance they need to feel safe without breaking the bank” says HyPACE Professional CEO Mark Heller. “We’ve supplemented a facility’s reliance on manual disinfection and made it part of a salon or spa’s infection prevention policy to protect staff and users alike” continues Heller.
HyPACE bundles are turnkey solutions out of the box. “We’ve combined the best sprayer technology with Canada’s leading hospital-grade disinfectant and other accessories that take the headache out of owners and managers having to figure this all out for themselves” adds Heller. The bundles also include protocols tailored to salons and spas and a pledge card that can be used to communicate your commitment to keeping clients safe. The new norm may never be a return to the old ways. Immunologists suggest the pandemic could become endemic—a recurring annual infection. Then there’s flu season and a host of other germs that can make their way into your workspace and service areas. A HyPACE bundle will provide for fast and efficient protection against all pathogens making for a safe and healthy environment for years to come
