Pedicure is one of the pleasant relaxation spa rituals for the client. But a technician’s careless attitude and improper disinfection of tools can do more harm than good.
Infections that can be received in salons can easily be treated (for example, staphylococcus or streptococcus), and can cause serious harm to health (fungus).
To prevent clients from having too many reasons for concern, it is enough to follow all the rules of hygiene in the workplace. Clients have the right to ask the technician how he sterilizes the equipment and disinfects the work surface and ask to open the kraft package with sterile tools in their presence.
