Clinic furniture is an investment, so salon owners should make it their responsibility to take care of it. Due to the range of equipment used in salons, their routine upkeep may be challenging. This blog will give some basic guidelines to ease your mind and ensure your salon is clean and safe. 

Clinic furniture

So salon owners, get ready to gain some valuable insights.

Regular Examinations: Our prime advice is to regularly check for loose screws, bolts and hoses. It is important in frequently used areas like washing stations and salon chairs. It is surprising how much difference a minor issue like a loose part can make in the smooth working of machinery or salon furniture. 

Wipe down after each service: Hair care treatments are much messier than other procedures performed in a beauty salon. Clinic Furniture can be severy harmed by hair colour, compromising its quality and aesthetic appeal. Make sure to rapidly clean the upholstery with an erasing sponge after each service. 

Put the chair down: Since many customers use salon chairs throughout the day, the hydraulics weaken over time. Make it a routine habit to lower the seats after every service so that the customers do not have to sit in an uncomfortable position. This will not only give your customers a great experience but will also save your salon chairs. 

Maintenance of Shampoo Areas: After every hair wash and hair treatment, traps of hair accumulate in the shampoo areas. If you want to keep your pipes from clogged up and leaking, you must clean the shampoo trap after every hair wash. 

Clean your combs and scissors: Cleaning your combs and scissors after every haircut service is extremely important. Ensure you sanitise them properly so the bacteria does not transmit from one customer to another. 

Tips to clean the most ignored salon furniture

Tips to clean the most ignored salon furniture

  1. Salon Couch
    • Vacuum regularly:
      • Keep your salon furniture clean by vacuuming it regularly with a handheld or upholstery attachment.
      • Remove dust, dirt, and debris from crevices, seams, and corners.
    • Getting rid of spots:
      • Don't let spills and stains set in.
      • To soak up excess liquid, dab the spill gently with a clean, absorbent cloth.
      • Test a mild, upholstery-safe cleaner on a small, hidden spot first.
    • Cleaning technique:
      • Apply the cleaning solution to the affected area with a soft cloth or sponge.
      • Do not rub the stain, as that could spread it. Gently blot or dab the stain instead.
    • Moisture should be kept at a minimum:
      • If you're cleaning, don't overwet the fabric with water since excess moisture can damage the upholstery.
    • Making sure it's dry:
      • Before using the couch again, let the cleaned spot air dry completely.
      • Using a fan or opening windows will speed up drying.
    • Fluffing and brushing:
      • When the fabric is dry, use a soft brush to fluff it up.
      • Keep your upholstery looking good by brushing it.
    • Upholstery shampooing:
      • Keep your couch clean by getting professional upholstery cleaning now and then.
      • A professional cleaner can eliminate embedded dirt and grime that a regular vacuum can't get.
    • How to prevent fading:
      • Make sure the couch isn't in direct sunlight to prevent fading.
      • You can minimise sun exposure if the couch's near a window with curtains or blinds.
    • Use slipcovers:
      • Slipcovers are removable and washable so that you can protect your couch.
      • It's easy to take the slipcovers off and clean them separately.

2) Salon Trolley

  • Empty the Trolley: The first thing you need to do is to empty the salon trolley by taking all the items out. Please empty any drawers, and remove any removable compartments or trays from the trolley. 
  • Wipe down the surface: Make sure to wipe down all the surfaces, including handles, wheels and corners of the trolley. 
  • Disinfect with a Mild Cleaner: After dusting your trolley, you should use a mild cleaner or disinfectant suitable for the material of your trolley to disinfect it. 
  • Clean the Drawers and Compartments: If your salon trolley has drawers or compartments, remove them and clean each individually. 
  • Check Stains: Carefully inspect the trolley for stubborn stains. Use appropriate and efficient stain removers to deal with these stubborn spots. 
  • Polish and Protect: Use a suitable polish to maintain its shine for trolleys with a glossy finish. Do not use abrasive polish, as it can scratch the surface. 
  • Liners and pads: Replace them regularly if the shelves or drawers of your salon trolley have liners or padding.
  • Organise and reassemble: Once everything is clean and dry, reassemble the drawers and compartments and organise your tools. Organising your work well will save time and be more productive.
  • Regular maintenance: Maintain the trolley regularly by cleaning it at least once a month and checking it regularly to ensure it's in good shape.

  • Don't use harsh chemicals on stool surfaces; use gentle, non-abrasive cleaners.
  • Try cleaning products in an inconspicuous spot first to avoid discolouration.
  • Use a soft-bristle brush and gentle scrubbing motion to remove stubborn stains.
  • After cleaning, wipe the stool dry.
  •  Use a leather conditioner to maintain suppleness if the saddle stool has a leather seat.
