Dust. It’s everywhere. Nowhere is this more evident than in your nail salon. The best way to control dust in a salon is with a professional source capture ventilation system designed to collect and remove dust particles from the air or to ventilate them to the outdoors. With these systems in place, dust is collected at the source and removed from the salon air before it can spread throughout the building, pollute the air, and end up in the last place you want it, your lungs.
In addition to source capture ventilation technology in your salon, wearing a high quality, properly fitted dust mask greatly reduces exposure to nail dust inhalation. Choosing a mask specifically designed for dusts, mists and molds is very important. These types of masks are vastly superior to the flimsy and ineffective surgical type masks that some nail techs use today. Dust masks rated “N-95” are highly effective and a great choice for dusts.
