Nail Salons and Spas  Disinfect and VOC Removal

VOCs or Volatile Organic Compounds are chemicals that can be dangerous to your health.  There are many chemicals used in a Nail Salon that are classified as VOCs which can pose a risk to Staff and Clients.  Exposure to VOCs has been linked to a variety of symptoms like eye, nose and throat irritation, shortness of breath, headaches, fatigue, nausea, dizziness and skin problems.  Longer term exposure can cause irritation of the lungs, as well as damage to the liver, kidney, or central nervous system.  Also, because a Nail Salon depends on a one-on-one interaction with the client, it is important to have a broad-based disinfection process to reduce the risk of transmitting illnesses and disease.

There are many VOCs in a Nail Salon which pose a risk to Staff and Clients that can be eliminated with SanusAer ozone.

Ozone is scientifically proven to destroy VOCs, by chemically oxidizing them thus reducing the risk to staff and clients.  Additionally, Ozone will eliminate the viruses and bacteria that also pose a threat.  SanusAer's High Output Ozone Generators, with the innovative Vertical Flow System, deliver more pure ozone gas (more effectively) into the salon, destroying the VOCs and microbes that put the Staff and Clients at risk.


Problem: Nail Salons have always struggled with the odors generated by the VOCs in their products.  Whether it is nail polish, solvents, or the adhesives used, there are many dangerous VOCs present in the salon environment!  Recent studies have named four common VOCs found in nail salons: Methacrylate Compounds, Dibutyl Phthalate, Formaldehyde, and Toluene.  Additionally, the services provided at a salon are delivered in intimate, face-to-face transactions, at small stations, with a large number of clients serviced throughout the day.  The potential for the surfaces in the Salon being contaminated increases with the number of customers. 

Solution: Ozone is the most effective way to destroy VOCs and microbes in the indoor environment because it is a reactive gas that reaches everywhere air currents travel.  Treating a Nail Salon at night will ensure that the environment will be sanitized and deodorized every day, reducing the risk to the clients and staff.  Ozone is one of nature's most powerful oxidizing agents, attacking the VOCs by oxidation, while leaving no chemical residue behind, because ozone converts back into clean breathable oxygen after each treatment.  SanusAer® ozone shock treatments are 100% safe; as ozone is currently being used to treat the food we eat and the water we drink. 

Note: A SanusAer® high output ozone generator can only be used in a Salon that is vacant. Daily treatments (in the evening with the salon is empty), will thoroughly oxidize the VOCs and viruses that pose a risk to the clients and staff alike.  If there is a separate HVAC unit in the salon, the fan can be turned to the 'ON' position during treatments to help distribute the gas making it more effective and cleaning the ductwork at the same time.

Ozone leaves a clean, sanitized smell.  Your clients and staff will greatly appreciate the transformed environment!


Always read the SanusAer® manual before operating the unit and reference the specific treatment recommendations provided.  This unit can be dangerous if not used properly.
