A great cosmetology school should be on the cutting edge of all things. One of the most important areas for a school to model is the most effective way to deal with the fumes that off gas from many of the products that they will be asked to use in salons.
And setting the example by using an air purifier to eliminate fumes will speak volumes to them about how important you thing clean air is. Here are 5 reasons every cosmetology school needs an air purifier.
Set The Bar High —- Your students will surely learn from the things they hear. But they will remember more about the things you do. Telling them about the chemicals and their best uses is great. And telling them about the fumes they produce is great too.
But being a good role model by actively removing the fumes with an air purifier says the most about how important you as an instructor and the school as a whole really think this issue is.
Having students experience the difference filtration can make is self-perpetuating. A greater percentage of students who are lucky enough to have their air filtered in school are likely to do the same when they are on their own. And even if they work in someone else's space, they will know better than put themselves in harm's way by breathing air that is not filtered.
Safeguard Health of Students And Staff — Generally the age of the student in class is fairly young. If you are teaching such a class your experience in the field makes you all aware of how breathing air heavy with fumes can adversely affect health.
By filtering the air when procedures are being done, you are letting the cleaner take the fumes out of the air rather than the lungs and liver of your students.
Be A Good Neighbor — Many times classes are held inside a regular school or at a technical school where other trades are taught. Left unfiltered the chemical odor can circulate through the building leaving the auto mechanic, industrial arts, and home economics teachers complaining about the smell.
And even if your school is in a mall or a professional office building, if you share heating and air conditioning; it can put other businesses in a tough spot to have to try to get rid of odors that they are not creating. Consider the effects these odors would have on an errant restaurant or business that offers massages.
Filtering the air 24 hours a day with an air cleaner that is specifically designed to remove volatile organic chemicals that evaporate so easily at room temperature is a proactive and effective way to handle the problem. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
