Nail technicians will know just how important it is to ensure that the dust and fumes in a salon environment are kept to a minimum. But without the right equipment, it can be pretty difficult. 

Today, we’ll be talking about how you can protect yourself and your clients from potentially harmful fumes and specks of dust using Zephyros – an industry leader for professional filtration equipment. 

Without further ado, let’s get into it. Read on to find out how to safely remove nail dust and fumes from your salon with Zephyros…

Why it’s important to remove nail dust and fumes from your salon

We don’t need to tell you that filtration technology is a must-have for any nail technician. It’s always astonishing how many dust particles can go unnoticed, especially where nail treatments are concerned. 

We’re sure all nail techs have had a moment where they thought their workstations were spotless – only to do a quick wipe over and find an accumulation of fine dust particles that were undetectable to the naked eye. It’s not your fault – it happens to the best of us! 

Although easily missed, repeat exposure to these toxins can be quite bad for your health. This is because the dust from these types of treatments tends to be so fine, it can easily enter the body without you even noticing.

Aside from the health risk to the professional, the salon also must ensure a safe environment for their clients. Not to mention that the fumes can leave a pretty unpleasant smell if not addressed! 

So, what can you do? The answer is professional filtration technology, specially designed for nail treatments. The professional brand we highly recommend is Zephyros. 

Zephyros overview 

A slightly unrelated but interesting fact is the name Zephyros might sound familiar, and here’s why. It’s the name of the Greek God of the west wind, which fits perfectly with their products and what they can offer! 

Used by professionals on a global scale, Zephyros is a brand that you can count on for unbeatable quality. 

The filtration technology that their products offer will snap up even the smallest of dust particles, ensuring that no pesky toxic particles circulate within the airflow of the salon and workstation areas.

So if you’re looking for trustworthy products that’ll keep your station super clean, super tidy, and super organised – you’ve just found your new go-to brand.  

Now that you’re officially acquainted with Zephyros, let’s dive into what their products can offer in more detail.
