Hygiene Policy

Hygiene  

Hygiene is to the upmost importance to PrettyEdgy Nails. I follow a strict hygiene procedure for all tools, equipment, furnishings and hard surfaces.

Hand Hygiene

- Your nail/brow artists hands will be washed before your arrival and a fresh pair of gloves will be worn throughout your treatment. After removal of their gloves they will wash their hands again, apply another fresh pair of gloves and clean/disinfect the treatment area and all touch points. These gloves will then be disposed of and hands washed again. This process is repeated for each client.

 

- Willow hand and foot sanitiser spray is available on request to all clients. Tested to EN Standards BS EN1276, BS EN14476 & EN1650 against Bacteria, Fungi & Viruses.

- Hands are also sprayed at least twice throughout all nail treatments with Willow hand and foot sanitiser spray. Tested to EN Standards BS EN1276, BS EN14476 & EN1650 against Bacteria, Fungi & Viruses

Tools

- This consists of all metal tools being washed in warm soapy water in an ultrasonic machine and soaked for a minimum of 10 minutes in Medistel between each client and 30 minutes at the end of every day. Medistel is a medical grade instrument disinfectant and steriliser. Medistel is manufactured in the United Kingdom to the highest standards conforming to BS EN ISO9001:2000 and BS EN ISO13485:2003. It also conforms to Medical Directive 93/42/EEC requirements and carries the CE Mark. Effecacy: Bactericidial (5 minutes), Fungicidal (10 minutes), Veridical (10 minutes), Tuberculocidal (30 minutes) and Sporicidal (30 minutes)

 

Files/Cleaning Brush

Every client has their own pouch which consists of their personal files and nail cleaning brush. These are washed in warm soapy water and disinfected with a Clinell disinfectant spray at the end of your appointment. Once dry they are stored in your own personal named pouch ready for your next appointment.

Masks
Your nail/brow artist will be wearing a mask for all treatments

 

I also run an air purifier continuously that is approved by Allergy UK and affective against airborne odours, chemicals, bacteria and viruses.

Floor

At​ the end of every working day the floor is hoovered and steam cleaned.​

Communal Areas
Please note: The communal area from the first brown door all the way to our front door is cleaned on a monthly basis by professional cleaners. Unfortunately, due to the constant footfall (clients, neighbours, delivery couriers etc) we can't control, monitor or clean this area ready for each client. 

Please Note:

PrettyEdgy Nails takes the upmost care in minimising cross contamination. However, viral diseases such as the common cold and flu are inevitable especially in the winter months. If you have cold or flu symptoms or have been around anyone showing flu symptoms in the last 7 days please reschedule your appointment. Three groups of people are at risk of catching your illness if you arrive at PrettyEdgy Nails unwell: Following clients, my family and myself. There is also only one of me and if I get sick, no one will be able to get their nails done. If I or anyone in my household has cold or flu symptoms ALL appointments will be rescheduled.
