PEDI.GIENE18 November 2020 2020-11-23 13:45
Australia’s first product specifically designed for cleaning and sanitising Pedicure foot spas.
It is recommended to clean and disinfect all Pedicure equipment, including whirlpool units, air jetted basins, pipeless and all non-whirlpool basins, sinks, bowls and tubs. In all cases we recommend PEDI.GIENE.
Outbreaks of skin infections on the legs and feet of patrons following spa pedicures have caused concern about spa safety. HY.GIENE Australia provides information for customers of salon pedicure foot spas which can help reduce the potential for infections associated with pedicure foot spa use.
Micro-organisms in foot spas can enter through the skin. It is for this reason salon workers understand that pedicure foot spas and basins be cleaned after every client.
Cause of Infections.
Some incidents of foot spa infections have been caused by Mycobacterium fortuitum, This organism can occur naturally in water and soil. Other organisms have also been found in footbath systems. The screens and tubes of foot spas are particularly good places for the bacteria to collect and grow, often forming dense layers of cells and proteins called biofilms, which can be very hard to remove.
