Like most beauty clinics in Ireland, The Wicklow Street Clinic on Wicklow Street, D2 is returning to business soon. It’s an anxious time for beauty therapists and clients – a sterilised workplace is of the utmost importance.
The clinic has looked at their options and realised that an additional UV-C Light cleanse of each treatment room was the best practice to ensure client safety alongside the HSE recommended cleaning regime. Using new Irish UV cleaning company UVSAN.ie in tandem with a new cleaning verification system called VERI-SAN the clinic hopes to restore customer and staff confidence.
VERI-SAN replaces the traditional paper cleaning schedule with a digital sanitisation schedule that not only verifies the procedure of cleaning the room via digital signing, but also stores the data safely in the cloud for the customer and business owner’s peace of mind.
UVSAN use UV-C machines that are proven to kill viruses and bacteria. The clinic has decided on these machines as they are compact enough to move from room to room and have 360 degree light dispersal, ensuring that anything a therapist may have missed while cleaning is fully sanitised – providing an extra layer of confidence for the customer. UV-C Light is the most effective of the UV light range.
“We looked at lots of different ideas to help restore client confidence in the clinic, including handheld UV sterilisers, but they seemed impractical as you need to hold the light there for 15 to 20 minutes, the UVSAN system is a lot more workable for us as a clinic. We can rotate treatment rooms and leave it to work sterilising the room before the next client arrives,” says Rasa Levinaite, MD of The Wicklow Street Clinic.
“The VERI-SAN system is much more practical and hygienic for our staff than using paper, as it’s all documented and signed digitally on a phone or tablet. Plus it ensures that we can 100% prove to the client that the room was cleaned to the highest standards.”
“We’re looking to work the two new systems in tandem with each other and we’re hoping that salons can open on the 29th of June, and hoping it’s announced soon by the government. I had to temporarily furlough my staff for the lockdown and we are all ready and cautiously optimistic that we can get back to work fully.”
“We’re adopting full PPE gear for each treatment: a visor, mask and apron, along with stringent handwashing and sanitising. To ensure our customer’s confidence, we’re really excited to be using UVSAN’s pioneering system that should kill all viruses and bacteria in the air as well as on surfaces,” she add
