Some of the most toxic indoor air is found in nail salons. There are a number of noxious fumes in the polish, remover, varnish and adhesives commonly used at nail salons. Chemicals that are used in nail care products include, but are not limited to, toluene and formaldehyde, which the federal Occupational Safety & Health Administration classifies as carcinogens (cancer-causing).
These solvents emit strong doses of chemicals, known as volatile organic compounts (VOCs), that are dangerous to the health of nail professionals, other salon employees, salon clients, local residents and area workers.
We carry several air purifier models that are effective in purifying the air of VOCs and chemicals unique to nail salons, hair salons and spas, each being best suited for specific environments.
Air Oasis G3 3000 Xtreme Air Purifier
The Air Oasis G3 3000 Xtreme UV Air Purifier is perfect for occupied areas with higher levels of known contaminants such as pet odors, mold, cooking odors, VOCs and more. It is also great for small commercial applications such as hair or nail salons (1 workstation per unit with some acrylic nails or 2 workstations with NO acrylic nails), smoky places and doctors' offices. The Xtreme is twice the strength of the residential Air Oasis 3000, enabling you to have a much higher level of effectiveness in areas of higher contamination. It's capable of not only sanitizing your air, but also killing surface mold, bacteria, viruses etc. Of all the air cleaners on the market that can treat nail product odors, the Air Oasis G3 3000 Xtreme is the quietest and requires the lowest maintenance.
Air Oasis 5000PRO Commercial Unit (3 or More Stations) or High Acrylic Volume
The The Air Oasis 5000PRO air purifier is a commercial unit, but still available to the public. This unit contains two 9-inch AHPCO Cells and two fans. High speed engages both fans, while low engages only one fan. The Air Oasis 5000PRO has the strength of two Air Oasis ACT 9" Induct units, but is in a portable case. This unit is only recommended for commercial places with high pollution; for instance, smoky bars and restaurants with 6 or more concurrent smokers, large nail salons doing a high volume of acrylic nails or large kennels with 25 or more animals. It should be hung from the ceiling or mounted high on a wall. During peak pollution times it can be operated on high, if needed.
Airpura V-600 Air Cleaner with Super Carbon (1 to 6 Stations)
The Airpura V-600 has a hefty 18 pound super carbon designed for problems that are formaldehyde and ammonia based, like products used in nail and hair salons and spas, and a 5-year HEPA filter to capture nail dust. The V-600 can treat 1 to 6 nail stations (fewer if mostly acrylic nails). The two special microbial (bacteria and viruses) suppressing filters help to protect the 18 pound carbon bed. If your salon does a high volume of acrylic nails, the Airpura C-600 with a 26 pound super carbon upgrade is your best choice.
All Airpura air cleaners have felt gaskets that are used to seal the filter chamber, eliminating rubber seal off gassing. Airpura uses a powerful, variable speed integrated fan/motor, letting you choose the rate you clean your air from super quiet to premium power filtering with a maximum of 560 CFM capacity. One V-600 or C-600 can treat up to a 2,000 square foot space. Color choices are black, white or cream. Read about Airpura V-600 and C-600 Air Cleaners
