As a nail technician, you probably know that dust is generated when filing or milling artificial nails. But do you also know that these tiny particles can be potentially dangerous for your health and that of your customers? It’s important to understand the risks of inhaling nail dust, as well as what steps you can take to protect yourself and your customers.
Nail dust is known to contain microscopic elements including toxic chemicals, plastics, bacteria and fungi. Prolonged exposure to nail dust can lead to serious respiratory diseases and eye conditions such as conjunctivitis, inflammation of the mucous membranes of the eye. These particles should therefore not enter our body.
As a nail technician, you must therefore ensure that your working environment is safe and hygienic. One way to do this is to invest in a professional nail vacuum that effectively reduces nail dust. This will prevent these harmful particles from being trapped in the air and inhaled.
