Pedicure Spa Basin Liners
DO NOT Address The Transmitted Germs in Drains and Jets.

If your favorite Pedicure spa, or one you visit while traveling replaces a plastic liner between customers, they could be putting your feet at risk! Bacteria, Fungi, and Viruses Accumulate in the Jets. Cleaning and Disinfecting the Spa While Running is Necessary

 

None of these cheap, disposable liners mitigate the risk of disease germs in the basin, drain, or the jets. The EPA requires disinfecting for at least 10 minutes between clients.

 “What Are The Risks?”

Prior to Pedicure

  1. Prior clients transmit communicable diseases into water, including basin and jets

    1. 75% of nail salons do not follow state hygiene guidelines for foot baths.

    2. 55 M people in the US have toenail fungus in at least one toe

  2. Paying customers are seldom turned away

    1. Pedicurists are not properly trained medically to turn away customers with “gross feet”

    2. Pedicures are sought out as solutions to improve appearance of toenails with fungus for cosmetic reasons

  3. Injured feet, traumatized toenails, or cracked heels from others can transmit disease

During Pedicure

  1. Micro-cuts can occur during procedure that can provide means of transmission of infection

  2. Tools are not properly disinfected using EPA protocol

  3. Pumice stones and other exfoliating tools are porous and can not be properly sterilized

  4. Transmissions of diseases including:

    1. Bacteria: Staph infections, MRSA

    2. Athletes foot fungus

    3. Warts

    4. Toenail Fungus

    5. HIV

    6. Hepatitis B

  5. The use of plastic liners does not address germs in the basin, drain, and jets.

  6. Pre-existing medical conditions like Diabetes, immunocompromised, or older clients have significantly higher risks of having toenail fungus and some infections

After Pedicure (Short and Long Term)

  1. Painful infections can occur in days

  2. Seeing a physician, podiatrist or dermatologist becomes necessary, time consuming, and costly

    1. Toenail fungus can be present for life with few medical solutions and limited efficacy

    2. Topical solutions have limited effectiveness if used early

    3. Oral Medications risk drug interactions and adverse effects on the kidneys and liver

  3. Dangerous medical conditions can occur if client is taking medications like blood thinners to boil clotting

  4. Medical pedicures by advanced or medically trained specialists will be required for future pedicures increasing costs over time
