The Secrets of Good Tanning: Good Tanning Equipment, Proper Equipment Maintenance & Safety
The latest fad in tanning units is brightly painted plastic tanning beds with lots of racing stripes, bells and whistles, etc. What tans you in a tanning bed are the bulbs. Tanning bulbs have a limited life and their UV output decreases as the bulbs age. UV bulbs must be cleaned and changed on a regular basis. Many nail shops and beauty salons don’t track usage on their bulbs …. so the customer may not get the UV exposure they are paying for. Tanning beds need to be cleaned internally on a regular basis and the bulbs cleaned periodically between changes to give maximum UV output.
At Island Tan, our computer monitors the exact number of hours on every bulb in every bed. We perform cleaning and maintenance on a regularly scheduled basis. In fact, we change our tanning bulbs sooner than the bulb manufacturer recommends. We want to ensure that our customers get absolutely the best tan possible.
At Island Tan, your safety matters to us. Overexposure to the sun, whether outside or in a tanning bed, can be dangerous, so proper maintenance of all tanning equipment is important! Computer control of tanning time can also help prevent overexposure. We use Lucasol bed cleaning solution to clean our tanning units effectively. Lucasol is the leading tanning salon cleaner and is very effective at killing germs, it is used in many hospitals. The real key to clean beds is our people. We absolutely, positively guarantee that between customers every bed is cleaned to the best of our ability and the entire salon is always kept spotless.
