Your comfort and safety are our top priorities. This means we don’t take shortcuts in maintaining a clean and sanitary environment. Most salons use a UV light, which is often not effective enough to destroy microorganisms. At Once Upon a Spa we use a medical-grade autoclave and hospital-grade disinfectants to make sure all of our implements, including all those for manicures, pedicures, sugaring, and facials are completely sterilized. Anything that cannot be sterilized, including files and foot files, are brand new for every client.
We do not use pedicure tubs or foot spas because most types circulate water which often becomes a breeding ground for harmful bacteria with a high risk of causing pedicure infections. Since the water has to be passed through tubing and passageways, every inch of this journey leaves possible spots for bacteria to deposit and develop. Instead, we use pedicure bowls that we can completely clean and disinfect. There is nowhere for bacteria to hide and accumulate.
Our linens are thoroughly cleaned in a washer and dryer certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF). Each wash and dry sanitation cycle takes about 70 minutes (140 minutes total), to ensure the highest standard of cleanliness. Finally, we have installed medical-grade air purifiers in each room to increase the level of protection we can provide to our clients.
