Cleanliness is paramount in the cosmetology industry. Following the guidelines for sanitation and sterilization takes great responsibility and requires vigilance. One single technician can put his or her entire clientele's health at risk by not practicing stringent sanitation and disinfection guidelines. In addition, salon technicians should be well versed in the types of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites they may encounter so they may identify infections. The transmission of these infections would be properly eliminated through sanitization and disinfection in the salon environment.
