How to Clean a Hair Salon Floor


Hair salon cleaning is something that might seem simple to the general public, but if you’re running a business, you already know that cleaning a hair salon isn’t just about sweeping up the hair on the floor.

Getting everything done every single day and keeping your business not only clean-looking but completely sanitized can be quite time-consuming, especially during busy periods. And we don’t even want to describe the types of diseases that can be transferred in a hair salon if sanitization standards are not adhered to!

Hair Salon Floors

Your space should give the appearance of being well-lit, bright, and pleasant to be in. A well-cleaned floor can do a lot for a space, and this is especially true in smaller places or areas with less light. Floors should be disinfected on a daily basis and polished or waxed every few months to ensure that they look as shiny or new as possible.

When you’re hiring cleaners to service your salon, you will want to find a company that understands how to maintain your floor based on the type of material it’s made of. Vinyl, for instance, is quite common and modern looking and is fairly easy to maintain with simple vacuuming and mopping.

Hardwood and tile can be a little bit trickier, with special solution needed for hardwood and extra cleaning that’s possibly required for ceramic tile, since grout tends to collect dirt and the tile can become dull-looking after a period of time.

Salon Cleaning Checklist

Busy stylists and salon owners don’t have a lot of extra time on their hands. The clients come first and deserve 100% of their attention – after all, this is not only essential to keep the business going but to thrive in the face of competition that might be right around the corner.  

Here’s a basic hair salon cleaning checklist that you can use:  

  • Sweep chair area after each client
  • Clean all floor areas at the end of the day (mop, sweep, vacuum)
  • Clean windows
  • Dust all surfaces
  • Wash and steam curtains
  • Deep clean bathrooms after closing
  • Sanitize coffee pot handles, doorknobs, etc.
  • Keep work areas well-lit
  • Ensure proper stock of bathroom supplies
  • Sanitize sinks daily  
  • Wash bottles, soaps, and items in common areas  
  • Ensure staff understands proper disinfecting procedures
  • All work areas must be disinfected daily
  • Use towels around the neck area when using common items that touch the neck
  • Disinfect linens
  • Ensure ventilation systems are cleaned and maintained   

This list is not exhaustive but will be a good guideline to make sure you keep your environment as presentable and healthy as possible.
