We take sanitation very seriously at Polished. In accordance with the requirements of Halton Public Health, all implements are washed with soap and water, and then placed in Accel CS20, a hospital-grade disinfectant and chemosterilant that utilizes accelerated hydrogen peroxide. They are then rinsed and stored in a special tray where they’re safe from contamination.

Any items that cannot be disinfected such as buffers, emery boards, non-metal files and toe separators are discarded or given to the client. We do NOT keep used tools/files to be used for the clients’ next visit. Storing contaminated tools in boxes or plastic containers is not a hygienic practice, nor is using personal care tools that clients bring from home. Because these tools are not cleaned properly, we do not use them in the salon.

Fresh, clean towels are used for each service. Soiled towels are washed with bleach.

We pass our health inspections with flying colors! Take a look at our gallery of inspection forms.

Should you have any questions about our practices, please ask us. We’re passionate about protecting our customers and are happy to answer all inquiries.
