Cleaning and Maintaining Your Spray Tan Equipment to Ensure Client Satisfaction all Through Tanning Season

Tanning season is in full swing, so I wanted to touch on an important subject - cleaning and maintaining your spray tanning equipment! Since your equipment is essential in performing these services, it is vital to the success of your business that you keep your spray tanning equipment in tip-top shape.

Daily Maintenance 
An example of tanning equipment that
has not been properly maintained -
Buildup of tanning solution on your
equipment can lead to equipment failure
  • Clean gun daily. If you are spraying clients back to back, you do not need to clean the gun between
    each client, but if you have time between appointments, be sure to flush your gun after each spray. Tanning solution can get caught in the gun and cause clogs or "speckly" spray tans! Spraying  airbrush cleaner, followed by clean water, through the gun after your last appointment each day will keep your gun from getting buildup stuck inside.
  • It is recommended that you empty all solution left in your solution jars at the end of the day. Never let them sit overnight!
  • Wipe down the outside of the gun, paying special attention to the cup threads on the gun and on the cup. If solution is left on the threads, your cup may not attach properly, and could come loose during a treatment.
  • Wipe down exposed parts, including the turbine/base, hoses, cords, etc. It is important that the motor is able to breathe freely, so avoid allowing overspray or dirt to build up on any part of your unit. The easiest way to keep this from happening is to wipe it down daily. 
  • Be sure to clean any trapped hair, dust, etc from the intake vents to prevent overheating and/or fire hazards.
Tanning Solution buildup on plugs can be dangerous. A quick wipe-down
each evening can help prevent damage to your equipment.
















Weekly Maintenance
  • Clean filters. Locate the filter on your unit, remove, and wash with warm, soapy water. Allow to completely air dry before replacing.
  • Thoroughly clean all parts of your gun, including the needle and spray nozzle. Follow the cleaning instructions provided by the manufacturer.
  • Periodically thoroughly rinse all solution jars under warm water in the sink.
Spray tanning is becoming more and more popular, and this is a great service to add to your treatment menu to increase client satisfaction, loyalty, and your bottom line.

How to? Sunless Spray Tanning Application....

At Pure Spa Direct, we are a MAJOR advocate for anything sunless! We have the LARGEST selection of SPA & SALON supplies, and the MOST LUXURIOUS sunless tanning solutions and body care on the market (in my opinion and our clients). What also sets us apart is our Customer Service. When you call us (as long as we are open), you will be greeted by a live person that cares and actually wants to help you. If you have a question that we don’t immediately know the answer to, we will do our best to find out and will call you back. Our goal is to serve you, so you can service and pamper others.

A universal goal of the spa and salon industry is to BEAUTIFY! One way to drastically enhance the appearance of all your clients is through Sunless Spray Tanning. People are increasingly becoming afraid of the sun, and and are searching for alternatives. Spray Tanning is the fastest growing sector in the industry, and is just going to continue growing at an astronomical rate. Not to mention... the IMMENSE profit potential!

Since we are a premier sunless distributor, we receive calls all the time wondering if we provide training on the application. While, we are more than happy to answer any questions, and provide guidance, we leave the training up to you. Spray Tanning, like an art, can become mastery with practice and experience. If you are new to this, I found an excellent video that shows how a salon in New York City applies the basic principles of performing a tanning service to help jump start your training. Enjoy! ;-)
