Lightbulb ACRYLIC

My acrylics are in ok shape but im thinking they could be changed. I have owned the salon for over a year and have changed a couple of them. Others look better when taken out and polished, scrubbed and cleaned but i still think they should all be switched out. How often do u all change your acrylics completely. Any tips on keeping them clearer throughout the year. thanks in advance

Re: ACRYLIC

Yeah thats the advice i got too but I think thats not enough. I mean some are foggy at times. they clear up great when they are buffed and polished but still i dont want them to be blocking out anything for the tanners.

Re: ACRYLIC

True. I also know that some salons (depending on the usage of the bed) change the acrylics every six months.

Re: ACRYLIC

yeah i was thinking about just doing it once a year and doing good polishing and buffing in between to keep them looking nice. i think if i am doubting it it just needs to be done...its just going to be a big expense

Re: ACRYLIC

Florida policy (Health Department) states that if you can feel the crack with your nail, the acrylic must be changed. I had a scratch in on that they made me change.

Re: ACRYLIC

so are you both saying you wouldnt change it unless there was a crack or break? i read somewhere that it can block up to 7% of the bulbs etc etc...

Re: ACRYLIC

The acrylics for those beds are inexpensive. I really don't think there is a time schedule for changing acrylics. I think its more if they break, or how ever often you feel the need to change them.
