Friends Overspray question/ thinking outside of the box

HI,

I started by business about 14 months ago in a room in my home with it's own bathroom. It's really taking off and I'm so excited but the overspray is getting to me! The room is large- not ideal- obviously and the spray goes everywhere (I use a tent, of course). Rather than build a small/permanent room inside of my salon, my idea is to build a room with curtains that slide around the tent in hopes to contain the overspray. (also this room has carpet, if I add this mini-room inside my salon, I could possibly put a hard surface floor in that area). Does anyone have any thoughts on this or might you be doing something similar? My vision is that the curtains/fabric walls would go all the way to the ceiling and open and close on some sort of track. Of course, I could make this mini room permanent too but I would need to be able to easily remove the "walls" to clean them- any thoughts or suggestions would be great! Thanks

Get a professional down-draft overspray booth; it will be worth the investment. Norvell makes a good one.

Re: Overspray question/ thinking outside of the box

My concern is why is so much getting everywhere? What kind of spray unit are you using? You need to invest in a high performance filtration unit for your own health IMO. :)

Re: Overspray question/ thinking outside of the box

Thanks for the input- I am probably spraying too much solution as a semi-newbie so I will work on that...does anyone else have any thoughts? How often do you change the filter on your fan?

Re: Overspray question/ thinking outside of the box

Yea, that was my first though, that you are prob spraying too much. Overspray should be minimal. What kind of machine do you use? Are your clients still really wet when you are finished? I have a "curtain room" in my salon for Sunless. We want to get permanent walls eventually for a little more privacy (for some reason a few of my ladies think the fabric walls are sound proof and say allllll kinds of things lol), but it's worked great! And I've never gotten any overspray on the fabric. Most equipment companies will help you calibrate your gun if you give them a call. That may be a good start for you! Good luck with everything, congrats on your growing business!
