Forest Spa Boutique

Sanitation

Behind the scenes of Forest Spa Boutique

At Forest Spa Boutique we believe that we should not only comply with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, California and Santa Clara County Departments of Public Health, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and the State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology, but also go above and beyond all government and client expectations. Our team of passionate spa technicians will ensure that each treatment room, the lobby, and the restroom will be cleaned and disinfected between every single client for your safety. We would also like to inform you that our team frequently gets tested for Covid19. If you have any questions regarding our sanitation protocols, please do not hesitate to ask your spa technician for additional information.

  1. Due to Covid19 the Santa Clara County Health Department has given our industry strict rules on how many guests we can have per SQF in our facility. We request you to please wait outside for your appointment.
  2. Please wear a face mask when you enter the spa.
  3. We implemented a touch-free check-in and check-out process for your convenience. In case we do need your credit card for a transaction we will return your card wiped clean.
  4. Due to Covid19 we removed all magazines, brochures, displays, and testers in our waiting area. Alcohol wipes are available at our front desk in case you would like to sanitize your smartphone or tablet.
  5. We request that all our guests wash their hands before their service. Soap & disposable towels will be provided in each treatment room. Hand sanitizer and hand lotion are also available at our front desk.
  6. To support clients with allergies and with Covid19 in mind each treatment room is permanently set up with an air purifier that contains a HEPA Filter. Our air purifying filters and heating/AC filters are switched out every 2 months.
  7. We follow all guidelines from the CAMTC (California Massage Therapy Council) and State Board for Barbering and Cosmetology regarding personal hygiene which includes washing hands and arms up to the elbows between clients, daily clean spa uniforms, short manicured nails, and hair fastened back away from the face.
  8. We follow all guidelines from the CAMTC (California Massage Therapy Council) and State Board for Barbering and Cosmetology regarding sanitation by using only EPA-registered disinfectant and sanitation solutions. All of our EPA disinfectants and sanitation solutions are anti-bacterial and high-level anti-viral disinfectants that also destroy Tuberculosis, Hepatitis A (AER), Hepatitis B, HIV-1, and the Polio Virus.
  9. Even though the State Board for Barbering and Cosmetology does not enforce a second heat disinfecting procedure for facial or waxing implements, we decided to also add this process to our protocols. For your safety, we also sterilize with a medical-grade steam autoclave. A medical-grade steam autoclave heats to 220 degrees Celsius and will destroy all forms of microbial life. All other used implements are disposables and will be trashed after a single-use.
  10. To keep our staff healthy we request that you reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well. During Covid19 our staff will be wearing surgical masks, face shields or goggles, and gloves. Our hospital grade gloves are latex-free.
  11. All linen is soaked, washed, and dried on high temperatures with bleach and soap. Bleach is sodium hypochlorite, which can effectively kill germs like viruses, bacteria, and fungi. An additional rinse to remove any unwanted bleach scents is added to each laundry cycle.
  12. All treatment rooms will be fully sanitized between each client and set up with fresh linen and clean implements.
  13. Our front desk staff will disinfect all high touch areas in our lobby and restroom between each client, including staff workstations, phones, mouse & keyboards, product displays, door handles & light switches, etc.
  14. We implemented a controlled health process for our team. This involves scanning body temperatures at home daily and before each shift. We do not want our staff to be the silent carrier that infects coworkers or clients. In case of a fever or symptoms, our staff is required to consult a healthcare provider or the local health department and follow their instructions. They are not allowed to come to work until their healthcare provider has cleared them.
