3. The Blades Are Dirty
Hair, dirt and grease can stop blades cutting and therefore, regular cleaning is required.
One of the most important parts of blade maintenance that often gets overlooked is maintaining high hygiene levels. You should remove any loose hair and debris using a blade cleaning brush to brush out anything that might be trapped in the blade.
If you have a rinseable snap on/off blade on your clipper, you can easily remove the blade and rinse it clean. Avoid leaving your blades wet as this may cause rusting.
To thoroughly clean and sanitise your blades, you can use Wahl Hygienic Clipper Spray. Using the Hygiene Spray on your blades before each use guarantees the hygiene level to all of your clients. It’s a quick and easy way to keep your blades clean and helps to resist bacteria and viruses.
Care should be taken to dry and oil the blade after cleaning as no liquid should be allowed to enter the clipper.
