Sam Campagna provides some tips you need to follow every day for blade maintenance, to get the best out of your tools.
The benefit to looking after your clippers is that they will last longer, saving you money in the long term and ensuring you get the best cutting results.
One of the most important parts of blade maintenance that often gets overlooked is maintaining high hygiene levels. 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.
“USING THE HYGIENE SPRAY ON YOUR BLADES BEFORE EACH USE GUARANTEES THE HYGIENE LEVEL TO ALL OF YOUR CLIENTS.”
I oil my blades at the start of every day, and on busy days, I’ll oil them 2-3 more times when they’re heavily used. At the end of the day, after I’ve cleaned the clippers, I oil the top and side of the blades to allow the oil to properly soak in overnight. Oiling regularly helps to keep the blades at optimum sharpness, so you won’t need to replace your blades so often.
“OILING REGULARLY HELPS TO KEEP THE BLADES AT OPTIMUM SHARPNESS, SO YOU WON’T NEED TO REPLACE YOUR BLADES SO OFTEN.”
On busy days, I use Blade Ice during each haircut to maintain the clipper performance as it keeps the blade cool, making it more comfortable for you and your client. It also lubricates and protects against corrosion by blasting away hair and debris in the blades.
