    I've never really worked on a dedicated nail salon, closest I come is the one at the Penny's in town. I think the only true way to fix this problem is exhausting as much of the stinky air as you can, and dumping more fresh (conditioned) air into the space.

    I suppose you could go the route of charcoal filters and a ton of other things, but that'd be expensive and likely wouldn't work.

    Besides, if you exhaust all that bad air outside, it'll either keep the pigeons away, or at least get them high!

    I would imagine some kind of ventilation system. Either the whole place or something custom made. IE.... a register right over the work station connected to an exhaust.?????

    Ashrae and code in my state requires something like 1/2 the volume be OSA for salon apps. What comes in must go out, so provisions for that will need to be in place.
    Good luck making the existing equipment handle the hot or cold OSA load. Utility bills will skyrocket during peak summer and winter conditions but the iaq will improve.
    If the DOH wanders thru the door, compliance will be mandatory and immediate.

    Check you oa intake and have them run the fan all the time.

    I can dig that , lol. And perhaps the reason there are not stronger codes in this " industrial process " ( or a salon owner knows someone on the ASHRAE board ).

    I looked a job many years ago and quoted fume hoods over each nail station ( make up air and exhaust ). I lost out to a hack that installed an 80 cfm bath room fan. The salon is still going strong ( regular state inspections ) , except the nail dept. was relocated and not the bath fan , lol.

    I remember spraying the red 3M duct liner adhesive . After gluing a job we'd be as high as the sky. We had to get a spray booth sometime in the late 1980's , lol ( then went to water based glue ).

    The nail department was at least as bad as the 3m glue.

    PAINT STINK

    Thanks all who ansererd my post.The problem is the operation is in a new building (tight) and long and skinny shape.There are chairs everywhere, there is no way to combine painting. The only answer is changing all the air all the time unless some type filter in returns that would cut down stink THANKS

    if its in a strip mall ensure the walls are sealed from bottom to very tippy top...that stink can migrate. We did one last year, sealed it up and installed a large exhaust fan out the back wall with ducts leading to each station..all hidden in the walls. Open the fresh air on the RTU to allow for make-up air. All of this was per the building owner.



    3 months later returned for a ac problem (filters clogged) and found the fan off. Asked them why "we no need..thank you, thank you"...um...ok its your place. Wrote it in my notes and have not herd from them again.

    we have used charcoal filters in a few factories and had semi good success.

    I've got one in my center and what we made them do was intall an exhaust fan that is zoned over each station. Man does that fan stink.{make your eyes water} I wonder if the motor should be explosion proof?
    Nemo me impune lacessit.

    How much blood do I have to bathe in to get clean?

    Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.
