Do I Need an Extraction Fan for Spray Tanning?

An extraction fan can be a great weapon in your arsenal. As the name suggests, the fan’s purpose is to collect any excess spray tan particles and purify the air as you work. This not only provides that extra level of professionalism to your business, but also provides a nice atmosphere for you and your client to work together in. Why should I get an extraction fan? No matter the business, if you are working in a confined space you […]
