Why It is Important to Maintain Clipper Blades?

Grooming tools are the backbones for a successful grooming business. Even if you groom your pet at home you need to properly maintain the grooming tools at all times. Let us see why it is important to maintain clipper blades:

                LONG LIFE OF CLIPPERS

The life of our clippers depends on the life of the blades and that’s why we have to take good care of clipper blades to ensure that our clippers last for a long time. If the clipper blades are poorly maintained then it will increase the wear and tear of the clippers. When blades are sharpened, cleaned, and oiled well with Blade Oil, they help clippers to run smoothly and efficiently.

When clipper blades are well maintained then it makes it easier for us to groom pets. If we try to groom a dog with a dirty clipper then the dog’s hair will get caught up in the clipper blade due to previous hair and debris that are present in the blade. You won't be able to clip smoothly and the clipper will pull the dog’s hair causing it discomfort. Clean and sharp blades enable us to give a smoother and quicker cut to our dog’s fur.

If you use a dirty clipper blade on your pet then they could fall sick. Diseases and allergies among pets could spread when you use dirty clipper blades. That’s why you should regularly clean your clipper blades as it will prevent your pet from falling ill.

                  TO AVOID DOWNTIME

Proper maintenance of your clippers and blades is the key to a flourishing grooming business. If your clipper blades are poorly maintained then they will get damaged more easily and might even stop working. This will cause downtime in your grooming and make it difficult for you to work smoothly. So you can choose to use a Cleaning Brush to make sure all the delicate parts are cleaned without any risks. That’s why your grooming tools need to be in top condition at all times to ensure that there is no downtime in your grooming.
