Curling Iron Risk
We had a close call in the salon last Friday at 11:30 pm resulting in the fire department being called and a door being busted down due to a smoldering comb. Unfortunately they busted down the wrong door and fortunately I was able to get there in time before they busted through any more doors and we located the source. Upon further inspection I found that 80 percent of you have unsafe curling iron/stove working areas and unsafe storage of these tools. Please correct the items on the "Safety Inspection" sheet I left in your room, I will be inspecting your rooms every week randomly until EVERYONE is in compliance and I feel safe that yours and my businesses are no longer at risk.
THREE curling irons in total with no Auto-Shutoff still on last Friday night. One was laying on a towel, one was in a wicker basket and the other was laying on a comb (the smoking comb). Even after the incident on Friday night there was one iron found on Tuesday, luckily it was in an approved metal curling iron holder.
TWO wax machines found left on. One was found Friday night and another one on Tuesday.
I found more than a thirty curling irons throughout the building sitting on towels.
I have photos of everyone's burned towels being used as hot iron mats and irons being stored on them. I will not post these photos this week but might just create a Marvin Zindler like log of infractions and post the photos publicly in the future if not corrected. Alternatively, I can excercise my right to raise your rent (just you) or evict you if you do not take my request seriously, I don't care how long you have been using towels as a working surface, it is not safe.
There are solutions to your problem:
Again, please correct the items on the "Safety Inspection" sheet I left in your room, I will be inspecting your rooms every week randomly until EVERYONE is in compliance and I feel safe that yours and my businesses are no longer at risk. Examples below:
