Clippers and trimmers are designed to work hard in any busy salon or barber shop, we expect them to perform day after day and they will, providing they are maintained well enough. Here at CoolBlades, the vast majority of the faults we find when we service the damaged hair clippers sent to us for repair are due to poor maintenance, with lack of oil and poor cleaning being the biggest culprits.
