It was found from the data that 91.7% of the barbers around Presco campus are aware of instrument sterilization, 8.3% are not. 83.3% possess accurate knowledge of instrument sterilization amongst customers, 16.3% are not aware. 75% of the barbers practice instrument sterilization. Commonly used method of sterilization by the barbers includes chemical method and burning flame.
