How Hands-Free Washing and Sanitation Keeps You Protected
Washing and sanitizing your hands is one of the easiest and most effective ways to protect your health and prevent the spread of disease. However, when you go to the sink to wash your hands, you should know that you’re not the only person who’s used it!
Touching sink taps, soap dispensers, hand sanitizer pumps, and other common surfaces exposes you to viruses and bacteria left behind by previous users. By investing in touchless faucets and dispensers, you can reduce that exposure and protect the health of you and everyone around you.
Germs Like to Make Themselves at Home
We know what you’re thinking – sinks and hand sanitizer dispensers are clean spaces! How can germs survive on those surfaces long enough to infect you? The truth is your sink is as clean as you think it is. Even though soap and water are involved, it doesn’t get the same thorough cleaning that your hands do, allowing germs to settle onto surfaces and stay there for hours or even days. That includes germs from touching the taps, droplets from people coughing or sneezing in the area, and airborne viruses and bacteria.
Prevent What’s on Your Hands from Contaminating Others
You don’t just collect germs from faucets and sanitizers, you leave them behind. Some of the germs you’re looking to eliminate can escape the scourge of soapy water and hand sanitizer by moving onto taps and dispensers, where they can stay until someone else comes along to unwittingly pick them up.
By using touchless handwashing and sanitizing stations, you not only protect yourself, but everyone else who uses your sink. From family members to co-workers, limiting your exposure to viruses and bacteria using touchless faucets and sanitizers stops the spread of disease and keeps everyone you care about safer.
Other Benefits of Switching to Touchless Faucets and Dispensers
Touchless faucets and sanitizers can do more for you than just protect you from infections and contagious diseases. There are a lot of additional benefits, including:
- Less wasted water
- Greater durability
- Better accessibility
- Easier-to-clean sinks
- And more!
