Damp hands can spread up to 1,000 times more bacteria than dry hands.
Effective hand hygiene always starts with thorough hand washing followed by drying your hands properly.
Bacteria and viruses deposited onto surfaces can survive for several hours. When these contaminated surfaces are touched, bacteria can be transferred. That’s why it’s important that hands are dried thoroughly.
Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers feature touch-free technology and a dry time of 10-14 seconds. All have HEPA filters installed as standard, which allows them to capture 99.95% of particles, including bacteria and viruses.
Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers are a touch-free drying solution, engineered to diminish the risk of surface to hand transmission. We recommend, as with all surfaces in the washroom, the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer is included in your regular cleaning schedule.
Thorough hand washing is crucial to reduce the risk of bacterial transmission.
The CDC and WHO recommend at least 20 seconds of extensive cleaning.
