Are Touchless Bathroom Fixtures Helping Keep Us Healthy?

More homes and public toilets are adopting the touchless bathroom options, thankfully, plumbers from Mr. Rooter Plumbing can assist homeowners to get these amazing toilet fixtures. There is a wide range of automatic restroom fixtures to consider, these include the automatic dispensers, faucets, hand dryers, flushers, and even doors. It is believed that the touchless toilet fixtures are the alternatives to the germ-infested public toilet fixtures.

What makes public toilet fixtures more appealing?

Public fixtures make public toilets cleaner. Manual fixtures are the reasons for the easy spread of germs in the public, therefore a system that allows the use of the toilet, washing, and drying of hands without touching anything will make the public healthier and cleaner. Touchless toilet technology offers great peace of mind.

The cleaner of such toilets can clean faster. Since touchless technology makes public toilets easier to clean, the janitorial staffs will surely be excited to have such technology around always. With automated flushers, there will be less emergency restroom usage and when people see the toilets cleaner, they will be encouraged to leave the toilet clean at all times.

The toilet owner will save more money with a touchless technology. Since the toilet fixtures are dispensing automatically, the amount of water and hot air pressure plus other toiletries used, are well-controlled. This will eventually save the toilet owners money. There wouldnt be any need for matrons taking too many towels to the toilet, and there wouldnt be too many turning of toilet faucets, hence there will be less money spent on utilities.

Are touchless toilet technologies actually healthier to humans?

When it comes to the theoretical aspect, touchless technologies are much healthier than manual toilet fixtures, but several studies conducted on touchless toilet technologies has put its health-promoting status in question.

According to a study where some samples were collected from water coming from touchless technology, it was discovered that roughly half of the samples tested positive for some strains of bacteria while 15% of samples collected from manual toilets tested positive for the same strains of bacteria.

The reason for this might be connected to the fact that touchless toilet technologies do have a totally different type of plumbing system, and these plumbing connections can be the breeding surface for the bacteria. For this reason, the cleanliness of touchless toilet technology also depends on the type of plumbing system used.

In conclusion, touchless toilet facilities may not be as clean as we have envisaged, but they are still the better alternative when compared to manual toilet methods. You need to be aware of the type of the type of toilet fixtures you are using to keep yourself clean in public toilets.

The fact that touchless technologies are more convenient than manual toilets make them suitable for homes. Mr. Rooter Plumbing can help you install these toilet fixtures alongside the most suitable and compatible plumbing system that will make them much cleaner and healthier for the entire household or for the staffs and clients of your commercial organization.
