Majorly stationed in our toilets, hand dryers are very beneficial in enhancing hygiene on washed hands. Soap and water work well to get rid of some harmful germs that we have picked up but science has made us understand that the process is not yet complete until we make use of a hand dryer. Schools are known to be a breeding space for germs not only because they are a high-traffic area but in fact that there are limited washing areas proportionate to the school population.
How does a Hand Dryer Kill Germs?
Hand dryers typically use a motion sensor to detect when an object (your hands) moves into its path. It kills germs by drawing air from its surrounding atmosphere and blowing it over the hands. This process has brought about some very negative theories about hand dryers spreading germs, which are quite inaccurate for modern hand dryers that are designed with a built-in high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter that allows hand dryers to suck in 99% of airborne contaminants.
