1) Offer Protection Against Disease
Electric hand drying devises and especially Jet Air Dryers can spread pathogenic micro-organisms. Viruses can survive on hands for a considerable time: Influenza lasts 10-15 minutes, Herpes for up to two hours, the common cold for up to one week and Rotavirus, which causes gastro-intestinal infections, for up to 60 days. Proper hand washing and hand drying are essential to minimise infection. Paper towels spread significantly fewer bacteria and viruses – both on surfaces and in the air – to offer the least contaminated washroom environment.
