Whether for your home or business, touchless faucets have become increasingly popular due to COVID-19. And for good reason, as there are many benefits to hands-free faucets. No matter if you’re updating your business or remodeling your home, here are some reasons you should consider switching to a touchless faucet.
Budget & Environmentally Friendly
When you wash your hands in a sink, you use about 2 gallons of water every minute. Not to mention, if an employee, client, or someone in your home accidentally leaves a faucet running, that’s a lot of wasted water and money down the drain.
A touchless faucet only turns on when you need it and will automatically shut off when you’re finished using it. Instead of using a few extra seconds of water to turn off the faucet or lather up hands with soap, a touchless faucet conserves water by shutting off the valve when you’ve left the sink. Over a few years, you can save hundreds of gallons of water and help lower your water bill with a no-touch faucet.
A touchless faucet can also make maintenance a lot easier. Cleaning handles, replacing damaged handles, and even replacing the entire fixture can be a hassle. One single unit is a lot easier to keep up maintenance-wise than three separate fixture elements (a spout and two handles).
Prevents the Spread of Germs
Standard faucets can be a breeding ground for germs and grime if you don’t clean them every day. When you wash your hands after handling raw food or using the bathroom, you could leave bacteria and viruses on the handles. These germs can make their way back onto you or someone else’s hands. A touchless faucet can prevent the spread of germs and keep your family, customers, or employees healthy and free from viruses.
Keeps Sinks and Faucets Clean
Speaking of being clean, a touchless faucet will also be cleaner. A hands-free faucet doesn’t get as visibly dirty and won’t come into contact with as many germs. This means you won’t have to clean the faucet or sink as often.
