Hand dryers are safe and government-backed
The UK government has joined up with global health experts, including the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) t approve the use of hand dryers during the COVID-19 campaign. This follows a campaign from the hand drying industry who requested an update of official guidelines.
According to the UK government’s ‘Working Safely During Coronavirus’ guidance, good hand hygiene should be promoted on business premises and that businesses should provide adequate hand drying facilities in the form of either paper towels or electric hand dryers, the latter being the most hygienic and cost-effective option.
Hand dryers leave hands cleaner
It is widely known that hands become contaminated with microorganisms after using the toilet or touching a contaminated surface. This is why we wash our hands.
But what happens when you wash your hands and then use a hand dryer?
This is a question that has been looked at in-depth by scientists and researchers and is one that has become more relevant due to the still ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic. According to scientists, it’s possible that the way we dry our hands could leave us susceptible to leaving bathrooms with germs still on our hands. This depends on how hands are dried, however; different hand-drying methods are thought to have different effects on the viral loads on our hands after they are dried.
Using paper towels, for example, has a different effect than using hand dryers does. In the 1990s, a team of Canadian scientists investigated these differences by examining the vial and bacterial load on peoples’ hands after they dried them with different methods. This study found that the use of warm air drying instead of using paper or cloth towels consistently led to the lowest viral and bacterial load on hands after drying,
Years later, another study found that the viral and bacterial load of washed hands was significantly lower when a jet air dryer such as the Dyson Airblade was used. This led to the conclusion that this method of drying significantly reduces the risk of transmitting infections through touch. Furthermore, the use of HEPA filters in these hand dryers helps to remove 99.9% of airborne bacteria under 0.3 microns from the airflow, and its antibacterial plastic casing helps to reduce touch transmission.
Hand dryers and COVID-19
A good hand dryer is an important tool in your arsenal as a business that is helping to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s important to include at least one in all restrooms to encourage hand washing.
Hand washing is a tried and tested, scientifically proven preventative method that reduces the likelihood of spreading both viral and bacterial diseases.
The science has proven time and time again that regular hand washing decreases both respiratory and diarrhoeal diseases. One review found that hand washing alone could reduce cases of diarrhoea by 30 per cent alone because it stops bacteria from being transmitted to the mouth.
More recently, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) conducted a study to find out the most effective mitigation strategy for hand hygiene that could contribute most to the reduction of global epidemic risk, finding that if 60 per cent of airport travellers had clean hands, the spread of global disease could fall by more than 70 per cent.
Hand washing helps to kill coronavirus
CARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes the COVID-19 disease, is known as an “enveloped virus”. This means that it has a protective outer layer known as a lipid bilayer.
The molecules that make up this layer are tadpole-shaped, with a head that’s attracted to water and a tail that repels it. These molecules arrange themselves into a bilayer—two layers piled on top of one another into a sheet where the heads point outwards—and are pulled closely together. The heads of these molecules then stick to your hands and other surfaces, which is perfect for infection purposes.
Soap molecules also have this type of tadpole structure, and this is what makes it so effective at cleaning our hands. Because soap molecules are similar to the molecules that make up the exterior of an enveloped virus like SARS-CoV-2, the molecules in the lipid bilayer of the are as strongly attracted to the soap molecules as each other. This disrupts the ordered shell around the virus, dissolving it and killing the now unprotected virus.
Drying after washing
After thoroughly washing your hands, the last thing that you want to do is immediately get them contaminated again, especially in a washroom area. This is why a good hand dryer like a Dyson Airblade is the perfect accompaniment to any washroom and hand washing routine.
The Dyson’s airflow technology wicks water away from the hands quickly into a basin where it is drained away. This prevents water droplets being blown onto the clothes and around the general hand drying area. Meanwhile, the HEPA filter prevents viruses and bacteria from being blown around the washroom’s atmosphere and the antibacterial plastic kills anything that might work its way onto it, preventing touch transmission.
