Reducing cross-contamination is common sense: eliminate the amount of surfaces a building occupant touches will reduce the spread of bacteria and infection. The growing popularity of touch-free products has helped achieve this method of prevention.

Touch-free restroom products are now available on urinals, toilets, sinks, soap dispensers, hand dryers, paper dispensers and even doors. Incorporating these products reduces the possibility of patrons coming into contact with potentially harmful microorganisms and spreading them throughout the facility.

In addition to the health benefits, when properly maintained, these products can result in financial savings for facilities. Flush valves and faucets control water usage, while soap and paper dispensers regulate product usage.
