5 THINGS YOU CAN MAKE TOUCHLESS IN YOUR HOME
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the coronavirus can survive on surfaces steel for up to 3 days, and is easily transmitted when people touch infected surfaces. Hence, to prevent the spread of the virus, CDC recommends disinfecting surfaces daily. These include light switches, faucets, refrigerator handles, and toilets’ flush levers – which are touched by almost everyone in your home every day.
Smart light switches
A smart light switch is a great touchless device optimized for energy conservation. There are motion-sensing models that activate your lighting when someone enters the room. An alternative is the touch-free light switch which is activated by a hand wave.
Hands-free toilet models are useful for keeping surfaces germ free. There are many models with enhanced functionalities available on the market for homes, offices, and public spaces like hotels, cinemas, and restaurants.
Today, there are different versions of hands-free kitchen faucets available for people interested in touchless appliances. Each of these faucets have different styles, finishes and price ranges. Some even come with voice control for water volume and temperature.
There are now several brands of refrigerators you can open without handles. Instead, you could use your elbow or knee to open them, and drastically reduce the spread of germs.
If you share a bathroom with your children, you should get a countertop hands-free soap dispenser for each of those spaces. It serves as a great enhancement to your kitchen sink.
There are many other hands-free you could use in your home. You can order a knock-to-open dishwasher that can be operated without using your hands. Handle-free ovens and doors that open without knobs or handles are also useful options to consider in the midst of an infectious disease pandemic.
