AUTOMATIC SOAP DISPENSER EXPLAINED
AUTOMATIC SOAP DISPENSER
On wall Automatic soap dispensers release a pre-measured amount of hand soap. They have infrared sensors that detect the presence of hands so users don't have to touch the unit to get soap. These dispensers mount on a wall to free up counter and floor space in bathrooms, kitchen areas and break rooms.
How automatic soap dispensers work
What does disinfecting mean?
An automatic soap dispenser is a device that dispenses a controlled amount of soap solution (or a similar liquid such as a hand sanitizer). They are often used in conjunction with automatic faucets in public restrooms. They function to conserve the amount of soap used and stem infectious disease transmission.
What is the difference between sanitizing and disinfecting?
Sanitizing is considered mild when compared to disinfecting and used most of the time to clean things that are in human contact. Whereas disinfectants are concentrated and used to clean surfaces like floors and building premises. Disinfecting kills more germs than sanitizing. Disinfectants are frequently used in hospitals, dental surgeries, kitchens, and bathrooms to kill infectious organisms. You can learn more abot sanitizing your home from the CDC here.
What is the difference between disinfecting and sterilizing?
Disinfecting is less effective than sterilization, which is an extreme physical or chemical process that kills all types of life. Sterilization is the complete destruction of all microscopic life on a surface. Hospitals use sterilization on surgical tools. Chemical sterilization is too hazardous is too hazardous for public use but their are "autoclaves" which is pressurized steam sterilization. Medical offices, dental offices and salons are some facilities that use autoclaves for utensils that come in contact with the human body. Larger areas like table tops or foot spas do not fit into an autoclave and need to be disinfected instead. You can learn more from the CDC Here.
What is fungi?
Fungi is a larger more complex multicellular organism that comes in many different shapes. Fungi can reproduce both sexually and asexually. In the form of yeast, mold, or mildew, Fungi are found just about anywhere, including in water, plants trees and water. Some types live on human skin. Fungi thrive in cool moist areas like basements and between walls, especially near water sources. We recommend using a disinfectant spray like Victoria Bay, Clorox with bleach or Lysol all purpose cleaner. You can learn more about fungi from the CDC Here.
What is bacteria?
Bacteria is the oldest single cell organisms to date which come in three distinct shapes (round, spiral and rod shape) and smaller in size than fungi. Bacteria does not need a host to grow and do not reproduce, instead one bacteria splits into two bacteria. Bacteria can live in almost every imaginable environment, including in or on the human body. But only a few different bacteria can cause infections in humans. These bacteria are referred to as pathogenic bacteria. Vega disinfectant wipes kill bacteria. You can also use a disinfectant spray like Victoria Bay, Clorox with bleach or Lysol all purpose cleaner. You can learn more from the CDC about bacteria here.
What is a virus?
Viruses are similar to bacteria, they are very diverse single cell microorganism In size viruses are even smaller than bacteria. Unlike bacteria, viruses are parasitic and need tissue or living cells to grow. This means they can infiltrate the cells of your body and use them to grow and multiply. Viruses also kill the hosts cells as part of their life cycle. You can learn more about viruses from the CDC Here.
What is antibacterial?
Antibacterials are used on the skin to combat bacteria (not viruses) on the outside of the body. They are common in soaps and alcohol sprays. Saliva is antibacterial which is why mouth wounds heal quickly. Antibacterial soap is the best soap to use before surgeries and medical procedures.
What are antiseptics?
Antiseptics are also used on your skin and contain microorganisms that work to prevent viruses, bacteria and fungi from developing outside your body.Antiseptics are normally used in hospitals and other medical settings to reduce the risk of infection during surgery and other procedures.
What are antibiotics?
Antibiotics are used inside the body and have no effect against viruses. Antibiotics are used to fight internal infections will not help prevent or treat viruses (COVID-19)
