Frequently Asked Questions?
How do portable/mobile hand wash stations work?
Mobile hand washing systems make hand hygiene accessible at any time, in any location. By placing portable units, such as the Smixin mobile hand wash system, in any busy place, people can wash their hands without visiting over-crowded or unhygienic washrooms and reduce their reliance on sanitizers. They dispense water, soap and a paper towel, in measured amounts that drastically reduce waste and promote environmental efficiencies.
What is the hand washing process?
Washing our hands with soap and water is the most effective way to maintain hand hygiene. When done properly, it removes dirt and stops the spread of bacteria and infections. Mobile hand washing systems are completely touchless units, that provide a mix of water and soap when hands are placed below a sensor. A paper towel is then dispensed, with the whole process taking less than 15 seconds.
What are the three types of hand washing?
There are three main types of hand washing: antiseptic, surgical, and social. Antiseptic and surgical handwashing are more stringent forms of hand hygiene and involve the use of chemicals to remove microorganisms, usually within a healthcare setting. Social handwashing is done every day to remove dirt and bacteria from our hands, and to stop the spread of infection. Its what we should all do after visiting the washroom, following physical contact, and before we eat. Mobile hand washing systems ensure that the public can hygienically clean their hands with soap and water, whenever and wherever they need to.
