This year more than ever, the 20 seconds you spend washing your hands can literally save lives – and it’s all thanks to plumbing

COVID-19 has turned previously innocuous activities into a serious matter of health. From shaking a new acquaintance’s hand to planning indoor gatherings, any actions involving interpersonal interaction have taken on a new importance. At the top of that list is something that everyone does every day – handwashing. Practicing this basic act of hygiene correctly can have a huge impact on public health, which is what National Handwashing Awareness Week highlights. MaintenX International provides top-of-the-line plumbing services to commercial facilities around the country, facilitating handwashing coast-to-coast.

“We are proud to install and maintain the infrastructure that supports sound public health practices,” said MaintenX VP of Development Bill Schaphorst. “This year more than ever, the 20 seconds you spend washing your hands can literally save lives – and it’s all thanks to plumbing.”

CDC guidelines recommend washing your hands for 20 seconds with soap and warm water. Since the pandemic, 90% of Americans report handwashing more frequently, longer, or more thoroughly. COVID has also sparked a surge in installations of touchless bathroom fixtures, as another way to avoid spreading the virus.
