Best Answer

There are typically millions of bacteria on most surfaces.

Faucets can go either way depending on how well they are taken care of. If the people using it are typically dirty, a faucet will collect a larger amount of bacteria and germs because it comes into contact with a lot of people.

If however the faucet is cleaned during and after each use, even if most of those cleanings are merely a thorough rinse, than it will be relatively bacteria free.

It should be noted that most bacteria is harmless, and the human body has a built in immune system that is constantly evolving to combat average every day bacteria.
