How to Keep a Humidifier Clean
- Use distilled or demineralized water- this water has a much lower mineral content compared to tap water.
- Change humidifier water often and clean every 3 days- unplug and remove any mineral deposits or film. Clean before and after storage.
- Keep the area around humidifiers dry- turn humidifier down or reduce frequency if areas around it become damp or wet.
- Consider replacing old humidifiers- over time humidifiers build up deposits that are difficult to remove and can grow bacteria.
