Cleaning and Maintenance

  • Humidifiers provide comfort by adding moisture to dry, heated indoor air. To get the most benefit from the humidifier and to avoid product misuse, follow all instructions carefully, specifically the operation, care and maintenance guidelines.
  • Please note this is an electrical appliance and requires attention when in use.
  • Cleaning your humidifier every one or two weeks, depending on the water conditions is important in order to maintain efficient, healthy, odour-free operation. Water quality varies widely and, combined with build-up of mineral scale in your humidifier, may under certain conditions promote the growth of micro-organisms in the water tank.

Before cleaning, please note the following:
  • DO NOT use soap, detergents, abrasives, gasoline, glass or furniture polish, or boiling water to clean any part of your Ultrasonic Humidifier. These will interfere with the proper operation of your unit and may affect its appearance.
  • DO NOT use sharp or metal objects to clean mineral deposits in the reservoir. Contact with sharp objects can result in damage to the plastic.
  • Mineral deposits should be soaked for up to 20 minutes in cleaner solution or in plain vinegar and water to help with their removal.
  • NEVER mix cleaner solution with any other fluid!
  • DO NOT clean any part of your humidifier in the dishwasher.

Daily maintenance:
  • Before cleaning, set the humidity control switch to the Off position and unplug the unit from the electrical outlet.
  • Lift off the tank of the humidifier.
  • Carry the base and the tank to the sink, then drain and rinse the base and tank thoroughly to remove any sediment or dirt. Wipe clean and dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.
  • Refill the tank with cool tap water as instructed in “Operating Instructions”. Do not over fill.
  • If moisture forms on walls or window, turn the humidifier off.
