How to Prevent Germs to Grow in Your CPAP Equipment?
We wrote before about the necessity of sanitizing your CPAP equipment; whether you are a new or experienced CPAP user, one of the main things you know is probably that you have to keep your equipment clean and sanitized. Germs love moist warm places and grow much faster in such environment. Your face mask or hose is an ideal breeding ground for germs…warm, moist air you are exhaling (or from a heated hose and humidifier). That is why sanitizing those parts of your CPAP equipment should be a daily activity.
Cleaning and sanitizing can be done in two ways: manually or automatically. Now, manual cleaning is a hustle…it takes 15-30 minutes of your time (if you want to do it properly), and then after washing and sanitizing you must make sure it is fully dried…it takes your time and it's a hustle (it can be somewhat faster and safer if you decide to use CPAP Cleaning Supplies such as wet wipes or similar). Automatic sanitizing using a CPAP Cleaning Machine, on the other hand, is a quick and simple way of handling that task; all you need to do is to put your CPAP equipment into sanitizing bag (container) and click the button to start the process. With Ozone CPAP Cleaner this process is (automatically) done in around 30 minutes. If you feel doubtful that there is a better way than manual cleaning, no need to doubt or worry, ozone sanitizer is extremely efficient! PrimeClean® CPAP Cleaner will kill 99.9% of germs within those 30 minutes…you won’t hear it work, you won’t feel anything, no heat, no unpleasant smell, it’s a dry process so after it’s finished no need to do anything.
