CPAP Mask Cleaning

CPAP Mask Cleaning is very important for the care and longevity of your device. Please refer to the following videos and see what necessary measures you need to take in order to keep your medical equipment in better shape.

Cleaning

You may not realize it, but over time your skin releases facial oils that can reduce the quality and performance of your seal and mask. So after wearing your mask, clean your mask thoroughly to remove any facial oils.

Clean the cushion of your mask every morning, after using it at night. That way, you will have a clean, dry mask ready to use for your next treatment. CPAP Mask Cleaning will also remove facial oils to optimize your mask’s seal.

To clean your mask, hand wash each day with mild soap. Avoid harsh cleaning products, which may damage the mask, or leave harmful residue. Allow drying away from direct sunlight.

For more information on how to clean and care for your mask, please refer to your mask User Guide.

Device care

To be able to deliver consistent, high-quality treatment, your device needs to be well maintained. A blocked air filter may impact on the pressure delivered to you. It’s important to regularly examine the air filter for holes or dust build-up. Refer to your user guide for specific recommendations on how often you should maintain your device.

Humidifier care

Maintaining your humidifier is important in order to achieve effective treatment and prevent the buildup of deposits.

After each use, we recommend that the water tub should be washed out with a mild detergent and warm water. Then it should be thoroughly rinsed and dried, away from direct sunlight. The tub should also be checked once a month for wear and deterioration. If any component has cracked or become cloudy or pitted, the tub should be replaced.
