What are the precautions for using a humidifier?

2023-10-17

When using the humidifier, it is best to add pure water or boiled and cooled tap water to the humidifier to ensure the aseptic sanitation of the water vapor. Secondly, the humidifier should not be used for a long time, and the air is difficult to circulate. Furthermore, the humidifier needs to be placed in a higher position to meet the fresh air we breathe. Finally, it is important to regularly clean your humidifier to prevent the indoor air quality from being affected by dirt, bacteria, etc.

The climate in autumn and winter is generally drier than usual, and many people will choose to place a humidifier indoors to improve the indoor air humidity.

The first thing to pay attention to is the choice of water in the humidifier. It is best to avoid adding tap water directly to the humidifier. Why can't we add tap water directly to the humidifier? This is because the tap water contains chlorine ions, which will be volatilized into the air along with the water mist. Chlorine gas is a harmful gas, and long-term inhalation will cause harm to the human body.

Therefore, try to boil the tap water and let it cool before using it. This can effectively remove the bacteria and chlorine contained in the tap water, or directly pour pure water or mineral water in a large bottle into the humidifier.

In addition, the water in the humidifier needs to be replaced daily to keep the air clean and hygienic, so don’t add too much water each time to avoid waste.

Secondly, when using a humidifier, pay attention to the time of use, and must not use it continuously for a long time. Since the indoor space is relatively small and the air is not circulated, if the humidifier is turned on for a long time and the doors and windows are kept closed, the indoor environment will become very humid. If the humidity is too high, it will be counterproductive and have a certain impact on the respiratory tract.

Therefore, air humidifier are not recommended for groups with arthritis and respiratory diseases. Generally, when using a humidifier indoors, you should occasionally open the doors and windows for ventilation to allow air to flow.

Furthermore, the placement of the humidifier is also quite particular, and it is generally recommended to place it at a height of about one meter. Whether sitting or standing, the air at this height is more suitable for human breathing. It should be placed in a slightly open position, and it should not be placed in a corner or other place where there is no air circulation, which will cause excessive humidity in the local space. For example, if it is placed against the wall for a long time, a small area of the wall may be damp or even fall off, which will affect the indoor appearance and hygiene.

Finally, the cleaning work of the humidifier is a part that cannot be ignored. Cleaning is not only about cleaning the appearance of the humidifier, but more importantly, the two parts of the inner net and the water tank. The frequent use of the humidifier cannot avoid the accumulation of internal scale and dust, and the humid environment itself is extremely easy to breed mold, and finally circulates into the relatively closed indoor air to be inhaled by the human body. If auxiliary chemicals such as detergents are used in the cleaning process, they must be cleaned repeatedly before use.
