Cleaning can help to avoid potential dangers and problems, including the following:
Possible increased risk for sinus infections or pneumonia
Musty or foul odor
Mineralization within the equipment
Premature equipment breakdown
Voiding the device warranty
If cleaning is so important, how should it be done? Fortunately, it can be accomplished relatively easily at little expense.
Cleaning your CPAP doesn’t have to be complicated, you simply press the only button on the device, and cpapall does the rest. No disassembly. No water. No chemicals. Just simple, automated cleaning.
Step 1: Clean your mask and hose.
1) Plug your hose with the mask attached into M1, put the mask inside the sanitizing bag, and zip the bag.
2) Turn on.
Step 2: Clean your machine and humidifier.
4) Take the mask and hose out of the bag.
5) If you have a humidifier, dump out any water.
6) Reconnect the hose to the humidifier (which is attached to your CPAP machine) or if you do not have a humidifier, reconnect the hose to the machine. Turn on Cpapall M1.
