2020-06-23
1. If it is not cleaned well, the humidifier will become a bacteria sprayer

The water in the humidifier is not living water, and the indoor temperature is just so easy for the microorganisms in the water to multiply. If it is not replaced in time, the bacterial legion will become a spray of water and enter our respiratory tract together. In addition, if the humidifier is not cleaned for a long time, fungi or bacteria will grow on the inner wall, and some of the pathogenic bacteria will also be mixed into the water mist.

Therefore, the water in the humidifier must be replaced every day (dump the remaining water and replace it with new ones), and the humidifier must be thoroughly cleaned at least once a week. If not used for a long time, the water in the water tank should be drained and the parts of the humidifier should be dried.



2. Randomly add essential oil, disinfectant, Radix isatidis, etc.

Many people like to add fungicides, vinegar, isatis root, essential oils, etc. in the water, hoping that the humidifier can sterilize, prevent diseases, and help sleep. This method is no longer invalid, but harmful! Although these drugs or essential oils are not taken or used on the skin, if they are absorbed into the bronchial tubes and lungs, there may be consequences.



3. Don't let the humidifier work all the time, you have to rest for 2 hours

As mentioned earlier, excessive air humidity is not conducive to health. If it exceeds 90%, it will cause poor respiratory system and mucous membranes, reduced immunity, and will cause children to suffer from flu, bronchitis and other diseases. It is recommended to stop for a period of time after every 2 hours, and open windows to allow indoor air to circulate.



4. Put the humidifier 1.5 meters above the ground, the effect is better

The humidifier should be placed on a stable surface at a height of about 1.5 meters from the ground, so that the moisture can just linger within the body's range of motion to ensure the humidification effect. In addition, the humidity of the humidifier is about 1 meter, so it is best to place it away from TVs and other home appliances and furniture to prevent moisture.
