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.
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.
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.
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.
