It's important to clean your equipment as specified in your product instructions. Poor maintenance can make your sleep therapy ineffective and damage your equipment. If your equipment is not properly cleaned and dried, bacteria builds up and can lead to infections in your body, especially in your airway passages.
Wash your face before applying the mask or pillows (interface); oils in your skin can cause premature breakdown in the materials used to manufacture your interface.
IMPORTANT! Never use any type of alcohol or other caustic household cleaning solutions such as bleach on your mask, nasal pillows or tubes. It can damage them. Use only warm, soapy water. Use a mild detergent void of lotion, perfumes or dyes.
