Here are some common signs your CPAP is in need of a cleaning.
1. Feeling Under the Weather
While not every illness stems from a dirty CPAP, a lingering cold or if you notice your sinuses are bothering you more than usual, it could be that you're breathing in germs from your dirty CPAP equipment.
2. A Musty or Moldy Odor
When you put on your CPAP mask, do you smell something musty or moldy? This is a sure sign your CPAP needs a thorough clean. Odor can indicate that there could be mildew or mold living in your CPAP equipment since they thrive in moist, warm environments, like your CPAP tubing.
3. Skin IrritationWhen you place your CPAP mask on your face, it can pick-up everyday dirt and oils from your skin. If you aren't diligent about cleaning your CPAP it can continue to build up on your mask which can lead to skin irritation. Sleep8 CPAP cleaner and sanitizer makes CPAP cleaner so quick and simple that you can easily clean your CPAP equipment every day!
