Cleaning your CPAP or PAP device is important in making sure the device functions properly. Mold and pathogens grow in a warm moist environment so cleaning and drying your CPAP equipment is important to reduce the risk of getting sick.
Daily cleaning: Wipe down your mask (all areas that come in contact with your skin) with a damp cloth and mild detergent and warm water. This removes the oils and skin debris that will maintain the quality of the seal. CPAP cleaning wipes are quick and easy way to do this. They are designed not harm the materials of the mask or cushion. These are available at Guardian Home Care Services.
The easiest and most efficient way to keep you CPAP equipment clean is to use the SoClean CPAP Cleaner and Sanitizer. It outranks everything on the market. SoClean effectively kills 99.9% of the germs on the mask, tubing and reservoir without the use of chemicals or even water. Your CPAP equipment stays dry the whole time. SoClean machines are also available for purchase at Guardian Home Care Services. The TV advertised price is $299, but Guardian sells them for $279.
