I clean my nose pad/mask (soft pillow cover) every day as I use a humidifer on mine & I have to use vicks or I simply can not manage to use the machine. My machine has a warning light to change the filter, which is a smal square pad, very easy to maintain & I'm sure the hoses would whistle if they had a leak. I have enough trouble to sleep without something ♪♫ whistling a terrible tune♪♫. I've been using the machine for going on 2 years now and I'm still experiencing problems. I changed masks twice. Both times though, I have managed to have nice soft pillow types that do not completely cover the complete face. Your schedule was very thorough. I only use distilled water, that way it cuts down on hard water build up & damage to these sensitive machines. I also use melaluca products for cleaning. Thank you. Sincerely, Megs20111
Time to wash and change filters, do a thorough equipment check and cleansing and order replacement parts.
Cleaning checklist: DAILY: Wash all pieces of mask with soap and water and rinse out hose. Change water in humidifier. WEEKLY: Scour humidifier tank, wash hose with soapy water, check filters MONTHLY: Wipe down machine, change and wash filters
Equipment checklist FILTERS: Are they changed, do you need to order more HUMIDIFIER TANK: Is it scoured and smelling fresh? Do you need to buy more distilled water? MASK: Is it washed, does any part need replacing. HOSE: Are there any air leaks? Have you run soap, mouth wash or other approved cleanser through it? HEAD GEAR: Ignore completely unless it just smells too icky. The less washing the longer the velcro lasts. Have straps lost their spring? Are you waking up with kitty whiskers? It may be time for a new head strap CPAP MACHINE: Wipe down and use dry paint brush to get dirt and dust out of crevices. The paint brush works well on computer keyboards too. ELECTRICAL CORDS: Always a good safety idea to check these if they are tucked out of sight. Who knows what the cat has been doing. OTHER: Do you need a chin strap to keep your mouth closed or cloth liners to protect your skin? MORE OTHER: Do you need to purchase approved disposable wet cloths in case you need to do a quick cleaning and are just too tired to find a sink and soap. ANYTHING ELSE???
