Why Cleaning and Disinfecting Your CPAP Equipment Is So Important


You are filthy – absolutely filthy, but hey, it’s not really your fault. Germs – or cooties as you may have called them in third grade – are literally everywhere. In some cases, the inside of your home may be covered in more germs and bacteria than the great outdoors. Things like computer mice and other appliances that we touch every day have been known to have more germs and bacteria than a toilet seat. In fact, some appliances may be upwards of 400 times dirtier than a toilet seat. So, you can imagine what is lurking on your CPAP equipment – most likely nothing that you would like to see with a microscope. This is the reason why it is so important to clean and disinfect your CPAP supplies.

For maximum cleanliness, you want to clean your CPAP mask on a daily basis – your other equipment probably doesn’t need to be cleaned so fervently. It is recommended to use good old soap and water to clean your mask, but it is also a good idea to keep a specialized CPAP mask cleaner on hand.
