In cold weather, windows and even some walls may fog or develop frost from excessive indoor humidity. If this occurs, reduce the mist output setting to avoid damage from condensed water dripping onto windowsills. Too much humidity in the room may allow moisture to accumulate on surfaces where bacteria and fungi can grow. Moisture that gathers may also damage furniture and walls, especially wallpaper. To reduce excessive humidity, especially in small rooms, leave the room door open and adjust the mist intensity control setting. MAINTENANCE It is important to keep ultrasonic cool mist humidifiers clean. Cleaning and disinfecting on a regular basis is important for maintaining the performance of your humidifier IMPORTANT DO NOT leave water in Water Tank or Water Basin when unit is not in use as it may result in the buildup of mineral deposits and bacteria that can inhibit the output efficiency of the humidifier. If water remains in the Water Tank for more than a day or two, bacterial growth is possible. DAILY MAINTENANCE 1. 2. 3. 4. Always turn off and unplug from outlet before cleaning.
