CARE AND CLEANING
Humidifiers provide comfort by adding moisture
to dry, heated indoor air. To get the most benefit
from the humidifier and to avoid product misuse,
follow all instructions carefully, specifically the
operation, care and maintenance guidelines.
Please note this is an electrical appliance and
requires attention when in use.
Cleaning your humidifier every one or two
weeks, depending on the water conditions is
important in order to maintain efficient, healthy,
odour-free operation. Water quality varies
widely and, combined with build-up of mineral
scale in your humidifier, may under certain
conditions promote the growth of micro-organisms
in the water tank.
Before cleaning, Please note the
following:
• DO NOT use soap, detergents, abrasives,
gasoline, glass or furniture polish, or boiling
water to clean any part of your Ultrasonic
Humidifier. These will interfere with the
proper operation of your unit and may affect
its appearance.
• DO NOT use sharp or metal objects to clean
mineral deposits in the reservoir. Contact
with sharp objects can result in damage to
the plastic.
•
Mineral deposits should be soaked for up to
20 minutes in Bionaire® "Clean-Away"
solution or in plain vinegar and water to help
with their removal.
• NEVER mix "Clean-Away" solution with any
other fluid!
• DO NOT clean any part of your humidifier in
the dishwasher.
Daily maintenance:
1. Before cleaning, set the humidity control
switch to the Off position (
) and unplug
the unit from the electrical outlet.
2. Lift off the tank of the humidifier.
3. Carry the base and the tank to the sink, then
drain and rinse the base and tank thoroughly
to remove any sediment or dirt. Wipe clean
and dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.
4. Refill the tank with cool tap water as
instructed in “Operating Instructions”. Do not
over fill.
5. If moisture forms on walls or window, turn
the humidifier off.
STORAGE TIPS
If you do not plan to use your unit for an
extended period of time, (i.e. during the summer
months), it is important that you follow these
instructions to help prevent stagnation of water
in the unit.
1. Turn the unit off and disconnect from the
outlet. Remove the water tank, then empty
the tank and the base completely. Clean the
humidifier as instructed in the cleaning
instruction section.
2. Dry the unit thoroughly. DO NOT leave any
water in the unit when storing.
3. Pack the humidifier in its original carton and
store in a cool, dry place.
