Spring cleaning? Just like the need for replacing your furnace filter, the filter on your Positive Airway Pressure device needs to be replaced as well. Spring may also be the time of year for you to replace your mask or mask parts to ensure a good night's sleep.
You may have seen the So Clean® commercials on your TV screen lately. Clients are reminded that this is used for sterilizing. It does not take away the important intial steps of cleaning their humidifier chamber, hose and mask with warm water and mild soap. PAP therapy accessories must also be completely dry prior to using the So Clean®. To meet their needs, some clients choose to purchase their own So Clean®. For a fee, other clients opt to book an appointment to have their PAP system put through Breathe Easy's on-site So Clean®. For more information, please contact us today to see if a So Clean® is right for you.
