Nebulizers

How To Properly Clean And Care For Your Nebulizer

By Chass Armstrong

When you have a nebulizer, proper cleaning and care can go a long way. This is true not only for your health, but also for the care of the nebulizer itself.

By cleaning your nebulizer you can prevent the buildup of bacteria and germs which would cause your machine to be causing you to get sick instead of preventing you from getting asthma.

Along with this, keeping your machine clean and in good shape can help to keep it working properly for longer therefore saving you money in the long run. Here are some tips for cleaning your Nebulizer after you use it and how to clean it weekly as well.

After usage:

  • Rinse Mask and Elbow after use and dry
  • Put them back together with the machine
  • Run your machine for 15-20 seconds to insure everything is dry

Weekly cleaning:

  • Disassemble your machine
  • Wash the mouthpiece and elbow with warm water and mild dishwashing soap
  • Clean the exterior of your Nebulizer machine, but never soak it
  • Run the Machine to make sure everything is completely dry
  • Store in a cool dry spot within its box
