Nothing is more annoyingly time consuming than routinely cleaning out a CPAP machine. Neglecting to clean them regularly results in mold & bacteria buildup, which can lead to some pretty serious illnesses when you're breathing it in every night.
Cleaning the CPAP machine is pretty simple, but taking it apart, cleaning the pieces, thoroughly rinsing, & rinsing some more, waiting for everything to dry, & putting it back together involves a lot, & takes up valuable time.
I've wanted to buy a cleaner/ sanitizer for a while now, but a decent one cost more than a car payment! So it wasn't happening.
Life with a CPAP has been much easier since I got the Altizure Mini CPAP Cleaner. I get to skip out on all of the tedious details of manually disinfecting, & now all I have to do to clean the machine is: (1). Connect one end of the breathing hose to the CPAP machine using the (included) adapter (2). Connect the other end to the hose to the Mini CPAP Cleaning device (3). Turn it on.
To clean the face mask attachment: (1). Put mask into the nylon bag provided (2). Turn on the cleaning device to run another cycle.
It takes 25 minutes for the device to complete the cleaning cycle, & turns itself off automatically when finished.
Another great thing about this CPAP cleaner is that it has a replaceable HEPA filter - a premium addition that most CPAP cleaners just don't have, & it does a wonderful job.
There's a lingering hint of the ozone smell leftover when it's done cycling, though it's nothing too overwhelming. But if you're sensitive to the smell, just disconnect your hose & run clean air through it for 2-3 minutes until the smell evaporates.
I really appreciate the simplicity & convenience of this little device! "Mini" CPAP Cleaner is not an exaggeration by any means! It's so compact that easily fits inside any kind of bag, backpack, suitcase, or luggage, making it a breeze to travel with.
Altizure's CPAP Cleaner is extremely sophisticated for such an affordable price. It's been amazing for me, I'm so thankful to have it, & I HIGHLY recommend the cleaner to everyone using a CPAP machine.
