The Correct Use of the Humidifier
3. It is not recommended to humidify with tap water
The tap water contains many kinds of minerals. During the heating process, it will cause damage to the evaporator of the humidifier, and the contained water and alkali will also affect its service life.
If the tap water has high hardness, the water mist sprayed by the humidifier contains calcium and magnesium ions, which will produce white powder and pollute the indoor air.
It is recommended to use cold or purified water for humidification.
4. Use air humidifier with caution in patients with arthritis
Humid air can aggravate the condition of arthritis, so it is best not to use this type of patients.
If such patients do need to use a humidifier to reduce the occurrence of some respiratory complications, at least they should consult with a specialist to determine the appropriate humidity to stabilize the original disease.
