How to Clean a CPAP Machine

People often ask us, “What is the best way to clean or disinfect my CPAP machine and supplies?”. The answer is that you have some options.

Option 1:

Cleaning your CPAP and supplies can be done manually. A mixture of vinegar and water is a great way to sterilize and clean the CPAP equipment without subjecting yourself to harmful chemicals. You can also substitute that with a light soap. To do this effectively, you need to submerge the mask, tubing, and humidifier chamber into the solution. Scrub, rinse and dry.

Option 2:

The automation of cleaning and disinfecting your CPAP is now a reality. The Soclean and the VirtuClean have proven to be 99.99% effective at killing bacteria, mold, and mildew. Both options allow you to drop you equipment in a container and let the Cleaning Machine do the rest. Then when you return the Equipment is ready for use. To use the old infomercial adage….”Set It and Forget It!!”. 🙂
Overall it is very important to keep up with the cleaning and disinfecting of your CPAP Equipment, because quite frankly, it can make you sick if you don’t. Check out the automated options below or visit our CPAP Cleaning Section. As always feel free to call, email, or chat us with any questions you might have. We are happy to help.
