If you use a CPAP machine to sleep soundly at night, you should already know how important it is to clean your mask and equipment.

Over time, dangerous CPAP bacteria can accumulate inside your device. And through the hottest days of summer (both those behind us and ahead), mold, mildew, and other organisms infamously thrive in the season’s moist environments.


Protect Yourself From CPAP Bacteria This Summer — And Beyond

Keeping your CPAP machine clean is critical throughout the year. Mold and mildew, for example, are real problems for CPAP users who aren’t careful about keeping their machines and masks clean. (Did you know it only takes one small droplet of water in your CPAP mask or machine for mildew and mold spores to grow?) In fact, damp and warm environments are proverbial petri dishes for rapid bacterial growth.

CPAP bacteria and mold spores that can grow in your uncleaned device could result in a variety of health problems, including:

  • respiratory conditions, such as asthma
  • infections
  • chronic cough
  • difficulty breathing


How the SoClean Sanitizer Can Help

The SoClean CPAP cleaner and sanitizer is designed to make cleaning your CPAP machine easy and effective; it uses activated oxygen to kill 99% of CPAP germs in the mask, hose, and reservoir.

In one study, a CPAP mask examined after only one night of use showed contamination of sporulating bacteria. With just a single SoClean sanitization cycle, no bacteria remained!

The SoClean CPAP cleaner and sanitizer goes to work on your CPAP without you having to disassemble any hoses or components. You can sanitize it all at once, which saves time and hassle. Additionally, the SoClean system doesn’t utilize any chemicals to eliminate 99% of CPAP viruses, bacteria, germs, and mold.

Taking time to sanitize and disinfect your CPAP is critical during humid, warm summer months, but with the SoClean system, you can keep your CPAP clean and germ-free year-round.

Protect yourself from illnesses and health complications associated with ingesting mold spores and other dangerous bacteria. Just place your CPAP equipment inside the SoClean machine, close the lid, and allow it to work its antibacterial, germicidal magic.
