Well, the straightforward answer to this is a Yes, but there's a condition. Your humidifier will only make you sick when:
*You fail to ensure its adequate maintenance
*You keep your humidity levels overly high.
So, to use your humidifier rightly, you'd essentially want to monitor the humidity levels and keep it clean always. Especially when using the ultrasonic cool mist humidifier which has no heating element, there is a considerable tendency for bacteria and mold growth. Hence, proper maintenance can be a vital piece in tackling these.
Generally, experts recommend keeping your humidity level between 30 to 50%. Anything significantly more or lesser than this can make you feel sick. If the humidity is too low, you’ll find yourself battling irritated nasal passages, dry skin, itchy eyes, and other conditions. Conversely, when the humidity is too high, you’ll notice surface condensation and a very stuffy feeling in your home. This condensation also creates an environment that nurtures the growth of dust mites, bacteria, and others.
You can always measure your humidity using a hygrometer. This looks like a thermometer, but instead of temperature, it measures your air moisture content.
Smillon ultrasonic cool mist humidifier has an inbuilt humidistat that can serve as a hygrometer and automatically optimize the humidity levels of your room according to its current demand. In other words, with this product, you won't have to worry about getting sick from too low or too high humidity levels.
To ensure that your humidifier is free from potentially harmful bacterial and mold growth, following this guide can be helpful.
Be intentional about the kind of water you use
Advisably, you should only use demineralized or distilled water for your ultrasonic cool mist humidifier. Tap water has some minerals that tend to facilitate bacterial growth. If you also breathe in these minerals, it can be harmful to your health. So, steer clear of tap water and another mineralized forms as much as possible.
Regardless of the type of humidifier you own, be sure to clean it every three days. Also, ensure that you unplug it before cleaning. If you notice mineral deposits, always remove them as soon as possible using hydrogen peroxide (you’ll find this at any pharmacy near you). Chlorine bleach is another alternative you can leverage.
After cleaning, you should rinse the tank as well to ensure that the chemicals used are not airborne as well.
Change the filter
You should follow your manufacturer's instructions concerning the frequency of changing the filter and apply them accordingly.
Furthermore, as time passes, humidifiers tend to accumulate deposits that you might not be able to remove. If you notice this, then it's time for a change. And the Smillon Ultrasonic cool mist humidifier is one you should be exploring when that time comes knocking.
