Have you ever wondered about the different types of humidifiers and how these might work for your needs? It’s not always easy to work out which approach might be right for your needs, but this shouldn’t have to stop you from getting the ideal solutions. Luckily, our experts have outlined some of the key things you should know about cleaning your humidifier to help.

Which Type of Humidifier Requires the Least Cleaning?

In many cases, it’s easy to overlook how much cleaning your new humidifier will need. After all, many people fail to realize that their humidifier will need cleaning! Nevertheless, this is a highly important point to remember, so we’ve outlined the cleaning requirements for each humidifier type.

Evaporative and Ultrasonic Humidifiers

If you have been looking for a high-quality humidifier device, starting with a cool mist option can help. These include evaporative and ultrasonic humidifiers.

Evaporative humidifiers work by blowing air from the room across a damp wick, which helps encourage greater evaporation into the environment. In turn, this can successfully humidify your property, reducing the feeling of dryness on the air.

Of course, this isn’t the only option; ultrasonic humidifiers can also be exceptionally effective. These instead utilize a rapidly moving plate to help propel microscopic particles into the air, further helping cool your property.

While cleaning your cool mist evaporative and ultrasonic humidifiers is still hugely important, the frequency of doing so may be less often. As such, if you need a low-maintenance option, these could be the ideal opportunities to consider. However, it’s worth keeping in mind that cool mist humidifiers of these types may reduce the temperature in the property (or make it feel cooler), which isn’t necessarily ideal for properties in colder climates.


Warm Mist Humidifiers

If you have been looking for a humidifier that needs less cleaning, warm mist humidifiers might not be an ideal option to consider. Indeed, warm mist humidifiers, despite being incredibly popular options, can be prone to harboring bacteria and other such nasties. This is because the warm, damp environment offers the ideal opportunity for bacteria to grow and reproduce, potentially risking your humidifier.

Luckily, high-quality humidifiers, such as our range here at Smillon, can help overcome this challenge. Indeed, our professional humidifier devices are designed with quality in mind, making it easier for you to manage your device and prevent issues from arising.

How to Clean Your Humidifier

No matter which humidifier you go for, you’ll still need to clean it regularly. Luckily, cleaning your humidifier is actually surprisingly easy. In many cases, the easiest way to go about this is to unplug and disassemble the device, then empty and clean the water tank and any removable parts. In some cases, you may also need to descale the unit.
