Benefits of Humidifiers Crystal Lake

Humidifiers are very beneficial when used correctly during the summer and winter. Humidifiers can help improve your overall health, alleviate allergies during the summer, and help fight bacteria and viruses that spread fast during the long winter months. Below are helpful health benefits humidifiers have:

  4. Improves sleep- a humidifier helps reduce snoring, which will help give you a better night of sleep.
  5. Helps allergies- during the summer pollen is all over. A humidifier can help alleviate allergies and help your breathing.
  6. Shortens sickness- humidifiers keep the nose and throat moist during cold months.

Wrong ways to use a humidifier:

Using a humidifier wrong can be worse than not using one at all. If you do not take care of your humidifier or clean the filter when you are supposed to, you might be pushing out mold and bacteria into your air. Here are some of the effects that can happen if you do not clean your humidifier:

  • Wrong type of water- if you use tap water vs purified water, minerals from the water will create a white film in your humidifier and have to be cleaned more often.
  • Dirty filter- not cleaning the filters can cause mold, mildew and bacteria to grow inside your humidifier, which get pushed into your home.
  • Wrong humidity levels- if moisture levels get to high, it can cause allergies to worsen.
  • Sitting water- letting the water sit in the machine for days in between uses can cause bacteria to form in the humidifier. If bacteria starts to form you should clean it right away.

Health Humidity Tips:

  1. Hydrate- Drink lots of water to keep your skin and mouth hydrated during the day.
  2. Seal your home- make sure your home is sealed tight in order to keep out any drafts so you don’t have to keep turning the heat up, causing more dry air.
  3. Moisturize- put lotion on your skin everyday during the winter and after every shower you take. Putting on lotion after you shower can help keep the moisture in your skin.
  4. Warm showers- the heat and steam from long hot showers cause your skin to become dry. Taking shorter and warm (not hot) showers can help keep your skin moist.
