Time for Spring Cleaning

Spring is here, and you’re probably already busy doing some spring cleaning around your house. But are you taking the time to clean your portable oxygen concentrator as well? Regularly cleaning your portable oxygen concentrator helps to keep it running at its’ optimum performance level, and can extend the life of the unit.  Hopefully this something you already do, but if it isn’t now is the perfect time to start.  Air filters in particular need regular maintenance the most. Here are some tips from Open-Aire on how to keep your unit’s air filter clean, and that will help your portable oxygen concentrator run without problems.

Maintenance Tips – Air Filter
  • Clean the Air Filter in your portable oxygen concentrator at least once a week.
  • If your device has a micro filter, clean it with warm water.  Allow it to dry before replacing it.
  • For devices without a removable filter, use a dry cotton swap or soft brush to remove debris from inlet vents.
