How to clean the Breathe Safe
The Breathe Safe requires little maintenance, but still needs to be cleaned from time to time. Depending on your environment, it may need to be cleaned as often as every two weeks.
Dust can collect on the Breathe Safe device, and when this happens, it reduces ion output. The more dust that accumulates underneath the discharge plate, the more the ion production decreases. Dust particles on the plate and needles must be cleaned regularly in order to maintain ion output, and the effectiveness of the machine.
To clear the dust from the Breathe Safe, unplug the unit, flip it over 90 degrees, and use a cotton swab to wipe the underside of the plate and needles. You do not need to remove the top cover for cleaning.
