What should be paid attention to when using humidifiers in children's room?

In winter, the climate is dry, and the indoor heating and air conditioning are turned on from time to time. The indoor air humidity once dropped to the bottom. In order to prevent the baby's skin from being dry and cracked, or to allow the sick baby to breathe more humid air, many parents will use humidifiers at home.


At present, there are many types of humidifiers on the market, including ultrasonic humidifiers, thermal evaporative humidifiers, and pure humidifiers. However, no matter which type of humidifier, the purpose is to diffuse the water to the air through the form of atomization through the instrument. It should be noted that if you do not use the humidifier correctly, you may "do bad things with good intentions" and your child’s health may become worse. Below we have summarized for you the following four iron rules when using a humidifier for your baby in winter.



Iron Law One: You can't directly add tap water to the humidifier

Many parents take it for granted that tap water can be added to the humidifier. The reason is that it is only used for breathing and not in the stomach. In fact, this idea is wrong. Because tap water contains many kinds of minerals, it will damage the evaporator of the humidifier, and the alkali content will also affect its service life. Second, the chlorine atom in the tap water will be caused by the water. And microorganisms may be blown into the air with water mist and cause pollution. If the tap water has high hardness, the water mist sprayed by the humidifier contains calcium and magnesium ions, which will produce white powder and pollute the indoor air.

Iron Law Two: Air humidity control is 40%-60%

Is the higher the air humidity, the more comfortable the human body feels? The answer is no. If the air humidity is too high, such as more than 90%, it will cause discomfort in the respiratory system and mucous membranes, decrease immunity, and induce children to suffer from influenza, asthma, bronchitis and other diseases. However, the air humidity is too low, such as less than 20%, the indoor inhalable particulates increase, and it is easy to catch a cold.


It is generally recommended that the indoor air humidity be maintained at 40%-60%, and the human body feels good. For households who use humidifiers for a long time, it is best to configure a hygrometer to keep the indoor humidity within a certain range.



Iron Law Three: The humidifier should be changed and cleaned frequently

Some parents patronize the use of humidifiers, but neglect to clean them. The humidifiers that are not cleaned regularly will produce mold and other microorganisms. Buying these microorganisms will diffuse into the air with the mist, and then enter the children's respiratory tract, which can easily cause respiratory diseases and even cause "humidification pneumonia." It is generally recommended that the humidifier water should be changed every day, and it is best to clean the humidifier once a week.



Iron Law Four: Humidifiers cannot be used all day

In order to make the baby more comfortable, some families turn on the air conditioner 24 hours a day and the humidifier runs all day long. In fact, this is not good for health. If it is operated all day, it means that it cannot be cleaned up, and the air may be full of mold as mentioned above, which can cause humidifying pneumonia. Secondly, the air will become worse after the door is closed all day, and harmful substances will not disperse. Its easier to get sick anyway.
