Humidifier hints for mold

We’ve talked about the dangers of using humidifiers in the home because they can cause mold growth. We’ve also acknowledged that they can also have benefits too. There are some tips on this page for getting the benefits while avoiding the hazards.

  • Make sure you need a humidifier. If you get a lot of condensation that lasts for a while, your home doesn’t need any more moisture.
  • Use distilled water if possible to avoid releasing water-borne pollutants into the air.
  • Clean the humidifier once a month with hydrogen peroxide to kill microorganisms in it.
  • Choose steam or warm mist over cool mist or ultrasonic humidifiers.
