Humidifiers provide a lot of great benefits for a home during the winter. It can help to improve the air quality of the house, prevent dry skin, relieve cold symptoms, and reduce static electricity. It’s a great addition to any room you sleep in that suffers from drier air in the colder months of the year. If you are frequently waking up with a scratchy throat or dry lips, you may want to consider getting a humidifier.
However, a humidifier does not come without its own required maintenance. If you do not properly clean it on a consistent enough basis it can grow bacteria and mold, which can actually end up making you sick. You should get in the habit of cleaning and disinfecting your humidifier about once a week.
