How to Get the Best Air Quality with the Venta Airwasher

Minnesota winters can be brutal.  I can’t complain at all about this year, especially with what seems to be an early spring.  That doesn’t mean that we weren’t still feeling the effects of the dry, cold air.  My legs were so dry and itchy, it felt like I could scratch at them until they bled if I wasn’t careful.  Our Venta Airwasher is always in the kids’ room so I hadn’t been using it.  Unfortunately, we had to move our bed out of our room for awhile so it is also in the kids’ room {sounds fun, right?}.  While it is a crowded room right now, it also means that I can enjoy the benefits of the Airwasher.


Venta AromatherapyI realized it had been awhile since I had done anything more than add some water and aromatherapy to it.  I recently received a bottle of Venta Cleaner and Venta Water Treatment complimentary from Venta.  It seemed like a great time to tell you how to best care for your Venta Airwasher.

Venta Cleaner

Our air washer is used every single night in the kids’ bedroom.  While you don’t have to go out of your way to do anything other than add water, there are a few steps to take to help keep it working like it is brand new.  To begin with, once every 6 months or so, you will want to use a bottle of Venta Cleaner.  Fill the lower housing with water as normal and empty the entire contents of the bottle in.  Run on the lowest cycle for 2 hours.  Then drain and rinse with warm water.  If you are storing the Venta Airwasher, you will also want to run a cleaning cycle on it prior to storage.  Water Additive

About every 10-14 days, you will want to add in some of the water treatment additive.  Fill your lower housing as normal, and add in a dose of Water Treatment Additive.  This is a great time to also wipe down the inside of the lower house.  Using the water treatment additive improves the hygiene of the unit as well as improving the evaporation process.  It not only helps to prevent calcium and lime buildup but also helps to keep the water more antibacterial.


That really is all there is to taking care of your Venta Airwasher to keep it running in tip top shape for years to come.  Happy clean air breathing!
