    How to Clean a Dehumidifier?

    While dehumidifiers are busy sucking moisture out of the air, they are also collecting all kinds of nasty things like mold and bacteria. Regular cleaning is an important part of its maintenance, especially during periods of heavy use. Follow these steps to make sure your dehumidifier is clean, which will help it run optimally and keep the air you breathe as healthy as possible. This article will introduce the cleaning steps of the dehumidifier in detail.

    how to clean a dehumidifier

    1. Unplug your dehumidifier. Turning off the air dehumidifier and unplug it. This ensures that cleaning of the dehumidifier is safe, whether you just do a quick wipe or spend more time rinsing the tub, filter, and other separate parts.
    2. Wipe the outside. Your dehumidifier does a lot of work to remove potentially harmful substances from the air. Its enclosure is the first line of defense between the dehumidifier's internal components and the muggy air it's trying to collect. So, after you turn off the dehumidifier, wipe off any buildup with a dry cloth. If it's particularly dirty, you can wet the cloth, but don't spray it directly with water or any cleaning solvent.
    3. Clean out the reservoir. All moisture from the air will end up in the portable dehumidifier bucket (unless you pump the water directly into a separate drain). This means it gets dirty quickly and needs to be cleaned about every three weeks during heavy use. Add liquid soap and water to the bucket. Then gently scrub and rinse. Wait until the bucket is dry before putting it back in.
    4. Rinse the air filter. Your air filter is the workhorse of your 250 pint dehumidifier. While the bucket collects water, the air filter picks up dirt, mold, and other impurities from the air. Remove the filter and wash it gently with a sponge and soapy water. Wait for it to dry completely before reinstalling.
    5. Vacuum. If you want to do it more thoroughly, you can use a vacuum cleaner or brush to remove any remaining grime.
    6. Remove and clean the bucket filter. A barrel filter can help filter out impurities from your home dehumidifier. It is much smaller than the main air filter, about the size of a thimble, and is usually hidden somewhere in the reservoir. Remove the bucket filter and rinse with lukewarm water. Wait for it to dry completely before returning it.
