Philips sleep apnea therapy equipment cleaning instructions.


It’s important to clean your equipment as specified in your product instructions. Poor maintenance can make your sleep therapy ineffective and damage your equipment.

Important! Never use any type of bleach, alcohol or cleaning solutions that contain conditioners or moisturisers on your mask, nasal pillows or tubes. It can damage them. Use only warm, soapy water.  

Daily cleaning

  • Mask: Remove the mask/nasal pillows from the headgear. Clean with warm, soapy water. Rinse. Air dry.


  • Tubing: Wash in warm soapy water, then rinse and air dry.


  • Humidifier: Empty the humidifier and let it air dry. Change the water in the humidifier. Always use distilled water in the humidifier to avoid mineral deposit build-up.


Weekly cleaning


  • Filter: Clean the grey/black foam filter in your machine with warm soapy water. Rinse. Allow to dry. Reinstall.


  • Headgear: Wash headgear by hand with warm, soapy water. Rinse and let air dry.


  • Machine: Wipe the machine with a soft, damp cloth.
