Frequently Asked Questions - Airfresh Wash 500

Airfresh Wash 500

1.      Contaminated air is drawn in. Large particles, such as hair, dust and even odours and other smaller particles such as fine dust, are filtered out using the replaceable pre-filter, EPA filter and activated carbon filter
2.      The air is passed into a cleaning drum that rotates in water. This cleans the air, and the smallest particles are trapped in the water
3.      The Airfresh Wash 500 blows the clean air out evenly and, at the same time, the room climate is humidified with the help of Evaporation Technology. In this way, the product is able to provide comfortable and hygienic air purification for your home

There can be various reason for why the humidifier is only working to a limited extent, or even not at all. Before the humidity can be distributed into the room, a part of it will first be absorbed by wallpapers and wood. For this reason, it may take some time before the desired level of humidity is reached. However, it may also be that there is a technical error. Please check that the filter is clean and correctly fitted. In addition, please make sure that the room is not larger than the maximum size specified (for the Hygro 500 this is 50 m² and for the Wash 500 it is 30 m²) and that the room is not being aired too much (close the windows and doors).

The optimal operating time depends on your personal requirements. In general, the longer the device is in operation, the better it cleans and humidifies the air.

Fill the tank with clean water daily. Clean the bottom compartment with warm water and a soft cloth every 10–14 days. Do not leave water in the bottom compartment for extended periods. Water left in the Airfresh Wash 500 can lead to mineral deposits and can create conditions that are conducive to the growth of unwanted micro-organisms.

Ensure the tank lid is screwed down properly.

Daily maintenance: Fill the tank only with clean water.
Every 10–14 days: Clean the casing of the Airfresh Hygro 500 with a slightly damp cloth.
Useful cleaning tips: Use a solution made from water and vinegar, at a ratio of 1:1, or vinegar essence at a ratio of 3:1. Do not use abrasive or corrosive cleaning products.
