A few months ago I shared about the Venta Airwasher and how much it has truly changed our family’s lives. Then, I shared their line of aromatherapy made exclusively for the Venta Airwasher and how much we loved the different scents and benefits of pure essential oils. Now, I am excited to share about two products that are essential to keeping our Venta Airwasher clean and running smoothly. These 2 products are the Water Treatment Additive and Venta Airwasher cleaner.
Spring is in full force here in Southern Maryland and I sure all over the place. Our family loves the warmer weather, the colorful flowers and the chirping birds. One thing that our entire family suffers with is allergies and from what I’ve read, pollen is the highest this year than it has been recently. Our family sure can tell so we’ve been running our Venta Airwasher pretty much constantly in our master bedroom and know that it helps us all to sleep better at night. Since it is running constantly, we are excited to share two products from Venta that help our Airwasher run smoothly and effectively. While this unit is pretty much low maintenance, it does require a quick cleaning and refilling of water sometimes. Since we love this Airwasher so much, I want to keep it in tip-top shape!
The Venta Cleaner has been specifically formulated for the thorough cleaning of our Airwashers. The Venta Cleaner should also be used before the storage of the device to ensure that all residues are removed. The bottle is 8 fl. oz. which is sufficient for one cleaning. The recommended usage is once ever 6 months.
The Venta Water Treatment Additive (WTA) is designed for the Venta Airwasher models to maintain hygienic conditions in the lower housing and to improve the evaporation process. It creates a sheeting action on the disks with the effect of maximizing the amount of surface area. It helps prevent calcium and lime build-up and helps to keep the water more anti-bacterial. Important: the ingredients of the Venta Water Treatment Additive do not evaporate. They remain in the unit back until poured out for cleaning (approximately every 10 to 14 days). Only fresh water should be added daily – this reactivates the contents of the Venta Water Treatment Additive. One bottle is sufficient for approximately one season (5 months). Contains 35 fl. oz (sufficient for approx. 5 months months). Recommended usage: one dose every 10-14 days.
We decided to clean our Venta Airwasher and to try the Water Treatment Additive in our Airwasher. I am VERY happy to say that while our Airwasher didn’t seem ‘dirty’ or like it needed cleaning, it sure did feel good to clean it out and have it fresh for the busy season ahead. To clean the Airwasher I simply filled the lower housing with water and added the entire bottle of cleaner. Then, I ran the unit on low for about 2 hours. Then, I drained and rinsed it with warm water – SUPER easy and effective!
We also added in some of the Water Treatment Additive when we filled our unit the last time. This is a much bigger bottle and offers us the ability to make it all season with this bottle of additive. This additive does not have a smell and doesn’t make a smell when the unit is running. To use this, I simply filled the lower housing with water like I do daily, and then added a dose of this Water Treatment Additive to it and let the unit run. I only add this in between 10-14 days, not every day. To determine the dose of this water treatment additive the bottle has black markings on it to show you how much solution to add.
Both of these products will help keep my Venta Airwasher unit running smoothly and effectively this Spring and Summer season. I am extremely pleased with the Venta Airwasher and hope that you’ve learned a lot about it too! Stay tuned for more Venta Airwasher posts on This N That with Olivia.
