Will an air humidifier kill bacteria?
Air humidifiers do many things and have many benefits, but there is no solid scientific proof that an air humidifier will actually kill bacteria. What they can do is break up the particles of bacteria and viruses that pollute the air in a room where someone who is sick coughs. When these particles are broken up they won’t spend as much time in your home. Air humidifiers also provide other benefits to keep you from becoming sick, like opening up your sinuses and ridding your home of pollen and pet dander.
Air humidifiers work by heating water to produce a steady stream of steam that increases the humidity in the area where it’s placed. Air humidifiers come in all shapes and sizes so that they can be put in any area of your home or office. Larger ones can clean the air of a large living room or master bedroom, while others are designed specifically for small places like your desk.
