Why my Rainbow smell bad?
Does your rainbow stink when you use it? Are you wondering…why my rainbow small bad? After all, it supposes to clean and make my home healthier. Well, the Rainbow also need a minimum care after each use.
This is why your Rainbow smell bad
If you clean and then left the Rainbow with dirty water for a long time, chances are that your machine got a bad smell next time you use it. That happens because the smell of stagnated dirty water for a long time goes inside the rainbow and impregnates in the HEPA filter. In order to remove this bad smell, you’ll need to remove, clean and reinstall your HEPA filter.
It is also highly recommended to pour a cap of the Rainbow concentrate Fresh Air solution into the Rainbow water basin. Fill with water as always and let the Rainbow running for 10 minutes.
Cleaning the HEPA filter
Rexair recommend checking your HEPA filter for dirtiness every two years.
HEPA filter gets dirty if you use your Rainbow without water, low level of water or if you use it for a longer period with the same water. Do not allow the water to get too moody or solid. The water needs to be in liquid form in order to trap the dust.
