To be sure that you get the most longevity out of any vaporizer, you should take heed of the proper storage of the device when it is not in use. There are many different types of vaporizers and each comes with its own unique set of concerns for storage, but there are some general tips to keep in mind that apply to most of them.
First of all, the basic concept behind the design of a vaporizer is the fact that it turns ground plant material into a vapor. For this reason, there is an element of dampness involved in the process. This means that the internal parts of a vaporizer become damp. If the vaporizer is not being used and is put away while the internal parts are still damp, the parts may become rusted or mildewed. This can destroy the device or at the very least create undesirable results upon the next use of the vaporizer.
To ensure that the vaporizer contains no dampness before you store it away, there are a few things you can do. Start by disassembling the vaporizer according to the owner’s manual. This does not mean take apart all of the internal workings of the machine but simply pull apart the consumer accessible parts. Wipe down all of the pieces with a dry, lint free cloth. For best results, let the parts sit and allow the remaining vapor to dry. If your time is limited, you may also use a cool hair dryer to finish drying the pieces.
Another thing to keep in mind before storing a vaporizer is the potential for erosion of the vaporizer parts due to residue. Many herbs and herbal extracts such as essential oils can be quite acidic. If these elements are allowed to sit on a surface for an extended period of time, this can result in unnecessary damage to your device and its working parts. To remedy this, use a mild cleaning agent like light soap and water to wash away any residue that may have collected inside and even outside of the vaporizer. Rinse all pieces thoroughly so that no soapy residue is left behind either.
The key to keeping your vaporizer in good condition is to be sure it remains clean and dry, particularly when it is not in use. It is a very simple and quick thing to do that will allow you get years of enjoyment from your device.
