Like a lot of other things, vaporizers aren’t exactly immune to dirt and grime. In fact, they can get quite dirty. This is because vaporizers experience condensation. Every time you vape, the warm vapor comes in contact with the cooler components which results in the condensation of the vapor you’re inhaling.
Once the vapor condenses, it leaves behind a sticky residue that, if not cleaned, can cause your vaporizer to malfunction.
You also have to consider other issues like dust and microscopic debris so it’s very important to clean your vaporizer.
In this blog, we are going to look at exactly how that’s done using a step by step approach.
*Helpful Tip- Prior to cleaning your Quant, be sure to review the cleaning instructions in the manual.
Begin by pushing out the mouthpiece of your dry herb vaporizer.
Next remove the blue silicone filter from the quartz chamber (if applicable).
Once the stainless steel chamber is removed, the mouthpiece should look like this.
Use Your Brush to Empty Out Leftover Particles
Whether you use flower, concentrate or oil in your Quant, there’s bound to be some herb particles leftover in the heating chamber. Be sure to use the brush to sweep out any residue.
As you remove the particles from the chamber, be sure to place a towel or trash bag underneath to catch the falling debris. This will keep your surface protected and clean.
Look for clogged particles and remove them right away. Avoid using rubbing alcohol or water to clean the insides of the heating chamber, this can damage the wiring. Be sure you do not damage the warming coil as this can cause the Quant to malfunction.
*Helpful Tip- Tiny particles can get trapped in the corners of the Quant. If you are having trouble using the brush to remove debris, take a Q-Tip and lightly swab the inside of the chamber for easy and gentle removal.
Clean The Mouthpiece
Clean the external surface of the mouthpiece with a damp cloth or tissue. For the inside surface, use a Q-Tip or dab tool for a thorough clean. For an extra clean effect, soak the mouthpiece in isopropyl alcohol and wash it with hot water.
Once you’re done, you can reassemble the vaporizer and with a damp cloth —use either isopropyl alcohol or water to dampen cloth— and give it one last wipe.
*Helpful Tip- once you’re done cleaning your vaporizer, switch it on to a high temperature to burn any residual cleaning debris off.
How often do I need to clean my dry herb vaporizer?
How often you need to clean your vaporizer will vary based on what herbs and vaping frequency you partake in. We recommend giving your dry herb vaporizer a thorough cleaning at least once a week. We also recommend wiping down and disinfect the mouthpiece after each session, especially if you are sharing it.
