While objects do not have to be completely dry, we do recommend it as the water can cause spots or fog on the aluminum surface, making it less reflective to the UVC light rays.

Adaptors are needed in countries that have 220V electricity.

Why is there a burnt smell on the my mask?

UVC light has no odor. The vast majority of Lumin customers experience no odor. If there is an odor it is likely similar to the smell of burnt hair. Household dust is 90% composed of dead skin cells. Skin, like hair, contains a sulfide molecule. UVC light reduces pathogens by destroying DNA with high energy light. That process also frees the sulfide molecule in a skin or hair molecule. If your unit has an odor please wash thoroughly with a damp cloth using Dawn liquid detergent and dry with a paper towel. Run one cycle with the drawer empty and let the device sit overnight. Next day, your unit should have no odor.

I already did what your website said and the burnt smell will NOT go away, what else can I do?

It is possible that a byproduct in your mask is reacting to the UVC however, we have not found one specific mask that does this continuously.

Am I harming my eyes by looking at the light through the Lumin?

Not at all, the plastic window filters out any harmful UV rays.

How does the Lumin clean the hose if UVC is only on the surface?

The strength of the bulb combined with the transparency level and thinness of material used in the hose enable the Lumin to clean properly.

The strength of the bulb combined with the transparency level and thinness of material used in nasal pillows enable the Lumin to clean properly.

How do I know if the Lumin is actually working?

The Lumin will produce a noticeable blue glow through the window when it is on and running.

Why does my user manual say the Lumin will not clean the hose?

First editions of the manual did not include the hose because testing had not been completed at the time.

Do I still need to clean my mask and hose if I'm using the Lumin?

Yes, always follow manufacturers recommendations for product cleaning.

Does the blue light stay lit during cleaning? Why does the light pulsate?

The blue will stay lit for 5 min for the Lumin only.
