Venta offers a couple of products to help maintain the cleanliness of their products (Venta Shop). We've been adding the Water Treatment Additive regularly. That helps prevent calcium and lime build-up to help keep the water clean / more anti-bacterial. About once every six months, it is important to do a more thorough cleaning to ensure all the residues are removed. That's where their Venta Cleaner product comes into play. The $22.99 for five months of Water Treatment additive and $12.99 charge for the cleaner is a small price to pay to keep the product running strongly.
One other thing I want to mention about Venta that I did not try is their new aromatherapy line. They offer scented essential oils you can add into the water to provide a fragrance from the Airwasher. It is an interesting idea if you want to add a smell to the room while in use.We've redecorated our Airwasher a little. While the lights on the top are not really that bright, our son doesn't like them and they're now covered with electrical tape. The camo duct tape was holding up a piece of cardboard but that didn't survive long, blocking the lights. The machine is still too quiet for my son's liking. I'm amazed at how much he likes the noise machine that we got to make the noise of the old humidifier. Even when he visits grandma and grandpa's, he'll take the noise machine with him.
The Venta is still going strong and something essential to our family. Since there are no filters, just gotta remember to keep it clean for best results.
