How to Clean Med Aire Alternating Pressure Mattress System?

Control Unit

  • UNPLUG the control unit from its power source prior to cleaning.
  • Check for external damage and move the control unit to the cleaning area.
  • Place the control unit on a work surface and wipe the outside of the case with a clean cloth to remove any dust or particles. Make sure all areas are clean (top and bottom, both sides).
  • Spray cloth with cleaning solution and clean faceplate and control unit casing. DO NOT allow excess cleaning solution on faceplate or control panel. (If solution gets inside, the damage will occur.)
  • After the control unit is thoroughly cleaned and dried, proceed to plug in the control unit and test for normal functioning.
  • Unplug the control unit and store with proper identification tag until needed for use.
  • Avoid long exposure to sunlight.


  • Remove any soiled or used bedding.
  • Examine the mattress for visible soilage of bodily fluids. If no disinfection is required, brush off or wipe down all surfaces of the cover sheet with soap and water before wetting with any liquid disinfectant.
  • If disinfection is required, follow the procedure below: - Use rubber gloves and eye protection. - Unzip the top cover from the mattress. - Prepare detergent/disinfectant solution (registered by the EPA recommended) according to the preparation recommended for correct use-dilution. - 1:9 Bleach and water dilution may be used. - With the mattress fully deflated, wipe down all surfaces around and in between the air cells, including the cells. - Covers may be immersed and soaked in disinfectant for the required incubation period. After presoaking, the cover may be rinsed through a regular cycle in a washer with no soap then laundered with mild detergent (wash temperature 93°F/34°C, rinse temperature 78°F/26°C or on the coldest setting). - Allow all covers and parts to aerate until they are fully dry.
  • Repeat the process with the tubing set: spray/wipe, incubate, and air dry. Dry the mattress on a flat surface area after cleaning, away from exposure to the sun.
  • Avoid long exposure to sunlight
