Cleaning your Puffco Peak involves disassembling the dab rig into its individual parts for a thorough clean just like our best desktop vaporizers. By regularly cleaning and maintaining your Puffco Peak, you´re making sure it performs optimally and lasts longer. Here’s a step-by-step process:

  1. Disassemble the Device: Separate the glass, atomizer, and base.
  2. Clean the Glass: Use a specialized glass cleaner, like Dr. Cronik or Formula 420, for the best results.
  3. Soak the Chamber: Submerge the chamber in 99% isopropyl alcohol for 20 minutes, ensuring thorough air drying afterward.
  4. Wipe Down the Base: Use a cotton swab dipped in alcohol to clean the base and connections.

Cleaning the chamber

Alright, let's dive into the wonderful world of chamber cleaning for your Puffco Peak Pro! The chamber is that magical little spot where all the good stuff happens. It's located at the heart of your device, right on top, and it's responsible for vaporizing your concentrates to give you those smooth, flavorful hits. Think of it as the engine of your Peak Pro - if it's not clean, you're not going to get the best performance.

Now, keeping your chamber in tip-top shape is a breeze. Just remember, it's all about the isopropyl alcohol (iso). Soak that chamber in 90%+ iso for about 20 minutes to get rid of any gunk and residue. And whatever you do, never, ever use water – it's iso only for this delicate piece of tech. Your chamber will thank you, and you'll be back to enjoying those perfect puffs in no time!

What happens if you don't clean your dab rig?

Well, if you don't keep your rig clean, the quality of your dabs will take a hit. Residue and build-up inside the rig can affect the flavor and aroma of your concentrates, leading to a less enjoyable experience. 

Over time, this build-up can also clog your rig, making it harder to use and clean later on. Regular cleaning ensures that each dab is as fresh and flavorful as possible, preserving the quality of your concentrates and the longevity of your rig.
