How to Clean and Wash HEPA Filters?

Some people believe that the number one tool for purifying your home and removing allergens is the air purifier with HEPA filters.

The air purifier is one of the most overlooked parts of your home cleaning arsenal. Most High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters remove 99% of airborne particles and microbes from the air. In fact, this includes allergens, smoke, and mold spores that cause discomfort for you and your guests. But one of the most frustrating parts of owning a HEPA filter is having to constantly clean and replace filters. This doesn’t just cost time, it costs money. This blog will show you how to clean and wash HEPA filters for an air purifier.

Why do You Have to Clean and Wash HEPA Filters?

As debris builds up in your HEPA filter, you will notice it is less effective in cleaning. Most machines that use a HEPA filter will simply require you to replace the filter if it is not marked as washable or permanent. But the drawback to that is that buying new filters begins to add up.

How do You Clean Your HEPA Filter?

The answer to that question depends on the air purifier you are using. Some simply require a few splashes of water. On the other hand, others must be treated with chemicals that can break up tough debris. Shop around and make sure the air purifier that you buy is optimized for your needs and lifestyle. If you have pets and find yourself depending on the air purifier to remove odors, you will want to make the cleaning process as easy as possible.

Experts recommend that HEPA filters should usually be replaced, not just cleaned. But if you absolutely have to clean a HEPA filter, make sure to do your research first.

The method you use to clean your filter depends on what type of HEPA filter you have. Since there are no standards for cleanable HEPA filters to follow as a rule of thumb, you have to pay close attention to marketing terms. A washable HEPA filter, which is included in the Sirena Vacuum, can simply be rinsed under cold water, but you do not want to touch it or you could damage the fibers. You should also let the filter dry completely before replacing it. Follow all instructions to make sure that water does not get into parts of the machine that it does not belong to.

Light, does a nice job

Karen Brady (Palm Coast, FL)

So thrilled to get my new Sirena vacuum. Years ago my mother had a rexair which was the same water principal. I've wanted one ever since. Now I have it! Have used it twice so far with excellent results. I feel I can breathe better plus the suction is terrific for getting up pet hair and such. I am an avid quilter so this vacuum gets all those little threads and lint balls that fly everywhere. Love it!

The Best Vacuum for a whole new meaning to clean

I purchased the sirena vacuum a couple of years ago and I absolutely love it. The air seems cleaner after vacuuming. So I just purchased the sirena cordless vacuum. This is why sirena only got 4 stars. My one and only problem with the cordless vacuum is that it is a little bit short. Maybe just me but it feels like it should be longer. But awesome job sirena!! You out did filter queen and I did not think that was possible. Thank you Sirena!!

Very Good Machine

Been using an upright for years that has HEPA filters. The filters have to be cleaned regularly and dust still seeps through and escapes back into the air. Wife has very sensitive nose and would leave the room
when I was vacuuming. The Sirena doesn’t allow any dust to escape and my wife is much happier now. The Sirena does require more storage space and set up time to get started vacuuming but works very well for cleaning.

Happy customer

My old Rainbow vac died on me after 30 + years of service. I was searching for something similar and found the Sirena. It was delievered very quickly after ordering on line. It was just what I wanted, similar to my old friend but better In Several ways. The price compared to another brand was great and the pick up is far better. I’m a happy customer.
