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, including 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 Your HEPA Filter?
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 while 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.
