How To Clean Homedics Air Purifier Filter

Did you know that running your HOMEDICS air purifier at maximum performance can also shorten its lifespan? The good news is that with a little tender love and care, your purifier can last you a long time. By following these simple steps, you can extend the life of your device and get the most out of it. So read on to learn how to keep your HOMEDICS air purifier running like new for as long as possible.

Keep the filters clean

The HEPA filters in your device are there to trap and remove particulate matter from the air. When they get dirty, they become less efficient at their job, so it’s important to keep them clean. To clean your device’s filters, you can either gently vacuum them or wipe them down with a damp cloth. Your device has two filters: an inside filter and an outside filter. Both should be cleaned about every three months. Make sure you completely dry the inside filter before you put it back in your device. Otherwise, it will trap moisture and grow mold inside your device. If you notice that your filters have collected a lot of dust and dirt particles, you may have allergies and need to clean them more frequently. Your device’s filters are washable, but don’t use soap, bleach, or any other chemicals on them.

Don’t dry your HOMEDICS dryer too long

Your device comes with a built-in drying mode to help you keep your room’s humidity levels at a healthy level. You should use this feature once a week at most. Putting your device in the dryer for too long can damage it and cause it to malfunction. If you notice that your device is taking longer than normal to dry your device, it may be time to replace your filter. You can also use this feature to quickly dry your device if it gets wet. Your device may say that you can dry it for up to six hours, but we recommend not going much beyond two hours. If you’re worried that your device isn’t drying properly, you can leave it out for a shorter period of time.

Drying your device with care

Always place your device in a safe, well-ventilated area. Make sure you’re not near any sources of heat, as this can cause damage to your device. Be careful not to overload the dryer with your device, as this can also damage it. We recommend regularly cleaning out the dryer’s filter to keep it running efficiently. If you notice that your device isn’t getting dry after two hours, unplug it and check the inside of the dryer to make sure everything is okay. If not, unplug the device and let it air dry. If you notice that your device is taking longer than normal to dry, it may be time to replace the filter.

Keep it out of direct sunlight

Your device produces UV light as a by-product of its germ-killing technology. However, it’s important to keep your device away from direct sunlight, as this can cause the UV light to increase in intensity. Over time, this can cause damage to the device, its parts, and the room it’s in. If you’re in a sunny area, make sure to keep your device in a shaded area. If you want to use it in a sunny area, you can use a UV light-blocking shield to keep your device safe.

Make sure the room stays at a consistent temperature

Air purifiers work best in rooms that stay at a consistent temperature. If the temperature in the room fluctuates, it will affect how well your purifier works. When the temperature is low, the air flow may become reduced, which can cause your device to operate less efficiently. High temperatures can cause the device to overwork, which can shorten its lifespan. If your room is particularly cold or hot, we recommend putting your device in a shaded area.

Conclusion

Your HOMEDICS air purifier is a great investment, but it needs a little tender love and care to keep it running like new for as long as possible. By following these simple steps, you can extend the life of your device and get the most out of it.
