Filters are the heart of the unit and are extremely important for the performance and air quality of the unit. It is also key in avoiding overheating of your appliance in cases of excess dust build-up. Keeping your appliances clean from dust will certainly improve the longevity and lifespan of your dehumidifier.
1) Cleaning the filters
Clean the filter every 2 weeks, simply using a brush or gently vacuuming it to remove any dust or dirt. Some nylon filters are washable and can be used repeated after washing. Simply rinse the filter in warm water with mild detergent. Later, leave to air dry before returning to the unit. Please avoid force when drying your filter.
2) Clean the air inlet and outlet
Turn off the dehumidifier and unplug it from the mains. Remove any dust and dirt around the air inlet (remove the filter first) and the air outlet either with a soft brush or a gentle vacuum.
It is advisable to replace your filter every 6-12 months as the anti-bacterial properties tend to diminish with time.
