What is a Prefilter?
The prefilter covers the exterior of your purifier’s filter to capture larger particles such as dust and hair. Prefilters are an important way to keep your purifier working efficiently and extend your filter's life.
For customers who prefer to replace dirty prefilters instead of cleaning them, prefilter replacement packs are an ideal option.

- Sold in packs of 2 or 4 prefilters (not available for the T500)

Prefilters can be cleaned periodically using a vacuum hose attachment. The frequency can vary depending on the environment. For instance, in a dustier environment (or one with pets) it is recommended that the prefilter is vacuumed monthly.
The prefilter should not be submerged in or sprayed with water or any other liquid (cleaner, etc.). Doing so can leave moisture behind that can facilitate the growth of bacteria and/or mold.
