Spring clean your home and get the most out of your vacuum. Cleaning and replacing your vacuum filters are much more important than you believe.
Your filters get clogged with bacteria, dust, smoke, mold, and other particles. These can all affect the air quality in your home as well as the performance of your vacuum’s cleaning abilities, if the filter is clogged you will find the suction and general performance of your vacuum will be minimized.
For optimum performance of your cleaner, it is recommended to change your filters regularly.

Our genuine HEPA filters
Our HEPA filters are designed specifically for our range of vacuums. They capture 99.99% of dust particles including pollen, which is ideal to relieve symptoms of asthma and allergy sufferers; especially during the months of spring. The combination of the HEPA filter enhances the dust extraction and the completely sealed filtration system prevents any dust leaks from your vacuum. Whilst it is important to clean your filters, it is equally important that you replace your filters each year. We recommend that you clean your fine dust filters every month (depending on the use) and clean or replace your HEPA every 6-12 months (depending on use).
