In short: in addition to regularly replacing filters, it is also important to clean a Dyson air purifier regularly. This is best done with a dry microfiber cloth.

A Dyson air purifier ensures that the air in a room is cleaned. But in order to do this properly, it is very important to clean the air purifier itself every now and then. Although a Dyson air purifier does not have washable filters, you can clean the air purifier yourself.

Why clean a Dyson purifier?

Let me start by asking why it is important to clean a Dyson air purifier. An air purifier can get dirty: dust can end up on the device and then spread when blowing out clean air. To prevent this, it is important to clean it regularly.

But that’s not the only reason to clean your Dyson purifier every now and then. Check out all the main reasons below:

It should therefore be clear that regular maintenance is not an unnecessary luxury.

How do you clean a Dyson air purifier?

Cleaning your Dyson air purifier requires no technical knowledge. All you need is a dry clean cloth, preferably a soft microfiber cloth. Follow the steps below:

  • Turn off the Dyson purifier
  • Remove the plug from the socket
  • Dust the housing gently with a dry, lint-free cloth
  • Remove the Dyson filters
  • Check the air purifier for blockages
  • Remove dirt with a soft brush

Note: Do not use cleaning agents to clean the air purifier. And regarding the filters: cleaning a Dyson air purifier filter is unfortunately not possible. These are replaceable only.

Note: Do not use cleaning agents to clean the air purifier.

When and how often to clean the air purifier?

How often and when you need to clean the air purifier depends, among other things, on where you place the air purifier. It will probably get dirty faster in the kitchen than if you place the purifier in a bedroom.

It is smart to also check the condition of the filters during cleaning. Have you linked to the MyDyson app? Then you can see exactly when your filters need to be replaced.
