The HEPA filter on a Shark vacuum will last for about a year. However, the filter may need to be replaced after a certain number of cleanings or when the vacuum becomes dirty. Keeping this in mind, you should clean your Shark vacuum at least four times a year. You can set a reminder on Google to remind you, but you may not be able to catch it if you use a calendar that doesn’t include dates!
The HEPA filter is located on the front lower part of your Shark vacuum. It is usually made of foam rubber. You can easily remove this filter by pulling back the filter grill. Once removed, rinse the filter thoroughly and let it air dry before replacing it. You can rinse the HEPA filter every month or every year.
The HEPA filter is made to capture a wide variety of airborne particles. These particles include car exhaust, gas stove exhaust, mold spores, and animal dander. These particles are generated both indoors and outdoors. The particles can also move through cracks and wall joints. The HEPA filter works better when it is not too thick or has a thin layer of particles on it.
A HEPA filter should be replaced at least once every three months. However, some filters may need to be replaced more often, especially if you are using your Shark vacuum frequently and vacuuming large amounts of fine dust.
