This is a simple guide I follow whenever my Levoit air purifier and the filter get too dirty. Drop a comment below If you find it helpful, I’d appreciate that! 🙂
Without further adieu, let’s begin!
- Disconnect your Levoit air purifier from the electrical grid.
- I use a non-abrasive cloth to wipe out the outer side of my unit (like this one), but you can use whichever you have. Just make sure it doesn’t contain any chemicals.
- The filter and inner side I clean with my vacuum cleaner. You may take the filter out to reach every corner to remove hair, dust particles, dander, etc. DO NOT USE water or any other liquid to clean the filter – this way you destroy its structure and it will render useless! Here’s a list of air purifiers with a washable filter if you are interested; Levoit filters aren’t designed to be washed.
- Additionally, you may clean the sensor from dust and other dirt. Remove the cover and use a damp cotton swab to clean it, and later polish it with a dry one.
- Put the filter back in, make sure everything is in place and connect the unit to the electrical grid.
Now let’s answer a few questions you probably have.

If you run it 24/7 I’d recommend you clean it every 2 to 4 weeks.
