These filters are washable and never need to be replaced. Airborne pollutants become charged and trapped inside the filter. The HEPA Air Purifier uses a carbon filter to remove odors, a HEPA-Type filter to remove particles as small as 0.3 microns, and a TiO2 Filter with UV light to eliminate mold, bacteria and viruses.
