Does anyone know if you can clean a hepa filter somehow. My prefilter is covered in dust so I washed it out. After removing the prefilter I discover there is a lot of large dust on the outside of the two hepa filters. Is there a way I can remove this? Could I use compressed air(from a distance at least a meter) and spray back through the filter the opposite way or kinda spray the back side parellel to the filter? I think this may cause damage to the filter, but if im careful by the distance and method of spraying it may not damage the filter. Anyone have any ideas, expierience preferred.

of course its common sense compressed air will clean the filter but the holes in the filter are what? .3 microns? Air at such a pressure would surely destroy an organized structed such as HEPA. That's why I ask if anyone has any type of expierience with this.

I personally would vaccumm any dirt off, or use a light blast of air to blow off the dust, but I would be very carefull.

diffuse the blast from an airgun... yaknow.. cover the tip and the air that comes off your finger will be traveling vastly slower, or better yet, they may plastic blower that are fan shaped and then they have variable valves for them. i use them at work all the time.

Thanks guys, I think im going to try a vaccumm first and suck out. See what that does, if not i'll go the compressed air from the side route.
