Austin Air Cleaner Maintenance
One of the best features of the whole line of Austin air cleaners is that they require much less maintenance and less frequent filter changes than competitor's air purifiers. A simple periodic cleaning and filter changes roughly every 5 years is all that is required to keep your Austin in perfect operating condition!
CleaningYour Austin Air cleaner requires very little maintenance. To remove any dust buildup on the intake area of the air cleaner, vacuum the surface using the brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner. The other surfaces can be cleaned with a soft damp or dry cloth.

5. Wearing your work gloves, grasp the filter, carefully lift it out and place in plastic garbage bag.
