How to Perform Cleaning on Ecoquest Air Purifier
EcoQuest air purifiers improve the air quality in a home by removing harmful particles. Over time, the lint screen and purification plate will become clogged with the impurities, reducing its ability to clean the air. In addition, the outside of the machine will collect dust and dirt, making the purifier look dingy and old. In order to return your EcoQuest air purifier to maximum effectiveness and to keep the machine looking like new, clean the lint screen, purification plate and housing regularly.
Unplug the air purifier from the electrical outlet.
Dampen a soft cloth with warm water and wipe down the outside of the air purifier. Do not soak the cloth or use chemical cleaning agents.
Remove the two screws from the back cover an pull it off of the air purifier. Remove the two screws holing the lint screen in place and lift the lint screen off of the machine.
Vacuum the lint screen with a brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner to remove heavy dirt. If any dirt remains, wash the lint screen in hot water and lightly scrub the screen with a toothbrush. Let the screen dry before placing it back in the air filter.
Grip the purification plate in the middle of the machine and lift it out of the holder. Wipe down the plate with a mixture of ammonia and water and allow it to dry completely. When dry, reinsert the plate in the holder.
Reattach the lint screen and the back cover and plug the air purifier back into the electrical outlet to restart operation.
