How to use your Samsung Air Purifier

Even the cleanest homes have dust, allergens, and other microscopic debris floating around in the air - you just can’t see it with the naked eye. That’s where the Samsung Cube Air Purifier comes in, and helps with understanding the air in your home. It will cleanse the air in your home and remove troublesome airborne material. Not only will your home feel pristine, there will be added health benefits as well.

Healthy air for a healthier you

The air is filled with all kinds of stuff, even if you can’t see it. Living spaces, such as houses or apartments, tend to collect a lot of allergens, germs, and dirt from outside. You could be unknowingly breathing in something harmful. This is especially a concern if you have allergies or a breathing condition.

Fortunately, the Samsung Air Purifier removes allergens, pet dander, bacteria, and other pollutants from the air, which will ease allergy and asthma symptoms. Of course, breathing in clean air is better for your health, even if you don’t suffer from allergies. It can even improve lung function! Finally, the purifier can even prevent airborne bacteria and germs from being spread around.

Clean the pre-filter

The pre-filter is located behind the rear panel and will need to be cleaned every two weeks, especially if the air purifier is used daily.

  1. Remove the pre-filter from the inside of the device. Carefully vacuum the filter, and then rinse it in lukewarm water.

  2. Keep the pre-filter in a shaded area away from direct sunlight so it can dry. Do not reinsert the pre-filter until it has dried completely.

Clean the exterior

Although the pre-filter will trap most pollutants and debris, the exterior of the Air Purifier may collect dust or become dirty. The outside panels and the sensors should be cleaned as well.

  1. Remove the front and rear panels by pulling forward. Then, wipe them down with a damp cloth.

  3. If the panels are layered with dust, you can rinse them with water. Make sure the panels are dry before reattaching and using the device.

View the PM on your Air Purifier

PM stands for “Particulate Matter.” It’s a standard created by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and refers to the size of particles, measured in micrometers. The PM Concentration Level is an approximate measurement of how many particles of that size are in a cubic meter. There are three different PM sizes displayed on the Samsung Air Purifier. Here's what they stand for:

  • PM10: Particles in the air that are about 1/5 of the diameter of a human hair.

  • PM2.5: Particles in the air that are about 1/20 of the diameter of a human hair.

  • PM1.0: Particles in the air that are about 1/50 of the diameter of a human hair.

Although your air purifier will filter larger particles from the air, these are the only sizes that are measured, along with gas pollution.

When you want to know about the air quality in your home, you can check these different levels:

Very poor (Red)
     • PM10: 151 and over
     • PM2.5/PM1.0: 76 and over
     • Gas pollution level: 4
Poor (Yellow)
     • PM10: 81 - 150
     • PM2.5/PM1.0: 36 - 75
     • Gas pollution level: 3
Moderate (Green)
     • PM10: 31 - 80
     • PM2.5/PM1.0: 16 - 35
     • Gas pollution level: 2
Good (Blue)
     • PM10: 30 and below
     • PM2.5/PM1.0: 15 and below
     • Gas pollution level: 1

Samsung Air Purifier capabilities and limitations

While the Samsung Air Purifier is extremely helpful, it can’t do everything. Here are some things to keep in mind when using one:

  • The air purifier cannot remove carbon monoxide.

  • The air purifier is not designed to work in very humid or dusty environments, so do not place it in this kind of environment.

  • Do not install the air purifier near a heat source and flammable objects. Avoid exposure to oil, gas, direct sunlight, and water.

  • You can use the air purifier to remove strong smells from the air, but please be aware that the smell can get trapped in the filter and hang around even longer. This will also reduce the filter’s lifespan and require you to replace the filter sooner.

Purchase replacement filters

If you like using your air purifier every day, the filters will need to be replaced every 6 months. The filters may last up to one year if the device is not running daily, but you should check them often for heavy dust buildup.

Since the deodorization filters and dust collecting filters cannot be cleaned, they must be replaced with new filters. These can be purchased on Samsung’s website.
