Taking up minimal space but packing a powerful air-cleaning punch, the TrueAir Compact Air Purifier is not only compact and quiet, it works vertically or horizontally for maximum versatility. Care and Cleaning Four adhesive "feet" are provided in case you want to place the TrueAir Compact Air Purifier horizontally on a table or shelf. For the best air-cleaning results, select a location with adequate air circulation. Do not use in a kitchen, garage, or area with grease, oil, or chemicals such as solvents or insecticides. Before use, be sure to remove the plastic bag around the permanent HEPA filter. It is important to vacuum the permanent filter regularly. Depending on usage, plan on vacuuming it every three to six months. To make it a habit, vacuum the permanent filter every time you change your car's oil or when you vacuum your upholstered furniture, drapes, or blinds.
