How do I care for my RevAir?Updated 2 years ago

With minimal, regular maintenance, your RevAir should continue for years working as if brand new.

We recommend emptying your filter every 2-3 uses and washing your filter after every 5 uses.  


  • With your Reverse-Air Dryer unplugged, unlock the Filter Panel by rotating the Panel Latch counter-clockwise.

  • Remove the Filter panel and set it aside.
  • Slide out the Filter Basket and empty any accumulated hair.

Does your filter require additional cleaning?  Check the Filter Screen for residual product build-up while you have the Mesh Filter out of the device.  Hold the Filter up to a light, if your Filter is clean, the light will be clearly visible through the Filter Screen. If the Screen is not clear, try filling the Filter with water. If the water does not drain quickly, your Filter needs a thorough cleaning.

For detailed instructions on cleaning your Filter, click HERE for the New RevAir, or HERE for the Original RevAir. 


We recommend cleaning the exhaust filter(s) once per month. The New RevAir has dual exhaust filters located on each side of the Base, while the Original RevAir has a single exhaust filter located on the back of the Base.

  • To remove the Exhaust Filter simply pinch the sides together and gently pull to remove the filter from its housing within the Base.

  • After removing the Exhaust Filter, shake off any dust and rinse well with warm (not hot) water. Do not wring or twist.

  • Gently shake out any excess water, place on a cloth or paper towel, and allow to air dry.

  • When completely dry, insert the Exhaust Filter back into the Base, in the original orientation.

  • While gently pinching the sides, press the filter back into the Base.


We recommend checking and cleaning your Heat Chamber Cover as you notice hair, dust, or lint accumulation or build-up on the screens.

  • First, unplug your Reverse-Air Dryer.

  • Twist Heat Chamber Cover located at the rear of your RevAir Wand counter-clockwise to remove.

  • Remove any accumulated hair and/or lint from both Heat Chamber Screens by lightly brushing with a small dry brush such as a soft toothbrush.

  • Replace the Heat Chamber Cover by aligning notches, pushing the Heat Chamber Cover on, and twisting clockwise until secure.
