It all depends on the environment that your Neato robotic vacuum cleans. For environments with a lot of dust or pet hair, more frequent cleaning is necessary.

A general rule is that you should clean your Neato filters on a regular basis and replace them every 1-2 months.

After every cleaning, empty your dirt bin and tap your filter against the side of a garbage receptacle to release the dirt and debris from the filter.

After every few cleanings, you may want to use a hand vac to remove the dirt from the filter. Do not clean the filter with water or soap.

Filters can be used on Neato XV-14, Neato XV-12, Neato XV Signature, Neato XV-21, etc.
