The Hoover Windtunnel 2 contains a pre-filter screen in addition to a HEPA filter. The self-cleaning HEPA filter works by spinning while the vacuum is in operation, releasing fine particulates into the dirt cup. The pre-filter screen is removable, and traps larger particles before they reach the HEPA filter. Clean the screen regularly to prevent build-up of dirt and dust, which affects the performance of the vacuum and HEPA filter.
