DPF Cleaning

DPF Cleaning Services

Here at DPF Solutions, we provide Sheffield’s best diesel particulate filter cleaning services and guarantee an improvement in performance without needing to replace the filter. After years of use, your DPF will collect excessive amounts of soot and engine waste materials, and will become clogged. This will cause your engine to lose power and the overall performance of your car will worsen. We can provide you with an efficient and effective DPF cleaning service without replacing the filter, restoring it to near factory condition. We utilise the best practise chemical cleaning methods to ensure the DPF is unblocked and will work to its full potential again.

Stage 1 & 2 Cleaning Services

DPF Solutions offer two kinds of DPF cleaning service, available for both personal and commercial vehicles. Stage 1 DPF cleaning involves a simple, non-aggressive chemical clean that removes the bulk of the diesel particulate matter. This returns the filter back to normal working condition and will get you back on the road as soon as possible. Stage 2 DPF cleaning involves the use of the brand new Flash Cleaner machine, a highly advanced piece of technology that courses a bioenzyme-based solution through the filter. This solution reacts with the build ups of soot and diesel to chemically soften it, with the power of the jets blasting it out of the filter. This provides a more thorough clean, restoring the filter to near factory condition. Neither of these services involves no oven baking, cutting or welding and therefore will preserve the noble metals and structural integrity of the filter. We also offer a postal delivery service, which allows you to send us your DPF filter for cleaning hassle free. Your filter will then undergo the regeneration package of your choice and will be sent back to you as soon as it has been restored to original factory efficiency.

Stage 1 DPF Cleaning

Stage 1 service provides a practical solution for blocked DPF filters. Using the latest TerraClean DPF cleaning products, our specialists will bring your filter back to life. Without the expenditure of replacing the DPF filter.

Stage 2 DPF Cleaning

Our Stage 2 DPF cleaning service works differently, with the filter being placed into a machine which uses a pressurised valve that blasts pressurised water, removing the soot situated within the filter.

How The Cleaning Process Works

Both our methods of DPF cleaning follow the same concept to ensure that the filter sustains no collateral damage, which is unfortunately commonplace with many filter cleaners around the country.


  • Step 1 – The blockage within your DPF filter is softened to prepare for a deep chemical clean.
  • Step 2 – The soot is flushed out of the filter by a cleaning agent, eradicating the residual materials blocking the filter.
  • Step 3 – We will instruct your engine management system to lower the temperature that diesel matter is displaced, which will ensure that soot is removed at an earlier stage.
  • Result – This makes your DPF less prone to blockages in the future, and will also extend its lifespan.

How to tell if your DPF needs cleaning

Telling if your DPF filter needs cleaning can be found by looking into the symptoms of a blocked diesel particular filter. If you notice a drop in performance, fuel economy or a strange smell, it’s likely that your DPF has become blocked. If you notice these symptoms and/or see a DPF warning light on your dashboard simply get in touch. Our complete DPF rejuvenation service will restore your vehicles DPF to factory standards, complete with our Flash Cleaning service for a clean and reliable diesel exhaust system.

Since 2009, it has been required that all new diesel cars, vans and lorries feature a diesel particulate filter, leading to manufacturers recommending diesel cars for heavy motorway drivers, and smaller petrol engines for cities and low-milage. The explanation for this is that constantly driving short, stop-start journeys do not allow your car’s exhaust and DPF to get hot enough to burn off the soot, leading to a blocked DPF, which eventually causes back pressure and serious engine problems.


Other DPF Services

DPF Regeneration

This process clears the excess soot and diesel particulate matter that has gathered within your filter mesh and is unable to be cleared naturally.

DPF Replacement

If your vehicle’s DPF filter is beyond repair then we provide a comprehensive evaluation and replacement service.

The Importance of Cleaning Your Filter

Your Diesel Particulate Filter is a vital part of your exhaust system, and if it becomes blocked it will affect your vehicles performance in many areas, and could even cause a complete breakdown. You have to keep on top of your filter’s condition to avoid the need of replacing it. If you ensure that your DPF is cleaned regularly, it can last for a very long time. Your DPF will begin to build up diesel waste matter as soon as the car is driven, and there is no guarantee that this will burn away with use. It’s always a sensible idea to check the condition of your DPF and make sure that it is cleaned professionally. While DPF blockages are probable with time, there are ways to look after your filter to minimise the need for maintenance.
