As mentioned before HEPA filter cannot be cleaned.
HEPA filters have to be replaced in a period of 5~10 years depending on the product and pre filters.
After installation of new filters a leak test has to be performed to validate the filters.

We are having only prefilters followed by fine filters but no bag filters.

Depending on the application and process a dedicated filter system has to be designed.
My understanding so far, if incorrect please let me know,

Pre-filter is the first filter installed, for example in AHU to prevent dust particle particle to pass through air. It can also be called micro filter and is around 5 micron. It means that particles of more than 5 microns per cubic ft cannot pass through that filter.

Hepa filter on the other hand can be EU-13 or EU-14 filter of 0.3micron. It means that particles of more than 0.3 microns per cubic ft cannot pass through that filter. This filter is highly recommended in hospitals and pharma industries to control contamination.

Bag filter is called BIBO. Bag in bag out system or bibo housing. The purpose of the bibo is also to prevent contamination. The filter in this bag type can be a hepafilter or pre filter depending upon the user’s air filtration needs.

It is better to understand the application and/or process this filter are being used.
