Before you clean
Thoroughly sweep or vacuum floor
prior to cleaning with the Healthy Home
Steam Mop Max.
Cleaning hard floors
Your Healthy Home Steam Mop Max
is designed to clean hard flooring such
as ceramic tile, vinyl, laminate, marble,
stone and sealed hard wood floors. Use
of your Healthy Home Steam Mop Max
on waxed or some unwaxed floors may
result in a diminished glossiness. The
Healthy Home Steam Mop Max is not
for use on unsealed wood floors. For
best results test in an inconspicuous area
and check the care instructions from your
flooring manufacturer.
1. When the ready light illuminates, begin
cleaning by slowly passing over surface
while pressing the steam on demand trigger
to emit steam as needed.
NOTE: The trigger does not need to be
depressed at all times for Healthy Home
Steam Mop Max to work satisfactorly
www.bissell.com
Warning:
Never put descaling, aromatic, alcoholic, or detergent products into the steam cleaner, as this may damage it or make it unsafe for use.
CAUTION:
The Healthy Home Steam Mop
Max generates hot steam, so
when depressing the trigger to
apply steam, ensure the Healthy
Home Steam Mop Max is moving continuously. Prolonged
application of steam in one
area increases the risk of damage to the surface treatment of
timber floors.

Operations
Cleaning hard floors continued
2. To sanitize an area of your floor, (attack
invisible germs and bacteria) place the center of the Healthy Home Steam Mop Max
over the spot for a minimum 15 seconds, but
no longer than 20 seconds. For larger areas,
overlap swivel head placement.
3. When the Healthy Home Steam Mop Max
stops emitting steam, simply remove the
water tank, refill, and continue cleaning.
Carpet Refresher Attachment
This accessory is recommended for the
refreshing of carpets. Once the Healthy
Home Steam Mop Max is cradled in the
carpet refresher attachment, it will easily
glide over the carpet.
NOTE: Always be sure a mop pad is in
place before placing in carpet refresher
attachment. Only white mop pads
should be used with the carpet
attachment. Do not use carpet
attachment on spots or stains, or glide it
over the same spot for longer than 20
seconds.
Tip:
During first use, it may
take several seconds for
the Steam Mop to begin
steaming. The water
needs to flow through
the filter to the heater.
This delay will only occur
during initial use or when
using a new filter.
2
1. Attach the mop pad to the swivel mop head.
As directed in step 1 on page 6.
2. Place the swivel mop head, with mop pad
attached, in the carpet refresher attachment. Note: that the Healthy Home Steam Mop
Max rests in the carpet refresher
attachment and may not stay attached
to the swivel mop head. It is meant to
glide over the carpet.
3. Fill the water tank with water. Begin
refreshing your carpet or rug by pushing the
Healthy Home Steam Mop Max in a forward
and backward motion, releasing steam as
you go.
4. When you have finished refreshing your
carpet or rug, unplug the Healthy Home
Steam Mop Max and remove from the carpet or rug.
8
NOTE: Move the Healthy Home Steam
Mop Max and carpet refresher
attachment in a continuous motion until
you are finished. This product is not
intended to be used as a carpet cleaner,
only a carpet refresher or deodorizer.
Never attempt to use the Healthy Home
Steam Mop Max on carpet without the
carpet refresher attachment in place.
DO NOT leave the mop in a stationary
position.

Maintenance and care

head, as mop pad and lower assembly
will be hot.
3. Any water remaining in the water tank
should be emptied prior to machine storage.
CAUTION:
Upright storage of the Steam
Mop with a wet mop pad may
result in the formation of white
marks on your floor. To remove
the white marks, clean area
with vinegar.
4. Mop pad can be machine washed in
warm water. Use only liquid detergants.
Do not use bleach or fabric softeners, For
best results, air dry.
5. Wrap power cord around quick release
cord wrap on side of Healthy Home
Steam Mop Max.

Brass Spray Tip
NOTE: If steam output is reduced, the
nozzle may be blocked. To

Swivel Head Neck
Replacing the water purification system
If you fill your Healthy Home Steam
Mop Max cleaner with normal tap
water, it is essential to check the water
purification system and replace it when
it is no longer effective. Change the
filter when the bright green grains turn
blue. If the filter is not changed at the
appropriate time, calcium deposits will
accumulate on the heating element,
causing damage or reduced
performance.
Using distilled or demineralized water
will maximize the performance of your
filter.
To order a replacement water
purification system refer to the
replacement parts section on page 10.
www.bissell.com
Tip:
Using distilled or demineralized water will
maximize the performance
of your filter.
Tip:
Be sure to use only a
BISSELL water filter in your
Steam Mop.
