Operations
Before you clean
Thoroughly sweep or vacuum floor prior to
cleaning with the PowerFresh™ Steam Mop.
Cleaning hard floors
Your PowerFresh™ Steam Mop is designed to
clean hard flooring such as ceramic tile, vinyl, laminate, marble, stone and sealed hard wood floors.
Use of your PowerFresh Steam Mop on waxed or
some unwaxed floors may result in a diminished
glossiness. The PowerFresh Steam Mop 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. Plug the unit in and wait 30 seconds for it to
heat up. Choose the level of steam to clean
your floor: Low (delicate floors), Medium
(regular cleaning), High (durable floors or
sticky messes). Begin cleaning by slowly
passing the unit over the floor surface.
2. To sanitize an area of your floor, (attack
invisible germs and bacteria) place the
PowerFresh Steam Mop over the spot for
a minimum 15 seconds using continuous
steam, but no longer than 20 seconds
using continuous steam. For larger areas,
overlap swivel head placement.
Warning:
Never put descaling, alcoholic,
or detergent products into
the steam cleaner, as this
may damage it or make it
unsafe for use.
Warning:
Tinted plates on foot may get
hot while steam mop is in use.
Do not touch while hot.
3. Use your foot to press and lock the Easy
Scrubber brush to thoroughly clean grout,
crevices and sticky messes. Slowly move
the brushes over the sticky mess or grout
to remove.
4. When the PowerFresh™ Steam Mop
stops emitting steam, unplug the unit.
Simply remove the water tank, refill,
and continue cleaning.
Carpet Refresher Attachment
This accessory is recommended for the refreshing
of carpets. Once the steam mop 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 no longer than 20 seconds.
