When you are using the mop for the first time, it might take longer than the normal 30 seconds to start steaming. Just pump the handle a few times in a downward motion to prime the pump and it should be ready. 3 2 1 NOTE: Make sure the floors are swept or vacuumed before using the steam mop. 1 Pull and twist the quick release cord holder to unwrap the power cord completely. A great time saver! Plug into a 120-volt electrical outlet The power “On” light will turn blue, it takes approximately 30 seconds for the mop to heat up and the steam to be ready. 6 TOLL FREE: 1-800-798-7398 2 Pump the handle a few times in a downward motion. This pumping action will release steam as you mop and allows you to customize the amount of steam you want. Begin mopping with a forward and backward motion. The natural motion of mopping will produce steam. 3 When one side of the micro-fiber pocket gets dirty, just flip the mop head and you can quickly start using the other side. Dirt can’t hide on either side. IMPORTANT: Please wait 3-5 minutes for the Steam Mop to cool off before switching the mop head or the micro-fiber pockets. 4 When the water tank is empty, the steam mop will stop producing steam. You can refill the water tank at any time as long as the mop is unplugged from the outlet. Follow the instructions from page 3. This goes for switching the mop heads or micro-fiber pockets as well. IMPORTANT: Never leave the steam mop with a damp/wet micro-fiber pocket on any floor surface for any amount of time as this may damage the floor. www.sharkcompany.com 7 Using Your Carpet Glider English Care of Your Steam Mop AFTER USE AND STORAGE 1 When you have finished using the steam mop, and your floors are clean, unplug the cord from the outlet and move it into an upright position. Let the unit cool 2-3 minutes and release steam by pumping the handle several times before removing the micro-fiber cleaning pocket from the mop head. The Steam Mop won’t clean your carpeting or area rugs. However, it’s great for deodorizing and freshening. 3 1 2 1 THE CARPET GLIDER 1 The Carpet Glider can be used with the Rectangle head to lightly steam your carpet and area rugs. Just place the mop head on top of the glider and move back and forth across a section of the carpet. The steam mop won’t clean your carpeting or areas rugs, but it’s great for deodorizing and freshening. NOTE: Please note that the Steam Mop rests on top of the carpet glider and it is not a fixed attachment. Do not leave steam mop with carpet glider in one stationary position for any period of time. 8 TOLL FREE: 1-800-798-7398 2 Remove the micro-fiber cleaning pocket by releasing the quick fasteners and using the lavender loop on the side of the pocket, avoiding contact with the hot pocket or dirt. Then empty the water tank. IMPORTANT: Be very careful because the cleaning pockets can get very hot from the steam, so use caution when removing them. Let the unit cool 2-3 minutes. 3 To store the Shark® Steam Mop hanging up; first remove the head (after it has cooled and the steam has been released) then hang on a large hook.
