Cleaning Bare Floors
Your Steam Mop is designed to clean bare flooring such as ceramic
tile, vinyl, laminate, marble, stone and sealed hard wood floors. Use of
your Steam Mop on waxed or some unwaxed floors may result in a
diminished glossiness. The Steam Mop is not for use on unsealed wood
floors. For best results test in an inconspicuous area or check the care
instructions from your flooring manufacturer.
Sweep or vacuum floor prior to using.
1.
2.
Slowly pass over surface to be cleaned while pressing
trigger to emit steam.
3.
To sanitize an area of your floor, leave the Steam Mop over
that area for a minimum of 15 seconds, but no longer than
20 seconds. For larger areas, overlap Swivel Head placement.
4.
When the Steam Mop stops emitting steam, simply remove
the Water Tank, refill, and continue cleaning.
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.
Routine Maintenance

AUTION:

When You’re Done
1.
8
Unplug Power Cord from outlet.
2.
Carefully remove Mop Pad from Swivel 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.
4.
Mop Pad can be machine washed in hot water and
tumbled dry.
5.
Wrap Power Cord around Quick Release Cord Wrap on side
of Steam Mop.
6.
Wipe all surfaces of Steam Mop with a soft cloth. Store
upright in a protected, dry area or hang by storage hook.
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.
Replacing The Water Filter
If you fill your steam cleaner with normal tap water, it is
essential to check the Water Filter 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.
Replacement Filter
Use only BISSELL Water Filters (218-5600) in your BISSELL Steam Mop steam cleaner. To locate a
retailer near you, or to place an order, call us as follows:
