2.
OPEN SAFETY CAP AND FILL TANK WITH WATER: Press and turn the safety cap counter
clockwise to open. Remove the cap and pour distilled water into the steamer. DO NOT put cleaning
fluids in the steamer.
Fill Cap
Distilled will provide longer life to the unit, higher steam capacity, and reduce maintenance
requirements.
3.
REPLACE THE SAFETY CAP AND TIGHTEN: Turn the cap clockwise to close. Keep pressing and
turning the cap until it is tight. Note: This cap does not sit flush on the machine and will continue
to turn once fully tightened.
4.
PLUG IN THE STEAM CLEANER: Plug the power cord into a 110V outlet. The steam cleaner should
be the only appliance plugged into an outlet. Use only a 15AMP extension cord. If you use an
extension cord, the heating will take longer and steam pressure may be less than optimum.
5.
POWER ON THE STEAM CLEANER: Press the POWER button to heat the water in the boiler. It will
take 15 minutes before your steamer is ready to use. The green Steam Ready light will illuminate
when ready. The Pressure Gauge must read 3.5 to 4.5 bars before use.

Refill the Steam Cleaner?
When one of the following happens, your steam cleaner is low on water:
1. The Low Water Indicator Light turns on (orange).
2. The pressure drops fast (below 2 bars) and pressure gauge stays low.
3. Amount of steam is very light and moisture content is low.
Steps to Refill:
1. Turn the power button to the OFF position. The Steam Release Button must remain in the ON
position. The orange light will illuminate. (This is important because the unit will must cool
sufficiently to refill.)
2. Run the steamer on the high setting until pressure gauge reads ”0” (zero).
THE DIAL ON THE PRESSURE GAUGE MUST READ ZERO BEFORE REMOVING THE
SAFETY CAP. REMOVING THE SAFETY CAP UNDER PRESSURE CAN RESULT IN
SERIOUS INJURY.
3. Unplug the steam cleaner.
4. Cover the safety cap with a towel, press down on cap and turn cap very slowly counter- clockwise.
You may hear some steam escaping. Keep the towel over the cap. Remove the safety cap and
refill with distilled water.
WARNING - DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ADD WATER WHILE THE BOILER TANK IS STILL HOT.
LET THE STEAM BOILER COOL AT LEAST 15 MINUTES BEFORE ADDING WATER.
5. Replace safety cap and hand tighten the cap clockwise. Plug the steam cleaner in and press the
On/Off button ON (the orange light on the button should illuminate).

Cleaning and Accessory Maintenance
TANK CLEAN TO REMOVE MINERAL DEPOSITS (Do once a month)
1. When the steam cleaner is cold and unplugged, use a13MM wrench and
remove the drain plug, allowing water to drain from the system.
Replace the drain plug.
2. Remove the safety cap by pressing down on the cap and turning it slowly
counter-clockwise.
3. Mix 1 cup of vinegar and 3 cups of water together and pour into the fill tank.
Let mixture sit for 2 to 3 minutes, remove drain plug and empty the boiler tank.
Repeat steps using clean distilled water until there are no visible mineral deposits
draining from the boiler tank.
VERY IMPORTANT – NEVER ADD CHEMICALS INTO THE TANK! Adding any form of chemicals or
fragrance to the tank will void the warranty and could result in malfunction or damage to the system.
For most jobs, you do NOT need to use cleaners. However, for cleaning surfaces that may have an oil base
mixed with dirt, we recommend heat activated Vapormate (Available at www.homedepot.com or
www.ussteam.net) cleaning agent, which is 100% all natural, and formulated for EXTERNAL use with the
steam cleaner.
Accessory Cleaning – Do after each time used
Always wash accessory brushes with warm, mild soapy water after each use. Get in the good habit of
cleaning brushes before the dirt dries on them. All accessories can also be cleaned in the dishwasher,
except for the flexible hose. Accessories can be sanitized by steaming them with the steam hose and the 1hole nozzle.
Water Conditioning
It is recommended to supply the steam cleaner distilled water to help prevent scale build-up. Even though
the US Steam System is engineered to minimize scale formation, scale development depends on the
hardness of your water and the number of hours the equipment operates.
Most tap water sources are full of minerals, which form scale during operation leading to component failure.
Your water utility can tell you about the mineral content of your water. For optimal performance and
component longevity, water should have between 10 and 30 parts per million (PPM) total dissolved solids
(TDS) and should have a pH (acidity rating) of 7.0 or higher.
Using distilled water, especially in areas with hard tap water, will provide longer life to the unit,
higher steam capacity, and reduce maintenance requirements.
If you notice a reduction in steam production, check the unit for scale build-up. Heavy scale reduces the
unit’s ability to boil water, and may cause the boiler to overheat and burn out. (See “Maintenance” section
for information about removing mineral deposit build up.)

Work Techniques
The temperature of the steam at the tip of the nozzle is between 312ºF - 285ºF, since
the vapor is dry, it cools to 245ºF 4” from the tip less than 185ºF 8” inches from the
tip. Most bacteria begins to die when exposed to temperatures of 245ºF so keeping
the tip of the handle close to the work area is key to successful cleaning.
Using a bonnet clipped to the large floor or triangular brush allows heat to be spread evenly on the work
area. Work from the top down on any area so dirt will not fall on cleaned surfaces.
First, start with cleaning corners and other tight areas with the nozzle and small brushes, working your way
up to larger surfaces and brushes. Use this method to regulate the temperature you apply to surfaces
where heat is a concern, like paint, wood, plastic, etc.
PRE-STEAM
Get into the habit of pre-steaming a surface if it is heavily soiled. At a
4-inch distance, spray steam on surface from all directions for 10 seconds.
PRE-TREAT
Use heat activated Vapormate® to pre-treat surface areas before
steaming.
SPEED
WIPE
OTHER EQUIPMENT
Let the heat do the work for you! Do not move too quickly, unless surface
is sensitive to heat like wood, paint, wallpaper, colored fabrics or plastic.
Always remember to wipe the area you just cleaned with a cotton towel or
use one of the larger brushes with a bonnet attached to the brush using the
brush clips.
All surfaces have pores. Steam cleaners use the steam vapor to open and
deep clean into the surface pores. Wipe off dirt immediately before the
surface cools down.
The only other equipment you need is a good HEPA vacuum cleaner.
Always vacuum carpets and floors before steam cleaning.
Floors
Floors – Pre-vacuum or sweep and use the large floor brush with clipped on bonnet at low or medium
steam. If you use the extension wands, insert one wand into the other making sure the lengthwise lines
on them are all lined up with each other on each piece. Keep a bucket available for dirty bonnets and
towels.
a. Tile – Use a large floor or triangle brush at low or medium steam. Always use a clean bonnet
and towel so they are absorbing the dirt. If floor is very dirty, use the brush without attached bonnet,
and mop dirt immediately as you go with a spare cotton towel. Pre-treat stains with heat activated
Vapormate®.
b. Tile Grout – Use the 1-inch nylon round brush with the 1-hole nozzle on low or medium steam.
Pre-spraying the grout crevices with heat activated.
c. Vinyl or Wood – Use the large floor brush with a bonnet at low steam volume. If the floor is
especially dirty, pre-treat area lightly with cleaner such as Murphy’s Oil Soap or Vapormate®.
9
NOTE: WHEN STEAMING A WOOD FLOOR, NEVER LET BRUSH STAND IN ONE PLACE
WHILE STEAM TRIGGER IS ON. ALWAYS KEEP BRUSH MOVING. GO OVER AREA TWO
OR THREE TIMES AS NEEDED AND ALWAYS USE A CLEAN BONNET AND TOWEL.
d. Waxed Vinyl Floors - Use large floor brush and the 3-inch round brush in corners. Clip a clean
bonnet over the large floor brush. Apply steam, cleaning a small area quickly as you go. This
should melt a top layer of wax holding the dirt in the pores of the floor. If the floor is greasy or very
dirty, you may need to repeat this procedure. It may be necessary to reapply floor sealer when
finished.
e. Unwaxed Vinyl Floors - Use the large brush with a bonnet and low steam.
NOTE: DO NOT OVERHEAT ANY KIND OF VINYL, SINCE THIS COULD SOFTEN THE
SURFACE AND AFFECT THE TEXTURE. THIS ALSO APPLIES WHEN USING SMALL
BRUSHES TO REMOVE TOUGH SPOTS.
f. Wood Parquet Floors - Use large brush with a bonnet at low steam. Squeeze trigger every 3 to
5 seconds and move quickly to avoid heat or moisture buildup in wood. Use heat activated
Vapormate® for dirty floors.
g. Marble Floors - Use the same techniques as used for wood floors, keeping heat and moisture
off the surface as much as possible. Always use Marble conditioner after cleaning. NOTE: SOME
MARBLE SURFACES CAN DISCOLOR.
CARPETS
We do not recommend this steam cleaner for cleaning large carpeted areas but rather for spot cleaning.
Man made carpet fibers melt at temperatures 300ºF and above. The heat from the vapor system
does not melt the fibers, but it can change their shape or color at temperatures 185ºF-250ºF.
Use large floor or triangle brush on medium steam setting, 2 inches above carpet, and pre-steam a 6x6
foot area. The steam will cause the dirt and soil particles to loosen their grip on the carpet fibers and
opens up the fibers. Then use a large brush with a bonnet on medium steam pressure and go over presteamed area with same movements as when you vacuum. Change towels when dirty. Repeat these
steps if necessary. Move on to next area.
Tips for Treating Carpet Stains
a. Protein Stain: Dab with towel dampened with a solution of 1 teaspoon white vinegar and 1 quart of
cold water.
b. Food Dye Stain: Wet stain with a solution of water and lemon juice or white vinegar.
c. Water Stain: First wet the stain with carbonated water, and then use triangular brush with towel.
d. Reoccurring Stain: If a stain comes up again and again, it has a “reservoir” under the padding.
Before removing the stain you have to dry it out first. Presses a drying agent such as talcum
powder, a mixture of cornstarch and cornmeal, or clean unscented, uncolored cat litter into the fibers
do not rub. Let sit for 20 minutes, and then vacuum it out.
e. Surface Stain: If the stain is only on the surface of the carpet, it can be removed by shooting the
steam against the spot from the side, 1-2 inches above surface. Hold a towel on the other side to
catch the residue. This prevents driving the particles deeper into the fibers.
f. Gum: Same technique as SURFACE STAIN, except use paper towel instead of cotton towel. If the
gum melts too much, let it cool off before trying again. Once major part of gum is removed mist with
a non-toxic cleaning formula and re-clean
