Danger or hazard levels
Proper use
몇 WARNING
The appliance is not suitable for vacuuming
dust which endangers health.
– The machine is designed for generating
steam and vacuum cleaning spilled liquids and solid substances according to
the description in this Operating Instructions Manual.
– This appliance has been tested and
certified according to HACCP standards and is suitable for thorough and
hygienic cleaning as part of HACCP hygiene management.
– This appliance is suited for the commercial use, e.g. in hotels, schools, hospitals, factories, shops, offices, and rental
companies.
EN – 1
HACCP hygiene management
Device elements
Note: HACCP hygiene management is a
standardised process to prevent hygiene
risks in food-processing plants, hospitals,
hotels, commercial kitchens, etc.
– High steam temperatures combined
with relevant accessories mean that the
appliances offer very effective cleaning.
– Surfaces are not just cleaned thoroughly (99.9% of protein and starch-based
soiling); germs are reduced by up to 3
log units.

Cleaning methods
Cleaning of various materials
–
–
–
–
EN – 3
Please read the cleaning instructions of
the manufacturer before treating leather, special fabrics and wooden surfaces
and always do a trial on a sample or
some hidden part. Let the steam-treated surface dry and then check whether
there are any changes to the colour or
form on account as reaction to the
steam.
We recommend that you be very careful
while cleaning wooden surfaces (furniture, doors, etc.) because long exposure to steam can damage the wax
coating, the finish or the surface colours. Hence we recommend that you
use steam only for short intervals or first
clean the surface with a cloth that has
been steam-moistened.
For highly sensitive surfaces (for e.g.
synthetic materials, painted surfaces,
etc.) we recommend that you use the
steam function at the minimum performance level.
Cleaning of stainless steel: Avoid the
use of abrasive brushes. Use hand nozzle with rubber lip or detail nozzle without a round brush.
Start up
Refreshing textiles
Always test the compatibility of the fabrics
on a hidden spot prior to treating them with
the appliance: Steam first, then allow to dry
before checking for colour changes or deformation.
Cleaning of Coated or Lacquered
Surfaces
Only SGV 6/5:
Note: The supplied spray bottle is empty.
 Fill the spray bottle with the detergent.
Prepare cleaning solution
When cleaning painted or plastic-coated
surfaces, as found on kitchen and living
room furniture, doors, parquet, linoleum;
wax, furniture polish, plastic surfaces or
paint can come loose or stains can be created. When cleaning these surfaces, briefly
steam a cloth and wipe the surfaces with it.
Detergent
몇 WARNING
Health risk, risk of damage. Observe all indications on the detergent used.
ATTENTION
Detergent solutions with a pH-value higher
than 13 (alkaline) and smaller than 2 (acidic) can damage the appliance.
Note: For considerate treatment of the environment use detergent economically.

How to use the accessories
Floor nozzle
Note: Detergent residue or care emulsions
that are still present on the surface to be
cleaned can lead to streaks during steam
cleaning. However, these will disappear
with repeated cleaning procedures.
Application examples
–
–
Handle without accessories
Application examples
–
–
Elimination of odours and wrinkles from
hanging pieces of clothing, by steaming
them from a distance of 10-20 cm.
Detail nozzle
The closer you hold the nozzle to the dirty
spot, the higher the cleaning effect as temperature and pressure of the steam reach
their maximum values immediately when
they are emitted from the nozzle.
Application examples
–
The use of the detail nozzle is recommended for hard to reach areas.
– Treatment of stains on carpeted floors
or carpets prior to the use of the brush.
– Cleaning of stainless steel, window
panes, mirrors and enamel surfaces.
– Cleaning of corners on stairs, window
frames, door posts, aluminium profiles.
– Cleaning of fittings.
– Cleaning of window shutters, radiators,
interior cleaning of vehicles.

The round brush is suitable for stubborn
soiling on especially small surfaces
such as stove tops, roller shutters, tile
joints, sanitary facilities, etc.
Note: The round brush is not suitable
for cleaning sensitive surfaces.
Extension: With this accessory an optimum cleaning of places that are particularly hard to reach is possible. Ideal for
cleaning heaters, door posts, windows,
roller shutters, sanitary facilities.
Cleaning of large surfaces, floors made
of ceramics, marble, parquet, carpets,
etc.
Floor nozzle with rubber lip insert: For
vacuuming up liquids from smooth surfaces.
Floor nozzle with brush strip insert: For
etching and scrubbing down stubborn
soiling.
Hand nozzle
Application examples
–
Recommended for cleaning large glass
and mirror surfaces, smooth surfaces in
general or for the cleaning of fabric surfaces such as sofas, mattresses, etc.
Hand nozzle and accessories
–
Rubber lip: For smaller surfaces such
as multi-pane windows and mirrors. For
window panes and larger surfaces such
as wall tiles, worktops, stainless steel
surfaces.
– Brush collar: For carpets, staircases,
car interiors, fabric surfaces in general
(after carrying out a test on a hidden area). For abrasive cleaning and scrubbing.
Window cleaning
Note: Preheat window panes during seasons with especially low temperatures. In
order to do so, lightly steam the entire glass
surface from a distance of approx. 50 cm.
This will prevent tensions on the surface
which might lead to glass breakage.
 Evenly steam the glass surface from a
distance of approx. 20 cm in order to remove the dirt.
 Switch off the steam supply.
 Strip the glass surface web by web from
top to bottom by means of the rubber lip
and vacuum off.
 Wipe the rubber lip and the lower window frame dry as necessary.
