WARNING
Do not plug in your hard floor cleaner
until you are familiar with all instructions
and operating procedures.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of electric shock,
turn power switch off and disconnect
polarized plug from electrical outlet
before performing maintenance.
Your hard floor cleaner assembles quickly and
easily, no tools required.
Assemble Your Vac & Steam™
Insert the body into the foot until you hear
the locking tab click. Insert the handle into
the body of the unit until you hear a locking
tab click.
Special Features
Easy Touch Digital Controls
The fingertip power controls are located on the
front of the handle. Settings include:
(HI) – High Steam Use for durable floors or on
sticky messes. To turn steam on, press once.
Click again to turn steam off. Can be used
simultaneously with the vacuum function or
separately as a steam mop only.
(LO) – Low Steam Use on delicate floors or for
light, everyday cleaning. To turn steam on, click
once. Click again to turn steam off. Can be used
simultaneously with the vacuum function or
separately as a steam mop only.
NOTE: You must select a steam setting first
and then hold down the hand trigger to
produce steam.
(VAC) – Vacuum On/off switch. Can be used
simultaneously with either steam function or
separately as a stick vacuum only.
NOTE: All settings can be used alone or either
steam setting can be used simultaneously with
the vacuum setting.
Microfibre Mop Pads
Reusable microfibre mop pads are machine
washable and safe for virtually all hard floor
surfaces. The white microfibre pad is best for
everyday use on delicate flooring like sealed
hardwoods and laminate. The gray and white
striped pad can be used for scrubbing heavily
soiled floors and cleaning tougher messes.
WARNING
Do not plug in your hard floor cleaner
until you are familiar with all instructions
and operating procedures.
WARNING
Exercise extreme care when using the
Vac & Steam™ on hardwood floors.
Prolonged application of steam in one area
increases the risk of damage to the surface
treatment on timber floors. Test steam mop
in an inconspicuous area before mopping
a large area. The steam mop generates
hot steam, so move the unit continuously
when depressing the trigger. The trigger
does not need to be depressed at all times.
Regular foot traffic and direct sunlight will
wear down timber floor surface treatment,
making it more susceptible to steam
damage. Check with your timber floor
treatment and application specialist prior to
steam mop operation.
WARNING
Appliance will not pick up crayons,
marbles and other large objects.
Tip
» Do not attempt to use your
hard floor cleaner on the
steam setting without water
in the tank. You may hear a
knocking sound indicating
there is no water.
WARNING
Be sure to turn off vacuum mode if you
encounter liquid on the floor.

WARNING
Using Your Hard Floor
Vacuum and Steam Mop
To reduce the risk of electric shock, turn power switch off
and disconnect polarized plug from electrical outlet before
performing maintenance or troubleshooting checks.
The hard floor cleaner can be used as a stick
vacuum and a steam mop at the same time or
separately. For best results and time savings, use
the powerful vacuum to clear floor of dust and
small debris as you steam mop.
Your hard floor cleaner is designed to clean hard
flooring, such as ceramic tile, vinyl, marble, stone
and sealed hard wood floors. Use on waxed or
some unwaxed floors may result in a diminished
glossiness. The hard floor cleaner 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.
1. Fill the unit with water and then plug the unit
in and wait 30 seconds for it to heat up. Choose
the level of steam to clean your floor:
HI (for durable floors or sticky messes) or
LO (for delicate floors or every day cleaning).
2. Press steam trigger on the underside of the
handle to actuate steam.
3. Push the VAC switch down to turn on the
cyclonic vacuum.
2.
4. Begin cleaning by slowly moving the unit over
the floor surface while pressing the steam trigger
on the underside of the handle. Moisture on the
floor is normal when using in steam mode.
5. When the hard floor cleaner stops emitting
steam, turn the unit off (both steam mop and
vacuum functions) and unplug. Open the Easy
Fill opening of the water tank and use the water
cup to add more water to the tank. For best
results, water should be at room temperature.
Then close the Easy Fill opening, turn the unit
back on and continue cleaning.
NOTE: To be sure to sanitize an area of your
floor, use the microfibre cloth pads and slowly
and evenly stroke your steam mop back and
forth at least three times over the area using
continuous steam. For best results, remove the
pad and wash after use.
