3.0 Cleaning with the steam cleaner GB
A steam cleaner is an efficient appliance for domes-
tic cleaning. The diagram below is a list of inspiration
showing for which cleaning tasks in normal everyday
life the steam cleaner will be of practical use. As
cleaning tasks vary from home to home, the list
should not be considered adequate, but examples of
how to get started with steam cleaning.
One of the advantages of a steam cleaner is that no
chemicals are used as the 140°C hot steam looses
filth and dirt. It is collected in a cloth mounted on the
brush or removed afterwards by means of a cloth.
An important advantage is that steam is disinfecting.
NOTE ! When starting a new cleaning job, you
should try on a hidden spot as in some cases the
steam may discolour and cause minor damage to
the surfaces to be cleaned. Soft surfaces can be
cleaned with the steam cleaner by holding the
brush at a suitable distance from the sensitive
surface (approx. 5-10 cm).
The steam volume is infinitely variable by means of
the steam button at top of the machine (3). Always
use as little steam as possible to save energy.
When cleaning soft objects always use as little
steam as possible.
