Be thorough but move quickly. The dry steam vapour you are using will clean faster than you think it will. As a rule it is better to go twice over an area quickly than once slowly.
The temperature of the vapour at the tip of the nozzle is between 130 and 170c -depending on the brush you are using (having a towel wrapped over a brush raises the temperature).
WARNING:A towel clipped over a brush can get hot enough to burn you as long as vapour passes through it -but it will cool within seconds after the vapour is turned off.
Always start cleaning with low pressure and increase the pressure if the substance being cleaned requires it. Low or medium pressure is recommended for most cleaning tasks. This will extend the operating
time before the water tank requires re-filling.
The purpose of using towels or a fitted mop head with your steam system is to absorb moisture and dirt as a surface is cleaned. 100% white cotton terry cloth towels work best.Wash towels hot,
with strong detergent and bleach.
Always use dry towels. Wet ones will smear dirt.
USEFUL TIP: Using a scented fabric softener when washing the towels or mop heads will “per- fume” the air when the heated vapour goes through them later.
