BATHROOMS

Toilets

  • Use the long steam lance or ferrule and run it under the toilet rim.
  • Spray the steam over the whole toilet inside and out.
  • Wipe down the toilet seat with a clean cloth or paper towel. You can use the squeegee tool with vac on flat surface areas if desired, but make sure to clean attachment well before using it on other areas.

Urinals

  • Use the brass detail brush or stainless steel scourer to give the urinal a good scrub. You may want to use the extension handle or two so not to get too close. You will find this has most likely never been properly cleaned before.
  • No chemicals required.

Taps and sinks

  • Using the detail nozzle spray around the base of the taps, the dirt will be easily blasted out.
  • Use the nylon or brass detail brush to scrub the tap handles, spouts and drains.
  • You can then use the squeegee tool to steam and vac the vanity top. Or use a cloth over the triangle head for non vac models.

Windows or mirrors

  • If cleaning glass with vapor for the first time, clean with vapor squeegee two times (low pressure).
  • First, to remove all old cleaning chemical residue from the pores of the glass.
  • There after, only one time for regular cleaning.
  • Remove leftover water with the squeegee or squeegee and vac.
  • For smaller windows use the triangular brush with a towel (low heat i.e. let it cool slightly first).

Auto hand driers

  • You can use the nylon detail brush to clean the push button. You will find that has never been cleaned before so it will make a very nice difference.

Fibreglass Fixtures

  • Bath Tubs: Use the round nylon brush -low pressure – Scrub bottom of tub in all directions with a non-abrasive detergent containing bleach. After cleaning, repeat the action with a cleaning/whitening agent so the whitening particles can enter the pores of the surface. Estimate 20-30 minutes per tub on the initial cleaning to completely remove all body oils and soap scum from the pores of the fiberglass.
  • Repeat every 2- 3 months.

Porcelain Fixtures

  • Use only nylon detail brushes as dictated by the space -low pressure. Use only very light hand pressure on the brush. It may be necessary to wrap a towel over the brush if it appears the bristles are leaving scratch marks.
  • For rust stains use a non-scouring detergent (without beach if the porcelain is coloured).
  • Or mix your own rust remover by creating a paste of salt and lemon juice. Use the Nylon circular brush. Caution: It is possible to scratch porcelain with the nylon bristles on the brushes and to discolour some enamel paints with too much heat.
  • Use only a low vapor setting and light surface pressure.
  • Wrap a towel over the brush and re-clean the surface if scratching occurs.

Soap Scum

  • Soap scum dissolves almost immediately under a combination of heat and moisture.
  • Use a brush (small brush head) without a towel or with a towel clipped over it – medium pressure – and move quickly. Rinse the surface with a small amount of water afterwards or go back over it once more with a clean towel.
  • Moving too slowly can dry out the soap scum and cause it to granulate on the surface.
  • The surface will have a gritty feel. If this happens, apply vapor to the surface with the open brush again and re clean.

Note: Soap scum sometimes will develop a hard surface from water born minerals. If this is the case, use the brush with no towel first to break up this surface – or spray and wipe first with a mild acid, such as vinegar or lemon juice to soften the minerals.

Cleaning Around Electrical Outlets or Switch Plates

  • Use a Brush with a towel wrapped around it and low pressure steam.
  • Wipe quickly to clean away dust and dirt from the outlet.
  • Do not blow vapor directly into the front of an outlet or switch plate.
