How to Clean with Steam

To make the most of your steam cleaner the following tips will be helpful in making cleaning tasks easier, safer and more productive.

There are no set rules on how to clean with steam. With the vast array of attachments supplied with your machine it is quite possible to achieve the required results using different tools in the same time frame. Most operators find that they can do most tasks using a small selection of attachments. Do not be afraid of trying something new or attempting to clean something that you have not tried to clean before.

Check your manual for information about your model machine.

If you are in a hard-water area, you can use de-mineralized or distilled water to eliminate the possibility of creating hard water stains while you are cleaning fabrics and to prevent build up of mineral deposits around the valves in the system.

Important: Your Steam machine will work with hard water, but minerals will build up on the heating element and around the valves if you don’t take the time (once a month) to run a mixture of white vinegar and water through it. These mineral deposits can eventually cause the valves to stop working.
