Tiled walls

  • Use large brush with towel or the Steam Mop head with microfiber cloth on – low heat.
  • Move quickly with smooth strokes.

Painted walls

  • First, look carefully at the condition of the paint itself. If it is thin or was a very cheap grade of paint originally, cleaning it with anything may cause the paint to dissolve and wipe off.
  • For heavy stains or extremely dirty walls mist the towel with a light detergent before cleaning the wall. Follow up with a clean towel. Change towels often.
  • Caution: Water based paint of any kind can be removed with a vapor cleaning system just by applying higher heat and moving slowly. The paint will absorb into the towel.


  • Vinyl or normal paper. Use a pad inserted under the towel with the triangular or rectangular brushes.
  • If no pad insert is available, clip towels over the rectangular brush to prevent bristles from poking their way through the towel while you are cleaning the wall (low pressure).
  • Use smooth, rapid strokes. Spray light detergent on the towel to clean greasy stains.
  • Go back over the area with a clean towel after cleaning with detergent.

NOTE: Use only low pressure and clean quickly while you are cleaning any kind of wallpaper.
