Kenwood Steam Mop Instructions
Your Kenwood steam mop provides a means of cleaning floors without the use of potentially harmful cleaning chemicals. Cleaning products contribute to reduced indoor air quality, as well as the formation of smog outdoors, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
With proper use and care, your Kenwood steam mop will enable you to clean and sterilize your home while protecting the environment from these harsh chemicals.
Place the screw-end of the telescopic tube into the main portion of the Kenwood steam mop. Turn the tube clockwise to secure it to the mop head.
Twist the two ends of the tube counterclockwise to adjust its length. Pull the tube out to its desired length, then twist the ends clockwise to lock it.
Place the base of the steam mop on the floorcloth. Attach the floorcloth to the mop by securing the hook-and-loop straps.
Take off the mop's safety cap by turning it counterclockwise. Fill the provided measuring cup with water, and pour it into the tank. Use the mop's funnel to avoid making a mess. Pour another cup of water into the tank, and screw the safety cap clockwise to secure it.
Put the steam mop's head on the preheat tray. Plug the device's cord into an electric socket. Flip the switch, and wait for steam to appear from the mop.
Place the mop's head on the floor, and move it over the area you want to clean.
Refill the mop when no more steam is produced. Switch it off and unplug it before filling it as you did before. Heat the mop back up by putting it on the preheat tray, plugging it in, switching it on, and waiting for steam production to commence.
Care After Use
Switch the steam mop off, then unplug the appliance.
Remove the floorcloth, and launder it in the washing machine. Hang it to dry.
Wind the power cord around the mop's hooks.
Empty any remaining water from the mop's tank.
Refrain from leaving the steam mop in one location on your floor for more than 15 seconds, as this may create a white halo on the floor's surface. Vinegar will remove the mark if it does occur.
