Product information and directions for use

  • This appliance is intended for household use only.
  • Clean the caster wheels periodically. The dirt accumulating on the caster wheels may prevent smooth rolling.
  • Roll the vacuum cleaner carefully over doorsteps and uneven surfaces to prevent excessive splashing of the water inside the tank. This could result in spilling a small amount of water.

Static electricity

In the process of vacuuming some surfaces in areas of low air humidity, the device may become electrically charged.
It is a natural phenomenon – it does not damage the device, and it is not considered to be a fault.

In order to minimize the phenomenon, we recommend you to:

  • discharge the device by touching metal items in the room with the pipe,
  • increase air humidity in the room,
  • use widely available antistatic agents.

Appliance features

The vacuum cleaner is designed to remove more than 2.5 liters of liquid, but it also vacuums dry surfaces and removes dust, fibers, threads, and lint. The vacuum cleaner also features a wet-cleaning function by spraying and extraction, ie. by covering the surface to be cleaned with water and detergent solution, and then removing it along with the impurities by the airflow due to suction generated inside the appliance.
