Setting  Up the S6S

Setting it up is as easy as fixing the head to body. It has variable hot vapour setting that enables you to clean all types of floors.

  • To use it, fill in the water tank and the detergent with the supplied funnel and jug the screw the safety cap.
  • Press the on button and then wait for 12 minutes to generate sufficient hot vapour that will last for 40 minutes same as that of best selling Karcher sc4 steam cleaner.
  • To clean the Vax s6s after use you can either wait for ten minutes for the hot vapour to cool down or press the hot vapour trigger to release all the steam till the safety cap is loosened.
  • When cleaning the hot vapour trigger should be used in a controlled manner such that you release short bursts of hot vapour followed by dry strokes to avoid your floors being wet.

Having wet floors may also be due to not allowing the water in the tank to be heated to the required level to make adequate hot vapour. For caked in dirt use sustained bursts of hot vapour. Tough stains may require pre-treatment. Keep in mind that this gadget is designed to trap deep seated dirt to the surfaces of the microfiber pad but does not actually sweep the dirt away. In this case, to achieve gleaming results you have to wipe the cleaned surface with a soft cloth.

This also explained why the manufacturer supplies two soft cloths when you first buy the machine.

  • 3 pieces of extension hose for tight spaces, long reach and total flexibility.
