ATTENTION
Illustration
The device can only vacuum dried dirt and liquids (max.
140 ml).
Illustration
Brush or vacuum the floor before starting work. This re-
moves dirt and loose particles from the floor before the
wet cleaning commences.
Before use, check the floor for water consistency at sus-
pect areas. Do not clean water-sensitive coatings, such
as untreated cork floors (moisture ingress is possible
which may damage the floor).
Illustration
To avoid fresh footprints on the freshly-wiped floor, work
backwards towards the door.
 Clean the floor by moving the appliance back and
forth at a similar speed as if you were vacuum
cleaning.
 If the floor is especially dirty, let the appliance glide
slowly across the floor.
Pressure does not need to be exerted on the de-
vice.
 For scope of delivery of the roller pads in grey and
yellow: Both roller pads have the same functionali-
ty, they can be used for different areas of applica-
tion (colour distinction, e.g. for kitchen and bath-
room).
ATTENTION
After switching on the appliance, the cleaning rollers will
begin to rotate. Hold the handle tight to prevent the ap-
pliance from moving forwards by itself.
Make sure the fresh water tank is filled with water and
the waste water tank is fitted in the appliance.
Illustration
 To switch on the appliance press the on/off switch.
 Move the unit back and forth several times until the
rollers are sufficiently moistened.

ATTENTION
The rollers should be washed under a tap or cleaned in
a washing machine after each use to prevent accumu-
lation of detergent residues in the rollers that can lead
to the formation of foam over time.
The fresh water tank and waste water tank must be
emptied if the device is laid on the floor in order to re-
move the rollers. This prevents liquids from escaping
from the tanks while the device is lying on the floor.

or
 Wash the cleaning rollers in the washing machine
up to 60°C.
ATTENTION
Do not use any soft detergents when cleaning in the
washing machine. This avoids causing damage to the
microfibres. It also preserves the high performance lev-
els of the cleaning rollers.
The cleaning rollers are not suitable for the tumble dry-
er.
Figure to
 Once cleaned, place the rollers on the cleaning sta-
tion storage and leave them to air dry.
 Drying time can be minimized by wringing out the
rollers beforehand.
 Also clean the floor head cover and waste water
tank if the device is not going to be used further.
 Clean the roller drive with a moist cloth.
ATTENTION
The use of unsuitable cleaning and disinfecting agents
can damage the appliance and will void the warranty.
Note
Add cleaning or disinfecting agent as required.
 When dosing the detergent and care product, fol-
low the manufacturer's dosage instructions.
 To prevent foaming, first fill the fresh water tank
with water then cleaning or disinfecting agent.
 To avoid exceeding the "MAX" fill level on the fresh
water tank, leave room for the cleaning or disinfect-
ing agent when filling with water.
