Haan Fs20 Steam Cleaning Floor Mop and Sanitizer – How it Sanitizes

Water is put into the Haan FS 20 reservoir and it is then plugged into a standard electrical wall socket. The unit heats the water in the unit to 212 degrees Fahrenheit creating a steam. The steam is then emitted through the mop head. The design of the machine and the mop head when combined with their double microfiber mop head delivers enough steam to sanitize the floor surface in 1 second of contact time. The water reservoir is large enough to hold enough water to generate steam for 20 minutes of continuous floor cleaning.         

 One second can be seem like a short period of time but actually when cleaning the floor, a 1 second of contact time with the floor surface is actually deceiving longer than what it may seem but if you want to sanitize the floor, slow down slightly in the cleaning process to insure the Haan FS-20 is making a 1 second contact time with the floor. It may seem slow at first but moving at 1.5 to 2 seconds per step walking in a straight line while cleaning, will insure the floor is sanitized and cleaned.  


Note: Like any cleaning procedure using either manual or power tools/equipment, do not leave the Haan FS-20 Steam Floor Sanitizer in one spot for a prolong period of time. Leaving the unit in one spot for too long, may have an adverse effect on the floor. This is especially true with hardwood flooring (Even if the wood floor is sealed). Always completely read and understand the operating manual before using the unit. However with that being said a 1 second contact time with the floor to sanitize is an acceptable amount of time and should not damage the floor.
