McCulloch MC-1275 Heavy-Duty Steam Cleaner Instructions

Updated November 21, 2016

The McCulloch MC-1275 Heavy-Duty Steam Cleaner is a commercial-grade steam cleaner that offers a water capacity of 1 1/2 litres, a boiler operating temperature of 121 degrees Celsius, 110-volt power, 12-foot power cord, an hour of use per tank and a set of accessories. The steam cleaner can be purchased in select hardware stores and online. Due to the extremely high temperatures of the water and steam during use, only adults should operate the steam cleaner.

Prepare the cleaning area by sweeping, vacuuming or wiping off excess dirt and debris. The steam cleaner can be used on hard floor surfaces, tile, slate, grout, appliances and fibreglass.

Open the water tank cap and fill the water tank with clean, cold water until full. Close the water cap firmly.

Plug the McCulloch steam cleaner into a power outlet, turn the steam to "On" and allow a couple minutes to heat up.

Squeeze the trigger and point the steam cleaner nozzle at the area to be cleaned. If you're cleaning large surfaces, attach the included large brush or towel to the handle first. Attach the included nozzle brush when cleaning grout, vents, stainless steel or other appliances.

Mop the steamed area with the attached steam cleaner towel, attached brush or a separate towel, if you're working on smaller surfaces.

Repeat in overlapping sections until the desired area is clean. Turn the steam cleaner "Off" and unplug it from the power source.

Allow the unit to cool thoroughly and empty the remaining water into a sink.

Wash the steam towel with liquid washing powder in the washing machine and let it air dry. Rinse the nozzle brush under running water and set aside to air dry.
