Vax unveils Steam Fresh Combi Multi-function steam mop

Great Britain’s leading steam cleaner brand1 has created its best performing multi-function steam cleaner yet. The Steam Fresh Combi steam mop with detachable handheld combines the power of steam with detergent to clean 37% better than steam alone.2

More and more families are now switching onto steam cleaners, as they’re a quick and easy way of cleaning almost any surface in your home. Steam mops are great for homes with hard floors, because they heat up in seconds and leave floors hygienically clean and smelling fresh, while handheld steamers give you the flexibility to clean a huge variety of surfaces.

Created in Birmingham by Vax’s British design team, the Steam Fresh Combi makes it so quick and easy to blast away stubborn, dried on dirt, grease and grime that once you start you won’t want to stop. An easy one-touch release separates the handheld from the mop, allowing you to steam whatever you want, whenever you want. The lightweight handheld steamer is ergonomically designed for easy and effortless use, so you’ll be cleaning places you never thought you would. Its 10-piece tool kit lets you tackle everything from windows and showers, grills and BBQs, hobs and ovens, carpets and upholstery, clothes and soft furnishings, tiles and grout. You’ll never be searching for the right tool for the right job again, as they are stored neatly and securely on board the machine.

The Steam Fresh Combi combats two of the most common problems with cleaning hard floors, the difficult dirt that gathers at the edges and floors that take too long to dry. The triangular mop head gets into tight corners and right up to the edges, while Vax’s unique 8-point steam dispersion system distributes the steam evenly for better coverage and quick drying times, so you can get right back on your floors. Within the floorhead is a compact scrub brush that’s great for loosening really stubborn, dried-on dirt effortlessly. The self-attaching washable microfibre cleaning pads use millions of individual fibres to ensure stubborn dirt is captured whilst you clean, leaving your floors streak-free and sparkling.

Utilising Vax’s TwinTank Technology, the Steam Fresh Combi combines the power of steam with our environmentally friendly steam detergents to clean 37% better than steam alone2 and leaves your home smelling fresh. This combination of steam and detergent kills 99.9% of harmful germs and bacteria for up to 7 days3, so it keeps on protecting your floors long after you’ve finished cleaning. Vax’s efficient engineering means you don’t have to wait to get steaming – just 20 seconds from switching on you’re ready to go. Unlike other steam cleaners, its extra long 8-metre cable means you can easily clean larger areas too.

The Vax Steam Fresh Combi multi-function steam cleaner is available from major retailers and direct from priced at RRP £179.99, including a 10-piece tool kit, two microfibre pads, a carpet glider and Vax Steam Detergent.
