Vax launches Hard Floor Advance+ steam mop

Unlike traditional cleaning methods such as a mop and bucket, the power of steam is a fast, easy and effective way to clean any sealed hard floor in your home. The new Hard Floor Advance+ steam mop from Vax heats up in seconds and leaves floors so sparkling clean and fresh you’ll never want to use a conventional mop again. 

Unlike other steam mops on the market, only the Hard Floor Advance+ combines the triple cleaning action of hot steam, citrus-fresh detergent and a compact scrub brush head to tackle stubborn spots and stains. So now you can effortlessly scrub clean all the floors in your home without having to get down on your hands and knees again, or use a messy mop and bucket. You’ll feel satisfied that your floor really does look, smell and feel Vax clean.

The Vax Hard Floor Advance+ is ideal for cleaning a wide variety of sealed hard floor surfaces including tiles, lino, laminate and wood. The surface selector control lets you change floor types at the touch of a button, giving you just the right detergent and steam mix for each surface in your home so all your floors get the perfect clean. Its compact design and contoured floor head reach easily into tight corners, and for areas that need that extra bit of help simply use the scrub brush to lift away stuck on dirt and stains. A carpet glider attachment is also included, so you can refresh your carpets and rugs too. 

Lightweight and manoeuvrable, the Hard Floor Advance+ couldn’t be easier to use: simply fill it up with water, add the detergent and it heats up in just 15 seconds, providing up to 30 minutes of steam, so it’s quick and easy to clean any hard floor in your home. Vax’s specially formulated, environmentally friendly steam detergent breaks down grease and grime more effectively than just steam alone. It’s hygienic too, as it kills 99.9% of harmful bacteria for up to 7 days and leaves your home smelling citrus fresh long after you’ve finished cleaning.  

The Vax S3S+ Hard Floor Advance+ is available from all major retailers and direct from at RRP £99.99.

Other steam cleaners in the new range from Vax include handhelds, multifunction and compact cleaners, so you can harness the versatile cleaning power of steam on everything from showers and mirrors, tiles and grout, grills and BBQs, taps and sinks, windows, hobs and ovens, kitchen worktops, carpets and upholstery, clothes, soft furnishings and more!
