technique of all floor surfaces vary. Therefore,
upright vacuums with rotating brushes, including
your SEBO, may damage some floor coverings or
surfaces. High-gloss hardwood floors, Berber
carpets, cushion vinyl, and some wool loop carpets
are particularly vulnerable to damage by rotating
brushes. When possible, consult the materials
supplied by your floor's manufacturer for
information on proper upkeep and cleaning. To ensure
that your new SEBO vacuum cleaner is compat1ible
with your floor, please test the vacuum cleaner on
each type of flooring surface in a small
inconspicuous area to determine if any damage
occurs. If damage occurs, stop using vacuum cleaner
As with all vacuum cleaners with rotating brushes,
holding the vacuum cleaner in a stationary position
on the floor for an extended period of time may
damage any type of flooring. Therefore, use a
normal, continuous, back-and-forth motion when the
vacuum is in use. When using the hose and
attachments, make sure the handle is in the upright,
locked position, and watch that the brush roller
does not remain in contact with the flooring
surface. Also, do not tilt the powerhead on to the
floor when using the hose. These situations can
cause marking or damage.
Do not re-use bags.
Do not wash filters.
Do not remove any screws.
Do not leave machine plugged-in when not in use.
Do not place brush head (powerhead) over rug /
