What is Moppy?
Moppy is the innovative solution for cleaning all types of floors and vertical surfaces: thanks to its dual function it captures dust with its electrostatic cloth and cleans and sanitizes with its hot steam-soaked cloth.
I can not remove stains
Moppy removes dirt and germs with its hot steam-charged cloth; if the effectiveness decreases it is likely that the cloth is drying or cooling so we suggest you return it to the base for a new steam charge.
The brush does not slide on the floor
The microfiber cloths provided with Moppy produce the perfect grip to remove and trap dirt from floors and vertical surfaces whilst, at the same time, guaranteeing maximum smoothness; if the cloth is not sliding then it is too dry, so we suggest you to return to the base for a new steam charge.

What is the difference between Moppy and a steam mop?
Moppy is a cordless mop that allows maximum freedom of movement. It is lightweight, agile and has a height-adjustable telescopic handle. The cleaning plate is thin and has a large surface area that reaches even the most difficult spaces. Moppy reaches all places and also cleans vertical surfaces. Most steam mops are suitable only for cleaning floors. Moppy also has a dust-catching function using the electrostatic cloths. Steam mops have a limited working range due to the length of their cables; they dispense steam directly onto each surface.
What is the difference between Moppy and a steam cleaner?
Moppy is practical and easy to prepare, so is suitable for daily cleaning. Steam cleaners generate powerful high-pressure steam thanks to their boilers, but require time (even if minimal) to prepare and heat. Normally a steam cleaner is equipped with multiple accessories for cleaning different types of surfaces (toilets, hobs, tile grouting, upholstery and mattresses) Steam cleaners deliver steam directly onto surfaces eliminating even the most stubborn stains for a deep cleaning.

When should I go back to the charging base?
Moppy's base has a double function: recharging the steam cloth and eliminating germs and bacteria collected from the surface.
