Due to the automatically driven rollers - scrubbing is a thing of the past. The result? Perfectly clean floors that dry in an instant.

The hard floor cleaner saves you valuable time across the entire floor cleaning process: since there is no need for vacuuming beforehand, cleaning times are halved.

20% better cleaning performance**
Thanks to the automatically driven rollers, the hard floor cleaner moves over the floor almost by itself and, with 500 revolutions per minute, completes many wiping movements in just one pass. This allows you to achieve a more hygienic and more effective result in comparison to a conventional wiping mop.
