For efficient cleaning of upholstered surfaces without the use of a spinning brush the unique Sofa Tool is included in the CVA360U attachment set. The Sofa Tool, also known as the Pet Hair Tool, offers wide directional lint pads to clean and groom upholstered furniture without the risk of damage to softer fabrics. Lint remover strips on both sides of the air channel easily remove lint, pet hair and stubborn clingy soils. The sofa tool give you the muscle you need in a vacuum tool to clean especially difficult types of coverings such as velour and micro-suede.
The Sofa Tool works by using directional surface cleaning pads to groom and clean with your vacuums airflow. Each pad has a unique one-way removal system that lifts clingy lint and pet hair while pulling the nozzle, and releases the soil into the airstream when pushing the nozzle. With a surface cleaning pad on both sides of the air channel you clean with every movement of the tool. The Sofa Tool is easy to use on all covered surfaces including car seats and bed coverings thanks to it's side air vents that let air continuously move through the nozzle without sealing against the surface.
A full 9" in width, the sofa tool is both larger and more effective than standard upholstery nozzles. The cleaning pads are simple to remove and clean if they become soiled and the entire tool is top-rack dishwasher safe. A true must-have for those with indoor pets and upholstered furniture and homes with delicate fabric used in furniture, bedding or curtains.
The RD285 Quick Clean Brushless nozzle is a combination floor cleaning tool suitable for both hard surfaces and rugs. This unique floor nozzle is unlike most others and uses no bristles. If you like to vacuum quickly the RD285 is the best floor nozzle for moving through the job fast. With no bristle to clog with hair and dirt you will never need to stop while cleaning your floor to unstuff your floor tool. The RD285 uses it's special design to focus airflow in a unique pattern to mimic the function of bristles in a regular floor nozzle.
The International Forum Design Award winning vacuum nozzle has many unique and thoughtful features including large easy rolling rear wheels, tilting and swiveling nozzle connector, ultra-low profile design, embedded thread & lint lifters and of course the multi-purpose design that allows use on hard floors as well as rugs. A set of flexible sealing blades flank the intake which forces airflow to concentrate across the floors surface.
Using airflow design to duplicate the function of bristles allows the RD285 to clean without a build-up of debris at the nozzle and prevent bull-dozing. The brushless design also makes the RD285 uniquely well suited to cleaning homes with indoor pets and their troublesome shed fur. The bristle free RD285 can gulp down mounds of fur without clogging.
The RD285's combination function uses the same cleaning dynamics to vacuum rugs with airflow velocity which quickly lifts soils from carpet fibers using the sealing blades to concentrate airflow on the surface. To vacuum clingy soils, including hair and fur, the RD285 employs two directional thread lifters. Each strip cleans in one direction and release the debris into the airflow in the other direction, self cleaning on each pass as you vacuum. The thread lifters allow you to scrub trouble spots on rugs that hold clingy soils.
The RD285 is an excellent addition to a powered carpet cleaning nozzle in homes with hard floors mixed with wall-to-wall carpets. For homes with primarily hard floors the RD285 can provide a quick-clean nozzle for all surface cleaning with the added function of rug vacuuming for quick clean ups. For those with indoor pets the brushless RD285 is particularly well designed to deal with copious amounts of fur our friends can leave behind.
At just over eleven inches wide the RD285 is comfortable to use in home with large open floor plans, though the highly maneuverable nozzle connector combined with brushless intake and fast wheels help the RD285 to excel in smaller and tight spaces that seem to attract so many dust bunnies.
There are nearly as many different kinds of floor nozzle available today as their are types of floors. The selection of floor nozzles in the CVA360U kit is important as our homes have increasingly more hard floor surfaces. The third floor nozzle included in the CVA360U Souverän Ultimate attachment set started a revolution in floor tools when it was introduced to the market. The Dry Mop Floor Nozzle has quickly become one of the most desired add-on attachments of existing and new central vacuum users. It's a "dry dust-mop" in a vacuum tool that captures and removes dust and small debris from all those hard to reach places while simultaneously polishing floors with an innovative fringe design. The Dry Mop Floor Nozzle features a cut-away front to let the dirt into the large nozzle orifice where the airflow can carry it away to the collection bin.
The Dry Mop Floor Nozzle combined with suction of your vacuum system provides excellent cleaning results on hard floors of all types, particularly those that will also benefit from polish action of the mop fringe. Hardwood and honed/polished stone floors will show a brighter finish when cleaned over standard vacuuming with a brush, as will all smooth hard floors including tile, laminate and polished concrete. The Dry Mop Floor Nozzle also cleans where no regular floor brush can. The fringe of the floor nozzle easily cleans against the baseboards pulling dust and debris down from above floor level and out from the corners.
The Dry Mop Floor Nozzle was recently updated with a new innovative MicroFiber fringe cleaning pad. Adding the power of MicroFiber has increased spot removal effectiveness and overall efficiency. The exclusive fringe design works more effectively with the vacuum system, provides much more surface contact than a flat pad and still provides open space for airflow to remove debris collected by the nozzle. The new MicroFiber fringe also works great with spray cleaning using a small amount of your favourite neutral floor cleaner in a damp-mop method to pick up sticky messes and add a streak-free shine to your floor. When the MicroFiber mop head becomes laden with dirt and soil that is not pulled into the vacuum, cleaning the mop head is easy. The fringed MicroFiber mop head can be removed from the vacuum nozzle by simply pulling the Velcro attached mophead from the base and dropping it in the washer. It couldn't be easier or faster to maintain the MicroFiber Dry Dust Mop which makes cleaning your hard floors faster than before. And the reusable design offers you a money saving green alternative to disposable floor wipes. Each MicroFiber pad is good for hundreds of washings and thousands of uses.
