The Evolution of the Steam Mop:

HAAN Introduces Revolutionary Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner

Lancaster, PA (October 15, 2012) – HAAN Corporation, the industry leader in steam-cleaning technology, today announced the introduction of the latest creation in its line of stylish, easy-to-use steam cleaners. The HAAN Multiforce™ SS-20 and HAAN Multiforce Pro™ SS-25 are first-of-their-kind steam mops, both with a high-speed scrubbing and buffing motion that works in tandem with 20 evenly dispersed steam jets. The units' CR-Motion™ technology is poised to revolutionize the steam category by enhancing the natural pull-and-push motion of standard steam mops by creating 850 counter-reciprocating movements per minute.

"Since its inception, HAAN has prided itself on being on the cutting edge of technology, and creating versatile products with the consumer's best interest in mind," said Romi Haan, President and Chief Executive Officer of HAAN Corporation. "Previously, steam cleaners didn't scrub and buff while they sanitized. The Multiforce™ and Multiforce Pro™ change that and provides the ultimate all-in-one cleaning product for virtually any surface inside and outside your home."

Multiforce Pro™ SS-25 is among the most adaptable of all HAAN products, capable of cleaning almost any surface, including tile, vinyl, hard wood, laminate, and carpet. The high velocity scrubbing motion even works on outdoor surfaces such as wooden deck boards and stone patios. It has two steam levels versus the Multiforce™ SS-20's one steam level, allowing users to choose a setting that is gentle enough for sensitive surfaces or powerful enough for tougher ones. Two reciprocating pads moving in opposite directions of one another provide a cleaning motion that, until now, has not been utilized with steam. Each pad has 10 steam jets that provide a continuous flow of 212°F steam, which kills 99.9% of common household germs, bacteria, and dust mites.

The HAAN Multiforce™ SS-20 and Multiforce Pro™ SS-25 will be available for purchase at the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $219.95 and $239.95, respectively, beginning October 15.
