Prepping your Fortador Steam Cleaner for winter storage

When It's Needed

If you are not going to use your Fortador during winter time you will need to prep it for long storage, we highly recommend to store unit in heated place and avoid keeping it below freezing point. Water expands 10% on freezing and can dramatically damage your steamer that will costs a lot of time and money on repair.
