Spring Cleaning with Go-Electrical

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015


 Our Spring Cleaning offers are online now.

Here at Go-Electrical we know how important it is to have a lovely, clean house but we also know that cleaning isn’t necessarily what you want to be doing when the sun is finally beginning to shine again (sshhhh don’t scare it). We have looked through all our cleaning products and selected some of our most effective cleaning and laundry appliances to help you get that Spring Clean satisfaction. Here’s a closer look at three of the products:

AEG-ATT7920BP-Aptica-Pet-Cylinder-Vacuum-Cleaner-BlueThe AEG Aptica Pet cylinder vacuum is specially designed for pet owners who have to tackle pet hair in their homes. That is battle that can be won with the help of the Aptica’s Pet Turbo nozzle, purpose built to lift hair from furniture, floors and clothing. This vacuum can also help stay on top of any annoying odours in the household as it comes with a special carbon HEPA filter system, which removes up to 99% of allergens.

Samsung VU10F40SBDD Motion Sync Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner

The Samsung Motion Sync Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner is designed to make vacuuming your home as hassle free as possible, with it’s ‘Motion Sync’ design, this is probably the most maneuverable vacuum you offer! The unit’s HEPA filtration also helps to remove dust and dirt, however that isn’t all it does. The specially designed filter system is there to capture and hold air-borne allergens and those pesky dust particles, helping to keep your household air hygienically clean.


Lastly for this blogpost, the Rowenta silence steam generator iron makes ironing out creases that bit quicker and easier. Rowenta’s own microsteam 400 stainless steel soleplate means this is a high quality bit of kit, designed for maximum steam output. This allows the the iron to produce 120g of steam per minute, meaning you will be able to easily glide through any pile of ironing you’ve accumulated and wave goodbye to all those creases. Steam generator irons are much more powerful than a standard steam iron, by creating such larger amounts of steam, which pumps constantly and consistently through the iron’s soleplate, they allow you to get through the ironing all the more quickly.

 So have a peruse of our offers, get the house spotless, then get outside and enjoy the Spring!

Exclusive, Dynamic – New Polti products

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

The popularity of steam cleaning is rapidly growing in the UK thanks to a number of different factors, and this means that new steam cleaners are constantly being launched on to the market. Here, at Go-Electrical, we prefer one steam cleaner brand over any other, and that is Polti. Regularly featured on home shopping channels, Polti Steam Cleaners are one of Go-Electrical’s biggest sellers.

Following on from the success of the Evolution and Edition models launched last year, and the newest additions, the Flash and Mop, which were launched in February, Polti are adding two more steam cleaners to their range. Unfortunately, they are also discontinuing some of the existing models, but I wouldn’t be too worried because the new models are so much better.

The Vaporetto Dynamic, and Vaporetto Forever Exclusive will fit nicely into the top of the Polti range. The most expensive of the steam cleaners before reaching the Lecoaspira Steam Vacuum models, these two new additions are perfect for people who have used a steam cleaner before and want to upgrade, or for someone who will use a steam cleaner on a very regular basis for extended periods of time.

The two models are robost in design, and have very similar specifications, but the thing that sets the Vaporetto Forever Exclusive apart from all the other Polti steam cleaners is that it features a continuous refill function (indicated by the ‘Forever’ part in its name), just like some of the Lecoaspira models. This means no more waiting for the water tank to depressurise before being able to refill, so you can just keep going with your cleaning tasks. This feature is a real time-saver, believe me!

For more details about the new models, keep reading;

Clean your act up for the New Year

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Every January we make resolutions that we promise to keep, and two weeks in to the new year the majority of people have already broken or are on the verge of giving up. Whether it be laziness or lack of belief it happens time and time again. Well, this year I am more determined than ever to keep my resolutions (at least past Valentine’s Day anyway), and Polti are going to help me with one of them.

Resolution: To clean the bathroom at least once a week

I don’t know about you, but I hate cleaning the bathroom – I hate it more than I hate cleaning the oven. It is a task that I try and put off as much as possible, or until the sink becomes so coated in toothpaste that it is no longer white but blue. So, I have decided that enough is enough. I have had enough of the rubber gloves and cream cleaning fluid, and using an old toothbrush on the grouting – I am going to invest in a Polti Steam Cleaner to hopefully banish my bathroom cleaning blues.

There are 19 different models of steam cleaner in the Polti range – one to suit every budget. All I need to do now is decide which model is best for me…lets take a closer look.

Under £50:

Polti Vaporettino Lux steam cleaner

A compact handheld steam cleaner with a 500ml pressurized boiler which turns 1000W of power into 3 bar of pressure. It has a cord length of 2.58 metres but is only 28.3cm tall so it is very easy to use. As standard it comes with; a brass brush, cloth, steam grout tool, steam lance, steam nozzle, a round brush, steam spatula and a window tool.

Under £100:

Polti Vaporetto Comfort steam cleaner

A small, manoeuvrable steam cleaner on wheels available in red or silver. The boiler volume is 1.6L and creates 3 bar of pressure, and up to 85g of steam per minute. It has onboard accessory storage and as standard comes with; small accessory kit, small accessory adaptor, large brush, small brush adaptor, cloths, extension tubes, filling bottle and funnel, a small brush and a window tool.

Under £200:

Polti Vaporetto Evolution steam cleaner

One of the new additions to the Polti family, the Evolution has a 1.7L capacity and creates 4 bar of pressure, with the capacity to output up to 110g of steam per minute. The cord is 4 metres long and the three wheels allow easy movement around the house. Standard accessories are; an accessory bag, cloths and socks, demo DVD, 120 degree tool, large floor brush, a small brush, a window kit and extension tubes.

Over £200:

Polti Vaporetto Eco Pro 3000 Lux steam cleaner

A larger machine with a 2.9L boiler, 2000W of power and 4 bar of pressure. It comes with a long 5m cord, low water indicator and an automatic cable winder. As standard the Eco Pro 3000 Lux comes with almost every accessory that will every be needed; 120 degree concentrator, accessory bag, cloths and socks, demo DVD, extension hoses, floor brush, pressure lance, small brush, squeegee kit and a triangular brush.

As I am not quite at the point where I want to steam clean my upholstery or carpets, and having very little storage space, I think I will opt for the handheld Vaporettino Lux cleaner as the grouting tool will definitely make the old toothbrush redundant, and it will hopefully speed up the cleaning time of the most dreaded room in the house.

What model will you choose to be your new best friend around the house, and deal with those cleaning tasks that you just can’t face? Take a look at the full Polti range at Go-Electrical’s Polti pages.

New Steam Cleaners from Polti

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Polti have added two new steam cleaners to their already extensive range, and of course Go-Electrical have them at a really great price!

The new cleaners are compact (only 34 x 34 x 32.5 in size) and look very cute. The Polti Vaporetto Edition is in a crisp white colour and produces 3.5 bar of pressure and up to 80g of steam per minute. It comes with a large floor brush, a small brush, and extension tubes so you can get steam cleaning right away.

The Polti Vaporetto Evolution, the bright green cleaner, produces 4 bar of pressure, and up to 110g of steam per minute. It has a little more oomph than the Edition, and it comes with a few more accessories too. Included is the large floor brush, the small brush and the extension tubes as with the Edition, but the Evolution also comes with a 120 degree tool for getting into tight spots and a window cleaning kit, which consists of a great squeegee to really get your windows sparkling clean.

Apart from the differences pointed out above the two steam cleaners are basically the same – they both have;

  • 4 castors for easy maneuverability
  • A low water level light indicator
  • A steam ready light indicator
  • A parking system for anchoring the brush to the appliance

Both the Edition and Evolution have a boiler volume of 1.7L, and the maximum power of the machines is 2250W, with the boiler power coming in at 1500W.

If you are looking for a reliable Polti steam cleaner that is more robust than the Vaporetto 950, the new Edition or Evolution could be the steam cleaner for you.

Top Tips For Looking After Your Polti Cleaner

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

polti logoPolti steam cleaners offer superior cleaning results using a super heated steam system. The steam is heated to 120C*, which means it is able to kill 99.9% of bacteria without the use of chemicals.  And because they only use water Polti steam cleaners are cheap and efficient to run. To keep your Polti steam cleaner running efficiently we’ve got some top tips

Tip 1 – Use Kalstop

Polti cleaners are really easy to use and look after, the only thing you should regularly add to the water is Kalstop. Kalstop helps to reduce the build up of limescale by leaving a protective seal around the boiler and accessories which helps steam flow better and keeps appliances running efficiently.

Kalstop also gives you a better clean because it removes the oxygen from the water, making the steam drier.

Polti recommend using 1 capsule of Kalstop per litre of water in the traditional boiler. or 1 capsule per 5 litres of water for continuous refill boilers (a litre of water creates 1000L of steam, about an hour of cleaning).

(If you have a model with an LCD screen then look out for the spanner symbol, it usually means that Kalstop is needed)

You can buy Kalstop for £9.99 for 20 capsules. Visit the Go-Electrcial website to buy Kalstop.

Tip 2 – Rinse out the tank

Rinsing the tank out periodically will remove the sediment of the lime scale at the bottom of the tank. Getting rid of it will keep your cleaner running smoothly.

Tip 3 – Watch out for steam escaping

If steam is escaping from the cap it could be due to a white disk (“polo mint”) needing to be replaced or a washer that needs replacing. It doesn’t happen very often but they do break down over time.

*Pocket and easy models heat steam to 110° killing 78% of bacteria.
