    Significance and Use

    The user must understand how to operate and maintain the equipment to achieve satisfactory cleaning results. Since the manufacturers are the prime source of this information, it is their responsibility to provide instructions for specific models. Clear, concise, simple (but complete) instructions for the safe use and maintenance will encourage users to read the information and follow proper procedures. This will increase user satisfaction, minimize safety problems, and decrease complaints.
