How long will it take for my steamer to arrive?
Steamers being delivered to UK mainland should arrive on the next working day provided you have ordered before 1pm GMT (on a weekday). International orders can take up to a week to arrive depending on location, however all products will be dispatched on the same day, provided you place the order before 1pm GMT (on a business day of course!).
All our products will have to be signed for.
Are there any materials you can’t steam?
Sadly, there are some fabrics to avoid steaming. We do not recommend steaming waxed jackets, suede or materials prone to melting.
Care should be taken with delicate fabrics like silk, chiffon, sheer or velvet. Avoid letting the steamer head touch such fabrics and keep the head moving. To avoid damaging print or embellishment, perhaps try steaming the garment inside-out.
Care should be taken when used on leather, avoiding allowing the material to become damp.
If you’re ever unsure, cautiously test the steamer on a discreet part of the fabric first.
Always check fabric care labels for advice prior to steaming.
Can I use any water?
Though we recommend using distilled or demineralised water, normal tap water may be used. This carries the risk of more sediment buildup, so occasionally empty the unit.
Do not allow the water to become stale. Old water containing mineral buildup or mildew may cause stains or musty odours. Follow the descaling instructions in the manual if necessary.
Never use scented or starched water, as they could clog up your steamer and cause malfunction.

How long will the steamer produce steam for without refilling water?
The F-1000 professional garment steamer has a large 2.2 litre tank, and so can produce steam for 65 minutes before the tank has to be refilled.
The F-1400 professional garment steamer has a super large 3.2 litre tank, and so can produce steam for 100 minutes before the tank has to be refilled!
Are Fridja steamers portable?
The F-1000 and F-1400 professional garment steamers must be plugged in, however the wheels allow easy manoeuvrability.
Also, they are light so you could transport them easily. This is especially handy for professionals needing a steamer on locations!
Can I use my steamer on garments I’m wearing?
Don’t you dare! Hot steam can burn!
