Karcher sc5

After using this around the house for various things all I can say is why didn't I buy one sooner. It's an overall great product for just about anything, it even managed to remove an oil stain in a beige carpet that I couldn't remove using various carpet cleaners. It's a good size, similar to a cylinder vacuum so easy to store. The various attachments are great as that gives you the option to do various different tasks around the house, I would say that if you use it around paint and silicone be careful as it will remove it if not careful, there is that much pressure.

Karcher SC5 Steam Cleaner review.

The Karcher SC5 Steam Cleaner is supplied with a generous 1.5l water tank, which probably provides more steam than the Flying Scotsman could ever muster (well seems like it anyway!), it's power makes for a hard to beat product on the market. Brilliant, lightweight, mobile, powerful, easy to use, rapid warm up & hygienic chemical free cleaning are all good phrases to describe this machine. You can clean all manner of things around the house with your Karcher SC5, including your floors, baths, ovens, hobs, worktops, carpets, sinks, alloy wheels, engines, windows and much much more, this is so versatile you're bound to find some unique way to use it. The good thing with using this steam cleaner is that you no longer need to buy chemicals to clean, the steam that comes out the nozzle will kill all bacteria and germs leaving the area fresh as a daisy and clean enough to eat your dinner off it. Now what bad points can i find with this product? Well not much to be honest, it's a brilliantly thought out machine, with all accessories having an onboard storage area, so you don't have to keep the box to keep all the little pieces together in case you lose them. Now for the only bad point, it's the fact Karcher only give you one terry cloth and one micro fibre cloth in the box, now if i'm buying from a premium brand, i'd expect more than that to be honest, but then again if they are hard wearing maybe one of each will do? But it would be nice to have 2 of each that way while one set are in the wash you can affix the spare set so you can carry on using it. So all in all a brilliant piece of kit, lightweight and mobile enough for anyone to use, easy to set up and run, plus whenever you clean anything you have the knowledge that you are doing it without nasty chemicals which will in turn save you some money i suppose. This is definitely recommended for anyone that wants the opportunity to really make sure their home is as clean and hygienic as it could possibly be. If you want to watch my Karcher SC5 being set up and demo’ed please follow this link: https://youtu.be/7OJDDfZYa04

Pros: Chemical free cleaning, Easy to use, Hygienic, Lightweight, Powerful Cons: Only one of each cleaning cloth

Karcher SC5 steam cleaner!

I absolutely love this cleaner! On first appearances i thought it was a little big and i worried about storing it but there is clever little holders to store all the parts which makes it nice and compact for storing.It is relatively lightweight and easy to move around the rooms when in use,it glides effortlessly.It is very powerful and with a blast of hot steam and a little scrub with the carpet attachement it lifted 2 heavy stains from my carpet...no chemicals needed! With the attachements that are included i have cleaned my whole house...hard floors,carpets,windows,kitchen and bathroom.I love the safety feature that allows any pressure buildup inside the machine to release safely.There is also a child safety lock which i love because i have a very curious 2 year old who wants to try everything! Hands down this is the best steam cleaner i have ever owned and although for us it is quite expensive it is well worth the money and you get what you pay for! Top marks Karcher!
