Karcher SC 5.800 C steam cleaner review

Thursday, 27 June 2013

When I found out I was pregnant with Liv, we bought a steam floor cleaner in preparation, we liked the idea that we could kill germs on the living room floor without using harmful chemicals.
 
Trouble was, it leaked, great big puddles randomly. So when I was asked to review a Karcher steam cleaner I was a little dubious.
 
I really needn't have been, it is BRILLIANT!
 
 
 
I have been steaming everything I can, starting with the laminate flooring, grouting in the hallway and plastic front door.
It is simple to set up as everything slots together with a click and lock system, easy to operate as it just has one dial for settings and a simple trigger system to release the steam. it is also very easy to manoeuvre with the 360 degree rotating front wheel.
 
 
My favourite features are the on board accessory storage to save you having to dig out pieces when you need them and also the child safety lock.
 
 














 

 
 
What's in the box:
 
* Steam cleaner unit
 * 2 extension poles
* Lamellae floor tool with cloth
* Hand tool with bristles and cloth
* Small round detail brush
* Detail nozzle
* Descaling tablets
* Hose


As you can see below our hallway had gotten quite mucky during all of the recent rain, this is the area where dirty shoes go and the pushchair is wheeled in and out too so it gets dirty quickly. I won't point out which parts I had steamed as I think it is fairly obvious!!

 
Usually I have to bleach this and scrub with a wire brush, but with a little elbow grease and some steam this is the result, I was amazed!

I would whole heartedly reccommend this cleaner to family and friends.
