Christmas Review 2017: Karcher FC5 Hard Floor Cleaner

Got the family coming round at Christmas and trying to get your home in to tip top shape before they arrive? Karcher is the perfect cleaner to get your floors ready. We were kindly sent the Karcher FC5 Hard Floor Cleaner, here’s our thoughts:

Karcher FC5 Floor

When the Karcher FC5 arrived in the office John from our team volunteered to try out. “At first I thought this looked brilliant, we have hard wood floors in the office and it isn’t easy keeping them clean with all of the photo shoots etc that we do here. We also have two cats in the office so needed something that would not only clean the floors but would also vacuum up pet hair.

Lifting out of the box and assembling was simple to do, I simply clicked the pieces into place and it was ready to go. I added in water to the detachable water tank and then some detergent (which I didn’t need much of) and the Karcher was ready to switch on, it was not too noisy, and sounded no louder than a vacuum cleaner – if anything the Karcher was quieter. The floor cleaner basically moved itself – I was really just there to steer but be warned when you turn this on the FC5 will instantly start moving so be ready!

I instantly saw the dirt and the dust coming off the floor and as this is a two in one the Karcher sucked up the excess water and the floors were dry in a few minutes, which I thought was ideal as I didn’t want slippery, wet floors in the office. I then took the tank which was sucking up the dirty water and emptied it out and clicked back into place.

The results were great, leaving any dirt behind and no strong soapy smell left, which other cleaners have done previously. When I was finished with the Karcher, I unplugged and emptied the water filter of all of the dirty water, washed the rollers, placed into the included holder and this bad boy was ready for using again.
