I have always found that all the floor cleaning methods have drawbacks.
The best results are when you get down on your hands and knees and use a bucket and a good microfibre cloth. The floor is cleaned beautifully but the drawbacks are obvious: knees, ouch and a fair bit of sweat and elbow grease is required.
A mop and bucket is less arduous, and I have a great spinning one that leaves the floor fairly dry, but as the job goes on the water gets progressively dirty and you feel as though you’re just spreading the filth around. I have tried steam cleaners and I love the idea but I’m never sure that they’re actually cleaning the floor that well, even though they’re very easy to use. That’s why when I discovered the new Karcher cleaning system I got very excited.
The Karcher FC5 Hard Floor Cleaner is your vacuum and floor washer all in one, with innovative SmartRoller technology that vacuums up grit, dust, pet hair and small debris, while controlling the flow of water to clean your hard floors gently yet effectively. Light and manoeuvrable, and it leaves your hard floors clean and gleaming – and dry in just two minutes – it seems to constantly use clean water to clean the floor and the rollers, vacuuming off the dirty water the whole time.
Cleaning hard floors usually means cleaning them twice. First you have to vacuum away all the grit, pet hair and dust, and then wash with a mop and bucket. The new Kärcher Hard Floor Cleaner does both jobs at the same time, giving you gleaming hard floors without the need for mops, buckets and scrubbing.
Whether you are cleaning hardwood, laminate, tiles or stone floors, the hard floor cleaner works brilliantly, leaving them clean and dry in just two minutes. You can also add detergent to lift deep down dirt, to leave your floors with a fresh lemon or bee’s wax smell depending on which cleaner you use and you can even remove the rollers for the machine washing. The hard floor cleaner comes with a two year guarantee.
We have an offer on that contains:
FC5 Floor cleaner
1 x parking station
1 x measuring cup
2 x Microfibre rollers
2 x Universal detergent RM536 (1L)
It did take me a wee bit longer to Karcher my floor that it did to mop it but if you consider that I would save time not having to vacuum it then it is probably quicker in the long run. The finish on the floor was great and I found it got the grout lines much cleaner (as I think the mop leaves a trail of dirty water sitting in their concave profile). All in all I am very impressed and will definitely be Karchering instead of mopping in the future.
And by the way Karcher have given us the most amazing prices lately as if you bought the same package directly from them it would cost £247.97 so you’re saving over £39.00 by ordering from QVC.
Cleaning my floors will be a joy… well as much as cleaning floors ever can be!
