Faster Floor Cleaning

South Africa, April 2019 – In many households, weekend plans often include cleaning. Floor cleaning is one of the most time-consuming household tasks of all: first of all, it requires vacuuming, then mopping, waiting for the floor to dry, and finally cleaning the mop. With the new Hard Floor Cleaner FC 5, floor cleaning is now much faster as it combines vacuuming and mopping in a single step. From spilt coffee to muddy footprints and hairs – everything is cleared up with a single wipe.

Unique technology
The characteristic feature of this hard floor cleaner is the two quickly rotating microfibre rollers, which are moistened continuously with a detergent solution. They loosen the dirt and wipe it up off the floor. Say goodbye to laborious scrubbing. Dirt and moisture are continuously vacuumed by the rollers. Compared to the classic mop, FC 5 always cleans the floor with clean rollers and fresh water. A further advantage is that the dirty vacuumed liquid is drawn into a separate tank, which can simply be emptied after cleaning.

Economical and eco-friendly all in one
With its unique system operation, the FC 5 not only saves time but water too, compared to a conventional wiping mop. With just one tank filling of 400 ml, all hard floors, from stone to wooden floors, with a surface area of up to 60 m² can be cleaned quickly and easily. This reduces the environmental impact – and patience required – as the device’s resource-saving operation means that the floor is dry in under two minutes. And with the FC 5 there is no unpleasant rinsing and wringing out of the wiping mop by hand. The tank is very easy to empty without coming into direct contact with the dirty water. The hard floor cleaner is then placed back in the parking and cleaning station provided, filled with fresh water and the self-rinsing function is started.

Kärcher offers detergents for stone floors, varnished and waxed wooden floors or a Universal Cleaner for the FC 5.

The devices which come in a yellow (with one set of rollers) and white (premium, with an extra pair of rollers) design will be available at retail stores countrywide.
