Always clean with clean water
Unlike traditional floor cleaning methods such as mopping, the Kärcher Hard Floor Cleaner range cleans with continuous fresh water - so you no longer need to push dirty water around your floors whilst cleaning.
The dirty water is collected into the dirty water tanks as you clean, whilst the rollers stay moist with water and detergent from a separate clean water tank, ensuring your floors are always being cleaned properly.
Suitable for all hard floor types
Whether wood, stone or synthetic: combined with Kärcher cleaning and care products, the FC 5 cleans well on all hard floors – thanks to high-quality microfibre rollers and low residual moisture, even on sensitive parquet.
You can find a large selection of special detergents for optimal protection here.
Right to the edge cleaning
The entire Kärcher Hard Floor Cleaner range are designed so that the rollers go right to the edge of the machine.
This ensures cleaning of your entire floor, so none of your hard floors are missed!
Clean those hard to reach areas
With the super light frame and maneuverability of the head, you can clean all those areas that often get missed!
The innovation doesn't stop there!
Dry in under 2 minutes
Thanks to the suctioning away dirty water, the hard floor cleaner leaves behind very little residual moisture, meaning that the wiped floor can be used again after less than 2 minutes.
Effortless floor cleaning
With this new revolutionary hard floor cleaning concept, wiping has never been so easy and effortless – with no scrubbing!
85% water saving in comparison to conventional methods
The FC 5 saves valuable water. For an apartment with an area of around 60 m², the floor cleaner needs just 600 ml of water, compared to conventional cleaning which requires at least 5 to 10 litres.
20% better cleaning performance**
Thanks to the automatically driven rollers, the hard floor cleaner moves over the floor almost by itself and, with 500 revolutions per minute, completes many wiping movements in just one pass. This allows you to achieve a more hygienic and more effective result in comparison to a conventional wiping mop.

Frequently Asked Questions
What types of floors can they be used on?
The beauty of Kärcher Hard Floor Cleaners is that they are suitable for all hard floor types. Vinyl, tiles, stone, timber, bamboo, lino, porcelain & even hybrid floors just to name a few.
How do they continuously use fresh water while cleaning?
This is due to both the self-cleaning and twin tank technology. The fresh water and detergent that is used to clean the floors is in one tank, whilst the dirty water is kept in a separate tank. This ensures the rollers are always kept moist by fresh water and not the dirty water that you are collecting while cleaning.
Will they damage or scratch my floors?
No. Our Hard Floor Cleaners come with super-soft microfibre rollers that ensure no scratching of floors at all. If a tougher roller set is needed for floors such as stone, we have a stone roller set than can be purchased separately that are compatible with all of our Hard Floor Cleaners. However, we recommend not using the stone rollers on other floor types.
What is the battery runtime & how long does the fresh water last before it needs refilling?
For our cordless models, the battery runtime is between 20-30 minutes. The fresh water tank capacity for our FC 3 Cordless is 360ml and 400ml for our FC 5 Cordless. Generally speaking this fresh water will last for the machines entire charge time. This allows for a huge water saving compared to a mop and bucket which usually needs over 5L.
Is the water heated?
Whilst our Hard Floor Cleaner can take water up to 40°C, we recommend only using cold water. The machine does not heat the water. The cold water, combined with the Kärcher Universal Floor Cleaning Detergent and the microfibre rollers give the floor an effective deep clean. Using the Kärcher detergent also enables the 2 minute drying time as it contains drying agents in the chemical.
Can I use any detergent with a Kärcher Hard Floor Cleaner?
We strongly suggest only using the Kärcher floor cleaning detergents with our Hard Floor Cleaners. These have drying agents in them to enable the super-fast 2 minute drying time. They also have foam stop chemical to limit foam and streaks being left on the floor.
To add to this, we have not tested the use of external detergents being used with our Hard Floor Cleaners so we can not guarantee that there won't be complications with the machine if other detergents are used.
Why is my floor foaming when using my Kärcher Hard Floor Cleaner & Kärcher Detergent?
As mentioned above, Kärcher's Floor Cleaner Detergents have foam stop agents. However, the first few times a floor is cleaned there can still be foaming. Previous detergents you have used can leave a film on your floors that is collected by your Kärcher Hard Floor Cleaner the first few times you use it. This initial foaming is usually occurring as a result of the old detergent. Once you have used your Kärcher Hard Floor Cleaner along with the Kärcher Detergent on your floors, this film will be removed and the foaming should stop.
Accessories and Detergents
With the range of accessories for Kärcher hard floor cleaner, you can tailor cleaning and care perfectly to the requirements of your floors. The standard detergent, for example, is suitable for any hard floor, while special detergents for wood and stone provide these floors with additional care and protection.
