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 a few mintues. Our innovative SmartRoller technology vacuums up dust, small debris and pet hair, whilst controlling the flow of water to clean your hard floors gently yet effectively. You can also add detergent to lift deep down dirt, to leave your floors with a fresh lemon or bee’s wax smell. The Hard Floor cleaner is light and manoeuvrable, so it is easy to push, carry and store. You can also remove the rollers for machine washing. The hard floor cleaner comes with a two year guarantee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use Today was the first time I used my floor washer. I should have gotten one earlier in life! I am 80 and never had such an easy "Floor Day". I cleaned a kitchen (vinyl), front hall (slate), downstairs hall, bathroom and laundry room (ceramic tile) and still had enough pep left to make a double batch of zucchini bread. Every home should have one of these FC5 machines. Karen B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hard Floor Cleaner Bought this item 2 weeks ago and used it thru-out our home. We have ~ 1500 sq ft tile downstairs and this machine cleaned the tile in about 2.5 hours. Only got the yellow rollers with the machine - could not find the grey rollers in the US. Had to order them direct fro Europe. Too bad that USA customer service cannot help much in this regard. This is the best hard floor cleaner I’ve ever owned, but I’m worried about ongoing support (parts, repairs and detergent). It is way too expensive to get the parts from Europe. Maybe Karcher will increase USA support as the machine gains popularity. PS - it also cleans flush to a wall to less than the width of the grout line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great time saving device! I cannot say enough about the Karcher - FC5 Hard Floor Cleaner. It is such a great product that works very well and is a great time saver. I had never seen or heard of a floor cleaner that picks up dirt and cleans at the same time. I often have little pebbles or small stones just inside my front door from foot traffic. The Karcher Hard Floor Cleaner easily picked up the pebbles/stones in just one swipe. In the past, I would always have to vacuum the floors first before I could wet mop. No more of doing that!! It also left my laminate flooring clean and put back a shine to the floors. It cleaned very well and did not leave a sticky residue. Best of all, there were no streaks, and it dried the floors in about 2 minutes. The cleaner has a swivel steering that easily maneuvers around furniture or other obstacles. The mop head is 12 inches wide, so there is less swiping on the floor, and it is wide enough to clean any big mess. The Karcher Floor Cleaner is safe to use on hard wood, laminate, tile and stone floors. This is a must for every household!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for cleaning floors in a hurry This product is amazing. I love how it mops the floors while picking up anything a normal broom or mop might just push around. It was very easy to use, and it was nice to have different cleaning solutins for each type of floor along with the multi-purpose one. It was even great for reaching those hard to reach places. It dries very fast as well which is a great feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for tile floors I love this product for washing the floor. I do suggest you wet the pads first because it takes awhile to get them wet if you are just spraying. I also would suggest you vacuum first because it didn't pick up the dirt very well. It is great for washing!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I received the Kärcher - FC 5 to home test and review. I have a constant busy house with kids and pets. Mud happens a lot around here and the FC 5 works great to keep our busy hard surface floors clean. I really like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use! Super effective. This floor cleaner is super lightweight, which is nice because we have a multi level house with hardwood and tile throughout. When the rollers spin, it's basically self propelled and does the work for you. It's so easy to use that my 6 year old loves to use it. My floors looked clean, but the water that came out of "dirty" tank was disgusting! It gets dirt out that we didn't know we had! Perfect for a dog and kid friendly home!
