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.

FC 5 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 174.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleans floors well Good machine, but would advise buying at least 3 more sets of rollers. The rollers can be cleaned in a washing machine, dried so as not to be left damp and smelly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective and easy to use I have had my FC5 for a month now and am delighted with it. I keep it always ready to use and, because the floors dry so quickly, I can quickly run it over the floor to remove those muddy paw prints as soon as they occur. My tiled floors now look lovely all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine - The only way Bought after 'road testing 'my daughters FC5. Works across all our ground floor rooms on laminate, vinyl, tiles and karndean. Suggest removing very sticky stains with a wet-wipe prior to using. Do adhere to priming and cleaning instructions to ensure max effectiveness. Leaves a great finish and dries quickly. So superior to mop and bucket avoiding excess water ingress to flooring. Add a touch of Zoflora and non foaming cleaner to dispenser. Finally do empty after each session as the waste water tank is not meant to exceed the line despite its size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Features Although the machine works fairly well I find the switch difficult to use and think tthis should be a rocker switch. Also the suction is not sufficient to pick up the water. The rofllers also tend to work off .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product Karcher has made it again. I have hard flooring all over the house and I have used the product every weekend since I received the item. The floor cleaner is easy to use as it glides on the floor. The power of the machine is excellent and it wipes clean any dirty areas. I used to use a steam cleaner on my kitchen floor and it was good, but a lot of targeted cleaning. With FC5, I found that the roller movers smoothly and any stubborn dirts get cleaned without any force. One of the key features is how the roller cleans the corners. FC5 Hard Floor Cleaner is a cross between a vacuum cleaner and a mop. It vacuums up dirts while washing the floor at the same time and the floors dry a lot faster. It saves time, does two cleans at once, and does it much better! Once the product arrived, I had to do some very simple assembly; I had to insert the handle in the unit and attach the rollers. It features a 2-tank system, one for clean water and one for the dirty water and dirt collection), the clean water tank slots into the front and the dirty water tank into the back. It also comes with a storage base so that the cleaner can stand upright when not in use. The Kärcher FC 5's weight of only 4.6kg is lighter than 80% of all vacuum cleaners. Using the cleaner is very simple, I found some videos and watch “how to use” on YouTube. The cleaner is light with a rotating body. It’s specifically designed for hardwood floors. It uses vacuum technology to spray and suck the water through the front rotating pads, making sure the floor stays as dry as possible during a wash. The front tank holds clean water, and when mixed with their detergents, gives off a pleasant smell, keeping the home smell fresh. Once the product is assembled, I added detergent (small bottle is supplied) to the fresh water tank and filled with water to the maximum line. I Switched on the cleaner for a few seconds, while still in the stand, to moisten the rollers and then it was ready to go. I found that the cleaner body swivels so it is extremely easy to maneuver and get under furniture and used the cleaner edge to edge rollers and cleaned the skirting boards. The rollers can be removed after use and cleaned in the washing machine and the dirty water tank is easily removed for emptying, without having to touch the water. Removing both water containers is an easy task, push down on the top. Filling the clean water container is easy. The dirty water container comes in two pieces – there’s an inner structure which is designed to catch solid material like hair , and this comes out so that this stuff can be put in the bin. The dirty water can then be poured down the sink, you can see all the dirt that the FC5 has picked up. The FC5 comes with a black plastic stand “cleaning station” which can be used both when the cleaner is stand up right and when cleaning is underway. The benefit of the FC5 is the overall time saving of not having to vacuum before cleaning, only need to go over the surface once with the FC5 and its job done. The Karcher FC Hard Floor Cleaner is a powerful floor cleaner and the results are excellent. I initially thought the price tag of £229.99 was expensive, but after using it I can definitely say it is worth the money.
