What can I clean with a Kärcher cordless vacuum cleaner?

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes

The HEPA filter can be cleaned by holding it under running water. The dirt cup can be cleaned in the same way. 

The filter should be air dried only – do NOT put the filter in a clothes dryer or attempt to dry with a hair dryer, as this could permanently damage the HEPA filter.

For VCN 3, VCN 4 and VCN 5 vacuums, please see the comparison chart above.

The VC 4s includes the following attachments:

  • Floor nozzle with brush roll
  • Upholstery tool / nozzle
  • Crevice tool / nozzle

The VC 3 includes the following attachments:

  • Floor nozzle
  • Furniture brush
  • Crevice nozzle

 

Our cordless vacs excel at picking up pet hair! For floor cleaning, pet owners often clean with the brush roll powered on to assist in actively picking up the hair.

If you find the brush roll accumulating hair while you vacuum, it's easy to detach so that you can quickly clean it without the floor nozzle getting in the way. 

The upholstery nozzle is also great for removing dog and cat hair from sofas, chairs and more. 

Yes

The brush roll can be easily removed for cleaning or to replace with a new brush roll. Please see the owner's manual for specific instructions on how remove, clean and/or replace it. 

Kärcher cordless vacuums typically require three to five hours to fully charge from empty. Less time is required if the battery is already partially charged.

Up to 71 minutes, depending on the model, power mode and attachment configuration. Please see the operating time chart above for detailed information.

VCN Line of Vacuums:

The lithium-ion battery in the VCN 3, VCN 4 and VCN 5 is rated 25v.

The batteries in the VCN line are removeable and can be easily replaced or switched out.

––––––--–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––-

VC 4s and VC 4i (discontinued):

The lithium-ion battery in the VC 4s and VC 4i is rated 18v. 

The batteries in the VC 4s and VC 4i vacuums are integrated and can not be replaced or switched out.

The regular brush roller included with all our cordless models cleans carpets and hard floors throughout the home. 

The soft roller brush (included with the VCN 4 and VCN 5) is great for cleaning hard floors, delicate floors and picking up larger debris. It is not intended for vacuuming carpets.
