Protection Plan for Home & Garden Products
Extend the protection on your Kärcher Home & Garden product through our partnership with Clyde.
Kärcher North America offers additional product protection through Clyde.
The protection plan covers your product for additional years. Clyde continues the same coverage you have with your Kärcher warranty, when the original warranty expires.
