Kärcher Introduces the FC5 Hard Floor Cleaner to North America

Exclusive two-in-one functionality provides ability to mop and vacuum light debris in one step

DENVER, Sept. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kärcher Group, a leading global provider of cleaning technology, today announced the introduction of the Kärcher FC5 Hard Floor Cleaner to the North American market.

Designed to help customers reduce cleaning time, the Kärcher FC5 Hard Floor Cleaner leverages an innovative two-in-one functionality that allows customers to both mop and remove wet and dry dirt in just one step. The FC5's microfiber rollers scrub away dirt with a minimum amount of water, and the dirt is then moved to a separate container, keeping the rollers clean as you work. The FC5 can be used on most standard hard floor surfaces, including wood, stone, laminate, concrete or plastic. The machine is prepackaged with four sample cleaning detergents that are engineered to address these surfaces. The detergents include universal, oil and wax, wood and stone offerings.

In comparison with conventional cleaning methods like mopping, the Kärcher FC5 Hard Floor Cleaner uses up to 85% less water while providing significantly better cleaning performance in the process. The minimal amount of used water and cleaning solution allows floors to dry in two minutes or less.

The Kärcher FC5 Hard Floor Cleaner includes a flexible hinge within its cleaning head, which permits customers to freely navigate around objects. In addition, the Kärcher FC5 Hard Floor Cleaner has an easy-to-remove two tank system, allowing customers to fill the clean water tank from a faucet and empty the dirty water tank separately. Customers are also provided with a cleaning and storage station for their unit and the rollers are machine washable for multiple uses.
