But its worked out that i can use it for everything! cleaning turned into fun process and even mu husband who is not big fan of cleaning enjoying it now.
There are some tips i can give after I read some previous reviews:
@Floor becoming too wet. Not if you keep steam output on lower setting
@After first meter you spreading dirt around. Not if you overturn cloth. You can do it up to 4 times on one cloth.
@cloths are too expensive for what they are. You can create your own out of old towel. Just cut it to same size and off you go. For me i use 3 cloths for each room separately.
@little brush collects grease and after that it become ineffective. You dont have to buy another one. Just apply a bit of washing up liquid, press against kitchen sponge and release steam. steam will clear all grease out of brush and sponge will collect it.
The unit fits together easily and intuitively. The handbook is good and if you're a linguist in 28 languages! All very straight-forward.
Previously I used a mop-n'-bucket to clean the kitchen which has a ceramic tiled floor.
I first thoroughly swept the kitchen to remove all the loose stuff.
The unit came up to steam within the stated 8 minutes and kept up the steam pressure for the duration of the clean about 15 minutes.
The cloth pads get a bit grubby after around 2-4 square metres (proves their working) but this might be as previously I used a mop and was not happy with the cleanliness achieved.
The Kärcher towelling cloth pads are circa 15" by 8" so by turning and refolding you have 4 sides to use. I rinsed out the cloth each time I turned it to remove the worst grime. This is the same as rinsing a mop and not too much more effort.
I also used microfibre cloths which being 16" x 16" give 8 sides available by refolding as above and are easy to attach and use.
Both can be rinsed out and then washed in the washing machine & tumbled then ready for reuse.
The Microfibre cloth was most probably marginally better as it seemed to leave less water residue on the floor although cleaning wise no discernible difference.Read more ›
We received promptly and got it about £30 less on Amazon compared to some of the major outlets - the water reservoir holds less than 1litre but is more than sufficient and we've used twice now and always have had to empty the unit before packing away. - so plenty for most jobs we would think.
Agree that the parts and the cable can be a bit untidy but we've got storage so not an issue. Works a treat and we've cleaned tiled and wooden floors really effectively - just make sure you let the unit reheat to maximise the steam during use. Very stubborn stains will need a bit of an extra scrub by hand but it's really effective and quick and we were cleaning up after some DIY work so expect now that we've given everything a good clean it'll be a breeze to whizz around and keep on top of it.
The small hand fitting was used in the bathrooms and it's amazing what you find coming out of the nooks and crannies that you think are clean!
The hand tool with the small towel elasticated around does seem to get very wet during use and needs some extra wiping (cooker hood,glazing, mirrors) but we'll experiment to get this and it could be that we didn't let the unit heat fully before starting?
We would very much recommend, we've been very impressed and it works a treat for us.

Fantastic. The carpet upholstery attachment is very useful. It does take a while to cool down and then refil but it's got a decent amount of steam time!Published 2 months ago by J. Ferreira
