The Karcher SC5.800C Steam Cleaner is for those who will use a steam cleaner on a more frequent basis. The main step in functionality is the ability to clean non-stop with the twin tank system. This eradicates the down time when you run out of water with a normal steam cleaner. This can waste 20 minutes or more as you wait for the steam cleaner to cool allowing for the safety valve to open. Combine this with the fill time and re-heat and you have quite a delay!

The Karcher SC5.800 Steam Cleaner has two tanks, the first a removable easy fill (1.5L) tank, and second, the fixed (0.5L) tank. This is filled on a continuous basis by the removable tank.

The fixed tank is powered with the standard 1800 watt heater unit, creating an almost instant use feature and when cleaning will provide non-stop steam cleaning until you have completed all of your cleaning tasks. This brilliant feature is ideal for users with larger areas, multiple tasks or larger homes. The SC5.800 also benefits from the new improved floor tool which improves cleaning efficiency by up-to 35% with more cloth contact with the steam during the cleaning process.

How does it work? Steam combined with the bar pressure (psi) gets under the dirt and emulsifies grease allowing you to wipe away any residue soilage. The steam action also kills bacteria and therefore sanitising the surface.

To get the most out of a steamer it is all about cleaning the surface quickly and often rather than restorative cleaning, Stick to this and all cleaning tasks around the home will be a breeze. The Karcher SC5.800 will work on most surfaces including, floors, walls, chrome work including taps and showers, granite tops, upvc and plastic, windows, oven and hobs, as well as mattresses carpets and upholstery.

Allergy- A steam cleaner is a one stop solution for removing germs, virus, bacteria and mould. It will also kill bed and dust mites and their eggs, therefore greatly helping people with allergies and asthma.

Floors- The steamer is good on ceramics, laminates, sealed wood, carpets and quarry tiles. If you intend to use on unsealed wood you may need to double the cloth on the floor tool.

Walls- Great for both glazed and unglazed tiles, porcelain and most hard wall surfaces. With the small round brush you can also restore grout work with ease.

Granite- A steam cleaner combines all the action you require for the kitchen work tops, cleaning, degreasing and sanitising in one fast action. Use a microfibre cloth as you go for a final wipe down and your surfaces will sparkle.

Chrome-(taps and showers) Cleans and shines and with regular use keeps the scale under control. Also great for removing the residue soap and shampoo's that build up.

Windows- Add the optional window tool accessory to steam and squeegee in one fast action. Just use a microfibre cloth to detail the window afterwards for a complete professional result.

Ovens and Hobs- If you use the steamer on a regular basis it will keep the oven under control. The grease and fat from foods goes on in layers and therefore will need to be removed in layers. If you leave the grease for a long period the heat will carbonise the residue, this is very difficult to remove. The steamer is great on cooker tops and hobs. The turbo brush and brass brush is also very useful. The steamer is also very good in the difficult to reach areas.

Carpets- One of the most asked question on Cleanstore 'can i steam clean my carpet?'. Steamers are good for a light surface clean, spot removal (including upholstery) and sanitising, as well as killing any bugs (this also includes mattresses). What they will not do is a deep restorative clean, however they keep a carpet in clean condition quite nicely, but as stated earlier it needs to be a quick clean on a regular basis.

Features and Benefits:

  • Powerful- 1800 Watt, 4 bar with 0.5Ltr tank for fast heat up
  • Safety- Child proof lock with heat safety valve
  • Twin Tank - 0.5L Heat Tank with 1.5L Removable Feeder Tank
  • Multi-tasking- Cleans & Sanitises most surfaces
  • VapoHydro Flow-Control- Steam/Water flow control on handle which is also lockable
  • Green- Chemical free cleaning
  • Cost Effective- Regular use stops the need for harsh expensive chemicals
  • Park -Handy lance park between cleaning
  • Accessories- Wide range to cover those difficult time consuming jobs.
  • Allergy - One stop solution for killing germ, virus bacteria, mould, dust mites and eggs

Hint & Tips:

Always have some microfibre cloths handy, they speed up the whole process, increase the cleaning result and deliver the streak free cleaning finish.

Have enough cloths (floor and hand) to change on a regular basis for optimum results (check out our accessories tab, for a selection of SC5.800 accessories)

If you use a Microfibre cloth you should not use detergent when machine washing them.

To keep the best results, descale your unit on a regular basis depending on the water hardness in your area.

The SC5.800 has the removable front socket to allow an iron to be attached. Ironing with a steamer can be up to 50% quicker.

In Summary- The major advantage for this unit is the twin tanks and non-stop operation if you have multiple tasks, a large area or home. It will save time over the smaller units in the range.

A Pleasant Surprise 12/11/2014
I had no idea but suspected a good quality Steam Cleaner could make a good clean of a Kitchen and all within including oven and floor SOOO much easier. OK I spent 2 days on it but I really enjoyed the job as it was not too onerous beacuse the steam made work "easy". I definately did more than I would have done otherwise and noe feel that I could eat off ANY surface. I did buy a shed load of accessories including the window cleaning tool and I did the windows also - brilliant. Note - it can't do everything "on it's own" as you do need to give a helping hand to some deep seated grime BUT the early grunt of such jobs is more than handeled by the steam. Good old wire wool and muscle does the rest as I would have had to do to mostly all I tackled. The cost seems a lot but you have to balance that against results and your willingness to tackle what overwise would be awful cleaning tasks. So, on a HUGE balance in favour I fully recommend this steam cleaner. No major headaches putting it together or in use - dead easy and storage seems good too - made a space specifically for it and I see it now as an essential household tool. The wife loves it beacuse I'm so keen and thus I sort of have shot myself in the foot as now ALL such tasks fall soley on me from now on. No problem, she makes great grub and leaves me to my man cave when I want to play with my mates. Enjoy folks.
