The fixed tank is powered with the standard 2200 watt heater unit, creating an extremely quick 3 minute heating time 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 EasyFix floor tool features a hook & loop cloth connection system for high convenience & fast cloth attachment. The attachable microfibre cloth provides at least 20% better cleaning performance in comparison to standard terry cloths for excellent, effortless cleaning. The microfibre cloth is also easily removable by stepping on the foot label meaning you do not come into direct contact with the collected dirt when removing it. The floor tool also features lamella technology, providing consistent moistening of the microfibre cloth for long lasting steam contact with the floor. The EasyFix floor tool also features a flexible joint for ergonomic cleaning. The joint allows a high level of manueverability & easy cleaning around obstacles as well as underneath furniture. The integrated return spring offers superb nozzle stabilisation & always returns the floor tool to its optimal horizontal working position for maximum floor contact.
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 EasyFix will work on most surfaces including, floors, walls, chrome work including taps and showers, granite tops, upvc and plastic, windows, oven doors & 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 SC5 EasyFix is ideal for ceramics, sealed laminates, sealed wood, quarry tiles & freshening carpets.
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.
Oven Doors & Hobs – If you use the SC5 EasyFix on a regular basis it will keep the dirt build up on oven doors under control. Grease & fat from foods builds up in layers & as such 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. The optional carpet glider makes refreshing carpets & rugs easier than ever when used with the SC5 EasyFix.
