DENVER, May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's leading provider of innovative cleaning technology, Kärcher, is pleased to announce two product launches in the American market. Striving for excellence in consumer and commercial solutions, Kärcher has been a global authority on cleaning for 85 years, making their mark on the U.S. in part by helping to restore Mount Rushmore and cleaning the Seattle Space Needle. This season, the new FC 3 Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner and FC 5 Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner are the latest models to join the brand family.
Both designs were driven by Kärcher's simple innovation philosophy: do what benefits the customer. Powered by a lithium-ion battery, each product will run at full capacity for 20 minutes before needing a charge. Edge-to-edge cleaning paths provide a complete clean, right up to baseboards, while swivel steering gives the body superior flexibility for hard-to-reach places. Each device leaves floors up to 20% cleaner* than conventional mops, and uses about 80% less water than a mop and bucket.
The new FC 3 Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner is the lightest-weight option on the market, and cleans floors with a constant supply of fresh water, so dirty water never touches the floor. Rotating microfiber rollers are constantly wet with fresh water to clean floors, while the collected dirty water is automatically funneled into a separate tray never mixing the two. Drying time takes only two minutes, and the device is suitable for nearly any type of hard floor, from wood to stone to laminate. Additional product details can be found on the digital product page within Kärcher's website here.
The new FC 5 Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner also cleans hard floors with the streamlined functionality of the FC 3 with increased suction capabilities. Microfiber rollers make direct contact with floors, pushing out fresh water to clean while the back of the machine automatically vacuums up both wet and dry dirt, hair and dust while sucking up the dirty water into a large tank, all in one clean stroke. Unlike competing models, the FC 5 Cordless automatically dispenses solution, and with rollers having an automatic forward movement for easy navigation, cleaning becomes effortless.
