Benefits of steam cleaning

Deep cleaning without chemicals

The secret of steam cleaning is based on the powerful combination of pressure, speed and temperature. Microscopically small steam particles force their way into even the hardest to reach crevices and tiniest recesses to thoroughly loosen dirt particles. As steam cleaning does not use any chemical cleaning agents, it prevents allergen residues from forming on the cleaned surfaces. This provides a safe environment for small children in particular, who like to put things in their mouths, and allergy sufferers can also breathe a sigh of relief.
 

Steam kills 99,99 % of bacteria*

Sometimes the best way of getting rid of bacteria is also the simplest: hot steam. The powerful ejection of steam, the high temperature of the steam, powerful nozzles and heated cleaning cloths ensure that Kärcher steam cleaners kill 99.99 %* of all common household bacteria on hard surfaces, fittings, tiles, mirrors and more. This was confirmed as part of a study by the renowned Enders Laboratory in Stuttgart, and with results like these, common household bacteria do not stand a chance.

Better than a mop**

Sustainability

The most environmentally friendly way to clean

Steam cleaning saves up to 80% water compared to conventional cleaning and doesn't pollute the waste water with chemical substances. Cleaning with a steam cleaner requires only 1 litre of water to generate 1,700 litres of steam. This is enough to clean an apartment of approx. 60m².
Thanks to Kärcher's innovative floor nozzle featuring lamella technology, our steam cleaners achieve significantly better results than steam cleaners that use bristles. A 25% better result can be achieved in the same amount of time. In this way you save pure energy when cleaning. Like all other units from Kärcher also the entire steam cleaner range are over 90 % recyclable.
