Karcher SC3


The Karcher SC3 is a compact, lightweight, cylinder-style steam cleaner with a floor-head for mopping. The accompanying tools for detailed cleaning can be used at the end of the lance to achieve a long reach.

Karcher does it again with this mid-priced cylinder that makes light work of steam cleaning.

Great steam cleaner


I had a old fashion steam cleaner for years but decided to swap because I had to wait for it to cool down completely before refilling the tank. This Karcher can be filled "on the go", heats up quickly and does the job. Delighted!

Kärcher SC3 Continuous Steam Cleaner With Built In Descaling Filter


Bought this in Sept '16 as it was my first time purchasing a steam cleaner and thought best go for one of the more expensive products. Unfortunately I did find it very hard to use as you need to hold the steam button continuously. So instead of using...
