Karcher Steam Mop Uses Zero Chemical and 80% Less Water

If you are sensitive to chemicals, here is a reason to take a look at Karcher SC3 Upright EasyFix Steam Mop which uses hot steam to deep clean the floor without chemicals.

I remembered years ago, there are vendors selling steam cleaners in very small sizes. Now, with Karcher and their expertise in cleaning technology, I am sure this steam mop is going to be as efficient.

I have not tried it before though (but would love too). If you are really interested, they are available from 21st October at S$398. If you can’t wait, you can go to their Karcher Centre showroom at 3 Depot Close to take a closer look.

Karcher’s new steam mop deep cleans without chemicals in quick time

  • New upright design puts the power of hot steam deep cleaning into one easy-to-use package
  • Hot steam cuts through dirt, grease and grime without the usage of any chemicals
  • Only 30 seconds needed to heat up the steam mop for quick usage

SINGAPORE (15 October 2019) – Karcher today launched its new SC 3 Upright EasyFix steam mop as it expands its range of steam-powered deep cleaning technology in Singapore.

The SC 3 Upright EasyFix uses the power of hot steam heated to nearly 100-degrees celsius to penetrate and deep clean virtually all surfaces, including tiles, wood and carpet without the need for any chemicals or cleaning agents. Steam-cleaning the floor is significantly better in removing dirt, grease and grime at home as compared to conventional mopping.  Not only is fresh water used throughout the cleaning process, it can eliminate 99.99 per cent of all common household bacteria at the same time

When switched on, the SC 3 Upright EasyFix is ready for use after just 30 seconds. In addition, the removable fresh water tank can be topped up at any time, this allows for uninterrupted cleaning.

“Steam cleaner is an essential for home cleaning. It is able to eliminate 99.99 per cent of all common household bacteria without the need to use any chemicals or cleaning agents, thus cutting down on plastics bottles disposal. As we witness numerous weather pattern changes – including drought, melting ice caps and even, a first land sprout in Singapore, action must be taken to address the climate change situation,” said Vincent Sim, General Manager of Karcher Singapore.

“The SC 3 Upright EasyFix reduces the need for detergents and cleaning agents, it also helps to save water. Instead of mopping using a pail of water, the SC 3 Upright EasyFix deep cleans effectively using about 80% less water,” he added.

Easy to use, cleans thoroughly

The new SC 3 Upright EasyFix is the perfect partner to help homemakers thoroughly cut through all the dirt and grime, whether their floors are surfaced with tile, wood and even carpet. The carpet glider supplied refreshes the fibers of rugs and carpets, and the hot steam penetrates deeply for a thorough clean.

  • A three-stage steam volume control operated by an easy to use selection button on the handle ensures that an appropriate amount of steam is dispensed for the right surface.
  • Like all Karcher steam cleaners, the SC 3 Upright EasyFix is equipped with the EasyFix floor nozzle. Plastic slats on the bottom ensure that the hot steam remains under the nozzle for a long time, so that the attached microfibre floor cloth can be wet intensively and evenly. The microfibre floor cloth is also securely attached to the nozzle via Velcro strips and does not slip.
  • In combination with the hot steam, the microfibre cloth promises clean results:  it reliably tackles exceptionally stubborn dirt on scratch-sensitive stone floors.
  • A flexible hinge maximizes the floor nozzle’s contact with the floor. Even narrow and flat areas underneath furniture can be reached.

Healthy and environmentally friendly

The SC 3 Upright EasyFix is ideal for families with children and allergy-sufferers, as it reduces the risk of getting symptoms of irritation such as sore eyes or itchy skin, which may be caused by prolonged exposure to strong chemicals found from cleaning products like bleach.

In fact, steam cleaning eliminates 99.99 per cent of all common household bacteria in a sustainable and environmentally way by using just water.  Steam cleaning helps to reduce plastic usage and wastage coming from the packaging and containers of cleaning agents by eliminating the need to use them for deep cleaning.

Pricing and availability

The Karcher SC 3 Upright EasyFix is available at all major electronics and electric appliance stores in Singapore from 21 October 2019 at a recommended retail price of SGD 398.
