Pressure + Speed + Temperature = Ultimate Clean The secret of steam cleaning lies in the powerful combination of pressure, speed and temperature. Microscopic steam particles force their way into even the tiniest areas to thoroughly loosen dirt particles. Our steam cleaners do not use any chemicals – they use only tap water. This provides a safe environment for small children in particular, who like to put things in their mouths. Allergy sufferers can also breathe a sigh of relief. If used properly, Kärcher steam cleaners like the SC 3 can remove up to 99.999% of enveloped viruses1, such as the coronavirus or influenza, and up to 99.9% of common household bacteria2 from hard surfaces.
Germs don't stand a chance
Germs don't stand a chance Sometimes the best way of getting rid of germs is also the simplest: hot steam. The forceful ejection of steam, combined with nozzles and cleaning cloths, ensures that Kärcher steam cleaners remove up to 99.999% of enveloped viruses*, such as the coronavirus or influenza, and up to 99.9% of common household bacteria** on hard surfaces, fittings, tiles, mirrors and more. This has been confirmed by scientific studies – with Kärcher steam cleaners, germs don't stand a chance. Chemical-free cleaning made easy!

Kärcher steam cleaners are not just for kitchen and bathroom surfaces – they also ensure maximum cleanliness and hygiene on hard surfaces like stone, tiles, vinyl, laminate and varnished wood flooring. The Kärcher floor nozzle is fitted with slats so that the steam remains concentrated on the floor and is used to maximum effect. Thanks to their unsurpassed cleaning performance, Kärcher steam cleaners are considerably more hygienic than a regular mop or spray mop.
The need for speed
Other popular steam cleaners can take up to eight minutes or more to fully heat up and produce steam. If you've just finished cooking and want to do a quick kitchen cleanup, who wants to wait eight minutes? And if you've finally committed to cleaning the bathroom, waiting that long might just make you put it off for another day. Kärcher steam cleaners heat up and produce steam in as few as 40 seconds! In fact, you might even be done steam cleaning before a competing machine fully heats up. Truly timesaving.
A competitive edge
Cheap steamers cut a lot of corners, especially with nozzles. When you attempt to clean the floor, you can see the nozzles making lines of steam instead of covering the entire area.
Kärcher steam cleaners use Lamella Technology to ensure the steam is equally distributed throughout the cleaning cloth.
In addition to getting to an even clean, you also get effective edge cleaning. So go ahead and clean those baseboard edges while you're cleaning the floor. No extra tools required!
