German cleaning expert Kärcher has announced that its new FC 5 Cordless 2-in-1 floor cleaner is coming to Singapore.

Featuring a cordless handstick design, the FC 5 isn’t your typical vacuum cleaner. With two rotating microfibre rollers that are continuously moistened, it’s able to wet and dry dirt in a single step.

Additionally, through the use of suction, the water-dirt mixture is continuously carried away to keep the rollers clean. According to Kärcher, the FC 5 works on all hard floors, and they will all dry in under two minutes because of the low residual moisture.

The FC 5 features two separate tanks for the clean and dirty water. Changing and cleaning the rollers is easy and you won’t have to come into contact with the dirt on them: simply place the FC 5 in the docking station and start the self-rinsing function.

At 4.4kg, the FC 5 isn’t light. That said, it’s easy to move the floor cleaner across the floor thanks to its forward rotating rollers, and its cleaning head has a flexible hinge that helps you get to tight spaces (e.g. under the furniture). Finally, the internal Li-ion battery takes about four hours to charge and runs down in roughly 20 minutes. To give you an idea, this is about enough time to wipe and vacuum a 60m² area.

The Kärcher FC 5 Cordless will go on sale from Aug 8 for S$798. You can find it at all major retailers such as Harvey Norman, Courts, Best Denki, and Gain City.
