    I had a shark mop for years which I loved but it finally gave up the ghost and I needed a replacement. Unfortunately the shark one was no longer sold so I had to search elsewhere and I completely love this! It shifts more dirt, easy to use and I wish I had got it soone

    We’ve just refurbished our kitchen and had Amtico fitted. Too much adhesive was used – turning it into a bit of a nightmare. Solvents (as instructed by Amtico) helped lift the adhesive – but it was still not looking great. I know you shouldn’t steam clean Amtico – but I pretty much had nothing to loose as we were on the verge of replacing the floor. Well, the SC2 is amazing. Floor looks so much better and I’m sure it will continue to improve with (sparing!) use.

    Fab product, I have various Kercher products and never disappointed. Easy to use, cleans floor well. Only drawback is the cable is too short so I have to use an extension lead which is why I’ve scored 4 star.

    Golden Review Award: 5 From Our UsersThis is a great steam cleaner. Good power, very fast to heat up and seems very durable. Leaves floors looking clean and looking at the pad free cleaning certainly picks up a lot of dirt. My only major issue is that the cable is unnecessarily short. It seems like you are always having to unplug and plug it in again. As one of the main areas you want to use this cleaner is in the bathroom a short cable is very annoying.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersThis is the third steamer I have purchased, the other two were cheaper and overall a waste of money. This Karcher steam mop is excellent. Best thing is that the floors are dry within 10 minutes. 5*

    The biggest problem with this steam cleaner is it does not stand up by itself. For the money, I expect that basic function (a cheaper Vax I have, stands up fine)!

    But this steam cleaner does clean the floor well. It is heavy though. I am disabled and the few negative points I posted do impact how often I use it. Wish I could use it more.

    You only get ONE CLOTH. Which is crazy, as one does not do all the floors. So buy more cloths (which are x 2 for 20).

    Golden Review Award: 16 From Our UsersThis is a Superb steam mop! The Karcher SC 2 Upright EasyFix Steam Mop! I cannot praise it enough! It cleanse the floor (stone or laminate) exceptionally well!. Note: you do have to frequently change the mop head when cleaning the floor otherwise you will end up pushing dirty water around the floor. The mop is the perfect weight, not too heavy and not too light, which makes it more effective at cleaning. It is easy to push across the floor. It kills the bacteria and cleans far more effectively than any other hand powered mop. I have used it nearly every day since purchasing it and it performs 100% every time. I do not use the cartridge, I use distilled water as it lasts longer and can mop a floor 20 x 15 foot without needing to be refilled. I use an extension cord with it as the power cord is not long enough. I use the KEEPOW microfibre cloth pads which are much better than the Karcher ones. I have used this steam mop on stone and one-piece laminate floors only. I would not use it on wooden floors or laminate coated floor boards / tiles. If used on a wooden floor, it makes scratched and pits in the wood darker in colour. On laminate floor tiles it would eventually lift the flooring. I believe this mop is superior to there newer model based on the reviews I have read. The new model (SC3 EasyFix Steam Mop) is heaver and this would make it harder to push around. This mop is effective at cleaning a floor, has the perfect weight, is moveable, easy to fill with distilled watch, quick to heat up, easy to use and better at floor cleaning than any other karcher model (karcher SC4 steam cleaner) in which I have used many in my job.

    Love it for its sturdiness. Has a filter cartridge inside so should last longer than the others. They all seem to scale up or start leaking after a while. It seems to steam through the entire base thing and not just bits of it. Very nice to handle and as I said sturdy. It doesn’t feel like it is going to break. Some people complained about the length of the cable and I was worried but it is exactly the same length as all the other steamer’s cable. It feels more expensive than the previous ones I had. Am happy with it. Would recommend.

    This keeps our wood floors pristine without using chemicals. It’s easy to use and the floor is dry in minutes. The cleaning cloths are easily machine washed after soaking in hot water for a while. It’s a pity the cable is not longer but I just use and extension lead.

    The device is good it cleans well but it is quite heavy and the cable is far too short. I had to buy a single plug extension for it as I live in an open plan house and I couldn’t even get it to the end of the kitchen without having to unplug and find another socket. Admittedly I prefer my old vax (handle snapped after 3 years so thought I’d try something else)

    This is a really good product. It makes you want to mop the floor more often. The great thing is that it is so hot, it does not require detergent. It cleans with heat.
    I use it on tiles in the kitchen and wooden floors in the living space. So it gets used a lot. It heats up very quickly and is ready for use in seconds.
    The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that it should come with some replacement cloths because they get dirty quickly. I had to go and order them very quickly.

    I have the FC3 floor polisher which is good but not as easy and hygienic as this Sc2 really impressed it’s lightweight hygienic easy to assemble and use , but BUY extra towel mops they are easy to change , Velcro fastening but the steam will ensure you need extra mop heads to complete the job if you want to do large areas !

    Golden Review Award: 3 From Our UsersOverall I like this steam cleaner, less bulky then the ones I have previously owed. Great for wooden floors and floor tiles gets in to my grout. However the cable is ridiculous, I have had previous steam cleaners like Shark and I would only have to plug in once so I could do my hallway, living room, dining room and kitchen at the same time. With this steam cleaner I have to plug in, in every room which to me is a nightmare as you just want to get on with it. This would be 5 star if it wasn’t for the short cable! Great value though!

    I already own the cylinder Karcher SC4 steamer which is about 10 years old and still working perfectly (I only use filtered water to reduce limescale) but this model specifically for floors only is much better suited for this task.

    I much prefer steaming over mopping because to me, the floors feel properly clean. This Karcher leaves the vinyl with a matt finish, and based off the colour of the white cloths, it speaks for itself. Really easy to chuck these in the machine afterwards, it uses very little water, and its just much more pleasant not using chemicals.

    Its incredibly lightweight and easy to use, well-balanced and the swivel head makes it very nimble. It can rotate 90 degrees to get in very tight areas as I have shown in one of the photos (this isnt mentioned as a feature but few steam mops do this) This model is also ready to use in less than 40 seconds from plugging it in so its far quicker to grab and go compared to the SC4.

    I think this SC2 had some sort of pump to aid the pressure of the steam. I’ve not seen this with other mops, but it really helps. Even dried-on wet cat food is removed in one go.

    The floor head is also very low profile and fits a couple of inches under my fridge for example. Being a Karcher product, it feels very well made and is well designed. The microfibre pads are slightly larger than the head itself, so it cleans right up to the edge. I think many issues others have mentioned in terms of leaving the floors too wet come from people using this like a Vileda or Flash spray mop. As per the instructions of this device, push and pull the mop at no more than 12inches (30cm) per second, which is half the speed of vacuuming for reference. This won’t damage floors but creates enough heat for the water dry in 2-3 minutes. This also kills most bacteria using it at a slower speed.

    I also use filtered water form a Brita jug which goes a long way to reducing streaks on glossy surfaces, and protecting the steamer long term. It comes with a clever limescale cartridge which helps with this anyway.

    This doesn’t apply to me as I have all-sealed floors, but there is a parquet setting which reduces the amount of steam for unsealed or more delicate flooring.

    Karcher sell a carpet glider plastic attachment that can fit onto this, for freshening up carpets. I have it and its decently effective.

    Also, you can buy a pack of the velcro-backed microfibre pads from amazon (3rd party or genuine Karcher) cheaply. If you have a lot of hard floors, its worth buying some because the pads get dirty quickly.

    My only grip is the power cable; it could do with being half as long again.

    A much improved product over my previous Vac steam mop, but the power cable is much too short and the fact that the machine isn’t self-standing is annoying as I have to keep stopping to move the mop to the next power point.

    This is one of the best products I have ever used. I love steam cleaning my floors! It makes them shine and I love knowing the steam kills the germs, the matt picks up any dirt and the swivel handle gets into those really hard to clean corners beautifully. Just throw your dirty matt into the washing machine and it comes out clean and ready to be used again! Works so well on all floor surfaces of my house. Steam mop cleans my floors where damp moping still leaves a slight look of dirt. I highly recommend steam mop to make your hard floors look their best.

    Golden Review Award: 15 From Our UsersStill have the “cylinder” style SC3 when I bought this upright SC2. Keeping both for they have different advantages. The SC3 is light weight to use because most of the weight is sitting at the cylinder which is sitting on the floor. This upright is quick to put into action because it is already assembled whereas the SC3 had to be taken out of the box and things clipped together even before you fill it with water. So the SC2 is quick to get the weekly mop done but quick to tire you out as you have to push more weight around. This SC2 is good for floors but not much else where as the SC3 has attachments for cleanign walls and ovens etc. I have even bought the floor accessory which clips any old cloth into place although I do like the velcro attached EasyFix system. This is mainly because the EasyFix tool is thinner and can get under cupboards with less obstructions.
    With SC3 the combined cable and steam pressure hose means I don’t need extension cable during the mopping process but the SC2 it is necessary in order to reach everywhere. (This cable is 4.7m long but has no steam pressure hose to reach another metre.)
    I predict the SC3 will fail earlier than the SC2 because the steam pressure hose doesn’t come with piece of rubber cable gland protector; i.e. where the cable goes into the mop handle. As you push and pull the mop the hose flexes and chafs against the hard plastic recess of the handle, so this is where I predict it will fail first. Very annoying because almost all consumer electrical product, such as irons where the cable flexes a lot, would come with such a gland protector.

    This Karcher SC 2 Upright Easyfix Steam Cleaner is exactly what I wanted, no chemicals and no smears. It is so easy to use, weightless when handling and so adaptable. It glides along my wooden floors and tiles perfectly. The different settings are great for different flooring types. I would say that I have not used this mop on my expensive vinyl tiles as I did not want to damage the tile. The only negative I have is that you get one microfibre cloth. Ideally, you want two so that you can put one in the wash and use another. But overall, I am impressed. It heats up and is ready to use within just a minute. It takes less time than using a traditional mop or lug a steam machine around and leaves my floors hygienically clean.

    The use of steam to clean is well known and this Karcher steam cleaner uses that very well. The unit itself is nicely made. It is sturdy although doesn’t seem to like being stood up on its own, which is a little frustrating. Use is easy. Affix the microfibre cloth head and ensure you have the setting right to hard or stone floor. Initial turning on takes a little while to get going the first time. But once the steam gets going it is a very quick way to mop large hard floors, which we have. Compared to a traditional mop, the floors dry out so much more quickly and feel just cleaner. The microfibre head is easy to clean and the dirt it picked up was quite astonishing. The cord is quite long, although we could have done with a little more! But the cleaner is sturdy, very well made and oozes the quality you get with Karcher products. We have a few and they all have lasted years. The ease of using this steam cleaner and the results you get, make it a very useful cleaning aid. We won’t go back to the old mop and bucket.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersPerfect for tiled floors. Its easy to set up and use. It’s lightweight and easy to manovoure on the tiles so perfect for deep cleans without all the hard work. I love that it cleans without chemicals as I have young children so I don’t need to worry about them crawling or strong smells around them. The mop heats up really quickly so it’s not such an effort to use and is the perfect size for storing away in the utility cupboard. The cloth mop head is attached with velcro and washes well in the machine so no need to buy wipes or cleaning products for the mop. I really love it and definitely think it is worth the money as it gives such a superior clean to regular mops but isn’t much more effort plus I’m saving on floor cleaning products now. I would definitely recommend.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersThis Karcher SC-2 Steam Cleaner / Mop arrived in a Long Large Branded Box
    Very Well presented with illustrations Important information, Health Information and other model Tags displaying which one of the Family this is
    Right away out of the Box you can feel the Quality and difference from the typical cheaper ones at first it seems like its not working because it takes time for the presure and heat to build up once you have held the trigger down for around 50 seconds it starts to steam it will make a small vibration and pumping sound
    the floor piece is removable for cleaning and storage and sticks on with a strong velcro pad its white so in my house it won’t stay that way for long.
    but it can also be swilled in the sink or placed in the washing machine and its easy to use
    The swivel on the foot is good it sits flat well on the floor and pretty much glides without too much effort
    It is also very well made wwith a light weight frame a heavy duty handle and a good body most of the weight is in the body which helps when using it as it gives you a little more stability and control
    there is 2 settings on the handle one for hard floor and one for softer surfaces
    there is a filter that comes with it a Anti calcification filter which fits snugg in the water tank there is a level on the tank for the max fill line which is clear and when your using the Steamer the Red light will come on the Handle when the water needs a refil or is too low
    the steam is soft it doesn’t bellow out its more of a hot subtle steam but thorough the surface is prety much Dry right away and even after tilting etc there are no leaks or wet areas that would need further attention i was very impressed with this right out the box if i had one request it would be maybe design a telescopic Arm some how for easier storage and maybe some attachments for Corners etc
    but other than that there are 2 hooks for the cable to be wrapped on for storage and its not very big so fits under my stairs when not in use A very good product and i Can vouch for Karcher anyway as i already have 2 other products from them which i have had for years with out failure or issues My Jet wash works like new and its almost 10 years old
    if this is half as good i will be more than happy Solid 4.7 from me Simply Brillia

    Golden Review Award: 4 From Our UsersI have been using an older Vax steam mop which I thought was great until I tried this one. Although heavier this cleans very well. Very simple to use, you do not need to use descaled water or filter water, I can fill it up straight from the tap. It has quite a large water tank which last a fair while. I managed to do the kitchen, hallway and 2 bathrooms on the one tank before it needed refilling.

    Very easy to use with preset steam options. It was ready within seconds. The tigger control allowed me to use steam where I wanted it. It was a nice dry stream to which made the floor dry super quick. The steam got off dirty and marks off the floor but I found spraying it with some floor cleaner bedfore hand helped get the stubborn marks off even easier.

    Snapping the floor cloth on was very simple and it was washable so I can use it again and again. The whole device was made vry well, like all karcher stuff, it was robust and had a nice long cable, I did not need to use an extension. It was quick to put away after. It is now something I use all the time due to it’s quick start up and easy to use design.

    Golden Review Award: 5 From Our UsersThis product couldn’t be easier to use. You clip the head into the main body, attach the pad by lying it flat on the floor, and then just stand the head on it so the Velcro can attach, push the filter into place in the water tank, add water, and away you go! The pad is thick and durable, and has coped with laminated floors both upstairs and down, and also the woodblock flooring in the kitchen. Then I popped it in on a boil wash with a washing pod, and it is as good as new. The only thing I make sure to do is use all the water. And I never leave it in a horizontal position. Excellent piece of kit.

    Golden Review Award: 8 From Our UsersFunnily enough, I’d been looking for a replacement steam mop when this was offered to me through the Vine review scheme, as my 9 year-old Black and Decker multifunctional model had just given up the ghost. This is a good, practical, lightweight single purpose steam cleaner. On unboxing this (plastic bags round the components and moulded expanded foam pieces to hold the machine steady inside the box) I was pleased to note how light and slim the design is, and to discover the presence of a hard water filter cartridge to help extend the life of the mop in the face of our really quite nasty tap water. At time of writing, these replaceable cartridges cost around 12.30. There was also a single mop head cover (as I write, a spare pair costs just over 14).

    The mop heats up quickly — and is ready to go within 30 seconds, as promised — though does need a little bit of run-in after the installation of a new descaling cartridge. The water tank is easy to fill — you just lift off the back of the mop, and unscrew the lid — with a nice, wide opening allowing it to be filled directly from a tap.

    The mop works well on our hard floor surfaces — we have a mix of Thermastone (a surface treated, sealed, coloured cork), wood, LVT, and vinyl. Although the mop is suitable for sealed hard surfaces in general, there are only two settings on the handle: wood (gentle heat), and tile/stone (high heat). When switched on, this defaults to the higher setting, but to err on the side of caution I have used the lower setting on all of our hard flooring surfaces, none of which have the toughness of stone/tile. This cleans well and easily. The light weight and slim design make it easy to carry around the house, and to move between storeys.

    The mop is well made, and feels strong and durable despite its light weight. However, it is a single purpose mop — and whilst this might seem like a good idea if you only have hard floor surfaces, this doesn’t include a carpet glider if you have mixed flooring types, and doesn’t include a lift-off multipurpose steamer that can be used to clean bathroom and kitchen tiles, or for general, chemical-free, deep cleaning.

    Golden Review Award: 9 From Our UsersThis arrives in a fairly compact cardboard box and it does not take much to start using: attach the a soft cloth mop (via Velcro) to the mop head and the mop head to the main body of the steam cleaner; insert the decalcification cartridge and fill the water tank with cold water to the maximum level; plug in and select the setting; wait about 30 seconds for it to heat up before you steam clean your floor.

    This will clean a variety of sealed hard floors including tile, wood and vinyl. We used it on our kitchen floor, which are pottery tiles. It cleaned it well and very quickly; we only used about a third of the tank of water in doing so.

    The manufacturer claims that it will kill up to 99.99% of bacteria with a thorough clean and I have no reason to doubt this given the colour of the soft cloth mop after one use; this will be a boon to us as we have to clean the kitchen floor daily as the cats use this to access and return from the garden.

    It is also relatively light and the handle has some flexibility to allow you to easily clean under furniture etc. You only receive one soft cloth mop with the machine, but it is relatively inexpensive to purchase others; we have bought 5 (generic) ones for around 15 and, of course, the original and these are washable and reusable time and again. We are pleased with this purchase and are happy to recommend.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersThe package containing the cleaner was, to me, very compact and well presented. I’m afraid that I am one of those obsessives who reads manuals before using products, and the manual accompanyone this product seemed unnecessarily complex. It goes for days but all it really needs to say is unclip the water tank, insert the decalc module into the water tank, fill it to max level from the tap, clip the water tank back onto the main body, clip the head onto the body, attach the cleaning cloth to the head, plug in, and start cleaning,

    I was very pleased with the quality of cleaning and the speed with which I managed to get the kitchen floor absolutely spotless.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersI have a home with a mixture of laminated hardwood, stone tiles and lino, with children, cats and dogs running the show. Cleaning is a daily occurrence, as dirt, dust and pet hairs travel everywhere – so needless to say, I was excited about trying this steam cleaner, that I ge been seeing rave reviews for in magazines and on tv. But would it turn out to be empty hype, or something that actually would make cleaning as easy as claimed?

    I have a mixture of hardwood & tile flooring to test this on and so far it’s full marks all round. Normally I have to go over the same patch several times, but this has picked up all of the hair and other daily grime on the first sweep. Impressive – it makes the cleaning process quicker and with less tension in my arms. I don’t even need to refill the water tank during my daily sweep through our bungalow – the first fill is enough for me to clean all of the floors [between 5 to 10 minutes].

    The 30 second heat-up of the cleaner, easy handle adjustment to make the cleaner flat enough to fit under heavy tables, and the cleaner being light to use, combine to make cleaning quicker and more comfortable,in comparison to every other mop/steam cleaner/vacuum I’ve used over the years- so far I haven’t suffered any of my usual backaches afterwards.

    Golden Review Award: 19 From Our UsersI was totally surprised by the size of the box when it arrived, inside you had the main body of the mop, clip on the floor tool, stick on the cloth, and away I went.
    There also seems to be a descaling attachment which I didn’t pay any attention to when buying but actually this will be really useful living in a hard water area and I guess will ensure the longevity of the machine?!
    Overall really impressed and happy I opted for the mop version of a steam cleaner. My kitchen floors will be so much easier to clean and keep clean!

    A super lightweight, easy to assemble steam mop!
