Karcher's steam method to kill bacteria without using chemicals

In response to the increasing environmental awareness in the Middle East KÄRCHER, a German company and the world's leading provider of cleaning systems, cleaning products and services, has introduced a cleaning method that cleans more hygienically, as it kills bacteria without using chemicals.

With growing scientific evidence that allergies are triggered by house dust, mites and residual detergents on floors and surfaces, Karcher has developed a steam method that allows normal household cleaning without chemicals and detergents

“Our research has focused on how to best design a product that is efficient, effective, environmentally friendly, more hygienic, safe and well designed. We believe that we're leading the way in transforming the way cleaning around the house is done,” commented Richard Nouira, managing director, Karcher Middle East.

Endorsed by the British Allergy Foundation, Karcher's SV 1802 steam vacuum cleaner can perform every cleaning job without the need for chemicals. The steam removes loose dirt and caked-on grime quickly and reliably from a wide variety of floor coverings, including carpets and PVC, natural stone and tiled floors. They make floor scrubbers superfluous because they use steam to clean hygienically in a single operation. The hot steam loosens even grease and stubborn stains and the floor nozzle sucks up any dirt immediately. There is no need to wipe the floor afterwards. Four suction settings and five steam flow settings can be regulated independently.

Instead of being sucked into a dust bag, dirt is drawn into a water filter, where it is bound. The container has an additional capacity of up to 0.6 litres to accommodate any spilled liquids picked up. A coarse dirt filter, a foam filter and a HEPA filter that reliably traps allergenic particles such as pollen, fungus spores, bacteria and mite secretions keep the indoor air clean.

“By using steam rather than products which contain additives or chemicals, the steam vacuum cleaner SV 1802 is both environmentally friendly and helps your family to avoid strong cleaning products without the sacrifice of an hygienic living environment,” added Nouira.

An extensive range of accessories provides a fitting solution for almost any problem, whether it is cleaning taps, mirrors and tiles or grouting, radiators and indoor plants. One especially practical feature is that the floor, hand or pencil jet nozzle can be used to vacuum up immediately any dirt the steam has dislodged. The lowest steam setting can also be used to freshen up carpets, garments and curtains, while the highest setting can even be used for steam ironing. Two models of iron are available as special accessories.

Karcher steam cleaners comply with all safety standards and have received certification from German and international testing authorities.

Kärcher products are sold in 190 countriesgenerating sales of 1.4 billion Euro worldwide. They are manufactured in 12 plants and supported by a network of more than 40,000 international service points. Kärcher is introducing the latest innovative range of domestic cleaning equipment in the region. These products are highly efficient, user friendly, fitted with convenient features and come in attractive designs.
