The one thing you can control amidst the chaos is the cleanliness of your home.

Once again, I’m back with another cleaner review. This time, it’s the Kärcher FC 7 Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner - an award-winning machine that cuts cleaning time by 50% while increasing cleanliness by 20% compared to a traditional mop. Launched in late February in New Zealand, I’ve had some time to play with this innovative floor cleaner and if you’re looking for a TLDR recap, I can let you know right now that it’s incredibly easy to use and your floors will sparkle like a freshly whitened row of teeth.

While working from home, we tend to change up our workstation from the bedroom to the couch and the kitchen. But wherever we decide to set up, there’s something about making the space immaculate that gives the feeling of heightened productivity as well as a sense of control.

Competing against 10,000 rival entries from 52 countries, the Kärcher FC 7 swept up (hehe punny) the International Forum Design Award and I can totally understand why.

The Kärcher FC 7 Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner is cleverly designed to clean and sanitise floors without the need to vacuum and sweep first. It’s perfect for the time-poor person who needs to clean up efficiently.

It has a two-tank system; one with fresh water and one for dirty waste water; which means your rollers will always be soaked in fresh water while cleaning your floors instead of murky water from a bucket that you have to drag around.

Secondly, the four cleaning rollers have the ability to counter-rotate, allowing your floor cleaner to glide back and forth effortlessly to pick up wet and dry dirt. It even has a hair filter with a blade, so you don’t need to pick up your strands on the bathroom floor before you start mopping.

There are two different cleaning modes to choose from as well as a boost function for stubborn dirt. And the Karcher Floor cleaning Universal RM (cleaning agent) that comes with the FC 7 is incredible. It allows the water to dry super quickly after cleaning and leaves it glistening!

I did think that the cleaning experience would be pretty hands off but the dirty water tank capacity is 200ml while the fresh water tank capacity is 400mls. So, you do have to empty out the tank as you go, especially if you’ve got a lot of surface area to cover or if you’re using a higher setting that uses more water.

It has a battery running time of 45 minutes so you’ll most likely get all your mopping done well before the battery runs out.

When you’re done with the machine, there’s a self-cleaning mode that uses a full tank of fresh water and all you have to do is air-dry the parts and chuck the rollers in the washing machine.

I have hard floors only in my kitchen, bathrooms and foyer - and I think the FC 7 is much needed for someone like me who only has a portion of her home with hard floor areas. So, if you’ve got wooden floors and tiles for your entire home, ditch the Dyson because you won’t regret forking out $1k for a cleaning tool like this.
