Karcher SC1020 Steam Cleaner Review

Karcher SC1020

karcher sc1020 steam mop cleaner reviewsThe Karcher SC1020 is a very compact steam mop, with a vacuum cleaner like design. With a water tank of a litre, a child safety lock and 3.2 bar pressure, the SC1020 is well worth the price. That said, it takes around the 8 minute mark from switching on actually being able to use the steamer – a fairly long wait compare to other cleaners. As with all steam mops we’ve reviewed, the benefits are endless when using steam for cleaning. They kill the majority of bacteria, which is perfect for those with children (especially small babies crawling around floors) and those with dogs and cats. The beauty of this Karcher machine is that it also doubles as a steam cleaner as well as a mop. You can use the nozzles and hand tools supplied for other areas within the home such as tiles in the bathroom or kitchen, the grime around taps, particular spots that need that extra strength to remove dirt and perhaps you may want to use the brush for areas with cracks. It’s very simply to store this product away – Karcher have taken care not to assume everyone lives in a huge house! You can use the steam mop for over 20 minutes before needing to refill the tank. Not bad really. Let’s look at the list of features and benefits of buying the Karcher SC1020…

“Karcher products are extremely reliable, seeing as I own other products made by them. I love the fact that it’s small and tidies away neatly into my store cupboard. Carrying around is a doddle because of the well designed shape and handle. I also like the safety valve which most steam mops should include.” Mrs Daley


- Much easier to store than most upright steam floor cleaners
- Lightweight structure so less difficult to move around the home
- No need to buy a separate steam cleaner
- Multiple accessories to make the cleaning jobs easier
- Child proofing means one less thing to worry about when the kids are around
- Should be enough time (over 20 minutes) to get all the cleaning completed


- An 8 minute start up time is a little long
