Our hard floor cleaning correspondent, Derek Adams, recently tried out the Kärcher SC3 Upright EasyFix and he hasn't been so excited in years. The steam mop scored a full 5 stars and a T3 Platinum Award, and as if to celebrate, it turns out that it's also available at a knock-down price right now, at practically any retailer you care to visit.

ALSO ON SALE: Karcher has also cut the price of the standard model of the SC3 Upright. It's functionally identical to the Premium one but comes with one microfibre cloth instead of three. Oh and it's yellow, as you can see.

If you want an even cheaper option, there's also money off the SC2. It's got a slightly smaller tank and no carpet mode but is otherwise all but identical to the pricier SC3. Deals on the SC2 are on at multiple retailers right now but AO has edged it with an extra £5 off.
Why you should buy a Kärcher Upright steam mop
Just take a look at our Kärcher SC3 Upright EasyFix Premium review! There, we said that this upright steam mop is 'a superb steam cleaner that's perfect for most types of hard floor, and can even be used to 'refresh' thin-pile carpet. It’s relatively light in the hand, easy to use and one of the most effective ways to clean a floor right down to microscopic level,' concluding that it comes, 'Hotly recommended.'
We praised its effectiveness on multiple floor types, but the SC3 scored particularly highly on tiles, where it transformed the floor's colour from 'a sort of faint yellow' to 'a more whiteish tone, leaving our reviewer 'gobsmacked'. You can't say fairer than that.
It's also worth noting that as well as cleaning, steam kills up to 99.999% of bacteria on your floors. That's great news for clean fiends and anyone who wants to sterilise their bathroom, kitchen or kids' room. Or any other room, come to that.
