Sure, can. It'll be good to get one. Not only can we clean the car interior but also the house cushions, sofa, carpets, pillows, and bed. I think definitely worth the price.

Chris

No cushions, sofa are leather, no carpets, not for my type of pillows, maybe the bed....... smile_wink.gif
But still think if not used often, not worth to get unless you have the budget..... smile_approve.gif

Any other brand available in MY??

So far only found Karcher ann Polti. I am aiming on Kacher SC1402 or SC1502. The price not cheap!!!

Perhaps:

Piuneer Super Steam Cleaners

Technicken Industrial

Ecovitta

But, frankly, all of them pale in comparison to Karcher.

Karcher Malaysia told me that they can do a demo on some of their models...may give them a try....... smile_thumbup.gif !!!

Yes, no harm in having a look-see. Karcher service is quite good though they have an annoying habit of asking me if I bought their product in Singapore or Malaysia every time!

Anyway, whenever I email them an enquiry, they would reply my email promptly (within working days) and call me on my HP if I don't reply back!

They didn't try to be pushy at all. More like answer my questions. After that I said, "Ok, thank you." They said, "Your welcome. Good bye." smile_thumbup.gif

Actually Karcher Singapore is more established than here. We get our Karcher stuff via Singapore.

Malaysia either no distributor or same one from Singapore...... smile_tongue.gif
For power washer, Singapore difficult to sell because those in apartment have no place to wash their car, some more with them need power source. Heard some even have cordless RB or bring generator along..... smile_blackeye.gif

Yes, I am working on the pros and cons of having a combo or separate units.

I like separate units because I would like a wet-dry vac to suck up liquid water when I chemically (not steam) clean, for example, my sofa especially when there is a stubborn stain I can't rid off using steam.

I like a separate steam cleaner because I like to clean tiles, kitchen top, soft toys, and so on.

But then I also like combo unit so I can do both jobs at once! Saves time and effort. I wonder if there is any difference in the cleaning effectiveness of 2-in-1 jobs and steam first, then wet vacuum.

Oh well, might as well get all: a 2-in-1 combo, a steam cleaner, and a wet-dry vacuum!

Getting 3 may be more costly, but in case one fails and need repairs, you can still work with the other two. For 3 in 1, any one fail, you don't have any to work with..... smile_blackeye.gif
