Review – Karcher Window Vac
Is the Karcher Window vac worth buying? We’ve been using it for a few weeks and these are our first thoughts…
It took a long time for us to buy a Karcher window vac. We were looking at them on-and-off for months trying to decide if it was going to be worthwhile or not. We live in a house that’s prone to condensation. Before moving in we had 2 surveys done to see why there was damp around the windows. Both came back saying there were no structural issues or leaks, it was just lots of condensation. One company kindly offered to charge me £1000 to drill a hole in the exterior wall which we politely declined.
We took the leap and decided to purchase the WV5 in December 2020 and I have to say, I am extremely impressed so far.
Which Is The Best Karcher Window Vac?
We decided on the WV5 for a few reasons. Firstly, the battery life is 35 minutes, compared to 20 minutes on the cheaper models. It also comes with a removable battery meaning you can charge one while you use the other. This gives us 70 minutes of continuous cleaning. This may seem excessive but when you consider that it also works on mirrors, shower screens and even tiles, you find yourself using it a lot while it’s out of the cupboard.
The KW5 also comes with a smaller head which can be used for smaller windows. I wasn’t sure how useful that would be but until you have to use the larger standard head, you don’t realise how many small windows you have it your house.
For a long time I thought that wiping the condensation off the windows with a microfibre cloth would be easier than buying a Karcher window vac but after a few short weeks of use I am seeing the long-term benefits. As the water is being removed completely it is not reappearing each morning. The windows looks great and – let’s be honest – it’s fun to use.
