The Numatic Charles is a key part of the Henry vacuum range with the ability to work both wet and dry, he is guy you call upon when water has gotten to where it should not be, or when you need to dry down flooring at the end of a good mopping session. He is capable of carrying out cleaning tasks on carpets and hard floors, and then quickly change to take on spills, floods, blocked sinks and other wet applications.
When cleaning in dry mode you will find Charles is the king of the carpets, he has a huge dust bag capacity when compared to Henry, and still has HepaFlo dust bags and giant dry filters that seldom need cleaning.
When changing from one task to the other all that you need to do is remove the large dry filter and HepaFlo dust bag, and drop in the wet float, job done! You can then commence sucking up water and other spilt fluids.
If you need a machine solely for sucking up water from hard floors and other wet cleaning tasks that you can also use a daily dry vacuum cleaner then yes, you will likely find Charles to be just what you need. However, if you are looking for something that can do all of the above, and also shampoo your carpets you should maybe consider the George Vacuum.
Although Charles will undoubtedly spend most of his life in dry mode keeping your carpets, curtains, floors, and skirting boards free of dust you can rest assured that when the need arises he will be there ready to take on muddy water walked in by a wet dog, or a flood from a split pipe.
He is well equipped, he is fitted with a 1060W Twinflo motor delivering plenty of suction where and when it is needed most. When it comes to capacity, Charles can accommodate 15 litres of dry waste and 9 litres of water, this is more than enough for the average household. An aluminium and plastic accessory set ensures that he keeps his weight down and is not too heavy, it makes cleaning with him easy and non-strenuous.
