Know how to pick the best Shark vacuums

Selecting a Shark vacuum can be a daunting task, especially with the wide range of models with confusing features, it can be difficult to find one which will meet your requirement. Ideally, the model should cater to your specific requirements. The model which works on a hardwood floor may not be suitable for carpeted interiors. And if you have a pet, you already know that keeping your house free of its hair is your primary concern.

For hardwood floors
Hardwood floors require special care and attention in terms of cleaning. Rubber caps on wheels and padding are a must-have to prevent accidental scratches. Look for a vacuum, which allows you the option of detaching the rotating beater brush. Opt for efficient motors featuring a powerful suction. A combination of a mop, a broom and suction are most suitable for hardwood floors.

Suggested options:

  • Shark Lift-Away NV650
  • Shark Navigator Lift-Away NV356

For Pet hair
Pet owners are always on the lookout for the magic equipment, which could free their cars, clothes and carpets of the stubborn hair. These are some useful features in a vacuum for cleaning pet hair:

  • A powerful suction
  • Detachable vacuum pods, which suck up hair from inaccessible corners
  • Motorized brush attachment, which is essential for removing pet hair and grime that cling to your carpets
  • An upholstery tool, which allows you to sweep your upholstery
  • Special attachments which can reach crevices

Suggested options:

  • Shark rotator NV752

Other specific requirements
In case you suffer from dust allergies, a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter is what you should be looking for. Most vacuums filter the air they release into the room, but HEPA clears the air from almost 99% dust and particulate matter. Look for a model which comes with versatile attachments that can be used for multiple surfaces. For example, the genie attachment on the Shark Rotator is capable of cleaning floors as well as carpets.

If you have a large house or a greater surface area to cover, upright models with adjustable height would be more suitable for you. If you prefer a quick clean-up or need to carry your vacuum to your car or an outside area frequently, you may opt for models, which can be powered by a battery. With a Shark vacuum, you have the option to choose from a range of additional features including LED lights, fingertip controls and swivel steering. Noise from the vacuum cleaner can be particularly irritating, especially if you have to use them for several hours in a row. It is best to check the noise ratings of a particular model, beforehand.

Some Shark vacuum models like Shark rotator N752 allow you to detach the upright shaft and use it more like a canister vac. Some customers do not appreciate the design of Shark rockets; they find the motor placed near the handle rather inconvenient. But, there are others who just love it. The idea here is to concentrate on your individual design preference while selecting a model.
