A few decades ago, choosing a vacuum cleaner was as simple as checking to make sure it actually picks up dirt. However, there is a myriad of choices available for vacuums nowadays. With all of these choices, it can be overwhelming to find the best one for your needs.
For these reasons, we’ve made this checklist covering Shark vacuum cleaners. In this checklist, we’ll cover all the things you need to know to help you choose the best Shark vacuum cleaner for your needs.
Do You Want the Constant Power Supply of a Corded Vacuum or the Portability of a Cordless Vacuum?
The first thing you need to consider is whether you need a constant power flow or focus on portability. When choosing which is important to you, consider the size of your home and your family.
For example, if you have a smaller home with big messes, you may want the constant power supply from a corded vacuum. However, if you have a big house, you may want to opt for the portability of a cordless vacuum so you’re not constantly plugging and unplugging your vacuum from room to room.
In addition, corded vacuums typically have more suction power than cordless vacuums. Therefore, if you have kids who make frequent messes, then you may want the suction power of a corded vacuum to handle any hard-to-clean dirt and debris.
So, if a powerful corded Shark vacuum is more your style, you should consider the Shark Rotator Lift-Away ADV vacuum. This vacuum provides a constant power supply while still offering portability thanks to its lift-away canister.
If you instead want to work with a cordless vacuum, the Shark Vertex Pro Lightweight may be the perfect fit. This lightweight, cordless vacuum cleaner offers maximal portability with a comfortable-to-carry weight. In addition, with a full battery, it can run for as long as 60 minutes.
Do You Need a Full-Size Vacuum?
Have you considered whether or not you even need a full-size vacuum in your house? If you don’t have much carpet to clean, a full-size vacuum may be overkill for your home. In this case, you need to consider how frequently you need to vacuum or sweep up minor messes and where they are.
For example, if your home is multi-story, you’ll need to clean up dirt and debris upstairs and downstairs, meaning portability and lighter weight are essential factors for your needs. On the other hand, if you have a single-story home, you won’t need to worry about lugging your cleaning supplies around.
So, if you have a multistory home with only a few messes to clean up, your best option is likely the Shark WANDVAC Handheld vacuum. This lightweight vacuum cleaner is the perfect way to clean up no matter where the messes are in your home.
If you have a single-story home and only small messes to worry about, you may want to choose the Shark AI Robot Vacuum. This handy robot vacuum can zip around your single-story house without the worry of falling down any stairs while handling all of life’s little messes for you.
If your house is primarily solid floors, such as hardwood, throughout, you may not need a traditional vacuum at all. Some people find a regular vacuum handy in place of a broom for their hard floors. However, Shark offers a hard floor steam vacuum perfect for homes without carpeting.
The Shark Steam & Scrub provides the versatility of a vacuum in the form of a powered mop. The Steam & Scrub has two powered mop heads that scrub at 150 rotations per minute combined with its steam feature to remove stuck-on messes.
