The Best Small Home Vacuum Cleaner (A Review)
I’ve had this Shark Navigator Lift-Away vacuum cleaner for about a year and this baby has never disappointed!
All of the following points (from the description on Amazon) are why I love this vacuum:
- Lift-Away. Press a button to lift the canister away and easily clean hard-to-reach areas.
- Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology + a HEPA filter. Traps 99.9% of dust and allergens inside the vacuum.
- Powerful and lightweight. Portable and versatile at only 12.5 lbs
- Brushroll Shutoff. Deep carpet and gentle bare floor cleaning.
- Swivel Steering. Excellent control for maneuvering around furniture.
- The product comes with Wide Pet Upholstery tool, does not have pet power brush
It proved it’s sweet disposition just this past few days when I got home a four-month trip.
I live in Arizona and from what I’m hearing, the annual monsoon season was apparently as good/bad as it gets. It not only brings massive rains, it brings dust storms called Haboobs that rival any rainstorm.
In fact, here’s a video of a haboob moving into Phoenix:
But I digress!
So I came home to a screened in porch that was so full of sand/dust that even though I had my furniture covered well, there were literally puddles of sand on all of the covers. Wish I’d have taken pictures. But I didn’t.
The floor and the outdoor area rug on the floor had a layer of sandy dust, as well, of course. The walls and screens were not spared, either.
It wasn’t pretty.
I was kind of sorry I hadn’t enclosed that room.
My Shark Navigator Lift-Away to the rescue!
First, I vacuumed the furniture covers using the detachable hose and the dusting brush attachment. Honestly, the suction was so strong it lifted the fabric!
After I removed the covers and stowed them in my storage room, I vacuumed the walls and the screens and then hit the floor and the area rug.
It was easy peasy and the room looks as good as new.
My Shark is small, lightweight and just right for my small home. But Shark makes a series of vacuum cleaners that range from a super lightweight model to heavyweight. Pet hair is no match for the True-Pet upright model.
You’ve heard of the iRobot Roomba? Well, Shark makes a robot vacuum, too, with one-hour cleaning time. It’s the Shark ION Robot Vacuum and you can either get it so it works with wifi and Alexa or without. How cool is that?
Yes, I’ll happily promote Shark products because I know they work.
Thanks for stopping by. I’d love to hear your experience with Shark products, too, whether you’ve had a good experience or a not-so-good experience. Leave a comment. And stay tuned!
