Shark APEX Powered Lift-Away Vacuum

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. 

I’ve used more than my fair share of vacuums. From bagged to bagless, corded to cordless, handheld, stick, I’ve seen and used it all. Some models have proven themselves useful and even lasted for years while others left me sorely disappointed. When it comes to vacuums all are not created equal. Some perform much better than others. At the tippy top of the vacuum food chain is the Shark APEX DuoClean Powered Liftaway Upright. It’s like the apex predator of dirt.

Some vacuums are really good at picking up larger particles and some are really good at sucking the dust out of everything. What makes the Shark APEX Powered LiftAway unique is it’s great at both. Equipped with DuoCLean Technology this vacuum uses a bristle brush to rake in the larger particles and power through deep carpets while simultaneously engaging your floor with a soft brush roll that works amazingly at stealing away all the small stuff. The brush and roller combined with industry leading suction power work together to provide you with one of the best overall cleaning experiences available on the market today.

In Powered Lift-Away mode, you can detach the canister to get to those hard to reach spots. For the even harder to reach areas you can use one of several handy attachments. The handiest of which (If you’re a pet owner like me) is the motorized on-board pet tool. This thing is your pet hair’s worst nightmare. Just grab it, attach it, and you can suck up every strand of animal hair from your upholstery, carpet, or pet furniture with minimal effort.

Active-Glide technology makes the Shark Apex a smooth operator on carpets and bare floor. Every time I use it I’m amazed at how maneuverable this machine is. It swivels around obstacles easily and comes apart in all the right places to reach areas most vacuums just can’t. I’ve never cleaned with anything quite like it.

The Shark Apex is not only extremely efficient, and highly maneuverable, it also runs quieter than you would expect.  Noise reduction technology enables you to clean the floor in relative stealth. It’s like a vacuum machine with a built-in sound suppressor. Quite impressive really.

Got allergies? Shark APEX’s Anti-Allergen Complete Seal emits 10x fewer particles than sealed HEPA standards require making it ideal for allergy sufferers.

When you have kids, sooner or later you’re bound to vacuum up something too big and end up with a clog. With some vacuums, you can spend a lot of time chasing a blockage. Not with the Shark Apex though. This vacuum detaches unbelievably easy in more places I’ve ever seen. If something gets stuck in there you can find the problem, eliminate it, and be on your way in record speed.

If you’re looking for an all-around great vacuum the Shark Apex is pretty much as good as it gets. It powers through carpets thick and thin. It’s even great on bare floors. This vacuum can pick up both large and small particles down to the finest dust and empties super easy with the press of a button. Use it for 5 minutes and I can all but guarantee you’ll be impressed.
