Here is a confession that I have mentioned before on the blog: I hate to clean. I know it has to be done and love the results but hate to do it. This includes vacuuming! Lugging a heavy vacuum all around the house and having to push it around just isn't fun. With that being said, I was recently sent a new vacuum and LOVE it!
The Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away vacuum is quite frankly the best vacuum I have ever used! Let me explain why.
*It's rather lightweight and not bulky. It's super easy to carry it around the house and has a rather small footprint when not in use.
*It practically vacuums for you. Ok well not really but it makes vacuuming so easy now. It maneuvers effortlessly. With the advances swivel steering, it definitely allows you to reach each and every nook, cranny and even under furniture.
*The suction is amazing. I thought my floors were pretty clean since having vacuumed the day before the Shark arrived. WRONG! The amount of dirt that the Shark picked up was honestly shocking.
*The hand controls. No more bending over to turn on the vacuum! The on/off switch is on the handle along with the 3 controls for vacuuming. Speaking of the hand controls: There are 2 for carpets: Area rugs or thicker carpets and thinner carpets. There is also one for bare floors. This comes in so handy as I have bare floors in my kitchen and in my bathrooms.
*I love love love that this vacuum comes with Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology! Did you know that most vacuums that have HEPA filters are unsealed and allow the dust and allergens that you just vacuumed up to be put back into the air? Not with the Shark! The Shark has a Sealed HEPA System Captures & Holds over 99.99% of dust & allergens inside the vacuum, NOT back into the air you breathe.
* 3 Vacuums in 1 is a fabulous idea. I don't want to have to purchase 3 different vacuums to get the job done. The Shark is a standard upright, lift-away pod and canister with caddy. This has made my cleaning so much easier. I have a set of stairs in my home and vacuuming them has always been a huge hassle but not anymore. The lift-away pod has been a total life saver. The Shark also has a 30 foot cord that has helped with cleaning larger areas at once before unplugging to move to another area.
Vacuuming for the company that came for Thanksgiving was a total cinch. Honestly I now don't mind having to vacuum. It's easy and my carpets look much nicer than they have in a long time.
With Christmas and other holidays coming up, I know my home and carpets will be amazingly clean with the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away Vacuum as my secret weapon.
This made it into my Holiday Gift Guide because I truly believe every household needs one. While it may not be a traditional gift, I believe anyone that receives this will wonder how they lived without it.
I barely touched on the features of this fantastic vacuum but you can read more about it HERE.
Price - Now here is where my frugal side kicks in a tad. The retail is $299 - $349 depending on where you purchase. While that is a lot of money, the Shark does have a lifetime warranty when purchased direct from Shark. I also believe it's worth every penny after having used it for a couple weeks now.
