YOU TOO CAN FIND THIS KIND OF LOVE
Reviewed in the United States on July 13, 2018
Let me first start off by saying... I've kissed a lot of vacuum frogs in my life. My relationship with this appliance has been turbulent and unfulfilling in the best of times. And it would inevitably end in some violence - on my part. I'm not proud of this. But, there's no doubt, vacuum cleaners were my most hated appliance.
But now, for the first time, I am in love! I adore this vacuum. I gush about my Shark when given the opportunity.
First off, I always found my ex-vacuums to be obnoxiously loud. Like a 747 plane. I would always put earplugs in my ears when I vacuumed. Fast forward to my Shark's arrival and I was so excited, I started using it right away. When I was done with one room, I then realized I forgot my earplugs! That doesn't mean it's quiet, it's just not a 747. More like a two-seater plane.
Second, some of my old vacuums (some bagged, some canister) I could swear spewed dust into the air. My Shark doesn't seem to do this, since it has a nice, thick filter (which is a round, tube-shaped sponge) that can be washed. This is really important. Who wants to clean the house, only to have dust spit out into the air?!
Third, it's pretty easy to clean. You soap up and rinse the canister and let air dry before putting it back in place. WAYYYY better than those horrible vacuum bags. I don't miss those things.
And it swivels like a Dyson! But cheaper. The suction is fabulous. Though one day suction was not good and I couldn't find a blockage in the tube. I was worried that my Shark wasn't my dreamboat after all. But then I looked down and saw this round compartment near the back wheel that had debris. I bent down and realized the cover/cap was removable. I was able to remove the debris and put the cap back. Suction was back to normal!
And the body of the Shark can be lifted off of the base if you need to do stairs or high-reaching areas!
It's the real deal people. And you too can find this kind of love.
