Shark® APEX™ DuoClean® Powered Lift-Away® Vacuum

I never thought I would be one of those people who not only have one but have two inside dogs. Growing up we never had animals in our home. So in adulthood, I really never liked having inside pets. That is of course before I met Buster. Buster was a tiny pound puppy Dachshund mix that I fell in love with at first sight. He was so tiny, I had to keep him in the house and of course, if he wasn’t sleeping with me he would cry. Shortly after Buster, my husband decides he had to have a Dachshund too so we bought Butch, this was over ten years ago.

Needless to say, I spent many days vacuuming up dog hair. I wanted to make sure my dog-friendly home, didn’t look like a dog home. I have major allergies and sinus issues so it was important for me to keep dog hair to a minimum. I would vacuum almost daily to assure minimum dog hair. Recently I was introduced to the Shark® APEX™ DuoClean® Powered Lift-Away® Vacuum I was so shocked at how much dog hair my other vacuum missed.

It literally looked like a brand new carpet when I was finished vacuuming. This vacuum is the best vacuum I have ever used. I have stairs and always hated dragging the vacuum up and down. With this vacuum, you are able to lift just the canister and take it upstairs. I could vacuum spots I haven’t been able to in years because of how flexible the Shark Apex is.

Shark® APEX™ delivers Shark’s ultimate cleaning experience in a full-sized upright vacuum. Equipped with DuoClean® Technology, it grabs large particles, pulls in piles, and directly engages hard floors for a beautiful, polished look. Powered Lift-Away® Technology allows you to clean under furniture and above floors with the push of a button. LED lights on the handle and floor nozzle provide visibility in dark spaces, allowing for a thorough clean. The Deep-Cleaning Motorized Pet Tool stores onboard the vacuum and is perfect for quick pickups on upholstery.

  1. That sounds like a great vacuum. I love Shark. Their products always work so incredibly well. I’ll have to give this a look. Our vacuum has just about had it.

  2. This vacuum sounds great. I have a Wind Tunnel PAWS to clean up after my two big dogs and one cat and it does a good job. When my Wind Tunnel breaks down I’ll look into the Shark apex.

  3. I love that you can life the canister to vacuum stairs. That in itself is worth its weight in gold! I’ve never heard a negative review of Shark vacuums.

  4. We have a shark vacuum cleaner, not quite like this one, but I love it! It works great on stairs with the hand held part. I don’t think I’ll ever own another brand.

  5. I love our Shark vacuum cleaner. They make amazing home-care products. Never heard a bad thing about them.

    I am a vacuum aholic! I love vacuuming! This one looks amazing!! I love the lights it helps find all those hidden dirt particles.

  7. OK now this vacuum sounds next level! Those lights on it are perfect for getting into those dark corners! Love it!

  8. I need one of these desperately. Our vacuum died about 3 months ago and I have been trying to decide which one to get.

  9. I love that it helps with allergens! It looks super heavy duty and your stairs look SO clean! I really need a new vacuum mine is nearly shot! Will check out the Shark!

  10. Sounds like the kind of vacuum that I need in the house! I really appreciate you sharing this because the features are awesome! I can’t wait to get one!

  11. This looks awesome! We have a Siberian Husky and two cats so a super vacuum is very important in our home. The dog sheds twice a year and it’s pretty excessive. We’re in the market for a new vacuum soon!
