Shark have been steadily growing their reputation for producing powerful vacuum cleaners at reasonable prices, to the point where they have become recognised as one of the go-to brands and are competing with the big boys.
The DuoClean is a corded upright that uses two cleaning technologies in one unit, this lets you move from carpets to hard floors without stopping and adjusting the settings. The two motorised brush-rolls work in unison in the floorhead drawing up large and small debris whilst lifting stuck-on dust. With the recent rise of cordless vacuums, it might seem like a step back to choose corded but you will be grateful for the power this machine produces all 750w of it and the 8m cord, 5.25kg weight and 28.5 x 26 x 118cm makes it easy to move around the house. The large 1.1L dust bin means you don’t need to empty it after every clean, it also comes with a crevice tool, multi surface tool and pet power brush. This vacuum is great for pet owners, in fact it has been built with these households in mind, with Lift-Away and Pet Tool functions, the Lift Away transforms the unit into a portable vacuum.
By lifting the detachable pod, it is an easier way to get to the upholstery, stairs and curtains, we know that pet hair can get everywhere. The purposefully designed Pet Tool can be used in Lift-Away mode to effectively remove embedded pet hairs from wherever they may be. There are LED headlights in the floorhead which illuminates the hidden dust and pet hair, the bagless design and Anti-Allergen Complete Seal captures and traps 99.9% of dust and allergens preventing them from being released back into the air.
Other features include the 67-145cm hose length, two power speeds to choose from and the flexible floor head makes moving around the house a breeze. The DuoClean comes with just the right amount of attachments you need, none of the pointless ones that get ignored in the cupboard. There is very little not to love about this vacuum, even cordless fans can be tempted back with the ease of use and powerful clean, if you have pets, family members with long hair or allergies this is a great choice.
