What polishes your flooring while also softly scrubbing away dirt and grime? The Shark Apex Vacuum Cleaner, of course, the best vacuum for tile floors. And don\u2019t you worry about carpets either\u2014it can transition back and forth between two, making it the ideal candidate as the best vacuum for carpet too!\r\n\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Shark Apex Vacuum Cleaner\r\nIncorporating a dual brush system and 1350W of suction power, the Shark Apex Vacuum Cleaner ensures that no amount of debris is safe from its deep cleaning abilities.\r\n"\r\nPower\r\nThe kind of power you can expect from the Shark Apex Vacuum Cleaner is the ability to easily lift pet hair from your carpets, directly competing with the Dyson V11 Vacuum. In other words: 1350 watts of suction power takes you a long way.\r\nSpeed & Efficiency\r\nThis Shark vacuum\u2019s cleaning path isn\u2019t different from any typical vacuum cleaner, which is about 12 inches wide. Floor cleaning doesn\u2019t have a prayer as its DuoClean technology polishes the floors while deeply cleaning carpets at the same time. Afterwards, attach a crevice tool and take care of your furniture or lift pet hair with the upholstery tool.\r\nBin Capacity & Maintenance\r\nAfter some consideration, it\u2019s in agreement 1.5 quarts capacity is a bit on the small side. To be fair, if you\u2019re cleaning regularly, that isn\u2019t going to be a problem at all. Unfortunately, it doesn\u2019t have a self cleaning brushroll like its brother, so you\u2019ll have to clean that occasionally. Again, not that big of a deal.\r\nDurability\r\nWhile still made of plastic, the Shark Apex DuoClean Upright Vacuum Cleaner manages to not appear cheap in any sense of the word. In fact, it\u2019s quite sturdy; it needs to be considering it has a lift away function for the bin, if you want to vacuum the stairs without taking the whole machine.\r\nValue\r\nAt first glance, $499 might seem steep\u2014and it\u2019s certainly a pretty penny\u2014but the Shark Apex Vacuum Cleaner offers top to bottom cleaning. You get several attachments, like a floor nozzle and crevice tool, and more\u2014something the Hoover Linx lacks. It\u2019s also easier to maneuver than a Miele Blizzard CX1. And cheaper than said vacuum.\r\nShark Apex Vacuum Cleaner Wrap Up\r\nDespite its cost, the Shark Apex Vacuum Cleaner is everything you\u2019d want out of a powerful vacuum for top to bottom cleaning. Its dual cleaning head alone ensures you should only have to make one pass through, supported by 1350W of suction power. And knock away the challenge of stairs by lifting the canister off the base and going mobile.
