Shark APEX DuoClean vacuum review – cleans up cereal without crushing it or making a mess

Hi all! It’s Erica, one of Collin’s sidekicks!

If you’re in the market for a new vacuum, I have something AMAZING to share with you! In the world today, there are so many options to choose from when making the decision to buy a new vacuum. I mean… it’s pretty overwhelming.

It’s like going out to dinner when the menu is ten pages long (*cough* The Cheesecake Factory!)… 😫

Anyway, just this year, my Dyson stick cordless vacuum broke. I was secretly excited when this happened because I wasn’t much of a fan. The Dyson was great, just not great for ME. I have two toddlers that make messes constantly and the Dyson couldn’t stay on for more that 20 minutes without having to be back on its charging station.

So when it broke, I was ready to research which vacuum would be best for our family.

What I picked….

The Shark APEX DuoClean Powered Lift-Away Upright Vacuum! 

Now that is a lot of words for one product I tell ya, but it deserves every word.

You guys, I am so impressed with this vacuum. I feel almost like we have a new member of our family living in our household. I am only 30, but I have to say in all my years, I’ve never had a vacuum that has done the job like this Shark APEX Vacuum!

Here’s why I love it…

Number 1.

What I love the absolute MOST is that you can literally roll over Cheerios or any larger elevated piece or crumb on the floor without pieces shooting everywhere! I have NEVER owned a vacuum that would complete this task.

Other vacuums would crush up the Cheerios and spit them out the sides. OR I would have to pick up the vacuum and set it right on the Cheerios to get them sucked up. Sometimes, I would even have to step on them and crush them first on the floor before vacuuming them. 😂

This vacuum features a bristle brush to deep clean carpets and an additional soft roller brush to pull in larger particles and directly engage floors for a polished look (and it does just that – I’m not having to mop my floors nearly as much).

Number 2. 

I also love that this vacuum goes right from carpet/rugs to tile or hardwood floors! And it features powered lift away technology that allows you to pull it away from the body so you can go under beds, tables, desks, etc. The vacuum can go anywhere!

Number 3.

This vacuum has smooth maneuverability on floors and carpets while maintaining powerful suction, powerful suction, and more powerful suction. Oh my word… I can’t explain enough how powerful the suction is on this vacuum. It actually pulls you if you’re not holding on tight because the suction is just that awesome. 😍

Number 4. 

IT HAS A CORD AND I LIKE IT! Like I mentioned above, my last vacuum had to always go back to the charging station before I was done cleaning. With a cord, this vacuum can last for however long I need it!

And I have to admit, I was a little embarrassed when I first got this and vacuumed an 8’X 5′ rug and filled the entire canister with dirt. It was CRAZY. Just thinking about all the dirt and dust that sat on my rugs and floors grosses me out to this day.

And no, shark did not pay me for this recommendation.
