What is Shark known for?

Shark’s cleaning appliances won’t cost you a fortune, and tend to do a good job. Most of its vacs have anti-hair wrap technology, so you won’t be pulling your hair out trying to untangle any. The cordless models have a run time enough to clean most of your house. Its corded range has DuoClean technology, suited to clean hard floors and carpets. Its handhelds are lightweight and easy to use in tight areas and won’t take up storage space.

Shark makes quality vacuum and carpet cleaners that’ll last a while if you treat them right. Make sure to choose the right one though, as its models are designed for different purposes.
