With flu season on the horizon, I've been thinking of ways to keep my family healthy. One of the proactive ways I do this is by keeping my house as clean and germ-free as possible. When I had the opportunity to try a new vacuum - the Shark Rocket Complete with Duo Clean Technology - I jumped at the chance to keep my floors and furniture spotless! Little did I know I would be able to clean WAY more using this amazing vacuum. Check out my full review.
Thanks to Shark for sending me this vacuum!
Shark Rocket Complete with Duo Clean Technology Review
My husband and I have a toddler, an infant, and two cats so we're no strangers to mess. I feel like I'm constantly sweeping, vacuuming, or scrubbing just to keep up! We have mostly hardwood floors plus a couple of area rugs so I thought the Shark Rocket Complete would be a great addition to my regular cleaning tools. Set-up was a breeze with great photo instructions.
As soon as I finished setting it up (which took about ten minutes to read through the instructions and five to put it together) I wanted to try it out on my area rug. We recently adopted our second kitten from a shelter so our cat hair has doubled. With a ten-month-old crawling around I try to keep the hair cleaned up because otherwise, it goes right in his mouth!
I was immediately impressed with how lightweight the Shark Rocket Complete is. It weighs about ten pounds and pushes SO easily. I was impressed but also disgusted by the amount of hair and dust the vacuum picked up with just a few sweeps over my area rug. With the combination of the Soft Brushroll and the Bristle Brushroll, it was able to pick up visible particles (aka cracker crumbs) and embedded fine dirt from the carpet.
The next test was on our dining room floor. With two kids under four, we always have messes to clean up after snacks and meals. Our new kitten loves to eat everything our kids drop but that's not always a good thing. I try to clean up after every meal but I get SO sick of sweeping because I always seem to miss something. I tried the Shark Rocket out after my son finished his snack and you can see in the photo above exactly where I vacuumed-perfectly clean! The swivel-head makes it easy to get around high chair legs. I love that I can go straight from my area rug to my floor without changing any settings, too.
After vacuuming all my floors (because I was seriously having fun!) I tried out the handheld feature. It is so simple to remove the hand vacuum and connect various attachments. I used the motorized brush on our couch and it took care of all the cat hair with no problem. I love that the Shark Rocket Complete has LED lights to guide and highlight the area I'm vacuuming. The ergonomic handle and fingertip controls make it easy to use with one hand.
There are many accessory options that come with Shark's Rocket Complete:
- Under Appliance Wand - Adjustable length 36-inch tool for accessing and cleaning under and behind hard to move appliances and furniture, or in any tight area. This worked great under my couch and to vacuum the top of our living room fan.
- Upholstery Tool - Picks up pet hair and large piles of debris from mattresses, couches, curtains and other delicate fabrics.
- Duster Crevice Tool - Crevice tool gets into tight spaces, between couch cushions and hard to reach areas; extend the bristle head to the tip for fine dusting of furniture and delicate objects. The bristle head is removable, giving extended reach with the crevice tool.
- TruePet Motorized Brush - The power of an upright in the palm of your hand. Picks up pet hair, loose debris, and powerfully deep cleans dander out of upholstery and surfaces.
- Dusting Brush - Great for dusting a multitude of surfaces such as shelves, tables, baseboards, window/door frames, and much more.
The vacuum comes with a handy accessory bag. The hand vac can be hooked onto the base of the wand or use a wall mount for storage. When it comes to cleaning the Shark Rocket, they couldn't have made it simpler. The filters easily pop out and can be washed in water, and the brushes are also very accessible. One of my favorite things about this vacuum is that Shark labeled every button and release. They've taken the guesswork out which is helpful.
Overall, the Shark Rocket Complete with Duo Clean Technology is amazing. I can literally clean my whole house with it. Plus, I never have to sweep again unless I want to! I highly recommend this vacuum to everyone but especially people with kids and pets because of the versatility.
