- Shark vacuum cleaners are growing in popularity, especially at the nation’s top online retailer Amazon.
- The company indeed makes terrific vacuums just like all the other product categories Shark has entered in recent years, though they’re not quite as popular as options from market leaders like Dyson.
- There’s one model available that you might not have heard of before, and you should definitely check it out — it’s called the Shark VACMOP Pro and it’s finally in stock at Amazon.
It used to be the case a few short years ago that households needed two different vacuums. One was a heavy-duty vacuum cleaner that had to be plugged into the wall, and that one was used for big messes as well as routine weekly cleaning. Then there was a second cordless vacuum for light-duty jobs that would only take a minute or two to clean up. Over time, however, cordless vacuums grew more and more powerful, driven by Dyson and the huge strides it made in the space. Now, many households don’t even need a plug-in vacuum cleaner because cordless stick vacuums have great battery life and powerful motors.
The days of the plug-in vacuum are basically behind us, but there’s still a killer two-device combo that you should consider in your home. In addition to the cordless vacuum you use for regular cleaning, there’s a new type of hybrid device that combines a light-duty vacuum with a wet/dry mop to take care of the jobs that a cordless vacuum like a Dyson simply can’t do.
We’ve tried combo devices like these in the past and have been quite unimpressed, but then we came across the Shark VACMOP Pro Cordless Vacuum and Mop. There are a few features in particular that we like about this model.
First, the vacuum actually has decent suction so it’s good with quick cleanups or clearing light dirt before you mop a hard floor. It also has lights on the head that illuminate as you clean, and there’s a terrific touchless disposal mechanism so you don’t have to touch the filthy cleaning pad. It’s lightweight and manageable, and it also has a nifty magnetic charger attachment so it’s easy to keep it powered up. It really is the perfect complement to your main vacuum, and it’s finally back in stock at Amazon if you hurry.Shark VM252 VACMOP Pro Cordless Hard Floor Vacuum Mop with Disposable Pad, Charcoal Gray List Price:$99.99 Price:$79.99 You Save:$20.00 (20%) Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission
