Once upon a time, houses across the nation were almost exclusively carpeted. Bare floors were confined to kitchens, bathroom, and garages. These days, so many homes have bare floors throughout their homes, as well as carpets. Cleaning becomes so frustrating with the constant need to switch between broom and vacuum depending on the flooring of the room you’re in at the time. The Shark 2-in-1 Cordless Stick Vac and Handheld Vacuum Cleaner solves that worry with one simple switch and a whole lot of power.
When I moved in to my new apartment, I wondered how to deal with having carpet in the two bedrooms and bare floors everywhere else. With no vacuum and only a small broom, I immediately headed online to see what my options were. What I found was the Shark 2-in-1 Cordless Stick Vac and Handheld Vacuum Cleaner. This vacuum can handle either bare floors or carpets with the flip of a switch. The handle and vacuum head quickly remove to allow a new attachment which turns the vacuum into a handheld vac perfect for furniture, tight corners, or stairs.
I purchased the Shark 2-in-1 Cordless Stick Vac and Handheld Vacuum Cleaner and have been so, so pleased with the results. This vacuum charges quickly, doesn’t drag cords throughout my house giving me tons of mobility, and it is a lot of fun to zip around my home with. It is so easy to whip off the handle and vacuum head to turn the full-size vacuum into a handheld version, and back again. The purple color is playful, which I appreciate. My one complaint about the vacuum is that it can’t handle textured carpet very well. I have an area rug that has high and low parts, but the Shark 2-in-1 Cordless Stick Vac and Handheld Vacuum Cleaner only picks up particles from the high parts. To get the entire rug clean, I have to switch to the handheld version, which is a bit of a hassle.
The Shark 2-in-1 Cordless Stick Vac and Handheld Vacuum Cleaner runs around $60 at any Target store, which is such a bargain given all that you get with this product. My floors have been remarkably clean ever since I purchased this, because any size mess gets picked right up with just a few passes. No muss, no fuss, just clean!
