How we tested
Stick vacuums are a great tool in every household because they are great at cleaning hardwood and carpets. They can clean so much from tiny crumbs hiding in the kitchen floors to pesky hairs in the corners of the bathroom. Their versatility makes them high in demand, so we decided to test out a few to see which stick vacuum works the best.
When testing the different stick vacuums, we played close attention to what percentage of the debris was gone. We also took note of how closely the vacuum cleaned along small edges. The last thing we tested was how easily the vacuum was able to maneuver on the different types of flooring. This is an extremely important attribute for customers because it helps them get the job done faster.

How to Choose a Vacuum Cleaner?
Each Shark cordless vacuum cleaner available out there has its fair share of pros and cons. Fortunately, you can minimize your chances of getting a faulty machine by following a few handy tips.
The first factor to consider is voltage – basically speaking, if you are planning to use the machine for tough cleaning jobs you want to go for the highest voltage you can find. On the other hand, if you are targeting light tasks then a typical 12-volt machine will be good enough.
Another important factor worth considering is the size of the brush. Bigger projects are best handled with 13-inch brushes and above while moderate tasks are best handled with 10-inch brushes. The profile of the Shark cordless vacuum is also a factor worth pondering upon.
Typically, a machine with a low profile is a perfect choice if you have to clean under the bed and furniture. The rule of the thumb is – always consider your needs before settling for any machine.
