Unleash Your Home’s Cleaning Potential with the Shark Apex Lift-Away

Is your vacuum on its last legs leaving your carpets lackluster and floors looking dull? It may be time for an upgrade to revitalize your home’s floors. And the Shark Apex Lift-Away has arrived as your cleaning savior. This innovative upright vacuum packs a one-two cleaning punch to give carpets and floors a deep down refresh. Keep reading to discover why the Apex Lift-Away could be the vacuum you’ve been waiting for.

Conquer Messes with DuoClean

The Apex Lift-Away utilizes Shark’s signature DuoClean technology that delivers unmatched cleaning performance. It combines two motorized brushes in one cleaning head to target both carpets and hard floors. First, the soft front roller gently combs across floors pulling in larger pieces of debris and fine particles. It preps surfaces for a deeper clean. Then the bristled brushroll provides a deep scrubbing of carpets, powerfully lifting up stubborn dirt from deep in the fibers. On hard floors, the brushroll directly engages for a scrubbed shiny finish. This innovative dual brushroll approach means floors and carpets get a customized clean in a single pass. Other vacuums rely on just one main brushroll trying to tackle both soft and hard floors. But DuoClean was designed specifically to optimize cleaning on any surface. Powerful suction works in tandem with the DuoClean head to pull loosened dirt and debris into the vacuum. With DuoClean getting down into carpets and scrubbing floors paired with unrelenting suction, no dust bunny stands a chance.

Lift-Away Pod Transforms Cleaning

One of the Apex’s most exciting features is the Lift-Away system. With the push of a button, you can lift the pod and detach it from the upright vacuum body. This allows you to transform it into a portable canister vac with the full power of the motorized floor nozzle. Deep clean furniture, stairs, curtains and anywhere else without strain. The lift-away pod delivers a 16 foot range while powered so you can access under beds and sofas with ease. No need to unplug and replug as you move about the room. You can also detach the powered brushroll head itself for cleaning upholstery or mattresses. Or use one of the handy detail cleaning tools for tight spaces and crevices. Lift-away cleaning means no area is out of reach. You can match the cleaning mode to any mess or surface for sparkling results throughout the home.

Self-Cleaning Brushroll Tames Pet Hair

Pet hair wrap is one of the most annoying vacuum problems, clogging the brushroll and obstructing suction. But the self-cleaning brushroll on the Apex puts this headache to rest. It actively removes and sends hair to the dust cup while vacuuming so it doesn’t get trapped. No more pausing to cut hair off the brushes! The self-cleaning technology channels airflow through the bristles to lift and push out tangled hair into the dust bin. Specialized air channels repel and remove hair automatically. You’ll never have to pause your vacuuming to remove wrapped up pet hair again. No interruptions, just smooth and easy pickup of pet hair on carpets, rugs and stairs.

Breath Easier with Advanced Filtration

For those with allergies and respiratory issues aggravated by dust, the Apex has your back. It comes equipped with complete seal filtration and a true HEPA filter system. The complete seal traps 99% of dust and allergens inside so they don’t escape back into the air. Foam filters, a felt gasket and rubber gasket all work together to contain dust. Then the HEPA filter captures even the most microscopic particles including pollen, pet dander, mold spores and dust mites. Now you can vacuum away pesky allergens and breathe a little easier. The Apex traps irritants securely inside while maintaining powerful suction.

Clever Design from Top to Bottom

From LED headlights to noise reduction, the Apex contains clever design details that optimize the experience:
  • LED Lights – Bright LED beams on the floor nozzle and wand reveal hidden debris in dark corners and under furniture. Eliminate the need to stop and grab a flashlight mid-clean.
  • Easy Controls – Convenient fingertip controls on the wand let you switch between floor types and turn the brushroll on and off as needed.
  • Quiet Operation – Noise reduction technology tunes the motor for a less disruptive hum and muted operation. Clean anytime without disturbing others.
  • Maneuverable Body – A swivel head and smooth wheels provide effortless steering around and under furniture. Tackle cleaning gracefully.
  • Long Power Cord – The extra-long 30-foot power cord offers exceptional cleaning range so you can move between rooms with ease.
These thoughtful design elements allow you to clean thoroughly and effectively while eliminating frustrations.

Tackle Every Nook and Cranny

To provide whole home cleaning capabilities, the Apex comes with a set of specialized detail tools:
  • Upholstery Tool – Clean fabric furniture, curtains, pet beds, and mattresses of dust, pet hair and debris with the motorized brush.
  • Crevice Tool – Reach into tight spaces and vacuum up dust, dirt and pet hair with the narrow crevice tool. Perfect for baseboards, between couch cushions and around furniture legs.
  • Pet Power Brush – Remove embedded and tangled pet hair from stairs, furniture and carpeted areas with no hair wrap. The self-cleaning bristles conquer messy pet spots.
These handy attachments expand your cleaning repertoire for a whole home clean.
