How to Fix Shark Vacuum Brush Not Spinning

We see tons of Shark vacuum cleaners in our shop for repair. One of the most common issues that occurs is that the brush roll will not spin. Here, we break down why that might be, and tell you how to fix it.

  • The Brush Roll is Wrapped with Hair : If the brush on your Shark is wrapped with hair, there is a possibility that the friction caused by this melted your brush, making it unable to spin. First, try spinning the brush with your hand. If you are unable to do this, you likely need a new brush roller as yours has seized. If this doesn’t work, continue to the below steps.
  • Floor Selector Switch is Disengaged : Most Sharks have a switch that can select either hard flooring or carpet. With hard flooring selected, the machine will turn off the brush roll. Make sure that this switch is on carpet mode.
  • Belt Broken : Shark brushes are operated by a belt. If this belt breaks, the brush roll will not spin. You can easily check the belt by either removing the base plate on the Shark or – if you have some experience – by spinning the brush roll by hand and feeling for tension. Note that the belt rarely snaps on Shark vacuums, so this is not likely to be the case. If the belt is the issue, replacing it is fairly simple.
  • The Brush Roll Switch is Broken : This is the most common issue that we see with Sharks at our authorized repair center. Below, we explain the issue and show you how to fix it.

Shark Micro Switch Replacement

If you checked your brush roll, floor setting, and belt but your brush roll is still not spinning, that means you probably need a Shark micro switch replacement. This small switch tells the vacuums brush when to start spinning. Once the switch is damaged, you will find that no matter what you do, the brush will not move. It’s a critical part of the vacuum’s motorized brush system, and when it’s damaged or worn out, the brush roll won’t turn even if the motor is running.

Replacing a Shark micro switch is a relatively easy fix, but it’s essential to ensure that you have the correct replacement part for your vacuum model. Below, you can find the Shark micro switch that is in every Shark Rotator and Navigator vacuum, as well as most other models.

Once you have the replacement part, you can watch how our Shark technician goes about completing this repair by watching our video down below.

Replacing the micro switch is usually a straightforward process that just involves some elbow grease and a little bit of know-how from our video. However, if you’re not comfortable working with electronics or have limited experience with DIY repairs, it’s best to consult a professional or authorized Shark service center, like us!

Shark Navigator and Rotator Vacuum Brush Roll Micro Switch

In the video below, Josh – our certified Shark vacuum technician – will break down how to complete this repair and what supplies and parts you will need.

I’m Josh from VacuumsRus Sewing Too in Arvada and Boulder Colorado. Today we’re going to talk about replacing the brush roll or micro switch on a Shark vacuum. This is a video that is applicable to you if you have a Shark vacuum, and the brush roller is not spinning. A lot of people are going to assume that their belt is broken. That is rarely the case. Usually, the belt is not broken and there’s other technical issues. I’m going to show you how to open it up and how to test the micro switch. This is realistically one of the only feasible repairs for Shark vacuums because the micro switches are about 10 bucks and it’s doable. I’m going to take the upper body off this machine. Depending on your model it may be different. One thing I will forewarn you what we’re working on here is a Shark that has a singular brush roll. Some of the newer Sharks – they frequently call them Shark Duo Clean vacuums – they have two brush rolls, one after the other. Those are an order of magnitude harder to work on then these and personally if somebody brought one into my store, we would probably quote about 150 in labor because of how time consuming it is and the likelihood that something will get broken in the process. So, if you have a single brush roll this video is going to be applicable. If you have a double brush roll and you’re a glutton for punishment, then you can watch the video and kind of figure is out. This particular Shark has Philips head screws on it that is not typical. Most Shark vacuums have what people typically refer to as a star shaped screw. They are what we call security bits. They’re not a regular screw, they’re used because Shark does not want their products to be repaired, they want them to be disposed of so they can sell you more products. That is the business. Model, but you can get those bits. Do a search for security bits. You can usually get a set of the full range of bits that’s anywhere between 5 to 10 different sizes. For like 12 to 15 bucks, you’ll need that. For most Sharks. This one I’m going to start popping screws out. Again, a micro switch failing is the most common reason at this point. Sharp Brush roller stopped spinning. What the micro switch does is detect if the Shark is in a reclined position. So, when you put your Shark in an upright position, your brush stops spinning. When you recline your Shark, the brush will stop spinning again. So now I’ve taken out a bunch of screws, but I’m not done with these two front wheels right here. There’s actually screws hidden underneath. Of those are pressure fit in. You can pop them out with a screwdriver. While I’m at it, I’m going to pull some of this hair off the axel shaft there that piece of felt is there intentionally and I’ll leave that on. The theory behind that piece of felt is it will prevent hair from building up as quickly. We see how effective that was. You know. Basically, vacuum cleaner geniuses these Shark guys are. There are two more screws here. One here. And if you haven’t got the gist, generally, professionals in my industry are not fans of this brand. We’re not in love with disposing of a product because 5 parts broke. We also are not in love with the idea of making it very, very, very difficult to even do basic service on the product so there’s one final hidden screw back here. Left there to frustrate you. And I’m going to pop that puppy out. Pop it out. Maybe going to flip it over. It’s not out of it. This will give. Left in the video, maybe it’ll get cut out. You know? Here we go. OK, so now at this point I can. Take the lid off. And there’s headlights right here, and so there’s a wire connecting to the printed circuit board. That wire just pulls out. There’s no clip on it. And that’s the wire that’s. Going to feed into the headlights so. That’s out one of the side plates also fell off. I’ll just set that aside. What we’re going for here is this micro switch right here, and you can see when the machine goes in an does upright position, it engages the switch, so engage the switch is off and not feed any power to this assembly down here when you recline the machine, the switch opens, and power is fed to the machine and the brush roller will then spin. That’s what the micro switch does, because there’s a lot of debris in here, because these are very inefficient vacuum cleaners. They kick up a lot of dirt that kicks around in here. These switches very frequently go bad. The first thing you need to test it, it’s almost impossible to test your circuit board if your circuit board is bad, you might be able to find a used one on eBay or something like that. It’s also almost impossible to test your motor. You can’t jump the motor because I believe it’s damaging. I think it’s a 12 Volt and this is 120. I don’t like to jump those motors because I’ve had It burn up on me. The switch we can test, so I am going to. Pop out the knuckle here. I get around in there and there’s one screw right here holding my micro switch head now. At this point. I’ve been into. A whole bunch of Sharks and they all use slightly different parts, brush roll motors, and. PCBs tend to. Be the same, but everything around them is different. The one thing I have not seen different though is a micro switch. Every Shark I’ve ever taken apart actually has the same sinking micro switch in it, so hopefully that’s what you have. I’m going to go ahead and link a. Source for these switches. In the description. source that I know is good. There’s one little screw right here. Holding my micro switch in, I’m going to pop that out on the other side. There’s a nut on the other side, so we don’t want to lose that. Screw it. And then not that I just said we don’t. Want to lose there? We go. OK, and now my micro switches off, so I’m going to test this micro switch. We could have done this while it was there, but I’m going. To test the micro switch, there’s a micro switch test ad. Then we know for positive for certain the reason the brush roll is not running is because it’s bad. So, I’m going to use a multi meter. You can also just use a continuity tester. That’s the setting on my multi meter to test for continuity. I always test to make sure I’m set properly. I am so this micro switch is good. So, I’m going to get electrical continuity on this right here and electrical continuity here. And you can hear my multimeter is telling me I do have continuity. What you’re going to want to do is depress the switch test again. And you should have. No continuity when the switch is closed. Open the switch, get continuity. Close the switch. No continuity, open continuity, close, no continuity. That’s a good switch if you get no continuity. Open and close your switch is bad and go ahead and replace it. We’re going to go ahead and replace this switch as a demonstration. First things first, I’m going to cut off this shrink. That’s right here with a razor blade. Right in the middle here, sorry. This is going to. Require this, this job is going to require soldering. Uh, there’s any number of ways to get around soldering. I’m going to Sauder it because that’s the. Best way to do it? I mean, there’s some clips you can use stuff. Like that? I would just invest in a good soldering iron. because you need one in your house anyway. So, I’m going to go ahead and slice these off. As always, this is a. Difficult repair if you don’t feel comfortable with it if you’re not. If you’re not authorized. I don’t know vacuum tech. Don’t do it. Alright, so I’ve got my iron heated up. I’m going to go ahead and solder this again. This is a complex electrical repair. If you’re not comfortable doing it, bring it into an authorized service center. And they could do this for you. If you’re not comfortable with soldering or not familiar with it, there’s lots of soldering videos on YouTube that you can watch to get more comfortable with it. I’m going to walk you through this, so I’ve taken some flux. This is just the regular old flux they sell at Home Depot for soldering pipes together. My rule with soldering is more flux, more flux. Did you use more flux? Go ahead and use more flux. I’m going to. Put some flux on there. I’m going to pause the video to go find safety glasses. OK. There are safety glasses. Alright, I’m back with safety glasses. You want to put safety glasses on for this because we’re going to be. This is hooked soldering. It’s hooked through. We’re going to decide and pull it out, and sometimes you can get little flecks of solder that kind of spit out when you’re when you’re pulling that out. So, you definitely need to have your safety glasses on, as Bill Nye the science Guy. Let’s say glasses on. I’m going to clean. My tip quick. And I’m going to apply some heat right here, and hopefully we can get a good flow. It looks like I’ve got a good bridge and. I’m going to pull that hook off. Keep it hot. Doesn’t matter how hot these stays, it doesn’t matter if we melt the inside of. This switch because it’s already bad. All right, so I got one off rate that Aw, that’s hot. Oh, please leave that in the. Video and I’m going to grab the other one. From the bottom, typically. As best he tries is see. If I get a good bridge, there you can see it flow. It kind of changes color. Twist that backlog applying heat and there we go. We got it D soldered. This is pretty good. This is actually a pretty good solder rate here. It’s clean. I don’t have a lot of goops on there. If I did, I wanted to remove some of the sod, or you can buy Wick which is specifically for this purpose, but if you don’t have which you can strip some wires, some old wire like this. Get a little bit of flux on. Them and if. You apply heat to your wire and then rub this on. Here a lot of the solder will wick into this extra wire, and you see how my wire now a little bit is thinner, so we’re going to be a little bit easier to work with after I’ve removed that solder there. I’m going to do the same thing over here, just a little bit. Off but wrong side doesn’t have flux. And then. And you want to put flux in your Wick. That’ll help this entire process again, my rule is more so you can see on my Wick just change color a little bit because it took on some of the solder from those other wires. And those are good clean wires. Now I’m not going to have any problem getting those. Soldered on and hooked into the new switch. The new micro switch. So, the microswitch you receive. Is most typically going to have three contact points on it. You only need two of those three contact points. I believe you could leave the third contact point on and not have a problem. I typically go ahead and clip them off. With a pair of wire cutters. Just to get it out of. The way to some degree. But you’re going to be using these two outside contact points. OK, so I’m going to go ahead. I’ve got some shrinks wrap right here, some heat shrinks. I’m going to put it on my wires and I’m going to push it down. Well out of the way of my soldering because if my soldering iron gets hot. Here these shrinks will melt. And I’m going to go ahead and. I’m going to install my switch. There are holes in the switch and tented for the wires to go through and then hook. You can bend them. So, my little. Hook right there. OK, so now I’m going to go ahead and solder. I’m going to add a little bit of. Flux on that. Again, the rule my rule of soldering is more flux. Always going to flow easier if you got flux all over the place, you little bit smokier but. I’d rather deal. With a little bit of smoke then have. To redo soldered rides over and over. So, I’m going to go ahead clean. My solder tip again. A little bit of Sauder on there should be pretty good and I’ll hold this out and just hold some heat under there. Let it flow. Pull it off. You don’t want to hold it on. Too long, or else you will. Melt the inside of that, switch them. Heat will go. Right up that blade and melt the inside of your switch, which you do not want. You can tell the Sauder flows because. Everything will change color, it’ll get shiny. And then when it is. Cooled right there. I’ve got a. good flow when it has cooled it will change to a map color. You can see that matte color right there. And that’s that for the solder I’m. I’m going to tip my iron. I am done with it, so I’m going to tip my iron and turn it off. I’m going to crush that down a little bit. I had that I didn’t have it crushed down. As much as I would. Have liked you get that out of the. Building there we go and then me. My shrink will go right over there. And I will use me. All right, so I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to shrink the put the shrink on these. I’m going to do them both at the same time. Come on there. So that’s done. Now we need to get the switch. Back into this housing, the way that. It was before. I can’t remember which direction it went, it looked quick, things like that. One mounting hole right there. Remember, I think that wires went up here. OK, and then we had one small screw which goes to. It’s that loose. Bolt on the opposite side. Nearest interion OK, I’m going to get this clamped out in here and then there’s the one. Screw that holds all that in. Was the smaller screw all the other ones I took out were the same size? I don’t know. How relevant this is because every Shark is different, so when you’re working on yours, you’ll want to pay attention to the size of the screws that you’re taking out because many Sharks use multiple different types of screws. And it’s important to have the right links in. Otherwise, you could potentially push through. OK, so now I’m going to. Get this thing set back in here. To those of you who are considering replacing this hose on your Shark. It’s a pain in the butt. Right, so that all is set safely out of the way now, and if we. Look, this goes up. And we’ll depress that switch when it comes back. It will UN depress that switch. So, remember that we had a one side plate here that fell off when we. Took it apart. I’m going to put. That back in again and then. Also remember that we have this one wire that goes to the light, so we’ll. Need to plug that wire in down here. And then drop the top cover. Back directly onto the top, and that’s good and tight, we’re. Going to hold it while we flip it over. And then. I’m going to put the center screw in first, so everything is. So, nothing shifts on me. OK, now we’ll get all the other screws in. All right, and now I’m going to go ahead and put the wheels back in. These just simply pressure fit. I’ll line them up right because you’ve got that felt on one side. So, you’ve got to. Kind of. Line it you and then you will. Press them in. So, one side isn’t quite in. Usually have them in there. You go. And those spin free. Right and that. Is that that is how you replace a Shark vacuum brush roller micro switch. Thank you for watching!

Why Is My Shark Vacuum Light Flashing?

Unfortunately, Shark vacuums come with very few indicator lights. As a result, those lights flashing could mean several different things.

You can troubleshoot and find the root cause by considering other symptoms accompanying those flashing lights.

Here are 6 of the most likely reasons your Shark vacuum’s lights are flashing.

#1 Vacuum is Charging

Symptoms: Blue-colored lights that flash slowly on cordless Shark vacuums.

Why it’s happening: When you connect a cordless Shark vacuum to its charger, you’ll notice blue-colored lights flashing on and off slowly. That means the unit is currently charging.

These lights do not indicate any problems. Instead, they show that your vacuum’s battery is charging normally.

Once the charging is complete, the light will stop flashing and stay on, albeit slightly dimmer than before.

#2 Burnt Motor

Symptoms: Red-colored indicator light flashing as the vacuum stops working.

Connect with an Appliance Repair Tech

Why it’s happening: When you see a red-colored light flashing on any Shark vacuum, that’s a clear sign that there’s a problem. But, unfortunately, the indicator doesn’t provide any specifics about what that problem might be.

Check the floor attachment that holds the brush roll to begin the troubleshooting process. The motor inside has likely overheated and burned. If you sense any burn smells coming from the attachment, you’ll know that’s true.

You can confirm the root cause by opening the floor attachment and inspecting the motor up-close. When you see burnt parts on the motor, that means you’ll have to replace it with a new one.

Read: Shark Vacuum Won’t Turn On

#3 Overheating

Symptoms: Red-colored indicator light flashing, as the vacuum stops working and the body feels hot around the motor.

Why it’s happening: An overheating Shark vacuum cleaner can also trigger the red indicator light to flash. The appliance will also stop working as a protective measure, thanks to a protective device inside;

There’s a thermostat inside your Shark vacuum that protects it from overheating. When it senses that the vacuum is running too hot, it’ll cut the electrical circuit and force the appliance to turn off.

By doing that, the thermostat prevents the vacuum from damaging itself and protects you from more expensive repairs.

So, when you see the red indicator light flashing, and your vacuum won’t run, it’s likely that there’s a blockage inside that causes it to run too hot. A blockage prevents airflow from passing through the vacuum and reducing the heat inside, particularly around the motor.

To solve this problem, you must first unplug your vacuum cleaner. Then, inspect all of its components for blockages that you must remove.

Don’t forget to empty the canister, as too much dust in there will also restrict airflow.

#4 Jammed Brushroll

Symptoms: Red-coloured indicator light flashing while the brush roll fails to turn.

Why it’s happening: Another likely trigger behind the red flashing indicator on your Shark vacuum is that its brush roll is jammed.

When that happens, the red light will flash to get your attention so you can free the brush roll and allow it to resume normal operations.

The brush roll is cylindrical in shape with bristles along its sides. Its purpose is to help lift dirt off the ground, making it much easier for the vacuum to suck it in.

Unfortunately, hair strands and long pieces of dirt can wrap around the brush roll over an extended period. At some point, the same will wrap around the brush roll’s bearings and cause it to jam.

A brush roll that can’t move freely will place added stress on its motor, which is why you must clear it as soon as you notice a problem.

You can start by disconnecting the floor attachment and turning it over. Then, use a pair of scissors to cut through the buildup of hair and dirt around the brush roll. Do this very carefully, so you don’t accidentally cut the bristles from the brush bar.

You can remove the rest with your fingers after you’ve cut most of the buildup. That will free the brush roll, allowing it to turn normal again.

As you push the vacuum around, you might find that the headlights flash intermittently. That problem tends to happen more often when you’re turning the vacuum on its swivel, causing the lights to flash on and off repeatedly.

shark, cordless, charging, vacuum, light

That happens because there is a wiring problem inside your vacuum. As we saw above, the headlights receive power through the floor attachment. However, that power comes through wires that run through the swivel and up to the vacuum’s main body.

When the wires are problematic, turning the swivel will disrupt the flow of power to the headlights, causing them to flash on and off repeatedly.

How Do I Clear A Blockage In My Shark Vacuum?

Several of the causes listed above happen because of blockages in or around its parts. For example, when dust and debris restrict airflow, motors overheat, and parts like the brush roll fail to move.

One way to prevent these problems from happening is by clearing blockages from your Shark vacuum regularly.

You can do that by:

  • Removing all vacuum attachments for closer inspection.
  • Emptying the dust canister regularly.
  • Keeping the brush roll free by picking out long pieces of dirt or hair before they jam the roll severely.
  • Washing all filters regularly and letting them air dry for at least 24 hours.

When you perform these maintenance tasks regularly, you’ll prevent most of the causes that trigger the red indicator light to flash.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Here are some other frequently asked questions about flashing lights on your Shark vacuum:

The blue light on your Shark vacuum flashes to let you know that the charging process is ongoing. However, it’s not a sign of a problem, so you have nothing to worry about. The light will dim slightly but stay on instead of flashing when the battery is full.

Why Is My Dyson Vacuum Not Charging And Flashing Red Light?

If your Dyson vacuum is not charging and flashing red light it means your battery has been degraded. You need to replace the battery to fix the problem.

A blue flashing light on Dyscon vacuum cleaner indicates the low power and device needs to be recharged. Please insert the charger and leave it for at least 3.5 hours to fully charge the battery.

Why Is My Dyson Vacuum Not Charging And No Light?

If no light appears on your Dyson vaccum when you connect the charger, it indicates a charger is not connected properly or it has no power. So, please ensure that wall outlet switch is turned on and charging cord has no damage. You may need to replace the charger to fix the problem.

The average life of Dyson vacuum battery is 1.5 to 2 years. However, it degrades faster if you charge it in high temperature or leave it plugged in. If you notice your vacuum runtime is declined, it’s time to replace the battery.

How Long Does Dyson Vacuum Battery Last?

Dyson cordless vacuum cleaners gives approximately 40 minutes to 1 hour runtime when fully charged. It may drain faster when your machine is running in Max/Boost mode. An average life of Dyson batteries are 1.5 to 2 years.

Yes. If you leave your Dyson plugged in all the time, the lithium-ion battery will age faster and lose it’s power holding capacity. All Dyson vacuum takes approximately 3 to 4 hours to fully charge. Please disconnect the charger when your device is fully charged.

Shark Wandvac Cordless Handheld Vacuum

We purchased the Shark WANDVAC Cordless Handheld Vacuum so our reviewer could put it to the test. Keep reading for our full product review.

The Shark WANDVAC Cordless Handheld Vacuum promises unbelievable suction for everyday messes and small spaces. And as someone who’s constantly battling dust, fur, and litter box debris from five animals, I was intrigued. Sometimes I have a quick mess that needs cleaning, and I don’t want to pull out my full-size vacuum or battle with a broom and dustpan. But I’ve used plenty of dustbusters and handheld vacuums in the past, and they just never really seem to live up to their claims. Could the Shark WANDVAC be the one that does everything it promises? I had to know.

As soon as the WANDVAC arrived, I excitedly opened it and started to put it together. It comes mostly assembled. The only thing I had to do was connect the three base pieces, and (I thought) I was ready to go. But then I got to the part of the instructions that say you have to fully charge the battery before using it for the first time, or the battery won’t be properly conditioned.

I plugged the vacuum in and waited for the fading blue light to turn solid. It finally did—2.5 hours later—which I thought seemed excessively long given that the run time of the vacuum is only 9.5 minutes.

The design of the stand is equally impressive. It has a slim footprint and housing for the attachments, so everything is neatly lined up in a row.

When it was finally ready, I took the Shark WANDVAC off the charger and turned it on. I was actually startled by how loud it was (and so were all of the sleeping pets around me). But the suction was really powerful, so it was a welcome trade-off. I used the WANDVAC on my couch, and it easily picked up pet fur, dust, debris, and crumbs.

Then I took it to the other room and cleaned up the stray litter that had somehow piled up on the hardwood floor around the litter box. The mess was gone in seconds, but the dustbin started to fill up really quickly. After just a few minutes of use, I had to empty it, which is partly a reflection of the amount of pet fur in my home. But it’s also due to the fact that the dustbin is really small. It probably holds about half a cup of compacted dirt, if that.

I was actually startled by how loud it was (and so were all of the sleeping pets around me). But the suction was really powerful, so it was a welcome trade-off.

Fortunately, it’s really easy to empty. There’s a push-button right underneath the power button, and when you slide it forward with your thumb, the dustbin pops right open. I opened it over the trash, and the dust and dirt slid right out. Some fur did get stuck on the screen, but I wiped it out and got back to work.

After using the vacuum on its own for a little while, I attached the Duster Crevice Tool. It not only extends the length of the vacuum, but it also has bristles on the end that pull fur and hair off upholstery and carpets before the powerful suction takes them away. This tool is a dream for cleaning up around the edges of my bedroom that my regular vacuum constantly misses and for cleaning the floors in my car. In fact, because it fits into small spaces and is really powerful, the vacuum really shines for use as a car cleaning tool. The WANDVAC also has a Multi-Surface Pet Tool, but I didn’t notice a huge difference in performance when using the vacuum with and without it attached.

The mess was gone in seconds, but the dustbin started to fill up really quickly.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the Shark WANDVAC run on a single charge?

The Shark WANDVAC runs for 9.5 minutes on a full charge and takes 2.5 hours to fully charge from empty. To ensure that the vacuum is always charged, the manufacturer recommends returning it to the charging base after each use.

I was shocked to hear that the run time was so low, but it only died on me once—when I cleaned my car after vacuuming off my couch. If you make it a point to return the vacuum to the charger after each use and understand that this is meant to be more of a picker-upper rather than a full vacuum job, you won’t have any problems.

shark, cordless, charging, vacuum, light

Is the filter washable?

This handheld vacuum has a washable filter, so there’s no need to purchase replacement filters. Shark recommends washing the filter once a month by rinsing it with cold water only (no soaps or cleaners) until the water runs clear and then letting it dry for at least 24 hours before returning it to the unit.

If you notice that the Shark WANDVAC stops picking up dirt or its suction seems to have lessened, you may need to clean the filter sooner.

shark, cordless, charging, vacuum, light

What does the Shark WANDVAC come with?

The Shark WANDVAC comes with two attachment tools: a Duster Crevice Tool and a Multi-Surface Pet Tool. It also comes with a charging base and a stand that neatly holds everything upright.

Shark WANDVAC Cordless Handheld Vacuum vs. BLACKDECKER dustbuster QuickClean Hand Vacuum

If the Shark WANDVAC is just a little too small, the BLACKDECKER dustbuster QuickClean Hand Vacuum is another cordless option. The BLACKDECKER vacuum retails for around 30 in comparison to Shark’s 120. It’s bulkier and heavier than the Shark WANDVAC and not as portable, but it has an extra-long crevice tool and a motorized pet brush that you can use to clean out-of-reach places and stray fur. The dustbin is also larger, so you can clean up bigger messes without emptying it as frequently. If you need to clean larger areas and don’t mind the larger footprint, the BLACKDECKER is a good option, but if you’re after portability and sleek storage, the Shark is the better choice.

It may seem dramatic, but the Shark WANDVAC Cordless Handheld Vacuum is a lifesaver for quick clean-ups and battling pet messes, like stray fur and litter box debris. The battery doesn’t last very long, but that’s a problem that you can rectify by returning it to its base after each use.
