Cleaning floors is not fun. I mean sometimes it is if you make a game out of it. But very rarely will you do that. When you want to go clean your hardwood floors, kitchen floors, or bathroom floors you know its time to bare down because its going to be a long day. Being the one that usually cleans the floors in my house, I was looking for a way to make it easier and cut down on time. I think I may have found just the thing!!! It is the Shark Sonic Duo!!!! It has done so many things to cut down on the hardships of floor cleaning. Let me tell you how….
When I first got the Shark Sonic Duo I was a tad bit skeptical. I mean how can one floor cleaner be good at cleaning hardwood, kitchen, bathroom, and carpets all in one? I decide to hold my reservations about it until after I tried it. I am glad I did. When I opened the box and lifted it out, the first thing I noticed was how light it was. Being light is a good thing as I know plenty of cleaning devices that aren’t. The next thing I took a look at was the bottom. It looked super sturdy which was a good thing. I also noticed the velcro strips which is where the pads will attach. More on the pads in a minute. Now i wanted to assemble the Shark Sonic Duo. Let me tell you assembly couldn’t be easier. You snap the handle in to the top. That’s it!! Simple assembly equals big plus for me. So after that I wanted to take the rest of it out of the box. I pulled out two plastic bottles. One is for hardwood-kitchen floors. The other is for your carpets. The thing I loved about this was the fact that the two will never mix, hence I will not have to clean out the bottle if I want to switch from hardwood to carpet. This makes things so much easier. The bottles snap on to the front of the Shark when you are ready to start cleaning. Next I pulled out those pads I mentioned earlier. There were two for hardwood, one for deep carpet cleaning, and one for standard carpet cleaning. Also the bottles and the pads are color coded as well. Green is for hardwood, purple for carpets. Could this get any easier? The last thing I pulled out was the solutions. These included hardwood cleaner, carpet cleaner, and a bottle of carpet pretreat spray. This spray is used for those really tough stains. Just make sure you leave it on for the time prescribed. One thing I have to say about the carpet pretreat spray is that it will not get out every stain. This is expected though as stains from 6 months ago are set in and may require a professional clean. Other than that, I was very impressed with the contents of the box.
When I was ready to clean my floors, I had to prep the bottles. This is a breeze as well. The bottle tells you where to fill the water to and after that where to fill the cleaner to as well. So after adding the water and the cleaner to the bottle, I screwed on the lid and snapped it into the front of the Shark Sonic Duo. All I had to do was plug it in, and I was ready to go. On the handle there is a red switch that allows you to select which mode you will use. I- is for the low setting which is for hardwood, II- is the high setting for carpets. There is also a button on the handle to push to spray the cleaner. It comes out of the front of the machine for easy cleaning.
Now you are probably wondering what I thought about the Sonic Shark Duo. Let me tell you I was impressed. It cleaned my hardwood as advertised. My hardwood as never looked so clean. I highly recommend the Shark Sonic Duo for this. The carpet part did ok. It didn’t clean the carpets like I was expecting, but it didn’t do a bad job either. It is somewhere in between for carpets. Overall I would recommend this product especially for hardwood. With that being said this is called the Sonic Shark Duo because it is supposed to clean hardwood and carpet. It does not do its purpose in that regard. If you are looking for a good hardwood cleaner, this is for you. If your house is mainly carpets not so much.
With all that said I give the Shark Sonic Duo a 6/10.
