Technologies- Q&A

 

Q: What is the technology behind Never Loses Suction?

A: Never Loses Suction is an advanced cyclonic technology that separates fine dirt from the air, preventing dirt from clogging the filters and keeping suction power strong over time.

Q: What does it mean when they say “Zero Maintenance Costs”

A: All Shark® vacuums come with high-quality, washable filters that can be used and reused. The Shark® Rotator® filter system will last the life of your vacuum, with minimal maintenance and no replacement costs required. Your filters may discolor over time but will not lose their effectiveness. Shark® vacuums also come with a belt designed to last the life of the product, backed by a limited 5-year warranty. The Shark® Rotator® intelligent electronic system will shut off the power nozzle motor to avoid belt wear if you block the brushroll with a large object such as a sock or carpet edge. Simply turn off the power, unplug the vacuum, remove the obstruction, and then return to vacuuming, with no belt maintenance or replacement costs to worry about.

Q: What do they mean by “Complete Seal Technology”.

A: If your vacuum is an unsealed HEPA vacuum, dirt and allergens that you vacuum up can escape back into the air that you breathe before they even reach the HEPA filter. With Shark® Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology® incorporated with the HEPA filter, the vacuum captures and holds over 99.9%** of dust and allergens inside the vacuum, so that it is not released back into the air you breathe.

Q: What is meant by “Dual Motor” technology?

A: Shark has incorporated a more common design of dual motor in several of their uprights. In these cleaners, the suction is provided via a large motor, while the brushroll is powered by a separate, smaller motor, which does not create any suction.

Q: What are lifetime belt and filters?

A: These filters and belt are designed to last the life of the product and are covered under normal use for the 5-year warranty period. An intelligent electronic system will shut off the power nozzle motor to avoid belt wear if you block the brush roll with a large object such as a sock or carpet edge. Simply turn off the power, remove the obstruction, and then return to vacuuming with no belt maintenance or replacement costs to worry about! The filter system will last the life of your vacuum, with minimal maintenance and no replacement costs required. Your filters will discolor over time but will not lose their effectiveness.

Q: What is Advanced Swivel Steering?

A: Advanced Swivel Steering allows the user to maneuver in between, around and under furniture easier than ever before. Advanced steering and a low profile allow for a deeper clean by reaching those hard to reach places.
