What is Shark® Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology®?
If your vacuum is an unsealed HEPA vacuum, dirt and allergens 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 into the HEPA filter, the vacuum captures and holds over 99.9%* of dust and allergens.

Shark® vacuums have zero maintenance costs. What does that mean?
All Shark® vacuums come with high-quality, washable filters that can be used and re-used, plus a lifetime belt that never needs replacing. These are designed to last the life of the product and are backed by Shark's leading 7-year warranty offer. This means there are no hidden maintenance costs.
  • Lifetime filters: The Shark® Rotator® Powered Lift-Away Speed vacuum's 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.
  • Lifetime belt: The Shark® Rotator® Powered Lift-Away Speed vacuum's intelligent electronic system will shut off the power nozzle motor to avoid belt wear if the brushroll is blocked by a large object, such as a sock or carpet edge. Simply turn off the power, unplug the vacuum, remove the obstruction, and return to vacuuming — with no belt maintenance or replacement costs to worry about.

How do I begin cleaning floors?
The Shark® Powered Lift-Away® vacuum has two powerful settings for cleaning.
  • For bare floors and accessories: Press the power button on the vacuum pod to turn on suction, then slide the surface selector to "hard floor." Tilt the handle back while you gently step on the floor nozzle. Note that the brushroll will not spin in this mode.
  • For carpets: Press the power button on the vacuum to turn on the suction. Slide the surface selector to "carpet" for low-pile and normal carpet types. While the power is on, tilt the handle back while you gently step on the floor nozzle. The brushroll will begin spinning. The brushroll indicator on the floor nozzle will illuminate when the button is engaged. If the vacuum is difficult to push or pull due to high suction, use the suction control slider on the front of the vacuum’s handle to adjust the amount of suction.


Note: For deep cleaning per ASTM F608 (embedded dirt in carpets), please set to "carpet" and suction control to "max."

How do I detach the canister for portable cleaning?
The Lift-Away® cleaning mode allows you to vacuum anywhere. To convert from upright to Lift-Away® mode, quickly release the cord by turning the top cord wrap. Then press the Lift-Away® and wand release buttons on the top of the canister. This will unlock the handle with wand and detach the pod from the floor nozzle. These buttons can be pushed together for quick release or separately if you want to release just the canister or just the cleaning wand. Next, pull the canister up by the handle while gently stepping on the floor nozzle. Grab the top handle with your other hand. You are now ready to clean stairs, your car, and other hard-to-reach areas. You can attach the cord to the cord hook just below the handle to keep it of your way while vacuuming.
