Just imagine that you have shifted to an old country villa that is already disturbing you with its filthy mess. Obviously, your priority will now be to restore this home to its tiptop state. Despite well cleaning, you have found that the floors continue to be a bit problematic. They are made up of hardwood, tiles, and linoleum but never appear quite clean to you.

Now, there are two options for you. You either call a professional service provider in your new neighborhood or use your own reliable carpet cleaner. Of the two, you would surely be better with having your own cleaner, as its just first use is equal to what a professional service will render at a hefty price. Beneficially, you will be able to use the cleaner at any point of time, whenever you see any dust, grime, or allergens on carpets or hard floors, which a professional service in a year can prove to be costly.

This is exactly where this Shark Sonic Duo carpet cleaner works effectively for you! With its latest revolutionary technology, it takes away both intangible and tangible mess while you swivel it on all any kind of floor or carpet across your home. It is powerful and versatile enough to revive and restore your rugs, tile, and hardwood surfaces. So read our reviews regarding Shark Sonic Duo

Functional Performance

The Shark Sonic Duo Floor & Carpet Cleaner comes with sonic technology for cleaning your rugs through scrubbing. All you have to do is add the soft reusable pads and mete out the cleaning solution, while you move. This dedicated solution encapsulates and dries out the dirt after which you can just vacuum up any left behind residue. While the hard floor solution discards dirt and grime, the hard floor buffer solution revives the sealed floors such that they appear shiny no matter how dull they might have remained over time. In case of stubborn spots, you only need to use the pre-treater for their removal.

Sonic Duo

The working of this cleaner, is perhaps, different from other standard home carpet cleaners. It implements more of a dry cleaning and low-moisture cleaning process for scrubbing at super speed, instead of the common hot water extraction process seen in the standard cleaners. This attracts surface dirt toward the pad, while the brand’s cleaning solution penetrates deeply into the carpet to attract the filth deep inside the carpet. Once the solution dries, the filth dehydrates and falls over after which vacuuming can throw it away by suctioning out the profound dirt.

  • On Carpets: Shark Sonic Duo hard floor cleaner promises to remove years-old stains, dust, allergens, mold, and trapped dust out of the carpets. When used with a vacuum cleaner, you are ensured of removal of four times as much dirt as compared to only vacuuming alone. Just run it in your hall and an array of colors and vibrancy will reveal themselves after being hidden beneath a dirty coat for years. The cleaner can even remove the long-term spots trodden in fibers in your lawn carpet. The sonic scrubbing works almost like an electric toothbrush by breaking up the surface dirt. When you move ahead, the solution goes deep inside the fibers, to trap and unlock the filth as it dries. Now, if you apply a carpet cleaner like Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3, the rejuvenated clean surface is bound to surprise you.
  • On Hard Surfaces: The aforementioned results are also applicable to the linoleum kitchen flooring that was spoiled with different grime and stains. Let them be permanent marks; this cleaner can remove them quite easily. You can even unhesitatingly use it on the wooden floors that are always susceptible to too much cleaning solution or such cleaners. However, this cleaner is quite friendly with such floors on which it can dry a small patch for stunning outcome. All you need to do is simply affix the green pads exclusive for hardwood surfaces and make one pass. The glowing result will be without streaks, damage, or residue, as this cleaner utilizes less moisture and needs just a quick spray evaporating swiftly after passing over it. In short, you can use this cleaner on almost any hard surface without any hesitation.

Let’s Review Shark Sonic Duo Features

The aforementioned surprising performance is certainly because of the advanced features of this washer. Let us check them out!

  • Deep Cleaning: This is applicable to hard floors, rugs, and carpets. You can use it even on hardwood flooring, stone, vinyl, and tiles. However, a warning has been given for use on highly worn, oily, and waxed floors.
  • Rapid Scrubbing Action: Odors and stains on carpets are mainly due to stuck-on dirt issue instead of surface dirt. Such dirt becomes easily removable through the technology of this duo cleaner that concentrates on discarding stuck-on dirt efficiently. This is possible by a blend of a quick scrubbing action and an exclusive cleaning solution. The scrubbing action takes place at a speed of 1,000 times per minute.
  • Reusable Cleaning Pads: This is perhaps another fascinating feature of this unit. While many floor and carpet cleaners of this type come with use and throw pads, this one has pads that are not only reusable but also washable. This means you now need not waste time or money in replacing the pads at regular intervals. There are four big pads, each of which is coded with color as per the surface on which it is best to use.
  • Mechanism of Color Code: The pads are color coded as per the targeted use. For example, the pads for hard floor feature a green trim; whereas, the pads for carpets tend to hold a purple trim. Similarly, the non-toxic cleaning solutions are also color coded, indicating their intended use. Moreover, the other parts of this duo cleaner are also color coded, which simplifies configuring the unit according to the task.
  • Slim Design: The cleaner measures only 9 lbs, which is not even half the weight of the standard upright carpet cleaners like BISSELL Big Green. Similarly, this unit is lighter than the normal lightweight cleaners are, as well. This is because there is no need to move around with a big, filled water tank. Moreover, the dimensions are also such that it is easy to store in place and convenient to use.
  • Low Moisture Cleaner: This feature is such that there is no need wait for the carpet to dry once it is cleaned. The blend of scrubbing action and exclusive low-moisture solution discards the stuck-down dirt quite efficiently and dries out the surface effectively.
  • Airglide Maneuverability: The cleaner glides very smoothly with almost no special efforts at all, due to micro fiber pads, may it be a carpet or hardwood floor. Without the need of high level of robust suction, the solution in these pads when combined with sufficient suction discards the loosened dirt. The built-in utility of swivel steering also adds to the overall maneuverability.
  • Usual Maintenance: When you use the carpet cleaner regularly on hard surfaces as well as on carpets, it drastically alleviates deposits of grime, dust, and dirt while discarding allergens and odors. The cleaner is also effective in removing pet stains.
  • Headlights: This is perhaps the only point of distinction between this unit and ZZ550 model. The headlights light up distant and poorly lit regions.
  • 22 Feet Cord: This cord is truly long to facilitate more than sufficient cleaning without stopping and re-starting the cleaner.
  • Warranty: This is two years, which is obviously more than the other best carpet shampooers of this or ordinary type.
  • Other Features: You also get storage/drying tray, WoolSafe certification for use, CRI-certified activating pre-treater, PTPA certified, and noteworthy 9W cleaning path to cover more cleaning area per pass. How we alredy said in our Shark Sonic Duo reviews, the cleaner also comes with two reusable bottles and two cleaning solutions.
