If you’re still pushing a vacuum cleaner around the house, it might be time to finally delegate your floors to a robot. A robotic vacuum is something to get charged up about, especially one that’s so smart it can map your entire house, empty its own dustbin, and self-clean its brush roll.
The Shark IQ robotic self-emptying vacuum does all that and then some. We’d call it less of a household appliance and more of a housekeeper, actually. Just for today, you can score this amazing vac and its services for a major discount—$300 off at Amazon.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
On sale for $300, the Shark IQ cleans the way you want it to clean, whenever you want it to clean. Program it to tackle your entire home in one fell swoop every Saturday morning, or order it to clean just the living room tonight and the bedrooms tomorrow. You set its schedule using either the Shark IQ app, Amazon Alexa, or Google Home, then sit back and let the smart disc do its thing.
The device really knows its way around. It uses an internal GPS, or an intelligent home mapping system, to travel through your entire domain. It meticulously cleans each room, one row at a time, directing itself through doorways, under furniture, and over any type of flooring. Debris, pet hair, crumbs — nothing can survive the Shark’s serious suction.
The Shark IQ is even sophisticated enough to dig crud out of the corners of your kitchen floor thanks to dual edge and corner brushes, and its self-cleaning brush roll is designed to repel tangled-up hair. The Shark IQ promises to unearth plenty of dirt and dust from deep inside your carpet’s fibers — it traps allergens inside a high-efficiency filter, too.
"My floors have never been this clean," says a reviewer. “The Shark IQ is amazing. We can run it several times a day if needed with no effort on our part and our floors are dog hair free."
This vacuum is also pretty self-sufficient. "Very happy that my laminate floors are now dust-free and pet hair gone. We have three small dogs and two cats that shed a lot and I wasn't able to keep up with it before,” says a five-star reviewer. "Our monthly cleaning person has noticed that she only gets less than half in the vacuum that she did before the robot."
The fact that you can control it with your voice or via a smartphone app from anywhere, near or far, is just icing on the cake. If you have to pause cleaning midway and resume, say, tomorrow, the Shark IQ even remembers where it left off. Now, that’s smart!
