Shark DuoClean Powered Lift-Away Anti Hair Wrap AZ950UK Upright Bagless Vacuum Cleaner. Tired of getting hair tangled up on the brush roll? There’s no need to reach for the scissors anymore – the AZ950UK’s Anti Hair Wrap technology separates and removes all long, short and pet hair with ease. With its DuoClean technology and it’s larger floorhead, you can move from room to room, cleaning carpets and hard floors without stopping to switch heads.
The soft brush roll makes direct contact with hard floor surfaces, pulling in dirt and fine dust for a perfect clean in one go, while the bristle bar cleans deep into carpets to pull up embedded pet hair and other debris. The Powered Lift-Away mode lets you detach the canister from the wand and you’re ready to conquer stairs and soft furnishing with zero hassle. With power continually delivered to the vacuum head, the brush roll continues rotating to keep drawing in the dirt, rather than only relying on suction power, so you’re guaranteed a better clean. The swivel steering makes it easy to manoeuvre around furniture and other items, so you won’t have to keep stopping to move things out of your way.
Plus, with LED headlights, you can see clearly in those dark corners and under furniture. The AZ950UK is ideal if there’s an allergy sufferer in your household – Shark’s Anti-Allergen Complete Seal captures and traps 99.9% of dust and allergens inside the vacuum, not releasing them back into the air you breathe.
SHARK DuoClean Anti Hair Wrap AZ950UK Upright Bagless Vacuum Cleaner
The new AZ950UK builds upon SHARKS previous releases, by improving the performance and adding its Anti Hair Wrap technology. This Anti Hair Wrap is a mix of blades and bristles on the head of the vacuum. This stops any long people or pet hairs from being wrapped up.
The whole thing was very easy to put together, as each component is labelled and clicks into place. This took about 3 mins to put together all in and I was very happy about that. The purple look is very SHARK and feels on-brand for them. The handle has a great rubber grip on it, which is comfortable in the hand. The handle also features the 3 cleaning settings, which light up when selected. A small design feature, but the labels are upside down, so when using it you can read them.
The SHARK DuoClean AZ950UK weighs around 7.5kg. This is a big home cleaner, it’s not a battery-operated stick cleaner. This is drilled home by the long power cord needed to power this baby.
The 3 mode settings are for hard floor, low carpet and thick carpet. The SHARK DuoClean AZ950UK changes modes based on these settings. There is an LED on the side to indicate how the brush head is doing, green is good, red means it needs a clean. Cleaning is easy, as everything clicks out and back in.
There are some added goodies included with the SHARK DuoClean AZ950UK. This includes a tool for upholstrey and a tool for tight places. These are both stored on the back of the cleaner.
Introducing Shark’s new Anti Hair Wrap Technology
The Powered Lift-Away mode allows the handle to be removed, to transform into a handheld cleaner. The hose even has its own set of lights on the end. The main body can also be removed along with the hose, so you can hold the body in one hand and the hose in the other to clean.
The dust and dirt are all collected into the main body which uses Shark’s Anti-Allergen Complete Seal. This seal captures and traps 99.9% of dust and allergens inside the vacuum, not releasing them back into the air you breathe. The whole thing is bagless, so when its full you can flip the cap on the end to empty the contents.
The whole thing is really easy to manoeuvre. Doing my best Mrs Doubtfire impression, I was able to manoeuvre the SHARK all over the flat with ease. I am not a fan of the headlights on the front, I get why they are there, but it feels gimmicky. One thing I was happy to hear, was the whole device is a lot quieter than previous models.
The Shark DuoClean AZ950UK worked great on my laminate flooring and then switched to carpet mode with no problems. It picked up hair and trodden in dirt. I was able to go round my whole flat in around 20 mins.
If you are after an all-in-one cleaner, then the Shark DuoClean AZ950UK is what you need. The Anti Hair tech alone is the reason to get this. No more do I have to spend a morning cutting out hair from the rollers. This is 100 times better then the VAX Platinum. Finally, check out our other lifestyle reviews.
