Features of Shark Navigator Lift-Away Vacuum NV352

Fade free technology

The first and probably the most important feature of any vacuum cleaner is the power that it emits while cleaning. If the vacuum does not have enough power, you will most likely not get value for your money. To this end, the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Vacuum seems to be the best thanks to the fade free technology. This feature helps in maintaining a uniform cleaning pattern irrespective of the size of the cleaning area.


Another important feature of the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Vacuum is the fact that it is portable and easy to handle. The vacuum is one of the lightest upright vacuums in the market today. Even with the bagless dust cap, the vacuum weighs slightly above 12 pounds which is way below the average vacuum cleaner weight. Its portability is further enhanced by the swivel steering that makes it even easier to handle. The swivel steering serves to increase its maneuverability around the house. It makes it easier to steer in areas that would otherwise be unreachable.

HEPA filtration technology

The Shark Navigator Lift-Away Vacuum also comes with the HEPA filtration technology that cleans the air that is sucked into the system. This gets rid of the allergens by taking the air through a series of filtration processes. It starts by trapping both large and small debris in the dust cap and then separates them to ensure the fine dust particles do not escape back into the air in the room.

The swivel steering is specifically meant to increase the ease with which you can access different areas of the house while cleaning. The HEPA cleaning technology is another performance feature that ensures the vacuum expels clean quality air in the environment leaving your house smelling fresh and free from allergens. The technology helps in sucking all the debris from the floor and filters even the finest dust preventing it from escaping.

Customer reviews of Shark Navigator Lift-Away Vacuum NV352

There are over 5433 customer reviews about the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Vacuum. Almost all of the reviews are positive reviews. Customers love the portability of the vacuum and the fact that it has much less noise than most models. One customer in particular likes the idea of the fade free suction saying it cleans beyond average. I would often complain about corded vacuums but surprisingly, most customers are okay with it.

The only problem with this vacuum is that it has a shorter cord and even though this doesn’t seem to be a deal breaker, it should have been longer according to one customer. Otherwise, the vacuum is a perfect deal.
