Around our house, my Lady is always fussin’ ’bout the dog hair and dirt we bring in. I don’t shed all that much, but them Shepherd brothers and sisters has enough hair to knit rugs with WOOF! But, I will have to own up to rollin’ in the dirt. It is one of my favorite things! I roll and roll and my Lady says I look like a ghost ’cause I’m covered in a layer of dirt and dust. Well, you guessed it! It ends up in the house. Then, my Lady has to run the noisy sucker machine that cleans things up. She got a new cleanin’ machine the other day called a Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology. Boy! That’s a mouthful ain’t it?
She’s been busy as bee cleanin’ everything from the floor to the ceilin’. Surely my dirt don’t go to the ceilin’ does it? It must be a human thing to want stuff so clean. Lemme fetch my Lady to tell ya ’bout her new cleanin’ machine WOOF!
Here’s what my Lady says about the Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology
With 7 dogs in my home, vacuuming is a daily occurrence and I really should be crowned the Queen of vacuuming! Five out of the seven dogs are super heavy shedders that leave wads of hair that float across the floor like tumbleweeds. If I miss a day of vacuuming, it means I will do double time the next day. And, if you have pets, you know the pet hair doesn’t just exist on the floor. Nope! Hair is in all cracks and crevices in your home. It is on the couch, the bed – heck, I have found it sticking to the lamp shades! Sigh!
After asking a few friends for recommendations on a vacuum that could hold its own against all the dog hair, their recommendations of a Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology had me sold on trying one. What impressed me the most was the DuoClean Technology. DuoClean Technology means it has the power of 2 distinct brushrolls spinning in unison to pull in large, small, and stuck-on particles on floors and carpets – that’s Triple Particle Cleaning.
Let me introduce you to Shark and then we will take a look at all the cleaning I have been doing with the Shark Rocket DuoClean!
About the Shark Rocket Complete with DuClean Technology
The Shark® Rocket® Complete with DuoClean™ Technology has the power of two distinct brushrolls spinning in unison to remove dirt from carpets and bare floors of every type.
The dirt that gathers on floors and in carpets comes in three sizes – small, large, and stuck-on. Cleaning all three can be a real challenge for an ordinary vacuum. With Triple Particle Cleaning™, there’s no need to rely on dustmops and brooms to get the dirt left behind.
Yikes! Do you see that hair under the table? It is that way all through my house and on a DAILY basis. It is a full-time job keeping up with dog hair! Sometimes you may be tempted to sweep it up, but that is a horrible mistake! Sweeping will cause the hair to fly through the air and land on everything! The only way I have learned to keep up is daily brushing of all 7 dogs and daily vacuuming with a great vacuum.
The Shark Rocket Complete Leaves Floors Clean of Hair and Dust!
The Shark Rocket DuoClean Vacuum makes quick work of cleaning up the hair and dust. It pulls the hair in and the soft brush roll lifts the dust and dirt and pushes it back to be sucked up by the vacuum. It leaves the floor clean and free of hair and dirt. My old vacuum would suck up the hair, but it always left a film of dust on the floor that you could see and feel. The Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology grabs both hair and any dust particles in its way, leaving the floor clean and shining – no film or grit left behind!
Handles Large Particles Easily!
Another common problem I have is stray dog food. It seems my dogs like to spill their food bowls or drop food when they eat. Actually, most of them will take a bite and carry it somewhere else to eat – only they leave stray bits here and there. Instead of having to pick it up in my hand, the Shark Rocket Complete gobbles it right up! It handles large particles as well as it does the hair and dirt.
The roller brushes are easily accessed from the top of the vacuum cleaner. This makes it easy to get carpet fibers, strings, etc, from around the roller brush and clean the soft brush roll.
For me, it is an endless cycle of vacuuming with 7 dogs running through my house and in the way when I try to vacuum. I can honestly say I can see hair falling off of them as they walk past me! Maybe not so much with the short haired dogs, but the German Shepherd and Australian Shepherds are another story! But, the floors is not my only problem! Hair is EVERYWHERE! That means I need attachments and lots of them!
Let’s check out a few of the attachments that come with the Shark Rocket Complete!
Shark Rocket Complete Vacuum with DuoClean Technology includes:
12” Crevice Tool
Pet Upholstery Tool
On-Board Tool Clip
Under Appliance Wand – I found critters I didn’t know I had under my fridge EEK! What a super handy gadget! I no longer have to wait on the hubs (an act in itself) to move appliances to clean underneath.
The True Pet version of the Shark Rocket DuoClean Complete also comes with:
Mini Motorized Brush – Oh my! I love this tool! This little jewel is the best for cleaning upholstery like couches and chairs. It rids them of embedded dander and pet hair that seems to have taken root inside the fabric. It removes dirt, dust, and allergens from deep inside pillows, upholstery, and carpets.
Duster Crevice Tool – Besides just a crevice tool, this one has a brush attached to it and you can use it either way. It’s like having two cleaning tools in one. The crevice tool gives you extended cleaning reach for small spaces, while the dusting brush cleans a multitude of surfaces. I LOVE this tool for getting into corners, behind furniture, and it’s also great for those cobwebs in the ceiling corners 🙂
You can easily detach the power head from the vacuum to connect the various attachments. Just press and release. Then, simple attach whatever attachment you need. You can release from the short end of the wand OR at the power-head end if you need extended reach for ceilings or if you want to clean that forgotten trim on top of the window facings 🙂
From furniture, dusting, cracks, crevices, under appliances – there is a tool for that! And, back to the power-head – it swivels easily and is thin enough to get under most furniture.
The Shark Rocket Complete will lay flat to slide underneath furniture. I also love that it pulls dirt and debris away from baseboards. Just simply run up close and the suction takes over!
Emptying the Dust Cup
Emptying the dust cup is easy! Simply press the button and it slides right off. Empty and you are ready to go again. I am ashamed to say I had to empty it quite a few times the first time I used it. I guess my old vacuum wasn’t quite cutting it. As time went on though, I can now make it through my whole house by only emptying a couple of times. Keep in mind I have 7 hairy dogs, which equals enough hair to weave a rug each time I vacuum!
Cleaning the Filter
I love how easy it is to clean the filter. You do not have to purchase expensive replacements. You just simple open up the filter compartment, take out the foam filter, wash, and replace. Easy peasy!
Finally, I have to say I love the light on the Shark Rocket Complete! You can actually see the dirt and hair as you come to it. It is nice and bright. I’m not sure if that is a good or bad thing? Seeing all that dirt and hair sends me into a cleaning frenzy!
When you are finished with your vacuuming, the Shark Vacuum stores easily on the handy storage hook it comes with.

Does the Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Pass the Pet Test?
When you live with as many furbabies as I do, you want a vacuum that is EASY TO USE and is UP TO THE TASK OF LOADS OF HAIR AND DIRT! The Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technolgy has tackled the problem head on! I love the ease at which it cleans the floors and how easy the attachments are to use. I also love that it DOESN’T LOOSE SUCTION POWER! It is a power-horse when it comes to sucking up debris! I cleaned everything in sight when I first got it and about did myself in, but the Shark Rocket was still going! While I have mostly hardwood floor, it transitions easily from carpet to hardwood to rugs. Cleaning wise, I give the Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology an A+!
However, I do have a couple of cons. First, and it isn’t really a big deal, the vacuum will not stand up on its own. You have to lay it down each time. It is because of the weight on the handle end. Secondly, and while it is a super light and easy to maneuver vacuum for the floor, long runs at using the attachments and holding the weight in your hand can wear your arm out. Again, keep in mind that I have an unusual load of cleaning with 7 hairy beasts! Overall, however, I am very pleased and would highly recommend!
If you have loads of cleaning to do and looking for a vacuum that can handle everything from ceiling to floors, take a look at the Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology!
