Customer Questions & Answers for
Shark Shark Sonic Duo Carpet and Hard Floor Cleaner

The Shark Sonic Duo KD450WM promises a quick, powerful and easy way to remove stuck-on dirt from carpets, area rugs and hard floors. It is a total floor care system that cares for, cleans and finishes all hard floor surfaces and carpets. It provides a better clean with less effort every time. To get your carpets truly clean, the Sonic Duo first removes the visible dirt on the surface of the carpet. Then the carpet solution with Trap & Remove Technology penetrates deep and attaches to the stuck-on dirt down deeper into the fibers. As the solution dries, it dehydrates the dirt, unlocking it from the fibers, so it is easily vacuumed away later. Carpets are left cleaner and fresher. Hard floors are deep cleaned and are left with a beautiful non-streak finish with no dulling residue. To get your hard floors truly clean, the sonic action and specially formulated cleaning solution work together with the pad to get rid of the dirt — even down into the cracks.

Yes this is the same one. You can order from Walmart online, or many other stores carry it online too. Walmart has started carrying the product in store also. It is the cheapest price for the duo I could find, and the cleaners seem to be the same price no matter where you buy them.

Is it worth the money?

I just bought the SpotBot from Bissell and it doesn't work that well and before I spend another two hundred plus dollars I was wondering if the Shark Sonic Duo was worth the money.

I think it is worth it if you don't have super dirty carpet. Maybe for maintenance in between shampooing. I was most impressed with the hard floor cleaning, but will definitely continue to use with my carpet also.

The reason I bought it was because it can be used on carpet and floors. I love the convenience of that. Also, the machine is so light it is very easy to use, nothing like those heavy unmanageable dedicated carpet cleaners. But, saying that, it probably doesn't have the cleaning power of those big units for carpet.

I think that it could be cheaper but it's a brand new product. If you don't plan to use the carpet-cleaning feature, you can save about $50 by just purchasing the hard floor unit. I can't see using the carpet-cleaner for large areas. Probably worth the money if you can afford it because, thus far, it's a one-of-a-kind product.

You spray the solution by pressing a button on the handle ( like the spray button on an iron), then you run the machine over that area. It leaves it clean and damp and the just air dries.

You use the cleaner that sprays from the machine, the floor is damp not wet. I tried it on my tile floor and found it didn't clean into the grout lines. I would recommend cleaning those the old fashioned way with a scrub brush then using the Sonic duo over the overall floor.

It goes on the pad, and then you throw it in the wash. When the solution loosens the dirt deep down in the carpet, you are supposed to vaccuum over it when it dries to get rid of that.

Onto the cleaning pad. Then you just throw in the washing machine and ready for next time.

It sticks to the pad you attach to the bottom. The pads are washable.

answer 4
If you're using the Sonic Duo to clean a hard floor the soil winds up on the washable pad. For carpeting, some of the soil will be on the pad but you'll also need to vacuum thoroughly after the carpet is dry to remove the dirt that the Sonic Duo loosens but doesn't remove.

answer 1
I have pretty long carpet and it works great. I think its easier to get in between the fibers and get deep down. Berber carpet is like a harder, looped fiber.. definitely hard to scrub through so i think that is why there have been problems with that type of carpet.

I have a very thick, long fibered carpet. I have had a lot of trouble with other cleaners not being able to suck the water back out of the carpet duo to its thickness. I had no problem with the sonic duo. I was very pleased, and it dried very fast.

I don't believe it will get down to the bottom of a shag carpet, but it certainly is worth the in-between heavy-duty cleaning and should even prolong the time beteen heavy-duty cleanings.

I have very thick, plush carpet and it worked pretty good. I doubt if you have deep stains it would work on them though. Seems like more of a surface carpet cleaner to me. Does brighten them and fluff them up good too.

My carpet is a light ivory grey. Ideally, I think the best result would be to start with a carpet recently cleaned with one of those machines you rent, or by a professional carpet cleaner and then use the sonic to keep it up. But I didn't do that, and my carpet had lots of dirt marks from the patio door through the dining room from my dogs. I was really happy with the result even after the first time I used the Sonic on that area. It looked a 1000 times better. It also worked great on a stubborn spot on the bedroom carpet - was some kind of dirt or oil spot and I had tried everything to get it out. Just pre-treated and couple swipes with sonic and it was gone!

Depending on how long it has been there it will do an excellent job. You have 2 different speeds to try and some of the best cleaning solutions I have ever used. I had a 2 year old ground in dirt stain on a berber carpet that I treated with the Sonic Duo cleaners and the machine and it removed most all of it and then went over it with my regular carpet cleaner right afterward and it was finally able to remove the rest.

Well probably nothing cleans as good as scrubbing on your hands and knees, but this works excellent on my slate tile floors. I have 2 dogs and a cat and they have not had any reaction to the solutions. I am very sensitive to chemical odours from cleaners, and neither of the solutions have any detectable odour.

That's one of the reasons I tried it because I didn't want to scrub on my hands and knees anymore. It's a time saver and no more pain in the knees. As for my pets well they are still alive and are acting normal so it seems safe enough.
