It's easy to get dirty floors squeaky clean with the Shark Navigator Lift-Away vacuum (starting at $179.99; amazon.com). This model was named the "navigator" since it can traverse most any surface as it clears away dust, debris and dirt.

What makes this vacuum extra convenient is the fact that it can switch easily from upright vacuum to portable. The canister detaches from the base so you can carry the lighter-weight canister wherever it's needed. With just the push of the button, your standing vacuum transforms into a grab-and-go sweeper that can clean hard-to-reach areas in the home, such as window seals and stairs.

There are multiple attachable nozzles for different parts of the home. For hardwood floors, there's the innovative "dust away" attachment piece that picks up everything from large debris to fine dust as it goes.

For those sensitive to allergens in the air, this vacuum has a completely sealed system and a filter so that dust is firmly trapped inside. And with a brushroll shutoff function, you're all set to switch between carpet and bare floors at the push of a button.

What are you waiting for? This professional-grade cleaner has over 9,000 satisfied customer reviews on Amazon and an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars — meaning you can feel confident that this vacuum is worth the investment.
