Robot Vacuum Review: The Shark AI Ultra 2-in-1 Smart Vacuum

The Shark AI Ultra 2-in-1 Robot can vacuum and mop at the same time, and with matrix clean navigation, leaves no spots missed.

Shark has proven once again why it’s the number vacuum cleaning brand in America with the launch of the new Shark AI Ultra 2-in-1 Robot vacuum cleaner. It’s designed to vacuum and mop, clean more thoroughly with multiple passes, and self-empty into a HEPA-filtered base.

We review how the Shark AI Ultra robot vacuum works, what sets it apart from other vacuums, and highlight some Parade-reader discounts you can snag during the holiday.

The Shark AI Ultra Cleaning System

The innovative Matrix Clean Navigation system works exactly as you would use a regular vacuum cleaner, making multiple passes from multiple directions over messes, leaving no debris behind. The company claims this technology puts it ahead of other robot vacuums that only make single passes while vacuuming, which can often leave dirt and debris on your floors.

The self-cleaning brush roll has Power Fins to pull up pet hair and dirt without ruining the brush, designed to keep maintenance of the vacuum to a minimum and is ideal for families with pets. The Clean Edge technology really gets into every corner and edge by blowing the dirt and debris away from floor edges and into the path of the vacuum, so no dust bunny is left behind.

One reviewer was really impressed with the Clean Edge technology, saying “Since I am a perfectionist and neat freak, I was kind of reticent about removing debris from the edges and corners of the house, but I am really impressed, it did an awesome job at cleaning them!”

How the Shark AI Ultra Mapping Works

For busy families with an abundance of toys on the floor, the Shark AI Ultra is truly an ultra-smart robot vacuum cleaner, with tools to detect objects and work around them, so there’s no need to straighten up every time the vacuum runs.

Precision home mapping also teaches the robot which rooms are hardwood, and which have carpet, so it can adjust accordingly, and can be set up through the Shark Clean app. The app gives you complete control over the Shark AI Ultra smart vacuum, allowing you to schedule cleaning, map your house, set up rooms to avoid, and clean while you’re on vacation or out of the house.

According to one reviewer, “Setting up the app is a breeze. Afterwards, the robot would go around the rooms to draw a map. It's so accurate. Then we designated where not to go and set up a cleaning schedule. Then, we can totally forget about cleaning. It just does the job as scheduled.”

Shark AI Ultra Mopping Features

The Shark AI Ultra will also use its Sonic Mopping technology to vacuum and scrub floors at the same time, with 100 scrubs per minute.

One user was “thrilled to discover I didn’t need to do a vacuum cycle and then a mop cycle, this amazing robot does it all at once!”

The mapping allows the robot to know where and when it can mop and is easy to set up. “Unlike my previous generic robot, this one is smart! It mapped out my home and then allowed me to label each area on the app, decide which areas were off limit, mark areas that are carpeted so on mop mode I could prevent the robot from mopping there,” said one reviewer.

The Shark AI Ultra is also perfect for spot cleaning any time there’s a spill. Just load up the app, find the spot on the existing house map, and send the Shark AI Ultra in to handle the spills.

Shark AI Ultra Mobility and Other Cleaning Features

The mobility of the Shark AI Ultra is also way ahead of the competition with the ability to get itself out of some tight situations, and maneuver equally well over hardwood floors and carpet, as well as underneath some furniture.

When the Shark AI Ultra is finished with a clean cycle, it will return to the dock to recharge, and if you get the HEPA Filtered Self-Empty base, it will empty the debris into an anti-allergen Complete Seal chamber that only needs to be emptied on average once every 60 days.

With 120 minutes of run time, chances are good the Shark AI Ultra can get quite a bit of vacuuming done. However, if it does need to recharge in the middle of a cleaning, it will remember where it left off and once charged, start cleaning again from there, which makes it perfect for both small spaces and large alike.
