Shark NV752 TruePet Review
Pet hair vacuums are expensive, so shopping for a new one can be stressful. There are many different options and specs to keep in mind. It’s important to weigh what your needs and budget are before making a decision. The Shark Rotator NV752 is actually ranking high on our Shark top list as a decent lower budget model.
We thoroughly researched several vacuums for multiple purposes and came away feeling like the NV752 is one of the best units on the market. This model comes with many features that we found useful, especially at the comparatively low price point.

Compared to other lower budget vacuums, the NV752 is a high-quality device. It is both an upright vacuum and a powered canister vacuum, a model that you can easily and quickly turn from one type into the other.
The NV752 has a 30-foot cleaning range, long cord, and swivel steering that gives you a lot of range for cleaning and easy control. Plus, it comes with several accessories and LED headlights that are already built-in.
The NV752 is an extremely versatile model. When using it as a tradition vacuum, the NV752 shows great ability, especially when using it together with the hard floor tool or the main floor tool. The hard floor genie, as it is called, uses a washable microfiber pad that mops your floors.
Also included is a stiff-bristled motorized tool that works wonders to efficiently clean carpets. The NV752 has a strong setting that is meant for rugs and thick carpets, and it has a low setting for all other types of carpets. Naturally, these settings change the suction power and the speed at which the motorized brush turns. It doesn’t matter what type of flooring your home may have. This vacuum can take care of it.
The NV752 TruePet is named for its purpose as a vacuum for pet hair removal. If you have pets, this model is perfect for you! One of the attachment tools is specifically for dealing with pet hair. It has stiff bristles and helps a lot when cleaning upholstery. The reason this tool works so well is that its bristles stir or agitate the hair more strongly, allowing the vacuum to pick up more hair and debris with each pass.
Let’s say you need to vacuum out your storage closet. The lighting in there is terrible, so you never know if you really clean the floors. That’s where the headlights can show off how important of a feature they are.
Another time these lights come in handy is when you are trying to clean corners or under furniture. These places are always full of dust balls! The lights help you see everything clearly, allowing you to get much better cleaning results.
Microfiber Pad & Filters
The NV752 gives you smooth operation and allows you to maintain it well. As it should be the standard today, the microfiber pad and filter are both washable, which means your vacuum can be just as clean as your floors.
HEPA Filter and Anti-Allergen Seal
My mother has a dust allergy, so I am aware of the problems dust can cause. Many suffer from breathing disorders due to dust, but hardly any of us think about that when we buy a vacuum. You want your vacuum to last for a long time, so make sure you get one with proper anti-allergen filtration. After all, some of your relatives may have a dust allergy, or maybe your child develops one in a few years. It would be unfortunate if you had to replace your vacuum just because of that!
Luckily, most modern vacuums have you covered there, especially vacuums for pet hair. As you would expect from a vacuum today, the NV752 comes complete with Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology and HEPA filters. These HEPA filters trap dust and allergens inside the vacuum. Even if you aren’t worried about breathing problems yourself, the filters seal cat and dog dander and help your allergic guests breathe better.
Lots of Accessories
It is difficult to clean your whole house with just one vacuum, but that’s not the case with the NV752. It comes with a ton of different tools that will clean your hard floors, carpets, and upholstery.
One of those tools is the so-called hard floor genie I mentioned before. If you have pets, you can use the motorized brush and pet brush that cleans pet hair. To deal with fine dust, use the dusting genie.
We think this vacuum is great for pretty much anybody. From homemakers to corporate offices to anybody just looking to have a clean home at a budget price.
One of the best budget pet hair vacuums on the market, the NV752 is a good model and even has a spot in our top list for pet hair vacuums. It is easy to use and has great mobility. The NV752 is a 3 in 1 vacuum (almost 4 in 1 if you use the hard floor genie to mop your hard floors). You can easily convert it from a traditional vacuum to a canister vacuum, and to a powered lift-away unit.
The NV752 is on the heavier side for a portable vacuum, but the quality, price and sealed filters make it a heavy-duty machine disguised as a portable one.
With a ton of accessories, we think the Shark NV752 is versatile enough to be the only vacuum you’ll need in your home.
