Answer: You can set the correct suction for any surface on the 356, so plush, floors, etc. Is a non issue.

Question: This model is impossible to use on my very thick, plush carpet. Which Shark is best suited for this kind of carpet?
Answer: Sorry, our carpet is plush (normal plush though) but it’s worked AWESOME for us and we have 2 kids and 2 golden retrievers. I can’t imagine it not working well. Have you played with the suction settings (you just twist where the hose meets the vacuum). Lower settings make the vacuum easier to push so it might help you!
