If you dislike vacuuming but can’t afford to hire a cleaner, then why not treat yourself to a robot vacuum? These trusty little robots make short work of your vacuuming, keeping your home clean and free of mess in the blink of an eye.
Running on rechargeable batteries, your robot vacuum cleaner uses sensors to scan and clean your floors, leaving you free to enjoy life without worrying about the state of your floors. Everyone needs a little robot that does all the vacuuming around their home.
How good is a robot vacuum cleaner?
A robot cleaner is perfect for laminate floors, as well as hard wood and tiles, but it’s not ideal for thick carpets. However, for people with solid flooring or a mix of carpet and hard flooring, a robot vacuum can be a wonderful help around the house. Even if this means vacuuming the thick carpets yourself, the rest of your house can be left to the robot vacuum.
One of the great selling points for these robots is that they can zip into all the hard-to-reach places, underneath sofas, armchairs, coffee tables, beds, vanities and other furniture. This makes them ideal if you have a bad back, hips or knees and have problems bending to clean these areas. You can even leave your robot vacuum cleaner to operate while you’re at work or out shopping and come back to a beautifully clean home.
Some of these robots are also programmable, so you can schedule cleaning times in specific sections of the house via a smartphone app. You can even check where it’s working in real-time and manually take over if it becomes stuck or one area needs more attention than another.
Limitations worth noting are that your robot vacuum cleaner can get stuck in tight spaces and will suck up anything in its path. So, if you have furniture that’s very low to the ground, you’ll need to check whether the robot vacuum has enough height room. Otherwise it could become trapped until you breeze in and save it. It will also suck up shoelaces, ribbons and any other small items laying on the floor. To gain full benefit from a robot vacuum cleaner without any hassle, it pays to remove anything from the floor that you don’t want sucked up or anything that can trap it as it’s navigating your home.
