Vacuum Cleaner Robot
There’s no way around it: You have to do housework. Aside from the regular dishes, laundry and straightening you do, your house needs deeper cleaning, like vacuuming, sweeping and mopping. By the end of the day, there’s little time left to do the things you want to do. You can take back some of your free time by investing in a robot vacuum. These little housecleaning helpers won’t replace your upright vacuum cleaner or mop, but they can help you maintain a cleaner home so you don’t have to do those deep cleans quite so often.
Robot vacuums have been on the market for almost two decades – These small disc-shaped automated vacuum cleaners use a variety of sensors to track dirt, pet hair and other debris on carpeted floors and hard surfaces. They employ different rotating brushes that help pick up bits and pieces along edges of baseboards and rugs. The best robot vacuums use HEPA media filters that can trap allergens, such as pet dander, pollen and dust mites, and mitigate allergies.
A robot vacuum may be sophisticated enough to pick up dirt and debris from your floors and then steer itself back to its charging station, but there are a few things it needs your help with. For example, if you don’t want it going into a certain room, you need to either close the door or use a virtual wall, magnetic boundary or a virtual lighthouse that come with some models. You also need to empty its dustbin and clean its filter regularly or it won’t have room to store all of that dust and hair, and its performance will suffer.
