A robot vacuum works on its own to clean your floors
Vacuuming floors and carpets can take up a lot of time during your busy week, but with a robot vacuum cruising your floors every day, every room you walk into will be sparkling clean.
What is a robot vacuum?
A robot vacuum is a vacuum cleaner that will clean your floors without you having to lift a finger. Unlike canister or upright vacuums, you don’t have to push or pull a robot vacuum around the room because it moves by itself.
How does a robot vacuum work?
The latest robot vacuums have intelligent onboard programming, and that programming will guide your robot vacuum across floors, help it avoid stairs, and will map out your entire home so it always knows where it began cleaning that day and where it ended. When it’s finished and needs a recharge, a robot vacuum will head back to its docking station or charger and recharge before it heads out for another cleaning session.
Unique features of robot vacuum cleaners
A robotic vacuum has many different unique features, and those features depend on which brand and model you purchase.
Cleaning features of a robotic vacuum
A vacuum robot works on its own to clean your floors. Depending on the robot vacuum model you purchase you can tap into brushless extractors to remove hair tangles and make a clean sweep of pet hair, spinning side brushes to pick up everything rolls past, and edge-sweeping brushes to clean along tight edges.
Emptying the dust bin is easy too, and that’s because robot vacuums have a bagless design.
Types of floor surfaces a robot vacuum can clean
Most types of robot vacuums can clean all surface types: from carpet to hardwood, tile, and laminate, you’ll never need to worry about your robot going off course.
How long does the battery last?
You’ll be able to keep your floors clean thanks to the long battery life of a robot vacuum. These types of vacuum cleaner can have a run-time of one to two hours, and when they are low on battery they’ll head back to their dock for a recharge.
Wi-Fi lets you start your robot vacuum from anywhere
Some models of robot vacuums have Wi-Fi built in. Take the iRobot for example: you can use the iRobot HOME app to set a schedule for your robot vacuum to clean every day. Even when you aren’t home, you can login and turn on your iRobot and access reports that trace a path where the robot cleaned last.
When you have a connected robot vacuum you can also control it via the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. It lets you use voice commands to stop, start, or dock your vacuum.
