Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Everyone has this fear of robots taking over the world. They feel more robots mean fewer jobs. I know a few posts I wouldn’t mind robots taking over, my chores. No one enjoys sweeping or vacuuming, and if they tell you they do, call their bluff. Since first launched, robot vacuum cleaner’s ownership has increased immensely. Does that mean that house helpers have lost their jobs? No, it just means their jobs are a little easier and less back-breaking. With the technology of said vacuum cleaners improving daily, I foresee a rise in sales.

Robot Vs Traditional

Does the robot cleaner have on upon the traditional vacuum cleaner? While robot vacuums are useful in many ways, there are tasks they cannot execute, like cleaning your couches or curtains. Therefore they won’t replace the traditional space. You can have the convenience without the robot, but you can’t have the robot without the conventional. That should help answer some questions, they will not help save money, but they can help protect your back.

The Savings

One thing that you should consider is that they will save you time, and in this day and age, time is money. A robot cleaner can be programmed to clean your house daily if you would like. And an hour and a half daily will save you ten and a half hours, that’s a full workday so that the costs might come just out weight the time-saving. Some families hire a cleaner to do their vacuuming but think about how many other more critical chores they can take care of in the time they would take to vacuum the house.

Just imagine, sitting and watching your sports on Sunday, the NFL, or the UFC. Usually, there is that dark cloud over your head, that pestering voice in your ear reminding you of the vacuuming. The little robot vacuum would take those blues away, hell, he’ll even clean while you are watching, and a lot more quietly.

Look For

  • Check reviews, take them with a pinch of salt though because people find it easier to complain than praise
  • Check the running vs charging times. Lithium-ion batteries are a big plus
  • HEPA Filtration, this filtration captures the majority of dust particles, keeping the air as clean as possible.
  • Are the replacement parts obtainable, easily? Apart from the filters, will you be able to replace the brushes? How about the batteries and wheels?
  • Remember to avoid defaulting on your warranty parts should be replaced either by the manufacturer or the original parts should be supplied by them.
  • Can you plan the area the robot should cover, to avoid stairs or ledges, or specific areas of the house?
  • Does the robot have the ability to learn? This is important for improving efficiency
  • Are your pets house trained? (we have all seen those videos)
