If you are constantly trying to find new ways to make your life easier, you might be curious about the robot vacuum cleaner. Robot vacuums are also interesting for anyone who is constantly trying to keep their house clean. But can they replace normal vacuums?
What exactly is the robot vacuum cleaner
A robot vacuum cleaner is a small machine that moves around your house and cleans it for you while you are doing something else. It also has sensors that help it navigate without bumping into the furniture or falling down stairs.
One of the most important features of a robot vacuum cleaner is that it can clean all sorts of surfaces, such as hardwood floors, carpets and rugs – even if they are thick and very dense. With some types of robot vacuums you have to place it on a stationary dock so it can recharge.
Types of robot vacuum cleaners
There are many types of robot vacuum cleaners. Some have a central cleaning unit, where all the dirt is stored so you only need to empty that compartment after each spot-cleaning session. Others have their own multi-voltage charge docks and they get recharged automatically when not in use. In some cases, there are robot vacuum cleaners that can be controlled remotely using a mobile app. Such machines are perfect for people who love to travel and want to make sure their house is properly cleaned when they’re not around.
Can robot vacuums replace a normal vacuum cleaner
As the name suggests, you can use a robot vacuum cleaner to clean your house. However, if they are better than normal vacuum cleaners in some aspects, they are still not perfect. If you have low-pile carpets or rugs, for example, it is best to use a normal unit since most of them won’t be able to clean them. Also, if there are too many obstacles in your home (furniture, cabinets, etc.) it is simply not safe to use a robot vacuum cleaner since they might get stuck or fall down the stairs while trying to get around them.
If you have pets or you are a smoker, they might not be very efficient when it comes to removing pet hair and nicotine stains from your floor.
Control your robot vacuum through mobile app
If you have a smartphone, for example, it will be easy to find the right robot vacuum cleaner that can be controlled remotely using an app.
Some units can only be controlled through the company’s apps, others can be controlled through mobile apps designed for iOS or Android.
As you can see, robot vacuum cleaners are really efficient when it comes to cleaning your home. But before purchasing one, make sure you know everything there is to know about their features and specs; check their power source (some of them might need a permanent docking station), storage capacity for dirt, etc.
