With so many different Robot Vacuum cleaners on the market, it is difficult to know exactly how to choose the best one for you, your family and your home. We have just listed our top five favorites but there a couple of other things you will have to think about before you make your new purchase. Don’t be overwhelmed by the amount of information available to you on the internet. Instead, be clear what it is that you need out of a Robot Vacuum and then trust your gut instinct.
Make sure you know what factors are the most important for you and you will find the perfect Robotic Vacuum cleaner for you and your home. We want to help you as best we can, so here are a few things that we think you should keep at the forefront of your mind when choosing a Robot Vacuum:
It is important for many people that their Robot Vacuum is compatible with Wi-Fi, Alexa or Google Assist. This means that not only is it much easier for you to control, alter the settings and modes but you can also stop to start the vacuum in the first place. With our lives being as busy as they are today, we want to make the boring process of vacuuming as easy as possible. By purchasing a vacuum that is compatible with one of the aforementioned facilities, this will mean that you can access your vacuum from any room in the house and even when you’re not in your home at all.
If you dream of returning from a long day at work to a house that is freshly vacuumed, it is essential that you check that your vacuum is compatible. For some people, the more technologically advanced the scarier or less accessible the gadget. If this is the case for you, then there are Robot Vacuums on the market which are designed for a more traditional usage through the requirement of a handheld control.
This may limit how you use the Robot Vacuum, for example, you could not turn it on if you were at work or out for a coffee, you would have to wait until you got home again, but this does not mean that the vacuum will be any less effective when it is switched on.
Clean the Corners
It’s really irritating when you can see patches on any flooring type which have been missed, either by a conventional hoover or a Robot Vacuum. The most common place to be missed by the Robot Vacuum is the corners of any room. This is usually because they are round in shape and cannot fit into a triangular space. However, this issue has been rectified by many Robot Vacuum companies, where they have created methods, such as extendible arms, extractable brushes or by altering the shape of their Robot Vacuum so that it can pick up the dust and dirt in all corners.
It used to be the case that the more money something cost for you to purchase, the better it was at its job. Sometimes that remains the case but it is slowly becoming an obsolete thought process. You can actually buy some very good vacuums at a fraction of the price of some really bad vacuums. The most important thing to consider is the suction power of a Robot Vacuum.
You really don’t want your new gadget to be moving around your home, sounds like it’s being helpful, looking like it’s working, but when you look closely at the floor it doesn’t have enough suction to pick up the majority of the dust and dirt in your home, resulting in you actually having to vacuum yourself in the old fashioned way. This totally defeats the object!
If you are easily affected by the noise something makes or are distracted easily, then this could be something that you really need to think about. For example, if you have children and you usually vacuum when they have gone to bed, you do not want a Robot Vacuum that is so loud it will wake them up and you will have to start the bedtime routine all over again.
Similarly, if you work from home or entertain a lot, you do not want the Robot Vacuum to be so loud that you either get distracted or cannot have a conversation with your friends. No one wants to be yelling when they are meant to be calm and sedate drink coffee and eating their cake.
Dust and More
For general use, but especially for pet owners and parents, it would make life a lot easier for you if you chose a Robot Vacuum which not only picked up dust but also larger debris, too. Mud, for example, dropped food, hair, grass, pet food etc. There’s not a great deal of point sending money on a clever gadget if it doesn’t actually make your home look any cleaner to the naked eye, and it will not lessen your workload if you have to get the more conventional vacuum out when the kids have gone to bed.
For us, the ideal Robot Vacuum cleaner has a greater Pa (suction power) and isn’t too loud, but that’s just us. This does not necessarily mean that the most expensive Robot will be the best, nor that the cheapest will be useless. Be sure that you are clear about exactly what it is that you require from a Robot Vacuum before you purchase it though.
There is such a vast range of Robot Vacuums on the market that even a brand you’ve never heard of could surprise you and with technological advances occurring so fast, you never know just what is around the corner.
The higher the suction power, the more dirt will be extracted from your home, so look for Robot Vacuums with higher Pa.
