Run Errands While Your Floors Are Vacuumed By A Robot
Robotic Vacuum Cleaners For Floors
Robotic floor cleaners and vacuums are a great help in the home, and there are lots of impressive models around. The problem is that there are almost too many to choose from. The following list of 10 highlights top brands and models with interesting functions and specializations.
1) Iroomba 880 Vacuuming Robot
iRoomba models had to be at the start of this list because they are so popular and highly rated among users. The 800 is the best of the bunch for the time being. It uses what it calls its “revolutionary” AeroForce Cleaning System for a powerful clean across the home, on any floor type. It is small enough to get under the furniture, smart enough to work with a 7-day cleaning schedule and easy to use.
2) Iroomba 614 Vacuum Cleaning Robot
That isn’t to say that the iRoomba 614 isn’t a great model just because it is older. The 880 may be a little more powerful and smarter. However, the 614 is popular for those on a budget because it shares similar features. The robot is 3.6 inches tall, just like its successor. It also uses a 3-Stage Cleaning System for everything from dust and dirt to pet hair and large debris.
3) Neato Botvac Connected Robot Vacuum Cleaner
iRoomba isn’t the only type of robot vacuum out there with some power and a great performance. This Neato BotVac uses its D-shape body to get into more crevices and difficult areas. There is also laser floor mapping and object detection to create a route. Once in place, the tough brushes spin to pick up all kinds of dirt into the bagless system.
4) Samsung Powerbot Airborne Vacuum
We don’t always think of Samsung as a vacuum maker, but this Samsung POWERbot Airborne Vacuum is pretty smart and capable. It claims to have the important powerful section of all robotic vacuum cleaners, which is why its makes a list. This CycloneForce power, combined with the Point Cleaning and mapping tools make for a smart, user-friendly system.
5) Ilife V3s
Moving on to a name that might be more familiar, we come to the best robotic vacuum cleaner for pet owners. The iLife V3s has specialist pet hair technology for a quick clean and consistent result. It is also a little slimmer than the iRoomba at 3 inches and carefully negotiates its way around different floor surfaces. The four cleaning modes and route mapping is also aided by the inclusion of the remote control.
6) Ilife V5s
We can’t talk about the great pet hair vacuum of the iLife V3s without talking about the floor cleaner that is the iLife V5s. Not all robotic floor cleaners are strictly vacuums. This model has a water tank and mopping system as well. The vacuum element is still ideal for pet hair, and it still has all the best sensors and tech. However, the mop adds an essential new element for hard floors.
7) Bob Weep Pethair Robotic Vacuum Cleaner And Mop
On the subject of more versatile floor cleaning robots, we have to mention the Bob weep PetHair Robot. Like the model above, this robot tries to do it all. It has sensors to detect drops and stairs, side brushes for the edges and obstacle detection. It also boasts a high-sensitivity dirt sensor for bigger problems that require the mop. This makes is smart, effective and energy-efficient.
8) ECOVACS Robotic Vacuum Cleaner With Mop And The Water Tank
Another floor cleaner with a great mop and vacuum is this ECOVACS Robotic Cleaner. Perhaps better known as the DEEBOT N78, this model promises to vacuum in a single pass and mop where necessary. It can avoid furniture and return to its charging dock, so requires little human intervention.
9) Infinuvo Qq2
Versatility can come in handy in these robotic floor cleaners. This is because users can let them carry out many tasks without supervision. This is where the Infinuvo QQ2 comes in. This 3-in-1 cleaner promises to tackle dirt, dust and pair hair with ease as its vacuums, sweeps and sterilizes floors. Users can simply set up the timer and let it work across hard floors and under furniture to its heart’s content.
10) Everton Fd-2rsw(A)
Versatile models like these all-purpose floor cleaners are great for an all-over clean. However, there is some benefit to specialist model in the right circumstances. The final model in this list is the Everton FD-2RSW(A). This robot is a hard floor specialist with the right tools and methods for marble and granite. This robot works hard, avoiding edges and obstacles as it goes, and has the benefit of an easy-clean dirt box and carry handle.
