All About Robot Vacuum Cleaners

A robot vacuum cleaner is an artificially intelligent unit that automatically cleans your house. The unit comes programmed to work by itself to give your house a clean look.

Who needs the vacuum cleaner?

The unit is ideal for different types of people. If you have a physical disability this unit is ideal for you. Since it doesn’t require a lot of your involvement, it’s able to get rid of dust and dirt thus keeping your house clean. The unit is also ideal for you if your house has plenty of hard surfaces and shorter carpet lengths. Research shows that the robots are unable to work on carpets that are too thick as the tiny wheels can’t traverse the carpet.

Experts recommend the units to people with small apartments. The vacuums aren’t designed to handle large rooms thus you shouldn’t go for them if you have a 10 bedroom mansion. If you have a one bedroom apartment you can go ahead and buy the unit. In addition to the cost of running the robot vacuum cleaner going up when you have many rooms, you also put the unit at the risk of failing when you do so.

Taking a look at the unit features

The robot vacuum cleaner has a number of exciting features that include:

Sensor technology: The sensors allow the units to negotiate its way around the house. The technology differs with the make and brand of the vacuum cleaner. There are some that use the infrared sensors while others use laser-guided scanners. The more advanced the technology, the more expensive the unit is and the better it works.

Remote control: There are some units that come with a remote control that allows you to control the unit from the comfort of your seat. Others have a phone app that allows you to not only direct them around the house, but also schedule the cleaning at different times of the day. When buying the units, go for a unit with a smart functionality. This is to allow automated home cleaning.

Brushes: Brushes determine how well the vacuum cleaner works. The units come with different types of brush types. There are those that have brush bars with beaters that lift dirt to the surface then suck it up. There are others that have turbo brush bars.

When making the purchase, you should research and find the right brushes for your floor.
