Robot vacuum cleaners have become the favourite of many homeowners around the world. The reasons are not far-fetched; many people now fancy the idea of cleaning without getting directly involved and others just want to control everything from their phones. 

Robot vacuum cleaners are devices that utilize the power of artificial intelligence to clean different floor surfaces without human intervention. 

As a homeowner, embracing the full spectrum of functionalities in these cleaning robots can transform your approach to household maintenance. They not only minimize physical exertion but also streamline the cleaning process, allowing you to refresh your living space swiftly and efficiently.

1. Self Charge

Traditional vacuum cleaners need to be connected to a power source to work. Usually this involves long cords that tangle a lot during the cleaning process. Those that have batteries stop abruptly once their batteries are out. On the other hand, Robot vacuums are so smart that they can find their way to their dock when they need to charge. This implies that your robot cleaner can’t be missing as a result of stopping midway due to battery challenges. Furthermore, you are assured that your vacuum will be charged ahead of the next cleaning. 

2. Scheduling

Scheduling is one of the numerous benefits of a robot vacuum. It enables you to clean at any time and any day without your physical presence. You could schedule your cleaning for when you are out or even when you are asleep. The robot can be preset to perform its cleaning function as a daily chore.

3. Cliff Detection

A fall from heights could cause damage to your automatic vacuum. Thankfully, the programmers of the robot proactively installed a cliff detector in the device. This ensures that the AI cleaner stays away from heights and cliffs that could damage the device. You can also set a preset boundary which ensures the robot doesn’t go beyond certain circumferences and confines of the house. However, this might hinder thorough cleaning because the movement of the automated vacuum will be restricted.

4. Self Emptying

Unlike conventional vacuums, your physical involvement is not needed for you to empty the dirt gathered by a robot vacuum. Several auto-vacuums have a self-emptying function that saves you the stress of removing the bin after every cleaning process. Rather than pull out the dirt and empty it, your only assignment will be to replace the bag at intervals when it gets full. This can be as far apart as once in 3 months!

5. Easy Maintenance

Robot vacuums are easier to maintain than their manual counterparts. They are built with stronger and better materials and designed to last longer. Additionally, they have several sensors that prevent them from coming in contact with surfaces and objects that could damage them. Hence, reducing your maintenance task.

6. App Integration

The continuous rise in the smart home industry revenue over the last 9 years, according to Statista shows there is a demand for smart homes. Therefore, any household appliance that wants to thrive must be integrated into the smart home ecosystem. 

Fortunately, smart vacuum cleaners integrate seamlessly with other smart home appliances. Some robot vacuum cleaners can be integrated with Google, Siri, and Alexa. This makes it easier to control your cleaner with your voice.

One of the numerous benefits of an automated vacuum is the ability to control it from a distance. Most cleaning robots come with an app that can be used to control them. You could use the app for scheduling, control, and restraint of your vacuum cleaner. 

7. Compact Design

Robot Vacuums are compact. This equips them to fit into crevices and corners manual vacuums can’t clean. Consequently, there will be fewer dirty spaces in your home and this reduces breeding spaces for microbes and allergens. Additionally, their compact size equips them to give your floor a deep and comprehensive cleaning within a short time.

8. Sensors

Robot vacuum cleaners are made up of numerous sensors that equip them to function with little or no human interference. They have sensors like proximity and navigation technology. The proximity and navigation technologies enable them to sense and avoid obstacles, so the robot vacuum doesn’t get damaged. The vacuum also has sensors that detect different floor surfaces and adjust the suction power to suit the different surfaces. 

9. Numerous Cleaning Options

Different segments of the flat have varying degrees of dirt. By implication, some segments require more pressure for the dirt to come off. Maximizing these modes ensures that all edges and parts of the house are cleaned, and you have a dirt-free environment.  

Furthermore, this automatic change in suction power ensures that the auto vacuum doesn’t get damaged. It also ensures that your carpet and rugs maintain their texture and quality while simultaneously ensuring your home is clean.

10. Time And Energy Saving

Our outer worlds invariably affect our inner worlds and vice versa. A clean environment gives you a sense of order and control. Unfortunately, cleaning up could be a time-consuming endeavor. In fact, research has shown that many consumers prefer automated products like the robot vacuum cleaner because of the time and energy it saves (source).  

Robot vacuums have numerous sensors and control mechanisms. Hence, they do not need your effort to clean up your house. This allows you to free up your schedule so you can maximize your time and energy on more important activities.
