I've got a quite strong aversion to vacuuming my floors, but with three cocker spaniels playing around the home it's a job that you will find done regularly. I didn't want the expense of a maid and so i decided to settle for the next best thing - a robotic vacuum.
My search began and that i was astounded at just how a variety of models and makes there are. After much research and reviewing I made my choice and also have written this short article in order to save you some investigation time.
Below are the main things you should consider before buying your robot vacuum.
1. What is your real reason behind buying your robot?
If much like me, you are searching for a quick sweep up daily to pick up those loose hairs, you will want one which has a reasonable battery life and enormous capacity dust bin. A scheduler is nice so that you can place it to automatically start every single day.
For those who have mobility problems, bad back, strength issues you will want to think about the weight from the unit because you will need to make it for those who have any steps. Another good feature to possess is a handheld remote control to be able to have it towards the area you need easily.
2. Do you have areas that you want to help keep off-limits to your robot?
Most robots will have cliff sensors so that they won't fall down stairs etc. For those who have other locations / rooms that you don't want the robot to go in you will have to use virtual walls to bar them. Some robots come with such as, but others you'll have to buy them in an additional cost.
3. Would you like your robot to operate when you're not there?
If you want your robot to execute a thorough clean when you are not there you'll need a model that can be programmed to start unattended. It has to also have the functionality to go back to its charger and recharge when the battery gets low and then restart the cleaning where it left off.
If you get clear in your mind what you want from your robot before you purchase it'll make your decision far more easy. I love Herbert my robot, he never complains or requests a raise and it is liberating in the future the place to find clean floors.
