Buying a Robot vacuum: What you have to consider

These questions must be dealt with before Buying a Robot Vacuum

Buying a Robot Vacuum is an important decision and must be carefully considered to avoid misuse. In this section, I will explain the most important criteria you need to be aware of. In the following list the most important points are listed.

These questions must be carefully considered before Buying a Robot Vacuum Cleaner,so that the device has the right function. We will explain in the following which functions that have to be.

Stairs and many edges are available

If you are one of those people who live in a house, then you need to have a vacuum robot with a function to recognize stairs. This function is indicated by the manufacturer as a fall protection function. So be sure to check this feature before buying a vacuum robot. If this function is not specified by the manufacturer, then the device does not have this function. Do you have an apartment where there are still small section between the rooms, then you should keep in mind that the robot alone can not overcome these small stairs. So you have to carry the device after cleaning a room in the other room. If you live in a very winding apartment with many rough edges, you should make sure that you can attach extra brushes for the corners before Buying a Robot Vacuum. In addition, the Navgation must be on a high level.

Are pets in the household

Most pets (cats and dogs) ignore the robot after initial curiosity. Nevertheless, this is no guarantee that the coexistence of robot and animal runs smoothly.  If necessary, robot and pet must be temporarily separated from each other. There are also special vacuum robots that specialize in animal hair. When buying, make sure that the device has a main brush. With these devices, the hair gets caught, which drastically reduces the suction power. Better suited for this case are vacuums with a special vacuum shaft. Then no hairs can catch more. The best suction robots have a removable main brush and are therefore flexibly adaptable. Last but not least there are vacuums with certain filters to reduce the unpleasant odors of animals.

Vacuum robot for allergic or smoker

As with animals, there are special vacuum robots for allergy sufferers. A so-called HEPA (high-efficiency-particulate-arrestance) filter is perfect for allergy sufferers. The filter retains the finest particles and suspended matter such as pollen, spores or mite faeces. This reduces the risk of allergic reactions. For smokers is the same as in animals to reduce the odors.

Vacuum robot for different floor coverings

Vacuum robots are suitable for almost all floors. These include tiles, laminate, parquet and short-pile carpets. But if your home is mostly furnished with long-pile carpet, I advise against buying a vacuum robot. The brushes would impose themselves constantly. Actually, every vacuum robot has problems with carpets. We have not found one but if you find one let us know😊.

Robot Vaccums and carpets

If there are several carpets in your home with larger fringes then you need a vacuum cleaner with anti-tangle function. This function prevents tangling with carpet fringes or loose cables. In addition, a threshold crossing is recommended for carpets. If this is not there, the robot may recognize the carpet as an obstacle and then simply turn it over
