Are Robot Vacuums Really Worth It?

At EH Clean, we are experts on how to vacuum any room, but in the last 5-6 years, a lot of companies have started making robot vacuums. Here are some things to consider before thinking about getting a robot vacuum. Our services will get the job done, but maybe you can use a robot vacuum for between our visits? 

Size of your space

Many of the reviews I read claimed that robot vacuums work best in smaller homes and apartments.  Most of the vacuums hold their charge for 60-70 minutes, which wouldn’t be enough time for larger spaces.  The maximum charge of any robot vacuum that I could find was 90 minutes.  They also can’t do stairs at all.  If you have a multilevel home that is an important consideration to make.

The types of flooring

The robot vacuums work well on hard floors and tile, for the most part.  I saw varying reports on their performance on carpeting. Some reviews say they don’t work on any kind of carpeting, and others say they work on shorter pile carpet.  If you have a thick pile carpet you should probably stick with the traditional vacuum.

Do you have pets?

If you have pets who shed a lot, a robot vacuum can be an invaluable assistant in keeping the floors from collecting too much hair daily.  But, also consider the fact that if you have pet that is prone to accidents indoors, the vacuum can and will track the mess everywhere if you run it unattended.

Your amount of free time

If you’re already vacuuming the house daily, then a robot vacuum probably isn’t going to improve things all that much.  A traditional vacuum still provides much more powerful suction than any of the robot vacuums on the market.  However, if you find vacuuming consistently falling to the bottom of your weekly chores list, these vacuums can help fill in the gaps.

If you’re busy, have pets and kids, and/or need a relatively small area vacuumed, then a robot vacuum could be a good fit for your home.  Most reviewers acknowledge that robot vacuums aren’t really a replacement for your manual vacuum, and you’ll still need to do some of your own vacuuming on occasion.  It’s just another tool in your floor cleaning tool kit.
