How Do Robot Vacuums Work?

Vacuums really have come a long way. From the early years of suffering dragging around a plastic hose connected to a wheeled canister the size of a tortoise, until today where you don’t even need to stand up and get off of your couch. In fact, you can even do your vacuuming while away. Behold the robot vacuum cleaner! Though it isn’t as good as your upright vacuum cleaner, they are a more convenient way of keeping your floors clean with minimal effort.

Latest robot vacuum cleaners stray far away from their first models where you have to track them down around your house in case they run out of power. Today, they memorize the layout of your floor to increase efficiency, finds their way back to their docking stations to recharge and can be controlled easily from just a tap in your smartphone.

Be informed though that robot vacuums are just supplementary devices for a standard vacuum cleaner. They are meant to perform scheduled clean-ups to keep your home cleaner in between regular vacuuming times, which also means that if you’re someone who hardly vacuums in the first place, a little device like this can help you a lot in getting your floor cleaner without even exerting much effort.

Different robot vacuum cleaners have different approaches in cleaning your household; some take a systematic way in traversing your house while others look like they move randomly but still maps out the room through built-in cameras or other sensory technology. Some robot vacuums come with a remote control to direct them to any exact spot you want them to clean.

Robot vacuum cleaners also come with different accessories like types of cleaning brushes suited to a certain kind of dirt you want to be cleaned. Others come with a virtual wall, too. A small device to put around your home to block off areas you don’t want your robovac to get into.
