Robotic vacuum cleaner guide
Nowadays people live more full and active lives than ever before. These demanding schedules quickly become overloaded and chaotic trying to fit in everything we have to do during the day. When this overwhelming chaos happens, we may sometimes find ourselves putting off some of the chores on our ‘to do list’ such as dusting and vacuuming. When these get postponed and the dirt and dust buildup occurs, I for one can’t stop sneezing and get grossed out by myself. Instead of hiring your own personal house keeper to come each week, since that may not be a realistic option for all of us, you may want to consider investing in a robotic vacuum cleaner.
A robotic vacuum cleaner, also known more commonly as a robovac, is exactly as its name sounds. Its intelligent programming allows it navigate around your home while doing some basic vacuum cleaning. The program system remembers the overall layout of your home, where the rooms, hallways, and walls are located, and most models have a wire strip that is able to sensor where stairs are so you won’t have to worry about the cleaner being damaged from falling down the stairs.
The two most popular and well known robovac series in the United States are Roomba and Mint. However, these two are completely different style robovacs. The Roomba is a disc shape, about 13” in diameter and about 3.5” tall. While there are a few different version generations of the Roomba, all of them utilize some form of rotating brush technology to pick up the dust and dirt. Replacement Roomba brushes are available for all of the different models.
The Mint cleaning system on the other hand features a swiffer-like technology that cleans dirty floors with either wet or dry clothes, so this won’t work well for carpets. However, it is a great idea for hardwood, linoleum, and tile floors.
