It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that technological improvements in almost all departments have changed the way we lead our lives today. Gone are the days when we had to work hard at home to get our daily tasks done. With the advent of new-age electrical appliances, we have found significant support in our daily chores. In the recent past, this trend has also witnessed an upgrade. Electrical appliances have given way to robot-controlled devices that use Artificial Intelligence to complete our chores, as we spend our time in other productive purposes or even for relaxation.
One of the first tools that come to our mind that uses AI is a robot vacuum cleaner. These are easy to use and you can train your pets to operate them as well. They clear corners that would have never been possible with your ordinary cleaners. If you want to get the best services and benefits from their technological brilliance, you need to choose them wisely. Take note of the following points when you decide to purchase one of these robotic devices:
While it is true that robot vacuum cleaners are very similar to a standard vacuum cleaner regarding its cleaning/sucking efficiency, it scores quite highly regarding its ease of operation. In the case of conventional vacuum cleaners, you have to take it around to various places in your home, under the carpets, behind cupboards, etc. to get them cleaned thoroughly. On the other hand, cleaners powered by robotic technology can be set to perform on their own, without even touching them. So, when you choose them, check for features like timer-settings, electric-charging facilities, detection of stairs and walls, the amount of noise control, and other features that will make your lives easier.
If you want your robot vacuum cleaner to get under all the nooks and crannies of your home and clean the most difficult to access areas as well, you should get models that are small in size. Vacuum cleaners that are around 9.5″ in height would be ideal for you. When cleaners are this small, they will be able to crawl under beds, carpets, and cupboards to clean the tightest of areas in your home. Usually, all robotic cleaners have a small bin for collecting dirt, so this factor shouldn’t make a difference to you while choosing your robotic cleaner.
Select a robotic vacuum cleaner that comes with a long-lasting battery life. Lithium ion batteries are considered to be the best because they can be utilized for at least two hours at a time. Yes, these batteries are costlier than other models, but, they provide you with the full value of your money because you don’t have to change them as often as regular batteries. Also, choose robotic cleaners that get charged quickly, so that it acts as a handy appliance for you when you want to clean your homes quickly but perfectly. Some of the best models of vacuum cleaners take around five hours to get recharged fully. This is considered to be an ideal benchmark for you to compare against when you buy a new model for use in your home.
Do you know statistics show that 90% of household work are carried out by women? So, if you wish to get a man to initiate housework and the vacuuming, perhaps it might be time to introduce him to a robot vacuum cleaner. The first few times I used mine, I sat for hours watching it operate. I was utterly fascinated by how it traversed the labyrinth of my main floor living area. In fact, I was so excited, I could hardly wait for it to recharge so that I could start it up again.
