Learning the basics of automatic vacuuming 04/26/16


Many people clean once a week, while others clean only when the in-laws come to visit. The truth is that the appeal of the automatic vacuum cleaner reaches both camps thanks to the fact that the house is spotless with minimal human input. The good news is that the robotic vacuum cleaners of today are very different from the first models that you had to follow and that were usually stranded somewhere in the house. The latest products will make your home spotless, remember the layout and make it back to the charging station to recharge. If you want to learn more about how an automatic vacuum works, you should read the following in-depth examination.

The ABC’s of robotic vacuuming

Today, there is a wide range of robotic cleaning systems available, and they typically range in price from $50 all the way up to thousands of dollars. These models are low and close to the floor, which means that unlike an upright cleaning system they can get under the furniture. Even if the vast majority of manufacturers will tell you that a robovac is designed to supplement the human-hand pushed cleaner, not replace it. The robovac is meant to perform daily and weekly touch-ups to keep your home clean between cycles. However, if you are the type of person that does not like cleaning in the first place, you will find the robotic cleaner a great help in getting your floor cleaner. With regards to brands, the most popular one in the United States is iRobot Roomba that comes in various models.

What makes a good robot vacuum

There are three parts that make the robovac tick: the vacuum, software and the sensors. A powerful vacuum as well as a dust bin are fitted into the small circular body of the device. In order to give the robovac enough suction, manufacturers make the motor bigger and they leave enough space for the dirt bin so that you as a user do not have to empty the bin on a daily basis. If both of them were made big would mean to build a bigger robovac, which is not a very good idea. What manufacturers do is spend much time making the cleaning brushes as efficient as possible so as to make something small, but that works. On the other hand, the software makes sure that the unit has an idea about where it is and what it has to do. Software occupies no space at all and how good the software is depends largely on how much money was put in its design. The self-navigation system is what actually makes the robotic cleaner robotic. Owing to the infrared sensors, the robovac does not run into the wall. The device sends out sensors and expect them to bounce back.

Do you really need an automatic vacuum?

If you have wooden floors and short carpets, then you are fortunate because robovacs work best on these surfaces. Robovacs are not designed to handle large rooms. An automatic vacuum is a great way to keep your small apartment or studio. All in all, robovacs make cleaning on the weekend a lot easier, being actually designed with this use in mind.
