Robotics are slowly starting to edge their way into the plans of various industries, including the cleaning industry. Along with some of the high-tech cleaning equipment that we use here at Apple Clean, there have been developments in the typical domestic cleaning options that homeowners can make the most of, one of which is the robot vacuum cleaner.

Vacuuming is one of those things that simply adds to a long list of everyday cleaning chores, or at least that’s how a lot of people see it. Truthfully, we’d all like to abandon the prospect of vacuuming entirely and still know that the carpets in our homes or offices are in the excellent condition.

So maybe this is why there’s been such a major case made for these robotic vacuum cleaners, which are now commercially available and come in a variety of different models. Here are the pros and cons of a robotic vacuum cleaner sho0uld you be considering making it a new member of your cleaning arsenal.

Pros:

Reasonably Cheap

Robotic vacuum cleaners are actually quite cheap for a rather new form of cleaning technology. Most high-end models will compete with the most expensive of course but don’t be surprised to see prices that are below that of a standard vacuum cleaner.

No Hassle

Another benefit of having a robotic vacuum cleaner is the simplicity that they provide you with. You just have to set it up after purchase and once that’s done, you can leave it to get on with the work. Ultimately, you’ll save time as the robot gets on with job by itself and your home will probably be cleaner as a result as it sticks to a consistent and regular cleaning programme.

Small and Agile

If there were places you struggled to reach when vacuuming before, you certainly won’t have to worry about that with a robotic vacuum. Their design means that they can move under furniture, access corners and run along walls with ease, so you won’t need to do any lifting or moving of furniture.

Cons:

Time

Whilst you’re saved time cleaning, the actual time it takes to get the job done can be much longer with a robotic vacuum due to their smaller size. You could also say that your time is wasted in a way, as you might find yourself having to empty the robotic vacuum every now and then, especially if you’re cleaning a large room.

Battery-Powered

This can be an issue as the vacuum may have to recharge in order to have enough power to clean an entire room. Most robotic cleaners have around 2 hours of battery life per clean, which isn’t that much especially as a standard cleaning job can take some time.

Can’t Fully Replace Standard Vacuuming

You’re always going to have to rely on your old vacuum to clean stairs and places where your robotic vacuum simply can’t reach. In addition, it can’t guarantee a highly-effective, thorough cleaning job, so our services at Apple Clean will always provide the extra efficiency that you need to maintain a clean and healthy living space.
