Don’t ask me why, but for years cartoons led me to believe that the future was going to be all hover-boards and robot vacuum cleaners. And while hover-boards are yet to successfully happen, (ahem Elon, hello?! You there?!), robo vacuums have surprisingly advanced quite quickly.
Robot vacuums are super appealing because of the minimal effort required by their owners. After a few uses, these little cordless machines learn their way around your home using sensors and cameras to pick up all the surface level dirt and dust. You’ll have to be patient with it though, they tend to ‘feel’ their way around the room by bumping into walls and furniture, so it may take a few goes before your robo vacuum properly learns the layout of your room.
You can now find robot vacuums at every price point thanks to Amazon Prime Day, some robot vacuums are even up to $300 off. Each robot vacuum comes with a variety of advanced features like room mapping capabilities, self-emptying bins, cameras, AND some even mop, too! Sadly, you can’t avoid vacuuming forever though, especially if your home’s mostly carpeted. Robot vacuum cleaners simply don’t have the same kind of suction power as a standard stick, barrel or upright vacuum, so while the carpet might look clean on the surface, it’s still recommended you give it a proper vacuum for a deeper clean on the reg.
That said, they are excellent for picking up a reasonable amount of surface fluff, so if you’ve got a pet (or a rug) that sheds like a demon, it could be a worthwhile investment so you don’t feel shit under your feet every day. Yuck!
To get the most out of your robo vacuum cleaning, you’ll need to clean the filters, dust bins and brushes regularly so it stays as hygienic and effective as possible.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up a range of robo vacuums that are currently on sale during Amazon Prime Day, so you can find your new little house helper.
