We all want to find ways to save time, and with more and more “intelligent” technology - it was just a matter of time before the dreaded chore of vacuuming joined the club. A robot vacuum cleaner was once thought of as a futuristic prototype but is more and more commonly becoming an accepted member of the closet of household tools. But are they really worth the investment?
Arguably, the convenience of robotic vacuum cleaners require wonderfully little effort. Just set it up and forget it. They can be programmed to clean on a schedule in specific rooms at specific times and you don’t even have to push the start button - saving you time and effort vs. a traditional vacuum cleaner. They get to hard to reach spaces, under tables and counters eliminating the need to move furniture or even get off the couch.
But the downside needs to be considered as well. The battery life for robotic vacuum cleaners are not long and require a lot of energy to be charged for hours and if you have larger rooms, the cleaning could take hours to complete and could stop midway through. They are easily clogged up by objects like paper, string, pennies or buttons - requiring you to walk around each room first to look for these objects every day, and it can’t do your stairs.
You’ll definitely want to carefully research the brand and reviews should you choose to purchase a robotic vacuum and keep up on your routine scheduled cleanings from Gator Clean. If we can answer any questions you might have in deciding on a robotic or upright vacuum, give us a call today.
