Cleaning your floors can be tiring and painful. With a mop, you have to fill buckets with water and floor cleaner. With a vacuum, you have to lug it around, and carry it up and down the stairs. Even though vacuums are more efficient than the first handcrank operated ones in 1866, they are still cumbersome. And you have no choice but to vacuum areas like your living room since it receives a high amount of foot traffic. In fact, ABC news recommends that you clean these kinds of areas every day. So, it is no surprise that almost 100% of households in America have a vacuum cleaner; it is the best way to keep your living room and kitchen floors clean.
The good news is that there is a hands-off, relaxing solution to dirty floors, and all you have to do is sit back and watch. Several retailers now sell robot vacuum cleaners and floor cleaners. These small devices can be programmed to circulate your living room, bedroom or kitchen on their own, cleaning the floor along the way. They are constructed with built-in sensors that detect their surroundings, and turn once the reach a wall or a large object in the middle of the floor. Because of their shape and size, these vacuums can fit in small areas that a regular vacuum cannot, and their brushes can bend to clean hard to reach crevices.
Most brands, such as the Samsung robot vacuum and the iRobot Roomba, come with the ability to program the device to clean when you want it to. If you are home during the day and you do not want the vacuum to get in your way, you can program it to run at night. The robot vacuum can also clean other types of flooring such as linoleum, vinyl, and hardwoods. The same type of programing can also be applied to the iRobot Scooba, which can scrub your floors for you. Whether you use a Samsung robot vacuum, or an iRobot Roomba, they are both battery operated. Most of these batteries will give you about 100 hours of running time, and once the battery is low, the vacuum will dock itself to recharge so you do not have to worry about it. Once it is ready, it heads out again to do the work.
If you have any difficulty moving around, carrying things, or cleaning in your house, a robot vacuum would be the ideal device for you. It is highly self-sufficient and cleans thoroughly. But do not get rid of your regular vacuum just yet. A robot vacuum cannot always reach into thick carpets well, and experts recommend that you continue to use your own vacuum once in a while to get a deep cleaning. Even still, a Samsung robot vacuum or an iRobot vacuum can give the break you need from pushing around a heavy vacuum every day.
