If you are wondering whether you should get a robot vacuum cleaner – the answer is yes. It is the best help you can get for your cleaning chores. In the past, the models weren’t that powerful and weren’t able to properly clean the floors, however, over the last year or so, the technology has completely changed and robot vacuums have become one of the greatest assets for daily cleaning.
Our team has tested a lot of brands and different models of robot vacuums, and we are ready to present you with a list of the best ones that are worth your money.
With that being said, we still want to discuss the cons of having a robot vacuum cleaner – one being that they are not as powerful as a traditional vacuum. They are also not suitable for houses with stairs since they can’t go up and down so you would have to pick a floor to position the vacuum – maybe where the living room is situated.
It’s important to note that they are also a pricey investment so you must consider all the pros and cons and then decide whether a robot vacuum will be helpful in your household depending on the size.
The 4 Best Robot Vacuum Cleaners On The Market In 2022
– iRobot Roomba i7+
Number one on our list, of course, is iRobot Roomba i7+. This is definitely the most recognizable and popular robot vacuum cleaner – and it is priced at £799 so it will be the most expensive one on our list today.
A key feature of this machine is that it creates a map of the rooms it will be cleaning and you can add certain zones and areas that you would want it to avoid or be careful around such as around expensive furniture or your computer.
We do appreciate that it can detect the dirty areas of the room itself and double the suction power so it can pick up all of the impurities.
This machine is probably the fastest and most gentle compared to other robot vacuums – and it doesn’t hit as many obstacles as others which is a plus.
This robot comes with two rubber brushes – one for hard floors and one for carpets. If you are wondering how it performs when cleaning carpets – we think that it’s great and very careful, however, it still won’t pick up 100% of the dirt.
This Roomba empties itself in a bag in the base station which is another plus since you won’t have to empty it manually.
We also really like how quiet the machine is.
– Miele Scout RX3
Next on our list is another expensive robot vacuum – the Miele Scout RX3 which is priced at around £766. The only big difference between the Roomba and this machine that we don’t like is that the Miele one doesn’t empty itself and you have to do it manually.
There are, however, pluses to this vacuum – it is smaller, easier to use, and doesn’t require you to download any app since it has a remote.
This robot has longer and stiffer brushes compared to the Roomba which makes it better at sweeping debris.
Overall, it’s a great machine, and depending on your requirements, it might be more suitable for you than the Roomba.
– Eufy Robovac 15
We did want to include a more affordable option since the rest are quite expensive – and the Eufy Robovac 15 is exactly the robot vacuum cleaner for you if you don’t want to invest a lot of money since it is priced at £174. This machine is great for those of you that would like to give robot vacuums a try and have never used them before or for those of you that don’t have pets or kids that make huge messes.
This machine is simple, slim and fits under furniture, is quiet, and has a 100-minute run time. It has a very big dustbin – in fact, it’s bigger than the rest machines on our list. You do, however, have to empty it by hand.
Something very important about this machine is that it doesn’t have the ability to map your house. Instead, it will move until it detects a wall or an object. It can get tangled in wires, push chairs, and bump into different objects – but for the price, we do think that it’s still a great choice.
– Xiaomi Roborock S7
Last but not least on our list is Xiaomi Roborock S7 – priced at £658, which can both vacuum and mop the floors.
This machine will map your home, recognize the furniture, and even recognize when to switch from mopping to vacuuming when it’s time for cleaning the carpet.
If you like the mopping mode, we do want to recommend you never use cleaning products because they will damage the system. Instead, use only water.
It can’t be used for a thorough clean, however, it’s great in overall freshening up your home with the combination of vacuuming and mopping.
