It can be quite daunting to finish a full day of work and then have to face cleaning up a whole house. Luckily, robot vacuums can help quite a lot, and while they won’t be able to organize your closets and cupboards or put things away, they can help keep the floors clean. There are many types of robot vacuums you can pick, from budget-oriented ones that do the basics to fancier double units that can both vacuum and mop. There are a lot of great deals on them, so you can find something solid without breaking the bank.
While a lot of folks may think of the Roomba when they think about robot vacuums, Shark is just as good a brand, and it actually makes some relatively well-priced products. That means you can get a bit better at the same price if you go with a Shark robot vacuum instead of a Roomba one. That said, the higher in price you go, the less difference you’ll see in terms of bang for your buck,

On the other hand, if you’d prefer to go with the brand you’re more familiar with, then there are a lot of great deals for Roomba robot vacuums, too. There’s also a wider selection of robot vacuums, so you can really pick the features you want for the budget you have, rather than feeling like you’re missing out or have to add extra money to get what you really want.

Probably one of the most important things to consider when it comes to Robot Vacuums is what sort of floor you will be using them on. While most modern robot vacuums are generally okay to be used on many different surfaces, it’s always good to check, especially if you have a lot of carpets or hardwood floors; you wouldn’t want to damage either of them. Similarly, if you have pets or long hair that sheds a lot, then you need to go for a vacuum that can handle hair because those that don’t could easily get tangled, and then you have to deal with that mess.
Another thing worth considering is whether you want it to be a self-emptying type or not. While it is much more convenient and will let you go 30-90 days, depending on capacity, without emptying it, self-emptying robot vacuums are considerably more expensive. Speaking of cost, you should also consider whether you want a vacuum that can both mop and dust, or maybe even going with a bundled set that includes a robot vacuum and a robot mop, which will make life a lot easier but will cost much, much more.
