If you want to have a cleaner home but you’re not interested in making much more of an effort to achieve that goal, perhaps you should consider buying a robot vacuum to help make your life a little bit easier. While robot vacuums still won’t replace a good deep cleaning every once in a while, they’re really fantastic for keeping your floors in good shape throughout the week. There are a lot of models out there, so here are some of the best robovacs available so you can choose which one is right for you.
Ecovacs Deebot X1 Omni
While this one is one of the most expensive robot vacuums out there, it is definitely worth the investment. It is a vacuum and mop hybrid that also empties out the dustbin on its own, washes and dries the mop cloth, and even refills its own water tank. Talk about hands off. You can also use it as a moving home security camera with audio that goes two ways and it has its own voice assistant named Yiko, so you can implement voice control.
iRobot Roomba j7+
There’s a reason why everyone knows the name Roomba. The j7+ is a great upgraded version of iRobot’s classic product that incorporates a built in camera that helps it avoid obstacles like power cables and cords, shoes, clothes, pet waste, and more, thanks to crowdsourced images from users all over who agreed to add to the database and improve its capabilities. This is another great vacuum-mop hybrid option.
Shark IQ Robot Self-Empty XL RV1001AE
This option rom Shark is great because it has a unique approach to self-emptying. It has two dustbins, one is the robot and one in the base station that has to be emptied just once a month. That way, the robot empties itself into the larger base and you only have to worry about it every once in a while. It also is bagless, so you won’t have to replace bags.
Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra
Yet another hybrid option, the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra empties its own dustbin, washes its mopping cloth, and refills its water tank. Best of all, it has very powerful suction that will leave your floor sparkling clean with minimal effort.
Bissell SpinWave Wet and Dry Vacuum
The Bisell SpinWave Wet and Dry Vacuum is quiet and efficient, and is great at picking up dust and pet hair on low pile carpets and hardwood floors. Using its dual spinning mop pads, it’s great at scrubbing floors when the dust bin is swapped with the wet tank. It’s a great budget-friendly option that’s still a wet and dry hybrid.
