Frequently Asked Questions about Robot Vacuums 2023

What Does a Robot Vacuum Cleaner Do?

A robot vacuum cleaner is your nifty little home assistant. While it might not make you a cuppa, it autonomously navigates rooms, gobbling up dirt, dust, and debris from your floors. Equipped with sensors, it deftly manoeuvres around obstacles, ensuring every nook is cleaned up. Whether you've got carpet, hardwood, or tiles, it adjusts accordingly to give your flooring the treatment it deserves. Plus, with most modern models, you can schedule cleaning sessions or control them with your smartphone. It gives your home a tidy touch every day, without the fuss of manual vacuuming. 

Which Robot Vacuum Is Worth Buying in 2023 in Australia?

Robot vacuums are progressing at a lightning-fast pace right now and there’s no shortage of great models available on the market. Selecting the ideal robot vacuum boils down to more than just brand reputation, though brands like Roborock, Ecovacs, and iRobot consistently top the charts in Australia. 

First, consider your home's layout and size. A larger home might need a vacuum with a longer battery life, while a space with varying floor types could benefit from a model with multiple cleaning modes. Next, think about specific features: Do you fancy app controls, voice command compatibility, or mop functions? Lastly, set a budget. There's a wide range in prices, and it's about finding that sweet spot between cost and features. Remember, the best buy often marries your needs with proven performance.

How Long Do Robot Vacuums Last?

A robot vacuum's lifespan can be quite impressive with a little TLC. Typically, with proper care and regular maintenance, you can expect them to run efficiently for 4-6 years. However, it's not uncommon for some high-quality models, especially when treated right, to exceed this timeframe and serve even longer. Just like any gadget, the key is in the upkeep; timely battery replacements, cleaning brushes, and ensuring the sensors are clear can go a long way. So, with a bit of diligence (or some help from your favourite robot specialist…), your trusty robot companion can keep your floors pristine for many years to come.

Should I Leave My Robot Vacuum Plugged in All the Time?

It's a common concern for robot vacuum owners: how best to maintain battery life. On average, the battery lifespan of these nifty machines is about 2-3 years before needing a replacement. As for keeping them plugged in, guidance largely hinges on the manufacturer's recommendation. Notably, leading brands like iRobot actually advise leaving the robot vacuum plugged in whenever it's not actively cleaning your home. This ensures it's always charged and ready to go. However, it's always a good idea to refer to your specific model's user manual to get the most accurate and tailored advice for optimum battery health.

Why Does My Robot Vacuum Pick Up So Much Dirt?

Surprised by the amount of dirt your robot vacuum gathers? Well, that's precisely what it's designed for – to be a meticulous cleaner! These devices are engineered with advanced sensors and algorithms to ensure they don't miss even the smallest specks of dirt. However, if you're puzzled because it seems to be picking up an excessive amount of dirt while neglecting other debris, there might be a hiccup. It's worthwhile to give its brushes and filters a thorough clean. Dirt and hair can occasionally clog these components. If you've tried troubleshooting and it's still acting a bit off, pop by with your device or give us a call. We're here to ensure your robot buddy is in tip-top shape.

Do Robot Vacuums Use a Lot of Electricity?

The good news is that robot vacuums are champions of energy efficiency. Despite their diligent cleaning prowess, they don’t guzzle up electricity as one might expect. Even if you leave them in their charging docks all day, they're designed to consume minimal power. So, while they work hard to keep your floors spick and span, they go easy on your energy bills. It's another tick in the 'win' column for these nifty household helpers, combining effective cleaning with economic power usage.

How Do I Prepare My House for a Robot Vacuum?

Prepping your home for a robot vacuum ensures it does its job efficiently and avoids any hiccups along the way. Here are some steps to get you started:

  1. Clear the Floor: Tidy up loose cables, small toys, or any potential obstacles. A clutter-free floor makes for a smoother cleaning session.
  2. Secure Fragile Items: Ensure vases, lightweight stands, or any easily toppled items are stable, just in case the vacuum gives them a nudge.
  3. Rugs and Mats: If you have lightweight or tasselled rugs, it's a good idea to secure the edges or remove them entirely to prevent snags.
  4. Set Boundaries: If there are areas off-limits, use virtual barriers or physical barriers, often provided with the robot, to define these zones.
  5. Empty Waste Bins: Before your vacuum's maiden voyage, ensure its bin is empty, and ready to collect all the dirt and debris.
  6. Check the App: If your robot vacuum comes with an app, familiarise yourself with its features. This can help in setting cleaning schedules and monitoring its progress.

With these steps, your home will be primed and ready for its new robot helper to dive into action.

Do You Need WiFi for a Robot Vacuum Cleaner?

While many modern robot vacuums come with a suite of advanced features that benefit from a WiFi connection, it's not a strict necessity for basic cleaning operations. To be specific, a 2.4ghz connection is needed at this stage, but if you have a 5ghz connection, that is still possible for many models. Most models can still embark on a full house cleaning without being connected to the internet. However, to make the most of features like remote control via a smartphone app, setting cleaning schedules, accessing video feeds, or setting up virtual boundaries, a WiFi connection becomes invaluable. In essence, while a robot vacuum can operate without WiFi, connecting it offers a richer, more interactive, and convenient cleaning experience.

Can a Robot Vacuum Replace a Normal Upright Vacuum?

Absolutely! Robot vacuums have come a long way and, for many, they've become the go-to choice for regular floor cleaning. Thanks to their advanced technology, these nifty devices can effectively handle most of the tasks traditionally reserved for their upright vacuum counterparts.

Firstly, robot vacuums are incredibly convenient. They can be scheduled to clean while you're away, ensuring you come home to fresh, dust-free floors. Their compact size also allows them to venture under furniture, places often neglected by traditional vacuums. Plus, with sensors and smart navigation, they efficiently cover every nook and cranny.

However, there might be occasions, like cleaning upholstery or a sudden spill on the staircase, where an upright vacuum could come in handy. So, while robot vacuums can essentially replace the need for daily manual vacuuming, keeping that old upright in the cupboard might still have its moments of utility. But for the lion's share of your vacuuming needs? Robot vacuums have got it covered.

Should I Run My Robot Vacuum Every Day?

Using your robot vacuum daily is a stellar idea, especially if you're keen on maintaining a pristine home environment. Running it regularly won't harm the device, though you might find yourself emptying its dustbin more frequently.

There are clear advantages to this daily cleaning regime. For households with allergy sufferers, a daily clean can keep allergens at bay, offering a breath of fresh air – quite literally! Similarly, for those sharing their space with furry friends, a daily run can effectively manage pet hair, ensuring your floors remain fluff-free.

Basically, there's no downside to letting your robot vacuum sweep your home each day. It’s all about the needs of your household, and how frequently you're willing to empty that bin.
