Frequently Asked Questions

How do you keep your robot vacuum from falling down the stairs?

Robot vacuums can do many things, but they still need a little helping hand when it comes to staircases. Luckily, you don't have to worry about it taking a tumble anymore. Robot vacuums can be programmed with virtual walls they cannot cross. Their multiple sensors will prevent the appliance from falling.

How much does a robot vacuum cleaner cost?

On the lower end of the price spectrum, you can get a robot vacuum cleaner for about $150, but it might not be WiFi enabled. The most expensive robots sell for about $1000, and for that price you will get all the bells and whistles. Just remember that more expensive doens't always mean better performing. It all depends on your household needs.

Are robot vacuum cleaners worth the money?

Robot vacuums are definitely worth the money. Although they can't fully replace a regular vacuum cleaner at the moment, they can take a large work load off your shoulders if you have larger spaces to clean or if you are a pet owner.

How much dust can a robot vacuum hold?

No matter the model of robot vacuum you buy and no matter the price, the basic dust capacity is rather low. You will need to empty it more frequently than your regular vacuum cleaner. The most sophisticated models do have a self-emptying feature, which enables them to empty themselves into a larger bin at the docking station.
