Between the confusing features and the wildly different prices, choosing a robotic vacuum cleaner is not always an easy process.
Let Christopher from Ecovacs explain when you would and wouldn't want to buy different robotic vacuum cleaners based on your floor types, needs, and budget.
- So a question from Helen from Wichita, Kansas, and she wanted to know, I wanted to get a robotic vacuum and I'm wondering which is the right one for me?
And my answer is, don't really think about the technology, don't get caught up in the functionality.
Ask more, what are you trying to solve?
What is the problem in your house?
Is it that you're not there as often as you'd like to be to vacuum?
Or are there certain things that have happened, a new pet, a new child?
Is it winter now and dirt and dust and mud are being dragged into your home?
Kind of think about what has inspired you to buy that robotic vacuum and then think about which vacuum is best or that?
If it's really just you're looking for incremental cleaning on top of the vacuuming you already do, then the answer is, you can get a nice less expensive, you don't need the app control as much, you don't need multi-floor functionality.
If however, there's a more specific, if you have certain rooms in your house or your new baby is destroying your kitchen?
There are robotic vacuums out there today that are very good at fixating if you will on one space and cleaning it really well.
If on the other hand, you have a very complicated environment and a bigger house that you wanted to successfully navigate, you may wanna go up one more step, not only multi-function, but have mapping, which is what the latest technology in these robots do, which allow it to actually build a floor plan of your house and then be able to intelligently work its way around and clean every part of your house as best as possible.
So my advice is, think about what the problem is first and then we can help you understand which robotic vacuum is best for you.
