Whether you own birds, cats, dogs, small animals, or any other type of pets, you know how hard it is to keep your floors clean. This is true of hard surface floors such as linoleum, laminate and hardwood as well as carpets.
Unless you have time to sweep and vacuum daily (or even more often in some instances), your floors probably show the signs of pet ownership. Pet hair, cat litter, feathers, bird seed, bedding and other debris continually accumulates on the floors of pet owners, almost regardless of their best efforts.
Robotic vacuums are convenient for anyone who has difficulty operating a regular vacuum cleaner, and they are great for anyone looking to save time on housecleaning. But they seem to be almost tailor made for pet owners - those who need daily vacuuming to keep their home clean and in some cases allergen free.
The main advantage a robotic vacuum provides pet owners is convenience. These cleaners are so advanced today, you can literally just schedule your cleaning sessions and forget about your robot. The only thing you will need to do is remember to empty the debris pan, and most robotic cleaners will remind you to do that, too!
Many people wonder if robotic vacuum cleaners are really effective, or if they're just another gadget that really isn't worth the bother. The answer is, they will do a very good but not perfect job of keeping your carpets and floors free of pet-related dust and debris.
The key is to buy a quality robot vacuum with enough power to handle your messes. The more power your robot has, advanced cleaning features and other new capabilities mean today's robots are very effective.
Robot vacuums can be set to operate any time of the day you like. When it is time to clean, they will leave their docking station fully charged, perform their cleaning duties, and return to the station to recharge themselves.
During cleaning, your robot will avoid stairs and other hazards and depending on the model, use a variety of cleaning patterns and several brushes to sweep up dirt and debris. Most robotic vacuums can slide easily under furniture such as beds and even some couches to thoroughly clean hard to reach areas.
Some robotic vacuums come with setups that enable you to create virtual walls to block off an area for cleaning. This can be very helpful if your pets are frightened or upset by your robotic vacuum. You may choose to clean your living room while your pet is confined to another part of your home for example. You can then use the robot to clean that area when you are home to supervise.
Robot cleaners will do a surprisingly good job at removing pet hair and picking up cat litter and feathers, but they do have limitations.
You will not be able to clean your stairs or furniture with a robotic cleaner, for instance, and occasionally your machine may miss an item or two. But overall, considering the time it takes to vacuum and sweep once or twice a day, pet owners are likely to find a robotic cleaner is an investment that's more than worthwhile.
