This robot vacuum gets, like…most of the dirt (and dust and hair).
It doesn’t climb up on your mantle and clean between the random decorative nonsense you have sitting there. It doesn’t move the weird end table out of the way to get the dust bunnies that collect next to the wad of cords that makes all of the TV things work.
But like we said, it gets most of it.
It gets enough of it that it’ll take the edge off of your regular cleaning routine by having the floors in passable shape basically all the time. It gets enough of it that the air will be cleaner and smell better because this little fella is sucking up a sizable amount of ick every time it runs. It gets enough that even if you rarely do anything to clean, your floors will always look like they’re taken care of by a functioning adult.
And that, friends, is the name of the game when it comes to robot vacuums. We don’t have Rosie the Robot from “The Jetsons,” but we do have a little circle that will buzz around your house and keep up with most of the ick that somehow accumulates on our floors. It won’t sass you like Rosie, but it will get the job done.
Sass or no sass, you really need something that can put like 90 percent of your floor cleaning on autopilot. It’s the 21st century, people! Make it happen.
(And once your floors are sorted, maybe do something about the persistent funkiness in the air while you’re at it….)
