Robotic Vacuum Buyers Guide

Robotic vacuum buyers guide gives insight into robotic vacuum cleaners reviewed elsewhere on this site. Also, use  robotic vacuum frequently asked questions to help find the best.


First and foremost, if allergens are a concern, verify how effectively the robotic vacuum can suck up allergens.

Dust Bin Capacity

Second, the capacity of the dust bin is important, because that capacity will dictate how frequently you have to be actively engaged  to first empty the dust bin and then put it back into the vacuum cleaner. Therefore, the larger the dust bin, the less often you will have to get engaged.

Edge and Corner Performance

Third, one of the hardest places to vacuum is along walls and corners. So, look into how effectively the robotic vacuum can suck up dust and dirt along edges of walls and corners.

Floor Type

Next, the floor type will determine the robotic vacuum best suitable for your needs. For example, some robotic vacuums are not recommended for high-pile carpets or even medium-pile carpets. Also, some robotic vacuums do not work on dark floors.

Management Method

Now, there are three possible ways to manage this robotic vacuum. The choice of which one is best depends on your individual needs and preferences.

Alexa or Google Assistant voice commands


Another aspect to consider is the power of the vacuum's suction. In fact, this is measured in centimeters or inches of water lifted or in pascals (Pa). This is the maximum difference in pressure that a vacuum cleaner can create. Moreover, the stronger the suction, the more effectively dust, dirt, and debris gets picked up from the floor and into the dust bin. Needless to say, the stronger the better.


Fiinally, a warranty helps with peace of mind once you’ve made the purchase. By the way, all the robotic vacuums reviews here offer a 1-year warranty.
