The Roborock S8+ robot vacuum

With the advancements in technology, it's easier than ever to keep our homes spotless. Robot vacuum cleaners are an amazing tool that can save you time, effort and make your cleaning routine much more efficient. However, it's important to understand what a robot vacuum cleaner can and cannot do in order to get the most out of it. In this guide, we'll go through everything you need to know about cleaning with a robot vacuum cleaner.

What You Can Clean Up with a Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Small debris and dirt:

The main purpose of a robot vacuum cleaner is to pick up small debris and dirt, like pet hair, crumbs, and other small particles from your floors. The vacuum cleaner's brushes and suction power help pick up these particles and deposit them in the dustbin for easy disposal. The Roborock S8has a suction power of 6000 p.a which sucks up even the smallest particles effortlessly.

Carpets:

Robot vacuum cleaners are designed to work on different types of flooring, including carpets. The vacuum cleaner will adjust its height accordingly to ensure it's not too close or too far from the carpet, allowing it to pick up dirt and debris from the carpet fibers. Roborock S8’sall new dual rubber brushes enhance vacuuming and ensures fewer hair tangles.

Hard floors:

Hard floors, such as tile, laminate, and hardwood, can also be cleaned by a robot vacuum cleaner. The robot cleaner's brushes will help pick up dirt and debris, while the suction power ensures that it's removed from the floor surface.

Under furniture:

With its compact design and low profile, a robot vacuum cleaner can easily clean under furniture that you may have trouble reaching with a traditional vacuum cleaner. The Roborock S8’s3D Obstacle Avoidance System helps it navigate around furniture, in both bright and dark rooms.

    What You Cannot Clean Up with a Robot Vacuum Cleaner

    1. Large debris: While a robot vacuum cleaner can pick up small debris and dirt, it's not designed to pick up larger debris, such as toys or clothing. If you have larger debris on your floors, it's best to pick it up before running your robot vacuum cleaner.
    2. Stairs: Robot vacuum cleaners are designed to clean flat surfaces, and their low profile can make it difficult for them to clean stairs. If you need to clean stairs, it's best to use a hand-held vacuum.
    3. Spills: If you have spills on your floor, it's best to clean them up before running your robot vacuum cleaner. The vacuum cleaner's brushes can spread spills, making the mess even bigger, and the vacuum cleaner itself could become damaged by the spill.
