Robot vacuums are becoming increasingly popular due to their convenience and functionality. However, it is important to keep in mind that robot vacuums are intended for maintenance cleaning only and are not a substitute for regular deep cleaning using tools like an upright vacuum.

Below we explain some key features of . We then move on to the important specifications of the .

Floor Type - most robot vacuums are designed for bare floors (hardwood and tile) and low-pile carpets, but some also can clean high-pile carpets

Carpet Height Adjustment - the ability to raise and lower the vacuum mechanism to accommodate carpet of various heights and bare floors such as hardwood or tile

Height - the height of the robot vacuum; this is important to make sure the robot vacuum can fit under your furniture and other tight spaces

Battery Runtime - the runtime of the robot vacuum before a recharge is necessary; larger spaces may require a longer runtime

Automatically Recharges - whether the robot vacuum will automatically return to the charging stand/station and recharge itself between vacuuming sessions

Drop Protection - whether the robot vacuum will automatically detect stairs and other drop-offs

Cleaning Mechanism - the type of brushes used by the robot vacuum; most include a combination of side/edge brushes and roller brushes

Pet Hair - whether the robot vacuum can effectively pick up pet hair

HEPA Filter - HEPA filters in robot vacuums trap smaller particles and allergens than non-HEPA filters, so HEPA filters are preferred

Washable Filter - whether the filter media can be washed; most robot vacuums include multiple filter media, and usually only a subset of the filter media can be washed if at any (e.g., the foam or sponge filters, but not the accordion filters)

Mop - whether the robot vacuum includes a mop attachment

Smartphone Remote Control - the ability to control the robot vacuum using a smartphone
