Manually cleaning a house can take hours of labor and hiring a professional can be expensive. Even with all the effort, manual cleaning may not be as thorough when done by a human. Having robotic cleaning tools can make a house cleaner and life easier for those who hate to clean.
The Top 5 Robotic Cleaners Available Today
The future of cleaning is already here. While robotic cleaners have existed for years, they have not only improved, but are also now affordable.
The Automatic Litter Box
Cats that are kept indoors have a less likely chance of catching diseases or getting wounded. Many cat owners prefer indoor cats because they live in apartments or urban areas that are not conducive for outdoor pets. Unfortunately, indoor cats require litter boxes. Instead of using a handheld scoop to get rid of pet waste, having a robot clean the litter for you is much more sanitary.
Catolet is a device that works as a conveyor system. This robot is able to remove the waste and clean itself afterward to keep the process as clean as possible. By connecting the automatic litter tray to the water supply and sewage, cats can use the litter whenever they like without leaving anything behind. A plumber is not necessary for installation and the robotic litter device can be easily hooked up to a toilet or washing machine. This hygienic invention has saved many cat owners from the constant morning headache of emptying litter.
The Food Cycler
Composting can be a hassle. Collecting leaves, finding large containers and dealing with garbage bags can be a pain. For an eco friendly way to recycle food, the food cycler can make composting much easier by automating the process.
By placing extra food scraps into the automatic recycler, you can create rich soil additive in an efficient way. For those who don’t have time to maintain a compost pile in the yard or who don’t live in a rural area, this can be especially useful. In approximately three hours, the food recycler can reduce food scraps up to 90 percent. Using an automatic composting robot can eliminate odor while simultaneously breaking down food.
The Grill Bot
Cleaning a grill after every use is recommended, but rarely followed. It can be difficult to find the right products to fully sanitize a grill and a thorough cleaning takes time. By using a robot, grills can be cleaned in approximately thirty minutes or less.
The Grillbot uses a lithium-ion battery that can be easily recharged. There are no wires or cords required for use. This robot uses removable brushes that can be cleaned in the dishwasher without breaking or dulling the bristles. The robot thoroughly cleans the top of the grate without any needless scraping.
Cleaning the gutters is not always something homeowners think about when they move in. Without a thorough cleaning, gutters can become clogged and do potential damage if rainwater can’t drain properly. Using a “Looj” can help effectively clean gutters so no dangerous ladders are necessary.
By placing a Looj on one end of the gutter, it can slide through while sweeping leaves and debris out of the way. Dirt detectors can tell this robot when to slow down where extra cleaning is needed. A handheld control device is optional, but it can run automatically. This device is perfect for those who are afraid of heights or who just don’t like the idea of scooping out potentially wet leaves from their gutters on a regular basis.
The Automatic Mop
The Braava Jet is an automatic mopping robot that can also sweep floors. Instead of using buckets and towels to manually hand wash the floor, this device can clean your floors with just as much precision and care.
With three cleaning modes, the Braava Jet can mop, sweep and dry sweep depending on the type of floor grime or dirt. The mechanics of it are simple. First it sprays the floor from the front of the device and then is swept afterward to ensure the area is clean. The only real effort required when using an automatic mop is changing the mop head, which is a relatively easy task.
Cleaning robots have come a long way. Since the invention of the original vacuum cleaner, there have been many updates. While the Roomba, or similar floor vacuums have dominated the public’s imagination of robot cleaners, there are many available for purchase. The cost has considerably dropped for many cleaning robots since most devices are digital and do not require completely new technology.
Cleaning can take up an entire day depending on the living quarters. When sanitizing is especially important, a thorough cleaning is sometimes best left to the professionals. Thankfully with the passing of time and cheaper technology, the advancement of household robots is an option for everyone.
