ROBOT VACUUM CLEANERS: WHAT TO LOOK FOR -- II
Robot vacuum cleaners offer the advantage of mobility. Designed to be small and compact, they can get into tight spaces
that upright vacuums are not able to clean unless you use a vacuum hose and attachment.
Most robot vacuums stand only 4 inches tall or shorter, meaning they can easily slide under beds and couches to get to
those hard-to-reach spaces. To prevent your robot from causing any counterproductive scuff marks as it
vacuums, good-quality models feature soft rubber bumpers that will protect floorboards and furniture.
Warranty & Support
All of the robot vacuum cleaners we reviewed come with a one-year warranty. Keep in mind that robotic vacuum cleaners
are not as durable as standard vacuum cleaners. So, if you buy an expensive machine, you might want to purchase an extended warranty.
Customer support makes a difference in your experience with your vacuum. The best manufacturers offer support via toll-free phone numbers, as well as help from user manuals, email support and FAQs.
While robot vacuum cleaners cannot substitute the type of cleaning you get with traditional vacuum cleaners, these little helpers
are great for maintenance cleaning. Thanks to your robot, your cleaning load will be lightened considerably and your house will
look good even on the most hectic days.
