I fantasise about pushing a button on my robot vacuum and going to bed at night so that I can wake up to a clean house. I’d love to know your experiences of them and which brands you would recommend/avoid at all costs. Is it worth the money? Do they actually work? Is my fantasy just that – a fantasy? Thank you.

  • id love to hire one and test it out

  • I find the answers really interesting! good question!

  • so my mate has one expensive model and it gets stuck on edges of tiles and carpet. it also doesn’t do corners or right up to furniture.

    of course it’s just there to help the majority of the floor seem clean

  • I don’t think they are!! Really!!

  • We have a cheap one from Godferys and it is awesome, I cannot imagine how great the super pricey ones are! I still do a through clean a few times a week with the normal vacuum but its great for the in between times, and picks up a surprising amount of very fine dust!

  • We have a very cheap one and I never thought I would love it as much as I do! they are great! when this one finally dies I am upgrading for sure!

  • they are great for general tidiness but if you have carpets youll still need a good vacuum to remove all the dirt and dust from the deep

  • I am not sure they work brilliant on all carpets either though

  • ours became a ride on for my daughters toys

  • maybe look for one with a money back guarantee so that you can return it if you are not happy with it

  • if you get a good one, they can save you time and keep your floors clean

  • my worst chore, keeping an eye on this as I really cant stand it

  • I’ll keep an eye on this post as I wonder the same thing

  • I am thinking to buy robot vacuums too. Will help me more easier.

  • i find there claims to be too much, how much can that little container hold, my big machine clgs up pretty quick with cat fur.
