What is the cleaning quality of a robot vacuum cleaner?

A robot vacuum cleaner will never be a complete replacement for all the cleaning work in the house. But the better the cleaning quality is, the less often you use the regular vacuum cleaner. If you buy a robot with a basic grade cleaning quality, you buy it especially for it. You can expect high-quality robot vacuum cleaners to use the regular vacuum cleaner a lot less often.

In short

Cleaning route A systematic cleaning route ensures that the robot does not miss anything.
Middle brushes Animal hairs and larger dust clouds are thus better off the ground or the carpet.
Dirt detection Extra dirt? The robot drives an extra round. If a robot vacuum cleaner does not have this, not all dirt can be absorbed.
Side brushes Dirt in corners and along plinths is thus better absorbed.
Navigation method How does the robot scan space? The better the navigation method, the smaller the chance that the robot will skip parts.

Cleaning quality top class

High-end robot vacuum

You buy top-class robot vacuum cleaners because you really want to use the regular vacuum cleaner a lot less. A robot vacuum cleaner with top-class cleaning quality has at least 70% of the specifications from the table above. These robots are distinguished by the navigation method and dirt detection. The chance that the robot will skip parts of the house is the smallest in cleanliness in top class robot vacuum cleaners.

Cleaning quality middle class

Mid-range robot vacuum

The robot vacuum cleaners with cleaning quality middle class have at least 50% of the specifications from the above table. For example, these robots run through the house according to a systematic cleaning route, but do not contain dirt detection. A middle-class robot vacuum cleaner will not easily skip parts, but you still need the regular vacuum cleaner regularly for coarser dirt.

Cleaning quality basic class

Basic robot vacuum

Robot vacuum cleaners with cleaning quality basic class have less than 50% of the specifications from the above table. For example, these robots do not go through the house systematically, but have a random cleaning route. It is more common for these robots that parts of the house are skipped. But this is also reflected in the price. If the robot mainly needs to be able to skip the vacuuming itself once a week, basic cleaning quality is fine for you.
