Robot vacuums for pet hairs

As the owner of a four-legged friend, you know that having pets equals flying animal hairs. Regular vacuuming is therefore inevitable. If you want to do this less often yourself, then a robot vacuum cleaner is recommended. Before you buy the first robot vacuum cleaner that you come across, it is good to know what it must meet to vacuum up pet hair.

Center brush

Because animal hairs are generally fairly stiff, the robot must have rotating center brushes. These are brushes that are located in the nozzle of the robot vacuum cleaner. These pick up coarse dirt and animal hair from the ground better and ensure that this dirt does not block the nozzle. In addition, these brushes also prevent the hairs from tangling and the robot is not sucking them up.

Mopping methods

Dry

A robot vacuum cleaner mops dry when it only uses a microfiber cloth. Then no water or soap is involved. In principle, the robot vacuum cleaner therefore pulls a dry cloth over the ground. With this he picks up the fine dust that the brushes leave behind.

Wet without water reservoir

If the robot vacuum cleaner does not contain a water reservoir but does have a mop function, a thick microfiber cloth will be added to the robot that will make you wet with water or soapy water. You click it on the bottom of the robot. It is necessary to rinse this mop once in a while.

Wet with water reservoir

These robotic vacuum cleaners contain a water reservoir, whereby the mop is constantly made wet. It is therefore not necessary to make the mop wet again and again. You decide whether you only put water in this reservoir or a little soapy water. If you do not fill this water reservoir, the robot will only suck the floor without mopping it.

Allergies

Allergie en een robotstofzuiger

Are you or someone else in the house susceptible to dust or do the little animal hairs tickle your nose? Then a robot vacuum cleaner with a filter is a good choice for you. A HEPA 13 filter or higher ensures that even the small dust particles and animal hairs remain in the dust bin. This way they do not return to the room with the exhaust air. That is going to bother us.

Furniture, steps and the car

"The regular vacuum cleaner can actually leave the house." No, that doesn't apply. Your pet may regularly jump in the trunk of the car or sneak a nap on your favorite seat. The robot vacuum cleaner is not added here, so you still need the sledge vacuum cleaner regularly.
