The Holiday’s are here and Robotic vacuums sell a great deal at this time. The are cute and conversational. It’s not like getting a real vacuum for Christmas right? Here are a few things you should consider because they are not inexpensive. They are best for bare floors. The brush underneath is a very soft brush. They are surface cleaners on rugs and do not take the place a a full powered vacuum. You should still use your full size vac between the robotics cleanings. The biggest concern for you to consider is that these companies do not put parts out for there machines except Miele. Unless your purchase a Miele robotic that means no service, batteries, chargers, testing, parts of any kind are available. This is the choice of the companies that manufacture them not ours. Unless you purchase a German Miele. Then you will be happy because you will have after purchase service that you do not have to send away to a company for.
