Referring to smart home appliances that help liberate human labor, it is impossible not to mention robot vacuum cleaners.
In terms of operating principle, the robot vacuum cleaner is pre-programmed and automatically vacuums. The device will laser scan the entire space to create an activity map, then based on the map, quickly design a suitable travel route and clean it in the most effective way.

Despite its convenience, robot vacuum cleaners still have limitations that make some users feel unsatisfied. If you’re planning on adding this device to your home, consider whether these limitations are too worrisome for your family’s needs.
Poor performance in some cases
Robot vacuum cleaners often have a circular design, making it difficult to reach corners, or hidden areas in the house. These are the places where the most dust accumulates.
Analyze real user experience, CHOICE – The Australian nonprofit says the robot vacuum works well on hard floors (87%), but is noticeably less effective when cleaning carpets (34%), corners (62%) and hair pets (55%). Robot vacuum cleaner can clean the carpet surface, but hidden deep inside still contains a lot of dirt.

The floor is cluttered and has many objects such as shoes, children’s toys… also reduce the cleaning ability of the device. At this time, the robot vacuum cleaner will constantly collide with obstacles, leading to the limited ability to change direction and go deep into hidden corners.
Cleaning takes time
Because it is automatically programmed by AI technology, the robot vacuum cleaner will need a certain amount of time to design a map, choose a direction and avoid obstacles when cleaning the house.
In addition, the robot vacuum cleaner does not have the ability to move flexibly between floors, only overcoming obstacles with a height of about 1.2 – 2 cm. To clean other floors, you have to manually move the robot and wait for the robot to create a map from scratch.
The relatively small dust box of the robot vacuum cleaner makes it difficult for you to change it constantly. (Illustration)
That’s not to mention the relatively small dust box size. Therefore, compared with conventional vacuum cleaners, robot vacuum cleaners need 2-3 times more time, while the cleaning area can be similar.
Problems with internal components
The battery capacity of the robot vacuum cleaner is considered to be quite short, only used for about 75 minutes. The time for the battery to be fully charged for each type of robot vacuum is different depending on the manufacturer, however, on average it is up to 6 – 8 hours.

Some parts such as sensors, fans may wear out after 1 year of use. The broken fan of the robot vacuum cleaner will also reduce the ability to clean, leading to a series of features such as obstacle detection, map setting, etc., which do not work.
In addition, components such as dust collectors, air filters, and brushes also need to be changed periodically. Therefore, the internal components and settings of the robot vacuum cleaner cause you and your family to incur a cost for maintenance activities.
Currently on the market, the price of robot vacuum cleaners ranges from 5,000,000 to 10,000,000 VND. This is considered a rather high price. So before deciding to buy a device, you should spend time researching to make sure buying a robot vacuum cleaner is necessary and meets the needs of your family.
