Ecovacs Deebot X2 Omni

If you’re looking for a thorough cleaning that can make your room spic and span, a vacuum might not just be enough. You might need the aid of a mop to remove the thicker dirt and grime that has stuck to the tiles or flooring. This is when this 2- in -1 robot vacuum mop comes in very handy.

This will change your life. You can leave and have the robot do all the dirty work. This assistant robot can navigate the entire home. Should it encounter rugs or carpets, it will stay clear away from it. 

This bad body knows when the job is done and returns itself to its docking station where it is automatically washed and dried. The dock itself is pretty sleek and you can squeeze it in the corner of a small room. Also, if you have pets, this is heaven-sent. It handles fur and hair rather well, so you can also say goodbye to allergies.

iRobot Roomba j7+

Our number one option is great for pet owners, but this is king when it comes to avoiding pet waste. This is one of the more premium and smartest robot vacuums on the list. It can easily recognize obstacles with its built-in camera and automatically reroutes itself. So you won’t have to worry about phone cords or power cables being sucked into the vacuum. 

We can vouch for how much it can avoid pet waste. The brand will give you a new one, in case any accidents involving poop happen. So this baby rarely gets stuck and rarely does. You can also do scheduled cleaning and it has a self-emptying base so keeping a tidy floor.

The caveat, however, the battery life is quite short. 

Roborock S8

The suction power of this bad boy is quite impressive for a small machine like this one. It can pick up a variety of trash, from dog hair and dander to dust and dirt, even in the most neglected areas in the room such as under the furniture. You’ll be able to have very smooth and clean floors without much effort at all, well except for buying this unit.

It has a built-in app and camera where you see the work in progress. You can access the device and instruct the robot where it should clean first. Should you need more deep cleaning, you can easily instruct this bad boy to clean the area twice. It’s like watching a series of tidying up your own home. You can also set up no-go zones and the robot will recognize it easily. So even if you are not able to watch everything via the app, you are assured it will do its job well.

Eufy 15 C

This is a budget-friendly Robovac that still has impressive suction power for its price range. Despite having a lower prowess power than the other roots in this list, you will not be able to complain given how affordable it is. If you are just starting in life and need assistance in cleaning your floors, this is a great way to start.  

Also, this bad boy has a lower profile and is much smaller. So it can easily go under most furniture and you will not be able to miss anything. It can also go over medium pile rugs and adjust the suction power according to the surface on which it is working. So it’s pretty much versatile too. 

The caveats are that because of the lower price, it lacks some of the more advanced features that can make your life the most convenient. It does not have a built-in camera and you will not be able to do mapping. So you have to close all the doors when the robot is in action to avoid any unfortunate accidents.

Bissell SpinWave Wet and Dry 

If you need more help in cleaning dirty and grimy floors, you need a vacuum and a mop. This is a workhorse and what sets it apart from the other hybrid robot vacuums on this list is that this works well with a cleaning solution. So you can squirt in your favorite antibacterial cleaner and enjoy a sweeter and cleaner-smelling home. This kind of is perfect for those germaphobes.

You can easily trade the vacuum function to the mop and it will do the dirty work for you. One thing though, is it cannot do mapping and has instances when it gets stuck in some furniture. So this works best in a room with minimal stuff. And if you have pets, this is a dream cleaner too. 

Ecovacs Deebot Ozmo T8 AIVI

This is another hybrid Ecovac robot that can make your life more sweeter. Though having lesser suction power than our other Ecovac robovac, this is king when it comes to avoiding obstacles. It can very well stay clear of anything in its path should come across toys or any furniture. If you have quite a messy room, this bad boy should suit your needs

Also, it has one of the longest battery life. So you don’t need to charge much in between. The caveat is that if you need and want a docking station where it can clean itself automatically, you need to purchase it separately. 

Eufy RoboVac G30

This is a more upgraded and premium robot that comes with modern features and even a security camera. It’s also more compact. But despite all the additional features, this has a surprisingly low profile, even lower than 3 inches. So this may be able to clean well under most furniture.

This may be one of the smallest, but it is packed with so much prowess that can clean floors efficiently with much ease at half the time. 

But it has an unimpressive and shorter battery life than what we would have liked it to be. 

Neato D10

If you’re up for some peculiar-looking vacuum, this one will top your fancies. Robot vacuums usually come around, so this one will break that norm. It has a D-shaped design that according to the brand, enables it to clean the sides of any room easily. 

Well, it did live up to the claim. Due to the shape, it easily cleans the side of every room, nooks and crannies. The longer battery life also makes it more suitable for cleaning larger rooms. It even has a HEPA filter, so this is perfect for those who have allergies and pets. 

The caveats? It’s not the most intelligent to avoid any type of obstacle in its way. So it’s best used in rooms with less clutter and furniture.

It does do mapping and you can set up no-go zones.

Wyze Robot Vacuum

This is a budget-friendly robovac that can do laser mapping. You can also program how the vacuum should navigate the house or which areas to clean out first, much like driving around using Waze in your car. It can also mop the floors as it is a hybrid unit too. 

It also is a cheaper unit with a HEPA filter, it can filter 90 to 98 percent of allergens. So it is perfect for those who have pets, it can easily pick up pet hair, fur, and dander. 

Take note though that the battery life is unimpressive. But hey for the price, you will still be happy about it.  

Deebot x1 Plus

This is a powerful vacuum that can clean with much gusto. The suction power is about 400 Pa, so it easily sucks in a lot of dirt, even in the nooks and crannies of all tight 

It also comes with an option to infuse your home with an air freshener. So this is a plus if you want a more fragrant and clean abode. You can easily spritz it with your favorite green tea scent and have an invigorating rest once you arrive from work. 

It can also go over medium-pile carpets. So despite the steeper price, you’ll get your money’s worth. 

Get that small space cleaned out while you work

Traditional vacuums have no place in small apartments. They are big and bulky. Besides being compact, robot vacuums are the next big thing when it comes to maintaining a clean home. You can easily do so without having to lift a finger. 

You just have to choose which type of robot vacuum can suit your budget and needs.

Some units can go over carpets and have more prowess. Some units have more upgraded features such as mapping, cleaning schedules, no-go zones, HEPA filters, and even pet pop avoidance. Some have more ability to avoid obstacles, making them suitable to use in messy rooms. 

Of course, most of these modern features come with a steeper price. So you have to gauge your cleaning needs versus the price of the robot vacuum. That will help you make the most economical choice.
