Do you enjoy housework and chores? There aren’t many of us who do, which is why advances in technology are here to make our lives that much easier by introducing innovate concepts that let robots do the work so that we don’t have to. It may sound like a futuristic concept but there are a number of ways in which robotic cleaners can used throughout the home so that we don’t have to lift a finger. Below are just some of the household chores that you can now assign to robots.
Vacuuming the carpet
The most popular household robot currently on the market is the robot vacuum. If you’re tired of hoovering up after pets or messy kids, this automated hoover could be the perfect purchase. These robots take the form of a disc on wheels and they’re able to zoom around the floor picking up any debris in their path, using sensors to detect objects before changing direction. There are many different models of robot vacuum on the market, some are super-quiet, some have a really long charge and some even have in-built mop functions for cleaning hard floors. It’s worth taking the time to shop around to find the best model for you and your floors.
Mowing the lawn
Do you find cutting the grass to be a chore? Why not get yourself a robot that mow your lawn for you while you relax outdoors with a drink and a book? These robots take the back-breaking work out of mowing the lawn by independently moving around the garden and like their vacuum counterparts, robot lawnmowers are able to detect the perimeters of your lawn and change direction accordingly. There are similarly many models of automated mowers including some that are able to take on moderately steep inclines and some that are able to cut your grass automatically at specific hours before returning to their charging station. It doesn’t get more useful than that!
You might be pleased to discover that you can also buy robots to clean your windows, saving you having to undertake the arduous task. These robots use motorised suction pads to attach to your window and are able to independently move around the pane cleaning the glass, all you have to do is simply fill them up with water and solution and they do the rest for you. These could be a great purchase for keeping clean large glass sliding or bi-fold doors or cleaning conservatory windows. A variety of models can be found on the market so have a good look around and find the one that works for you.
Scrubbing the pool
One of the biggest drawbacks to owning a swimming pool is having to regularly maintain it. Robot pool cleaners can take the work out of having to clean your pool by doing it for you, giving you more time to actually enjoy the feature. These robots are able to operate underwater, independently scrubbing away algae and tough stains from the bottom and sides of your pool and there are already quite a few different models out there to choose from.
Cooking meals (and washing up!)
Ready to take home robotics to the next level? This may seem like something out of a sci-fi film, but you can in fact now buy a robotic kitchen that is able to prepare and cook meals for you – and clean up after itself! The robot uses mechanical ‘hands’ to fetch ingredients, adjust hob temperature, fill pans, mix up food and plate up. It’s like having a personal chef in your own home, if you trust it that is, but if you do it could be the perfect luxury investment if you hate cooking and the tidying up that goes with it.
