The 10 Best Robot Vacuums For Cleaning Your Carpets
The dirty little secret of the robot vacuum industry is that most robot vacuums don’t do very well on carpet. Hardwood floors? You’re all set. A flimsy little rug? Maybe, maybe not. Carpets? Your robot just jammed and is now blooping itself.
But there are a handful of robot vacuums out there that can clean your carpets. These are the robot vacuums designed to really dig in there and complete their mission to find and eliminate dirt John Connor no matter what. And because we love you and because Skynet pays the bills, we bring you these, the best robot vacuums for carpets.
Roombas are the OGs of the robot vacuum game and in order to stave off the newer generations of robots they’ve had to continually up their game. Unfortunately, that combination of name brand and quality means that they’re often pretty expensive. This guy is probably the best combo of quality and price if you really want a Roomba. That’s because of its price and because it automatically adjusts to clean all floor types – including all your carpet.
A lot of robot vacuums claim they can clean carpet, but it’s really more like “carpet” since what they really mean is that they can clean what is called “low-pile carpet” which is a fancy industry way of saying the thinnest, flimsiest carpet imaginable. The Coredy, on the other hand, uses patented tangle-free technology which allows it to clean “medium pile carpet,” which means that it will handle just about any carpet shy of old-school shag.
This bot uses super-suction that enables it to work on all floors, which means that yeah, it’s gonna get in your carpets good, girl. Ahem. It also works with Alexa which means that you can now clean your dankest carpets just be yelling at a little cylinder. Isn’t the future great?
Why pay more for a Roomba when you get the same sort of quality for much less? Okay, okay, “name brand” matters because, well, it means that you know it works. This robot vacuum doesn’t have that name recognition, so maybe you’d be rolling the dice a little bit. But what it does have is automatic sensing that allows it to adjust to all your carpet, just like the Roomba 630, and, oh yeah, a three-year warranty that should ease your name-brand-loving mind.
This bot uses suction strength that is 80% higher than similar robot vacuums to enable it to handle all your carpeted needs. It also uses larger wheels than normal which allow it to effortlessly “climb” from surface to surface so you don’t have to worry about it getting stuck.
“Cleans anywhere” is an alluring opening phrase, but that’s exactly what this bot claims to do thanks to a combo of suction strength and a variety of roller brushes. And it will do it for a lot less than you’ll probably pay for other robot vacuums.
Another robot vacuum that uses powerful suction to handle anything up to and including your medium-pile carpets, the real breakthrough of the BoostIQ 11S is that it’s also designed to be the thinnest robot vac out there, which means that it can get underneath all your furniture with ease. There’s no hiding from this bot.
Okay, so this isn’t a traditional robot vacuum. Hell, it isn’t even really a vacuum. It’s actually more of a deep spot and stain cleaner/remover. It’s not going to zip around your home. Instead, it’s designed to stay in one place and deep clean until that sucker is as good as new. And it does it all hands-free. You just set it and let it do its thing like a, well, like a robot. Because sometimes you need something even better than “just” a vacuum.
You can tell just from the name alone that this is designed to handle more than just ordinary dirt and dust. To be honest, the company itself sums it up about as well you can when it says, “This powerful robot vacuum sports a 4X boosted suction to lift out dirt from the deepest reaches of carpet.” And there you have it.
Of course, if you want the best of the best – and that Roomba name – you’ve found it here. This monster offers 10 times the suction power of other models, which it adjusts up and down depending on how thick your carpet is. Of course, all that means that it’s also the most expensive robot vacuum out there. But all that will be worth it when you’re laying around your ultra-clean home while robot servants do all the work for you. This is the future you were promised. This is the future you deserve.
