Photo Credit:, vacuuming and sweeping your floors can be a hassle, especially over the holiday season as you get more foot traffic – which means more stains – all over your household flooring. If you’re looking for a hands-free option when it comes tomaintaining your floors, consider getting a robotic cleaning device. These battery powered devices roam around your home sucking up dirt and mopping up spills without the need for supervision.

$400- $500 | iRobot Roomba 770
iRobot’s Roomba series is now celebrating its 10th anniversary, so it’s safe to say they’ve become the experts when it comes to robotic floor cleaners. Their 700 series, specifically the 770, can clean carpet, hardwood, tile and linoleum floors. The vacuum self-adjusts to clean the different type of flooring throughout your entire home. It can even clean under furniture and will alert you when it’s time to empty its dust and dirt bin.

$300- $400 | Neato XV Signature Pro
This high-tech vacuum is available for under $400 at Walmart, Best Buy and on Amazon. This laser-navigated cleaner automatically goes room to room cleaning even the smallest nooks and crannies. If its battery is running low it will automatically go to its charging base and then return to its previous cleaning location when the battery is full. This vacuum is a great option for those with pets because of its superb filters which remover allergens from the flooring and air.

$200- $300 | iRobot Roomba 530
Yes, another Roomba vacuum. This vacuum is much simpler than the 770 but for this price point it is very efficient. The 530 only has three buttons: clean, dock and spot clean and can cover all different types of flooring. This lower model doesn’t have some of the convenient automatic perks of the 770 (automatic charging and full bin notifications to name a few) or a HEPA air filter but it still picks up most pet dander and dust and leaves floors clean.

Under $200 | Moneual MR6550 Rydis Hybrid Robot Vacuum and Dry Mop Cleaner
While the robo-vacuums under $200 are still going to suck up dirt and dust, they might pale in comparison to the techy gadgets listed above. However, for the most bang for your buck get this Moneual model. This robotic helper can vacuum carpeted areas and dry mop non-carpeted flooring like hardwood or laminate with just the touch of a button.

These smart robot vacuums can provide the help you need this holiday season. Put away the mop and bucket, store that broom and dustpan, and enlist the help of modern technology so that you can spend your time doing the things that matter.
