Robot vacuums are convenient to have around and can make life easier for us. Proper maintenance will ensure that your robot vacuum performs at its best and continues to do the job for many years to come.
Robot vacuums do their job all on their own when programmed properly. There’s no pilot to ensure that the robot vacuum doesn’t suck up something that might cause it harm. Today, we would love to tell you how to protect your Roborock vacuums with the following six simple steps and extend its lifespan.
1. Maintenance after Each Use
Once your robot vacuum has completed its rounds around your house, take a moment to do a bit of upkeep. Empty the dustbin and clean the filter to prevent loss of suction power. Check to make sure the wheels are turning freely. Inspect the robot vacuum to make sure it’s working as it should. The entire process shouldn’t take more than a minute or two, but it will protect your machine and get it ready to perform at its best when it’s needed again.
2. Replace the Filter on Time
It’s a good idea to clean your robot vacuum’s filter on a regular basis. However, that robot vacuum filter still needs to be replaced periodically. Most manufacturers recommend replacing the filter every month. Check your owner’s manual to see what is appropriate for your machine.
3. Maintain the Brushes
Make sure that you are doing regular brush maintenance. As part of your regular routine, you should check the brushes for foreign matter that might have wrapped itself around the brush cylinder. If you notice that there is an accumulation of dirt in this area, it’s time to take action.
To perform a thorough cleaning of the brushes, begin by popping them out of the robot vacuum. Take out all hair, threads, and debris that have become tangled around the brush. There are simple and inexpensive cleaning tools on the market to make this process a breeze. Alternately you can use scissors along the length of the brush to cut anything tangled in there and then simply comb the pieces out. Pop the clean brushes back into place, and your robot vacuum is ready to keep your home nice and tidy once more.
4. Deep Clean Monthly
At least once a month you should give your robot vacuums a thorough cleaning. Give the sensors a good wipe so that your robot vacuum can see where it’s going. Clean all the wheels by removing any dust and hair that might be wrapped around them. Do a thorough inspection and give the machine an overall wipe-down.
5. Avoid Extreme Temperatures
Excessive heat and cold can be harmful to the battery and other sensitive components of the robot vacuum. When choosing a location for the home base, make sure it’s well away from heating vents or areas that get a lot of sun. A garage or attic is not a good place to store your robot vacuum, as those areas generally lack the insulation to protect against extreme temperatures.
6. Use Only the Manufacturer’s Accessories
When you need to buy replacement parts, such as filters or a battery, buy from the original equipment manufacturer. It may be tempting to buy the cheaper aftermarket accessories, but these parts are not designed with your robot vacuum`s longevity in mind. Spend a bit extra and buy from the manufacturer, knowing that you are getting parts designed specifically for your device.
