Are you tired of crouching around the house, tripping over cords, and constantly bumping into furniture?
Not to worry, robotic vacuum cleaners are here to save the day. In this article, I’ll take you through a simple process to teach you how to use and program your new robotic vacuum cleaner.
Step 1: Name your robotic vacuum cleaner
Before you get started with the technical part, give your new robotic vacuum cleaner a name. After all, it’s going to be your new cleaning buddy! Get creative!
Step 2: Charge it up
Your robotic vacuum cleaner is going to need some ‘juice’ before it can start sucking up all that dirt and waste. Plug it in and let it charge for a few hours depending on the advice given in the manual.
While you’re waiting, you can do some yoga or watch cat videos on TikTok. Hopefully, they succeed in making you want a cat.
Step 3: Give it a test run
Once your robotic vacuum cleaner is fully charged, it’s time to give it a test run. This is the fun part! Sit back and watch as it whizzes around your living room, bumping slightly into walls and furniture like a clumsy kitten. Don’t worry, it’ll get the hang of it eventually.
Step 4: Set up the boundaries
If you don’t want your robotic vacuum cleaner to suck up your pet’s food or get stuck under the couch, you’ll need to set up some boundaries.
Most robotic vacuum cleaners come with virtual walls or magnetic strips that you can place around your home to set up the no-go areas. As long as your cleaning buddy can detect magnetic strips, all you need to do is set it up in the right places.
Step 5: Program a cleaning schedule
One of the best things about robotic vacuum cleaners is that you can program them to clean your home on a schedule. Set up the cleaning schedule and you can sit back and relax while it does all the hard work.
Just make sure you don’t accidentally program it to clean at 3 am unless you want to wake up to a vacuum cleaner roaming around your room.
Step 6: Get creative with the accessories
Although this is optional, you can still try out accessorising your robotic vacuum cleaner. You can attach a dusting cloth to its underside to give your floors an extra shiny finish. Or, you can attach a tiny hat and sunglasses to make it look like a hipster vacuum cleaner. The creative ideas you could come up with are endless!
Step 7: Maintain It
You now know how to use and program your robotic vacuum cleaner. So, sit back, relax, and let it do the dirty work. Just don’t forget to keep it in good condition and make sure it is doing perfectly fine.
