  • Suction power: The single most important factor when getting a robot vacuum cleaner for pet hair is the suction power, especially when vacuuming carpets. The suction power varies from 1200 Pa to 6000 Pa. See the robot vacuum cleaners with the highest suction power here.
  • Object recognition: Object recognition helps the robot navigate around objects and obstacles more effectively, including the pets themselves. With object recognition, the robot vacuum detects pets and others obstacle in its path and adjusts its cleaning pattern to prevent collisions.

    Pets are sometimes frightened or disturbed by the sound and movement of a robot vacuum cleaner. By ensuring that the robot doesn’t run into your pets, object recognition reduces the risk of disturbing or accidentally injuring them or damaging any objects in your home.

  • Interactive mapping: A robot vacuum cleaner with intelligent navigation (LiDAR, Camera or VSLAM navigation) lets you to create interactive maps where you can set no-go zones around areas you want it to avoid, like your pet’s food and water bowls, litter boxes and resting spots.
  • Large dustbin: If your pet sheds a lot, we recommend purchasing a robot vacuum cleaner with a large dustbin so you won’t have to empty it too often. You may also a robot vacuum cleaner with automatic dirt disposal to save you extra time and energy.
