What to look for?

  • 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 850 Pa to 8000 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. The robot vacuum cleaner with the best object avoidance performance in our test, is the Roborock S8. You can learn more about robot vacuum cleaners with object avoidance technology here.

  • 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.
  • Main brush: There is a big difference between the robots main brushes, and how much they get tangled in hair. You should go for a robot vacuum cleaner with a main brush made of rubber, as these get the least amount of hair tangled around them.

  • Noise level: The noise level of the robot vacuum cleaner is also important to consider when picking a robot vacuum cleaner, because a noisy robot may frighten your pet. There is a big difference in how noisy robot vacuum cleaners are and there is a big difference in the noise level, depending on which suction setting you choose. You can learn more about the noise level of robot vacuum cleaners here.
  • Pet setting: Some robot vacuum cleaners are equipped with a “pet-setting”, which makes the robot extra sensitive and careful if it is switched on. The disadvantage of this function is that it does not clean quite as well.
