It’s a joy to be able to spend more time in your beautiful home, however this can also mean you have to spend more time cleaning it.

As Dyson engineer James Carswell points out, “People spend on average 25 minutes a day cleaning, which adds up to 65 hours every year. Sometimes we all miss spots as well – even I must admit I don’t vacuum under my sofa every week!”

Luckily, cutting-edge robot vacuum cleaners like the Dyson 360 Vis Nav™ robot vacuum have been developed to consider the needs of the modern home and family, so you can spend less time on housework and more time relaxing and appreciating the comfort of home.

Watch our Q&A with the design experts in the video above.

Here are four ways a robot vacuum cleaner can save you time:

1. You can program it to give you a customised clean

A robot vacuum cleaner like the Dyson 360 Vis Nav™ can be programmed to clean your floors autonomously. You can even customise the areas of your home to be cleaned, how often you want them to be cleaned and when by setting times, days and the power mode your robot uses so you can get the perfect clean to suit your home.

2. You can multitask without the stress

By removing manual vacuuming from your to-do list, you can focus on other things you need to do while your vacuum is working its magic. Maybe you have other important work to get done, need to spend time with your kids, or need to relax (a true need!). With a robot vacuum cleaner, you can make the most of your day while the robot takes care of the floors.

3. You don’t have to go back to clean spots you missed

The Dyson 360 Vis Nav™ automatically cleans edges and corners and can detect and remove microscopic particles. In Auto mode, the sensor can monitor dust particles 15,000 times a second and automatically increase suction power when needed. As well as keeping your floors squeaky clean, this saves you time as you don’t have to go back to re-do missed spots.

4. You can recharge while it does the hard work

You are only human and can only clean for so long. Your robot vacuum can work continuously, cleaning for extended periods without needing a break, giving you a consistently clean home without spending your time and effort.

And if you choose a Dyson 360 Vis Nav™, it intelligently monitors its battery level and returns to the dock to recharge when needed, before going back to finish the job.

“I think homes are getting smarter and more connected,” says James. “When done right this should offer us personalized and intelligent ways to keep our homes healthy whilst saving us time and effort.”
