Last but not the least

HEPA filter allows more effective dust cleaning. So, if your budget allows, ensure the robot cleaner has a HEPA filter. Also, check out its warranty period. Most vendors offer one-year warranty. Finally, after you buy a robot cleaner, don’t forget that it requires regular weekly maintenance of parts like brushes, dustbin and mops.
