    On top of picking up dirt and pet hair, this robot vacuum is one of the cleaning products that are actually worth the splurge. It learns your cleaning habits using AI technology to provide you with suggested cleaning schedules. One charge lasts up to 90-minutes, then it automatically docks itself to recharge.

    Promising review: "This vacuum is amazing. It is so easy to use and it keeps my floors squeaky clean. We have three dogs, one of whom we believe is a husky mix. He sheds horribly and sweeping was definitely not getting up all of the hair. The suction power is super as well. It is also very easy to empty compared to an older model that we had. This vacuum is definitely awesome for deep cleaning and pet hair." —Lolo J.

    Get it from Amazon for $278.40 (available with or without accessories).

    2. A Eufy by Anker robot vacuum with laser navigation that you won't need to constantly hound to clean. Using its AI technology, it automatically maps out your home, so it knows what room it's cleaning without you needing to manually map it out.

    Help your home look spotless with little to no effort using a robot vacuum with multi-surface capabilities. Using smart technology, it detects what room it's in, and for more control, you can customize cleaning areas, no-go zones, and more using the app. One charge also provides up to 180-minutes of cleaning time.

    Here's what BuzzFeed Shopping Editor John Mihaly has to say about how effective "Bobby" is: "Got a chance to test out the RoboVac X8 and it immediately replaced our old robo-vac (which we named Bobby for some reason). Anyway, Bobby 2.0 here gets the job done all the time, every time. With two small kids and an even smaller dog, our apartment floors and rugs take a daily beating (food, pet hair, heck, human hair too, it's all over the place all of the time). The set-up was easy, the X8 never runs out of juice, and it accurately mapped our floorplan the first time. It's actually fun to watch this little bot on the app's map and see all the areas it covered. If you're looking to invest in a robo-vac, I'd highly recommend this one!" —John Mihaly

    Get it from Amazon for $599.99 (available to bundle with an Alexa).

    3. A powerful robot vacuum for keeping up with your pet's constant shedding. The added mopping feature will also aid in adding an extra shine to your floors.,

    Created with four levels of suction and three levels of water flow, you can determine just how deep of a clean you want your floors and carpet to receive. The vacuum also lasts up to 150 minutes of cleaning before it goes back to its charging dock.

    Promising review: "Overall, I love this robot. The robot is smart enough to go around obstacles in its way. It follows a well-planned route for cleaning instead of wandering around randomly through the room. I didn't expect it to vacuum much at first because we just did a thorough clean not long ago after we moved into the new apartment — but this vacuum is so powerful. I was surprised to see so much dust and hair come out from a seemingly clean carpet. It should be an excellent helper if you have pets. It's a bit noisy though due to its powerful suction, but it’s bearable." —Joe He

    Get it from Amazon for $349.99 (available in two colors).

    4. A robot vacuum for pet hair that'll have you howling over how much cleaning time it saves. Enjoy a faster clean through the touch-of-a-button or tap of your phone.,

    It can pick up dirt and pet hair on carpet, hardwood, tiling, and marble flooring, so you can kick your feet up while it does all the work. Its anti-fall and anti-collision sensors also limit bumping or falling — oh, and it also mops.

    Promising info: "I got this for cleaning up dirt and pet hair. UPDATE: OMG, this thing can mop! I got the wet mop bin and pads and let it loose on the previously mopped kitchen and I couldn't believe how dirty the pad was. It seems to cover everything several times which pretty much cleans it all. And it is soooooo quiet either mopping or vacuuming. We have two other brand bots that were almost $1,000 each and I would say other than lacking boundary controls, this one out cleans them both." —saspinner

    Get it from Amazon for $179.99.

    5. A paw-some robot vacuum for sweeping, mopping, and vacuuming. Gone are the days of manual floor cleaning once this vacuum touches your floors.

    Bed Bath & Beyond

    While it cleans your floors — right down to sweeping — it also simultaneously filters air to leave your house sparkling (or at least without hair tumbling across the floor). If you want it to avoid certain areas, then its blOck Plus will let you create up to two digital boundaries perpendicularly.

    Promising review: "I have four cats and a dog, and no pet hair tumbleweeds! I love Bob. My husband has back issues but was trying to vacuum because I work full-time. He finally stopped trying to hurt himself when I purchased Bob. Bob is a great member of the family pulling much more than his own weight with all of that hair in his dustbin. It was still more affordable than other models with the mopping function. Be sure to clean Bob after each use (it takes less than two minutes), but I've had Bob for at least two years and it is still going strong!" —LadyLiberty

    Get it from Bed Bath & Beyond for $351.99 (available in two colors) or from Amazon for $286.99.

    6. A quiet robot vacuum that won't spook your pets — or wake the kids. Reviewers find they can listen to music or watch TV without interruption, allowing you to continue on with your day while it does the cleaning.,

    The re-engineered model was made to be the slimmest of its kind so that it can get to those hard-to-reach spaces. This device was compared to a microwave in terms of loudness and features an infrared sensor to evade obstacles, and drop-sensing tech to avoid falls.

    Promising review: "I can't say enough about this little guy. It works great, cleans great, finds its way home great, and is quiet. My sister has the other brand that costs a lot more and it is not nearly as good as this little guy. I have a long hair cat and having a Robo vac is a must! It cleans up the hair and the other little bits of trash with no problem. It is quiet enough to continue watching TV while it moves through the room. It very seldom gets hung up or needs to be rescued. The low profile of this vac makes it perfect for cleaning under furniture and the cat has never been afraid of it. If you have a lot of pet fur, it will need to be emptied at least every other day." —Matthew's Mom

    Get it on Amazon for $199.99 (available for $40 off when you clip the coupon before checkout and in two colors).

    7. A splurge-worthy robot vacuum for pet hair for a puggin' good deep-clean. Since it was designed with smart technology, each automatic software update it goes through will provide you with additional features to improve and add to its cleaning capabilities.


    Get up to 150-minutes of deep cleaning in one charge with this device. The LaserSmart mapping and navigation software helps provide its most efficient and precise clean while the virtual no-go lines allow you to determine where it can't go.

    Promising review: "Purchased this about a month ago to replace a Roomba. The bot cleans way better and has fewer parts to clean on a weekly basis. It doesn’t leave hair rolls all over the house like the Roomba did. Cleans the entire house on one charge too! Really very happy with it." —Fireforthall

    Get it from Lowes for $599.99.

    8. A robot vacuum if you're looking for a budget-friendly and long-lasting machine. You don't always have to break the bank for a quality device and this one may earn two paws up for its cleaning capability and added features — and did we mention it's under $200?

    Reviewer image of blue robot vacuum charging moving on carpet

    This machine works fur-bulously on wood, hardwood, and carpet surfaces, plus it can go up 15-degrees to handle most bumps. For a budget-friendly device, it comes with four cleaning modes including auto clean, spot clean, wall follow clean, or manual clean, which you can control using the app, remote, or your voice (just connect it to your smart home device). 

    Promising review: "It works wonderfully. Gets stuck sometimes under a piece of furniture or tangles on cords. So you need to prepare a little bit. Pick up cords and anything you don't want to be stuck in the vacuum. I block off some areas that don't need the vacuum. I have six cats and three dogs so this has been a godsend for my wood floors. Transitions well from wood to carpet. I am very impressed. Pet hair and bits and pieces are all picked up without problems. The carpet nap is fluffed and cleaned." —L. Vaughn 

    Get it from Amazon for $135.88.

    9. A Bissell robot vacuum and mop that's double the cleaning so you can spend more time playing with your furry friends.

    Reviewer image of white robot vacuum in charging dock next to filter filled with dust and hair

    A robot vacuum is just one of the tech products that'll do the work for you and this model comes packed with features. It can even mop wood, tile, linoleum, and other sealed hard floors, making this a pet product worth the investment

    Promising review: "Whether the cat knocked over a plant and dumped dirt everywhere, or I just need the daily sweep of all the pet hair throughout the house, this thing is my favorite purchase of the past SEVERAL YEARS! It four-wheels over the 1-inch lip from our kitchen into the dining room so I don’t even have to help it, and when it does need help it's because it sucked up something that gets stuck. It beeps for human assistance and its mechanisms are all super simple to clean and disassemble. The dust bin is large enough to get the whole house in one go with me only having to dump it once per cleaning session when it’s done." —Kelly Cox

    Get it from Amazon for $319.98 (available with or without pet cleaner).

    10. An iHome robot vacuum ready to take on your pet-hair-filled carpets. You can actually customize your cleaning to be quiet, normal, or kick it into hyperdrive for when you skip a day (or two) of cleaning.,

    You'll almost fur-get what hair-covered floors look like once you turn this puppy on. It can automatically detect what surface it's on and adjust its settings accordingly while cleaning for up to 120 minutes before needing to recharge. Since it was built with a three-brush system and mopping capability, it vacuums and mops your floors at the same time — the mopping tank is not included.

    Promising review: "I recently sold my Roomba i7. It was just so LOUD that I couldn’t run it while in the room. It was also very erratic even with mapping technology. My sister owned this one, and I loved how well it cleaned while still being quiet. After owning, I found that the mapping technology is much smarter than my Roomba ever was. It doesn’t just ram into walls/furniture and slows down when approaching. It also remembers furniture and realizes foreign objects without remapping all the time. The bin is MUCH larger. The mop attachment is really neat, and all for one-third of the price!" —Deanna

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99 (available in two colors).

    11. A versatile robot vacuum to clean pet hair and more of life's little messes. It comes made with a detachable handheld vacuum for higher-up messes, including fur on the couch.

    Enjoy up to 90-minutes of vacuuming with the robot and up to 70-minutes with the handheld before they need to recharge. For those who prefer a device without cameras, this machine maps your home’s layout with proprietary sensors for more privacy. 

    Promising review: "This is the best robotic vacuum I've ever used! I love the handheld vacuum, too! Different than anything else out there." —Tex

    Get it from Walmart for $255.32 (available in two colors).
