Top Tech for a Cleaner, Healthier Home in 2020

From robot vacuums to ultra-modern humidifiers and air purifiers, here’s a look at some technologies that can make chores easier and your home cleaner

Thanks to Marie Kondo and the immense power of health-related New Year’s Resolutions, a very large number of American households are about to undergo an intense spring cleaning when the cold, wintery weather finally lets up. As tiresome as doing household chores may be, it is essential if you want your home to be not only aesthetically pleasing but also a healthy environment for your family to live in. Thankfully, household chores no longer have to be time-consuming or physically tiring. Thanks to a growing range of astounding technological innovations, it is now easier than ever to keep your home looking and smelling its best every day of the week. From robot vacuums and window cleaners to ultra-modern humidifiers and air purifiers, here’s a closer look at just some of the technologies that can be embraced to make your chores easier and your house cleaner than ever before. 

Vacuum cleaners offer a clean sweep

The days of laboriously sweeping your floors until they are clean are long gone, thanks to the rise of the robot vacuum cleaner, which has made household chores much more appealing. There is a large variety of robot vacuums on the market to suit most budgets. If you are looking for the best possible automated vacuuming experiencing available, it is recommended to seek out a unit that boasts a self-emptying bin with sensors, a proprietary corner brush, a rubber roller brush that scrubs up low-pile carpeting, and infallible smart maps complete with no-go areas. Most high-end units connect via WiFi and can be paired with most smart home systems, such as Alexa and Google Home.

Cleaning windows can be much less tedious

According to a recent survey published in a British newspaper, cleaning windows is one of the most disliked household chores among Americans. Thankfully, the cleaning robot trend is not just limited to vacuum cleaners. There is, in fact, a varied range of robot window cleaners available that replaces the time usually reserved for window cleaning with leisure time. This new-found spare time can be utilized for paging through magazines, shopping with friends, or lounging next to the pool. Although robot window cleaners have come a long way in recent years, they have not quite reached the stage where they can freely roam on windows and are typically connected to a base via an adjustable cord. Like a robot vacuum cleaner, robot window cleaners typically connect to a device via WiFi, and can also be connected to most smart home systems.

Remember to clean the air

At present, it is estimated that the average American spends up to 90% of the day inside, where the air quality is often significantly worse than one would imagine (and worse than what it is outside). Although it isn’t possible to control the air quality elsewhere, there are a number of ways to ensure that the air inside your own home is as innocuous as possible. New-age humidifiers such as the Venta range make use of a natural humidification process to both humidify the air in your home and clean it by removing pollen, dust, pet dander, and other airborne pollutants from it.

A house that is clean not only looks and smells better but is also more conducive to good health and improved well-being. By investing in a range of technologically-advanced cleaning aids, you can benefit the welfare of your family as much as you can the condition of your home.
