Shiny, voluminous hair is on everyone's wish list, but the drawbacks to more hair breakage and consequently, more fallen hairs. In particular those with long hair, they are more likely to notice strands on the floor due to the greater volume, and it can be annoying to pick up hair day after day.

Nowadays, more people are turning to smart vacuums for hands-free cleaning. However, long hair is a challenging task, not because of the amount, but because it tends to tangle around the brushes. Meant to pick up dirt and debris, these brushes lose their capability when entangled with hair. The only solution is to detach the brush and carefully cut away the tangled hair.

Recognising this issue, manufacturers like us have developed specialised features, like tangle-free brushes, to manage hair effectively.

Why You Need A Robot Vacuum For Long Hair

If you're constantly battling long hair on your floors, a robotic vacuum cleaner could be the solution you need. Long hair tends to wrap around vacuum brushes, reducing their efficiency and at the same time, increasing the need for frequent maintenance. By investing in an automatic vacuum designed for long hair, you can save time and avoid the hassle of manual clean-ups.

Robot floor cleaners are "smart" in navigating and mapping your house, even in the dark, to find the most efficient cleaning routes. Their strong suction power picks up hair without it getting stuck on the brushes and ensures it is safely collected in the perfectly sealed dustbin. More importantly, as hair tends to fall constantly, smart vacuums are perfect because you can pre-schedule cleaning sessions remotely via the app. This allows frequent cleaning to keep your place always hair-free.

How To Choose A Robot Vacuum For Long Hairs

Consider the following features when choosing an auto vacuum to ensure it is ready to keep your floor free of hair:

Brushes and Tangle-Free Designs: Look for models with rubber brushes or specialised detangling technologies, such as the "ZeroTangle Anti-Tangle Technology" feature in the DEEBOT T30 Family. ZeroTangle is a dual comb-teeth-array structure developed by ECOVACS that effectively straightens the hair vacuumed-up, accelerates airflow in the air duct. Paired with an anti-static V-shaped bristle, it greatly reduces the probability of hair tangling on the main brush, with a tangling rate as low as 0%5, eliminating the maintenance troubles caused by hair entanglement.

Suction Power:High suction power, from 3,000 Pa and above, is essential for effectively capturing long hairs. DEEBOT robot vacuums feature strong suction to ensure hair is lifted from all types of flooring without getting caught in the vacuum's mechanism.

Filters: High-efficiency filters play a crucial role in trapping pet dander and hair. This not only helps in cleaning but also improves the air qualityof your home.

Dustbin Capacity:Opt for vacuums with larger bins to reduce the needs of manual emptying. This is particularly useful in homes with long-haired residents or pets, where hair accumulation is faster.

Smart Features:Look for advanced navigation, mapping, and app integration. These features allow the vacuum to navigate around your home intelligently, ensuring that no area is missed and that it can effectively manage areas with more hair.

Maintenance Tips for Robot Vacuums Handling Long Hair

No matter it is to deal with long hair, or prevent other issues like stopping, maintaining your auto vacuum on a regular basis is key to lengthen its lifespan. Here are some tips from us to keep your device in top condition:

Clean the Brushes Regularly: Hair tends to wrap around the brushes, affecting the vacuum's performance. Gently remove the brushes and cut away any tangled hair with scissors. This should be done weekly to prevent build-up.

Empty the Dustbin After Every Use: A full dustbin reduces suction power. Make it a habit to empty the dustbin after each cleaning session, or once a week with the auto-empty station like OMNI station, ensuring your vacuum operates at peak efficiency.

Check and Clean the Filters: Filters trap dust and allergens but can clog over time. Wash or replace them according to the manufacturer's instructions to maintain air flow and suction power. This is usually recommended every month.

Inspect and Clean the Wheels: Hair and debris can also wrap around the wheels, hindering smooth movement. Regularly check the wheels and remove any objects with a pair of tweezers that might prevent your robot vacuum to spin.

Wipe Down Sensors and Cameras: Use a soft, dry cloth to gently clean the robot's cameras and sensors to ensure it navigates smoothly and accurately around your home.
