Many people view cleaning as a chore that they would rather avoid, but with the right mindset and approach, cleaning can actually be a fun and satisfying activity. In this blog, we'll explore how to make cleaning fun with your auto vacuum cleaner. Whether you're a clean freak or someone who dreads cleaning, read on to discover how to make cleaning a more fun and satisfying activity with your auto vacuum cleaner.

Auto Vacuum Cleaners: Tips Keep Your Floors Clean Without Lifting a Finger

With a simple press of a button, auto vacuum cleaners can quickly and efficiently clean your floors without requiring any manual labor. However, there are still certain things you can do to optimize their cleaning power and ensure that they effectively clean your floors. Here are some tips and tricks to get the most out of your auto vacuum cleaner:

Take It for a Test Run

Before relying on your auto vacuum cleaner to clean your entire house, it's important to take it for a test run in different rooms and settings. This will allow you to identify any obstacles or challenges that the device may encounter, such as low-hanging furniture or tight spaces. By testing the device in different scenarios, you can optimize its cleaning power and ensure that it effectively cleans every corner of your home.

Clear Cords and Curtains

One common challenge that can arise with auto vacuum cleaners is cords and curtains getting tangled in the device. To prevent this from happening, it's important to clear these items out of the way before starting the cleaning process. Tuck cords away and move curtains out of the device's path to ensure that they don't get tangled or caught in the vacuum cleaner.

Tuck in Tassels and Stow Away Shag

Another common obstacle that can impede the cleaning power of auto vacuum cleaners is tassels and shaggy rugs. These items can easily get caught in the device's brushes, preventing it from effectively cleaning the floor. To prevent this from happening, tuck in tassels and stow away shaggy rugs before starting the cleaning process. This will allow the device to clean the floors without any interruptions or obstacles.

Build Barriers

To ensure your vacuum cleaner only cleans the areas you want, it's essential to build barriers that prevent it from accessing off-limit spaces. For example, DEEBOT virtual boundaries enable you to restrict your robot from entering specific rooms or spaces. If you don't want it to venture into your home office, create a boundary within the app across the doorway, and the DEEBOT will reverse and proceed to other areas. Here are the steps to build boundaries:
  • To utilize virtual boundaries, you need to generate a map first.
  • Simply initiate your robot's initial cleaning session – it will explore your home and develop a map.
  • Once completed, open the app and select "Map Management" located in the upper right corner of the map. 
  • After completing this step, the app will rotate by 90 degrees, allowing you to create, edit, and delete boundaries on the map:
  • Upon saving your boundaries, your robot will now intelligently navigate your home while steering clear of designated rooms or troublesome areas.

Besides, your cleaning journey will be guaranteed by ECOVACS AIVI technology, which detects obstacles and intelligently avoids them. With AIVI, you can rest assured that your vacuum cleaner will stay away from delicate items to effectively finish its cleaning task.

Tidy Up Tables

Maintaining a tidy table surface can help prevent small items from being accidentally picked up by your vacuum cleaner, which could potentially cause damage to the device. Make sure you remove any small objects like coins, paper clips, and other loose items from tables and floor areas. A clutter-free environment ensures a smooth and safe cleaning experience for your vacuum cleaner.

Set a Cleaning Schedule

Setting a consistent cleaning schedule is key to achieving optimal performance from your vacuum cleaner. Regular cleaning ensures that your home stays fresh and clean while preventing dirt buildup. The ECOVACS Home App allows you to easily set up cleaning schedules for your device, providing a user-friendly interface and the option to customize your vacuum's routine. Additionally, with the Yiko Voice Assistant, you can control your vacuum cleaner using voice commands, making it even more convenient to maintain a consistent cleaning schedule.

Place the Charging Station out in the Open

For your vacuum cleaner to function efficiently, it's important to place its charging station in an easily accessible location. The ECOVACS OMNI Station, for example, offers a compact design that fits seamlessly into your home decor. It can not only auto-charge your DEEBOT, but also enables auto-clean and auto water refill, providing hands-free exceptional cleaning experience. By placing the charging station out in the open, you'll ensure your vacuum cleaner can find and dock with it. You can enjoy this top-of-the-line technology in our DEEBOT X1 OMNI.


Clean Your Robot Vacuum Cleaner and Mop

Maintaining your robot vacuum cleaner and mop is essential for optimal performance and longevity. Regularly clean the dustbin, filters, brushes, and mop pads to ensure efficient cleaning. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for proper cleaning procedures and replacement intervals to keep your cleaning robot in top condition.

What Should You Not Clean With an Automatic Vacuum Cleaner? 

Although automatic vacuum cleaner is a useful tool, there are certain items that should not be cleaned with an automatic vacuum cleaner. Here are some items you should avoid cleaning with your smart device:

Delicate Fabrics - Automatic vacuum cleaners can be too harsh on delicate fabrics such as silk or lace. These fabrics can easily get sucked into the device and get damaged. It's best to clean these fabrics manually using a soft-bristled brush or a handheld vacuum cleaner.

Large Debris or Objects: Automatic vacuum cleaners are not intended for picking up large objects or debris, such as pieces of broken glass, larger food items, or heavy debris. These objects can get stuck in the vacuum's brush or cause damage to the device.

Flammable or Toxic Materials: Do not use a robot vacuum to clean up flammable or toxic materials, as this can pose a safety risk.

Cords and Cables: Ensure that electrical cords, cables, and charging wires are out of the robot vacuum's path to prevent entanglement or damage to both the vacuum and the cords.


In conclusion, making cleaning fun with your auto vacuum cleaner is not only possible but can also transform the way you approach household chores. By embracing the convenience and efficiency of auto vacuum cleaners, you can free up time to focus on more enjoyable activities and create a cleaner, healthier living environment with minimal effort. So, why not give it a try and experience the benefits for yourself?
