Cleaning the house can be a real pain, but what if there was a way to have a clean home without having to clean it yourself? That’s exactly where robotic vacuums come in, allowing you to focus on more important things while they take care of cleaning the floors. The Roborock S4 is Roborock’s latest robotic vacuum, offering a ton of powerful features at a relatively affordable price.
The Roborock S4 is aimed at being able to clean your home thoroughly and quietly -- and all at an affordable price. It’s built to be able to easily navigate through your home with its built-in mapping and navigation tech, and it’s all in a classy-looking shell that should look right at home in any modern environment.
There are plenty of things to like about the Roborock S4 in particular, but perhaps the best thing about it is that it can be scheduled to work without any human interference whatsoever. In other words, the vacuum could be scheduled to clean while you’re at work -- so you’ll never see it clean, you’ll just have clean floors. That leaves more time to spend with your family, do things you enjoy, or be more productive.
Of course, if you don’t have to worry about cleaning your floors, then they’ll probably get cleaned more often. That’s good news for those with busy lives, or for those with allergies -- as it’ll clean up potential allergens in your home more often.
The Roborock S4 is pretty powerful too. The device is powerful enough to pick up objects as heavy as AA batteries, meaning that it’ll excel at picking up dust and dirt from your carpets. It has a floating brush built right into it, which is able to adjust its height depending on the length of your carpet and drop down for hard floors.
There’s no need to worry about it missing spots either. The Roborock S4 has a high-precision laser system that scans your entire room to create a map of your home that’s accurate within two centimeters -- which is very impressive. Once it maps your room, it’ll work in a Z-shaped cleaning pattern to ensure that it doesn’t miss anything, and it has a side brush that can target dust in corners without letting it escape, which is a handy touch. The vacuum boasts a whopping 11 different types of sensors built right in, which work together to ensure that it cleans every spot and avoids falling down stairs or other cliffs.
There might be some areas that you don’t want the vacuum to go near -- and you can program those as well. From the app, you can set up no-go zones, so you won’t have to worry about it accidentally knocking over something precious or fragile.
The Roborock S4 works great for those with larger homes too. The device has a huge 5,200mAh battery, which enables it to clean for a hefty three hours before it runs out of power. That’s far longer than most humans are likely to spend vacuuming their home, so you know that the device will do a thorough job. It should last a long time too -- air filters can trap mould and other dangerous particles, but the air filter in the Roborock S4 can be cleaned, so those particles won’t build up over time.
The app is built to be easy to use, and the vacuum works with Alexa too -- so if you prefer to use your voice to control devices like a robotic vacuum, you can do that too.
So how is the vacuum so inexpensive? Well, the only real feature that it’s missing is the ability to mop, which is found on the Roborock S6. Many, however, may not need the feature -- making the Roborock S4 the right way to go.
Interested in getting the Roborock S4 for yourself? It’s now available for purchase, and you can get it straight from Amazon. In fact, at launch the vacuum will be available at a pretty impressive discount -- it’ll come at $40 off, bringing the total to a very affordable $359.
