Cleaning your house probably isn’t your favorite thing to do – but it’s still something that needs to be done. Vacuuming in particular can be a real pain, especially if you have a vacuum that’s mostly designed to work on carpets and not hard floors – as it means that you have to turn to other methods for your hard floors. That, however, is where the new Roborock S6 comes in -- which is available at a pretty heavy discount on Amazon from August 12 to August 18.

The Roborock S6 is part of a new generation of robotic vacuums, which are more powerful, quieter, and more versatile – and it can easily replace your manual vacuum cleaner and even your broom and other tools you use to manually clean your floors.

Perhaps the best thing about the Roborock S6 is that it can effectively be used without human interference. In other words, your floors will remain relatively clean without you really having to do anything at all, freeing up your time to be more productive, more relaxed, or to get better at your hobbies. You could even take a nap instead of cleaning – given the fact that the Roborock S6 is 50%quieter than previous-generation models -- meaning that it’s now quiet enough to have a normal conversation without getting too distracted.

There are plenty of other benefits to the Roborock S6, other than the fact that you don’t really need to do anything to keep your floors clean. Namely, if your floors are cleaned automatically, then they’ll likely be cleaned more often – and that’s great news for those with allergies, given the fact that it will reduce the number of allergens in your home. Not only that, but pet owners can spend more time with their pets than having to clean up their pet’s hair all the time.

The Roborock S6 is pretty spectacularly-designed too, featuring a classic round design, which is available in white, black, or rose gold -- all of which look great. It has even won an iF product design award for design excellence. It’s super smart as well – it’ll roam around your home on its own, and uses a huge sensor array, accelerometer, odometer, infra-red sensors, compass, and more, to navigate through your home without falling off stairs or getting trapped. You can even program virtual walls into the device, ensuring that it doesn’t go too close to objects in your home that might be fragile. It even has a map-saving feature – so it can create a map of your home, ensuring that it never misses a spot and cleans things quickly and effectively. 

The Roborock S6 goes beyond being just a vacuum too – from time to time you might need it to mop instead of vacuum, and it can do that too. Simply attach the mop attachment and tell the vacuum how much water to use – after which it will be able to mop and vacuum at the same time. That’s a pretty smart setup, and means the device should be able to handle all of your floor-cleaning needs.

Of course, you might be wondering about the Roborock S6’s cleaning power – and it’s pretty powerful. The vacuum has enough suction to lift items as heavy as AA batteries, meaning it’s more than capable of handling dirt and hair off hard floors and sucking it up from deep inside carpets.

While the easiest thing to do would be to set the vacuum up to automatically clean when you leave the home, sometimes you need a more immediate clean – and you’re covered there too. It’s easy to activate the Roborock S6 straight from the Roborock app, or you could save a few steps and simply ask Alexa on your Amazon Echo device to start cleaning – and it’ll kick into action. 

If you’re interested in checking out the vacuum for yourself, it’s well worth acting quick -- as there’s a one week launch promotion for the black model, which is valid from Monday August 12 to Sunday, August 18 -- and allows you to get the vacuum for only $579.99, which is a hefty $70 off the regular price of $649.99.
