Pet parents should watch out for these 6 robot vacuums on Black Friday – LSB

Read our full Roborock S8+ review.

Why we chose this:

Roborock recently updated its popular S7 line of robot vacuums with the S8, and after testing the new S8+ hybrid vacuum and mop, we can definitely recommend it to pet parents. An extra-large dust bin can handle pet hair, dust and debris for 60 days or more, and the vibrating mop pad does a lot more than slide a damp mop across the floor (although the spot cleaning mode leaves plenty of to be desired). If you want a robot vacuum that can provide thorough carpet cleaning and hard floor, then you’ll be happy with the S8+.

You might be less happy about the price: $999.99. You can usually find a coupon that brings the price down to around $800, but it’s still an expensive product. However, this vacuum justifies its price by making cleaning up after your pets a lot easier. It’s so satisfying to hear the extra suction as the S8+ rolls over a carpeted area, and because of this floor recognition, you don’t have to worry about accidentally wiping your new carpet.

The S8+ also creates a very accurate map thanks to its built-in LiDAR and Smart Mapping, although it can struggle when it comes across a rogue charging cable.

Who is it for:

Unless your home was last renovated in the early 1990s, then we’re guessing no wall-to-wall carpeting. Most homes and apartments have a combination of hardwood (or more likely laminate), tile, carpet and rugs. No matter what floor combination you have, the new S8+ from Roborock can detect, clean and mop as needed.

If you want the ultimate robot vacuum and pet hair mop, then this new hybrid will be up to the task.
