Robot Vacuum vs. Wet-Dry Vacuum: Still Unsure How to Choose?

Robot Vacuum vs. Wet-Dry Vacuum: Still Unsure How to Choose?

As a part of daily life, "doing chores" is a headache for many young people. After a day's work, all they want to do is lie down at home. To meet the need for saving time and effort, the market has seen a surge in cleaning products.

Due to rising market demand, cleaning products are one of the few categories that have continued to grow post-2023. As two major players in the cleaning product industry, robot vacuums and wet-dry vacuums have both performed well. According to the 2023 Annual Cleaning Product Report released by AVC, robot vacuums hold a 40% market share, and the market growth rate for robot vacuums is expected to reach 7.8% this year. In terms of growth contribution, robot vacuums have become the biggest driver of growth in the home cleaning appliance sector, with sales increasing by 22% compared to the previous year. Considering the growth stage of the category, the growth forecast for robot vacuums in 2024 remains at 15%.

Both the robot vacuum and the wet-dry vacuum are essential tools for home cleaning, but how do you decide which one to choose?

The robot vacuum uses intelligent algorithms to clean the floor, identifying and avoiding obstacles like walls and furniture in real-time. It scans the space to plan the shortest path for efficient cleaning. After cleaning, the robot returns to its base station, which handles tasks like charging, self-cleaning and drying of mop pads, refilling and emptying water, and disposing of dust, significantly reducing the need for manual intervention.

On the other hand, the wet-dry vacuum requires real-time operation by the user, and therefore, does not need the precise visual recognition and intelligent algorithms that a robot vacuum uses. Its main functions are vacuuming and cleaning. The rotating brush scrubs the stains off the floor, while the suction head pulls the debris into an internal wastewater tank, completing the floor cleaning process. After using the wet-dry vacuum, users need to place it on its base. Unlike the robot vacuum base, the wet-dry vacuum base has simpler functions, mainly cleaning and drying the brush. Users only need to clean the wastewater tank before continuing to use it.

Robot vacuums to clean floors through customized or intelligent models, larger living spaces are advantageous for their performance. However, if there are too many obstacles in the living environment, it can affect the cleaning efficiency of robot vacuums. Therefore, robot vacuums have certain limitations regarding their usage scenarios.

In contrast, wet-dry vacuums seem less restricted in terms of usage scenarios. Since the entire cleaning process requires manual operation, the cleaning can be precisely directed, without needing to consider the living space and environment.
