In modern life, small fibers like pet hair and human hair often get entangled in the brushes of robot vacuum cleaners, affecting their normal cleaning efficiency. To overcome this issue, many manufacturers have implemented Anti-Tangle Technology to ensure the smooth operation of the brush, free from tangles.
In this article, we will introduce these designs and technologies applied to vacuum cleaners to prevent hair tangling, hoping to provide you with valuable insights for your purchase decision.
Materials for Anti-Tangle Technology
A common approach to preventing tangling is to use brush materials with anti-tangling properties. For instance, rubber-made brush rolls have a smooth surface with a certain level of stickiness, reducing the likelihood of hair getting tangled. There are currently two types of rubber brush rolls available: dual-effect combination brush rolls and single-effect combination brush rolls.
The Dual-effect combination brush rolls, use compression and rotation to remove and suction away dust and hair, while single-effect combination brush rolls use V-shaped or other patterned ridges to gather and vacuum up debris. For example, the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra uses a single-effect combination brush roll, while the Roomba 800 series and 900 series use dual-effect combination brush rolls.
Some brush rolls are equipped with blades that cut through fibers entwined in the bristles through repetitive movements. Regularly cutting hair helps prevent excessive tangling, making it easier for debris to enter the dustbin. For example, the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum S10T features embedded blades.
Detachable Brush Rolls
The design of detachable brush rolls allows users to easily remove the brush and clean out trapped fibers. Through regular cleaning, users can effectively prevent hair tangling issues and maintain the robot vacuum’s efficient performance. For instance, the Roborock Q5 series features detachable brush rolls.
Pure Suction Mouth
As the name suggests, this type of robot vacuum cleaner lacks a brush roll and relies solely on internal suction to clean dirt and hair from the floor. However, this approach has its limitations. While it avoids hair tangling, its cleaning effectiveness might be relatively average. For example, the ILIFE V3s Pro employs this design.
Conclusion of Anti-Tangle Technology
The design of brush rolls to prevent hair tangling is a significant innovation in the field of robot vacuum cleaners. By employing various advanced designs and technological solutions, users can enjoy a cleaner home environment with less effort.
When choosing a robot vacuum cleaner, consider your specific needs and the type of flooring in your home. If pet hair is a concern, models with anti-tangling technology or detachable brush rolls may be more suitable. Additionally, reading user reviews and consulting product specifications can provide valuable insights into the effectiveness of hair tangling prevention mechanisms.
