Scientists and entrepreneurs alike always make things easier for us, especially at home. And if you hate having to scrub up, here are new technologies for cleaning your house.
Robot Vacuum Cleaners
Having a robot do the vacuuming used to be something from science fiction. But AI vacuums have been around for a while since Electrolux invented the first one in 1996. But the tech was a little shoddy and unreliable. Then in 2002, the Roomba came out and changed everything. So now, you can get your little AI buddy to suck up all the dust in your carpets. While the best carpet cleaners are still humans, it shouldn’t be too long before we have a robot for everything. Elon Musk and Tesla are currently working on humanoid AIs that can do chores and even drive!
Automatic Soap Dispensers
Using soap in your home, especially in the kitchen and bathroom, is necessary. But even though the soap products are clean and antibacterial, germs can linger on the packaging or on hand soap. Viruses such as flu and COVID-19 are commonly found on soap dispensers and hand soaps. And other nasty bugs such as cryptosporidium and salmonella can also make their home in your kitchen and bathroom. So it’s a no-brainer that you need to invest in an automatic soap dispenser. These use motion-sensing technology to detect when your hand is near them and will release soap or hand gel accordingly. Even better, they aren’t expensive to buy.
Technologies for Cleaning Includes Apps
Cleaning involves keeping track of things. And like everything else today, there’s an app for that. Well, there are several, actually. Apps like Spotless, Tody, and Clean My House provide excellent features for tracking your home’s cleaning. You can also set routines, assign jobs to family members and make a checklist everyone can tick off. You can also integrate some apps with smart technologies. One of the most impressive is touch sensors. Touch sensors count how many times a surface has been touched and will alert you that it needs cleaning.
Completely Safe Cleaning Sprays
Many of the most famous and widely used cleaning sprays are made from harsh chemicals. Many of which are so bad you are advised to use them in a well-ventilated area. And this also goes for newly-developed solutions for combating COVID-19. However, advancements in cleaning technologies mean you can get organic and natural antibacterial solutions for cleaning your kitchen and bathroom without worrying about hazardous chemicals. Some of the best brands include CleanWell Botanical Disinfectant and Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds.
Portable UV Phone Cleaner
You probably know about ultraviolet radiation. It’s what causes sunburn on your skin, and beauticians use it for drying your acrylic nails with those little machines. But you may not know that UV is great at killing pretty much any kind of germs. This is why it’s used to treat our drinking water. And like nail machines, the technology is available for portable cleaning devices. For example, a popular one during the pandemic is a portable UV-C smartphone cleaner. Quite helpful since the average phone screen is covered in over 25,000 germs per square inch.
New technologies are great for cleaning. For example, robot vacuums are cheaper than ever, and automated soap dispensers mean no touching. You can also use apps and UV radiation.
