'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
We get it. The holidays can be a stressful time, especially if you're prepping to host this year. Instead of worrying about another chore to check off your list, invest in a robot vacuum to clean and mop your floors. You can get a refurbished robot vacuum on sale right now with the Shark IQ RV100AE/UR1000SR robot vacuum for only $150, with an unreal savings of $244.
This robot vacuum can handle dust, dirt and allergens. Since it was designed to handle pet hair, you won't have to worry about cleaning up after your pet that sheds all over the floors. The self-cleaning brushroll will also elongate how often you have to clean the robot, and it self-empties so you don't have to think about it.
The Shark will go row by row in your home for a spotless floor cleaning experience and uses Total Home Mapping technology to remember rooms. You can schedule a whole home cleaning or simply select a room that needs a little TLC ahead of the holidays with the SharkClean app. Don't want to use the app? Use Alexa voice commands to start the vacuum.
When it runs low on battery, it will automatically return to its station to recharge and empty its bin. The bin can handle up to 30 days of dirt and debris, so you won't have to think about it most days.
