Cleaning Materials and Tech Your Home Needs in 2016

Who doesn't love a new gadget?  In recent years, we have seen dozens of posts about trendy gadgets or best practices for some innovative industry.  House cleaning services in Cambridge may not be the first thing that comes to mind, but there's plenty of gadgets and some tried and tested techniques that will never go out of fashion.

Future of robotics in the home

If you’re about to jump on the spring cleaning, keep these house cleaning tips and technologies in mind.

Robotic Vacuums

Robotic vacuum cleaners aren’t brand new, but they’re more affordable and effective than ever before. Model prices range from £250 for a Neato Robotic XV, to £600 for an iRobot Roomba 780

The Roomba by iRobot is one of the most popular options, with a variety of models ranging from £300 to £600. These come with familiar attachments that may remind you of your old Hoover. There are even robotic floor scrubbers, mops, and pool cleaners.


This year, leave the ladder in the garage – let a robot do your window washing. Winbot by Ecovacs Robotics uses magnetics to secure itself to a window and employs microfiber pads to get the job done. This can be a major time saver if you have tall windows or a storefront to keep nice and shiny. 

The Winbot W850 window cleaning robot is currently priced at £249.00.

If these innovations leave you feeling some technophobia, here are a couple classics that technology could never replace.

Fresh Lemons

Lemons can help you clean some metals and copper, your sink and shower faucets, the microwave, and more. They’re particularly useful in removing unpleasant food smells or stains.

Cornstarch is another stain-saver. Sprinkle some on carpets or upholstery where needed, dab with some white vinegar (after it sits for 10–15 minutes), and depending on the spot, hit it with the vacuum.
