36 Examples of Smart Cleaning Solutions

From Window-Washing Drones to Modular Vacuum Cleaners

— May 11, 2016 — Art & Design
These smart cleaning solutions range from window-washing drones to modular vacuum cleaners that are designed to work on a variety of floor surfaces. Standouts include eco-friendly and transformative steam machines along with intuitive robot vacuums that can be programmed to sterilize large surfaces as well as tighter nooks and crannies.

In addition to connected vacuums, mops, steam cleaners and other similar gadgets, other notable innovations in this realm include germ-killing toilet brushes and ultrasonic faucets that ensure more hygienic personal care and home cleaning routines.

Furthermore, examples like kitchen-cleaning robots and window-wiping drones round off this list of smart cleaning solutions and are reflective of society's growing obsession with intelligent devices that can eventually replace the need for physical cleaning practices in both consumers' homes and within public spaces.
