Back in 2002, iRobot released the Roomba. Even at the hefty price of $250, the world got sucked into the robot cleaning craze. These days, several companies are riding the wave of robot vacuums and have models that can clean almost anything, at all price points. Bradly Hasemeyer is sharing his picks of the top three cleaning robots of 2016!

1.  Neato Botvac

The D80 model is loaded with tech, and retails for around $500. It's on the costly side of our list, but what's your time worth? What sets this bad boy apart from the competition is its laser guided technology along with a special brush that is designed to get all that pet hair.

2.  Anker RoboVac

This cheaper option will get you into the robot vacuum revolution for only $200. You can pre-set cleaning times, it’s got a HEPA filter, and a battery that lasts about an hour and a half.

3.  iRobot Braava Jet

This cool cleaning robot does that other chore you hate- mopping! This little guy is a wet and dry mop, and it also hits those spots that might not be so fun to clean. You can get the Braava for less than $200 on Amazon and Best Buy and iRobot.com.

It just might be the perfect time to jump on the robo-cleaning train, because now it won’t sweep away your bank account.
