Will Robots Replace House Cleaners?

Will robots replace house cleaners? We Ask a House cleaner today about technology and things like the robot vacuum.

Angela Brown, The House Cleaning Guru says robots already automate many of our household chores. Think about the dishwasher, dryer, and washing machines – all robots. Sure, they do the jobs quicker, faster and easier than humans, but you still need a human to finish chores.

Automatic or not, there are all tasks that still need a maid to clean. House cleaning is not going away.

Question: Will Robots Replace House Cleaners?

Will robots replace house cleaners? It’s a fair question. Because in my lifetime I’ve seen a whole bunch of automated systems that have replaced human jobs.

 We’re going to talk about that today. Hey there, I’m Angela Brown, and this is Ask a House Cleaner. This is a show where you get to ask a house cleaning question, and I get to help you find an answer.

We had a house cleaner that was curious to know, “Do you think robots will replace house cleaners?”

Answer: Robots Have Replaced Some Chores Already


 We started thinking about it. We’re thinking maybe there are already items that automate some of the tasks we do. For example, most of us have dishwashers, and you can plop your dishes in there.

How About The Dishwasher? 

Robots Replacing Housecleaners dishwasherAnd the dishwasher washes the dishes for you so you don’t have to do. But it still requires a human to stand there and to load the dishes in, and to take the dishes back out. And you have to put the dishes away in the cupboard. The dishwasher doesn’t do that part.

Got a Washing Machine?

Robots don't use washboardsWe have washing machines. No longer do we have to wash clothes with a ripple board.

 We just toss the clothes inside the washing machine. We add some soap, add some softener, and hit the go button, and presto, our clothes wash.

But after you wash the clothes, then you have to take the clothes out of the washing machine. And you have to put them in the dryer. The washing machine doesn’t take the clothes out themselves and put them in the dryer.

Humans Not Robots Fold Clothes

Robots Replacing Housecleaners clean clothesIt takes a human to do that. and then when you take them out of the dryer, they don’t just fold themselves and put themselves away. That takes a human.

And so whether it’s a mom, a dad, or one of the kids, it’s going to take a human to finish the rest of those chores.

Vacuum Robots Are Popular

Robots Dyson Robotic Vacuum 360 EyeNow, they do make the automated vacuum that zips around the floor. It vacuums your floor in the pattern that you create based on the pattern you program. And when it bumps into a corner, it turns, and it just keeps vacuuming.

Then when it’s done vacuuming, it zips itself over to the little docking station, and it plugs itself in. I mean, how cool is that?

Vacuum Robots Are Not Human

Robots Replacing Housecleaners cleaning stainBut there are certain things about the automated vacuum it can’t determine. Let’s say that there is a stain on your carpet. It will just vacuum right over the top of that.

It doesn’t know it needs to stop, clean up the stain before continuing. 

So, there are things like that it can’t do. 

House cleaning is never going to go out of style if you will, because there are always things that need a human.

Humans Can Choose Cleaning Methods and Solutions

As you clean, there are different surfaces. And you have to determine, “Does this need polish this time, or does this just need a damp rag?” Robots Replacing House cleaners housecleaner

There is no robot that exists just yet that can make those determinations for you.

 Every house is different and has different needs. And so there can’t be one robot that knows which type of surface you have or the best way of cleaning it. 

 So if you are a house cleaner or if you’re thinking about starting a house cleaning business, now is the time.

There will always be a need for house cleaners in our lifetime. 

Even though we have the technology – we still need humans to activate and direct the technology.

Alrighty, and that’s my two cents for today. And until we meet again, leave the world a cleaner place than when you found it.
