Not all floor surfaces are created equal. Some are perfectly carpeted, and others are uniformly tiled. And in some areas of the house like the kitchen floor that can turn greasy or oily from time to time, you need more than a vacuum.
Thanks to innovative companies, there are robotic vacuum cleaners that can do other tasks such as dry and wet mopping. One of them is the Deik robot vacuum.
The Deik robot vacuum is a 3-in-1 machine equipped with several interesting features. It weighs 6.2 pounds, and it is 3.4 inches in height. Is this the perfect vacuum-mop for you?
In this Deik robot vacuum cleaner review, we give you a consumer report of what previous buyers have to say about their unit.
Deik Robot Vacuum Cleaner Review, The Basics
What features does the Deik robot vacuum cleaner have? Here are the most noteworthy.
First, know that this robotic vacuum is a 3-in-1 cleaner.
There are robot vacuums that have more than 3 functions, but for the Deik, it is capable of sweeping, vacuuming, and wet/dry mopping. It means that you don’t have to pre-clean your floors, or buy a separate device for surfaces that need mopping.
How are these functions possible? The Deik is equipped with a V-shaped rolling brush that has soft and hard hair designed to clean both hard floor and carpet. It is also equipped with not one but two side brushes for a thorough clean. Lastly, it comes with a “Smart Mop” with an “Electronic Control Seeping Speed.”
As for the vacuum function, features to note include the following: 1200Pa vacuum power to ensure strong suction that can pick up dust, litter, and other particles; a large dust bin (0.65 L), and a maximum run time of 90 minutes.
Other specs and features include:
– 5 cleaning modes, with new S-shaped route
– 2.5 cm off-road wheel
– Ah lithium battery
– weight: 6.2 lbs.

Deik Robot Vacuum Cleaner Review: Consumer Feedback
This Deik robot vacuum cleaner review wouldn’t be complete without our report of consumer feedback and comments. What do previous buyers have to say about their unit? Here’s a summary of what we found out.
In general, the Deik robot vacuum is not a replacement to the regular vacuum cleaner, but it does well as a supplement. It’s ideal for people with dogs that shed a lot, and for people having difficulty with the ordinary vac because of its weight or the amount of work put into it.
On how noisy it is…
According to the manufacturers, the Deik robot cleaner has a DB noise of 50-60 decibels. While the term “noisy” can be subjective depending on your tolerance level, it’s worth noting that a typical conversation is about 69 decibels and an upright vacuum produces 90 decibels.
Note that if you check out video demonstrations, one user pointed out that it can be louder in the video but not really in person.
On its vacuum function…
Here are some types of litter that this robot cleaner can pick up easily, as reported by previous buyers: cat litter, dog food crumbs, dust, dog hair.
According to a user, the Deik robot vacuum “dances into circles” when it detects some dirt to concentrate cleaning it. In comparison with other brands, one person said it’s “not as powerful if compared with a Dyson upright vacuum.”
On its mopping function…
As pointed out by one consumer, the mopping function is not “heavy” nor does it perform “deep cleaning.” But it does the job as it says it does. While the Deik collects dust and debris, it sprays water and then the mop cloth wipes the water off.
On how it transitions between surfaces…
This depends on the thickness of the next surface. For instance, one person said he has 1/2 inch carpet, and the Deik has difficulty climbing it. But in general, it’s a “pretty good climber.”
On the Deik’s limitations…
It doesn’t resume where it left off when it needs to go back to the charging dock. Some flimsy obstacles (like a towel) can get sucked up. It doesn’t come with an app. The remote doesn’t come with free batteries. It detects black rugs as cliffs.
