Choosing the Perfect Robot Vacuum for Your New BTO Home

By Ben Lai

Congrats on your BTO (Build-To-Order) home! Now that you've got your keys and are ready to transform your space into the cozy haven you've envisioned, one essential appliance you might be considering is a robot vacuum.

In our modern fast-paced world, a robot vacuum is no less than a domestic blessing. But with so many options on the market, how do you pick the perfect companion to keep your new BTO home spotless? Let's explore.


1. Assess the Size and Layout of Your Home

First, consider the size of your BTO HDB flat. Most BTO units range from 2-room Flexi to 5-room flats. Your robot vacuum should be able to cover your entire home efficiently. Look for vacuums with longer battery life if you have a more spacious flat.


2. Consider the Cleaning Power of robot vacuum

One of the standout models in the market is the TP-Link Tapo RV30 Plus. It boasts a powerful 4200Pa suction power. Whether you're dealing with tiny dust particles or larger debris, this vacuum ensures a thorough cleanup.

The Tapo RV30 Plus also comes with a replaceable HEPA filtration system. This ensures that even the finest dust particles cannot escape the robot vacuum and it prevents any further contamination after the vacuum process.


3. Robot Vacuum Navigation is Key

Incorporated with LiDAR-powered navigation and mapping, the Tapo RV30 Plus can intelligently maneuver around furniture and obstacles. It learns the layout of your new home and optimizes its cleaning routes over time.

Looking for more control? You can direct the Tapo RV30 Plus robot vacuum to only clean a specific area, either a selected room or just a specific zone. You can also prevent the robot vacuum from entering areas like kids zone by configuring it on the app.


4. Storage Capacity Matters

Nobody wants to empty the vacuum bin constantly. The 70 days capacity auto empty bin of the Tapo RV30 Plus means you can sit back and relax for over two months before needing to empty or clean the robot vacuum!

Once the bag is full, it’s really easy to replace it within 10 seconds. The dust bag is self-sealing and it means no fuss or mess when it’s time to replace the dust bag. Everything is contained in the bag in a sanitary manner.


5. Think Beyond Just Vacuuming

HDB BTO homes are known for their sleek finish, often featuring a mix of tiles and vinyl flooring. The Tapo RV30 Plus goes a step further by offering a mopping function with HEPA filtration. It's not just about vacuuming; it's about ensuring a squeaky clean floor.

Tapo RV30 Plus comes with a reusable mopping pad which is more environmentally friendly than single use mopping pad on other robot vacuum cleaners. 


6. Robot Vacuum Battery Life

Imagine your robot vacuum dying halfway through a cleaning cycle. Not fun, right? The Tapo RV30 Plus shines again with its long battery life, providing up to 5 hours of continuous cleaning with a high capacity 5000mAh battery. Perfect for those deep cleaning days!


7. Suitability for Singapore’s HDB Flats

With its advanced features, the Tapo RV30 Plus is the perfect choice for HDB BTO homes in Singapore. Its design and functionality align seamlessly with the common layouts and needs of a BTO home.


8. Ease of Use and Maintenance

Lastly, you want a robot vacuum that's easy to set up, use, and maintain. Look for models with intuitive apps, clear instructions, and easily available replacement parts. All Tapo robot vacuums come with an 18 months warranty with a local service center in Singapore for your peace of mind.


Closing Thoughts

Receiving the keys to your BTO home is an exciting milestone. As you set up your new space, consider investing in a robot vacuum that's not just about convenience, but also about ensuring a clean, healthy living environment. The TP-Link Tapo RV30 Plus, with its advanced features tailored for HDB homes, is a worthy contender to be your trusty cleaning sidekick.
