40+ Images Of Cleaning Fails That Are Hilarious And Painful At The Same Time

No one likes doing house chores.

You cannot expect me to believe you if you say you love doing house chores. Nobody does. Because firstly, they come up at the worst time possible because for me I get a call to clean all the rooms just when I’ve gotten into an online 1 v 1. Now how do I tell my Mum that this game cannot be paused. Lost around 1500 coins the other day because I had to tidy the lawn. Still salty about that.


I am pretty sure that life is now easy when one of those vacuum robots got invented. Even I myself thought ‘yay, no more vacuuming.’ But those tiny innocent machines that we thought would do all the work for us, sometimes double our work. Apparently, the inventors forgot to put a brain in that thing and it is very easy for that tiny automatic vacuum cleaner to get entangled with anything. And then it is our job to rescue the baby from dangers.

Time for a little history lesson. The first robot vacuum cleaner was invented by a person named James Dizon. They didn’t get much fame until 2014, these futuristic vacuums swept the market. Although very tiny in size, these robot vacuums make up almost 1/5th of the global vacuum cleaning market. Now that is huge.

The best-selling robot vacuum is known as the Roomba. Roomba holds approximately 70% of the total sales of robot vacuums which makes it a clear-cut market leader. Even with a hefty price tag of $300 per unit, iRobot has still managed to sell over 14 million units worldwide. More on that later..

People have been sharing some very hilarious stories about their cleaning fails and trust me, you won’t regret going through these. Scroll down below for some proper hilarity.

Colin Angle, the CEO, and co-founder of iRobot told TechCrunch in an interview that the number of Roombas they have sold clearly shows that the business that they have is very steady. iRobot also predicts that the future is all about artificial intelligence. And as we move into the future, the demand for smarter houses will increases, which will also raise the demand for vacuum robots.

Regardless of all the booming sales, the robot vacuums do have their disadvantage, which for us are created very hilarious situations.

Been 7 years and these robots still manage to make a fuss out of one job that they have. Still got a lot to work on.
