Due to the huge popularity of the best cordless vacuum cleaners and best robot vacuum cleaners, there's not a lot that the industry hasn't already seen. It's an exciting time for home cleaning tech, with many brands releasing models that do a lot more than a simple suction. 

One example of this is the launch of Shark's new Matrix Robot, a powerful cleaning device that combines suction and Sonic Mopping to effortlessly tackle dirt, pet hair and stubborn stains on both carpets and hard floors.
