In our extensive cleaning reviews, we put the suction performance of the Ecovacs Deebot OZMO 950 through its paces.
We spread lentils, sand, and oat flakes on hard floors and carpets (low-pile and high-pile). Then we waited how the robot vacuum would cope with our dirty challenge in maximum suction mode.
A few details of the Ecovacs Deebot OZMO 950:
4 different cleaning modes (Quiet, Standard, Maximum, and Maximum+)
1500 Pa. suction power at the highest suction level "Maximal+".
- 430 ml capacity of the mobile dust container
High-efficiency filter (HEPA filter) is included
2 side brushes are installed
Main brush consists of lamellas and hard bristles
- Special suction attachment (without brush) for hair is included in delivery
Suction review on laminate
In the beginning, the Deebot OZMO 950 got down to business on the laminate.
Review result for lentils (47 g of 50 g absorbed | 94%)
The little household helper did a pretty good job of cleaning up the lentils on hard floors.
A negative side effect while cleaning the lentils was that the grainy, light lentils were somewhat scattered around due to the rotation of the side brushes.
Nevertheless, the Deebot OZMO 950 was able to remove an outstanding 94% of the dirt.
Review result for oat flakes (45 g of 50 g removed | 90%)
The robot vacuum removed almost everything of the second type of dirt (oat flakes), too.
Here we noticed, too, that the side brushes caused some scattering of a few oat flakes.
Review result for sand (46 g of 50 g removed | 92%)
The cleaning results of the sand were particularly good.
The OZMO 950 did an extremely thorough job in this review.
The robot vacuum only left 4 g of sand behind.
Deebot OZMO 950 in the suction review on carpets
From our experience, we can tell you that carpets are a greater challenge for the robot vacuum cleaner.
Especially on high carpets, the dirt quickly sinks deep into the carpet.
That’s why it’s rather difficult for robotic vacuums to remove the dirt.
The OZMO 950 is equipped with an automatic carpet detection function, which improves its performance.
It never had a problem with detecting the carpeted area and the robot automatically increased the suction power to the maximum level when it moved over carpets.
This works flawlessly, regardless of whether it is a small runner or larger carpets.
Suction review result on low-pile carpet
Suction review result on high-pile carpet
The Ecovacs Deebot OZMO 950 performed extremely well in our suction review on carpets.
The Ecovacs vacuum robot didn’t have any problems with removing lentils.
It came out with flying colours on both short and long fiber carpet and removed 49 g (98%) of the lentils.
For oatmeal, the review result was also very good.
94% on short carpet and 96% on long fiber carpet are over-the-top results.
What’s more: Neither oat flakes nor lentils were scattered around on the carpets (short / long fiber) by the side brushes.
The last challenge that we put the Ecovacs Deebot OZMO 950 through in our vacuum review was to face the heavy sand.
And that’s where the robotic vacuum cleaner shows what it’s got: The cleaning result of heavy sand on the carpet was outstanding.
Hardly any other robot vacuum achieves similar top results here!
Short pile carpet: review result for sand (35 g out of 50 g | 70 %)
High-pile carpet: review result for sand (40 g out of 50 g | 80 %)
Conclusion of the cleaning review
The Ecovacs Deebot OZMO 950 came out with flying colors on carpets. On short and long pile carpets, the review result was above average.
If you have a lot of carpeted floors at home, the Deebot OZMO 950 is a very good choice!
But the performance was also very good on hard floors.
A small drawback was that the rotation of the side brushes caused that very light dirt was scattered around from time to time.
Nevertheless, the overall cleaning result achieved a total of 90%, which is very good.
Ecovacs Deebot OZMO 950 for everyday cleaning
In addition to our detailed reviews, we also observed the Deebot OZMO 950’s performance very closely during everyday cleaning in our flat.
Here, the robotic vacuum cleaner from Ecovacs was very convincing.
Operating the vacuum cleaner is easy-peasy. You just have to open the app, select the rooms to be cleaned and press the start button.
From what we’ve seen, the cleaning result of everyday dirt was very convincing.
You can choose between different cleaning levels
You can select 4 different levels of suction power. (Quiet, Standard, Maximum, and Maximum+).
On the lowest suction level, the robot is super quiet and the suction power is also lower.
The names of the cleaning modes sound so impressive ?. For whatever reason, the manufacturer always comes up with new names.
Nevertheless, we think it’s a great plus that you can choose between 4 different power levels.
The manufacturer states that the Deebot OZMO 950 has a suction power of approx. 1500 Pa at the highest suction level (Maximum+). This is quite a decent value.
The cleaning results of everyday floor cleaning in our flat with a size of 80 m² (no children, no pets, only hard floors) were really good in the "Standard" suction mode.
If you live in a larger household, we recommend selecting the "Maximum" or "Maximum+" suction mode.
The dirt container and HEPA filter
The dirt container has a capacity of 430 ml.
If the dirt container is full, the OZMO 950 will pause and you’ll receive a notification to empty the dust bag via the App.
Some models have a larger dirt container. From our experience, the size of the OZMO 950 is completely sufficient.
We could vacuum our flat with a size of 80 m² 3-5 times until the dirt container had reached its limits.
The dirt container has a practical handle, with which you can insert and remove it very easily. It also comes in very handy for the transport to empty the dirt container.
The dirt container has a small "dirt retention lid", which ensures that the dirt cannot escape during transport to the trash.
A small disadvantage of the dirt retention lid: During the review, we noticed that small amounts of dirt get stuck because of the lid so they won’t reach the dust container.
Then you only have to push a red button to empty the dirt container above the trash.
Advantage for allergy sufferers: The dirt container is well designed so that there is no contact with the dirt - neither during removal, transport, emptying, or reinsertion.
You can tell that Ecovacs UK has put a lot of thought into this and wanted to improve the experience for allergy sufferers. We think the manufacturer hit a sweet spot here.
A high-efficiency filter (HEPA filter) is attached to the dirt container of the Deebot OZMO 950.
This ensures that the air will be cleaned of fine dust before it will be discharged again.
This is an essential feature, especially for allergy sufferers.
The HEPA filter can be detached very easily from the dirt container so you can tap it out over the sink or trash.
Our cleaning tip: We recommend washing the filter on a monthly basis. To do this, you just have to remove the filter and hold it under running water.
Please make sure that the HEPA filter is completely dry before you put it back in. Usually, 24 hours is long enough.
The main brush
The main brush contains rubber blades and bristles. This design has become a standard for most of the common robot vacuum cleaner models.
Dirt (especially on carpets) can be loosened and vacuumed much more effectively with the help of the bristles.
The 2 side brushes
The Deebot OZMO 950 has two side brushes, unlike many models of competitors, which have only one.
It can't hurt to have another side brush. However, we didn’t notice any significant improvements during our cleaning reviews compared to the performance of robotic vacuum cleaners with one side brush.
