The Deebot OZMO T8 AIVI easily fits into its predecessors’ big footsteps regarding the excellent suction performance.
What’s more: it even exceeds them!
Suction test on laminate
As usual, we spread three different kinds of dirt (lentils, oatmeal and sand) on the floor during our suction test.
Then we let the OZMO T8 AIVI deal with it in maximum cleaning mode.
The robot vacuum did a great job on the hard floor.
Test result for lentils:
It hardly reached its limits with the light lentils.
It only left a few grains in the corners (due to the robot vacuum’s round shape).
Test result for oatmeal:
The result was quite similar when it vacuumed oat flakes.
The Deebot OZMO T8 AIVI removed a whopping 97% of the dirt.
Test result for sand:
Sand is challenging for all robot vacuum cleaners due to its weight.
But not for the OZMO T8...
The OZMO T8 AIVI did an excellent job here, too, and removed approx. 93 % of the sand extracted.
Cleaning Performance on the carpet
The OZMO T8 AIVI has a very reliable carpet detection function.
With this, the OZMO T8 automatically switches to the highest power setting as soon as it drives onto a carpet.
The test results show that it works.
The robot vacuum came out with flying colours in our tests on both carpet types (low-pile and high-pile).
That makes the small household helper very suitable for living rooms with carpets.

Cleaning result on a low-pile carpet:
It was remarkable how it coped with the sand on the higher carpet.
Sand on a carpet is usually a dirty challenge for all vacuums.
The fine sand quickly sinks deep into the carpet fibres so that vacuum cleaners often have difficulties with removing it.
Nevertheless, the OZMO T8 AIVI performed well on the low-pile (68%) and high-pile carpet (78%) in our test.
These results catapult the robot vacuum to the premium models.
Don’t get confused by the "low percentages". Our tests simulate extreme situations. Since the robot vacuum cleans your home almost daily, it’s practically impossible that such a large amount of sand can accumulate on the carpet.
But the robot vacuum didn’t have any problems with the other two dirt types, either.
It removed 93% of the grainy lentils on the high-pile carpet.
It left just a few lentils in the corners.
The test result for oatmeal was even better.
The OZMO T8 AIVI achieved an excellent result of 95% here.
Vacuuming along skirtings and in corners
Every time the OZMO T8 AIVI goes on its cleaning trip, it also drives along the walls.
The robot vacuum can drive very close to the skirtings, thanks to precise navigation technology.
That’s how the side brushes can reliably remove the dirt and transport it towards the suction opening.
And what’s the cleaning result like in corners?
We placed a lot of lentils in a corner to test this.
Since the robot vacuum has a round shape, it can’t reach the corners entirely. Therefore, it can’t remove all the dirt in the corner.
However, not just the OZMO T8 AIVI struggles with that. All round-shaped robot vacuums reach their limits here.
D-shaped robotic vacuums can clean corners better, but they have many other disadvantages instead.
But you can take our word for it: if you have an automatic robot vacuum, it will clean your home much more often. Therefore, hardly any dirt will accumulate in the corners.
We use our robotic vacuum cleaner almost daily and vacuum the corners with a hand vacuum once a month at the most.
