Don’t Bother Me; I Am Vacuuming - Why You Need A Botvac Too
February 04, 2015 • Product Reviews •
Don’t bother me; I am vacuuming.
A robotic vacuum by any other name would still be The Botvac Neato. This is a real workhorse! I don’t always read directions (just ask my husband) so did not know I was to charge my Botvac for 12 hours so after placing it on the charger for awhile, I set it to take off around my kitchen of hard wood floors.
My dogs were curious and boxer Jake thought it was a toy; he was dissuaded in chasing it after one firm ‘leave it.’ The rest of the morning he ignored it while my black Lab, Junior, never gave it a glance. It’s not every day you get to sit back and relax while your floors are being cleaned. I like it a lot.
I like the one straight edge, which allows the Botvac to get in to corners, brilliant! And I finally did read the easy to follow instructions and after about an hour of cleaning, I fully charged and programmed the unit for day two of cleaning.
While working in my home office I heard a delightful sound and then the whirring of an energetic Botvac cleaning my living room where carpet and hardwood floors were waiting. The Botvac seamlessly traveled from wood to carpet without a hitch and the carpet still looks newly vacuumed two days later.
Cleaning the lint trap is simple and because of the dog and cat hair in our home, I was a bit pro-active and did not wait for Botvac to alert me and changed it when I felt it was time. Heading back to my office to work I forgot all about the Botvac until I heard a melodious sound which prompted me to see where the little guy was. The Botvac had found its own way back to the charging station and settled in for the night. Amazing.
Equipped with a larger main brush and dustbin and a side brush to get closer to walls, tests show it is the most effective robotic vacuum to clean up pet hair. It is safe for daily vacuuming and safe on all floor types.
Sold at dozens of retailers including Target, JcPenney, Lowe’s, Walmart, Costco, Bed, Bath & Beyond and more. $399+
