This is a versatile vacuum cleaner and it does a very good job at vacuuming, mopping and sterilizing hardwood surfaces, as well as carpets. The major drawback is the fact that it doesn't come with a virtual wall or boundary markers.
This cleaner has one of the longest run time among other models in its price range. This unit can run for about 120 minutes on full charge. When it runs out of batteries, it recharges itself and the whole process won’t take more than 2 hours. However, even though it may seem like it takes a lot of time, it’s not that troublesome because there’s no need to track it down and recharge it yourself so this could be a plus. The filters that gather dust and debris should be changed regularly, but luckily for you, they are not expensive at all. It won’t cost you more than $40 per year. The total annual cost is $108, which is fairly reasonable.
There are many features that come with this BObsweep cleaner. The thing that actually sets apart this model from other comparable products is the fact that it vacuums, sweeps, mops and sterilizes a surface in the same time so it’s like a multi-functional and versatile cleaning device. You can set this device to run for an entire week and use all kinds of different programs and functions for each day that passes. For example, the spot-cleaning function is a great addition here, because it directs the vacuum into a specific messy area that needs to be cleaned more precisely. Vacuum cleaners are generally very noisy and they may interfere with your daily activities. Fortunately, small robot cleaners like the BObsweep (60 dB) are quiet and they provide little disturbance, so you can even use it to clean the living room floor or bedroom while you’re sitting in the couch watching TV or listening to music.
If your house is done with hardwood floors, this device could be exactly what you are looking for. It also does a good job at cleaning carpets but it’s more suitable for hard surfaces because it can vacuum, mop and sterilize the surfaces at the same time. Not many vacuum robots give you the option to vacuum and mop at the same time, so this is surely a strong selling point.

Controlling this unit can be done relatively easy, via a remote control but you have to be there to control the unit, otherwise, it won’t work if you are in another room. Other than that, this model is easy to handle and control and because it’s lightweight it makes it easy to carry to another room that needs cleaning. As other comparable products in its price range, this model also comes with infrared sensors, like the dirt sensor which directs the unit into the area that needs to be vacuumed or mopped and the ledge sensor that is specially designed to prevent the device from bumping into the walls.
The only downside of opting for the BObsweep model is the fact that it lacks in features. It doesn’t come with a virtual wall or boundary markers that could be very useful if you want to deny access to specific rooms in the house. Regarding the design, this is one of the most modern and stylish products on the consumer market. It has an impeccable white exterior and it looks small and light but the unit itself is made of good-quality materials so it’s definitely made to last. What makes this device such a popular choice is the fact that it has a very large dust bin capacity. This is a great feature because there’s no need to empty the dust bin as often.
Concerning customer service, you should know that the support services offered by the company are very good, even for those of us who are new to robot vacuum cleaners and need to learn more about their features, performance and so on. Once you have purchased the BObsweep model you will receive a 1-year warranty but make sure to register online if you want to activate the warranty trial.
