I can’t believe that it took me this long to get a Neato XV-11 robotic vacuum cleaner. The Neato is simply the best invension since scliced bread! I simply schedule it to automatically start cleaning after I’ve left the house and when I come home after work, my carpets have that freshly vacuumed look. Best thing is, I didn’t have to do it myself – my Neato did!
Initially, when I got the Neato, its dustbin got full even before it completed a room. It’s not really an issue, as it’s quite painless to clean it out but I couldn’t schedule it and leave it to clean without me being there to empty out the dustbin when it got full. I’ve now let it clean my floors for a few times and each time I’m amazed at the amount of dust, debris and pet hair that it manages to suck up. My floors are now clean enough that the Neato can run daily and do the whole house on one dustbin.
What’s quite amazing is that it effortlessly moves from carpet to thicker carpet to loose rug to tiles to vinyl. It cleans brilliantly on all surfaces – it might be a bit noisy on the hard floor surfaces. To be quite honest, it sounds like a helicopter but when it’s cleaning on the carpet, it is not too loud. We can actually watch TV while the Neato is doing its thing in the same room.
