Fluffy dog owners rejoice! There’s now robot vacuum cleaner specifically built for dog hair.
That’s right a ROBOT vacuum cleaner for pet owners. We have officially entered the age of the Jetsons and this cleaner is ready to pick up all of Astro’s fur.
Say hello to my little friend, the Neato Pet Vacuum.
The Neato XV-21 Pet and Allergy Vacuum is made up of a small wall unit which plugs into your power outlet, and Neato himself – the compact vacuum on wheels.
Neato scans his surroundings with an inbuilt infrared laser that gives him a highly accurate 360° map of the room he’s in -including any obstacles.
He then embarks on a cleaning frenzy in a pattern of straight, overlapping lines.
With a special bristle and blade brush and the strongest suction of any robot vacuum cleaner, the Neato vacuum picks up pet hair and dander like nobodies business – making is perfect for allergy sufferers.
Whether it’s on pile carpets or smooth floors, the Neato ensures when he leaves a room it’s dog hair free.
The Neato’s battery life lasts for one hour before he returns to his home unit to continue charging.
Best part is he’s smart enough to realise when he’s running low on power and always makes it home in time to charge up to continue any left over cleaning.
The Neato pet vacuum may be tough on pet hair, but he’s very pet friendly.
Soda has always been scared of our larger (manual use – ugh no more!) vacuum. Whenever we turn it on, she runs outside.
However the Neato didn’t phase her in the slightest. It emits a low suction/whirring sound as it works the room, yet is quiet enough not to disturb you or your pets.
Neato’s built in sensors also make sure he never run into other obstacles – including your pets.
He’s like a cool visitor that helps with chores but doesn’t go around bothering everyone. In fact, he almost becomes like another pet…before long you’ll find yourself saying “Good Boy Neato! You cleaned the house!”
The #1 thing I loved the most about the Neato was that you are able to schedule the vacuum to clean whenever you want to.
Simply set a schedule and Neato will clean at any interval you want – daily, or a few times per week. Need a quick clean up? Simply select ‘Spot Clean’ and Neato will spring straight into action.
This means that once Neato is set, you get to go about enjoying your life while Neato ensures you come home to a clean house every single time.
All that time you used to spend vacuuming up pet hair? You can now spend it walking your dog, getting a pedicure or writing that novel. Win!
