Life is pretty busy with 4 kids, not to mention one of those being a newborn. Thankfully she is very cruisy and just fits in with the rest of us, so far anyway. The house has been full of people and as anyone with a big family knows this also comes a large amount of mess.
You know what I’m talking about. It is not just toys, clothes or even food; it is the constant trail of dirt, flowers, grass and anything else they want to bring in from outside. I feel like I am constantly cleaning! The vacuum may as well find a home in the living room because it is there more than it is in the cleaning cupboard.
I recently received an email from Crazy Sales asking if I would be interested in collaborating with them on a review and product giveaway. I jumped straight onto their site to see what goodies they had to offer. I immediately thought, ‘what will potentially make my days easier and less stressful’? Something that cleans for me would be ideal but I very much doubt they would have a robotic vacuum. I was wrong! They actually had a few robotic vacuum cleaner options and so the comparison research between them began.
After much deliberation, I decided on the 7-in-1 Robot Vacuum Cleaner because it received the best reviews. When it arrived, I was stunned that it came fully assembled and the lithium battery had enough charge that I could give it test run before letting it completely charge, as everything these days seems to require a complete charge before you can use it. I will be honest and say I was expecting something of the ‘cheap’ variety but it was pleasantly surprised with the quality.
The 7-in-1 robot vacuum (aka Robi as the kids have named it) has a range of modes, they include: Auto, Spot, Wall Follow and Dock. The features of this machine also say that it can mop and disinfect but I haven’t used these options yet so I cannot comment on how well they work. I can however tell you that the auto vacuum mode works well and does so unsupervised.
It transfers from tiles to carpet and back again with no intervention and does a good job on both. I wouldn’t use it for my big bi-weekly clean but it is great for everyday tidy ups as it makes the job smaller and more manageable. I have found that it doesn’t quite make it right into the corners of a room but overall ‘Robi’ does a pretty good job. The big bonus is you don’t actually have to do anything and when the battery starts to get low, the vacuum will return to the dock to charge.
It apparently has an intelligent anti-collision feature however I find that it runs into everything before it turns away. This is not a big deal for me though as the bumper is soft enough that it ensures no damage is done to the furniture. The bin is extra-large and easy to remove which means I don’t have to constantly be emptying it. Robi offers more features than I will ever need but they are there if I ever want them. Overall the 7-in-1 vacuum does a pretty good job for a machine that operates solo.
