Robotic vacuums are nothing new, in fact they have lost the edge of being new and innovative and become just another gadget people have. And I never wanted one, I truly had zero interest. Not because I heard the horror stories of dog mess being smeared all over my house, but because I did not see how they could truly help me all that much and then I met Neato.
You see my brilliant husband, who often knows what I need and want even before I do, thought a robot vacuum would be a welcome addition to our house. He knows how crazy busy I am running after 5 kids and working 3 part time jobs and he wanted to help. He spoke to people who owned different brand and the clear winner was Neato brand, ironically a brand neither of us was familiar with.
Well Neato has become my new best friend and here are the top 5 reasons.
- My house gets vacuumed twice a day and I don’t have to do it.
- Places I rarely vacuum like under the couch and under the bookshelf get vacuumed daily because Neato is small and has a great knack for getting in and out of tight spaces.
- My kids pick up their stuff because if Neato vacuums then they don’t have to
- My kids also pick up their stuff because if Neato vacuums it up they loose it.
- I can multitask like no other. Yesterday I did the dishes while Neato vacuumed the family room and I knew it was getting done right, not a halfway job by a child still learning mom approved the definition of a clean floor.
- My house stays cleaner because I run Neato daily. Having a robot vacuum motivates me to stay on top of the messes so cleaning up for a vacuum run is a breeze.
- I can run my vacuum from anywhere, I don’t even have to be home and I know it will do it’s job and do it well.
- It does not freak out my dog!!!
I have the Neato D5 and it has some great features that make it superior to others. The Neato D5 is laser guided so it maps my house and doesn’t constantly trash my furniture bumping into things. The Neato D5 can be run by pushing a button, asking Alexa to run Neato or from the app. I can draw no go lines on the app so Neato doesn’t go where I don’t want or I can put down the strips it comes with. Neato D5 has a great allergy filter and can navigate tight spaces and even get unstuck if that happens. Neato D5 has 2 modes and will return to base and recharge then finish cleaning if it is a really long job.
I have been so impressed with the Neato D5 and am very glad my husband got this for me! It is a higher price tag making it a big investment (my husband watched sales and got a Christmas door buster) but it truly is worth it!
