Have I told you about my new BFF? She's sleek, keeps my house squeaky clean, and has been a life changer. No, not Safari, but my new bObi Pet Robotic Vacuum Cleaner & Mop.
Since moving into our new house and having hardwood floors installed throughout, it has been difficult to keep up with all the cleaning. Who knew dust and hair would be so much easier to see on dark wood!?! Although we've loved every minute of having the hardwoods, our bi-weekly housekeeper just wasn't cutting it.
We started looking at robotic vacuums and comparing reviews, prices, and what each had to offer. We wanted something that was safe and gentle on the floors, and would't drive Safari too crazy. When I stumbled upon the bObsweep website, all my prayers were answered.
Almost a year ago, bObsweep unveiled a new product called bObi Pet. This small contraption is just under 4 inches, making it easy to slide under even the most challenging pieces of furniture. Also, unlike other robotic vacuums, bObi Pet mops and sanitizes. Can you say amazing? bObi has a UV light underneath that does the sanitizing, a mop attachment to leave your floors sparkling, and a HEPA filter which traps allergens and pet dander. This was a major plus for me since my allergies have gone bananas since moving to Houston.
Other pluses: You can customize her schedule, so she can do all the dirty work (no pun intended), at your convenience. You can also set up bObi blOck to create a digital barrier, 'roping' off sections of your home you want the vacuum to stay away from - whether that's breakable items, or somewhere where there are a lot of wires and cords that could get tangled in her bristles/brushes. blOck is included with all bObi Pet's, which is a great selling point - with other models, it is sold separately. But, what really made me pick bObi over other competitors, is that she can be moved from floor to floor, and has no issues. Most robotic vacuums require you to buy multiples, as they can only memorize one floor. Not bObi, she's got all four floors in our house covered - you go girl!
We've now had bObi at home with us for just about three weeks, and she's been working her tail off everyday, It is wonderful coming home to floors that are constantly clean, and we truly have no complaints - besides the fact that we wish we would have got one sooner. She has a great battery life, re-docks herself in her charging station when she needs 'juice,' and is completely self sufficient (besides emptying out all the dirt she picks up).
The jury is still out on how Safari feels - there's been a lot of barking involved to say the least.
P.S. This outfit has me so ready for Fall! I am obsessed with this tie neck sweater from Chicwish, and am loving these Mott & Bow jeans!
