This Is How My Life Changed Thanks To A Robot Vacuum...

the story of my robot vacuum

Living in a house with a husband, three teenagers, a cat and a golden retriever definitely has its challenges. Don’t get me wrong, I love them all dearly, but a few months after the arrival of our dog all I could see were the big tufts of pet hair lingering in every corner of the house. At first I would courageously take out the hoover to clean it all up, only to find more hair a couple of hours later. I was so frustrated! My husband must have been tired of all my lamenting, because he got me the greatest gift of all this last Christmas! A robotic vacuum cleaner! DeeDee has only been a part of our family for a couple of months, but I already can’t imagine living a life without her. 

My pets and the robovac

Although at first our pets weren’t that happy with the intruder, they quickly understood that DeeDee was there to help and didn’t mean them any harm. Our cat still hides somewhere until vacuuming is done, but my dog feels a lot happier now that he gets shouted at less for shedding too much hair…

Life-changing robot vacuum

Having a robovac cleaning my house has definitely made me a nicer person. Seriously, you have no idea how happy I am every time I get home after work to find a clean house. I must admit it took me some time to grasp all the details of the companion app, but once I got the hang of it, I was able to program a cleaning schedule. DeeDee does one big clean of our whole downstairs level at night while everyone’s at sleep. No one has ever complained about the noise and I know my dog dozes off more quickly when DeeDee’s zooming around. She’s set to vacuum a couple of rooms again before everyone gets back from school or work. And when I need her to do some spot cleaning in the kitchen after the kids’ snack, I just ask DeeDee to start cleaning. Yes, the thing is connected to Alexa!

I know robot vacs don’t exactly come cheap, but having DeeDee around and witnessing what she can do has convinced me she’s worth every penny. Time is money they say, and I’ve been able to get so much more done. 

You will never regret your cleaning robot

Believe me, you’ll never regret getting a robovac, it’s an awesome thing, it’s total bliss. I wish I got one sooner!
