Today I’m doing something I’ve never done before:
A Review Post!
In the spirit of being transparent, I need to let y’all know that I have fallen in love with another man, and his name is Bob.
My husband hated him at first, but he quickly warmed up to the other man in my life.
For those wondering what this has to do with a review, we named our BobSweep vacuum, Bob.
*Pause for a hilarious story real quick.*
My mother also has a BobSweep named Bob. She told my grandma one day that Bob was vacuuming, and my grandma flipped out thinking my mother let some stranger into her house to vacuum.
*Okay back to the review*
I first heard about Bob at a bar of all places. These people had two beautiful dogs, a German Shepard and a Husky.
My husband jokingly asked how they kept up with the hair, and they told us they use a BobSweep, which is meant for Pet Hair.
This was the start of my love affair with Bob.
I started doing some research and found out there are so many places to get a BobSweep, so I did what any saver would do and I shopped around.
Finally I ordered the Bobsweep Pethair in Champagne last Black Friday off Groupon for a whopping $189.00.
Yes, I bought a robot vacuum for less than $200.
I’ll give you a minute to let that sink in.
I waited anxiously and was so excited to get my Bob. But my mother opened him, and then stole him.
So I made her order me another. (Yes, yall I MADE her. She stole my man and I was unimpressed)
When he finally came, I was so stoked.
Bob is pretty much all ready to go out of the box. There are a few things you have to do, but mostly he’s ready to go.
Also, Bob comes with a birth certificate and it is easily one of the best things I’ve ever seen.
But let’s get down to business and let me tell you all about Bob.
I’m going to start with Bob’s Pro’s and then move to the negative things about Bob.
The Pros of Bob
Bob can withstand a lot.
One of my dogs thinks this is her own personal play toy. She leaps on him and hits him on a constant basis, and yet Bob keeps on trucking along.
The suction power is ridiculous.
I think my house is clean a lot of the time because of my OCD.
I’ll usually vacuum and then when I run errands I’ll run Bob.
The amount of hair/dust that it picks up, even after I vacuum, is ridiculous.
Bob doesn’t have an issue with new areas.
Bob can switch from tile to carpet really easily. He doesn’t leave that weird hair spot like some vacuums do when they transition. Bob does equally as well on the carpet as he does on the tile.
My mom has super thick vinyl floors, and Bob does well on her floors as well.
Bob is super easy.
Bob is so user friendly it’s ridiculous. He also comes with a remote so you can control exactly where he goes.
Bob is a versatile little fellow.
Bob can become a robot mop as well. While I have yet to try this function, I’ve heard it’s amazing.
Bob also has a setting where he just follows the corners, which for me is awesome.
I always have those random corners that dog hair accumulates in, so Bob gets right in there and cleans it for me.
With the positive there is always some negatives. Bob isn’t perfect, he has flaws like all of us.
The Cons Bob’s Cons
Bob gets stuck on certain things.
I have a shag rug that is not Bob’s friend. Bob will instantly get stuck on it.
Also the cabinets in my kitchen are jusstttt the right height for Bob to get stuck under. My mom does not have this issue so it all depends on your cabinet height.
Bob sometimes goes over and over and over the same spot.
I’m not sure if this is a sensor issue, or what but he will go over the same area for quite some time before moving on.
Bob isn’t a quiet one.
For some people, it’s important for them to have a quiet vacuum. I honestly could careless about the sound because we run him when we aren’t home. But if that’s a thing for you, Bob is not the quietest one on the market.
If you have a lot of corners, or a cookie cutter home, Bob is not for you.
My mom’s house has a lot of turns in it, so Bob does not freely move around from room to room easily. My mom usually just let’s Bob loose room by room.
My house though is an open floor plan, so Bob can freely move around through the majority of the house. (Full Discloser: Bob does get caught up on one corner that I know is a sensor issues. He reads it as a wall so he stays away from it.)
The Final Verdict
All in All I love my Bobsweep.
There are a few different versions of Bobsweep, and like I said above I have the PetHair version.
The best part about this review is that it is coming out at the same time as a Groupon Sale.
I’m linking the Groupon below (just click on the image), so that you can grab yours for less than $200!
Hurry Up though because this sale ends on 7/17/18!
I hope that you enjoyed my first review!
