Cleaning is a necessity but it doesn’t mean that it’s a fun job. It’s even less desirable when you have body pain and/or physical limitations. No matter how you look at it it’s a job that must get done.

What are some reasons that I hate to vacuum?
- my lower back pain limits movement
- the vacuum is heavy to carry up and down the stairs
- I have to push furniture out of the way
- multiple tools required (vacuum, broom, mop) for same floor
- pets hide in fear
- a hassle to clean out dust bin
I recently ordered (and received) the bObi Classic Robotic Vacuum Cleaner and Mop. It actually came at the most opportune moment for me as I have been suffering greatly from lower back pain. I must confess, I am horrible when it comes to reading and following instructions; I prefer to figure things out as I go. This is exactly what I did! It was extremely easy to unpack and prepare bObi for use. After charging bObi, all that’s left to do is switch it on and press GO!
Can I just shout out one thing? I no longer have to bend over to clean under any furniture … especially the bed! Yay!What do you have to do? You must ensure that there aren’t any wires/cords on the floor, and any other items that might get sucked up in error. Once that is complete, all you have to do is get out of the way … or not! You don’t have to worry about anything because bObi will just go around you! It senses any objects and avoids them. Once the task has been completed, bObi just goes back to its dock to recharge! So simple.What’s fabulous? The absolute best thing is that neither of my three cats are frightened by bObi! I used to avoid vacuuming when my cats were in the room because I would end up scaring them. With bObi my cats are relaxed and even entertained, all while bObi vacuums, sweeps, and mops! There’s a small pad that you can wet so that the bObi can immediately mop the area and then it sweeps the area. This is perfect for kitchen and bathroom floors.The remote control allows you to set up bObi for 7 days a week with different programs. The fun doesn’t end there! The dust bin is one of the largest that I have ever seen; I only have to empty it after a few vacuum sessions. The bObi knows when it’s time to head back to the charging station, and does so before the battery completely drains. If the job hasn’t been completed it will auto-resume provided that no other tasks are scheduled.Setbacks? I found one setback (if you can consider it a setback). You actually have to dump out the dust bin. What’s wrong with that you ask? Well, if you have to dump out the dust bin then you would have exposed yourself to any allergens. Personally, I don’t really mind or get affected; however, my partner has asthma-induced allergies and can’t be exposed to allergens. That means I’m the only one who can clean out the dust bin!
Small price to pay because there aren’t any other issues.
