What’s New: Neato Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

Neato XV Signature Pro with dog image

How often do you vacuum? With two dogs and four cats, all in the house, we vacuum a LOT…and still we know we should vacuum more! Worst of all, we’re just not able to vacuum beneath much of the furniture, resulting in tumbleweeds of pet hair under the couch and the bed. (I know you know what I’m talking about!!)

We love our new vacuum from Neato Robotics®. The Neato XV Signature™ Pro  home robot vacuum methodically moves from room to room picking up pet hair, dander and debris of all kinds, even tiny particles like mold, spores and pollen. Using laser technology to map the room before it begins (like the Google car), the technology prevents it from bumping into furniture or falling down stairs, and leaves nice straight lines in carpet.

And when it runs low on power? It automatically returns to its charger, and then returns to the spot where it left off to finish the job. You can even schedule the Neato robot vacuum any time, any day whether you’re home or not.

Neato Robotics provided a review vacuum and one for giveaway.

  • goodboy_vs_badboy

    The room we vacuum the most is the bedroom. The pups spend so much time sleeping and teasing each other in there that it’s like a big hairball at times. Ugh. But we love them, so it’s all worth it! =) -Alexia Abby

  • Karen Zynger

    Living room! I need this so badly..I adopt abused animals but with having Fibromyalgia and spine issues, I can’t vacuum that often and there is always a covering of hair on the carpet in the whole house. Plus my vacuum cleaner is ancient so it unfortunately doesn’t work as well as it did. I can send you pics as proof
    that show how badly I need one of these! For me, winning this would be a god send.

    • ccsummer

      Blessed Be, Karen. I hope you win. I too rescue animals, some have been abused, all are seniors. Sending prayers out into the universe for your loving work.

    It has to be a tie between the kitchen and the family room/tv room because those two rooms are the ones that my dogs and visiting dogs are mostly in. So that always has a lot of hair and dirt on the floor.

    The room I vacuum most is our living room. Its the first room you see and the first you enter when you come in too so it collects the most dirt from the outside and therefore needs vacuumed more than the rest of the house it seems.

  • rene chartier

    The family room is a central area of our family life at home. Our St. Bernard wants to be with his family and the center of attention so he does shed wherever he goes and follows each of us. But of course we love him and it’s not a problem to constantly be vacuuming but I would love this vacuum it would be a big help.
