Bobsweep robot vacuum cleaner functionality

The "All-of-the-Above" Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Bobsweep is an all-of-the-above miracle worker! Are you tired of ringing out dirty old mops and never being fully satisfied after emptying the dustpan? Being a 4 in 1 robotic floor cleaner, Bobsweep can multitask and get the job done like no other robot’s business!


Just let him go and he will vacuum your carpets, sweep and mop your floors to an impressive finish. As easily as this smart cleaner transitions from hardwood floor to carpet and back again, he instantly knows which mode to switch to in order to get you the best result for every different surface. He will also sterilize your floors as he uses his unique UV light, which is a very distinct bonus of disinfecting and killing bacteria without any harmful chemicals. Your children and pets are now safer than ever before. All the while you are able to rest and not worry about the housework being done; Bobsweep is an independent and hard-working robot vacuum cleaner that will take on the burden for you.


Smart Transitioning on Different Floor Types

Bobsweep's sensors allow him to detect what type of surface he is on and will shift his cleaning mode accordingly. For example, while vacuuming on carpet Bob will move a bit slower and use more power to really pull up what has been buried in the carpet fibers; when he transitions to hardwood however, Bobsweep will immediately adjust to the appropriate speed and power for that surface. Bobsweep is able to climb about 2 centimeters when transitioning between surfaces, which makes him one of the most versatile vacuum cleaning robots in the market. This being said, please keep in mind that not every time Bobsweep encounters a transition, does he decide to move over to the next area. Sometimes, he avoids making the transition to clean his current area further before moving on.

Tassels & Fringes: The Robotic Chimney’s Sweep!

Traditional vacuums, and even most automated robot vacuum cleaners have a limit to where they can reach. Then you have to put the extra effort into reaching under the table to get the remaining dust bunnies left behind, which, let’s face it, none of us have the time or energy to do.

This is where Bob-sweeps in (pun intended), to save your back form bending over to clean again. This machine comes fully equipped with not only an extra large main brush, but also a side brush to reach the unreachable dust at the corners.

There is no more need to reach under the couch and T.V. stand, or wonder what could possibly be lingering under your bed while you're laying over it. Bobsweep will sweep away those worries for you. Please keep in mind however that this doesn't mean Bobsweep can reach every single spot on your floors. There is, after all, a limit to everything!



Autonomy, Autonomy, Autonomy: Programming and Charge-Up

The independence of Bobsweep robot vacuum cleaner really shows in its automatic programming and charge-up features. Once you bring Bobsweep home, you can program it to clean at your desired schedule. Whether 3 times a week or everyday, you just pick the time and the days and Bobsweep will take care of the rest--no traditional vacuum cleaner out there that can do this for you!

Even better, after Bobsweep finishes cleaning at his regularly scheduled time, he will make his way back to his home charger all on his own and begins re-charging for next time. Try not to pick Bobsweep up while he is working or he might become slightly disoriented and not find his way back to his charger as quickly; and if you want to charge him manually just turn him off before picking him up. You can manually charge Bobsweep by plugging the adapter directly into his side inlet, or you can take him to his home charger and place him on it. If that's the case, make sure that he is securely connected to the charging apparatus when you do so. If you want Bobsweep to find his charge-up station automatically, please give him time to do so at his own slow pace. If you are around and want Bob to get back home immediately and without searching, simply guide him with his remote or put him to charge manually.  

Hard-to-clean Spots


Distinct to Bobsweep is his ability to detect and thoroughly clean those hard-to-get spots on the floor. When his sensors detect a dirty spot he automatically knows to switch into ‘spot cleaner’ mode, and will proceed to go over and over that spot in a zig-zag or spiral pattern to clean more effectively. Bobsweep may not render every spot on your floor shining, but it is incredible how much dirt he can pick up from your floors. Even if used on floors that appear clean to you, bobsweep picks up the dirt that you never thought existed at all. You will only believe it once you open Bobsweep's dustbin and witness what Bobsweep has collected off your seemingly-clean floors!

The Room: Big or Small the Job is Done

With an efficient rechargable Lithium-ion battery, Bobsweep robot vacuum is able to clean no less than one hour and up to 90 minutes at a full charge. This is while many robot vacuum cleaners can only last 20 minutes.

The battery in most robot vacuums is either NiCd or NiMH. These use material like Nickel and Cadmium  which are considered hazardous to human health and also the environment. Bobsweep is RoHS-certified and its Li-ion battery uses the same technology as your cell-phone or laptop's battery. Having a long life cycle, Bobsweep cleans hundreds of times before needing a new battery, and that is all you will need to do—change the battery. It is easily replaced. If there is any problem with your battery within the first six months, we will replace it for you for free.


Spot Cleaner and Remote

Also distinct to Bobsweep is his targeting sensors, which will detect and thoroughly clean those hard-to-get spots on the floor. When a dirty spot is marked Bobsweep automatically knows to change gears and go into ‘spot cleaner’ mode. He will proceed to go over and over that hard-to-clean spot with zig-zag motions to clean it better.

The remote that accompanies your intelligent floor cleaner is useful, entertaining, and a way to "spot-clean" on your command. Just push a button and Bobsweep will come to you! You can control this vacuum cleaning robot just like you would a remote control car. So if you want Bobsweep to vacuum the spot where your cat was laying (and shedding) a few times over, just direct him to do so using his remote.


Stairs, Walls, and Chairs oh My!


Bobsweep is not one of those robotic vacuum cleaners that you have to follow around fearing it would fall down the stairs or damage your precious cherry-wood furniture.

Bobsweep robotic vacuum has smart sensors on the sides of his body and an advanced self-navigation system that keeps him form colliding with most obstacles. This vacuum robot’s navigation system also comes fully equipped with edge sensors so Bobsweep will never take any unexpected plummets down your stairs. Instead, he constantly sends out infrared sensors so he knows to switch directions and clean alongside the stairs.

Bobsweep detects walls and most furniture unless they are really dark in colour. Good news is that Bobsweep comes with protective robber that can be attached to his front-bumper to reduce the impact with the obstacles that he misses. 

Size Matters!

You'll see why in a minute...

Bobsweep itself comes in a compact size; it fits under most standard furniture. At the same time, he is able to rise up to 2cm in order to transition onto different floor surfaces and get out of sticky situations. This robot vacuum cleaner has two wheels that are height-adjustable and equipped with shock absorbers under his belly and a fully rotating front wheel. Bobsweep uses the extra-thrust ability of his back wheels to power himself over the precarious cords while the front wheel rotates and wiggles free, reducing the chance of entanglement. Of course, the deeper the pile of cords, the more difficult this task will be. So help Bobsweep help you, and make sure his path is as clear as it can be.

Yet, Bobsweep has super-sized brush and dustbin; the dust and pet-hair trapping ability of Bobsweep vacuum cleaning robot surpasses almost every other robot sweeper on the market. Bobsweep’s main belly brush is almost 2 times the size of most other robot vacuums' brushes, and his dust and dander compartment holds up to 1 liter whereas most competitors only hold around 0.3 liters. This means you don’t have to worry about emptying the compartment after every clean like you would with some vacuum cleaning robots.



Vacuum-cleaning can never be "quiet"; but it can be quieter!. Bobsweep is not nearly as noisy as traditional vacuum cleaners. Furthermore, you have the luxury of being away when the vacuuming is done! Yes, you are finally free to let your vacuum cleaner do all of the work while you are away and come home for a luxurious, stress-free nap!
