Bobsweep Feature

Do you have certain thing that has been on your home’s wish list for quite some time? Ever since we purchased our home in 2009 I wanted a robot vacuum. Having a two story home with a basement that is covered in old carpet, I feel like I never get this house clean. While our old Dyson tries, it just can’t keep up with the mess. When Reya was introduced to our household last year the situation got a bit worse, especially with her being scared of the vacuum. In all honesty, I was starting to think I was going to have to give up and accept that my house was going to be filled with black and white fur for the next twelve – fifteen years. As I was giving up, I saw an advertisement for the BobSweep Pet Hair vacuum. While I had seen quite a few robot vacuums, I had never seen one especially designed for pet hair, or with so many other features. Immediately, I reached out to the company and was quite excited when they wanted me to test out one of their units and feature it on Budget Earth. With our dog currently shedding up a storm, I thought this was the perfect time to give the BobSweep a run for its money!

BobSweep Pet Hair: What is It

Tired of lugging around a heavy vacuum and still having dirty floors and pet hair everywhere after vacuuming? If so, we think you will love the BobSweep Pet Hair vacuum. This unique robot vacuum excels at dealing with pet hair, using an extra large brush and a large enough collecting capacity to make it perfect for cleaning rugs, carpets, and hardwood floors. Unlike other vacuums, it also sterilizes with a UV lamp to kill bacteria, and it even sweeps, and mops! With 3 layers of HEPA filtration it is perfect anyone who suffers from any type of allergies – we can tell you from our experience that there was no dust in the air while it was hard at work. Additionally, it is also RoHS cerified, a certification that has been adapted in Europe assuming that it is free of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls and polybrominated diphenyl ethers. With the BobSweep Pet Hair vacuum, cleaning has never been so easy and fun for everyone in your family (including pets!). To see how the BobSweep words, make sure to watch the video below!

BobSweep Pet Hair: Overall

When I first got ‘Bob’ (what else would we call our BobSweep?), I couldn’t wait to get him out of the box. My husband, however, was preparing himself for a major job when he heard that he was going to have to be assembled. To our surprise, assembly really was super easy – so easy that if I had known, I wouldn’t have asked him for help. We had the BobSweep together in less than five minutes and had him going across the carpet to drain him for his first charge. What amazed me was just how long it took for Bob to run out of juice. He was going for well over an hour and a half before he needed to go back to his charger, and this was after needing to be emptied multiple times. The amount of dirt and fur being picked up from the carpet was truly astounding. I actually couldn’t believe that what looked like clean carpet had so much fur and dirt. Now, I only trust the BobSweep Pet Hair vacuum to take care of our living room since it does such an amazing job picking up the everyday fur and dust that builds on our carpet. Since it so easy to use, I have it going every two to three days to make sure our carpet is as clean as possible.


What shocked me the most was Reya’s reaction to this vacuum. Previously Reya hated the vacuum and would cry the moment it turned on. Nothing is worse than seeing your 90 pound sweet dog run to her crate and hide from the big scary vacuum. While I had read on their website that pets like the BobSweep Pet Hair vacuum, it wasn’t one of those things I believed until I saw it. Now the only time she barks is if Bob gets in trouble and is caught on something – she went from hating the vacuum to wanting to help it. Now she lays on her bed and watches the BobSweep go about its business. Since it is so great about detecting objects it also goes completely around her, to Reya’s amusement.

After three weeks of use I don’t think we have a single complaint about the BobSweep; it does a fantastic job at everything. It has cleaned our carpets and the little bit of wood we had in our entryway. It truly is an excellent vacuum, and such a time saver for me. Based on our own experience with this little robot vacuum, I am delighted to give the BobSweep Pet Hair vacuum an A+ rating and heartily recommend it to any busy family or pet owner.

    This is much needed in our house.

    Costly little thing. But if you don’t keep up with the hair from pets it can clog other things like a room fan. It gets clogged, it breaks. I speak from experience.

    • Susan Bewley April 27, 2014 at 8:34 am - Reply

      Its costly, but I truly believe it when I say it is worth every penny. The fur very quickly builds up if you don’t take care of it and breathing it is even worse! It also makes you realize all the stuff your vacuum isn’t picking up with how much it picks up off the floor.

    Oh yes!!! We definitely need this. We have a Husky as well and our biggest pet peeve, pardon the pun, is the massive amounts of hair! Even with regular brush outs, our house often looks like there are “husky coat bunnies” scattered all over the house if I don’t vacuum everyday. But who wants to do that! I’m going to look into getting one of these, to keep me sane in the summer months! Thanks for sharing, I’m loving your blog!

    • Susan Bewley April 27, 2014 at 8:30 am - Reply

      So glad you like it, Katrina! Having something to manage the hair really is a god sent!

    How neat is this BobSweep, would be wonderful, Ilike that it does not upset your dog and that it has ultra violet rays to help kill bacteria and that it runs a long time on a battery charge, this is nice and would be wonderful, I wonder how it works with cat hair..

  6. md Kennedy April 26, 2014 at 1:26 pm - Reply

    So cool! I do need this badly to keep the carpets clean in between the weekly regular scruffing. I can see my cat wanting to ride around on it, though!

    i sure hope it works. it is smart idea.

    Wow- this sweeper sounds great! We have a long-haired Himalayan cat who leaves a trail of hair around the house! Sounds like the BobSweep could really help us

      It truly is amazing! I wish we had something like this when our long haired kitty lived inside!

    Oh boy, this is GREAT! You did an awesome job on the review. This is just what I need since I have 3 dogs. Although they are not suppose to be shedding dogs, I still find hair in all my rooms. This has really opened my eyes. I am going to think strongly on getting one. Thanks so much.

    • Susan Bewley April 27, 2014 at 8:25 am - Reply

      You are very welcome Marion! I am truly in love with vacuum. While our Dyson does a great job, Reya’s hair just overloads it. Its so great having something programmed to clean the floors every other day and get up that fine hair!

    I didn’t even know such a thing existed just for pet hair so thank you so much. Maybe if I’m good Santa will bring it to me 🙂 Great Review

    • Susan Bewley April 27, 2014 at 8:21 am - Reply

      Thanks Tamra. Its does normal vacuuming as well but is designed to pick up fine pet hair and allergens. I didn’t realize this until after I wrote the review but I’m having allergy issues inside since I started using this vacuum 🙂

      You are very welcome! I had never seen a vacuum in my life that dogs love but this one seems to be it! I am hoping to bring it in and see what my mother’s yorky thinks!

    Now this is what I need! I’ve got 2 long-haired cats in my house and it feels like a losing battle against the hair! This vacuum is going on my wish list!

    This would be such a help in my home! I have a long-haired cat who sheds like crazy and it’s such a pain to vaccuum everyday multiple times

  14. ANN*H April 26, 2014 at 11:13 pm - Reply

    Like the picture of your Husky. My son has one too. Lets lots of hair everywhere and it seems to always attach to your clothes. To pricey for my budget but would love to have one of these for our two cats hair clean up. thanks for the info

    Wow, this is awesome!I could really use this!

  16. Sandra VanHoey April 27, 2014 at 6:26 am - Reply

    I sure could use one with 2 dogs and 3 cats here just cannot afford one now. This sounds incredible and i know we are always vacuuming pet hair here

  17. Melissa S April 27, 2014 at 8:34 am - Reply

    I just showed this review to my husband, it would make a great Mothers Day gift. I have to vacuum once or twice a day due to our Australian Shepherd shedding. My present vacuum is the lightest one available but it still kills my back by the time I finish my whole house.

    • Susan Bewley April 27, 2014 at 8:37 am - Reply

      It truly is amazing! As another long haired dog owner, I will warn you though – when you first start your routine, it picks up A LOT of hair, so it means you will be having to empty the chamber a few times. Once I got it going every other day I had to only empty it when it finished but the amount of fur it picks up WILL disturb you a bit. It is just that good!

    What a pretty dog. I would love to have this vacuum cleaner. I’ve wanted one for a while. I’m basically really lazy and hate lugging out the cleaner all the time. This would be a big help. I could run it while going about other chores.I wish I could afford it!

    This sounds awesome, I have 2 dogs with short hair that she’d alot. This sounds great, I need something to help combat the dog hair. I hate lugging out the heavy duty vacuum everyday.

  20. Kristyn April 29, 2014 at 12:04 am - Reply

    i could really use this in my house! this def. sounds worth trying! my cat sheds like CRAZY and my brother has severe asthma so this could be really helpful! thanks!

  21. Brigid OHara Koshko April 30, 2014 at 5:00 am - Reply

    Love this! I have a lot of critters and I vacuum at least once a day. This would be a great time saver for me, unfortunately the price is mighty steep!

  22. polly April 30, 2014 at 3:02 pm - Reply

    We have a Golden Retriever and our entire downstairs is tile so I have to dust mop it daily because of dog hair. This would be awesome to have!

    Two gran-dogs and alot of hair and leaves and grass clippings that
    come into the house,~this would equal easy cleaning

  24. Michelle Salais May 1, 2014 at 12:52 pm - Reply

    This would be an awesome product to own. I have 3 dogs and 2 cats. So, I have hair everywhere in the house. As fast as I clean it up, it seems to return! The only thing is I can’t really afford that luxury. At $669 it’s too much for me to be paying. :/

    (BobSweep Pet Hair Review) I sure could use one of these in my house, I have this on cat that sheds all the time it seems. I could vacuum everyday with him in the house.

    Wow! This is cool. I have bad allergies, but love my furry friend. This may help get the hair that a vacuum just does not pick up!

    This is got to be the coolest sweeper ever. I could get my housework done so much quicker with this.

  31. ANN*H May 27, 2014 at 7:51 pm - Reply

    This would be wonderful to have at my house. Being older its hard to push vacuum cleaners around. With cats theres always cat hair laying on the rugs. So this would be of value to me .thanks for the review

  32. Kathy July 4, 2014 at 12:55 pm - Reply

    I don’t have a pet and just received the bobsweep. I don’t see the value in it at all. It doesn’t clean the whole room, the remote doesn’t work and it seems like something is missing. Oh yes a wand to vacum my furniture. I’m returning it.

    • Susan Bewley July 4, 2014 at 7:12 pm - Reply

      Sorry it didn’t work so well for you, Kathy. We still use a normal vacuum along side it but its great for high traffic areas in our house. It sounds like something may be wrong with your unit. Ours normally cleans a 14 x 16 room multiple times before it goes on to charge. I will admit, I have never used the remote that came with it so I can’t say anything in that area. It does have to be emptied multiple times if you do have a messy room. The first time we used it we had to empty it about 10 tens. Normally, with our big dog, we have to empty it 3 times during a half hour vacuuming due to all the long dog hair.

    Just recieved Bob. Bought from Groupon for $265.00. We have tried a Roomba 650 and was not pleased. We currently have a Neato xv 12 that we have used for 2 years but keep replacing batteries every 6 months and it doesn’t get corners or edges very well. With 2 dogs and 2 cats we really use it and it really cuts down on day to day cleaning. Can’t wait to see how Bob works.

    • Susan Bewley July 31, 2014 at 8:57 pm - Reply

      Tell me what you think Stan! We adore ours and can’t believe how much dog hair it picks up!

    So Bobsweep pethair does an amazing job cleaning. The company is what blew me out of the water. I’ve had it for about a year. Couldn’t go over one of my thick rugs so when I moved I got rid of it. I have all tile in my house for dogs and a cat who all constantly go in and out of my house tracking in dirt constantly. I run it once a day to once a week depending on how the floor looks/feels. So 11 months after buying it the wheel breaks. It lasted a long time I thought and now to make an investment into it and buy a new wheel. I knew it had been a little over or under a year when I purchased it from groupon! (amazing deal) I called up to see if they could help me because I never registered the product myself, turns out they did it for me. So now I just have to pay $6 shipping for a brand new wheel oh and they sent me both just in case the other wheel cracks. Robert is the gentleman who aided me on the phone. I am seriously impressed with this company. Great product, and a company that stands behind them.
