Mama’s New Helper: DEEBOT OZMO 610 – Robot Vacuum Review

Disclosure:  I received a free DEEBOT OZMO 610 for review.  Affiliate links may be contained herein.  The opinions are my own.

Over the years I’ve had the chance to review a LOT of great products, including cleaning products and tools, but I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited about a product review than I am about the ECOVACS DEEBOT OZMO610 2-in-1 Multi-Surface Vacuuming and Mopping Robot.  This is robot vacuum has become a LIFE SAVER at my house!

A few months ago, I wrote a post about cleaning the floor, and I specifically talked about how having a baby, especially one who is now crawling around, multiplies your need to clean the floor a hundred times over.  (And yet, when you have a baby, your time for cleaning seems to be cut in half, or worse!)  But with the DEEBOT OZMO 610, I am able to clean the floor every day!

Here are a few features I love:

  • Remote control or automatic control.
  • Quiet when running.
  • Easy set up via your cell phone or mobile device.
  • Schedule your robot to clean on specific days and time.
  • Works on any hard surface or carpet.
  • Features a place to put liquid cleaner for mopping.
  • Easy to open.
  • Smart navigation and returns home.

The ability to schedule your cleaning is key for us.  Between 5pm and 6pm, I am always giving the baby his dinner, and so I’ve got the vacuum set up to run at 6pm.  It starts off in the kitchen; meanwhile I pick up Thaxton’s toys in the living room, so that it can clean in there and our hallway next.  (By the way, Thaxton loves the vacuum too.  He’s scared of other vacuums and appliances that make noise, but he loves to sit in his Pack n Play or his Jumperoo and watch the vacuum do its thing!)

I usually have the other rooms closed off, but once or twice a week, I make sure there’s no clutter in the floor of those rooms so that it may run in there as well, and I also try to use the mopping function about once a week.  It just takes a minute to put a little cleaner in DEEBOT, and I love being able to smell the fresh cleaner as he mops in our kitchen.

DEEBOT is also have easy to empty.  We have messy pets and people in our home, so I empty DEEBOT after each use, and I am always amazed at how much trash has been picked up.  When I see how much trash there is (especially if we let DEEBOT skip a day or two), it actually freaks me out a little bit, and I can’t believe we used to vacuum only once a week!

This is an amazing product!  I am so pleased with how much cleaner my floors are, and I am thrilled that it’s able to happen without me having to do a bunch of work or take a lot of time of my day!

This product is available at Target and other retailers, and I definitely recommend it!

 

 

 

7 Tips to Care for Your Hardwood Floors

Living Room

If you’re looking to remodel, home flooring is a great place to start.  I personally recommend hardwood floor or engineered wood flooring.  Hardwood floors are a great investment, as they add so much aesthetic and monetary value to your home.  They also go great with any decor style or motif, and hardwood never goes out of style!  Hardwood flooring is also very sturdy and can last a very long time, especially if you take care of it.  Today I’ll be sharing a few tips on how to care for your hardwood flooring.

Shark Rocket Review and Giveaway

Fall Cleaning Series Banner

Today we continue our series of cleaning products and tips for the fall season. If you struggle to keep your floors clean and are always looking for the latest and greatest invention to help out, look no further! Today I’m sharing my new Shark Rocket Ultralight Upright!  I am very excited to add this to my arsenal of cleaning products, and I’m sure you would love it too.

Prior to getting the Shark Rocket, I had a full size canister vacuum as well as a stick vac AND a hand vac.  Let’s talk about these first:

-My full size canister vac did a good job of cleaning up everyday messes, but it was such a pain to drag out!  It also didn’t pick up everything, and the attachments were kind of a pain in the neck, more than a help.

-I had actually stopped using my full size vacuum entirely, and I mostly used my stick vac, because it is lightweight. But it lacked powerful suction and had no attachments.

-And as for my hand vac, well, I bought it and used it maybe three times.  It was a total waste of money!

Enter the Shark Rocket!
