The COVID-19 pandemic has changed several things around us like working from home, focusing more on hygiene, etc and these things have become our new normal. Balancing office work with household chores like cleaning, and disinfecting had become troublesome. Additionally, for a working professional having a full-time job requires concentration, making cleaning time-consuming.
Keeping all these factors in mind, I had to invest in a robotic vacuum cleaner so that I could get all the help I needed to keep the house clean – just like I always dreamed of. After a lot of research, I ended up buying the Eureka Forbes Robo iVAC Vacuum Cleaner. Now the question arises – why did I choose a vacuum cleaner from Eureka Forbes?
The answer to this question is simple, Eureka Forbes is a well-known brand and when it comes to vacuum cleaners it is India’s No.1 vacuum cleaner brand. For me, the product I’m investing my money in should be from a trusted brand and should have better after-sales support. Additionally, the product comes with a 1-year warranty.
The Eureka Forbes Robo iVac Vacuum Cleaner is a robotic vacuum cleaner that costs Rs. 17,999. It is available in glossy black color with radar elements with the Eureka Forbes logo in white. It has sleek dimensions of 300 x 78 x 78 mm and weighs around 2.9 kg. It has a sound level of ≤ 70 dB.
The word “robot” is meant to hint at the autonomous functions and is available in a flattened cylindrical shape with a raised radar system that is used to “see” around and avoid obstacles.
This vacuum cleaner can effectively deep clean all nooks and corners of the home. It has multiple modes of cleaning that you can set up as per your cleaning needs; like auto cleaning which maps your house on its own and cleans. The spiral mode cleans one area, the spot cleaning mode cleans stubborn dirt, the zig-zag mode to cover the edges of your floor, and so on. Every mode can be operated or changed as per your preferences through remote control.
The Eureka Forbes iVAC Vacuum Cleaner comes with a remote control just like a TV and Air Conditioner. By using the remote you can change modes, set schedules, navigate and charge the Robo iVac with just a click. The auto cleaning feature cleans the room automatically and adjusts its cleaning mode according to the environment while with the scheduling mode, you can set a timer and clean the room as per your convenience.
The Eureka Forbes Robo iVAC Vacuum Cleaner adheres to the mantra – fill it, shut it, and forget it. The way it works is simple, just instruct it to start cleaning and the Eureka Forbes Robo iVac Vacuum Cleaner detaches from its dock, turns on the triple-arm dual cleaning brushes, switches on the suction unit, and starts cleaning around.
The Robo iVac Vacuum Cleaner offers two compartments (one for vacuuming dry waste and the other for mopping wet spills). The other compartment, for the wet mopping function, has to be filled with water so that you can use this vacuum cleaner for everyday mopping.
The good thing is that the brand offers an extra ultra-premium microfiber cloth. You just have to fill the water in the tank and have to attach the ultra-premium microfiber cloth which comes with velcro straps. Its nylon brushes help in channelizing the minute dirt swiftly. This brush is crucial for pulling up the dirt from nooks and corners and can pick up everyday dirt like hair & dust easily.
Powered with a 2600mAh battery which makes it capable of covering a 2/3 BHK apartment. The Eureka Forbes Robo iVac Vacuum Cleaner comes with an auto docking station that needs to sit in a preset space in your house and is connected to power. Its sensors and navigation ensure the robotic vacuum cleaner automatically returns to the charging station when the battery is low. The glossy black body of the vacuum can be restored to its original shine with a simple wipe.
Finally, all I can say is the Eureka Forbes Robotic vacuum cleaner is a nifty little addition to house cleaning equipment and it’s a boon for those who are living the bachelor life or having a newborn that explores all the corners of your house. On the maintenance side, it is fairly easy and replacement parts (such as brushes, filters, and compartments) are very accessible.
It is available on Amazon and the Eureka Forbes website.
