Ode to The Window Cleaning Robot

Let a robot clean your windows, bathroom walls and solar panels

Imagem de capa

I have been using iRobot Roomba for about 7 years. Few years ago my robot army was joined by Neato Botvac, and I have to say, that I can’t remember how to use a manual vacuuum, or how dust looks like. Cleaning robots saved me thousands of hours of labor, and I just cannot imagine my life without them anymore.

This morning I’ve been enjoying my coffee and looking through the window. Through a disgusting, dirty window. Then it hit me, there must be something for cleaning windows. And voila, there is.

And to my excitement, these robots also work on bathroom walls, shower cabins, non vertical windows, even solar panels.

I’m going to get one myself and follow up with a details review after I use it for a while, so stay tuned!

And here are three most popular window and glass cleaning robots on Amazon.

Left circles all over window then fell off and broke

I REALLY wanted to love this window cleaner. I am a big fan of robot cleaning products- I have 2 robot vacuums, 2 robot mops and a robot gutter cleaner... I am a sucker for anything that can do my cleaning for me. I tried it out on 3 windows yesterday and they looked good, until the sun hit them and I saw they were completely covered in circles. I followed the directions and cleaned dry first, then put cleaner on the pads the second round. I tried again today and, when it got to the top of the first window, it fell off of the window and broke at the charger connection. Great product idea, if only it worked...

Awesome product would buy it again

I purchased that Hobot just recently. We live on a farm and therefore we have everywhere dust. The hobot works great! I used it on very dirty windows (dirt from over the winter time) and it did a fabulous job! Yes, on baked on fly dirt you need a little elbow power but thats it. Never forget, a robot doesn't replace the manpower cleaning it just helps a lot.

My unit broke down, and I wouldn't replace it.

UPDATE:

My machine broke down after a week and was returned to manufacturer. Just stopped working and the manufacturer said the circuit-board was faulty.

Honestly it's not that hardy, leaves streaks, and can't clean corners. Loud as a vacuum cleaner and needs constant supervision to move it from one pane of glass to the next, re-hook the safety line to somewhere secure, and to make sure the machine doesn't get stuck around obstacles such as window handles.

Not recommended.

If you want to get dirty (regular I mean) windows clean

If you want a glorified window duster this is your unit. If you want to get dirty (regular I mean) windows clean...you are going to have to keep looking or do it yourself. Cool engineering gadget though...just needs more cleaning ability.
2 stars for cool looking, sticks to windows well, moves and covers the whole wimdow, and dead a little extra swipe at the overlap area...

The product does not work well on big and curved ...

The product does not work well on big and curved windows. With the limited amount of cleaning solution provided, it is hard to see any significant cleaning result. Also it leaves a circle mark after removed from the window.
