Scooba Hard Floor Mopping Robotic

Vacuum Review: Scooba Hard Floor Mopping Robot Vacuum
Vacuum Rating: 5 Stars out of 5

This might come as a surprise to some of my readers, but I don’t like to mop. As a matter of fact I hate mopping. I can vacuum and sweep all day with a smile on my face but I would rather sit through 3 6 hour long foreign French films I can’t understand than mop. That’s why the IRobot Scooba caught my eye. It’s not quite a vacuum cleaner and by no means a carpet steam cleaner. It’s actually a brand new type of cleaner, a floor cleaner! Here is a review of the IRobot Scooba Hard Floor Cleaner detailing everything I know!

For those of you already familiar with the Roomba, this is going to be a little familiar. The IRobot Scooba is a small disk shaped cleaning robot, yes, I said cleaning robot. (It’s kind of like a helper monkey that plugs in and doesn’t throw its own feces at you.) The small disk shape makes cleaning under furniture such as chairs and tables ideal.

The Scooba is compatible with a wide range of flooring including linoleum, tile, marble, and sealed hard wood flooring. One of my favorite features of the Scooba Vacuum Robot is that it’s compatible with a cleaning solution made by Clorox, a brand I use for most of my laundry and put a lot of trust in. It works like a dream and most people who purchase the Scooba are extremely happy with the Scooba’s performance. Another great feature is once the Scooba has made a pass on your floor, it’s done. The Scooba cleans in a single swipe including prep, scrubbing, and drying.

Eureka 4870GZ Smart-Vac

The Eureka Boss 4870GZ gets a good review for being unique and delivering dependability.Hello Readers,

Well, the move from text to video is proving difficult. Your Sensei is still trying to find a decent camera, if anyone out there has any advice on a good camera for internet movies let me know! The script is written, actually the first three scripts are written, we’re just waiting on my of my tech savvy helpers to have a little extra time to start production. He wants to have a career in movies and film; I promised him credits!

Vacuum Review: Eureka 4870GZ Smart-Vac
Vacuum Rating: 4 stars out of 5 for impressive unique features, solid performance, and an excellent track record.
Price: $149.99

Anyway, in lieu of a video review I thought it was high time I bring my readers another in depth, text based vacuum review. I’ve decided to take a close look at the Eureka 4870GZ Eureka Boss. It’s an extremely popular vacuum cleaner and deserves a close look!

Air Selector Switch
There was one feature in particular that caught my eye. When I’m vacuuming my house and I disconnect the hose to dust or pick up a few rebellious scraps of paper, I always wonder how much more powerful the suction of the hose would be if ALL the suction was directed through the suction hose. Well, the Eureka 4870GZ Boss Smart Vac is one of the first vacuum cleaners to let me know! The Eureka 4870GZ includes what Eureka calls an Air Selector Switch that directs all the suction from the cleaning head to the suction hose and vice versa. It’s a remarkable feature!

HEPA Filter
If you’ve read more than a few pages of my vacuum review site, you’ll notice that I really like vacuum cleaners with HEPA filters. That’s because they reduce a lot of dust and allergens that cause people like me allergies and sleeping problems. The Eureka 4870GZ comes equipped with a HEPA filter.

Replaceable Light Bulb
Okay, this was another one of the features I was impressed with. Most vacuum cleaners with built in headlights require users to go through a long, drawn out process to replace the light. The Eureka 4870GZ includes simple instructions for removing a burnt out bulb, something I think the vacuum industry in general should emulate. It’s a little thing, but it’s a little thing I really like about the Eureka Boss.

Suction Power
I don’t have too much to say on this subject. I can sum up my sentiments with the word “extremely satisfied”. Definitely not the most powerful upright on the market, but you’re not going to be disappointed.

I’m satisfied with the price, you might want to check on Amazon every now and then for sales and price breaks.

Assembly for the Eureka 4870GZ requires attaching the vacuum handle and screwing in a few screws. It should take all of 5 minutes for the average person.

What I Didn’t Like
Overall, the Eureka Boss 4870GZ is a strong showing from Eureka. The only complaint I have is with the Power Paw. I was not impressed with it’s performance.
