iRobot Scooba Gives Lucinda a Day Off

March 1st, 2009

The Office Loft has beautiful concrete floors.  Great for keeping down the dust, running the RC car, and playing basketball.  That said the house cleaner Lucinda hates them since the vacuum just blows fuzz from the cats around the place.  So I bought an iRobot Scooba.

The Scooba does a good job, and it is reasonably quiet, about one time in 10 it needs rescuing from the entertainment stand, the gap underneath which is almost exactly the height of the scooba. 

The default cleaner has bleach in it which I have been opting not to use, after I tracked some wetness on to the carpet, and left a white spot.

The Scooba is nicer looking than my Roomba used to be.  Not as good looking as Lucinda, but it doesn’t complain, and this lets Lucinda focus on blinds, and other tasks robots can’t yet help with.
