Most people don't think much about cleaning their windows, even if they live in one of those mid-century modern houses that have more floor-to-ceiling windows than external walls. And then you realize that those ugly marks on the neighbor's house aren't on the neighbor's house at all but on the glass that you're looking at the neighbor's house through. You could get out the squeegee and the Windex and take care of the problem yourself, but you're likely just to rearrange the smudges into neat, geometric patterns. And once you're finished, as long as you've got the squeegee out, you should tackle the shower stall, the sliding glass door, the mirrors -- and let's not even start with the upstairs windows. By the time you're done, a long evening of sitting in front of the TV watching reality shows might be all you feel ambitious enough for.
Or you could let a bot do it. The Ecovacs Winbot W950 will crawl up your windows, shower stalls, mirrors, etc., and wipe them spotlessly clean. The Winbot uses what Ecovacs calls a "smart drive" system that they claim distinguishes it from other forms of robotic cleaners, but they aren't especially vocal about the difference. Whatever, it does seems capable of finding its way around glass surfaces, while avoiding obstacles, like the window sill or that suction-cupped holiday decoration you've still got up in March. It comes with a 16-foot cord that may or may not reach all the way from ground level to your second floor windows. If not, you might have to find a way to plug it in separately for the upper floors.
The Winbot isn't terribly expensive by automated-cleaner standards, about in the mid-range of robovac prices. It runs quietly, at 68 decibels, which isn't quite as silent as some robotic lawnmowers. How you transport it from window to window isn't clear, given that it's going to avoid the obstacles that generally separate one window from another. There aren't a lot of other robotic window cleaners on the market, but you might want to check out the Hobot 168 or some of Ecovac's other offerings, like the Ecovacs Winbot W930 .
Great device! Keeps what it promises. However, I have always pre-cleaned, since I do not come to clean every four weeks window. I am very pleased!
Ideal solution to automatically clean your windows! Never thought a machine that could crawl over your windows. We use him about once a month... Mega Handy!
Enormous work relief, especially with large winter garden slabs and the oblique roof. I am very pleased!
It is a very good equipment if you use it before dirt becomes serious. Depending on when you use it, I think that evaluation will be split greatly! Smart!
Excellent model! It is not inferior to my past vacuum cleaner. Thank you, very pleased!
