⇒ A loud automatic vacuum cleaner that interrupts your kids’ sleep or one that wouldn’t allow you to enjoy your favorite TV shows.

⇒ A lazy self vacuuming robot can’t cover the entire room.

⇒ A flimsy toy of a robot vacuum whose brushes are difficult and frustrating to clean.

All characteristics of inferior robot vacuums selling at ridiculously high price points.

Following a one-man hunt for a quality, economical and affordable robot vacuum, the Goovi robot vacuum emerged as the better alternative.

Today’s post is a comprehensive review of the potentials and benefits of the Goovi 1600pa robotic vacuum cleaner.

Full details about the Goovi robot vacuum cleaner

Navigation

Do you own one of those robot vacuums that’ll spend an entire charge gallivanting aimlessly around the room? Eventually, it never made it out of that room.

Likewise the obstacle detection and negotiation skills of the majority of these robot vacuums, which is poor at best.

Worst yet, products in this category get stuck and bump into objects far too frequently.

The problem with a robot vacuum lacking intelligent navigation features is that a shoddy cleaning job is inevitable. This often necessitates introducing an upright vacuum.

As if physically moving a manual vacuum to areas where a robot vacuum failed isn’t disappointing enough. Not to mention this is a time-wasting, vitality devouring, and totally avoidable hassle.

With the Goovi robot vacuum, however, navigation is a breeze.

The large and sturdy wheels of the Goovi aids effortless movement and easy climbing of thresholds and surfaces such as a rug.

And thanks to its intelligent features, particularly the obstacle detecting sensors, Goovi rarely gets held. As well, going in and out of tight spots such as under bed or couch seems to be Goovi’s forte.

Speed & Function

Hard floor is a given for most robot vacuums. The worst of them would do a decent cleaning job.

What about carpet, or rugs?

The Ecovacs N79 is a favorite among robot vacuum users. But as awesomely as it would perform on wood or tile, carpets and rugs are no joke. This problem is also noticeable in the majority of the 6th, 7th, and even some 8th generation of the Roombas.

With the Goovi robot vacuum, the narrative changes.

First, Goovi has 4 rotating brushes so it gets more in its path.

Second, Goovi transitions flawlessly between multiple surfaces (linoleum floors, ceramic tile, laminate, throw rugs, doormats, etc.), being equally efficient at cleaning them all.

Third, Goovi has a suction button on the remote. This provides a convenient way to increase suction on different flooring as necessary.

Lastly, there are 5 cleaning methods: auto, spot, small-space, edge, and intensive cleaning. These cleaning options allow users to spot clean or deep clean desired spots or surfaces.

Suction

Suction is a vacuum’s ability to suck up dirt on a surface. If a robot vacuum has a weaker suction, picking up dust and dirt particles then becomes a problem.

Typically, a robot vacuum with a weak suction should do an OK job on a smooth surface such as wood. Performance on a thick, patterned rug or carpet is HIGHLY unpredictable.

Advertised at the suction of 1600pa, in action, Goovi isn’t struggling with carpets or throw rugs. Or let me say Goovi isn’t a “one-floor” wonder. Instead, Goovi vacuum is sucking loads of dog and cat hair, also human hair, plus other dirt particles from off of different flooring to include carpets, rugs, woods, linoleum, etc.

Perhaps it’s worth mentioning that only a few robot vacuums can be trusted with long human hair.

Therefore if you’ve got long hair or live with people who do, and maybe coincidentally too you’re considering delegating your home’s cleaning to a robot, Goovi robot vacuum makes perfect sense.

Battery Life

Different from those robot vacuums that need recharging every 30 minutes. But did I mention that some of these products will run out of battery and die before reaching their charging station? For a few of them that makes it to their charging station, charging takes forever and it only gets worse seeing when they return from recharging, they’re simply clueless as to where to resume cleaning.

The Goovi robot vacuum, on the other hand, stands out with a long-lasting battery. The battery of the Goovi robot vacuum is advertised to last about 100 minutes with each charge and that, honestly, is plenty of battery life to do a very thorough job in one room or light cleaning over the whole house.

Charging the Goovi doesn’t take all that long either, so it’s ready to go again without too long of a wait. The best part is, when the battery is going on empty, Goovi finds its way to the charging base, every time!

Scheduled Cleaning

Scheduled cleaning is a feature that can be accessed on Goovi’s remote. Meaning no download or Wi-Fi connection is required yet you’ll be able to tell Goovi to run as desired.

One idea is to set Goovi to run about half an hour before you’re supposed to wake up so that by the time you’re ready to use say, the kitchen, a clean floor is waiting for you.

Price

I’d think Goovi even performs better than competing products because I for one know a certain product from a popular brand at almost twice the price of Goovi. Unfortunately, this robot vacuum will struggle at best on carpets and rugs. Not to mention its navigation and mapping capabilities. You then want to ask yourself, is paying double for a cleaning tool you can get at half the price worth it?

Why Choose the Goovi Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

In the preceding subheading, I discussed what the Goovi can and can’t do.

Under this subheading, you’ll be furnished with details on the gains (aka benefits) derivable from buying a Goovi robotic vacuum cleaner.

Convenience

Admit it: there’s a lot of discomforts associated with having back problems and using an upright vacuum. The story is the same if you’ve got, say, asthma or maybe an allergy.

Robot vacuums have always been an option but you need to be careful of inferior robot vacuums whose stock in trade entails spreading dust and dirt particles carelessly.

Understand however that the Goovi robot vacuum doesn’t spread dust particles–it sucks them in instead. That way you’re improving your health.

You’ve improved your health.

Now is the time to improve your home cleanliness…

Let me quickly mention that Goovi is able to get under the dressers, beds, and all the tight spaces that can’t be reached with an upright vacuum cleaner. This should save you a lot of trouble crouching down.

Further, there’s a button on the remote to send the vacuum to the charging base which is very convenient for when you’re not in close proximity. Goovi also has a timer function which is great because you can set it to run automatically.

In addition, Goovi has four brushes that it makes the best use of to clean corners. A clean corner is the icing on the cake of a complete, thorough cleaning job. The implication is that following up with a manual vacuum then becomes absolutely unnecessary.

User-friendly

Easy to Clean

In addition to a big trash compartment and one which is easy to remove, dump, and re-position, there are sweeper pegs and a brush to help ensure that hair and dust are cleaned out more quickly and leisurely. Ditto, free extra tools to replace tired parts in between waiting for ordered replacement parts.

In rare cases where it’s necessary to remove dog hair from the roller about halfway through cleaning, this is very easy to do–the roller just pops right out.

Pleasantly Quiet

Maybe you own one of those robot vacuums you can’t run while you or your kids are sleeping. I mean a SUPER loud robot vacuum you’ve got to stop running before you can take calls or watch your favorite TV programs. How’s that for a low budget noise pollution machine?

One of the dynamics of the robot technology industry is that at one point or the other consumers are giving off one thing for another.

For instance, if you’re buying the iRobot Roomba i7 plus or the s9 plus, you’ll be shelling out more than a thousand grand for convenience and more detailed cleaning. The same is true of those robot vacuums that clean flawlessly but are seriously lacking in the noise department.

Why I’m telling you this is just so you know that the Goovi is pleasantly quiet. But most importantly you won’t be trading off anything. Whether that be your sanity, comfort, or convenience.

Lightweight

You may think the weight of a robot vacuum is pointless. I’d say wait until taking the device up and down your floors become a full-time job. It neither helps since as of the moment of this writing, robot vacuum can’t climb stairs.

Goovi weighing only 9 pounds means you’ve got no worries should the situation demands to move Goovi from one room or floor to another.

Economical

To give you an idea of the cost-effectiveness of the Goovi robot vacuum. As of the time of this writing, Goovi is priced under 200 dollars at Amazon.

1 charging base, 1 remote control, and 2 AAA batteries are three accessories that accompany the Goovi robot vacuum.

Then there are replacement parts to include 1 cleaning tool, 2 sets of brushes, and 2 filters.

Either way, the accessories and replacement parts that come FREELY with the Goovi cleaner is expected to extend the useful life of the vacuum while getting its user to spend less on extra parts and accessories.

Freedom

The plan is for Goovi to offer a little extra help at home most notably in the area of eliminating the ritual of sweeping the floor multiple times a day. Not having to continuously keep up with all of the children’s crumb and pet trails is so REFRESHING and LIBERATING. This is because, as your home is getting cleaner by the minute, you could go to work, sleep, hang out with friends, or do other things of interest.

Additional Information

1. There are two Goovis, having the same features, with the only difference being that one has a remote in addition to an app, while the other has just a remote. The Goovi featured in this review is the remote option.

2. One of the features available in Goovi’s app is the ability to track the whereabouts of the machine.

3. Goovi (like all robot vacuums) can get trapped in loose cables, small areas like restrooms, or closets. To put it simply, prepare the room before releasing Goovi for vacuuming.

4. The manual of the Goovi robot vacuum can use some improvements. For one, the manual didn’t explain what the blue light indicates. It explains what the “red” light indicates (but the actual color is orange).

5. There’s no battery indicator but this isn’t a big deal as Goovi will auto recharge.

6. Goovi lacks mapping features, but keep in mind the price of this vs the mapping ones.

7. You’ll need to be close to the vacuum to use the remote. However, once the auto is engaged you really don’t need it.

8. Virtual walls don’t come with this vacuum. As a result, Goovi will attempt to clean any open rooms.

Recommendations

  • Clean the sensor often. Any dust accumulation will cause Goovi to bump into furniture and walls.
  • Consider placing the charging station in an area where the signal is clear. Storing it in an enclosed area will frustrate the unit and it will take FOREVER for it to find its home.
  • Make sure you remove the hair from the bristles on the bottom often, it’ll make cleaning a whole lot easier.

    • A shame you couldn’t pair Goovi to the app, Linda. There’s actually one Goovi with an app and a remote (https://amzn.to/2PJ6JzM) and another with remote only (https://amzn.to/2JS19aO). Needless to mention that the post is a review of the remote option (I had mentioned this under the additional information section). So while the app may offer convenience and greater control. Regardless, you should be able to clean your floors without it, plus the remote should suffice. If I may ask, what’s your experience so far with Goovi?

  1. Sam:
    I tried to get those two apps above. Had the same problem making the WiFi work. Honestly, machine is good, but tech support sucks. Still haven’t solved problem

    • Unavailable/unhelpful support is a general issue with most robot vacuums brands – even the likes of Roomba, Naeto and Deebot. Maybe give the Smart Life app another chance. Hopefully it works this time.
