Hi all, non-consulting question here. I notice my mom spending so much of her energies with our domestic help who does the sweeping and swopping because otherwise she doesn’t do a good job. Anyway, I want to avoid her spending her time like this and was thinking to get a robo vacuum. Any suggestions for one that does both dry and wet cleaning in India? Thanks!

That’s their favorite time pass… I’ll leave her to enjoy that time 😃

It isn’t her favourite pastime. I can’t speak about others, but mine absolutely has much more pressing things in her life to focus on. And honestly when there are options to reduce her stress of daily arguments why not implement them. Don’t want to make this a debate or anything. Just needed some robo-vac recommendations. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Robo vacuum don’t clean very well

Why do you want to rob her of that pastime? She has earned it.

I don’t believe it is a benefit that she has ‘Earned’ it. She absolutely has other things in life that are much more important. And at this age if there are options that can help reduce her stress, I really don’t see why it shouldn’t be implemented.

Why do you want to fix what is not broken?

Thankyou for the comments everyone. I am not asking for why am I doing this and why should I ‘fix’ her pastime. It is a pain point I see. My mother agrees on the solution. All i request is any suggestions for someone who may have used robot vacuums in India. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

lol, OP. Probably You would have gotten better answers if you had left the issues with the domestic help part 😂

You need to hire a better professional help and provide with a wet mop

Hello All,

Need your help in figuring out a situation. I moved in with my BF during the pandemic since we were in WFH.
