The SpotBot and SpotBot Pet spot cleaning machines can be set upon a carpet or upholstery stain, turned on and left to do their work without any assistance. The two machines have just a few minor differences, the main one being the cleaning solution that they come with.
Both the SpotBot and SpotBot Pet are convenient hand-held spot cleaners that can be used on carpets, rugs and upholstery. Both SpotBot systems have an "Automatic Smart System" that measures and distributes the appropriate amount of water and cleaning formula for each specific spot. For each stain, the SpotBot cycles through more than 400 complete cleaning revolutions to ensure effective stain removal.
The SpotBot and SpotBot Pet both weigh 17 to 18 lbs., and their dimensions are also the same: 9.5-inch length, 20-inch width and 14-inch height. Both machines have a carrying handle built into the top of the machine and pre-programmed control settings from which to choose. One side of the machine has a tank for cleaning solution, while the other side has a tank to collect dirty solution. The SpotBot and SpotBot Pet both feature a spiral brush on the bottom of the machine and a 3-inch tough stain brush attached to the machine by a vacuum flex hose. The power cord is 16 feet long on both machines.
The SpotBot and SpotBot Pet have similar features. They both feature a tough stain brush that is attached to the machine by a vacuum flex hose. This stain brush can be used in hard-to-reach areas or when you need to manually clean an area, such as the stairs. Each machine has pre-programmed spot cleaning settings. If you are using the automatic settings, simply place the machine over the spot and choose either "surface stain" or "set-in stain." You can stop or pause the machine at any time, and it will beep to indicate it has finished.
The only differences that seem to exist between the SpotBot and the SpotBot Pet are seemingly inconsequential. Their colors do vary; the SpotBot is green and the SpotBot Pet is blue. Other than that, they come with different cleaning solutions. Included with the SpotBot are an 8 oz. bottle of "Little Green Formula" and a 16 oz. bottle of "OxyGen2." However, the SpotBot Pet comes with an 8 oz. bottle of "Pet Formula" and a 16 oz. bottle of "OxyGen2."
In 2009, the price of the SpotBot was $134.99, while the price of the SpotBot Pet was $139.99.
