How does Spot Clean work on Botvac, Botvac D Series, and XV robots?

This information is related to the following robots:

  • Botvac D4 Connected
  • Botvac D6 Connected
  • Botvac D7 Connected


You can initiate spot cleaning with the Neato iOS or Android App via the options Menu. By default Spot Cleaning creates and cleans a boundary of a 4' x 6' virtual area and then cleans the interior using a back and forth straight-line pattern. When complete, Neato returns to the starting location or if it saw a charge base nearby while cleaning, it will return to the charge base and wiggle up to it. You may also choose to enable cleaning of a larger spot by toggling the "Large Spot" option on before initiating a Spot Cleaning.



XV Series:  SPOT CLEAN functionality is available via the LCD screen by selecting MENU -> SPOT CLEAN.

Botvac and Botvac D Series robots: Press the SPOT CLEAN button spot  for your Neato to clean 4′ x 6′ section of space with the touch of a button. You can carry and place the robot  wherever you’d like to run the spot clean.
