Talk about a #FavortieThingsFriday item, this is one of my ALL TIME favorites! The Roomba vacuum! I have had one since they came out with them. I’ve run through a few too in the past 15 years. Right now I have two of them. One for upstairs, one for the main floor. During a recent Black Friday sale, I did invest in a different brand, and I can tell you, it’s not as user friendly. In fact, without it sitting next to me, I can’t even remember its name.
These Roombas are schedule-able. Every morning at 9am and 10am they start their journey through the rooms and clean until the carpet sensors say the rooms are clean, or until the battery wears down 2 hours later. Then, they tuck themselves into their base and charge.
I joke often that I don’t have pets wandering around my feet. I have robots!
But this handy guy makes my house look nice all the time. To keep your carpets nice, they recommend that you vacuum them each day. **sigh** Who wants to do that? But with the Roomba you can!
Until I got the Roomba for upstairs, the carpet very rarely got a good vacuuming! In the
few short weeks where I’ve had it circling around every morning, it has brought life back to this worn out carpet.
As you can see, the circular patterns are where the Roomba starts its journey. It senses its pattern, and this is how you get maximum cleaning done!
I’ve joked about putting eyes on them. In fact, my husband has named them Ramon and Ramona. Truly its like a kid who likes to clean. It needs its rest to recharge. You have to dump the bin every few days. And of course, you should pick up before it eats up your cords, but unlike the kid or pet, it lives to clean for you.
I cannot recommend a Roomba vacuum enough! Everyone should have one!
If you’re wondering about purchasing one check out the report done by Reviews.com. They took multiple robotic vacuums and tested them against each other. High end and lower end models ran the same course. You can see the results and watch the videos for yourself. I’m pleased to say that Roomba came out on top. They’ve built a superior model, and I’ll attest that it is a time savor for the humans in the house. (Especially if you do have pets!) Check out their review here.
