Does Roomba Really Work?

The Roomba from iRobot is an automated vacuum cleaner that cleans out all types of obstructions on the floors of your home. All you have to do is turn it on and let it do its job. This vacuum cleaner will maneuver itself around the hindrances in your home and it will make your floors cleaner. It has different models that you can choose from. The iRobot Roomba comes with the easy clean brush that can remove pet hair from your furniture. It can go to other places that are difficult to reach. You do not need to carry this vacuum cleaner around nor do you have to bend to turn off this product. It also includes a remote control so that you can turn on and off the vacuum cleaner. It’s good for people who have difficulty bending.

I was skeptical, but my husband bought one anyway. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats, and I have to say it does a remarkable job on the pet hair. The dirt cup is a little small, and has to be emptied more often than with a vacuum. But it goes all over the house, gets into corners and along baseboard, much better than my upright vacuum. I’m impressed, and pretty happy with this thing.

It vacuums by itself, all over your home, just like it says. We have a dog, so it stops often to be cleaned out because of hair. The first times it was annoying because it forced us to look under couches, etc for junk. It finds its way out of anywhere for sure. Bought it second-hand. It’s awesome, but I never would have spent more than maybe $30 new.

It cleans much better than any human hand. It takes him 2-3 hours for the entire appartmant, but it sure cleans VERY WELL!

Does not clean well at all. The battery life is short and it gets confused easily…better off vacuuming yourself; buy a Dyson instead.

Yes - Best thing we bought
4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars

We have two cats and a dog We looked at this a couple of years back. I was skeptical. We bought model #551. The first day we used it 3 times in a row. That was after we vacummed with our other vaccum. It goes under the sofa. Best part of it.
Cons: have to clean it thoroughly once a week. Hair will get caught up in little cracks of unit.

Over all we love this little vaccum.

This product does work, until dust/strings/thread/fiber get into the wheels (which it does ALL the time) and then it stops to tell me that I need to clean the wheels – who wants to do that all the time? Mine worked for about 2 years and quit. This is too expensive to keep replacing.

There’s room for improvement and it’s expensive, but I never have to vacuum again, so I think that makes up for any slight shortcomings.

I purchased my Roomba after talking to some folks who already had one. I absolutely love this product. Of course I had to name her. It is amazing how much dirt she picks up. I even take her camping and she cleans my motorhome on weekends. The hardest working gal I know.
