There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
• Cleans VERY thoroughly on both hard and soft surfaces
• Will circle around chair and bed legs to thoroughly clean around them
• Will push partially closed doors open so it can vacuum under them
• Will boss (push) lightweight shoes around to clean under them.
• Will remove all the dust bunnies under the beds and furniture that the robot can fit under but you cant/wont.
• The built in HEPA filter leaves no dust smell in the air.
• Very intelligent – does a good job of extricating itself from narrow spaces and tangled electrical cords.
• Will vacuum your house on a regular schedule if you are too forgetful/lazy to do it yourself
• Nice cell phone app allows you to label rooms on a map and set up cleaning tasks
• Customer support/care is good.
• iRobot may have more replaceable parts than other makes
• iRobot has a good reliability reputation
• Pretty noisy. Not too loud, but rather annoying. Emits loud whirring noise with random whining and bumping noises. Maybe this is a necessary consequence for strong suction and cleaning.
• Can be startling if run on a schedule when you are home. Can also be startling if it is running a task, runs low on battery power, recharges itself, and then restarts itself several hours later to finish the previous task. The latter can be avoided by breaking large tasks into several smaller ones.
• Cannot run at night in the dark, though that would wake you anyway even if the lights were on for it.
• Spends a lot of time bumping into things. Sometimes it will come up to a wall and gently tap it, but often it will run full speed into chair legs and furniture. The hard plastic bumper has some play in it, and I have not noticed any marks on the furniture yet (though I have only used it a few times). You might want to add a white rubber or felt strip to the bumper. iRobot sent me a white vinyl adhesive “bumper extender” strip free of charge.
• Takes a long time to clean (though it does do a very thorough job). Much longer than if you did it yourself. This is only a problem if you are at home, since it is noisy. My guess is that the i7 will clean faster than the less expensive versions since it is more intelligent and usually cleans in a serpentine manner rather than the haphazard “rebound off the wall” methods the others use. You might want to invest in a lightweight cordless vacuum instead, and vacuum the area yourself in one quarter of the time.
• You need to empty the dust bin every hour or so. You also need to pull the small HEPA filter out and knock it sharply to free the dust from it. I found the small accordion like folds in it still retain a lot of dust so I use my hand held dust-buster to suck out the remaining dust. You can avoid emptying the bin and HEPA filter if you spend the extra $200 for the i7+ self- emptying accessory, which is another vacuum cleaner that automatically sucks the debris out of the i7.
• You need to keep its dozen or so sensors clean. This 30 second job probably only needs to be performed after every few hours of cleaning time.
• You need to put chairs on top of tables if the chair legs are too close together for the robot to pass through, or if all the cross bars in the chair are too low for the robot to get under (although it only needs access on at least one side of the chair to clean under it).
• You need to tie up electrical cords. The i7 does a nice job of not getting stuck on them, but it pulled my cell phone charger (fortunately I did not have my phone in it at the time) and my electric toothbrush charger off my dresser.
• Can be too aggressive and damage thick wool carpets. Read your carpet tag – don’t use the robot if the tag says: ” do not use beater bar”. I had to set up a large “keep out” zone and now have to vacuum it by hand (along with the stairs). Run the robot on a small section first and then check the dust bin. If the bin is full then run the robot in “map” mode first, which maps out the entire floor without the roller brush running, then set up a “keep out” zone on the map. I called Customer Care and they sent me four “keep out” beacons for free (normally cost $40 each) – I don’t know why they did not have me try the “map only” mode at the time.
• Can yank rag ends out of “rag rugs” thus making holes in them and getting hopeless stuck trying to swallow the ends. I had to set up a “keep out” zone and now do this rug also by hand.
• Don’t let it get tangled up in string. Somehow it knocked a spool of fishing line out of a stand and took me 15 minutes to untangle it (my fault). The rollers and spinning brush are removable but the wheel bearings don’t seem to be.
• Is quite interesting to watch so you can end up wasting lots of time watching it, which you could have spent vacuuming by yourself.
• Deprives you of exercise unless you use that time to exercise doing something else.
For anyone who has a cleaning service - do not consider permanently replacing the service with this (though maybe a temporary suspension during the Covid winter?). It obviously only vacuums floors, it will not: vacuum stairs, mop floors, dust furniture and sills, clean bathroom fixtures, clean countertops and stove top, vacuum cobwebs off walls, straighten rooms, do & fold laundry.
So far the time I have spent researching, setting up, learning, and watching the Roomba vacuum for the last two weeks has been a lot longer than the time it would have taken me to vacuum the house by myself. Hopefully the Roomba will save me time in the long run as we learn to trust it.
I have a large dog that sheds a LOT and I run this every morning in the room where he spends the most time, and most other rooms several times a week. Unlike my previous dumb robovac, which pingponged around the house aimlessly, cleaning the same areas over and over until it ran out of battery, and getting stuck in my barstools every time, this robovac goes straight to the area you select, cleans in straight lines, works the perimeter, then returns to base. Never gets stuck. You can tell it to clean several rooms in any order you want, or clean "all." I didn't get the smart base because I read that it got clogged with pet hair, the bags seemed expensive, and I figure I'd be emptying it almost as often, anyway, with all the hair. My pet hair load means I have to empty the dust bin after every room or two, but that's not exactly onerous. TBH, it's kind of satisfying to empty out the bin and see how much hair it picked up. If we didn't have pet hair, the dust bin would probably suffice for the whole house (2000 sf) or more.
I have wood floors with a few short-pile rugs. Cleans the wood floors great and the carpets ok. Only complaint is that it's too tall to get under my particular kitchen cabinets so I don't use it in kitchen. The app is great. Alexa commands are inconvenient because it's a whole conversation ("Do you want to start the mop afterward?") and then it usually has some kind of communication issue and I end up grabbing the phone anyway. But the app is easy and you can make favorites so it's just a tap or two to get regular jobs going. This is a sanity saver for me because pet hair drives me mad. In some ways, it vacuums better than a big vac because it really gets under the furniture. However, if the mom-in-law is coming over, might want to pull out the big vac and get in the crevices that this can't get to.The battery life is good and it will vacuum most of the main floor (about 1400 sf) before giving out. Unfortunately, doesn't save enough juice to get back to base (poops out about 15 feet from base) so it doesn't re-charge and resume vacuuming as advertised. Not a problem for me since I tend to vacuum the house piecemeal anyway. I bought it on sale (altho not as cheap as it got before Christmas) and it's worth it.
The robomop is a different story. I bought the two bundled. It's true that you can set the mop to start when the vac finishes. HOWEVER, the vac & mop do not share mapping. The mop has to do several runs of its own to make its own map. It will have different "rooms" unless you take a lot of care to ensure everything is exactly the same as the vaccum. And if you create a zone on one ((say, for a Christmas tree) you have to go to the other one and put it on there in exactly the same way. And here's the big problem: if you tell the vac to do Room 1 and the mop to start afterward, the mop doesn't recognize that the vac only did Room 1, and the mop cleans the entire house, not just Room 1. So the "mop after" feature is useless unless you vacuum the whole house first and you want the whole house mopped. Maybe there's a way to do this but I couldn't figure it out. Also, the iRobot floor cleaner, which they say is the only cleaner you can use, leaves streaks on hardwood floors. As other reviewers noted, water does better. So you are limited to water and like to use products that make my wood floors glow. Plus, this mop takes forever and doesn't get up dried on food or other hard stains. And for some reason, my mop doesn't recognize that I put the "wet mop pad" on it, and will only offer to "dry mop" , which is what, exactly? I haven't bothered to try to fix it. Plus, you have to put on the mopping pad and fill the reservoir with water every time. Easier, faster and better to just grab my Bona mop with its great hardwood floor cleaner and make a pass over my floors from time to time. To be fair, the robomop might work better for someone who works away from home and can schedule the vacuum and mop to run while they're gone, and then come home to clean floors. And when I have used it, it does make the floors appreciably cleaner than just vacuuming.
Top reviews from other countries
Generally maps and cleans in short sweeps whereas I think cleaning would be more efficient and effective lengthwise in all rooms.
Never seems to clean any room the same way twice (so I don't know when to slide my bar stools, which it can't get under, out from the kitchen island, as opposed to having to actually remove them from the kitchen).
Sometimes, but not always, repeatedly goes back under or over the same area, not because it's dirty...not sure why.
Consistently misses one section of a guest bedroom. I know this because we have a bird in that room and after the Roomba finishes in that room there's always feathers and seed left on that section of carpet. I can't figure out why, because there's clear access for the Roomba in all directions in that spot.
Sometimes bumps and bangs into furniture fairly hard...doesn't damage itself or the furniture, but it's somewhat noisy.
When I remove the cup to empty it, a little pile of dirt ends up on the floor under the unit.
On the plus side:
I love that once it has mapped (after 2 or 3 jobs), I can then specify that it clean only a certain room or rooms.
My house has never been so clean! As soon as I start to see crumbs, cat fur, hair etc, I assign a cleaning job to the Roomba!
I watched it while it cleaned for the first few times and made a note of everything that needed to be lifted, repositioned, relocated in future in order to maximize the Roomba's cleaning. There are also a few spots where the unit can't get in, under or behind, so before I operate the Roomba I use my Swiffer duster to pull out accumulated dust etc from those spots then let the Roomba vacuum it all up.
The last thing it does before returning home after cleaning a room or an entire floor is go back and sweep the entire perimeter.
My pets pay no attention to it.
So far, so good!
Reviewed in Mexico 🇲🇽 on March 20, 2021
I was to experience three separate things with this iRobot:
What happens when an iRobot goes rouge
How does customer support work/not work
When an iRobot actually works properly - mostly
Last item first - When an iRobot actually works properly
The vacuum is a real time saver and it does a fairly decent job within its limitations. Right up front, the biggest limitation is its ability to get into the corner area between floor and wall. It needs to be traveling in the right direction for the little spinning pick up brush (only one is used) to draw dust out of the corner.
It works to clean a large area by traveling back and forth a number of times to ensure that each square inch is cleaned, and here it does a pretty good job, I’m pleased. We have small area rugs on a laminate floor throughout the house and this little guy gets all of it cleaned. I’m actually surprised at just how much it does pick up each day. It has no problem picking up dog hair, human hair, sand, dust, and whatever else hangs around on the floor.
► Cleaning out the collection cup is easy enough and other than cleaning the external sensors there really isn’t anything else that needs to be done.
► The battery ends up being drawn down to about 65% after cleaning roughly 900 square feet and when drawn down fully it is completely recharged after about an hour.
There are two minor issues with the working unit
► It has a tendency to reboot (maybe after installing new firmware) in the middle of the night which means that it makes an audible beepboop kind of noise. At 3:30 in the morning this annoying.
► The robot comes with a battery operated (included) little box which allows you to create a zone with invisible light which the vacuum sees but is invisible to humans, that the iRobot wont/shouldn’t cross, this allows you to section off a room of even a portion of the house if needed. This vacuum will cross this at least once every 6 runs.
How does customer support work – That depends on who you talk with
When I first started using the original (it needed to be replaced) it worked good for a few days and then all of a sudden it started doing weird things, like crashing into things at full speed. Normally it can sense something coming up and slows down before ramming a chair leg or wall. This is how it senses and determines the floor layout and stores these details for alter use if I only want one room cleaned for instance.
I contacted the support number and talked with a very helpful lady, Karina, she did some actual on device diagnostics after asking if I would give her permission to do so. She discovered that there was indeed something wrong with the devices system. This call included her asking me to try a couple of things, in all it took a little less than half an hour after which she said that iRobot would be replacing the vacuum free of charge. She was ready to send it out that day but as this was right before the Christmas break I asked if they could hold off as I was going to be away for a few days and didn’t want it delivered to my front door when no one was home to bring it in, I’ve been robbed by porch pirates previously. She responded that this was fine, all I needed to do was contact them later and get it shipped out when I would be home.
This is where the pain started
When I called back in the new year I got a different gal, Mikayla, on the phone who was a real pain to deal with. She insisted on going over everything again only for some reason it took her 45 minutes to reach the same conclusion, she simply would not accept that the first person who diagnosed the unit’s problems knew what she was doing. She was able to see the notes Karina made so this wasn't something that needed further exploration. So after wasting 45 minutes of my life she finally agreed to ship out a replacement vacuum.
I appreciate that the company was willing to cover all of the costs to ship out a replacement plus cover the fright charges of returning the bad vacuum but to waste a customers time the way Mikayla did is not acceptable and I can only hope the company will change up its training.
When a Roomba goes bad
The first unit, when it started acting up, did all kinds of stupid things. The most annoying was its tendency to make weird beeping and booping noises during the wee hours of the night. Yes, its inability to properly navigate the house was an issue but being woken up in the middle of the night by the unit… well it needed to live downstairs till the replacement showed up
It would crash into things, I mean at full speed, as if it didn’t sense anything was in front of it. Normally these little guys do a great job of feeling their way around a home and plotting the territory so that it knows when to slow down and that sort of thing. I had cleaned all of the sensors and it made no difference.
On a few occasions it would simply stop in the middle of an area and the app notified me that it had finished cleaning, normally when done it should return to its base to recharge and then the app notifies me its done.
On a few occasions it would simply stop in a wide open area and give me an audible voice “uneven floor” notification.
