There’s nothing like a nice, clean home, especially during the holidays. A roaring fire, a twinkling Christmas tree, and the gentle hum of a Roomba cleaning you. Wait, what? That’s right – Roombas are on sale right now, and you can buy them for yourself or as a gift for someone else. Best of all, there’s still time to get them before Christmas Day for all you last-minute shoppers out there (and don’t worry, I count myself among your number).
A robot vacuum saves a lot of time. While they aren’t suitable for deep cleaning, it’s incredibly nice to have a clean floor that’s free of clutter, especially if you don’t have to worry about cleaning it yourself. The iRobot Roomba i4+ EVO automatically disposes of itself in a clean area at the end of every sweeping period, and pauses to clean when full. It even has a special brush that makes it perfect for cleaning pet hair!
“I have a small home with a lot of legged furniture. I was worried that it would be difficult to map the house or successfully navigate these obstacles. I was wrong! The device is very accurate and cleans in more difficult areas than expected. Setup, mapping, and use require no participation or effort from me – just turn it on and forget about it!” recommended one reviewer.
Like a robot vacuum, the Braava jet m6 studies the layout of your home (or your kitchen, if most of the home is carpeted) and determines the most efficient way to clean it. It sprays water through a small hole in the front of the device and moves forward, allowing the floor cleaner to scrub the floor. Don’t worry about all the other floors, either! It has sensors that can sense when it is close to a carpet or kitchen rug and will move or rotate without spraying.
“This iRobot braava jet helps me a lot to keep my house clean! I love it. I am 100% satisfied,” said one verified customer.
