So Hubby was extra nice this year for Christmas. He went WAY over budget and I’m not complaining one single bit. He bought me a ROOMBA!!! I was so excited I could do the Rumba!!
For those of you who might not know a Roomba is a vacuum cleaner that works all on it’s own. I know. Too wonderful to believe, right? I sure thought so. Here’s a link to the one I got the Roomba 960.
I had seen and heard about them before but…
1-they cost too much
2-would they work on hard wood floors that have rugs
3-ya, right? could they really work.
Well Hubby had our son pick one up and he got a really good deal on it….Hubby gave it to me and I was still pretty skeptical. Ruby was too…. The pictures I took aren’t the best as every time Ruby was flinching to get away from it. See?
It goes right over the floors with no assistance from me.
I can set it, using my smart phone, to vacuum overnight while we are sleeping. If I’m in town and Hubby calls to tell me company is coming. I can make it start vacuuming. CRAZY, I know!!
The Roomba can remove itself from a docking station and it can put itself back on the docking station. MARVELOUS!
It seriously does an excellent job. Hopping over my rugs wasn’t a big deal at all except for my living room rug. It’s extra plush. I can lift it, set it on the rug and push the spot clean button and the rug will be done in no time at all.
I’ve waited to write about it as I wanted to be sure I really loved it and it worked over a length of time. I do love it…and so far, no problems at all.
It was so funny…the thing would vacuum and Hubby and I were mesmerized standing there and watching it. I started joking with him that “I thought this was suppose to save us time”…so far we spent just as much time standing there and watching it as we would have it we were actually doing the vacuuming!! HA!
I know this is a “too much information photo” but look. The Roomba picked up all of this in one vacuuming!
Well that’s a lie..kind of. I had to stop and dump it in the middle of the cleaning.
I have so been fretting about Ruby shedding like she does. I feel like people who see all that dog hair in my house won’t think I actually clean. I do. I vacuum most every night. It’s gotten to be so annoying. This Roomba is a needed thing for me if I’m running a childcare business out of home.
I couldn’t be happier! I’ve had it since Christmas and I HIGHLY recommend it. Boy I wish I had this when I was having shoulder issues. Who knew? I really does work. I’m starting to feel like “Jane Jetson” from the cartoon the Jetsons! I have a vacuum that vacuums for me just like Jane would.
