First Advantage – Superior Technological Product Capabilities
When choosing a product, one of the most important components to be aware of is the product’s capabilities. You certainly do not want to purchase a product that seems wonderful, but is unable to handle the jobs that you want to it to do. Below are the capabilities of the iRobot Roomba 790 and what it can do for you.
Near Perfect Cleaning
First and foremost, the iRobot is especially capable in picking up and removing 98% or dirt, dust, and pet hair from your home’s floor and atmosphere. This capability is possible through the product’s iAdapt Responsive Navigation Technology, which allows the vacuum to target dirt and debris in even the toughest and most difficult to reach spots. When moving over the floor, the iRobot Roomba uses this software technology and its sensors to bypass every obstacle to ensure that the floor is as clean as possible. This specific technology makes cleaning a breeze because your floor is getting the detailed and careful cleaning that it should with this self-monitoring technology.
In addition, the cleaning technology also utilizes a 3-Stage Cleaning with AeroVac Series 2. This means, as the product cleans it uses spinning brushes that cleans along edge walls, counter rotating brushes that act like a dustpan and broom, and lastly it also incorporates powerful AeroVac Series 2 Vacuum that has extremely strong suction.
Dirt Detection and Action
The iRobot is also capable of finding the dirtiest parts of your floor and cleaning them as effectively as possible. This feature is possible through its Dirt Detect Series Two Technology. This technology finds the dirtiest areas of your floor and performs concentrated cleaning on that area to ensure that the floor is cleaning as thoroughly as possible. This makes things much easier for you, as it ensures that you do not need to worry that your home is not being cleaned as it should. You also do not need to waste time cleaning those difficult and especially dirty areas because the iRobot takes care of it for you.
Room to Room Navigation System
If you are worried that this product will stay stuck in one room to clean a certain area, then worry no longer. The iRobot is also capable of maneuvering throughout the house on its own through the room to room navigation system that utilizes what is known as Virtual Wall Lighthouses. This technology confines the Roomba to cleaning one room, and when the room is complete, the sensors detect the level of cleanliness. If all check’s out ok, then the technology signals to the Roomba that the next room can be start. You do not need to pick it up and move it either, as the Roomba is capable of moving through your Rooms on its own.
Furthermore, many homeowners have stairs in their home, which can be a problem. However, the Roomba is an extremely advanced product. It self-adjusts between floor types, and it has cliff detecting technologies that prevent it from falling down stair steps.
Second Advantage – High Level of Convenience
When choosing a home vacuum system that is self-operating, some models may seem great, but they still lack elements that make cleaning convenient for you. With this product, you do not need to worry, as it is still extremely convenient to use. Below are ways that highlight how easy the system is to use.
Dust Bin Notification
With traditional vacuums, you need to rely on your own guesswork to know whether or not the dustbin is full. On the other hand, the Roomba makes this process much easier for you by notifying you if the dust bin needs to be emptied. This way, you can simply empty it when given notice and leave it to do its job afterwards without any hassle.
Touchpad Command Center
Buttons can be annoying and old-fashioned to use. The Roomba also uses a state-of-the-art touchpad command center that functions as a wireless device. You can use this command center from anywhere in the house, and you do not need the device to be directly next to you. Making a change to the device’s settings is simple as it all works at the touch of a button anywhere you are.
Want your Roomba to clean at a certain time when you aren’t or are home? This product does that for you. You can schedule it to clean anytime you want, which provides you with immense convenience when it comes to making sure that your home is spotless. You can schedule up to 7 cleaning sessions per week with the Roomba.
Third Advantage – What it Comes With
The quality of a product is also determined by what it comes with. This particular Roomba product includes one battery, two HEPA filters, one side brush, one bristle brush, one beater brush, three virtual lighthouses, one self-charging home base, one wireless command center, three extra sets of HEPA filters, three extra side brushes, two extra beater brushes, two cleaning tools, a screwdriver, and accessory case.
First Disadvantage – Not Effective on All Stair Types
While the Roomba is able to maneuver on stairs and not fall off, some stair types make this feature less effective. For example, if your stairs have rounded edges and slippery surfaces the Roomba is less able to keep itself grounded to the step. However, with the virtual lighthouses you can prevent the Roomba from accessing the area and thus becoming prone to danger.
Second Disadvantage – HEPA Filters are Expensive to Replace
For many, one of the worst things is purchasing a great product that still requires you to purchase more features that are quite costly. Unfortunately, this vacuum is one of those products. While it does come with a decent number of HEPA filters, they will only last you a certain amount of time and then you are required to purchase your own. They can be expensive, so it is certainly something you should take into consideration.
Third Disadvantage– The Dust Bin is Not Large
Another disadvantage for many is that the dustbin fills up quite quickly. With such a small unit, there is only so much space that is available to store and carry around dust. While the need to constantly empty the dust bin is a very minor inconvenience, it can still be problematic for some users.
Overall, the iRobot Roomba 790 Vacuum Cleaning Robot for Pet and Allergies is a highly technological product that provides its users with superior capabilities in terms of vacuuming suction, self-operation, convenience, dirt detection, and cleaning. Those that purchase this product can be extremely hands-off and do not need to interfere with the operation and cleaning process that the product uses. On the other hand, when it comes to disadvantages, unfortunately it is not effective on all stairs, replacement of the HEPA filters can be frequent and costly, and the dust bin is not large. For many, these advantages are minor but they do pose some sort of inconvenience. In summary, if you are looking for a product that is extremely useful in cleaning your floors from nearly everything, including pet hair, then the iRobot Roomba is one of those products that can get the job done.
