iRobot Roomba 560 Automatic Robotic Vacuum

iRobot 560 Roomba Vacuuming Robot, Black and Silver
Pros – iRobot 560 The black and silver pattern is appealing. This machine is considered quieter than some regular vacuums; that’s a plus too, because some vacuum cleaners can be very loud when operating. The iRobot 560 is also easy to program, can be used everyday, and performs edge and corner cleaning. The 560 also has the ability to continue to clean comfortably when moving from one floor surface to another. For instance, the i Robot vacuum cleaners move seamlessly from hardwood, to vinyl, to carpets. One of the best features iRobot Robots posses are they automatically return to their home-base to recharge themselves.
Cons – iRobot 560 The iRobot 560 machine may have intermediate issues with the automatic docking feature. Make sure the device has a clear path to the docking station. You also have to pay close attention to when the machine is full, and the brushes need to be cleaned after each cycle. The iRobot 560 requires maintenance to keep it running well, but can that be considered a con? Doesn’t everything require maintenance? In general, users give the iRobot 560 a very good review.
Ok, up next is the iRobot 330 Scooba Floor-Washing Robot. Now this is the best concept ever. Do you know anyone who wants to wash the kitchen floor? The word reviewer’s use for the iRobot 330 model most often is love. People just love this floor washing i Robot Vacuum Cleaner.

The Scooba 330 uses water, water and vinegar, or a Clorox based cleaning solution to scrub floors clean. The iRobot’s Scooba has a multistage cleaning process. It first clears the area of dust and dirt, followed by a washing stage, then a scrubbing stage which removes grease and grim. The final step in the process is the drying stage which leaves floors dry enough to walk on. What’s not to love?
One note about the iRobot Robots – all of these machines are bag-less. You just empty the compartments and they are ready to go again. The Roomba Robots are intuitive and soon figure out cleaning paths.
