DIY Diary

First hand DIY experiences, tips, and suggestions from an average DIY family!

For years, I walked past I-Robot’s Roomba and though to myself, “Who would spend that much money on a vacuum?” It wasn’t until I saw one in action that I finally understood!

We are not rich people. We are, on a good day, middle class, so luxury items like Roomba are not a common occurrence in our home. In fact, we had to save up for a few weeks to even get the Roomba, but it was worth it. Now, don’t get me wrong. I am not promoting this because it is sponsored. I am promoting it because I really love it that much.

The I-Robot Roomba has saved me so much time. In our home, we have a variety of flooring: shag carpet, high pile carpet, hardwood, linoleum, and laminate. Our Roomba can handle it all!

What’s the Difference?

There are many different versions of the I-Robot Roomba, so let’s compare them!

Roomba 675

This is the cheapest version of I-Robot’s Roomba. At one time, it did not connect to wifi, but that has been changed!

It can/has:
– clean hardwood floors and carpets

– 3x cleaning power (This just means it has a little brush that pulls dirt from the walls to be vacuumed.)
– self charging (it takes itself to the charging port)
– Dirt detecting technology (Roomba will notice when the floors are dirtier in one area and circle around to reclean that area)
– clean under or around furniture
edge sweeping brush
– connect to wifi and be used through an app
scheduled cleaning

It does not:
– come with wall barriers
(which can keep the Roomba out of a certain room that you choose)
– have special rubber brushes (which helps with different flooring types)
– have a high efficiency filter that capture mold
– clean an entire level of your house*
– deliver cleaning reports with each scheduled cleaning
– customize cleaning preferences
(this is a nifty setting that allows you to specifically adjust how clean you want each room)
– empty on it’s own
– have smart mapping (it will not map your house to know exactly where to go)
– clean or schedule by room
