There's nothing like having a nice, clean home to come back to after a long day. Especially when there's a Roomba handling the cleaning for you. Wait, what? That's right — Roombas are on super sale right now, and you can snag one for yourself or as a gift for someone else for up to 40% off. Best of all, there's still time to get them before Father's Day for all of you last-minute shoppers out there (and don't worry, I count myself among your number).
A robot vacuum saves a tremendous amount of time, and while they aren't ideal for deep-cleaning, it's incredibly nice to have a clean floor with next to no crumbs underfoot. If you're just beginning your robovac journey, this highly rated iRobot Roomba 694 is a great one to start with. Its 3-stage cleaning system picks up dust, dirt and debris from both carpets and hard flooring, and has sensors to keep it from falling down stairs or bumping into furniture. Plus, you can schedule cleanings via the iRobot Home app, and it'll run for up to 90 minutes before automatically returning to its charging dock.
"I can't imagine my life without this Roomba," wrote an impressed shopper. "If you have a dog that sheds nonstop and floors with a constant layer of dog hair, look no further ... I went from vacuuming for 2-3 hours a week to fully letting my Roomba do the job and taking back my free time. We use the Roomba every day and our floors have never looked better."
What's better than having a robot vacuum? Having one that empties itself, of course! The iRobot Roomba i3+ EVO automatically dumps into the clean base at the end of every vacuuming session, and even pauses mid-clean if it fills up. It also has a special brush that makes it ideal for cleaning up pet hair.
"Having a husband who tracks in dirt from work boots and a Australian shepherd/lab who sheds and tracks in dirt from the yard, this thing is a lifesaver," raved a happy reviewer. "I have it set to run every morning after we leave for the day. It self-charges and empties into the canister. Being pregnant, this has saved me energy and my back. Totally recommend. It gets all the dirt and dog hair up great."
Like a robot vacuum, the Braava Jet M6 learns 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 out a small hole in the front of the device and then moves forward, allowing the cleaning mechanism on bottom to scrub the floor. Don't worry about the rest of the floors, either. It has sensors that detect when it's near carpet or even a kitchen mat and will move over or around it without spraying.
"We have a large open kitchen/dining/living room area with hardwood floors," shared one shopper. "We also have good-sized adjoining bath/shower/tub/toilet areas with tile floors. iRobot cleans both equally well, removing more grit from our tiles than we ever would have dreamed existed. Our hardwood shines. iRobot now seems as necessary as our stove or coffee maker — and much more interesting to observe in action."
