As a pet owner, nothing is truly infuriating more than having to deal with our pet hair. Yes, we can say that we speak on behalf of pet owners everywhere when it comes to this issue. We may love them very much, but their hair never fails to make us scratch our heads and sigh in disbelief. Sweeping the floor every single day may not be a physically demanding job, but when you have a pet hair, you must go the extra mile to make you absolutely sure that your house is perfectly clean. Sometimes this includes vigorous scrubbing the carpet, and sometimes a vacuuming session must also be thrown into the mix.
We are sure that many pet owners have perhaps asked themselves whether or not there was a powerful vacuum cleaner which let us do the job once. Would not it be wonderful to be able to vacuum the entire place and move onto the next chore we have in our hand?
It would definitely simplify our lives a little, that’s for sure. That question, coupled with the fact that our trusty vacuum cleaner had broken down just a few days ago, inspired us to go in our quest to finding the ultimate vacuum cleaner. Although we have to admit that we initially went on the market being pessimistic we would ever find the one, in the end we were as surprised as we were thrilled. We found the iRobot Roomba 980, the latest vacuum cleaner that completely fits the bill and then some. Yes, this vacuum is not only it has everything we need, it is also ten times better! Read on to find out.
iRobot Roomba 980 Review and Verdict
The important features: are they worth the money?
One of the first things that came into our mind when we first saw the vacuum cleaner was how compact it is. At the time, we had some reservations about this Roomba 980 because at the time we believed, when it comes to almost anything in life, the bigger is always the better.
We compared it to our previous vacuum cleaner and made a premature conclusion that, if our noticeably bigger vacuum was not as powerful as we would like, how would this compact vacuum stand a chance? But at the time we decided to still go ahead and purchase for one thing, and that is the fact that this vacuum cleaner is a robotic vacuum – something we have never encountered let alone experienced before. Of course, we had to assume the worst before we even gave it a try, but much to our surprise, the iRobot Roomba 980 proved us otherwise.
Imagine having a moment to catch up with your friend on the phone or paint your nails in the living room when you are supposed to be vacuuming – but this time, instead of skipping the chore altogether, your vacuum cleaner does it for you!
This is where our iRobot Roomba 980 review gets even more interesting. Our first try lasted for about an hour and it was a mindblowing experience. This incredible piece of appliance vacuumed the whole house perfectly and we could not even find a strand of pet hair that was left behind. Does that seem too good to be true? Not if you see all of the incredible features this vacuum cleaner has; see the following list for more information.
· Three stage cleaning system
Unlike many vacuum cleaners on the market, this one comes with stages as follows; loosening even the ficklest dirt, sucking it in one go, and ensuring the area is thoroughly cleaned before it finally moves on to the next area.
· Advanced sensors
This sensor system scans every section of the floor to target the dirty area. It guides the vacuum cleaner to work from the dirtier area before moving onto the much cleaner area.
· Cleaning auto-schedule
This feature ensures for easy programming, you can schedule cleaning session for 7-times in a row just by using the available buttons to set the time and date.
· A simple push-button control
Unlike many of its competitors on the market, this vacuum cleaner does not come with complex buttons. Instead, it is only equipped with a large button which will turn green indicating that the vacuum is ready to use. If it turns yellow, it indicates low battery whereas red indicates you have run out of battery.
What makes this vacuum cleaner superior?
It is clear to see that the vacuum cleaner does not only provide us with powerful performance, but also simple operation. Even if you cannot consider yourself a technology savvy individual, you can rest assured that you will know how to use this vacuum cleaner as if you have had the vacuum cleaner for the rest of your life. In terms of performance, we have been absolutely satisfied thus far. It does the work well and perhaps even better than having us do it manually.
The fact that it lasts for a little more than an hour is also one of ultimate proof that this vacuum cleaner also comes with an energy-saving system. Not only that, the fact that it is equipped with the patented Aerovac spinning brushes is perhaps one of the greatest thing about the vacuum cleaner – and that is exactly what sets the Roomba 980 from other similar units on the market.
It does not only come with such powerful suction ability, but it also comes with the aforementioned brush which has the ability to spin and loosen up every dirt, debris, and pet hair imaginable. Once it has been loosened up, the powerful suction of the vacuum cleaner does the rest of the job. Not stopping there, the vacuum cleaner takes it to greater heights to ensure thorough cleaning by scanning the whole area. All in all, a highly recommended product and we hope this iRobot Roomba 980 review helps you make the right decision.
