It’s tough to keep your home clean all the time, especially if you have a family, a pet, a full-time job and, well, a life. Enter the iRobot Roomba i7+ (7150), a hands-free vacuum that’ll make your floors sparkle at the push of a button. Right now, Amazon has a renewed model on sale for $420, or $137 off its list price and the lowest price we've seen it! Also a smart home device, you can sync it to your smartphone via the iRobot Home app to control and use it while you’re away. It’ll even know which room is which — tell it to clean your living room and bedroom one day, and kitchen another. You can clean up after your pets when you’re at work or create a schedule for touchups throughout the week. It’s even compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant for voice commands.
How does the Roomba i7+ work its magic? Intelligent sensors guide the robot around your home, under and around furniture and away from drop-offs like stairs. Dual rubber brushes grab dirt and debris from hardwood and carpet, while capturing up to 99 percent of mold, dust mites, pet hair, pollen and other allergens.
One skeptical shopper wrote, "At first...it spent forever bumping around and mapping our house...but then, like magic, the maps filled in on my app and I could see how it had learned the layout of the house. This little badass was roaming my house, vacuuming dust like crazy, and then alerting me on my phone when it completed a job or whenever it was in trouble."
Saving you even more stress, the Roomba i7+ also empties itself thanks to an automatic dirt disposal feature. Once the robot vacuum is full, it returns to its charging base station to dispose of its contents and then it goes back on patrol for more dust, debris, pet hair and more in your home. All you have to do is empty its charging base and you can continue enjoying life without vacuuming.
One customer says the iRobot Roomba i7+ nearly outperforms their Dyson: "I did a thorough vacuuming with my Dyson before setting the Roomba to do its thing. It picked up an embarrassing amount of hair, and continues to do so...The mapping feature is perfect! We run it over the carpeted bedrooms while we are home with zero issues."
Says another fan: "We found ourselves having to constantly sweep or vacuum inside our back sliding door because of the dog dragging dirt, mulch, leaves into the family room. We have a short haired dog that moderately sheds, the i7+ has had no problem picking up the dog hair without clogging. We have wall-to-wall carpet in one room and hardwood/hard surface floors with area rugs in a couple other rooms, the i7+ has had no problem [transitioning] from the hard surface to rug (and back again) and cleaning all of them.
