Review of the iRobot Roomba 630 Vacuum Cleaning Robot for Pets

About My House...

As the proud owner of three longhaired cats and one spunky Golden Retriever, I often find myself covered in animal dander. I have a housekeeper visit once a week, but even he can't combat the - dare I say - virulent animal fur that covers my beautiful carpet. I was looking for something to help me battle the fur and tried the iRobot Roomba 630 Vacuum Cleaning Robot for Pets. Here's my review...

What I Like About the iRobot Roomba 630 Vacuum Cleaning Robot for Pets

  • The setup was very easy and intuitive
  • The unit ran for a little more than an hour and then docked itself for recharging
  • The bumpers were sensitive enough that they did not topple some light ceramic floor pieces, nor did it damage any furniture
  • The unit is very quiet
  • The cleaning instructions are clear as are the instructions for how to replace parts

What I Dislike About the iRobot Roomba 630 Vacuum Cleaning Robot for Pets

I didn't actually have any complaints about this vacuum except for maybe the price.

Don't fall, little one!

What People Are Saying...

"Best buy ever. I'm actually writing this as I hear the beautiful sound of it working downstairs. Doesn't replace vacuuming, but if you don't like anything on your floors ever, this is the one must have. Worth every penny!"

"Love this!! Used to hate vacuuming and always had a backache when I was finished. Now my carpets are cleaned much more often and with no effort. Does a very thorough job and cuts down on dust throughout the house."

"Had it for 8 months now. Still loving it. It really does pick up the dirt off carpets and hardwood floors, and it's super easy to use and clean. We have another heavy duty vacuum with a dirt sensor on it and my wife, especially after we just got the Roomba, would test the Roomba's cleaning prowness by running the other vacuum over the same area afterwards to see if it had picked up all the dirt from our carpets. And it did. She's a believer now."
