The iRobot Roomba 650 should be a God-send if you are fed up of vacuum cleaners choking up on pet hair! Yes, if you are looking for a simpler solution to remove shed pet hair, this should be it.

This robotic floor cleaner functions on a winning combination of powerful brushes and suction which do not get clogged by pet hair and debris. In fact, this robotic vacuum cleaner was designed specifically for pet owners!

3 stage cleaning system

This machine runs on a three-stage cleaning system. It first loosens the material, secondly removes debris using its high power suction and thirdly ensures the area is thoroughly cleaned before moving on. So efficient is it at removing debris that it often picks up debris other devices leave behind!

Advanced sensors

The iRobot Roomba has an exceptional sensor system which detects the dirtiest areas on floors. By spending more time on the dirtiest areas, it cleans these areas as well as the rest of the flooring. By cleaning every section of the flooring, you needn’t return to clean up missed spots.

Push button control

Anyone can use the iRobot Roomba as it’s so easy to use, with a large button on its top. The button turns green when switched on, indicating it’s ready for use. If the battery goes low, the button goes yellow and turns red when the battery is dead.

Pressing the dock button sends the vacuum cleaner to the home base for storing and recharging purposes. Pressing the spot button programs the iRobot to clean only selected areas, perfect for small clean-up jobs.

Auto-schedule cleanings

Just press a few buttons to program and schedule the iRobot for a maximum of 7 cleaning sessions on your preferred dates and time.

Optimal suction power

The robotic carpet cleaner has a patented AreoVac feature with spinning brushes along its sides which loosens debris for the powerful suction to pick up. This design helps the iRobotRoomba 650 lift up all the dirt and debris other products usually leave behind.
