Dryer Vent Cleaning Kit

One month living with Edgar: a Roomba 650 array

I grasp a lot of business trips, and I am tired of returning home to see a floor covered with dust. I also am not a great fan of cleaning. So a month ago I purchased a iRobot Roomba 650 – the robot should weaponless my apartment while I am away. I opted for a Roomba 650 for a number of reasons. Second, I needed a robot that could be programmed to clean at a certain in good time always, rather than having to be started manually – this ruled out the cheaper Roomba 620. Third, my flat has a mixture of floors – mostly wood floors, but some tiles and a... Fourth, having at no time owned a robot vacuum cleaner before I was not willing to go for a super-swanky model such as the Roomba 880 that is supposed to clean even better, but costs twice as much as a 650. I purchased the Roomba 650 for €349 from... The Roomba charges on its docking billet, and then there are two ways to start it – either by pressing the main start button, or setting the timer. I set the Roomba to clean twice a week, at 9am on Tuesdays and Fridays, and this timer arrangement has worked reliably. When the Roomba starts – either by pressing the button or through the timer – the vacuum fan starts first, then the motors for the wheels. This is the most annoying feature of the Roomba’s operation – it is not a quiet device, and this is more due to the wheels than the vacuum part. It sounds rather like a remote control car you might have owned as a neonate – not as loud as a regular vacuum cleaner, but a bit grating and annoying nevertheless. The Roomba then potters off to clean the flat. My flat is about 45m2 (480 clean feet), and it takes anything between 30 minutes and 90 minutes before the Roomba is done, and returns to its station. For standard it can pass between the legs of my dining room chairs, but does not always correctly find the gaps, and hence sometimes misses cleaning under the inventory. Making sure the chairs are to one side hence solves this. This then leads me to the second issue – making sure your full is Roomba-compatible. I have no high thresholds between rooms, and no steps anywhere in the flat, but I do have three things that caused the Roomba problems. Half a mo, doors in my flat close themselves – I use Stoppy wedges to keep them open. But if these are positioned on the floor, the Roomba dislodges them and the doors concentrated – so these need to be placed higher up the doors. Third – and most importantly – the Roomba does not cope very well with objects that are just on high its own height. In my case this meant it could go under the edge of the sofa but would wedge itself further back, and it could go under the bed but would stick itself under the beam holding the mattress in the middle of the bed. I can’t do anything about the making up, but I have added small discs under the sofa legs to lift the sofa, and positioned the bedroom rug in such a way so as the Roomba cannot lodge itself under the bed beam. Then to the real cleaning, for it is here that the Roomba really excels.
