    Meet Roomba, our robotic little vacuum that cleans so you don’t have to. You’ll be astounded by how well Roomba cleans – just press the button and he’ll set to work while you get on with more enjoyable things.

    • Saves time and effort.
    • Detects a carpet from a hard floor and adjusts accordingly.
    • Timer feature – set his chores to begin when it suits you best.
    • So intelligent he can tell when the room is clean and will even take himself back to base to charge.
    • Fast counter-rotating brushes pick up hair, debris and dirt.
    • Side brushes gets into nooks and crannies.
    • Filter captures dust and allergens.
    • Works his way around and under furniture.
    • A 'virtual wall' confines Roomba to one area until the entire floor is vacuumed, while sensors prevent him from falling downstairs.
    • Anti-tangle technology stops Roomba from getting stuck on cords, rug and carpet tassels.
    • Approx. 90 minutes cleaning per charge.

    Stand aside – the Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner allows you to have clean, dust-free floors and carpets without lifting a finger. He's really easy to use – just press the magic button and leave the expert to it. It’s the ultimate cleaning experience, without you having to be there!

    The Roomba has refined dirt detection, sensing the areas he’s needed the most and staying until the job is done. So why not give in to the new generation of vacuuming, and give yourself back some well-earned 'me' time!

    "Astonishing!"
    Miss OBrien

    02 March 2011

    I don't have a name for mine... but I was amazed. I honestly thought this was going to be nothing more than an expensive fancy carpet sweeper. But no, it goes round and round for what seems an eternity, but does an amazing job cleaning, vacuuming, and even lifting the pile of my carpet as well as any upright might do. I'm disabled with MS, so anything that saves me housework or lifting and bending and so on is a boon. This is a definite boon. I only have to bend once to set if off and once again to collect it. Just wish it did stairs! I separately bought another docking station for upstairs, so all I have to do is carry the Rooma itself upstairs, rather than the whole caboodle. It did get a bit stuck a couple of times, in that it collected hairs around the brushes which seemed to cause it to sort of "choke". Once sorted, off it went to finish off its job. I empty the dust container and clean the brushes each time to make sure it doesn't get clogged up. I find if I let it do the entire downstairs in one go, it doesn't do as good a job as when I let it do one room at a time, by shutting it in. When I let it do one room at a time, it spends what seems like hours at it, going round in circles till its every corner. If I let it do the whole of downstairs in one go, it seems to get lost or confused between which room to spend more time in, but still gets most of it done, just not quite as well as room by room. I forgot to put the virtual wall in place on one occasion by a shallow step, and it fell over and called out for help, ha! Love it.

    "Betty Roomba"
    Celia Bircumshaw

    16 January 2011

    First of all when we ordered Betty she arrived the next day. We absolutely love our new cleaning lady. I never thought a round cleaner would be able to do carpet edges and corners but Betty does this most efficiently. We have a large rambling house on different levels and have up to now used one of the best industrial quality vacuum cleaners. Betty knocks spots off it. On top of that we have a very fluffy cream Birman cat and all our carpets are plain medium colours. It took Betty a couple of weeks to get rid if years of residue but now the house is immaculate. As we are both in our 70's Betty is a Godsend. We are even thinking of having another one for upstairs.

    "Don't hesitate-buy one!"

    I was sceptical whether this would really do the job but it is brilliant. It whizzes around the room, allowing me to do other things while my floors are being cleaned. It cleans at least as well as my upright, and in some cases better as it will get under most of the beds and furniture. it needs a little TLC with cleaning of the brushes after use but it is a small price to pay for all the work it saves me. It is quite a high initial outlay but totally worth the price, and much much cheaper than paying someone else to vacuum. Buying from Lakeland I had the usual fast delivery and the peace of mind of brilliant customer services should anything go wrong. If you are unsure, do get one-you wont regret it.
