We all love our adorable, furry pets. If only they didn’t shed their hair, life with them would be perfect. But since life isn’t perfect, iRobot created the Roomba 532 Pet Series. This vacuum cleaning robot picks up pet hair and dirt from your floors while you kick back and relax.
It boasts of a high-capacity sweeper bin that lets it hold a lot more pet hair and dander—which means less trips to the trash can for emptying. If you’re worried about this little gizmo causing damage to your furniture, put your fears to rest. It comes equipped with iRobot’s Light-Touch Bumper technology.
- Comes with an extra set of brushes and cleaning tools
- Long battery life: can vacuum up to three standard-sized rooms on a single charge
- Includes 2 virtual walls that prevent your Roomba from going through off-limit areas
- Two interchangeable bins: Vacuuming Debris Bin for daily cleaning and the High Capacity Sweeper Bin for tougher jobs.
The iRobot Roomba line holds quite a good record when it comes to consumer reviews. This model, for example, has earned a cool average rating of 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon.com. Nearly 80 percent of all 167 reviewers gave it a rating of 4 stars or higher.
Customers who loved this product were delighted by its suction power. Admittedly, it’s not as good as your heavy-duty, human-operated vacuum cleaner, but it’s powerful enough to pick up pet hair and dander. Using this tiny vacuum cleaner every day will definitely make you use your bigger vacuum cleaner a lot less. The best part about the Roomba 532 is of course, the convenience it offers. The joy of not having to push around a heavy vacuum is undeniably a big plus.
On the other hand, owning a Roomba 532 is not without its own little challenges. For your unit to keep working smoothly, you have to be quite diligent at cleaning the brushes regularly—especially if you have long-haired pets. Also, if you are quite the pet collector, you might want to consider another vacuum cleaner. The Roomba 532 is efficient at cleaning, yes, but judging from a few reviews we’ve come across, it might not be able to keep up if you have more than three furry buddies running around your home.
Another thing to remember—don’t expect the Roomba 532 to be so smart that it won’t need your help every now and then. This is especially true when you’re using the Roomba for the first time. Expect it to get lost or get stuck under a piece of furniture while it’s getting familiar with the room. After a few days though, you should start seeing improvements until you won’t have to “babysit” it anymore.
The Roomba 532 is not without its own faults—but they’re not so bad at all. This little robot cleaner is a great vacuum for daily use, and with the cool, hands-free operation—what’s not to love?
