Those of youse on my Facebook friend list saw this post about ten minutes ago:
So I thought I’d point those interested souls to this site:
It’s the iRobot site and we also use the Scooba for scrubbing the wood floors. They even have iRobot Looj for cleaning gutters; how cool is that! Here are some FAQs about the Roomba:
Can Roomba be used on deep carpets and hard floors?
Yes! Roomba picks up an amazing amount of dirt, dust, pet hair and other debris from your carpets and hard floors. Roomba automatically transitions from one floor surface to the next, including carpets, rugs, tile, linoleum and hardwood floors.
How do Virtual Walls and Virtual Wall Lighthouses work?
A Virtual Wall® creates an adjustable, invisible, infrared beam that Roomba will not cross. Virtual Walls are used to block off-limit areas in your home. We have three versions, including a compact Virtual Wall and an Auto Virtual Wall.
A Virtual Wall Lighthouse™ can be set to Virtual Wall mode or Lighthouse mode. Lighthouse mode ensures the most efficient room-to-room cleaning. It confines Roomba to one room until that room is thoroughly vacuumed then directs Roomba to the next room. It can also be set to Virtual Wall mode to block off-limit areas. To determine Virtual Wall or Lighthouse compatibility with your Roomba, see the Virtual Wall and Lighthouse product pages.
How do children and pets react to Roomba?
Everyone’s children and pets react differently; most tend to be curious at first, then get used to it soon after. In fact, many customers write letters (and send photos) about how entertained their pets are with their new robotic friend. Roomba is ideal for keeping up with pet hair, crumbs and everyday messes that accumulate on your rugs and hard floors.
I ordered mine on Amazon.com and got them within days. What astounds you about technology today? :O)
