Having to do an iRobot Roomba 530 review is far more interesting than any other usual vacuum cleaner, as the robot is the perfect device to have in your house doing all the cleaning while you are away.
Taking first things first, everyiRobot Roomba 530 for sale comes with a charging pack that includes a Base Station, a Virtual Wall, cleaner to keep the brushes clean and spare parts, like a corner brush that is ideal for getting rid of dust from corners, plus replaceable filters.
All you need to do once you purchase the iRobot is let it charge for approximately 24 hours and then set it free to clean the selected area. It requires no assembly whatsoever and it measures 3’’x 1’’ (H x D).
The iRobot Roomba 530 deals with dirt in various ways, due to the 3 control buttons it has on top. In addition, the robot can detect where the virtual wall and the Docking Station is, due to a sensor it comes embedded with, while its LED indicators show the robot’s status. Once the robot is set to start cleaning, all walls and obstacles are detected by the robot with the Light-Touch bumper that warns the robot of their existence and slows it down.
Also, you have nothing to worry about if you have stairs, since the robot can detect and avoid them too, due to the Cliff Avoidance Sensor. As for the dirt compartment, it has sufficient space to allow users to use the iRobot a couple of times before emptying it with an easy unclip.
Additionally, the wheels are adjustable depending on the height the robot has to overcome each time and make the transition easier, so everything that is up to 1cm higher than the floor can be rolled over successfully.
There have been many iRobot Roomba 530 ratings that concentrate on the robot’s ability to spot any hard dirt and stick to it until it is completely removed, which is something not commonly seen. Carpets are now thoroughly cleaned and you have more free time to use it as you please most!
Note that, if you need some extra comfort, you can go for the iRobot 560 model, instead of an iRobot Roomba 530 discounted, since the 560 comes with a remote control that lets you use the device without having to push the Clean button yourself.
As for the way it works, AWARE is held responsible for all. AWARE is computer software that controls the robots operation through numerous sensors it comes built-in with. Thanks to the AWARE technology the iRobot cleans, avoids obstacles and bumps, adjusts its wheels and does not fall down the stairs.
Each cleaning cycle lasts about 45 minutes before the robot scanning for the Base Station and head for it on order to recharge. Every charge is enough to clean 3 rooms.
