Frank and I have 6 kids, so you can imagine the amount of dust and dirt that can be tracked into the house! Since we have white carpets in our home (not by our choice, but because we rent), we have made a rule that all children remove their shoes at the door before walking on the carpet. While this keeps the carpets a lot cleaner than otherwise, we still get dust, dirt and other items on our carpet…and they really stand out on our white carpet! We have wanted the iRobot® Roomba® 870 for quite some time, so when Best Buy gave us the opportunity to check it out and use it in our home, we jumped on it!

It was fun unpacking the iRobot® Roomba® 870. There weren’t too many parts in it and it was easy to set up. In fact, it only took a few minutes to unbox it, set it up and get it running! Plus, it’s super easy to use and does a great job cleaning the floors. I mean, how often do you get to sit back and watch your housework get done….by an robot??

The iRobot® Roomba® 870 is your helping hand for cleaner floors, every day. What is so great about it?

  • Clean floors like never before with the revolutionary AeroForce™ Performance Cleaning System. Their most powerful vacuuming system yet delivers 5x the suction and removes up to 50% more dirt, dust, hair and debris.
  • Let Roomba help you with the hard work. Just press Clean or schedule Roomba to vacuum when it’s most convenient for you. And no need to hunt Roomba down– it automatically returns to its Home Base® to recharge between cleanings.
  • Roomba leads the charge in robotic vacuuming. Roomba’s slim profile lets it clean under furniture, including beds, skirted furniture, tables and cabinetry while the spinning side brush grabs dirt and debris from tough places like wall edges and corners.

Other awesome features:

    • iAdapt® Responsive Navigation Technology with cliff-detection sensors
    • Large HEPA filter keeps dust, dander, and other allergens out of the air
    • iRobot® XLife™ Extended Life Battery provides double the battery cycles
    • Bin Full indicator light lets you know when the bin needs emptying
    • 2 Virtual Wall Barriers keep Roomba in the rooms you want to vacuum & out of the ones you don’t
    • No more cleaning brushes! Tangle-free AeroForce™ Extractors are virtually maintenance free, making it even easier for Roomba to tackle daily dirt build-up  and leave more time for you to enjoy your day.
    • Roomba’s large HEPA filter keeps dust, dander, and other allergens out of the air – ideal for homes with pets and allergy sufferers
    • Just press CLEAN or schedule Roomba to vacuum when it’s most convenient for you.  

We absolutely love the iRobot® Roomba® 870 in our home! I would definitely say that if you have little kids with little toys (like LEGOs or action figures), be sure to have those picked up off the floor, so they don’t cause jams or delays in the vacuuming process! Not only is the iRobot® Roomba® 870 great at cleaning our floors, but it’s also great entertainment for the kids!

    This sounds like a great product. I have a lot of allergies so this would help. It would be perfect for our living.

  2. Jamie says:

    I don’t have one, but my in-laws do and I always drool over it when I am at their house! I guess only a mom would be that excited for a vacuum! 🙂 I would use it all over the place!! Mainly on my laminate floors though…they always look dusty!

  3. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    I could use one of those to chase after the kids as they leave a trail of crumbs. What a nifty gadget.

  4. Amanda says:

    Ho amazingly magical is that? I usually get all my cleaning done in a day but never have time for the floors this would certainly help.

  5. Roomba’s are so handy. It’s great how much they clean. Our dogs are scared of it though but it’s such a lifesaver.

  6. Carra D says:

    I did a job with irobot when they first came out and they gave me one. I loved it. Its so handy to have! My cats just look at it like what is this thing?

  7. My parents and in-laws both have a roomba. And the funny thing is, my toddler is scared of it when it’s on. Well, I should say, was scared of it. He hasn’t seen it since he was much younger.

    If I had a roomba, I would definitely use it in the kitchen and family room area. Our kitchen collects so many crumbs lately.

  8. I would love to have one of these. I think my kids would get a kick out of it too.

  9. Oh I wish I had one of these! I hate taking out the vacuum and lugging it around. These are amazing.

  10. This is definitely included in my bucket list. I really want one of this to make my life a little easier lol.

  11. michele d says:

    Sounds like a great vacuum although it might be too expensive for my means. I bet it cleans awesome though.

  12. Angela says:

    I have always wanted one of these, it just amazes me how this works. Something we could have never dreamed of as kids! Thanks for sharing!

  13. I do not have an irobot. But I would totally get one.

  14. I could most certainly use one of these! It would make my cleaning days a lot easier!

  15. Jacqueline says:

    My cat wants a Roomba so badly lol. I’ve seen the Youtube vids of pets riding around on top of them all day and I think they’re hilarious! I would love one because I’m sick of all the cat hair on my tile floor!

  16. I love the idea of laying on the couch with my feet kicked up while a robot cleans the house! Nice!

  17. Debbie Denny says:

    I really want one. I would like to just watch it for a bit. So cool.

  18. Rosey says:

    I’ve always wondered how these work. They are sure neat sounding. I love that they’d go under the bed!

  19. Krystal says:

    This is an awesome gadget to have to help clean the house! I love how easy and fast it is!

  20. LOVE the Roomba. We have one too, but it’s the older one. Your pictures and video are great. It really does an incredible job and is definitely a time saver. Thanks for sharing! We have been considering purchasing a new one!

  21. Danielle says:

    I’ve been DYING for one of these! I’m so curious if it would work in my living room though because I have a small living room with big furniture.

  22. I love the digital features of this Roomba. How bad is it that I’d like to try out one of things not because of the cleaning it will do, but because it looks so darn fun to have in the house… How no clue that Roomba’s had HEPA filters.

  23. Melissa says:

    I have always wanted an irobot roomba BUT I thought there is no way it really cleans well. I can’t believe all the digital features and the HEPA filters. I had no idea! Now to really consider this again. Thanks for your awesome review.

  24. Chrysa says:

    I have been wanting to try a Roomba! We have a big dog and four cats and that means lots of pet hair every day!

  25. CourtneyLynne says:

    these vacuums are totally awesome!!! I had one but my cat was obsessed with chasing the thing and ended up killing it one day -_-

  26. dogvills says:

    I would love to have an iRobot. It will help me with all those dog hair. I like that we can schedule the vaccum

  27. Brandy says:

    This is really such a great invention, ever. I so must have one and love that you have shared how this works for your home! Appreciate learning more about Roomba at a more personal level, through blogs!

  28. kristin says:

    This is exactly what I need. Perfect for dust bunnies, or in our case Bruno bunnies.

  29. We have another brand of robot vacuum and we absolutely love it! I was skeptical at first, but when I saw how well they take care of pet hair I was convinced.

  30. This is so crazy. I dreamed about the Roomba last night. I obviously need a vacation from my crumb covered floor. LOL

  31. I’m totally getting one of these! I need it now.

  32. Natalie says:

    Oh how this would make life so much easier. We don’t have carpets, the whole house is hardwood floors and it’s annoying to sweep so much.

  33. Cora Alvarez says:

    Having a robot vacuum cleaner must be amazing! The Roomba is absolutely lovely! Thank you for sharing! Greets!
