Alright, but not good enough
Leaves Dog Hair
Need To Prep Home First
Between Regular Cleanings
My home is 1600 sq ft, all on one level, with Brazilian cherrywood floors and a few area rugs. I have a young pug, who sheds a reasonable amount, so I loved the idea of an automatic vacuum cleaner that could run on a daily schedule. However, the Roomba 760 does not perform well-enough. It does better on the hardwood, where it normally can pick everything up. The cons here are that I have to prep the house before using it, because it moves too quickly and will crash into things on the floor like vases, fireplace tools, and the legs of more-delicate furniture. In addition, I have to move power cords for things like floor lamps, because the Roomba will get stuck on them and won't let go. I could put up with that for the convenience of a clean house on a daily basis, but the bigger problem is with the area rugs, where the Roomba just won't pick up half of the dog hair. I have even tried the spot clean mode on the Roomba, where it focuses on cleaning only a small area (about a 3 foot diameter circle), but even in this mode, the Roomba leaves the same dog hair behind. If I didn't have a dog, I would think that this vacuum is amazing, but because I do, I end up still wanting to vacuum manually every day or every other day. In fact, I am on this website now to research the best manual vacuum to use instead of the Roomba.
