If you are looking for a new vacuum, look no further than the iRobot Roomba 530. Don’t mess with tangled cords and clumsy attachments as you try and maneuver around and under furniture with a clunky traditional vacuum cleaner – the Roomba 530 from iRobot will take care of cleaning your floors for you, giving you more free time that would otherwise be spent on tedious household chores.

Set it up and watch it go

The iRobot Roomba 530 makes vacuuming easier than ever before. Simply plug in the charging station, place the virtual walls to mark off the area you want cleaned, and the Roomba 530 will take care of the rest.

First, the Roomba 530 will map out your rooms as it cleans, making adjustments at the rate of 67 times per second, so that it can avoid ledges, clean in the corners and under furniture, and get those areas that receive the most traffic in your home. The soft bumpers mean that while it cleans and maps out your hoome, it will not scuff or damage furniture, walls, or doorways.

With a charge made for up to 2 hours of continuous vacuuming, the iRobot Roomba 530 will give your home the thorough cleaning treatment you desire, with none of the backache.

A deep cleaning with every pass

The Roomba 530 is fitted with brushes and a cleaning head that can adjust on the fly from hardwood to linoleum to thick pile carpeting, so that your floor gets the treatment it needs. The Roomba 530 also has built-in sensors that do more than just navigate around corners and under furniture. The Rooma can detect dirt particles per square inch, so that it can give special attention where needed.

Unlike other robot vacuum cleaners, the Roomba 530 can handle transitions in the topography of your floor. With a smart reverse function and brush sensors, the Rommba 530 will not get caught on electrical cords, shoelaces, small toys, and can adjust for mats and area rugs on your floor. This makes the Roomba the perfect household assistant, rather than something you have to constantly monitor and go across the house to fix inorder to get the job done.

When the Roomba 530 gets full of dirst, it will alert you that it is time to empty the collection tray. The pull-out tray is easy to remove and empty when the Roomba gets full, letting you dispose of the collected dirt dust will no mess or fuss.

When the Roomba is done cleaning your house, it travels back to its charging station where it waits until you need it next.

Cleans only where you want it to

The iRobot Roomba 530 comes with two sensors that you can place to create invisible walls. This means that the Roomba can clean the living room while you are in the kitchen, but not go beyond the boundaries you set up so that it doesn’t get underfoot while you are cooking. The invisible walls are also great for letting the Roomba 530 quietly take care of other rooms in the home without disturbing you.
