Don’t let the compact size deceive you, this unit is still powerful enough for the best clean possible.

We can all attest that no matter how hard you try to avoid it, small bits of dirt eventually find their way to your floor. The Roomba 675 vacuum cleaner impressed by utilizing the dirt detection sensors, which spot the dirt particles and adjust the cleaning power of the device to match the amount of dirt detected. The company chose to retain the iAdapt navigation feature. Thanks to the smart sensors, it seamlessly navigates and maneuvers around obstacles and adapts to suit the floor and deliver a polished look. The makers added the iRobot invisible Virtual walls to limit and confine the movement of the vacuum beside the physical walls. Unlike conventional vacuums, you will love the fact that it is exceptionally quiet so you can keep watching, working or studying without disturbing noises.

The manufacturer struck a real note with the 3-stage cleaning system. It is effective in doing the most fundamental job of sucking up dirt and makes easy work of vacuuming stubborn particles out of even thick carpet. The iRobot 675 captures and collects the finest of particles, pet dander and leaves your finished surfaces looking squeaky clean. There is no cleaning task that is too hard for this device, no matter the type of finished floor you have in mind. Whichever type of floor, with the edge sweeping brush, you can be certain that no dirt or dust will be left in corners or under the furniture. How thoughtful of the company to include an auto-adjusting cleaning head that automatically adapts the height to ensure close contact and a crisp clean.

The build quality is solid and the workmanship impressive, the company used premium material to craft this piece. It looks and feels solid and can stand up to extreme conditions and decades of intense use. Its compact construction makes it easy to store without eating up much space and easy to carry around.

Simple Use and Self-Docking

Worry not if you have severe allergies or Asthma since an included Aerovac filter gets hold of all dust, allergens and other contaminants from the air. The company offers an extra filter, so you won’t have to spend extra cash replacing the filter anytime soon. The dirt collects in a compartment inside the vacuum. Once it is full, the app notifies you and you will need to slide it out and empty the dirt. Setting up and using this device is simple and straightforward and requires no special skills. You will get to use it straight out of the box. You can operate it manually without a smartphone by powering it on or off with a simple click of the CLEAN button. Pressing the DOCK button will send it back to the Home base charging station while the SPOT’ button activates concentrated cleaning in a specific area of your choosing.

Once the vacuum is done with cleaning, it automatically docks and recharges saving you the long wait of recharging it each time you need to clean your floor. The home base charging station supports voltages of 110-240V which is the standard for most power supplies. You are advised by the makers to clean the vacuum once every week and twice if you keep pets. You can replace the brushes every 6-12 months and replace the filters every 2 months. Just contact the support team from the app for more information. The company has confidence in its products and backs this vacuum with a 1-year warranty and lifetime customer support.

Stairs and Large Homes Present Issues

BatteriesOne downside of the iRobot Roomba 675 is that it cannot access vertical areas such as stairs or curtains. Ensure you have a trusty “old-school” vacuum or hand-held variety to clean these areas of your home. The robot will not be as effective if the floor contains spills and liquids. You will need to dry any spills with a dry rug before the vacuum can clean the surface.

Another drawback is the limited battery runtime. While 90 minutes of battery life is plenty for small to medium size homes, large homes can present a problem. This restricts the vacuum to limited cleaning space and forces it to withdraw for a recharge when cleaning large homes. Fortunately, the recharge and start cleaning again process of the Roomba ensures that as much of the house is cleaned without requiring effort from you. For those who have large homes, it is common to purchase different vacuums for different areas of the house to accelerate the cleaning process.

Final Verdict

We all express admiration for clean and beautiful floors, but the tedious routine cleaning is something nobody looks forward to. The Roomba 675 is here to do the cleaning job for you while you sit back and watch. The iRobot Roomba 675 vacuum isn’t cheap, but quality products in the market seldom are. Cheaper products can sometimes surprise you, like the eufy slim robot, but for the most part, you get what you pay for. Although the 675 robot is not the cheapest model available, the extra performance and reduced chance of headaches justifies the price. Overall, this is a recommended robot vacuum, but it could be better.
