The reason we got the roomba was that we have two welsh corgi’s that are simply fur explosions. They walk through a room shedding. They come in from outside and shake like crazy with fur going everywhere. You can vacume and a few hours later its like you never did. I was very skeptical about the roomba but was ready to try anything to help. We have wood floors and the roomba doesnt miss anything. It is intresting to see what it picks up when you empty the bin, you just cant imagine all that stuff on your floor. My daughter looked at it cleaning and said “that is the most lazy thing I have ever seen”. I have gotten several comments like that about my clean house and my robot; all from those who never clean and arent quite sure where or what a vacume cleaner is. We love this thing and you will too. It comes with a remote control so you can chase your animals through the house as they shed. They arent thrilled about the roomba :), but they understand.
