ROOMBA! Do you have one?
If you have one, please answer these questions. Thank you!

What kind(s) of floors do you use it on? i.e. carpet, tile, hardwood, etc.

What's its capacity for holding stuff? How much can it suck up before you have to empty it?

Is it quiet?

Tell me anything else you'd care to.

Thanks!

3. My cleaning lady just quit!
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 10:13 AM by Joan_Alpern
She had to give up all of her cleaning jobs.

Buying a Roomba sounds like a good idea to me. I've got lots of bird seed and dog hair everywhere!

... it's either that or offering free room and board to a DUer who is willing to earn their keep by cleaning ...

9. All -- I found a good link
Click on "read reviews" and follow the "continue to page..." links. Good info, even if it is from a seller.

11. Looks like I'm spending money without walking out of the door again
I wonder if the Roomba will freak out my birds or your cats.

5. I always wondered how it did with cats
Can't quite decide if my cats would run from it or stalk it.
