…and the very thought of it would cause my feet to drag, my mind to fog, and my productivity and positive energy to plummet.
So when I got the Roomba 650 vacuum, I wanted to review it and give my perspective on how it has changed my life as an entrepreneur….for the better!
This is the first video of a series called “Tools for Productivity” and even though the Roomba 650 Vacuum isn’t technically a pure mental or business tool, this device has afforded me the freedom from vacuuming my home, a chore that I despise.
In the spirit of putting my mental energy and efforts to growing my business, I need all the help I can get to live a purpose-filled life and not live in squalor.
You can set up your Roomba by first setting the “clock” feature and after, setting your schedule by simplying holding down the button and selecting the appropriate day and time.
Roomba 650 Cleaning
The Roomba cleans in a set pattern and usually will do about 1 hour of vacuuming per day, more or less depending on the AMOUNT of dirt it finds in certain rooms.
Roomba 650 Charging Review
The Roomba charges via a dock that is plugged to the wall outlet. Once the Roomba is done cleaning, it will automatically go back to the dock and connect for recharge.
Will Roomba 650 Fall Down the Stairs?
No! The Roomba 650 contains sensors that will detect areas where there aren’t any floors, so it will not trip itself down the stairs. I even tested this on my desk and it never once cascaded over the edge.
What is the Roomba 650 Virtual Wall?
This is one of the coolest (albeit still unused by me) feature. If you want Roomba to stay within a room and clean it thoroughly, you can set up a virtual wall with a device that comes included with the box. Just set up the device along the wall where you would like to create a virtual wall, turn it on, and the Roomba will not be able to penetrate.
Will Roomba 650 clean multiple rooms?
Yes! As long as there aren’t any clear obstructions like closed doors or virtual walls, the roomba will easily navigate room to room.
How do I Clean the Roomba 650?
Three to four times a week, I pop out the cartridge located at the back of the Roomba and empty out the contents in the trash. Then I simply pop the cartridge back into the room. That’s it!
How do I Spot Clean with Roomba 650?
If you want Roomba to clean a specific spot on your floor, just hit “spot” and it will vacuum in a circular motion.
How do I Dock the Roomba 650?
Simply hit the “dock” button on your Roomba while it is out and about and it will proceed to wheel itself over to the dock and dock itself.
What Other People Have to Say
“Overall I am incredibly happy with my Roomba. I’ve only had it for about two weeks so far, but will try and update down the road in regards to continued performance. If you have pets, and even more so, ones that shed, this is a life saver and a well worth investment. Highly recommended and Pyr Parent approved!” –W. Maczka
“Overall, I love the Roomba. It’s fun to watch, great to help out around the house to clean for us and really saves us time so we can have one less thing to do when it comes to cleaning up the house.” – N. Maine
“If you are wondering if you should get this one, or one of the bigger, newer models, this one fits the bill. Anything more than this for me would be for fun. So, if you are on the fence about one of these units. Get it. You won’t be sorry.” – L. George
