Roomba is back at it again with its line of iRobot automatic vacuum cleaners. This time Roomba offers a cost-efficient yet powerful model with the Roomba 880. Unlike previous models, this maintenance minimal model uses rubberized extractors to clean as opposed to regular bristle brushes. This Roomba vacuum is especially designed for houses with multiple wood floors and pet hair. It truly earns this robot cleaner the title of the “best Roomba for the money.”


Roomba 880 for Pet Hair and Wood Floors

Dirt Sensor Technology

The Roomba 880 has advanced sound and vision scope sensors that actually look for dirt and dust in the same way that a sonar behaves. The sensors include a “Persistent Pass” feature that will spot clean an area until the maximum level of debris is picked up. Additionally, it moves in tight, meticulous movements to adapt to tight corners and edges and low clearance points.

Battery Powered Block-off Columns

Similar to virtual wall technology consisting of a marking tape, the Roomba 880 comes with battery powered columns that act as barriers in order to block off multiple rooms in the house. Furthermore, the columns can be used to create a barrier around smaller obstacles, allowing the user to customize protection around delicate pieces of furniture or even walls.

High-Efficiency HEPA Filter

The Roomba 880 is the best Roomba for the money when combating pet hair and other allergens. The advanced HEPA filter with “AeroForce” seal and odor neutralizing properties offers 5x more protection than regular HEPA filters and is specifically built for households with allergy issues such as: pollen, dust mites, and pet hair and dander.
