Tips for buying a Roomba this Black Friday

When buying a Roomba, the two main considerations are run time and capacity. These factors will let you know how long the robot vacuum can last on one charge, and how much dirt it can pick up before being emptied. Longer run times and larger capacities will be best suited to larger homes, while smaller flats and apartments will suit vacuums on the lower end.

Mop modes may also be of use if you have several non-carpeted rooms. These robot vacuums will wipe the floor as they pick up dirt, giving your home an even deeper clean. 

Other smart features could be good to look out for, too, if you can afford them. Roombas that can self empty are incredibly handy if you keep forgetting to clean them out regularly, while some devices can create smart maps of your home to improve cleaning efficiency.
