Can Roomba Clean Carpet floors?

If you own a Roomba vacuum, you may be asking yourself, “How can a Roomba clean carpet?” What should have come to mind is a vacuum that uses chemicals to clean your carpet and possibly deodorize the room. Did you know that the Roomba is the first vacuum cleaner to use an ionic airflow system? When you start to hear that whirring, it means the Roomba is working!

Roomba vacuums are powered by a lithium-ion battery. The Roomba turns on the ionic airflow system and starts moving dust and debris around the carpet. It then vacuums the dirt out of the carpet and onto the floor in little circular movements.

Roomba’s Powerful Vacuum Power can take out and breaks up allergens and bacteria, leaving your carpet looking and smelling great. Roomba has several filtering systems including a HEPA filtration system and an electrostatic filter, to keep your carpets free of dust and allergens.

If you have pets, then you know how difficult it can be to get them outside. While there are some breeds of dog which are naturally clean animals, most can sense when you are dirty and need to go. Roomba’s design makes it easy to let your dog run about while cleaning up.

The suction from the Roomba vacuum is so strong that they will not be stopped by furniture, so you can put your feet up and still clean up! Roomba is an excellent choice for an apartment or condo living because not only does it clean your carpets extremely well, but it has the ability to use as little water as possible.

The Roomba performs best in high-traffic areas. It will pick up most of the dirt and grime from the floor before it ever gets to your carpet. On the other hand, if you have your Roomba for only a short amount of time in an area, it can pick up a fair amount of dust and dirt.

To avoid too much dust and grime, make sure that you only use the Roomba in areas that have heavy traffic. If you live in an older home with carpeted floors, then you may want to consider a self-cleaning cycle that Roomba can perform.

Well, since the Roomba is powered by you pushing it around on the floor, it goes through a great deal of exertion. You’ll need to use a bit more force when vacuuming if you want to keep your carpet completely clean. It is important to note that if you don’t want to use too much force when vacuuming, you can slow down the Roomba’s movement. This will help you minimize the amount of dirt and grit that the Roomba has to push around.

Can Roomba clean hardwood floors?

Yes, it can! Roomba vacuums are not only designed to vacuum your carpets and rugs. You can even use Roomba vacuums on bare floors to pick up debris and dust. Just be sure to let the Roomba run for a few minutes after cleaning so that the air can circulate the floor.

Can a Roomba clean hard-to-reach areas like a baseboard or cupboard?

Yes, you can. Just don’t expect Roomba to do a really deep clean because the suction power is limited. Your best bet is to use a professional carpet cleaning service.
