Can A Robot Vacuum Cleaner Go Over Thresholds?

Can A Robot Vacuum Cleaner Go Over Thresholds?

Yes! Most robot vacuum cleaners have no issue with going over smaller thresholds. The average threshold is 0.5 inches (1.27 cm) and the average robot vacuum can go over 0.7 inches (1.77 cm).

Take for example the Neato D4 and D7, they have springs in the two rear wheel which it can use to crawl over the thresholds.

It’ll even continue to clean when going over the thresholds and take any loose dirt with it.

A curated list of maximum threshold heights for robot vacuum cleaners.

All i Robot Roomba Models1.6 cm (0.62 inch)
All Neato Models1.9 cm (0.75 inch)
Eufy RobotVac 121.6 cm (0.63 inch)
Eufy RobotVac 11S1.5 cm (0.59 inch)
All Roborock Models2 cm (0.79 inch)
Samsung POWERbot1.3 cm (0.5 inch)
Ecovacs Deepbot Ozmo2 cm (0.78 inch)
Shark – ION1.9 cm (0.75 inch)

Curated list of maximum threshold heights for robot vacuum cleaners.

So as you can see in the table above, most robot vacuum cleaners really should have no trouble going over most thresholds and transitions to other rooms.

The models rumoured to be the best in transitioning rooms and the Xiaomi Mi Roborock models which have an excellent grip to different types of floor, both carpet, wood and stone.

The Shark – ION and Samsung POWERbot are getting some complaints about getting stuck on even small thresholds, so I’m not sure they live up to their own claimed numbers.
