Roomba And Stairs

Roomba and stairs

There are many things a Roomba can do, and many things it can’t do. Cleaning stairs is one of the things it can’t do. So Roombaand stairs definitely do NOT go well together.

There are some reports of Roomba’s not handling stairs well, like the Roomba crashing DOWN the stairs. I’ve only heard of this on older models. If you go to Amazon to read some reviews using this link, and peruse most of the reviews you’ll see that at least one reviewer complained about the Roomba and stairs problem. This person’s unit crashed down the stairs and had to be replaced. I scanned reviews for the newer models like the Roomba 770 and Roomba 980 to see if there were similar issues with the Roomba and stairs but couldn’t find any issues at all on these updated models. If you’re thinking about buying a robotic vacuum then you’re very unlikely to have that issue if you stick to a newer model.

Neato vs. Roomba: Roomba 980Talk about robotic vacs and the first name brand that will pop into your mind is the iRobot Roomba. In fact, you’re probably reading this website because you’re interested in buying a Roomba or you’re curious whether you should consider a Roomba alternative or not.

iRobot has more well known models of robotic vacuums than any other brand has. There are Roombasfor pet hair, different types of rooms, and budget models that are priced affordably but without a lot of extra features that make the more expensive models pricier. At the time of this writing iRobot has already released nearly 20 Roomba models. It’s going to be hard to top that.
