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.
