Assess Your Needs…Some Questions To Ask Yourself
Fundamentally, it’s the surface area to be covered that will steer a customer to a specific brand and model. Here are a few questions you might ask yourself:
How many rooms are to be covered by the robot vacuum cleaner?
To answer this question your best bet is to refer to our robot vacuum cleaner comparison chart made available through our support center (see website address below). You may disinfection robot also direct your attention to product specifications provided by the manufacturer.
Are these surfaces or rooms separated by stairways?
Unfortunately, Roomba and Infinuvo CleanMate vacuum cleaners are not designed to manage their way through stairways. If you wish to have a robot vacuum clean all your surfaces, you will have to plan for a robot per floor. You can always carry it from level to level if you wish.
Do you expect your robot vacuum cleaner to manage itself following a preset schedule? Perhaps you don’t mind it running when started manually?
IRobot models Roomba 560, 570 and 580 are designed with onboard scheduling capability. Some of the Discovery Series models Roomba 415, and Roomba Red, , are scheduling capable through a remote control. The remote is sold separately. Infinuvo CleanMate vacuums do not have scheduling capabilities.
Roomba vacuum cleaner shoppers, will you be needing the virtual wall and/or lighthouse technology?
You may want to refer to our comparison chart for this issue. The rule of thumb suggests planning for a virtual wall at every doorway or access to off limits areas of the property. Otherwise, virtual walls can easily be moved around if you wish to avoid extra expenses.
Lighthouses will contribute to your robot’s efficiency by improving room to room cleaning. These units should preferably be accounted for when choosing your robot vacuum. Especially if you plan to have your robot vacuum run on a schedule while away. Once again refer to our robot vacuum cleaner comparison chart to determine your needs. Your property’s or office’s architecture will have to be taken into account when looking up this option. In doubt, refer to our Support Center or Forum, where a specialist will be happy to provide you with good support.
