Unless you have been living under a rock, you’re probably aware of what Roombas are, or at least have some idea of what they are about. In case you don’t, they can be best described as self-automated cleaning devices, or in simpler terms, mini robotic vacuum cleaners. Ever since they were first introduced in the market, they have taken the entire cleaning business by storm. In fact, they have become a common addition in a lot of home, ranging from large homes with big families to small apartments. So, in case you do not have a Roomba and are considering getting one, you can learn about them by reading below.

Advantages:
• Roombas are really convenient. They are equipped with sensors to be able to navigate and move around the house, and detect dirt so they are able to effectively take care of it.

• They are able to reach in small spaces easily.

• You can set a fixed cleaning schedule, so your Roomba will only activate itself at certain times that you have already set. So, you can set the time for when you leave home so that you can come back to a clean home.

• They are relatively inexpensive and are affordable as well.

• You can set their cleaning pattern linearly as well as randomly.

Disadvantages:
• They do require some maintenance like cleaning the filter when the light turns on, cleaning it after 3-4 uses, clearing dust in the bag etc.

• While they are able to navigate around spaces, they do sometimes get stuck so they end up staying stuck there till either their battery dies or you physically remove it.

• They cannot work on elevated flooring or stairs. They only work on flat services.
