How does Roomba 960 navigate an entire level of your home?
Roomba 960 seamlessly navigates an entire level of your home, recharging as needed until the job is done. At the start of a cleaning cycle, Roomba 960 uses iAdapt® 2.0 Navigation with Visual Localisation to map out a series of small areas, cleaning them efficiently, one at a time. Using this map, Roomba tracks where it has and has not been to ensure complete coverage.
Will Roomba 960 work without using the iRobot HOME App?
Yes, Roomba 960 can be used without the iRobot HOME App, but the App allows you to use your iOS or Android smart device to help you have the best possible experience with Roomba 960. With the iRobot HOME App, you can gain access to exclusive features including cleaning while away from home, managing your robot's cleaning schedule, customising your cleaning preferences and more.
Will Roomba work on dark or black surfaces?
Unfortunately, Roomba may not run on certain dark or black coloured surfaces. The cliff sensors that recognise an edge or a stair may view this colour as an edge and will not clean over it. When encountering this situation, Roomba may say “Move Roomba to a new location,” or it may back away from this area. There is no adjustment that can be made to correct this behavior.
Do not block or disable the cliff sensors, as this may create an unsafe operating condition.
What kind of floors can Braava clean?
Braava is designed exclusively for hard-surface floors. It works on virtually any hard flooring including wood, tile, vinyl and laminate.
Is Braava a vacuum?
No, Braava is not a vacuum or a brush sweeper that can actually distribute dust on hard-surface floors. Instead, Braava uses cleaning cloths to both sweep and mop hard surface floors to keep them free of grit and grime. You can use popular disposable cleaning cloths such as Swiffer® brand, or the reusable microfiber cloths designed specifically for Braava.
What cleaning solutions do you recommend with Braava 380t?
We recommend using just tap water. We recommend staying away from harsh cleaners as they can be hard on Braava's internal parts and soapy solutions that may cause the wheels to slip while cleaning or clog the wick on the Reservoir Pad.
How often should I use Braava?
It depends on how dirty your floors are, but the more frequently you use it, the happier you will be with your floors. Since dust is constantly accumulating, Braava always has a job to do.
How do the microfiber cloths work?
Dry microfiber cloths effectively gather up dirt, dust and hair. And the specially textured cloths can be used for mopping by simply wetting with water and wringing them out. Each can be washed and reused hundreds of times.
