What Makes This Any Different To A Cheaper Vacuum?
Well, this vacuum uses patented iAdapt 2.0 technology with vSLAM navigation. All this basically means is that your vacuum can measure the dimensions of your entire home. And then generate its own detailed maps for future reference. This cutting edge technology is important if you want a vacuum that gives you complete full coverage of all your surfaces in your home.
Other robot cleaners may come with a lower price tag. But nearly all of them won’t have the capabilities of providing such a thorough cleaning performance.
Another reason why other vacuum systems just don’t do their job the way they should is that they don’t pick up everything.
This is understandable with all vacuums. And can be easily fixed with a manual vacuum cleaner by doing an extra pass over the hard to clean area.
But is it as easy for a robot cleaner to do an extra pass?
The Roomba 960, when programmed onto its automatic setting, will make an informed judgment as to whether it needs to make another pass on any of your floor areas.
As well, on the automatic setting, the iRobot will try to conserve battery by not doing so many passes in larger spaces. Oppositely, if it is only dealing with a small space, it may make the decision to run over the floor area an extra time or so.
A super deep clean…
Additionally, you can program the vacuum yourself using the HOME App to do a thorough deep clean of your home or workspace. It can be programmed to do multiple passes over the same areas to really get a super deep clean. This type of control of your vacuum is ideal if you own pets that malt hair everywhere.
Speaking of pets…
You can enjoy the knowledge that the Roomba 960 has high-efficiency built-in filter traps that suck up 99% of dog and cat allergens.
This is great news for anyone that owns pets but needs a proper clean from time to time when you’re expecting guests.
A novel idea…
Many of you might leave for work, leaving a cat or dog at home during the day. As well, many people like to have a “pet camera” in place to keep an eye on the wellbeing of their little friend.
Well, imagine your dog or cat spills some pet food all over the floor. After seeing this mishap, you just simply need to instruct you iRobot Roomba 960 to go over to the affected area and suck up the mess.
Do The Floor Edges Get Cleaned Properly?
One other major question people ask is whether a robot cleaner can clean the edges of your floors effectively.
The iRobot Roomba 960 comes with their Edge Clean technology. The way it works is the vacuum will go about doing its normal cleaning process, then it runs its Edge Clean program. It will run itself along all the walls to make sure all your edges are clean. This process can be turned off in the cleaning process if you want to save on batteries or think that it’s not needed.
What About The Charging Process?
Incredibly, if you only require the vacuum to deal with one level surface like an apartment or office, for example, then you won’t need to do anything. The Roomba 960 will automatically dock itself to the docking station, where it will automatically recharge itself when needed. It will then just carry on cleaning until its job is done.
Of course, if you have multiple levels in your home or workspace, then you will have to carry it yourself when and where required.
