The most frequently asked question about Roomba is “Can Roomba work on high pile carpet?” The answer is yes!

Roomba has a spinning side brush that detangles and loosens hair, dirt, and other debris from the carpet before it’s sucked away. This spinning side brush also helps to pull in more dirt and dust from deeper within the carpet. And finally, iRobot can sense height changes in the home (like stairs) and will automatically adjust its height to suit your flooring.

The Roomba Vacuum

The iRobot Roomba is a very unique vacuum, in that it has an extremely powerful cleaning kit that is really suitable for your messes on high pile carpets. While the Roomba gets really good suction power with its filter and HEPA filter, it also has a really strong water jets for drying up your messes, plus an extra strong brush to pull the debris away from your walls and other edges that get neglected. That’s why the Roomba works so well on your thick carpet, since the motor is strong enough to break up the carpets, while also strong enough to not rip your expensive rugs. You can also clean using your handheld, using the appropriate vacuum hose. The regular Roomba model is not cheap, but is perfect for the moderate level of dirt that many households encounter.

How to Clean Your Rug With a Roomba?

If you don’t have carpet but do have a thick rug or one that you can’t move on your own, the Roomba can help you clean it. Because the robot is meant to move gently, you may use its gentle suction to clean your rug with relative comfort. Even thicker rugs and rugs with removable textiles can be cleaned with a vacuum.

The iRobot Roomba 614 robot vacuum is a basic, low-cost option. It’s well-made and has a long battery life, but the automation possibilities are limited, and it doesn’t come with a remote control or a companion app. It works best on bare surfaces, such as hardwood, carpet. It also works well on high pile carpets. It, on the other hand, has a hard time sucking up pet hair, which tends to become trapped on the brushrolls.
The battery life on the iRobot 614 is excellent. It has a continuous cleaning time of more than two hours. This vacuum is capable of self-maneuvering. It moves in a random pattern and does a good job of covering a large area. It can go onto carpets thanks to its auto-adjusting head, however it can get trapped on rug tassels.

but the most important thing about the Roomba is that it’s a great vacuum. It’s sturdy, it’s easy to
empty, and it gets the job done.
