Multiple Rooms – Can A Robot Vacuum Handle It?

Most of the Robot Vacuums you get today have no trouble with cleaning Multiple Rooms. But there are some that can handle it better than others, let’s talk about it.

Multiple Rooms (The Best Options)

The iRobot Roomba 981* and the Neato Robotics D7* are one of the best robot vacuums if you’re concerned about multiple room cleanings.

What you want to be on the lookout for multiple room cleaning robots is if it will go home to charge and then pick back up where it left off. This is a huge deal especially if you have a large home.

It’s amazing how smart these robot vacuums are when it comes to cleaning and are among the best if you ask me. But there are other options…

Other Options (Cheaper)

I personally use a Roomba 690* for my everyday cleaning of my home. It’s not as smart as the Roomba 980, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a good machine.

In fact, my 690 has no issues going from my living room to the kitchen to the hallway into the bedroom. Even though it’s movements are more random it has an hour to clean and has no trouble finding multiple rooms.

The most prominent reason why I got this model was that it was more random in its movement. I feel that random movements allow it to clean the same spot multiple times in many different directions which helps to keep the floor cleaner.

The worse things we do when we use a regular vacuum is getting in a pattern of cleaning the same way in the same direction all the time – this helps to trap dirt over time because it goes into places you don’t clean.

Open Floor Plans

If your home is more of an open floor plan where there is more than one way to get into a room you might have some issues with the super-smart robot vacuums. It would be best to use a Lighthouse or the blockers to keep the robot vacuum from going through one of the two doors.

If the bot enters through one door and leaves through another door even if it’s in the same room again, it will consider it a new room. They’re smart but not smart enough yet to understand that a room can have many ways to get into it.

The Bigger Issue

While making sure to get a robot vacuum that can clean multiple rooms is important it’s not the biggest issue for you.

It’s the trouble that the robot vacuum can run into, some of the stuff you would have never thought it would get stuck on. When you first get your robot vacuum you need to clean up things like cords, window blind strings or even shoe strings from your shoes that can get caught in it.

It’s a lot to take in at first, but I have compiled a list of 23 tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years about robot vacuums here. This guide will tell you plenty of things to watch out for and tricks I’ve learned about cleaning specific areas of your home.
