Cleaning the cleaner! How to clean the iRobot Roomba.

Running the iRobot Roomba on a weekly basis means that you will have to clean the Vacuum itself. We will show you how to clean the iRobot Roomba so that your RoboVac stays in tip top shape. Once the RoboVac has cleaned your floors, the steps below will tell you how to keep it operating.

Empty the iRobot Roomba bin

Step 1: Empty the bin. The bin is the main tray on the iRobot Roomba that gets full from doing the household vacuuming. It is located on the back of the iRobot Roomba. To empty the bin simply press the button on the back of the RoboVac and it should slide out. So once you pulled the bin out, there is a door on the back that which you can open and simply pour out the dust. You will need to pour the dust out after every use because it will fill up.

So remove your blue filter you can take it about and clean it. Because it catches the fine dust.

Step 2: If you turn the iRobot Roomba over you will see some brushes and two yellow tabs which you can lift and remove those brushes. The roller brushes are used to sweep dust into the bin of the iRobot Roomba and you will need to remove duct and hair that gets caught around these rollers.

Step 3: So the next step here is to clean the castor wheel and it allows the iRobot Roomba to steer. Use your fingers to pull the whole wheel out. Sometimes it gets hair around it. This will need cleaning every two weeks.

Step 4: This is the last step. You will need to clean the side wheel, but first remove it with a screwdriver. Turn the screwdriver to remove the wheel and simply clean as you need it.

When you start looking at the iRobot Roomba vacuums there is actually six different models and they all have different features like scheduling, WIFI connection and tangle free brushes.

iRobot Roomba Virtual Wall.

The iRobot Roomba comes with a Virtual wall which is just an invisible sensor that stops the vacuum from going into a certain areas. You can use this device to block off parts of your floor like stairs or cables.

Stop it going where you don’t want it to go!

The docking station also has a sensor on it so you can use the docking station to stop the RoboVac going to an area which you don’t want to. So in my case I stopped it from going near my dog door.

But if you want the RoboVac to do a really good job. Just pick up anything that might get in its way. Think about how you can make your own Vacuuming job allot easier and faster by pickup clothes, kids toys. Its the same deal with the RoboVac. Because the easier you make the job for the RoboVac, the better job it will do.

If it doesn’t have to stop and go around objects then it will clean allot more space faster and do a much better job. This model does a really well along edges as well. It has a little brush that sweeps any dirt from the edges of walls and cabinets and then that dust is sucked up by the main rollers of the RoboVac.
