  • Traditional vacuum cleaner has evolved into Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum, introducing iRobot Roomba 4230 Remote Scheduler. Yup, it’s a robot but in a form of compact vacuum cleaner. It is also doesn’t have any bag to trap the dirt. With Roomba unique Scheduler, you can easily program Roomba to clean when you want.

    How Roomba Cleaning System Works?

    Roomba features a patented 3-stage cleaning system that is proven effective. First, the small spinning side brushes grabs dirt and debris in corners and along walls, sending it into the main cleaning path. Second, two counter-rotating brushes pick up large particles, pet hair, and other debris. Third, an extremely efficient vacuum picks up the remaining fine particles. All of the dirt and debris is deposited into a large capacity, easy-to-empty bin.
    Roomba's cleaning head automatically adjusts to any floor surface including wood, tile, linoleum and low-to-medium pile carpet. Roomba can even sense dirtier areas of your floor and will clean more intensely there.

    Roomba automatically calculates the appropriate cleaning time in any situation. Roomba will cover every part of the room an average of 4 times per cleaning cycle, and because Roomba cleans under furniture and other obstacles--Roomba actually cleans more of the floor than standard uprights. Roomba will even return back to its self-charging Home Base at the end of a cleaning cycle or when its battery is running low.
    To start a cleaning cycle, simply press the clean button and Roomba immediately begins calculating the size of the room, the number of obstacles in the room, and the cleanliness of the room. Roomba automatically monitors its environment and adjusts its behavior over 67 times per second.

    When Roomba start cleaning, it will calculated the the room condition like wall, cliff, size, obstacles and many more situation for optimum cleaning.
