* Debris type, Hair, dogs, cats, or just plain dust. Any "wet" stuff? All non-vacuum debris needs to be picked up otherwise it may get "smeared" all over with "tracks".
* How often does the floor need vacuuming? Or does it need a good mop up to get clean?
* Obstructions? Lots of chairs, furniture, delicate stands?
* The machine capacity (how much debris will it hold?)
* Battery Tech (should be Lithium Ion)
* additional options; invisible "wall", charging dock (auto return to dock for charging)
* Program times.
* Smart phone app (optional, not really needed unless your rushing home for a surprise visit from mom.)
* robot overhead clearance. (can it go under YOUR stuff?)
* Basically if you perform "Light" cleaning especially on hard floors or really short hair carpet then the robot cleaners will work for you.
* In Arizona where the house was air conditioned but dust and sand from the desert always found a way in. The the robot vacuum would be perfect.
* Parts always are mentioned with most robots. Be sure to pick one that you can get replacements. as parts too.

SOURCE: How do robotic vacuum cleaners work?

I'm going to buy a robotic cleaner, but recently I've read an article about the difference between vacuum and mopping robots. It was mentioned that a floor mopping robot is better as it can clean all sorts of sticky grime, spills, and damp debris from the floor, and a vacuum robot leaves much of the grime untouched. Frankly speaking, I've started thinking about buying one of 5 Best Floor Mopping Robots of 2017 .

My roomba no longer works on my area rug, it starts backing up continuously once it encounters the rug.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

iRobot Roomba Vacuuming Robots and the iRobot Dirt Dog Workshop Robot are equipped with four infrared Cliff Sensors that prevent robots from falling off stairs or ledges. The Cliff Sensors are located along the inside of the bumper. If the Sensors become obstructed by dust or debris, the infrared signal is weakened. Regularly inspect and clean the Sensors. Use compressed air for best cleaning results.

I have 2 I robot roomba cleaners they charge but will not turn on. The robot company does not repair them don't know what to do

Hi. It depends on where you are in the world. Companies in the US repair them and so do I in the UK.

But if you are using a new battery and same issue, then the power button is at fault.
