can this roomba go from wood floors onto a .5 inch thick area rug?
After owning a couple of Roombas, this was purchased for my mother, her second one. Roombas are wonderful housekeeping assistants but they required regular care in cleaning them each time, in order to keep them running efficiently. They have lasted me between two and three years each, using it every second or third day. I have not found anyone locally in my town that fixes or refurbishes them, but I have not investigated that further. All that being said, I can't imagine not having one. I have stained concrete floors and cork. There are a few area rugs here and there. Roombas work best on smooth floors or very smooth carpeting. Even a berber can be challenging but it will work on that type of carpet. If you have wood or smooth floors this is ideal. It goes under beds and chairs and places that I would only be cleaning occasionally. I just wish the price was a little more reasonable. Instead of going down in price, they seem to be increasing each time....

I have had a roomba in the past and it was wonderful, but this one does not handle hair very well. It stops every few minutes because the front wheel gets hair wrapped around it.Read More

I have a dog and a cat the shed a tremendous amount and I felt like I was vacuuming every day after work. my dog and cat don't mind it at allRead More
If you're looking for a vacuum to get every last particle of dust off your floors, Roomba is a good bet. She really sweeps clean the kitchen, and does a good job on wood floors too. Although she's supposed to maneuver around cords (or spit them out) I have to stow stereo wire on a table otherwise it trips her up and shuts her down. One downside: It's a tad tricky to open the filter housing, and it does need to be emptied every time. (we have pets).Read More
I use this every other day for keeping up with my 3 cats fur that they leave everywhere. Only problem I have is it can't climb and do sofas too!Read More
I love them when they work! But I have been getting some bad Roombas. And they tend to last only a year or so, a few years if you are lucky. They are expensive and mostly worth it - as long as they work and don't go bad on you - or arrive broken. They're perfect, if only they didn't go bad so easily!Read More
I LOVE MY ROOMBA!!!!!! No more cleaning up dog hair or crumbs or pulling furniture out to clean under it. No more dust bunnies in the corners or dusty/hairy baseboards. Life just got a hell of a lot easier. I turn it on when i leave for work in the morning and then walk around barefoot as soon as i come home. The container is easy to empty and so far has not had trouble with capacity. It goes over rugs and pays attention to edges, corners, under furniture, etc. The only thing i have to say about it that could be seen as even slightly negative is that it is sort of loud. However, if you just turn it on as you leave for work that doesn't matter. Also, it docks itself on the charger once it's done!Read More
It really picks up the sand and the pet hair, which is why we got it. It will get stuck in sliding door tracks, and it doesn't get corners which is why 4 of 5 stars. We have 2 big black labs and acreage and this Rumba does help to keep the dirt and hair level manageable.Read More

Best Kid-friendly Fabric for Sofas
Finding the right sofa and loveseats that match your room, have the right look and meet your budget can be like searching for a needle in a haystack. If kid-friendly fabrics are on your must-have list, start by looking below. This article will help you find the best kid-friendly fabrics for sofas, which should repel stains and hold up to added abuse from children jumping, scooting and forgetting to remove their shoes before hopping on the sofa. Microfiber: Microfiber is stain-resistant and comes in different textures. Some microfiber weaves are smooth, like suede, and others are denser, similar to corduroy. You may clean most microfiber with water, but check the manufacturer's tag because a few types of microfiber may require cleaning with a compatible solvent. Wool: For sofas, wool and wool blends are great because of their durability. They're less prone to pilling, snagging and wrinkling than other fabrics. Plus, wool is easy to spot-clean. Vacuum this natural fabric with a hand-held vacuum attachment to remove dust. Leather: Leather is a versatile sofa fabric; it can be elegant or totally casual. Its slick surface makes cleanups relatively easy. Beware if you have pets, as little claws can leave scratch marks. Scuff-repair solutions are available, and they can keep your kids' sofa looking good for years. In addition, a quick treatment with leather conditioner once or twice a year will keep the sofa soft and supple. Vinyl: Vinyl is just as versatile as leather and often has the same smart look, but at a much more affordable price. It's easy to clean, too: just spray it with water and wipe spills away. Vinyl isn't as snuggly as microfiber, but in a playroom, it will hold up to lots of abuse. Denim: Just because a sofa is upholstered in denim doesn't mean it'll look like your worn-out jeans. Just like a comfy pair of jeans, denim is sturdy and goes with everything. In addition, denim sofas are available in a rainbow of colors to match your kids' bedrooms or playroom.
