The Roomba 560 Cleaner can be programmed to handle daily vacuuming automatically, up to seven times a week, for regular, thorough cleaning on a variety of surfaces. <br><br> How the iRobot Roomba 560 Works <br> The iRobot Roomba 560 can eliminate 98 percent of dust and debris without any assistance, using a cleaning system with three distinct stages. It includes a built-in counter-rotating beater and bristle brushes that work much like a dustpan and broom. Like a traditional canister vacuum, this robotic vacuum cleaner has a fine filter designed to trap and hold even the finest particles of pollen and dust. <br><br> Using advanced sensors and software such as iAdapt Technology, the Roomba 560 Cleaner goes over each part of the floor multiple times, ensuring that all areas are left dust-free. It detects areas that require additional attention using the Dirt Detect acoustic sensor, adding additional power and spending more time on them for a complete clean. The iRobot Roomba 560 features a spinning side brush and Wall-Following Technology for complete room coverage and extra efficiency along edges.<br><br> Where the Roomba 560 Cleaner Can Go <br> Engineers have designed the iRobot Roomba 560 to maneuver on any surface, from linoleum to tile, carpet to hardwood, and more. The machine adjusts its cleaning head suspension system automatically when sensors detect a change in flooring material. It covers the entire floor area, including underneath furniture, thanks to its compact shape. Several safety features are built right in to prevent it from meeting with any disaster. First, the Roomba 560 Cleaner has Cliff Detection, so it automatically senses and avoids stairs. Second, advanced Anti-Tangle Technology prevents carpet fringe, cords, and tassels from jamming the equipment, which adds to this robotic vacuum cleanerâ€™s ability to operate independently. <br> Finally, if there are rooms that the machine should not enter, the Auto Virtual Walls feature is used to create a barricade that the machine will not cross. This ensures that off-limits areas donâ€™t present a hazard. Along with preventing the Roomba 560 Cleaner from crossing into a prohibited area, the Lighthouse setting keeps Roomba confined to a single room until that room has been completely cleaned. <br><br> The iRobot Roomba 560 is Easy to Operate <br> The Roomba 560 Cleaner was designed for one-touch operation. With just a push of the clearly labeled â€œcleanâ€ button, the robot is ready to go. The convenient Spot Clean Mode makes for quick and painless attention to problem areas when there is an unexpected mess in a concentrated location. It is recommended that floors are cleared of clutter to ensure maximum cleaning coverage. <br> In addition, it is programmed to return to its Home Base for docking and recharging when its work is complete, or when it detects that its battery power is low. The iRobot Roomba 560 handles the task of removing pet fur, dust, dirt, and other debris automatically at the most convenient time of day or night. The advanced technology gives the robot smart sensors that allow for minimal human interaction.
