Looking after your iRobot Roomba
Every little bit helps
For best results, use it often! After every use, empty the bin and clean the filter.
The brushes do a lot of the hard work, so just like a hair brush, every week or so
itâ€™s best to take them out and remove the hair and fluff that collect around these,
and under the brush bearings (see diagrams in Essential Maintenance section).
Extend the battery life by recharging it as soon as possible and storing your Roomba
plugged in. For long-term storage, remove and store the battery in a cool, dry place.
*Safety first* As your Roomba contains electrical parts, donâ€™t submerge or spray it
with water â€“ clean with a dry cloth only. Before using your product for the first time
please refer to the important safety instructions towards the end of this manual.
