What is a roomba and how does it work?
A roomba is a robotic vacuum cleaner that navigates around your home using sensors to map out the layout of the room. It then cleans the floor by moving back and forth in straight lines. Sometimes the roomba gets stuck and continues cleaning on one area. This can be frustrating if it happens in a high traffic area such as the kitchen, or in front of the door where you leave for work everyday.
Why does my roomba keep cleaning the same area?
There are a few reasons why your roomba might keep cleaning the same area. One reason is that it could be getting stuck on something. The roomba has sensors to help it avoid obstacles, but sometimes it can’t move around an object and ends up stuck. Another reason could be that the roomba isn’t detecting enough dirt in that area. The sensors are designed to detect dirtier areas of the room so it will spend more time on those spots. A dirty filter might also be cause of your roomba cleaning the same area over and over again.
How do I fix my roomba that keeps cleaning the same area?
You can try switching your roomba’s pattern from spiral to parallel. This will change the way your roomba cleans and might help it avoid the stuck area. If that doesn’t work, try moving any objects or furniture that may be blocking its path or access to a certain area of the house. A dirty filter might also cause this problem, so make sure you check if your filters need cleaning or replacing. Replacing a dirty filter can often help your roomba avoid a stuck area and get back to normal.

What are some other things that I should do when my roomba keeps cleaning the same area?
If your roomba is stuck on an object and won’t move, you can try to push it out of the way. If your roomba is stuck in a certain area and not moving, try to clean up the area so there is less dirt for it to detect. You can also try to move the furniture or objects in that area so the roomba has more space to move around. If your roomba is still cleaning the same area, it might be a good idea to check your filters and make sure they are clean and not clogged. A dirty filter can often cause your roomba to get stuck on an area.

Tips for preventing this from happening :
– When possible, schedule your roomba to clean while you are at work or away for the day.
– Try moving any large objects in its path so your roomba can easily get past them.
– Let your roomba finish cleaning the same area before doing anything (removing an obstacle, emptying bin). This will allow it to continue moving on its own instead of getting stuck.
– Keep your roomba’s filters clean and replace them when needed. A dirty filter can often cause your roomba to get stuck on an area.
