Have you ever wondered how to program Roomba to clean one room? It’s okay if you haven’t. Many people don’t know about this cool feature, and it is so easy to use! Programming your Roomba is easy – even if you are new to it. You just need to know where the virtual wall that comes with your Roomba goes.
Once you figure out where the wall goes, setting up the cleaning program is a breeze! This blog post will explain how to program Roomba to clean one room in three simple steps.
Step 1: Find the sweet spot
The “sweet spot” is the spot where you can place the virtual wall that will help your Roomba clean just one room. If you place the wall in the wrong spot, the Roomba will clean surrounding areas that you don’t want it to clean. The sweet spot is a few inches away from the corners of the walls in the room that you want to clean. The sweet spot will vary depending on the Roomba model that you have. Here are the sweet spots for three common Roomba models:
- iRobot Vacuum Cleaner: about 22” off the wall
- iRobot Roomba 671: about 12” off the wall
- iRobot Roomba 980: about 6” off the wall
Step 2: Decide on the room you want to clean
Once you have found the sweet spot for your Roomba, it’s time to decide which room you want to clean. You will need to place the virtual wall outside the door of the room you want to clean. The virtual wall comes with sticky strips that you can use to attach it to your wall. It is best to start with a small room. It is easier to clean a small room than a large room. It is also easier to troubleshoot any issues you might have with a smaller space. It is a good idea to clean a room that doesn’t have many obstacles, such as furniture.
Step 3: Press “clean”
After you have decided on the room you want to clean and placed the virtual wall outside the door, it’s time to press “clean.” When you press “clean,” the Roomba will start cleaning the room where you placed the virtual wall. Your Roomba will make one pass inside the room and then return to the docking station to recharge. Your Roomba will remember the room settings and will continue to clean that room until you change the settings.
That’s how to program Roomba to clean one room. Did you know that you can program Roomba to clean one room? Did you know that the sweet spot is different for every model of Roomba? We hope that now you know everything you need to know about this cool feature.
