Why Robot Vacuums Getting Stucked ?
Reason 1: The Thickness For Robot Vacuum
Different Brands & Models, The Robot Vacuum size is different. The smaller the robot is, the less likely it is to get stuck. so compared with regular robot vacuum, Ultra-thin robot vacuum are less likely to be jammed by furniture. Most of time they can travel freely under the furniture, like bed & sofa.
Below is a sheet for the thickness of robot vacuum on the market
|Type Of Robot Vacuum||High||Get Stuck|
|Slim Robot Vacuum||Around 5.7cm||Hard|
|Regular Vacuum Robot||Around 8cm||Easy|
|Laser Robot Vacuum||Around 9.5cm~10.5cm||Hard ( Smaller Navigation)|
Reason 2: Low Furniture Chassis
Normally like Desk, Sofa, Bed, Chair are the regular furnitures at your home. each of them has different high. you can check the table above. if some of your furniture chassis high is less than 8cm, your robot vacuum will be more likely to get stuck.
Reason 3: High Wool Carpet
The carpets in thier living room and bedroom are very often to see in many families. especial in Europe & Noth Americal.
For the carpet with low wool, robot vacuum can go across it easily, but if it is the carpet with high wool. it will become a big barrier. The height of robot vacuum from the ground is around 1.2cm. if the carpet wool higher than 1.5cm, The sweeper is topped up by carpet wool. together with carpet resistance. it will be very get stuck
Reason 4: Croweded Space
If the cleaning area is very crowded, It’s also very easy to cause robot vacuum stucked. for some area, the space even lower than robot itself. There is no more space for machine to do cleaning.
Reason 5: The House Is Very Mess
For some familes, if your house is very mess, the clothes, the bag or the kids toy are everywhere. it will be very easy to get robot vacuum stucked.
Reason 6: The Brush Stucked
Some robot vacuums are equipped with brush. Side brush & Main Brush. If you don’t clean the brush for long or regulary, the brush will be entangled in piled hair. especial for the long hair & pet hair. it’s easily to get brush stucked.
Reason 7: Some Robot Vacuum Technology Not Overcome
Robot Vacuum already has many years development and we already achieve many technology sucess. However there are some still in research.
Like carpet detection technology. Irobot & Ecovacs already did the research on it. but at present the technology is still not very mature. Suppose if we could have a mature carpet detection technology, our robot vacuum can avoid carpet completely and not be stucked. Suppose If our engineers can develop a robot sweeper with greater horsepower, greater suction power, and greater obstacle clearance ability, i think there will no carpet that can stop it.
