It is also able to vacuum around edges. It doesn’t bump into an object, it turns 180 degrees and head in the opposite direction.
The iRobot Roomba 760 comes with feature called dirt sensing. Dirt sensing blasts sound waves while moving along so it can detect any buildup of dirt on the floor or carpet.
If it does detect any it will vacuum over that area several times before moving along.
iRobot Roomba 760 Robotic Vacuum Cleaner Floor Performance
Similar to other 700 series Roomba robots it does its best work on bare floor. It will pick up pet hair and dust around the room and under furniture.
Take note that this will remove mostly loose dirt. If dirt is stuck it won’t pick it up.
It will do good job on carpets. But on really thick carpet, don’t expect too much out of it.
Because it doesn’t have deep cleaning performance. That’s were good old full-sized vacuums will come in to play.
It won’t have trouble transitioning from floor to rugs as long as the rug isn’t too thick.
Cleaning low to medium pile rugs won’t be an issue either but it will struggle with really thick shaggy rugs.
Also remember to tuck in the tassels so that the robot won’t chew it up and get stuck.

Lot of pet owners are happy with the results as it successfully removes pet hair that our beloved pets leave.
Be noted that there will be a need to remove hair that gets wrapped around the two brushes as part of the maintenance cycle.
