Roomba’s are a great tool for keeping your house clean while you’re busy. In terms of your split-level, your Roomba will not fall down the stairs. Roombas are equipped with cliff sensors that detect any sharp drop off they encounter, such as stairs or ledges. When a Roomba senses a drop off, they will back away and continue cleaning elsewhere.
Keeping your house clean can be a drag—luckily, your home insurance doesn’t have to be!
