With a regular upright vacuum, you still have to move small objects and string out of the way so it doesn't get caught in the revolving brush or in the hose. A robotic vacuum is no different. Despite the handiness of robotic vacuums, you will still have to do a little bit of your own cleaning. Small toys, string, newspapers, telephone and electric cords and drawstrings from mini-blinds will have to be placed up and out of reach. The unit will also encounter problems when it comes to frayed carpeting. Place a wastebasket or similar item over such an area to avoid any problems.
