I don't care if the robotic vacuum doesn't clean it, but I don't want it to get stuck every day. know there's the Dyson 360 Eye which can supposedly clean shag, but that's way too expensive. I may get the iRobot Braava since that seems pretty good at avoiding rugs, but I would prefer an actual vacuum, not just a cleaning cloth. Do I have any other options?
We have a Neato XV with the pet brush and the pet filter , it could handle a similar IKEA rug. I think its called HAMPEN. (I need to check it with my girlfriend to be 100%)
With the default brush and the basic filter , it got stuck since it has too good airflow and the drive-wheels couldn't drive it forward.
But with the other brush and filters it could handle it , but was really slow since it was so thick.
Sometimes it got stuck anyway due to low battery since this rug really takes its toll when vaccuming.
We don't have that rug any more so I cant do any further testing.[Edit] - I have checked now and yes , IKEA - Hampen can be handled with an Neato XV with pet-brush and filter.
