Having problems with your iRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum ?

Can you use irobot Scooba on laminate floors?

\015 I have a Bruce Hardwood Laminate Floor and want to use the irobot Scooba to clean the floor. Is it safe?\015

Answers :

No. If water finds its way between the planks it will be absorbed into the core of the laminate and swelling will occur. In some cases if caught early enough and the planks are taken apart and allowed to dry they will go back to there normal size, this is rare. Usually if you read the manufacturers instructions for your cleaning machine it will say only use on a sealed hardwood floor, that means a floor where the raw wood was installed and then the finish applied. there is a lot less risk of damage from water with this type of flooring.
They are suppose to be hardwood floor safe but maybe you should call the manurfacturer and make sure

My irobot scooba does not spray cleaning solution out after about the first 30 seconds it is running. I have tried all the suggestions in this post with the suction bulb to charge with air, and then with water to clean it out. water does come out of both valves when forced with the bulb or immediately after using the bulb to charge it. then after it runs for about 30 seconds the floor is dry.
