Hi Marry. You will want to roombarize your apartment by picking up small things like cords and stuff. But it can go around stacks of books, chairs, and stuff that is sitting on the flor. No problem there. Hth.

I have stuff not only lining the walls, but also out in .the middle, such as my piano which is sort of a room division between the .living room and dining area, and I have stuff stacked around in various .places; when you live in the same place for 20 years, it just sort of .accumulates. So, do you need a relatively uncluttered environment for the .roomba to work well, or can it navigate easily around stuff? . .Mary . . .
