I'm sorry, Stewie!

{Stewie late December or early January}

I forgot to clean out Stewie's brushes the last time the stalwart roomba 530 went out to clean the lower floor of the house. This time, when he had docked I smelt a burning smell. I emptied his bin, pulled him up onto the table on his back and thoroughly cleaned his brushes and blew him out with canned air {for a robot it's like a spa treatment}. The smell went away, no signs of melt on the brush, but it was a reminder that these little guys need a lot of care and missing one maintenance session after a big clean can mean trouble. That is one drawback of the Roomba 500 series, but I think that ironically is one of the things that has got me so attached to them.
