  1. I read in comments on a site that you can use the pethair brush from the Irobot scooba. It said that it didn’t clog up with hair as bad and cleaned deeper into the carpet. Is this brush available through your site?

    Chuck Eglinton: I’m sorry, we don’t sell any Roomba products. You might want to try searching on Google for “Roomba brushes” or “Scooba brushes.”
