A: The Roomba e5 is quieter than a standard vacuum, and most consumers don’t report being disturbed by the robot running. You can always utilize the scheduling feature in the Home App to run your Roomba e5 while you’re out of your home.
A: it is very loud on hard surface floors, quieter on carpet.
A: I've been running a similar model (with rubber rollers like this one has) for 4 years on my hardwood floors without any damage. I think the only way you might be able to scratch your floors would be if something became caught on the bottom of the robot and the robot continued to run. I can't really see this happening, but I'm sure it's possible. You could avoid this potentiality by using the robot when you're home and could hear if something is caught under the machine. I don't -- and wouldn't -- use the robot on fine rugs or on rugs with fringe.
