I do not have to move any furniture for this to clean for me. It may depend upon your furniture, but It cleans around all my furniture (bedrooms, den, entry, kitchen, bathrooms, etc.). The Braava happens to fit under the cross bars of my kitchen chairs and cleans beautifully around each leg too. I do have to lift one bed skirt & tuck some electrical cords in a few rooms. It controls & removes the fur from one long haired spaniel quite well. We are all very happy with the performance.
