Dirt Doesn't Stand a Chance

Roomba can vacuum all floor surfaces and even get under furniture.

Adapts to environment for thorough coverage

Cleaning head automatically adjusts to carpets, tile, and hardwood floors as it moves through your home.

At just 3.6 inches tall, Roomba is designed to fit under most furniture so dirt has nowhere to hide.

Targets dirt and debris with precision

Dirt Detect™ Series II (available on 700 Series and above) uses optical and acoustic sensors to detect high concentrations of dirt, dust and pet hair, and then performs focused cleaning where it's needed.

A spinning side brush sweeps dust and debris from wall edges and corners into the path of the 3-Stage Cleaning System.

HEPA‐style Filter3 (available on 800 Series and above) traps up to 99% of dust, dirt and allergens as small as one micron to help keep the air in your home clean.

Carefully moves throughout and between rooms

A full suite of sensors allows Roomba to work its way around and under furniture as well as in corners.

Cliff Detect sensors allow Roomba to avoid stairs and other dangerous drop-offs.

Incredibly Simple to Use

Just press clean and it gets to work vacuuming your floors, even when you're not there.

Cleans on your schedule

Roomba can be preset to vacuum up to seven times a week, meaning clean floors everyday.

Requires little maintenance

Tangle-Free AeroForce™ Debris Extractors (available on 800 Series and above) prevent tangles and jams of hair and other debris so Roomba can keep tackling daily dirt build-up.

It automatically lets you know when its bin is full and needs to be emptied—with Roomba 980, the iRobot HOME App even informs you.

Makes sure the job is done

Select models include the Virtual Wall® Lighthouse™, which keeps Roomba in one room until it's completely vacuumed then sends it off to tackle the next.

Always ready to clean because it automatically returns to its Home Base® Charging Station between jobs to recharge.

Vacuuming Power You Notice

The Roomba 3-Stage Cleaning System uses a combination of three advanced technologies to pick up pet hair, dust and larger debris.

The Power of AeroForce™ Cleaning

Reaches dirt everywhere

A spinning side brush pushes debris into the path of the 3-Stage Cleaning System to catch dirt and dust hiding along the walls.

Breaks down dirt before picking it up

Tangle-free AeroForce™ extractors use durable rubber tread to grab and break down dirt and debris from all floor types.

Delivers more air power where it's required

The AeroForce Gen 2 Motor provides up to 5x the air power2 of previous models while the Roomba 980's Gen 3 motor offers up to 10x the air power2 on carpets & rugs.
