Q. How should I use this robot when I have carpets?
A: The Roomba Combo® j5/j5+ robot instantly switches from vacuum to vacuum and mop mode when you install the Roomba Combo® bin. To keep Roomba Combo® j5/j5+ robot from mopping carpets and rugs, set up No Mop Zones in the iRobot Home App —or use your voice assistant** or iRobot Home App to only clean rooms without rugs or carpets. Note: When the Roomba Combo® Bin is being used, the Roomba j5/+ will always vacuum and mop simultaneously. If you wish to just vacuum for all floor types remove the Roomba Combo Bin™ and install the dry bin for vacuuming.
Q. Are there cleaning modes?
A: Yes, you can customize your clean in two different modes by swapping the bins: vacuum only using the dry bin or vacuum and mop your hard floors by activating and inserting the Roomba Combo® cleaning bin.
Q. What kind of mopping solution should I fill the Roomba Combo® Bin with for wet mopping?
A: You can use water or a compatible cleaning solution for wet mopping. See the list of compatible cleaning solutions that are iRobot tested and approved for use here.
Q. Is the mop pad washable? How often do I need to change it?
A: Yes, the mop pad is washable. It should be cleaned after each job in cold, warm, or hot water by hand or in the washing machine. The pad should be replaced after 30 machine washes for best performance.
Q. What is Imprint® Smart Mapping?
A: Imprint® Smart Mapping technology describes the robot’s ability to learn, map and adapt to your home. It learns your floorplan as it cleans and remembers this map for future cleaning jobs. Once the robot has learned your space you can tell it which rooms to clean and your robot will know which cleaning method to use based on the bin installed.
Q. Will it detect and avoid pet waste?
A: Yes, the Roomba Combo® j5/j5+ robot vacuum uses PrecisionVision Navigation to recognize objects and avoid obstacles like charging cables and pet waste. Object Detection must be enabled in the iRobot Home App in order to use.
Q. Does it work with voice assistants*?
A: Yes, cleaning crumbs is now as easy as “Roomba, clean under the kitchen table.” A simple request to your voice assistant* or via the iRobot Home App enables the Roomba Combo® j5/j5+ robot vacuum and mop to clean messes for you, right when they happen—immediately clean that spot and consider it done.
Q. What is the benefit of having the Clean Base® Automatic Dirt Disposal?
A: The Clean Base® Automatic Dirt Disposal eliminates the dusty and dirty mess often associated with emptying vacuum bins. This system’s Dirt Disposal bags hold 60 days of dirt and debris. Please note: Automatic Dirt Disposal not available when Mopping Bin is installed.
