Cleans an entire level of your home: With Smart Mapping and vSLAM® technology, the Roomba® 980 robot vacuum seamlessly navigates your home, keeping track of where it’s been and where it has yet to clean.

Cleans until the job is done: Roomba® 980 robot vacuum cleans continuously for up to 120 minutes*, then recharges and resumes cleaning until the job is done.

Dirt, meet your match: The Roomba® robot vacuum removes dirt from high traffic spots of your home using patented Dirt Detect™ Technology. Sensors recognize concentrated areas of dirt and prompt the robot to clean them more thoroughly.

Designed to clean under furniture: At just 9.2cm tall, the Roomba® robot vacuum is designed to clean under beds, sofas, toe kicks, and other hard-to-reach areas.

Won’t fall down stairs: Cliff Detect sensors prevent the robot from falling down stairs or tumbling over drop-offs.

* Tested in iRobot's Home Test Lab on hard floors. Run times may vary.



Connect to clean from anywhere: The iRobot HOME App lets you clean and schedule conveniently – anytime, anywhere. Clean Map™ reports show where your robot cleaned, along with details such as coverage and duration from completed jobs. Plus, receive Push Notifications when your robot completes a cleaning job – all on your smartphone. Now compatible on devices with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant.

Customised Cleaning and Status Monitoring: Use the iRobot HOME App to select custom cleaning preferences and see the status of cleaning jobs.

Cleans carpets and hard floors: The Auto-Adjust Cleaning Head adapts its height to keep the Multi-Surface Brushes in close contact with different floor surfaces, directly engaging with both hard floors and carpets

Always ready to clean: The robot automatically returns to the Home Base® charging station to recharge at the end of a cleaning cycle or when the battery is running low.

Cleans on a schedule: Roomba® can be preset to vacuum up to seven times per week, meaning your home can stay clean every day.


Maximises cleaning power: An advanced Gen 3 motor gives the Roomba® robot vacuum up to 10x the air power* in Performance Mode or when the robot detects it's cleaning carpet.

Win the battle against pet hair: Multi-Surface Brushes work together to pull in pet hair, dust, dirt, and large debris without getting tangled.

Sweeps corners and along walls: The Edge-Sweeping Brush is specially designed at a 27-degree angle to sweep debris away from edges and corners and into the path of the 3-Stage Cleaning System to be suctioned off your floors.

The High-Efficiency Filter is made from a special material that captures 99% of dust, mites, and allergens as small as 10 microns.

How does Roomba® 980 navigate an entire level of your home? 

Roomba® 980 seamlessly navigates an entire level of your home, recharging as needed until the job is done. At the start of a cleaning cycle, Roomba® 980 uses iAdapt® 2.0 Navigation with Visual Localisation to map out a series of small areas, cleaning them efficiently, one at a time. Using this map, Roomba® tracks where it has and has not been to ensure complete coverage.


Will Roomba® 980 work without using the iRobot HOME App?

Yes, Roomba® 980 can be used without the iRobot HOME App, but the App allows you to use your iOS or Android smart device to help you have the best possible experience with Roomba® 980. With the iRobot HOME App, you can gain access to exclusive features including cleaning while away from home, managing your robot's cleaning schedule, customising your cleaning preferences and more.


How does Carpet Boost work?

On carpet, Roomba® 980 automatically increases its vacuum power to provide a deeper clean. On hard surfaces, Roomba® 980 reduces its vacuum power to decrease battery consumption while still delivering excellent cleaning performance.


Will Roomba work on dark or black surfaces?

Unfortunately, Roomba may not run on certain dark or black coloured surfaces. The cliff sensors that recognise an edge or a stair may view this colour as an edge and will not clean over it. When encountering this situation, Roomba may say “Move Roomba to a new location,” or it may back away from this area. There is no adjustment that can be made to correct this behavior.

Do not block or disable the cliff sensors, as this may create an unsafe operating condition.

A wonderful addition to my life
I Just love my Roomba 980
This purchase is proving to be money very well spent.
I have a house full of pets, as my daughter has 4 cats, and I have a constantly molting Mini Dachshund.
Pet Hair used to be a big problem for me, Dark Carpets need a lot of attention to keep them looking good, then I managed to get a frozen shoulder, which made housework difficult and painful.
I was considering the need for a cleaning lady, but thought I would try Roomba first. It has proved to be way better than a weekly cleaner.
Initially you will need to be at home when you start with the Roomba, as rather embarrassingly the bin will be filled every few minutes and will need emptying.
After you have done a thorough house clean, set the Roomba up to do a daily clean, I do upstairs one day, and downstairs the alternate day.
I have a large house, which is more like two apartments as my daughter lives downstairs.
I find that once a week I will set to do a double sweep, and that my house is always now immaculate.
This works on wooden floors, tile,carpet and rugs in my home.
I really cannot get across how pleased I am with this Roomba
