Availability: In stock
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.
- Makes life easy
- I have borrowed one recently and have used a few others before and this one is the best one yet! I love the app and the vacuum itself is very efficient. I have wooden floorboards only so I cant comment on its ability on carpet or how it affects its duration but if you have ever used a stick vac with the one extractor bar which spins in a forward direction you would notice that you get full pickup performance when you drag it back because as its being dragged back the bristles work against the direction... if you look at the bottom of the irobot there are two extractor bars that work in both directions which direction it goes it is getting a whole lot more up than a single extractor working one direction, also you can choose for it to work in either in a grid like pattern or in a back and forth pattern where as one other ive used that is more expensive only worked in a grid which I found to be annoying and not at all time efficient. Yes you do have to make sure there are no socks laying around and no cords laying about before its scheduled cleaning, but I would rather that than to spend the hour doing the vacuuming myself and still need to pick up all that anyway... it cuts my need to take out my Bissell Crosswave from 3-4 times a week to just once a week or if im lazy once a fortnight!

- Amazing machine
- Awesome robot ours is used daily whilst we are all at work and come home to clean floors. Only issue we have had is with the maps not working properly some times but that doesnt affect how clean the house comes up. We have been pleasently surprised with how well this robot vacuums.
