Product Details

iRobot Scooba Robotic Floor Washer - 74249

This is the Scooba® (invented by the creators of the Roomba®), an autonomous robot that efficiently and simultaneously prepares, washes, and scrubs tile, linoleum, or sealed hardwood floors, without human intervention. Using tap water, vinegar, or a bleach-free solution, Scooba methodically cleans a medium-sized kitchen floor in as little as one hour, navigating independently (the Scooba can clean up to 250' sq. on a full charge of its rechargeable battery). As it passes over flooring, the robot picks up loose dirt and sprays solution, while a rotary scrubber gently cleans. The robot is compact enough to reach under cabinet kick boards and most furniture, and at the touch of a button, it courses through a room, moving around chair legs, ledges, and other roadblocks thanks to patented AWARE sensor technology that redirects the robot when it gently encounters an object. Cleans a standard-sized kitchen floor on a single tank, and it can be restricted to clean specific areas using the included Virtual Wall® (additional walls sold separately) that creates an infrared beam the Scooba will not cross. Includes 8 oz. of cleaning solution (about four tanks full), built-in rechargeable battery, and AC adapter.

My husband and I bought this on a whim and I am so glad we did! We absolutely love the Scooba iRobot! We love that we can leave to run errands while leaving the scooba running and come home to a clean and dry floor! It has cut my household cleaning time in half. We wish it came with more solution, but we are grateful there are cheap solution alternatives that we already had around the house! I use the scooba weekly...who wouldn't clean their house every other day when you don't have to do hardly anything!!

I love what this company produces. I've owned multiple Roomba's. Never complained when they died after 1.5 years. Went right out and purchased a new one. Why? I hate vacuuming.

I love what this company produces. I've owned multiple Roomba's. Never complained when they died after 1.5 years. Went right out and purchased a new one. Why? I hate vacuuming.

Scooba comes along. I have a ceramic kitchen floor. Black. Two dogs. Scooba is my dream solution for stunning kitchen design that requires lots of cleaning to keep it looking good. Problems: Scooba 5800 and its predecessor have no traction when it comes to the grout lines in the tile. An ideal upgrade to this product would be to elevate the front end of the Scooba for better clearance, put on bigger tires that can traverse a 1/4 inch grout line and extend the squeegee to ensure constant contact across the uneven surface. So when I run my Scooba I have to stand in the kitchen and nudge it with my foot every time it gets stuck - this is about every 4 minutes or less. So I eliminate getting my hands dirty mopping but I don't really save any time because I have to baby sit the robot!

On a positive. The Scooba works great on wood floors. I like the addition of the vinegar option. I like how it cleans my black kitchen floor.

Please make an upgrade that can handle an uneven surface better.

  • Noisy

Comments about iRobot Scooba Robotic Floor Washer:

I use this to mop by bathrooms, kitchen and living room floors in combination with my Roomba. Keeps my floors nice and clean with 3 large dogs and 5 cats in the house..

Doesn't get in the corners, so I have to do those, but that takes just a few seconds, and it doesn't get around the tight places, but I will be getting a Scooba 230 when it becomes available for those areas.

Worthless to me

    • Discharges dirty water
    • Gets stuck in corner
    • Gets stuck on carpet

      Comments about iRobot Scooba Robotic Floor Washer:

      I received this for a Christmas present and had high hopes for finally being able to keep my tiled kitchen, dining room, and hallway clean. However, the machine constantly got stuck on the low pile carpet that abuts the dining room. It also got stuck under the cabinets and in a corner under the cabinet. In addition, when it got stuck on the carpet, it discharged dirty solution onto the carpet, so now I have even more cleaning to do?
      Although, it seemed like it would be easy to use, I'm going to try to get a refund. Bad experience overall.

        Comments about iRobot Scooba Robotic Floor Washer:

        I would recommend this to a friend that has lots of time and money to waste. It is rather entertaining to watch, but a real hassle if you are counting on clean floors and the robot decides to not work that day. I could have cleaned the floors several times with all the time have have spent trouble shooting this machine, I have bought new batteries and tanks and solution and wheels. It cleaned the floor about 12 times before it started dollaring me to death. The machine broke the same day the warrentee ran out. It does a great job on my kitchen floor and squeegee's all the dirty water up and makes the floors feel so good on bare feet, unfortunately it doesn't work anymore.

          Comments about iRobot Scooba Robotic Floor Washer:

          This lil guy is wonderful. I had been brought up where the kitchen floor had to be clean. Weekly if not more often washings were the norm. I have a 15'x12' open kitchen...love when my scooba cleans it for me. I use this about every third day! I have a totally open space home & when the hard wood needs it they get done as well...about once a month.
          I love all the robot products & was thrilled to get them 3 yrs ago. Not a one of them sits idle. I actually would love another roomba. Keep up the good work.
          My only negative in all this is that the motors are a bit noisy. I have to leave the ares if I need to answer the phone as people ask what it the noise.
          This too will change with the technology I am sure.

          I love the idea of this product, however broke right away. Bought mine in 08 2008 and was not working buy 09 2008. I never got around to sending it back, got busy and just wrote off the money spent. I own a 500 series and a discovery Roomba and I honestly never want to be without them. My Roombas are Awsome! The Scooba just fell way short of being helpful. Perhaps the newer versions are a better value.

          Comments about iRobot Scooba Robotic Floor Washer:

          I like this item. It is very intuitive. My only complaints are the battery life and not sure what cycle it is in as it operates. It doesn't seem to last long enough to get it through all of its cycles. I also wish Irobot would put lights on it to tell you what it is doing at the moment. It seems to wash, but when is it vacuuming and squeegee'ing? When is it cleaning? When is the battery about to peter out? If I use 2 batteries, it should be able to pick up where I left off, not sure if it does that. I would recommend it, but Irobot needs to innovate just a bit more to make this machine what it's potential has. Thanks.

            Bought the scooba 330 to mop my white linoleum high traffic kitchen floor. Was skeptical at first, but amazed by the results. I use a wheelchair and am always tracking dirt in on the wheels of the chair. I love that it's quick to fill the tank & go. I let it mop while i'm away and come home to clean floors. Spend 5 minutes cleaning brush and filter when its done. Best money i have ever spent!
