Product Details

iRobot Roomba 581 Vacuum Cleaning Robot, Model 58704

Roomba 581 does the vacuuming for you. Using its patented three-stage cleaning system, Roomba removes dirt, pet hair and much more while automatically adjusting to clean carpets, hardwood, tile and linoleum floors as it moves through your home.

Roomba features iRobot’s iAdapt™ Responsive Cleaning Technology, an advanced system of software and sensors that allows the robot to vacuum more of your room more thoroughly. Roomba vacuums every section of your room multiple times, getting into areas you can’t easily reach, including under furniture and around everyday obstacles, vacuuming until the job is complete.

Room-to-room navigation is possible with the included Virtual Wall® Lighthouses™, which confine Roomba to methodically clean one room at a time, allowing the robot to move to the next room when finished. Easily schedule Roomba® 581 to clean whenever you want—up to seven times per week and Roomba® automatically returns to its Home Base® to dock and recharge between cycles. All you have to is press “Clean” and let the robot do the work.


  • 3-Stage Cleaning
    Roomba® 581 picks up an amazing amount of dirt, pet hair and other debris with its patented 3-stage cleaning system. A spinning side brush cleans along wall edges, counter-rotating brushes act like a dustpan and broom, and a powerful vacuum pulls dirt, hair, and debris off the brushes and into the bin.

  • Dirt Detect™
    Dirt Detect™ technology automatically senses dirtier areas and spends more time cleaning them.

  • iAdapt™ Responsive Cleaning Technology
    iAdapt™ is iRobot’s advanced system of software and sensors that allows Roomba to clean more of your room, more thoroughly. It ensures Roomba® vacuums every section of your room multiple times, cleaning areas you can’t easily reach including under furniture, around everyday obstacles, and along walls. It even avoids stairs and drop-offs, navigates past soft barriers such as couch skirts, recognizes cords and carpet fringe, and self adjusts to clean hardwood, carpet, and linoleum.

  • Room-to-Room Navigation
    Roomba 581 methodically cleans multiple rooms, one room at a time. The included Virtual Wall® Lighthouses™ confine the robot to one room and, when it is thoroughly cleaned, automatically guide it to the next.

  • On-board scheduling
    The robot can be scheduled to perform up to seven cleaning sessions per week, even when you’re not home.

  • Wireless Command Center
    The included Wireless Command Center allows you to perform all of Roomba’s functions, including scheduling, cleaning and even steering, all without getting up.

Comments about iRobot Roomba 581 Vacuum Cleaning Robot:

I loved this when I first received it but after about 10 uses I begin to have problems . I had to replace the brush heads as the bearings were messed up . The tech said because of the dog hair I should get the blue brush assembly It was on back order . I also got a upgraded dust bin . All for $ 75.00 I hope this works better ...
I love the roomba it is so easy to use . I have a bad back and can't vacumn ..I love the remote ...

Comments about iRobot Roomba 581 Vacuum Cleaning Robot:

Does the job well and easy to empty dust trap. My dog hates other vacuum cleaners but he doesn't care about Roomba at all, so they co-exist. Picks up pet hair and dust just fine. We run it every other day and keeps the house super clean. I wish it can be thinner and smaller so it can go under more places or can move better under dinning table and chairs that have 20 legs to make it bump everywhere!
