I can not imagine my life without Scrubbie! The amount of labor, energy, and time he saves us is priceless. My husband wanted Scrubbie to help him after my surgery. I encouraged him, knowing that afterwards Scrubbie would be "mine-all-mine"! Scrubbie cleans better than any human I've met. We have 4 white Persians and our Roomba (Fluffy) picks up all their fluffy white fur off the floor before we sic Scrubbie in the room. Persians have a habit of throwing up fur balls. Now we know that Scrubbie sanitizes after "an event". (It is an especially good thing now with grandchildren crawling on the floors.) What is great about Scrubbie? Ans: Everything! My only regret is that we did not get a Scooba earlier. It is criminal to think of all the time I wasted cleaning floors before Scrubbie arrived in our home. Yey Scrubbie!

REALLY dissapointed !!! I have used this on sealed hardwood and tile. It DOES clean eventually (with alot of help) but it LEAKS often and it gets stuck and then refuses to start again unless you manually restart it. I have never been able to leave this produck alone ---- seriously NOT once --- and come back to find that it has completed the job. Instead I find it somewhere in the room waiting for my attention to restart it. I also find that when I restart it, it never seems to know where it has been and does not clean the entire room. I have checked for loose fiber or anything that could cause the maching wheels to 'stick' but nothing ever seems to be there. Additionally, the leakage as it is cleaning is equally dissapointing. I have to use a paper towel often (say 8 out of 10) times to clean up after the cleaner lol. It also needs to be refilled during a relatively small clean because of it leaking or applying way too much liquid to the floor. I assumed the first unit was defective now this is my second. They have behaved exactly the same. I am not a hard to please customer. All I wanted was it to not get stuck (sure every once and while but every time??) and be automated at least to the point that if it does get stuck when I reset it, it would finfish the job (know where it has already been) and not need to be refilled 2 on small jobs because it is leaking (at worst) or at a questionabe best applying far too much liquid to the floor. I have tried all the solutions offered by the company to no avail. What also concerns me is that on a purley does it work as stated level this is one of the lowest rated products I see from the company. Most of the reviews I have read are complaing about the same thing and have been for some time if archives of complaints were available --- leaks, restarts, not knowing 'where' it is after te restart. So why in all this time has this products not been redsigned? Sorry to be a down on the company because I think you are a very inventive group and its apparant you took some very 'easy' sounding ideas that were no easy at all and not only made them (almost all) work but also managed to sell them --- so PLEASE fix this one product because it a GREAT idea !!!! GOOD LUCK and no hard feelings.

A great companion to Roomba

By 

from Ooltewah, TN

About Me Homeowner

Pros

  • Cleans Effectively
  • Cleans Under Furniture
  • Covers Entire Room
  • Hassle Free Operation
  • Quiet

Cons

    Best Uses

    • High Traffic Rooms
    • Large Rooms
    • Tile Floors

    We love our Roomba and decided to get a Scooba. It was my Christmas present. I've used it 3 times and really like it. We have a large kitchen/keeping room/breakfast room/office/pantry with tile floors - a really large area to Swiffer or mop. This has done a great job on this area as well as the bathroom. Now, it's more of a floor washer than a floor scrubber. You may have to get a few of the stubborn spots up yourself but it's a lot easier than my real floor scrubber and it's a lot easier to clean. Just pour in the cleaner or water or vinegar solution (yes, you can use that) and start it. When finished, empty the tank and clean the tube, filter and brush/squeegee assembly. Very quick and easy. It doesn't dry our floor real well (that's the season for the 4 stars instead of 5) but what water is left drys quickly and it doesn't leave streaks. I highly recommend this, along with the Roomba.

    Do not ever buy a Scooba!!!

    By 

    from Malaysia

    About Me Busy household

    Pros

    • Cleans Effectively

    Cons

    • Frequent Maintenance
    • Loses Charge Quickly
    • Needs Constant Monitoring

    Best Uses

    • Tile Floors

    The Scooba needs more than 3 hours of charging in order to function for slightly more than 1 hour. It is also unable to climb up slopes that my Roomba crosses with ease. It requires a lot of human intervention. I have to constantly monitor it to make sure that it does not stop working. I do NOT recommend anyone to buy a Scooba unless all weaknesses are rectified.

    Great When Used With Other Robots

    About Me Busy household, Homeowner, Pet Owner

    Pros

    • Covers Entire Room
    • Deep Cleaning Ability
    • Long Run Time

    Cons

    • Can Get Stuck
    • Leave Water On Floor
    • Noisy

    Best Uses

    • Pet Hair
    • Tile Floors

    I have had various robots over the years with varying degrees of issues. The newer models are definitely an improvement. I didn't use any robots for a several years, after which I tried to use only a Scooba in my four-Standard Poodle, three-cat home close to the beach. I learned quickly that the Scooba will not pick up sand. I could run my hand over my damp floor and feel the grit. I added the Braava and found that it, too, would not get the sand. However, I really like it for a quick damp mop and use it almost daily. Next I added the Roomba and it is very effective on the sand. It is programmed to sweep all rooms except my bedroom every night. I now use my "team" and my floors are always extremely clean with very little effort on my part. The Scooba does get stuck easily but I just quickly move a few things around, leave the house and return to a clean floor. Sometimes I use the Braava with a dry cloth at the same time as the Scooba. Braava gives the floors a bit more of a workout and picks up the extra water that the Scooba leaves. I have porcelain tile (hand-scraped wood look) throughout so with the indentations in the floor, water pick-up is not great. Personally, I would not use Scooba on wood or laminate floors due to the amount of water left behind, but I would use Braave on either of them. I gave the Scooba only four stars because to keep my floors in perfect shape requires three different robots. But believe me, I love it!

      A year ago I purchased a Roomba 770. My expectations were not high for a robot's performance. The Roomba really proved itself to me. So I finally broke down and purchased the Scooba 390. As with the Roomba, my expectations were not high. But I figured anything would help. I am pleasantly surprised at the job the Scooba did on my tile floors. It allows me to multi task.

      About Me Busy household, Family Small Kids, Homeowner

      Pros

      • Cleans Effectively
      • Deep Cleaning Ability
      • Gets The Floors Sparkling

      Cons

      • Clean Pattern Is Random
      • Gets Confused
      • Gets Stuck On Air Vents
      • Loud So Loud
      • Passes Through V Walls
      • Wakes Up Guests Kids

      Best Uses

      • Hardwood Floors
      • High Traffic Rooms
      • Large Rooms

      When this product works, it is AWESOME. Cleans floors super shiny.

      BUT...to set it up I have to barricade it in my open kitchen - it often ignores the virtual walls and gets stuck under my couch.
      It also gets stuck on my air vents so I have to barrier these off too.
      Barricading the room is a pain. And if I miss something, it gets stuck. After a 10 minute set up I leave the house, only to come home to still dirty floors and a Scooba beeping it is stuck.
      I have a layout where the kitchen is open and has an island in the middle. This confuses the Scooba and often only one side of the island gets cleaned.
      I have had numerous issues with the unit - 3 have been sent me (minus battery). I just started to use it again and now it is beeping me AGAIN that the dirty water is full (it is not). This issue has happened 4 times now - won't run because it says it is 'full'.
      Customer Service has been really nice. The last time I called they said it must be an environmental issue. I have 2 toddlers, and a 'normal' sized kitchen, I would think I am the target user.

      If it worked 90% time, there isn't a better product out there. But it works 30% of the time.

      It is LOUD. I can't watch TV or even talk on the phone when it is running. It runs for 45 minutes. We try to run it at night as we go to bed but it started waking up my toddler. We ran it in the early morning once and woke up our guests.

      Doesn't work as well as Roomba

      By 

      from Phoenix, AZ

      About Me Homeowner, Pet Owner

      Pros

        Cons

        • Can Get Stuck
        • Often Gets Stuck
        • Often Passes Virtual Wall

        Best Uses

        • Small Rooms

        After owning a Roomba and quite happy about it, wanted something to clean the hardwood and tile floors.

        This product does ok if the room is enclosed as it often goes past the virtual wall, and if it isn't in the kitchen, where it can get hung up going under the cabinets and diswasher.

        Doesn't seem to have a reverse which I think would help out a lot in getting hung up. Instead it just tries to rotate and move forward which often compounds the hangup.

        I have to watch it carefully for when it does get hung up otherwise it just sits there running and doesn't stop.

        By 

        from Urbana, Illinois

        About Me Homeowner, Long Time Scooba Owner, Pet Owner, Retired Teacher

        Pros

        • Cleans Reasonably Well
        • Long Run Time

        Cons

        • Can Get Stuck
        • Doesn't Clean Bad Spots
        • Not good with pet hair

        Best Uses

        • Light General Cleaning

        This is my 8th or 9th scooba, my second 390. Had to send 2-4 of the earlier ones back for exchanges. Had to send first 390 back after 4-5 months. I keep trying the new scoobas because I love the concept of a robot doing the druge work. And there is no question that the 390 is a HUGE improvement over earlier models: hour long run time; much easier to clean and maintain. Moreover the company is great to deal with. But for my household, which is admittedly tough with 6 dogs, it only does a mediocre job. I have the house cleaned professionally every two weeks and then use scooba 2-4 times a week mainly on the living room (ceramic tile). The result is a tolerably clean floor. It is important to clean the machine after every use and pay special attention to the brush as that can easily clog. I am not sorry that I bought the 390 but with its hefty price its a decision that should be made knowing the machine's limitations. For more difficult households this is not a substitute for a professional cleaning. I would recommend to a friend WITH careful caveats as to what to expect/not-expect.

        Wasted a lot of time troubleshooting.

        from Tampa, FL

        Front caster wheel problem took me quite a while to figure out. Upset at the waste of time troubleshooting something that should not wear out in 10-15 uses. Better design should have been created by now, but I robot is probably enjoying the replacement parts all of us are forced to buy.

            My unit has been replaced many times in the one year I have owned it. This unit need redesign. The handle breaks frequently and one has to buy a whole tank as they don't sell any repair pieces for anything; just wheels, brushes and small exterior things. I currently use it by taking off the broken handle and holding the top down with two large cans of tomatoes from my pantry. (Not funny) I returned the unit three times and now have to purchase another tank. The wheels only last for three months on my tile floors. Way too much stress here... always breaking or stuck against a wall. Hope this comment is not reject by IRobot as it is the truth!
