Product Details

iRobot Scooba 450 Floor Washing Robot, Model S450020

The new Scooba 450 is the only robot that scrubs hard floors so you don't have to. Just fill the tank, press CLEAN and the Scooba Three-Cycle Cleaning Process automatically sweeps and pre-soaks, scrubs, then squeegees your floors, tackling stuck-on messes and washing away over 99.3% of bacteria.* Scooba 450 is the perfect choice for brilliantly clean hard floors, every day, the easy way.

Features:

Scooba 450 delivers maximum cleaning performance. The key is iRobot's Pre-Soak Technology, developed as part of the Scooba Three-Cycle Cleaning Process.

The Scooba Three-Cycle Cleaning Process
Based on professional-grade floor cleaners, the revolutionary new Scooba Three-Cycle Cleaning Process has been redesigned from the ground up to clean hard-surface floors three tiimes better than ever before. Here's how it works:

  • Cycle 1 Sweep and Pre-Soak: Scooba sweeps up loose dirt and debris and puts down a thin sheen of water or iRobot Hard Floor Cleaner to soak into any stuck-on messes.
  • Cycle 2 Scrub and Squeegee-Vacuum: A scrubbing brush spins at over 600 RPM to remove grime while the squeegee vacuum suctions dirty water off the floor.
  • Cycle 3 Squeegee-Finish: Scooba ends with a final squeegee-finish cycle.

Use Scooba 450 anywhere you would use a mop and bucket, including tile, linoleum, vinyl, marble, slate, stone and sealed hardwood. Unlike a mop that reuses dirty water, Scooba uses fresh solution from start to finish.

Easy To Use
Just fill the robot and press CLEAN. Scooba 450 is easy to use from beginning to end:

  • Easy To Fill And Empty: Fill and empty the tank in seconds without fuss.
  • Two Cleaning Cycles: Choose from a full 40-minute cycle or 20-minute cycle for smaller spaces.
  • Cleans With Water Or iRobot Hard Floor Cleaner: Use water or iRobot Hard Floor Cleaner for a deeper clean to wsh away bacteria.
  • Avoids Off-Limit Areas: A Virtual Wall keeps Scooba in rooms you want to clean and out of ones you don't.
  • Compatible with Roomba Accessories: Scooba 450 is compatible with Roomba Virtual Walls, battery charger and batteries.
  • Talks To You: The information button and audible cues give you insight into robot behaviors.
  • Simple To Clean: Removable cleaning head makes for easy access to brushes and squeegee for a quick clean by hand.

iAdapt Responsive Navigation Technology

  • Using iAdapt Technology, the advanced system of software and sensors used in Roomba, Scooba 450 offers complete coverage of every section of floor. iAdapt has been modified for wet floors to optimize the timing between recurrent passes on the floor.
  • Scooba 450 makes multiple passes over every section of floor to ensure the most thorough coverage possible. Scooba 450 cleans rooms up to 300 square feet in one cleaning cycle.
  • Scooba 450 cleans dust and dirt right along wall edges. The robot's light-touch bumper system minimizing impact with walls and furniture. The soft-touch bumper has a non-marking strip to prevent damage to furniture and marking of walls and baseboards. Smart, built-in sensors help Scooba avoid rugs, carpets, stairs and other drop-offs.

I love the new Scooba. It works really well. I have laminate and tile floors, and it mops and dries both types perfectly. I like that I can set it up to run before I go out and come home to a clean floor. My floors now get mopped much more frequently than they did before.
It took me a little while to get used to the noise, since the robot sounds more like a vacuum than a hand mop (which of course is nearly silent), but once I adjusted to that idea, it doesn't both me at all, even if I'm in the same room.
I also got a charging and drying stand and I LOVE it! It elevates the Scooba so it's not dripping on the floor when it's done, and it takes up less space standing vertically than with the regular charger. The stand also looks sleek and lets me highlight my robot instead of sliding it under a corner cabinet to charge.

I typically use this in my kitchen and high traffic areas to clean and sanitize as we have a infant crawler who is all over the floor.

Like most new products, some kinks have to be worked out. Where Scooba falls short is the final stages of squeegee cleanup. It just doesn't work on my floors, which are admittedly older hardwood that is not always level. It also seems to give too much of a buffer for virtual walls. I have to set them about 2 feet further out than what I expected because otherwise Scooba doesn't come anywhere close to the boundary. I feel like I have to babysit this thing. While Scooba works well, I'm just not convinced it was worth the purchase.

    Comments about iRobot Scooba 450 Floor Washing Robot:

    My kitchen & bathroom floors are much cleaner than our Brava 380 could get them. I do run our Roomba 880 before using the Scooba to get up dirt, hair, etc. We have ceramic tile with a heavily textured surface set in fairly wide deep grout (think Mexican tile). I see a noticeable improvement on the tile edges and in the grout as compared to damp mopping with our Braava 380, but it's still not 100% - thus 4 stars rather than 5 (wish there was something that really went down into the grout lines). While the room size of my kitchen is small, I used the large area cleaning mode to get extra scrubbing time. Note that you CANNOT use vinegar, or any Clorox (even the iRobot Clorox which can be used with other iRobot products), or any cleaning solution except the iRobot brand with the Scooba 450 - it voids the warranty. The Scooba does not go up on thicker carpeting, nor does it wet the edge of that carpeting. However, it will climb up on thinner carpeting. It does a fantastic job of getting itself out of slots, such as along the narrow space between the toilet and adjacent wall (it wiggles around until the front is facing out the slot and then just shoots out). The diameter of the Scooba is 14.5" (bigger than a Roomba) so it won't go around toilets that have really narrow spaces along the sides. Watching it shake itself at the end of a cycle is hilarious - and better than a dog, it then circles around and gets up the water it has shaken off. And finally, it is very easy to clean when you're finished.

    Better at cleaning small rooms , i clean a large area and by the time it has to pick up the liquid the floor has already dried.. I have about 800 sq. ft. Of vinyl flooring, I do 400 sq. ft. At a time and it works great.
    Due to health problems I can not wash floors this is a very helpful friend
    I love the irobot company, they have been so helpful with their customer service.

      Comments about iRobot Scooba 450 Floor Washing Robot:

      I absolutely love my Scooba 450 and couldn't live without it. It hasn't been hassle free-I had to send in the original robot twice for repair or replacement when I first got it, but it was definitely worth the trouble. I have had it for over a year now, and use it every day, rotating small areas for it to clean. I have a lot of tile, and mopping was the job I couldn't stand. I will purchase every future improved model of this product forever. It is pricey but in my household, it has paid for itself because otherwise I would hire a cleaning person. Without the floors to worry about, I am happy and capable of doing it all on my own.

      Soak feature allows water to evaporte before it is sucked up

      from Des Mones, IA

      About Me Busy household, Homeowner, Pet Owner

      Pros

        Cons

        • Soak feature allows water to evaporate too soon

        Best Uses

          Comments about iRobot Scooba 450 Floor Washing Robot:

          The Scooba 390 was perfect. The 450's soak function reduced the effectiveness of the Scooba dramatically. At least that is what I believe causes there to be very little water in the dirty tank. It appears that when it lays down water to "soak", most of the water evaporates before it gets back around to vacuum it up. So all it is doing is adding soap to the dirt on the floor, if you are using soap. If not, it is simply laying water down on top of your dust and debris. I am extremely hopeful that the next version upgrade will not have this soak function. If you've experienced the same thing, please voice your opinion so we can get that taken off of the next Scooba!

          • Kitchens
          • Tracked in mud

          Comments about iRobot Scooba 450 Floor Washing Robot:

          I have owned a Scooba 350/399 since that model came out. Our kitchen is the main entrance to the house and we keep chickens and garden, so are constantly tracking in mud. Scooba has been invaluable, but the 350 had issues, particularly maintenance.

          The 450 is a marked improvement in design and functionality. It stands on its side, so takes less space while charging. The new rollers are MUCH easier to clean. The tank can be cleaned much more effectively, which was a major issue with the 350. Most importantly, the 350 ports used to get clogged with all sorts of muck and were difficult to clean effectively. If you let it sit, compacted material could block water flow. The 450 has a shorter passage and can be cleaned easily. The new screen is also MUCH easier to keep clean.

          I like the more informative information on errors and progress. The 450 scoots much faster around the floor and the new brushes and squeegies seem to clean more effectively. The height also works better with my cabinets. The 350 would catch under cabinets - I had to put thin pieces of wood under them so it would run without supervision. This works better. The new lighthouses also communicate with my roomba, so I don't need to have two different sets of lighthouses to keep roomba in and scooba out of my kitchen.

          I love the Scooba. When I bought my first one, I had doubts that it could clean effectively. I was very pleasantly surprised. What you have to know about all robot cleaners is that they make up with time what they lack in efficiency. They don't clean like you do. They do a fast pick up. They lay down water and let it soak to take up the dirt more easily. Then they do more of a scrub and squeegie.

          I set it to run when I go to bed and smile every morning when I walk into a clean kitchen. Once a month I go in and do odd corners it can't reach with a sponge. The rest of the time I spend less than 5 minutes a day with scooba and get great floors.

            • Hardwood Floors

            Comments about iRobot Scooba 450 Floor Washing Robot:

            I would not recommend buying the Scooba. One of my main reasons for purchasing the Scooba was to save time; unfortunately, it does not save me very much time. I have had to set it up (5 min.), go to its rescue because it became lodged under furniture and cabinets (5 min.), correct the errors saying it was stuck on a perfectly flat surface (2 min.), and clean it (5 min. - while listening to it repeatedly tell me to turn it upright - I turn it upside-down to take off the brush attachment and clean it). On average I spend 10-20 minutes to clean one 300 square foot room. I can clean that size room by hand in that amount of time. Considering I have to do this several times because of the size of my house, it becomes quite annoying. Also, my Scooba lasted about a year and a half which is not impressive considering the cost. The thing is annoying too; there are constant warnings and beeping. It becomes clogged constantly, and I have to clean the screen which doesn't appear to have any debris on it, but after it is cleaned, it works again. This machine is too much trouble.

              This machine sometimes does not finish the job. I just watched it lay down fluid on my kitchen hardwood floor, over and over without ever doing the the very important squeegee and vacuum part. Scooba left the water on the floor and announced it was done. Plenty of remaining battery charge, small room, no excuse...Sometimes it does all the cycles, but on a large room it leaves water to evaporate before it gets to the cleaning cycles.
