How it works

The new Roomba 980 gives you cleaner floors, throughout your entire home, all at the push of a button. Roomba 980 seamlessly navigates an entire level of your home, keeping track of its location and recharging as needed until the job is done. The AeroForce® Cleaning System with Carpet Boost automatically increases power on carpets where it's needed most. And with the iRobot HOME App, you can clean and schedule on the go.


  • Cleans an entire level of your home: iAdapt® 2.0 Navigation with Visual Localization helps Roomba 980 seamlessly and efficiently navigate an entire level of your home and keep track of its location.
  • Automatically recharges and resumes until the job is done: Roomba 980 runs continuously for up to two hours*, then automatically recharges and resumes cleaning to complete the entire job.
  • Navigates multiple rooms: With iAdapt 2.0 Responsive Navigation, Roomba 980 uses a high-efficiency cleaning pattern and full suite of sensors to adapt to real-world clutter and furniture.
  • Cleans under sofas and chairs: Low-profile design allows Roomba to clean under most furniture and kickboards, so dirt has no place to hide.
  • Won't fall down stairs: Cliff-detection sensors allow Roomba to avoid stairs and other dangerous drop-offs.


  • Connect to clean from anywhere: The iRobot HOME App lets you clean and schedule conveniently – anytime, anywhere. It also lets you choose custom cleaning preferences and see the status of cleaning jobs.
  • Cleans all floors types: Roomba automatically adjusts to clean carpets, tile, hardwood and laminate floors as it moves through your home.
  • Automatically docks and recharges: Roomba automatically returns to its Home Base® docking station between cleanings to recharge.
  • Cleans on a schedule: Roomba can be preset to vacuum up to seven times per week.
  • Handles hair with ease: Brushless extractors prevent the tangles and jams of hair and other debris, making it even easier for Roomba to tackle daily dirt build-up.


  • Automatically increases power on carpets where it's needed most: The AeroForce® Cleaning System with Carpet Boost provides up to 10x the air power** by automatically increasing performance on carpet and rugs, where dust and dirt hide.
  • Sweeps wall edges and corners: Spinning side brush pushes debris into the path of the 3-stage cleaning system.
  • AeroForce® High-Efficiency Filter: Captures 99% of allergens, pollen, and particles as small as 10 microns.

iRobot Roomba 980 Vacuum Cleaning Robot is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my new Roomba I had an earlier Roomba model which was good, but not so useful in my old home split over a number of levels. But now, I have a 2 storied home that I can leave this latest model Roomba to do its stuff (on each floor) and have it return to its home base when it is finished, so it can charge itself for it's next use. I am not a great fan of vacuuming, so this latest model Roomba does a fantastic job to cover my laziness. I still need my non-robot Miele vacuum cleaner (also great) to get in to corners to do edges and ledges BUT not very often as most work is done by my Roomba buddy without fuss or complaint (or much effort).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded Expectations! I'd been considering a Roomba for some time and had been hesitant due to the hefty price tag. Having taken the plunge, I've absolutely no buyer's remorse now that Roomba has done a first sweep of my house. The Vacuum is surprisingly quiet (it didn't even freak the cats out, apart from when it 'snuck' up on them when they were sleeping in a bedroom) and it performed better than I expected it to. Being a fan of gadgets, the wi-fi feature is awesome. I doubt I'll be remotely activating it, but I like how easy it is to set different days and times for Roomba to do its thing. Pricey, but so totally worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it works cleans great and what a time saver what a robot it is easy to set up and with the app so easy to use . over 70 sq mts it only misses where it can't get too, which isn't many places. a bit noisey but so is the dyson vacuum and i don't have to push the roomba . it cleans so well that ive scheduled it down to only clean 4 time a week.the unit come with two virtual wall which are very handy . i can't complain about anything as it is saving me about 2 to 3 hour of work a week and probably doing a better job. i sit it in a bedroom with a full charge set it to do two passes press the clean button shut the door come back later the rooms done . as long as the leg height on furniture is 11 cm it will clean under it, ive adjusted some furniture with carpet pads and will have to get new leg for one bed but the time it will save me will be worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had a 880 and the 980 is much better ! A practical and good bit of kit rather than a gimmick or a toy. Have a open plan flat with hard floors. Had the robot about 9 month now, Could not do without it ! Twice a week my 980 ( Marvin II ) go's over the hole flat and under most of my furniture. Dust levels are very low in the hole flat are kept very low and the floor is very clean. No problem navigating from room to room and getting back to its dock. Getting my Sister one for X-mass for her new house. Got to give it 10 out of 10, Just a wish Marvin II could do the Ironing as well :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more mess My 980 runs once a day at 8am. Took a week to map the house out. However does an amazing job. Previously had 880, almost the same apart from a few more little features. Bin could be a little bigger 'if you have carpet it will fill bin quickly' for a few weeks until it's taken the dust and debris out. Am happy with the price tag as I only need to vaccum after a party or having family/friends over. 980 or 880 would be a great stylish addition to a modern home

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broke almost immediately Used twice before the roomba started detecting the floors of my apartment as not flat. Rarely finished a job, always something wrong and quite often it would drive itself into a recess and then spend the entirety of its battery shuffling backwards and forwards, unable to get back out. Very disappointed overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but Does everything you need it to do, foes not miss spots usually, really helpful if you have a busy life. However, stops working if placed on a black carpet as it recognizes it as stairs/ fall , and officially no way to disable this sensor, frustrating because about 30 squares of my house is black carpets !!
