iRobot’s compact Scooba 230 will be available in the markets of Latin America and the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa). Several global markets are getting familiar with the company’s Scooba 300 series.

Scooba Floor Washing Robots use revolutionary cleaning features. Some of the features are listed below.

  • Uses clean solutions to wash the floor, tile, linoleum and sealed hardwood floors
  • The incorporated virtual wall barriers retain the robot in the cleaning room
  • Based on iAdapt Responsive Cleaning technology, effective cleaning is ensured
  • Avoids cliffs and drop-offs
  • Uses Scooba Hard Floor Cleaner for cleaning

The new iRobot Scooba 390 has been developed based on the most sophisticated technology and latest features of the Scooba 300 series. However, with simple design and extended power life management, this Scooba 390 robot features a four-stage cleaning process such as preparation, washing, scrubbing and moping the floor, leaving a sparkling look, devoid of dirt and bacteria. The Scooba 390 can clean an area up to 450 sq.ft.

The novel Scooba 230 was specifically designed for cleaning hard floors and corner-spaces in bathrooms and kitchens, such as beneath the cabinets and around the toilet. Measuring 3.5” long and 6.5-in in diameter, the Scooba is well-suited for cleaning small spaces. By using an advanced active-reservoir design, the Scooba 230 separately holds the cleaning solution and dirty water. It works on a three-stage cleaning process, wherein it washes, scrubs and mops the floor. The incorporated removable bottom plate at the bottom enables simplified maintenance. The Scooba 230 can cover up to 150 sq. ft.
