Indian homes and lifestyles today are a far cry from what they used to be a decade or so ago. Technology has permeated every aspect of our lives, be it work or play. We shop, we socialise, we eat, we travel, we bank, we entertain, all with a few taps on our smartphones; so why not clean too? With homes that are getting smarter with the arrival of IoT gadgets, our smart floor cleaning robots, Roomba 980 and Braava jet, are the perfect addition to the modern Indian household.

With varying floor types and area, carpets and pets, and an increasingly dusty/polluted environment, Indian homes are the perfect candidates for our completely autonomous, vacuuming and floor mopping robots. 

Here’s why Roomba 980 and Braava jet are a must for Indian homes


Most homes today have a mix of different types of floors; tiles/marble for the living area, kitchen and bathrooms, and hardwood/laminate for the bedrooms. Each floor type needs specific care in order to be cleaned and maintained, especially delicate hardwood flooring, which looks classy, but is expensive and difficult to maintain. Vacuum cleaning Robot Roomba 980 automatically adjusts itself to clean different floor types as it moves through your home expertly vacuuming away dirt, dust and other debris.

Mopping robot Braava jet, also suitable for all hard floors, comes with 3 modes of mopping/sweeping i.e. wet, dry and damp, and you can choose the right one for each different floor type in your home. Also, when it comes to homes with more than one floor level, the presence of staircases is a given. Cliff detect technology in Roomba 980 and Braava jet, help prevent the robots from falling down stairs and other drop offs.


We Indians are not new to carpets. Dhurries and carpets have been part of our homes for quite some years now, and keeping them clean has always been a challenge. Not anymore! Roomba 980 with its carpet boost feature, increases vacuuming power by up to 10 times on carpets and rugs, effectively suctioning away dirt, pet hair, allergens and other particulate matter as small as 10 microns! Now, in case of Braava jet, which is a mopping robot, you would wonder how to keep it away from your carpets! Well, you don’t have to; the smart mopping robot uses a bump and go technology that helps it steer clear of carpets and rugs.

Furniture and Clutter -

Sofas, couches, futons, dining table and chairs, bean bags, beds and what not. Our homes are filled with furniture of all kinds, and if you have kids, then you are not new to clutter on the floor in the form of bags, books, toys, shoes etc. Cleaning under furniture and around clutter is fraught with difficulty, and the area under furniture is a hub for dirt and dust collecting over time as these are not easily accessible areas and are cleaned not very often. Our smart robots are just the helpers you need to keep ahead of the dirt and dust that creep up in those hard to reach areas.

With their compact design and low-profiles, both Roomba 980 and Braava jet can reach under most furniture and navigate around clutter using their advanced navigation technology. 


Gone are the days when pets were confined to their kennels outdoors. Today they are like one in the family, sharing the couch, the carpet and even the bed! And we’re not complaining, given the incredible love and happiness they bring into our lives. But they do also bring in the problems of pet hair and dander, which along with covering your floors and getting into your carpets, can also cause allergies.

And that's exactly where Roomba 980 can come to your rescue. The robot is very effective when it comes to getting rid of pesky pet hair and dander from your home, thanks to its AeroForce® High-Efficiency Filter and the presence of tangle free brushless extractors that prevent tangles and jams. Braava jet, in dry sweep mode, is also highly effective in sweeping away pet hair from your floors.

And, that is not all; Roomba 980 and Braava jet can be controlled through the iRobot HOME app on your smartphone! So wherever you may be, your home can be cleaned by just tapping on the clean button in the app. There’s a lot more to these amazing floor cleaning robots, and you can check out all the features on our website
