Transforming Home Cleaning with iRobot’s Latest Innovations: Roomba Combo j9+ and Roomba j9+

Today, iRobot announced the launch of two of its smartest and most powerful models that solve pitfalls faced by competing robots – the flagship Roomba Combo® j9+ robot vacuum and mop and Roomba® j9+ robot vacuumwith new features powered by iRobot OS 7.0.

The Roomba Combo j9+ Robot Vacuum and Mop is designed to tackle dirt, pet fur and debris with unmatched precision. It has also been engineered with a unique Auto-Retract Mopping System that lifts the mop all the way to the top of the robot when detecting carpet, preventing wet messes. The Roomba j9+ Robot Vacuum is the number one robot vacuum for dirt and dust pickup – designed to thoroughly clean and freshen larger homes and those with furry pets.

Roomba Combo j9+

·        Unlike competing 2-in-1 robot vacuum and mops that barely lift their mop pads, iRobot’s D.R.I. (Dry Rug Intelligence) means customers can trust that their Roomba Combo j9+ will keep even high-pile rugs clean and dry. This is made possible because of its unique Auto-Retract Mopping System that lifts the mop all the way to the top of the robot when detecting carpet, preventing wet messes.

·        With Dirt Detective, the Roomba Combo j9+ anticipates cleaning needs for every room in the home, automatically customizes settings and cleans the dirtiest rooms first based on insights from cleaning history, so customers never need to plan where to clean. For tackling stubborn messes on hard floors, SmartScrub adds elbow grease to the mop, working back-and-forth while applying downward pressure.

·        Roomba Combo j9+ Clean Base® Auto-Fill Dock

o   The new, stylish Clean Base® Auto-fill Dock does more than ever to support the Roomba Combo j Series robot vacuum and mop. It empties debris for up to 60 days and refills liquid for up to 30 days for autonomous cleaning.

o   iRobot’s quietest Clean Base dock yet, it has been thoughtfully engineered to produce less noise while it works to empty debris and refill liquid.

·        #1 Robot Vacuum for Dirt and Dust Pickup1 

·        With Carpet Boost technology, a 3-Stage Cleaning System and Dual Rubber Brushes, the Roomba j9+ automatically detects floor type and adjusts its cleaning power to do everything from sweeping up dust to lifting and removing trapped pet hair from deep carpets. 

·        Like the Roomba Combo j9+, Dirt Detective lets the Roomba j9+ analyze past cleaning preferences, patterns and timing, so it can automatically prioritize rooms that need the most attention and customize settings like suction and number of cleaning passes room-by-room.

·        Powered by iRobot OS and Imprint® Smart Mapping technology, the Roomba Combo j9+ and Roomba j9+ understand more voice commands than other robot vacuum brands. Customers can pair their robot with Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri6 and tell their robot to clean specific rooms or near specific objects like couches, counters, dining tables or a stove.

·        With PrecisionVision navigation, the Roomba Combo j9+ and Roomba j9+ are also able to identify exactly what’s ahead, and if there’s an object it should avoid, it steers clear. This includes cords, pet bowls and toys, litter boxes, cats, dogs and pet waste. iRobot’s P.O.O.P. (Pet Owner’s Official Promise)7 guarantees a replacement if it ever sweeps over accidental pet messes.
