iRobot Scooba 450 Floor Scrubbing Robot
Scrubbing floors doesn’t happen as often as it should. The iRobot Scooba 450 is the only robot that tackles the tedious work of scrubbing hard floors so you don’t have to. Scooba 450 is the perfect choice for thoroughly clean sealed hard floors every day, the easy way. Scooba automatically sweeps & pre-soaks, scrubs, then squeegees your floors, cleaning stuck-on messes and washing away up to 99.3% of bacteria. * The revolutionary new Scooba Three-Cycle Cleaning Process with pre-soak technology has been redesigned from the ground up to clean hard floors three times better than ever before with even less work for you. Just fill the robot and press ‘Clean’; the proof is in the tank. Featuring iAdapt Responsive Navigation Technology, Scooba effortlessly navigates around your home, avoiding rugs, stairs and obstacles and covering the floor multiple times for maximum cleaning performance. Unlike a mop, Scooba uses fresh solution from start to finish, never putting dirty water back down on your floors. Scooba 450’s scrubbing brush spins at over 600 rpm to tackle grime and stuck-on messes. *When used as directed with iRobot Hard Floor Cleaner, laboratory testing results indicate removal of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria after two passes of the Scooba Floor Scrubbing Robot. Individual results may vary.

Its advanced system of software and sensors enables Scooba to navigate its way around rooms up to 300 Square Feet, covering every area of floor multiple times, maximizing the removal of grime and stuck-on messes for a complete clean. Dual-Compartment Tank keeps clean and dirty water separated, so Scooba 450 will never put dirty water back down on your floors. Two Cleaning Options let you choose from a full 40-minute cycle for rooms up to 300 Square feet or a 20-minute cycle for smaller spaces of up to 150 square feet. Easy to Use with Scooba’s information button and verbal cues that tell you everything you need to know to use Scooba.

I made the mistake of giving this to my wife as a gift. Even though it's an expensive piece of technology, it's still a mop. And wives don't like mops as presents. Once she saw it in action, though, she was sold. In order to test it out, I mopped the floor the old fashioned way one last time. Then I ran Scooba over it. When Scooba was done, the water that came out of her tank (yes, she's a she) looked like chocolate milk and our floor looked amazing. The tile in our kitchen is natural stone (honed quartz) and more porous than ceramic tile, so apparently there was A LOT of dirt in there that regular mopping has a hard time getting to. The brushes on the Scooba are so fast (600 rpm, yes, it makes a little noise) that it scrubs the dirt out of the floor. It is, however, still gentle enough to use on any type of flooring that you would mop with water, including natural stone. Same goes for the cleaner, completely safe and gentle enough to use on it (you can use vinegar as well).
- Cleans floors better than you can (trust me) short of spending a day on hands and knees scrubbing with a brush and rinsing over and over
- Does it in about 40 minutes
- You don't have to sweep before starting Scooba up! Although, with five kids I try to at least pick up anything big
- Doesn't require supervision (once you have your fill of watching in amazement)
- It's not inexpensive
- It doesn't quite handle mopping my kitchen and dining room at once. It can almost do it, but the area is so big that the water from one pass starts to dry up before Scooba makes it back. We've found we're better off using the light walls to block it off and do the kitchen and dining room separately
- My two year old is scared of it
- Use vinegar when you run out of cleaning solution
- Make sure to empty and rinse your Scooba when it's done cleaning and leave the caps off so it dries out well (or by one of these: Dry Dock Charging and Drying Stand for iRobot Scooba S450)
- Keep it plugged when not in use to maintain batter life
- Clean out the filter after every few uses! You have to unscrew it with a philips screwdriver, and then rinse it out. If you don't do this, it will become clogged and Scooba will stop putting down water! It took me a call to support to realize this was my issue, but the customer service was GREAT and they sent me a free bottle of cleaning solution for my trouble.
Unpacking the unit, the first thing I noticed was that this design was drastically different than what I've been using for the last several years. It looks like they stopped making a separate body style for the Scoobas, and consolidated on a single design. This one is very much designed just like the Roomba, replacing the dirt bin with the water tank. This also means that cleaning of the Scooba itself is easier, and the brush scrubber area where the scrubbing takes place removes much easier for rinsing than the previous models. This model also has more useful symbol/light feedback on the top of the unit. There is a dedicated info button that can give you current status, as well there is more visual feedback as to the status of the cycle (lights that build until complete) and more feedback in the status color of the battery as it charges.
Charging is fast and easy, filling is easy, and overall maintenance and use seems simpler than the previous models. The quick start guide had only images and it was fantastically well thought out. This model offers a lot more voice prompts to tell you what is going on and if it needs help, what it needs-- dirty water full, can't detect water bin, needs charged, done, etc.
Turning the device on for the first time, it has the option to choose small or large room size. This is also an improvement over previous models. I started the cleaning cycle and ZOOM! This thing races across the floor, easily double the speed of my previous model. As it raced across the floor I was initially concerned that something was wrong. The squeegee is so effective that I thought it wasn't properly putting down the cleaning liquid. A test with my hand confirmed that it was damp, so I know it was cleaning. A couple other things: I don't prefer that this one has no dedicated error voice or code when it's stuck and needs restarted. All past Roombas and Scoobas would give a real tone that you can recognize when it needs assistance. I was finding it silent thinking it must be done, but nothing.
It did a good job cleaning, and I have a challenging floor-- a wood floor so old that the nails that hold it down are square head hand-forged nails. The floor doesn't look uneven, but for a robot it can be a challenge. While many of the challenges it posed to my old Scooba were gone due to new functionality of this model, this model brought me some new challenges.
This unit was a little bit more willing to hop up on my rugs than the previous model. They are very thin rugs. Most of them I take up anyway to clean under, but I have one under an antique coffee table that is oak, heavy, and difficult to move off of the rug. As well, this model is a bit more stubborn at times.
The old model would let me end a cycle if I was satisfied that the floor had been adequately cleaned & dried. This one won't do so (so far as I can tell). I have a tiny bathroom with hard floor that I usually clean second after my main floor. The battery was still good, so I shut it off, emptied dirty water, refilled clean water and moved to the second room. I turn it on, press go.. oops! It wants to do more drying. I turn it off, back on again, oops! It still wants to dry. Ok. I let it finish it's stubborn tirade. I turn it back on when complete to clean this 3'x6' bathroom, and NOPE! It demands to be emptied and charged. Okay. I give up. :) I'll look into whether there is a way to tell it that I want it to move on from its last assignment.
One thing I did notice is that at the end of a cycle this Scooba does a little dance: it kind of reminds me of a dog shaking off water after having a bath, or kicking the back legs and scratching the ground. It does this, pauses, does it again and is done. I assume this has something to do with forcing any lodged water off or drying out some spot inside. At first I thought there was a problem, but in the end it's a bit funny and entertaining. :)
To be honest, I went through a lot of batteries in my previous Scooba. I didn't use it daily or even weekly, and I know it is good to keep charging and using batteries. Maybe this unit is keeping me from ruining the battery, but the inflexibility combined with the rug hopping caused me to ding it a star.
There are two things that I like a lot about this new model-- first being that the entire mechanisms where water flows are removable and rinseable. The old model had some water channels and vacuum channels made through the unit which could build up with floor mud and lint and would need removed and cleaned. This model has a smarter design that simplifies and makes parts that could clog removable. Bravo on that design improvement. The second part that I really like is the improvements in navigation-- this unit is far smarter and even has some reverse intelligence to work its way back from things it is trying to clean around, navigate around, etc. It is far more deft on its feet, or wheels as it happens to be.
I also get the perception that this unit uses a lot less water than the previous unit, while doing the same quality job of cleaning, and with a far higher speed RPM brush. The water bin seems to hold a lot less water, but doesn't seem to run out before the cleaning job is done. In the end I'd say this is good. The old model could really slop a lot of water on the floor, and for those of us that have a traditional wood floor, it would absorb a lot of that water and change the way the floor looked. I experienced much last of this issue with this model.
This model is a definite move forward from my previous model, and faced with the choice I would certainly choose this one. While it moved forward dramatically in many ways, it moved back in a couple, at least in the ways that I use the unit.
As I use it more I will update the review if my experience or conclusions change. If you have any particular questions please feel free to ask them in the comments. I will do my best to respond to you ASAP, even if I don't have the answer right away.
So three months after the software patch, the unit stopped putting down water. Again.
We were asked to do another software patch. It didn't work this time. So we were sent a new part to fix it. That didn't work. Finally, after three weeks of back and forth, we were able to figure out a work around to get the unit working. Basically the solution was to pull out parts while charging. Once the unit was fully charged, we were to put the various parts, e.g. water reservoir, solution, and sweeping blade, back in to the unit.
This procedure worked for six more months. And now the unit has stopped working again.
iRobot is now telling me that the unit now needs to be replaced, but is out of warranty now. The cost of replacing just the core body? No battery, tank, blades, etc? $399. The unit should have been replaced when it started having issues. It wasn't. We were given band-aids until we were out of warranty.
I have bought four other Roomba units in the past, so I'm a fan of the product concepts. The Scooba is a no go for me, and so is iRobot.
