It’s almost the weekend, which means that a lot of you are getting ready to do some much needed cleaning. Woo-hoo! Sounds like a great weekend, right?
Well, if you had a little help during the week, weekend chores probably wouldn’t seem like, well… such a chore. So you might want to take a peek at iRobot’s new Scooba 390 Floor Washing Robot.
The latest in iRobot’s line is designed for larger rooms, boasting 30 percent longer battery life and a four-stage cleaning process. In other words, it has at least three more stages than you probably have! The Scooba 390 preps, washes, scrubs and squeegees the floor, all to get rid of up to 450 square feet of dirt and bacteria. No sweeping is required.
Like all iRobot products, the Scooba 390 uses iAdapt Responsive Cleaning technology and Virtual Wall barriers to guide the device through the nooks and crannies of your room, all without getting hung up in those same tight spaces.
While the Scooba 390 makes its big debut in the U.S., iRobot will also introduce the Scooba 230 to other countries. The company’s smallest robotic creation should start popping up at select retailers in EMEA and Latin America starting in April, with the UK getting the device this summer.
The Scooba 390 is currently selling with an MSRP of $499.99. You can also snag the smaller Scooba 230 for $299.99.
