bObsweep and iRobot both have different models in their robotic vacuum ranges.

We take an interest in them, because they have a capacity to help clean up low volumes of pet hair in the house as well as general mess of course.

We’ve put together a bObsweep vs iRobot Roomba Comparison Guide outlining the differences and similarities of their more popular or latest models.

You should be able to get a quick idea of which one is best for you based on your needs.

Let’s take a closer look at them!

bObsweep vs iRobot Roomba: Which To Get

Other things to consider are:

bObsweep

The pet models are upgraded models of the Standard model (they have all the Standard model + more)

You’d get the PetHair Plus if you want a more powerful upgraded version of the PetHair. Both are vacuum and mop 2 in 1 units.

The bObi Pet is slightly different to both those models having touchscreen buttons on the vacuum. It has a mini mop attachment.

The bObi Classic is similar to the bObi Pet.

We think both the PetHair Plus and bObsweep Pet present good value for money for pet owners – the PetHair Plus in particular.

The bOb Classic present OK value for a regular robotic vacuum.

iRobot Roomba

In terms of the Roombas, In general, the 800 and 900 series Roombas are 5x more powerful, and in some cases up to 10x more powerful than the 600 and 700 series Roombas.

The 690 is the most basic model of them all – being app connected, and able to be used on floor surfaces of all types.

The next step up is the 890 with up to 5x the suction power (of the 600 and 700 series’), and it also comes with a high efficiency filter and tangle free brush rollers.

The next step up is the 960 which has up to 15 minutes more run time (75 minutes max), ability to do multi room cleaning, ability to recharge itself automatically and resume cleaning, provides a clean map report of areas cleaned, and provides a level of custom cleaning preferences.

The 980 is the most advanced model with a run time of up to 120 minutes, up to 10x the suction power (of the 600 and 700 series’), and the ability to increase power on deep and plush carpet surfaces.

So, generally – power, run time, and additional cleaning settings and features are added as you progress through the models. The 960 and 980 also have slightly larger dust container capacities as well as newer technology.

 

However, there are also alternative option robo vacs to look at as well…

You can start by checking out the ILIFE robo vacs if you want an affordable option and alternative, and the Neato Connected Series (D3 through to D7) is good for a higher priced robo vac.

Make sure you are aware of the warranty conditions and return policy of all robo vacs before you buy to protect your investment – especially with the higher priced ones
