How to clean roomba filter? If you want your robot vacuum to work at peak performance, then the best thing that you can do is give it frequent maintenance. From what I’ve observed, an amount of debris including dirt, hair, fur and dust usually takes a toll on my Roomba after cleaning cycles; if left like this for long periods of time will damage both battery life as well as whole system integrity. So how about we clean up our robots?

Roombas are great little helpers when it comes to keeping floors tidy but they need help too! As soon as one realizes there’s some issue with their Roomba such as reduced suction or decreased power overall – all powered by small removable filters – which have become clogged over time due to the amount of dust and dirt picked up along with pet hair thanks to Roomba’s awesome little brush.

How to clean roomba filter?

Remove the bin and open it:

Remove the bin from the robot by pushing down on it gently and then pulling away from the front bumper

Remote the filter:

Take off the filter cover of your Roomba by using either a flathead screwdriver or a fingernail along with some force if necessaClean the filter:

Use a wet wipe to clear away any debris build up on your filter, make sure to get in all cracks and grooves. You may also choose use compressed air, but I’d recommend not blowing too hard when cleaning this way due to possible complications when reassembling later.

Put it back together:

Once done reassemble parts in reverse order you took them apart. If you end up with any problems please consult your manual.

Roomba’s filter needs to be cleaned every two weeks (and eventually replaced after about six months). Once you clean it, it will breathe easy again! How often should you replace your Roomba’s filter ?

Usually the filters are good for about six months before needing replacement. Snapping them in and out of place is effortless so don’t be afraid to take these out frequently for cleaning purposes.


How often should you clean your Roomba’s filter?

Answer: You should clean your Roomba’s filter every 2 weeks or so, but sooner if there is a noticeable drop-off in suction power or velocity capabilities due to clogged debris build up over time, which is completely normal.

How often should you replace your Roomba’s filter?

Answer: Usually filters can go about six months before needing replacement, but that entirely depends on the amount of debris and dirt it picks up over that time span. So if you want to keep performance at top shape then I’d recommend replacing every 6 months, which is fine by me because after cleaning my Roomba went from “it’s kinda working” levels to “FULL POWER!” with a clean filter.

How to clean the rest of your roomba

Answer: If there’s still some problem going on even after a thorough cleaning session – such as a malfunction with buttons or wheels for example – most likely the problem is going to be hardware related. So in that case I would recommend checking your manual for a more in depth guide, or consult the iRobot website for possible solutions.

Do filters trap dust particles in the air when used on pets or allergies?

Answer: According to my research from other verified buyers, it’s safe to assume that Roomba’s filter traps airborne dust particles and allergens while cleaning rooms free of debris. Keep in mind though that these filters tend to clog up quickly if there is a lot of pet hair around the area being cleaned, so just remember to clean up often and it should extend your replacement cycle by several months at least.

Can it be reused when cleaning my Roomba?

Answer: Good question, but no. The filter should be replaced by a new one afterwards due to risk of contamination and possible injury for pets or humans if it’s not cleaned properly before use again.

Can I use other filters that are compatible with my iRobot vacuum cleaner in place of the factory supplied cartridge?

Answer: Yes you can, but you’ll need one more part (which is very affordable) called the ‘deck plate’ which needs to be snapped on top of your Roomba’s empty filter spot in order to make it work. If you’re still unsure about compatibility please check both manuals before purchasing one yourself! 🙂
