PROS

Instead of a heavy dustbin, this model uses a cloth wipe to pick up dirt and debris. It's easy to clean off and saves time on maintenance.

CONS

No scheduled cleanup function.

OUR VERDICT

A wonderful choice for those with hard surface floors such as wood and tiles, this model won't scrape the hardwood planks with brushes as it uses a cloth wipe instead. Using smart navigation, this robot will get to dust and debris in the tiniest nooks, guaranteeing complete tidiness. A great choice for big non-carpeted homes.

iRobot Braava 390t

Adaptive Robomop for Tile and Hardwood

Automation is the new way of life with robotic appliances taking over every single task in your home. But not even the top of the line models can do everything for you like, for example, emptying out the dust container in your vacuum or robomop. That’s why we like the iRobot Braava 390t, which makes the one non-automated process simpler by using a cloth wipe to collect dirt instead. You can brush all dust off with a single shake or just rinse the cloth under tap water.

This model uses iAdapt 2.0 navigation to move around the house without bumping into walls, avoiding stairs and drops. Thanks to this smart trajectory building, the device dry cleans about 93 square metres and mops about 33 square metres on a single charge of 210/150 minutes. Much more efficient than going through the room with a wet rag by yourself, wouldn’t you say?

As the device uses a cloth to clean, it’s suited best for hard surfaces as getting dirt out of a carpet can be tough with no brush to really dig in between the bristles of the rug. Plop it down in your kitchen and your tiles will be squeaky clean without you lifting a finger.

Overall, if you want a truly smart robot and not just a glorified duster, the iRobot Braava 390t is exactly what you need. It’s going to keep all hard floors in your home tidy with the benefit of technology on its side.

iLife V5s Pro

High Coverage and Spotless Floors

When you think of a robocleaner, the image that comes to mind is likely of a round and short device quietly buzzing around your home, sucking up dirt and dust. And while not all models look like that, the ILIFE V5s Pro does boast a classic design in addition to its high-precision cleanups.

This floor washing robot has 4 main modes and you can leave everything up to the sensors by engaging the auto-clean option or schedule the robomop to do timed cleanups every day of the week instead. Either way, you won’t have to worry about this little guy abandoning his post or accidentally falling down into the basement as the anti-collision and cliff-detection sensors will keep the robot sliding around unimpeded.

The ILIFE V5s Pro will always provide efficient cleanups thanks to the 2 side brushes picking up dust and debris, including hair and fur that might cling to tiles and get stuck between wood panels. This makes it an equally viable model both for hard surfaces and carpeted floors. No device is flawless but the ILIFE V5s Pro does come close to that standard. Its one major disadvantage is that the robot seems to get lost on its way to the charging station sometimes. It doesn’t happen too often but don’t be surprised if you come upon the little guy buzzing quietly in the corner next to the dock and guide it to the station instead.

To sum up, the ILIFE V5s Pro is certainly one of the most impressive robomops in terms of cleaning power and efficiency, covering up to 200 square metres on a single charge. It picks up all kinds of dirt and debris and seems to be effective on all flooring types.

Deik MT-820

A Perfect Flatmate for Tidiness

Looking for an automatic robot floor cleaner to tidy up your flat but don’t want to overpay for a high-capacity model designed for two-story houses? Thankfully, the market is flooded with options and one of the best choices for you would be the Deik MT-820.

Despite being pretty small, this robomop has an XL 0.9 l dustbin, enough to collect dust all day long without filling up. That way you can use the robot regularly in short spurts and only empty the bin once a week, especially comfortable since those daily cleanups can be scheduled to occur automatically.

While this model only covers 50 square metres on a single charge, that should be more than enough to keep your flat tidy, especially if you take the time to choose the proper cleaning mode out of the 5 available. That might take some time since the manual isn’t very clear but it’s absolutely worth it if you want the robomop to clean specific spots only.

Another point that makes the Deik MT-820 perfect for use in flats is how silent it is. You’d have to strain to hear this little gizmo as it drifts around the room sucking up dust and mopping the floor with its 4 side brushes. And it won’t spook you by suddenly bumping into your leg thanks to the anti-collision infrared sensors.

So while the Deik MT-820 isn’t suitable for owners of big homes, it’s surely going to be an invaluable helper for those living in flats. The silent, efficient, and programmable robot will make your life easier and keep the floors immaculately tidy.

Eventer U6008B1

Precision Cleaning for the Biggest Spills

Want a smart robomop that won’t bother you while you’re busy in your home office or buzz around under your feet as you’re cooking dinner in the kitchen? Try out the Eventer U6008B1, the model that's armed with a virtual blocker that stops it from going to certain preset areas. You won’t have to use it to keep the device from sliding off into the basement or garden as it’s equipped with drop sensors but the blocker will definitely come in handy to keep the mop from going into the room where someone’s sleeping.

Choose between 4 cleaning modes, including edge tidying, spot and automatic cleanups. The spot cleaning is particularly useful if you set the Eventer U6008B1 loose in a big room and don’t want it to waste time riding around the space. Engage this function and the mop will seek out dirt and remove it without getting distracted. This may be a feature you return to a lot since the Eventer mop only covers 100 square metres on a single charge and it’s smart to make the most of that coverage area.

While it’s not the most heavy-duty robomop out there, the Eventer U6008B1 will be a good addition to a smart home, keeping your floors tidy without going over the limits you set for it. Its 4 brushes pick up even the tiniest debris and you won’t have to empty out the capacious dustbin too often, saving your time and effort.

Ecovacs DEEBOT SLIM2

Remote Cleanups for Maximum Efficiency

Need to wind down after a long day at work but can’t lie still when the room is in shambles? Don’t worry, you can ensure that your home is squeaky clean without getting up off the couch, just use the Ecovacs DEEBOT SLIM2.

This little router-looking robot can be controlled via a remote, a smartphone app, or left to its own devices by pressing an “Auto” button on its body. You could get your whole home pristinely tidy while sitting at the table drinking a cup of coffee.

The design of the Ecovacs DEEBOT is quite elegant as its side brushes sweep up all debris directly to the suction cup, sending it straight into the small dustbin. Inside the device, a filter works to make sure that no dirt is left behind and you can equip the gizmo with a cleaning cloth to wipe up the area in front of the mop.

One flaw in this unit’s programming is that it tends to get stuck on small doorsteps between rooms due to its sensitive anti-drop system. Of course, you can navigate it off the obstacle using the remote controls so it shouldn’t be that much of an issue.

In the end, while the Ecovacs DEEBOT SLIM2 only covers up to 100 square metres, it cleans every centimetre of that area thoroughly and the fully remote-controlled mop is sure to make your life easier.

What Is a Robot Mop?

Besides being a great time-saver that will keep your house pristine, a floor mopping robot also offers an unrivalled quality of cleaning that not even the most thorough homeowner can guarantee. It’s a simple yet elegant idea: a small circular robotic helper that rides around your home and sweeps up dirt and debris on hardwood floors, tiles, carpets, and more. You can program these little machines to spray the surface for cleaning, use brushes, and even set it up to mop up your home several days of the week without further prompting. Of course, they’re not all that different from the previous generations of robots such as the famous Roomba vacuums but they do offer a different kind of service.

If you’re already familiar with the quality offered by the robotic cleaners you probably have no hesitations about getting these wonder-moppers and neither should you! And if you’re not yet taking advantage of the iRobot Roomba robot vacuums, wait no longer and try them out. Plus, you should keep both your home and your yard neat, so don’t hesitate to get a robotic lawn mower to trim your lawn for you while you relax!
