The 5 Best Robotic Mops

By Andrea Cannon on 15 July 2016 1 comment

Neat freaks, rejoice! There’s now an even easier, more efficient way to clean your floors with no effort or elbow grease involved. You can simply turn on a robotic mop and let it do all the dirty work for you. They can clean even those hard to reach places that you would normally leave behind. They can provide a better clean with less effort, saving you precious time every week. Some bots are even programmable so you can schedule a weekly cleaning.

What Is a Robotic Mop?

A robotic mop is a robotic floor cleaner that can strip away dust, dirt, smudges, and grime, so your floors look and feel cleaner. Each robot is different, but they typically use water or a mild cleaning solution to thoroughly mop your hard floor surfaces. It can easily glide through any room, no matter the size, for hassle-free cleaning whenever you please.

iRobot Braava Floor Mopping Robot

The iRobot Braava 380t Floor Mopping Robot is the higher-end model of the popular Mint-bots. If you’ve tried the original Mint Plus Automatic Floor Cleaner, you’ll love this new model even more.

The Pro-Clean System has a special Reservoir Cleaning Pad, which dispenses liquid throughout the cleaning process to keep the mop damp at all times.

It utilizes NorthStar Navigation technology to map walls, avoid obstacles and drop-offs, and track where it has cleaned and where it still needs to go. It has a front rubber bumper to prevent it from running into furniture and walls. It is quiet, efficient, and effective enough for large spaces and multiple rooms. It will also return to the charging station on its own and quickly recharges in only two hours.

The reusable microfiber cleaning cloths can be used hundreds of times, or you can choose to use dry or damp disposable cleaning cloths, such as the Swiffer cloths. It also offers both sweeping and mopping capabilities for one reasonable price, offering a great deal. It has outstanding online reviews and is recommended by publications like PC Mag.
