Are you left with frequent back pains after mopping the floor? Have you ever wanted to assign this task to someone else? If so, you’re in luck, because today we have the 7 Best Mopping Robots of 2017. First of all, let me get this straight. Mopping robots are mostly meant for regular maintenance mopping and not for extreme scrubbing and cleaning. These handy little devices do a great job for regular maintenance and doing so, in the long run, will be enough for your floors. You can go for a traditional mop now and the mopping robots will do a great job of assisting you.
Smart SoftBase Robotic Mop Sweeper
For less than $40, it is hard to find a mopping robot. This is the cheapest of the lot and there is nothing else that comes for less than $100. But don’t be skeptical about its performance. You get what you pay for. This robotic mopper has two modes of operation – one that lasts for 30 minutes and another one that lasts for 90 minutes. It is also extremely silent and the cleaning cloth that comes under the mopper is very easy to replace. For someone who wants to try out robotic moppers, this would be the perfect one to start with. What’s more, it can run off of rechargeable batteries, which I think is just amazing.
ECOVACS Robotic Vacuum Cleaner
Like I mentioned earlier, there is only one robotic mopper that comes under $100. The ECOVACS robotic vacuum cleaner doubles up as a mopping robot and comes with a price tag of around $160. It is round in shape and works on infrared sensors that allow it to scan the room properly. There are different modes for vacuuming which includes auto, spot, and edge. Best thing is that you can combine vacuuming and mopping together to clean at one go.
Haier Robot Vacuum Cleaner Floor Cleaner
Haier is world famous for a lot of their home appliances which includes air conditioners, refrigerators and more. There is no doubt that their mopping robots would be good too. The thing that sets apart the Haier robotic mopper from the others is the looks and build quality. The round shape and silver color goes really well along with the center portion which houses the display. There are five cleaning modes – auto, spot, edge, scheduling, and plan. It takes things to the next level and you can vacuum, sweep and wet mop in one single step.
The ROLLIBOT BL618 takes things even further. If you thought you cannot do more than vacuuming, sweeping and wet mopping, you were wrong. BL618 comes with one cleaning mode less than the Haier robotic mopper, but compensates with an additional feature. Apart from vacuuming, steaming and wet mopping, the ROLLIBOT BL618 also performs UV sterilization. The 10 sensors present on it allow every kind of terrain to be cleaned with ease.
Dibea D900 looks spectacular compared to all the other mopping robots. It looks more like a hovercraft than a robotic mopper. While most manufacturers are going for round-shaped moppers, Dibea went ahead with a D-shaped mopper. The color combination is not very impressive in my opinion, but that comes down to a matter of personal choices. Coming to its performance, it has 4 cleaning modes and the small height ensures that it will go under any furniture with ease. The 2-in-1 wet and dry mopping use nanofiber mops for the best possible cleaning that you can get from a mopping robot.
ETENTUOS Robot a SMART
The ETENTUOS Robot a SMART has features very similar to the D900 from Dibea. It has an array of infrared sensors that allows it to track furniture and stairs. There are four working modes to choose from and a microfiber mopping cloth that cleans everything it possibly can. While operating, it produces sound less than 55dB which is extremely quiet. One of the best things about this mopping robot is that it will work for around 2 hours with a single charge and also automatically docks and recharges. With a 3 year warranty, there is nothing much you can ask for from a robotic mopper.
iRobot Braava 380t Mopping Robot
Perhaps the best mopping robot as well as the most expensive on this list. The Braava 380t from iRobot is a beast when it comes to mopping. It has two working modes – dry sweeping and damp mopping. The Northstar Navigation works sort of like a GPS and cleans each and every spot in your house. Braava also returns to its initial spot after cleaning which makes it extremely easy to find. At just 3.1-inches in height, it will fit under most furniture. The Turbo Charge Cradle that comes along with it can be used to charge the Braava in just about 2 hours.
