If you have pets or kids, then you probably are amazed by how quickly the floors get dirty – especially in the kitchen!

That’s why I was really excited to learn about robot mops. With one of these awesome cleaning gadgets, you don’t even have to think about cleaning the floors because they take care of it for you. If you’re looking for a no fuss way to keep the floors mopped and clean, then you should definitely consider treating yourself to one of these.

What Is A Robotic Mop?
By now, you’ve probably heard of the Roomba robotic vacuum, right? Well, this is basically the same thing except that it is designed for mopping instead of vacuuming. Though each model varies slightly in how it works and what modes are available, you can count on one of these to clean your hard surface floors with water or a mild floor cleaner.
You can use one of these in any size room and it will do all the cleaning on its own. You can even schedule regular mopping of the floors with this home cleaning device.
Why You Need One Of These
As you might imagine, there are lots of benefits of owning one of these beyond just having clean floors. Obviously, one of the biggest benefits is that you don’t have to use any elbow grease for the cleaning. Since no effort is needed from you, that frees you up to do more important things like having more family time. It’s also super easy for robotic mops to clean those hard to reach areas of your home.
Obviously, people who live in homes that have more floor space that can be mopped get the most benefit from one of these. So, if you live in a house that has linoleum, tile, and laminate flooring then you will really like not having to clean on your own.
iRobot Braava 380t Mopping Robot Review
If you’re shopping for the best robotic mop for the money, then we highly recommend the iRobot Braava 380t model. Overall, it works incredibly well in any size home and leaves you with shiny, clean floors that required no hard work on your part.
A nice feature of the iRobot Braava 380t is that it has two cleaning modes:
- dry sweeping
- damp mopping
Personally, I find this is great for getting the cleanest possible floors. First, you should let it go around the house and sweep the floors clean, which is perfect if you have pets since it will clean up the pet hair before wetting the surface. Next, let it damp mop around the house after it has swept up all the dust, pet hair, and other debris. This two-part cleaning system is awesome and just like you would do on your own with a broom and Swiffer, but now you don’t have to expend all that energy!
This thing works even in large houses thanks to its Northstar Navigation, which works sort of like a GPS for inside the house. It bounces signals off the ceilings and walls so that it knows where it has already cleaned and where it hasn’t yet made it to. This ensures that every floor surface ends up getting cleaned for you. Pretty cool, huh?
The iRobot Braava 380t uses microfiber clothes to remove the dirt and grime from your floors. You can wash these, which means no expensive cloth replacement fees. That’s eco-friendly too! Or, if you still have some of those Swiffer clothes, it can use those as well.
I think you’ll find that this is a very quiet robotic mop that is very easy to use. And, it only takes around two hours for its battery to fully charge.
iRobot Braava Jet 240 Mopping Robot Review
If you’re on a tight budget and the 380t model above is out of your price range, then consider the iRobot Braava Jet 240 model. We think that it is the best cheap robotic mop on the market right now. It’s low price offers a good value while still delivering a quality cleaning gadget for the home.
With this one, you get three different cleaning modes:
- dry sweeping
- damp sweeping
- wet mopping
This model also works well in giving you the best possible cleaning from the gadget. We really like that it can tackle stains and spill with the vibrating cleaning head, which is perfect for those times when the kids spill something sticky and forget to tell you about it.
It gets all around the home thanks to its iAdapt 2.0 Navigation system, and it will never try to go on the stairs or onto the carpet or rugs.
One thing to note is that it is not as quiet as the 380t model due to the vibrating cleaning head.
Overall, I prefer the 380t model, but at a lower price, this model works well for the money.
