Keeping your kitchen floors clean and dry at all times is necessary to remove germs, stains, and odor from getting in the way of your cooking. It also prevents you from getting minor accidents since it can wipe away slippery oils and grease. A lovely kitchen makes cooking and eating so much fun for you and your family.
If you don’t have enough time to clean it yourself, there are amazing robot mops that can do it for you. Most of them work automatically to give you free time to do something else. A robot cleaner has many features that you can use to adjust to the type of surface and the cleaning performance that the floor needs. Of course, you have to let this bot run a few hours before using the kitchen to prevent yourself from tripping over it as you cook.
In this article, I will cover the features that make a good robot vacuum and mop for your kitchen. My source of information on this topic are tech review sites and user feedback.
What Makes a Good Robot Mop?
Hunting for the best robot mop online is not easy, especially if you don’t know what to look for. With so many models coming up almost every week, choosing the one that fits your needs becomes more complicated. To serve as your guide, here are some factors that you need to consider when looking for a robot cleaner.
Dedicated mop or hybrid?
In simple terms, a dedicated robot only has a mop, while a hybrid model has both a mop and vacuum. If you ask me which one is better, there is no fast rule to determine the answer to that question. However, I observe some trends for each type.
A dedicated bot usually sprays water directly on the floor to loosen up dirt and stains. A scrubbing pad or brush then agitates the dirt to make it easier to be wiped out. A dedicated mop type performs better than hybrids in removing deep-seated dirt.
Hybrid models tend to come with intelligent features for easier integration with mobile phones. They give the advantage of doing both mopping and vacuuming using a single device. However, their method of using a damp microfiber cloth isn’t the best for tough stains.
Navigation refers to how well the bot reads the floor’s layout and how it avoids obstructions to minimize stoppage. Look for a navigational system that allows you to set up a virtual barrier to restrict the bot from going to the area where it shouldn’t go.
Battery life is directly responsible for how many hours a device can work. If you’re living in a tiny apartment, a battery life of 60 minutes is good enough. You need a battery that will last for at least one and a half hours before it runs out of charge for a large home.
