Cleaning your floor with a standard floor buffer is one way of making them look fresh and clean but involves a bit of toil. Imagine sitting down watching television or playing with your children while a robot mop is busy cleaning or vacuuming your floors. It may seem like a scene from a science fiction movie but it has been a reality for some time now. A robot mop can be bought and let loose in your house to clean your house while you watch in amazement.
What Is A Robot Mop and Vacuum?
A robot mop is basically exactly what it says. A computerized, robotic mop that you fill with cleaning solution and let it go about its own devices cleaning your floors. Because of the robot mop’s compact size it can get into hard to reach areas such as corners, alongside skirting boards, around your bathroom and underneath furniture with ease.
A robot mop has various settings for sweeping, dry mopping or wet mopping while a combined robot vacuum and mop will also hoover up dust and other domestic rubbish. Once the robot mop has finished cleaning and picked up the debris from your floors you simply take it to the garbage disposal, push a button and empty it without ever having to get your hands dirty.
The wet mopping function is possibly the most advanced feature of a robot mop. High powered jets of cleaning fluid are sprayed onto your floor surfaces and then mopped clean and dry with special pads. Set boundaries for your robot mop via infra red virtual walls to keep it within your specified area and away from areas you don’t want it to venture into.
Robot Mop Technology.
With the advent of smartphones and other innovative technology, it is no longer necessary to even turn your robot mop on. You can fully control most robotic mops via remote control or an app on your smartphone. These appliance specific apps allow to not only control the robot mop but set schedules, check cleaning fluid and water levels and more. You can even control your robot vacuum and mop by speaking to it – full voice operation.
The built in computer has advanced anti collision technology that prevents it running into and damaging your furniture and ant drop sensors prevent the robot mop from falling down sets of stairs. When your robot mop has finished it’s work it will find its way back to its charging dock and turn itself off so as to be fully charged and ready for the next use.
