iRobot Vacuum and Mop Review

In contrast to some robot vacuums this one isn’t afraid of taking on the stairs. But, just like all vacuums and mops it could get blocked by stray tennis shoes ribbons, beads, play jewelry, yarn, or other objects that are loose.

The iRobot Home App allows you to label rooms, and even create zones that are not allowed to enter. It also lets you keep track of the progress of your mops as well as battery condition.

iRobot Combo j7+

The Combo J7+ is part of the robot vacuum and mop lineup that combines the robot cleaner’s smart mapping capabilities along with its ability to handle spills. It is equipped with the same acoustic sensors onboard and iAdapt 2.0 navigation that are used in other Roomba options and maps your home seven times faster than previous models. It also lets you set Keep Out Zones (for rooms which the robot should not enter) and Clean Zones (for rooms that it must be able to clean).

The robotic arm is the most significant feature of the J7. It keeps the mop pad hidden when not in use, and lowers it when carpeting or hard flooring. The concept is to prevent spraying water on the rug and the Combo j7+ does very well in my testing. The robot was not able to walk across the rug, even though I moved it around several times.

The arm comes with a 240mL tank which can be easily removed and refilled. This makes it much easier to use as opposed to the mop pads that are found on many other 2-in-1 robotic arm. It also utilizes the iRobot’s PrevisionVision obstacle avoidance technology which is more sophisticated than some systems of this type.

iRobot Combo i5

It is designed to do mopping and vacuuming in one machine This is an excellent option for those who are multitaskers. The vacuuming process is performed by a special bin that can hold up 60 days’ worth of debris and iRobot claims reduces the amount of dust re-released into the air during the process. The i5+ is equipped with dual multi-surface rubber brushes as well as Power-Lifting suction to take care of dust and dirt as well as pet hair and staining. When it’s time to mop, simply switch in the Mopping Bin and a compatible cleaning solution.

The i5+ runs iRobot OS and is smarter as you use it. It learns your floorplan, creating a Smart Map that remembers room names and your specific cleaning preferences. The iRobot App allows you to create a schedule or instruct the robot to clean a certain room.

iRobot has built in the ability to recognize household clutter, including cords, shoes, toys and bags. It will then automatically stop and return to the docking station, allowing it time to recharge and complete the cleaning task later. It is voice-compatible with Amazon Alexa and Apple Siri, and understands approximately 600 voice commands. This is more than any other 2-in-1 dreame robot vacuum.

It is able to vacuum the carpet and then wipe it clean with its microfiber cloths. This ensures that all surfaces are clean. It is equipped with a full set of sensors and navigation capabilities which help it stay clear of obstacles such as furniture and cords.

It also comes with an upgraded battery that will last longer as well as a self-emptying mode that reduces the frequency of emptying the bin.
