Robot mops take on the task of keeping your hard floors clean for you. They also are designed to keep track of where they've been, the surface they still need to cover, and they can clean under various types of furniture. While the floor-mopping robot is cleaning wood, tile or other hard flooring, it frees you up to tackle other household tasks, or you can leave the house for some family fun.
The main differences between a robotic mop and robot vacuum is that a vacuum cleans both carpeted and hard floors. Some people have both so hard floors and carpets can get cleaned simultaneously. Additionally, while robot vacuums can clean hard floors, several models of robot mops are capable of dry sweeping floors and they can serve as a damp mop.
If you’re considering a cleaner specifically designed for hard floors, you might be looking at steam mops and wondering how it’s different than a robotic mop. A steam mop works by heating water and turning it into steam to remove stains and sanitize floors.
People prefer robot mops because steam mops don’t offer cord-free convenience and you need to wait for them to heat up. Unlike a robot mop's ability to keep floors clean with a click of a button, with a steam mop, you have to push it around and handle the household task of keeping your hard floors clean.
Gifting a Floor-Mopping Robot
Being a cleaning partner, robot mops can be great gifts for new parents with hectic lives. The floor-mopping robot can step in during moments when parents are feeding their newborn in a high chair and the baby spills food on themselves and onto the floor. Instead of having to pick up two messes, they can get the baby into clean clothes while the robot mop tackles the floor.
Being a convenient addition to any home, automatic mops also make for a great housewarming gift idea. Life can get busy for all of us and, during these times, who couldn’t use a helping hand with this important household task?
