Be realistic about mop effectiveness
Reviewed in Australia on 14 March 2021
Used only on hardwood floors which it does a good job of, but in terms of the mopping you need to be realistic. This mop only gives the surface a light wipe after vacuum, and strangely is unpredictability variable in terms of effectiveness.
Firstly to the general effectiveness as a mop please refer to the photo. The picture is of a partially wetted paper towel wiped over a 1m x 1m area of floor, that normally receives average household traffic, shortly after the S6 max V did its combined vacuum and mop cycle. We had carefully mopped with a traditional mop less than 10 days earlier. The amount of dirt remaining after the Roborock is astonishing.
Then there's variability issue. We've observed an apparent correlation between the amount of soiling accumulated on the cleaning cloth and the consumption of water in the tank. When there's lots of dirt on the cloth the water is all consumed. Without a wipe with a paper towel you couldn't see the difference between mop effectiveness.
The robots functions are wonderfully advanced and it seems quite smart. You just have to be realistic that this device doesn't come close to replacing a regular mop. It's just a device to send around before friends arrive for dinner.
