Users report this product is great for periodic maintenance, but does not completely replace mopping all together.
Performance: The iRobot Braava uses disposable or microfiber cleaning cloths to pick up dirt, hair, and dust from all your hard surface floors. All you have to do is attach a cloth and press a button - Braava takes it from there. Braava has two cleaning modes - sweep and mop. In sweep mode, Braava dry mops your floor by moving in a straight lines using dry cleaning cloths. In mop mode, Braava uses a special back-and-forth mopping action to lift surface dirt and grime from floors, keeping cloths damp by dispensing liquid throughout a special cleaning reservoir. Braava is compatible with drugstore brands, such as Swiffer, so you will have no trouble finding cleaning cloths for your Braava. As an added bonus, Braava is very quiet, allowing you to simply go about your day as normal - no interruptions.
Cost: At $254.99, the Braava is actually one of the least expensive products on our list! However, don't forget to factor in the cost of disposable cleaning cloths, unless you opt for reusable microfiber cleaning cloths.
Terrain Handling: The new iRobot Braava can handle multiple terrains including tile, vinyl, hardwood, and laminate. As Braava cleans it builds a map of the area, including walls, obstacles and drop-offs, in order to avoid them in the future. Braava also uses advanced technology to track where it's been and where it needs to go, so you'll never have the problem of Braava getting stuck in one location or missing a spot.
Battery Life: iRobot Braava comes with a convenient, one-stop charging station and can charge itself in as little as two hours. Additionally, it has enough battery power per charge to mop your entire floor in a single pass.
Maintenance: The only maintenance Braava requires is changing cleaning cloths in between cleanings. The cloths are easily inserted and held in place magnetically. When Braava has finished the job and returned to its station simply remove and through away the dirty pad.
