iRobot Braava jet 240 Robot Mop Review
An honest 3 Min. Review of the iRobot Braava Jet 240 Mop. I go over the pros and cons and give my personal thoughts on this mop and whether you should buy it. ——–
Today I’m going to be reviewing the iRobot Braava jet 240 Mop.
I’ve been using this little guy for about 2 weeks now and am going to share my thoughts on this wonderful little mopping robot. PS – I just want to say that I’ve purchased this mop with my own money and have no relationship to iRobot or this product.
Ok, let’s get into it.
First, the main reason I purchased this mopping robot was that I have a large, tiled kitchen floor with multiple pets. I have a bObsweep robotic vacuum which does an awesome job of sweeping the floor for me every day. (BTW – the best customer service I’ve ever received was from bobweep, can’t recommend their product enough)
That being said, I spend way too much time mopping the floor so I decided that this little guy (and I’m mean little, he’s only about 1ft by 1ft) could help me keep the floor clean on a daily basis.
The iRobot Braava comes with a charging station, a battery, 3 different cleaning pads (a wet mopping pad, damp sweeping and dry sweeping pads)
Just a quick side note. I purchased some re-washable mopping pads from Keepow and they are awesome! I highly recommend buying these.
One of the reasons I chose the iRobot Braava was because it has a water tank built into it. Most robot mops just have a damp cloth, but with my floor, were too dry to really do anything after a few passes.
The iRobot actually sprays the floor with water before it mops over it.
The robot will continue to clean your floor in a pattern and will slightly bump its way through the area. In addition, It does a really good job of cleaning around chairs and other obstacles
Filling the mop reservoir is super easy and holds a surprising amount of water.
Once you have the tank filled all you do is simply click in the cleaning pad you want and set it on the floor. A simple button press will turn it on and then another press of the button will send him on his way.
He will then spray some water on the floor and start a triple pass of cleaning. He will then continue to spray water every few passes to keep the pad wet.
Once he’s done – about an hour or so, he will return to the spot you started him in.
Some of the things I really like about the iRobot Bravva are:
-Super easy to use
-Re-washable cleaning pads
-Battery lasts a surprisingly long time and only takes about 2 hours to charge
Honestly, in terms of drawbacks, there are only a few. None of which really bothered me.
It does a good job of cleaning, but don’t expect the same result as if you took the time to mop the floor yourself.
There is no schedule cleaning. You have to start the mop yourself every time. Personally, I’ve had a few cleaning robots and the schedule thing is probably great for an office cleaning after hours, but in a home with pets, kids, etc. it’s better to make sure the floor is cleared of anything that could cause an issue.
My final verdict on the iRobot Braava is a very positive one.
I think it’s well worth the $169. Especially, if you have a large hardwood, tile, or stone area in your home. It does everything that it says it should do and does a good job of cleaning. If you are looking for a new robot mop I would recommend this little guy. He will have a spot in my home for as long as wants.
