Is robot vacuum + mop worth it or am i better off with vacuum only. I have a vacuum only that I love. I don't have need for mop as I only have kitchen and bathroom without carpet. But I am looking to gift a robot to my mom to save time. Half of her house is carpet & other is mixture of different floor.

  • A vacuum plus mop will be useful but I worry the vacuum strength will be comprised because its 2 for 1 vs. just vacuum only.
  • Based on review the mop is more like wet cloth dragged around which would be fine for a person like me but my mom being older generation might hate it.

Are you trying to tell us your mother doesn't know what a mop is, or how to use it? I bet she's got two or three of them in the closet right now!


Personally I like to use a vacuum cleaner on carpet; a broom and dust mop on wood floors, and a broom and wet mop on kitchen and bathroom floors.


I would think your mother would like a robot vac for the carpet area.

I am debating between getting a vacuum robot only or getting those robot that has vacuum and mop feature

Based on review it sounded like the mop skill of robot is not perfect yet & might not be worth while.

I have a Eufy robovac and I liked it so well I did some research on getting a mop/vac to go with it. After reading a lot of lukewarm reviews I decided the dual-function robot wasn't worth the price.

Then I discovered that iRobot makes a robot mop -- no vacuum. The one I bought is called the Braava Jet 240. You can buy re-usable pads instead of the disposables that come with it. It does about as good a job as wet Swiffer pads. I'm 74 and it is fine for me.

If I were to make the decision before I owned either of them, I'd still buy the two instead of a combo. Eufys are not as expensive as iRobot and others. I spent about as much for both machines as I would have for one of the more advanced robot vac/mop machines.

Thanks, that is the conclusion I came to that buying 2 is better than combo. For now I am giving the vac only. but i will keep an eye on the Jet 240 for when it goes on sale. the combination of both should save her lot of time and energy.
