Roborock S7

This model is truly effective when it comes to wet cleaning. This is made possible by the vibrations of its mop, which clean the floor thoroughly, unlike simple scrubbing systems. It also offers very good suction results on hard floors and carpets, even with pet hair. Carpet detection is the best we have seen during our tests, lifting the mop in time to avoid damage. We would also like to point out that the robot has a good 180 minutes of battery life and large tanks (470 ml for dust and 300 ml for water) that can be used at the same time. We found its application to be well organised and quite intuitive overall. Navigation was also good thanks to the LiDAR PreciSense. However, it was rather noisy.

Xiaomi 2S

With its good 150 minute battery life, laser navigation and 2200 Pa, this robot proves to be efficient at vacuuming rooms. In our tests, we found its application to be quite comprehensive, although its interface could be improved a bit. With 300 ml, the dust tank is not the largest, but it is still decent for the price. As for its 200 ml water tank, it allows you to wet the mop that will rub the surfaces as it passes. It does not allow for the most efficient cleaning, but at least it has the merit of existing and giving the floors a little freshness. In short, even if the functionalities and performance of this robot remain rather basic, it is the most complete and qualitative entry-level model that we tested.

 

Best high-end

Dreame L10 Ultra

This robot vacuum is particularly effective at cleaning surfaces with its rotating mops. It wets them when recharged before automatically resuming cleaning.

Dreame L10 Ultra

With its emptying and recharging station, this model is truly the best of the best. It has an incredible 210 minutes of battery life and a 350 ml dust tank. The reason it has no water tank is that it recharges its mops with water directly at its station while it cleans them. And in our tests we found this to be an effective, if somewhat noisy, system. The device has at least 2x the suction power of the cheaper models, which makes it very efficient. Of course, all the functions can be adjusted via its app. Its only negative point is that it takes hours to dry the mops and makes a slight noise during this time.

 

Mid-range alternative

Dreame D10 Plus

With its quality design, automatic emptying station, good suction performance and intuitive app, this robot offers a complete cleaning solution at a competitive price.

£ 399.00 on Amazon

Dreame D10 Plus

This robot vacuum is a very competitive mid-range solution that should meet the needs of most people. Despite its affordable price, it is equipped with an automatic dust emptying station so you only have to empty your bag once a month or so. Its suction performance is also good, even on carpet, thanks to its 4000 Pa. Its app is intuitive and very comprehensive, even allowing you to save multiple maps if you have different floors to clean. In our tests, we liked its intelligent navigation, which avoided most obstacles and never got the robot stuck. The only drawback of this model is its water cleaning system, which is a simple scrubbing system and not a vibrating or rotating system. So do not rely on it to actually wash your floors, but it will be able to freshen them up and clean up small stains.

How did we do the test?

In order to test the devices, we first took care to judge their material quality and practicality (access to the collectors and tanks and their size, ease of changing the mop, useful accessories provided…). Then, we evaluated the robots’ functionalities (delimiting areas via a map, suction settings, cleaning modes, programming, child safety…), as well as their application (intuitive, correct translation…).

After that, we moved on to specific tests: object detection, cleaning performance on different types of floors (with rice and salt), handling of small differences in level (door thresholds), testing of different modes and functionalities. We also measured their noise level with a sound level meter during use and when emptying if necessary. Finally, by using it on a daily basis, we judged their battery life and their recharging speed.

 

How to choose your robot vacuum mop? 

A true hybrid device: this robot integrates, as its name suggests, both vacuuming and floor cleaning functions, thanks to an integrated mop. Interesting for the daily maintenance of your home, it does not exempt a larger regular cleaning, but can already make your life easier and especially save you time and energy.

In order for you to make the best choice, we have compiled the essential features of the robot vacuum mop.

  • Battery life: this can vary from 1h30 to 2h30. This criterion must be in line with the size of the surface to be cleaned. The less time the robot takes to return to its charging station, the more effective it will be. The size of the tanks (dust and water) is thus also important. In general, the dust container is about one third the size of that of an upright vacuum (300 to 400 ml versus 1 L).

  • The navigation system: while basic robots generally move around “blindly” with random movements, more and more models operate on the basis of a recorded map, with boundaries defined by you. Some devices even offer to break down the space into zones, to memorise several rooms or even entire floors.
  • Functionalities: it can be interesting to have several cleaning modes. While many devices clean in a circular way from the centre of the room, others can clean the edges of rooms (skirting boards) or move in a zigzag pattern (more effective than a rotary motion for mopping). Programming is also very useful, to make the robot run at a regular time or to launch a delayed start. Finally, the latest models allow you to adapt the water flow to the type of floor, so as not to damage the most fragile surfaces.

  • Remote control: some robots are equipped with a remote control, which increases the comfort of use. Others can be connected to your smartphone and launched remotely via a dedicated application. Often, this app also allows you to see the route taken by the robot and to set programmes.
  • Height: a device that is too high will not be able to fit under certain pieces of furniture, even though these are the very areas where it is needed. It is therefore worth taking a look at this criterion to ensure that the device meets your needs.
  • Noise: although these devices are generally intended to operate in your absence or at night, it is best not to exceed 60 dB, the average noise level of a normal conversation.

The difficulty with these devices is obviously to be both efficient at vacuuming and at washing with water. If you do not need one of these two functions, it is best to go straight for a robot vacuum or a single-purpose robot mop.

 

Other models we recommend

Dreame D9 (£299.00 upon publication): An inexpensive alternative with a good app and smart navigation. With its good 150-minute battery life, this robot is effective at vacuuming your rooms thanks to the presence of a well-working laser. In our tests, we found the app to be comprehensive for the price. It is possible to change the language, but this setting is not the easiest to access in the app. At 300ml, the dust tank is not the largest, but it is still decent. As for its 200 ml water tank, it allows you to wet your mop which will rub the surfaces as it passes. It is not the most efficient way of cleaning, but it does have the merit of existing and giving the floors a fresh look.

Ultenic T10 (£454.86 upon publication): A good robot despite some shortcomings. This robot is quite convincing in its price range, thanks to an application that is easy to use, an average suction performance and a battery life that we evaluate as being very good. All it needs is a little more precision in its navigation and map management for us to be fully satisfied.

Dreame L10s Pro (£453.12 upon publication): A efficient robot vacuum mop. This model is an excellent option if cleaning functionality is important to you. It has two rotating mops that allow it to clean much more efficiently than models with a simple scrubbing system. In addition, it has a huge suction power of 5300 Pa and a very complete application. Being a model in the “s” range of Dreame’s robot vacuums, it is also equipped with an AI that helps it avoid obstacles and optimise its navigation. In fact, in our tests, we noticed that it navigated particularly well, and it rarely got stuck.

 

Other models we tested

Lefant M210 (£239.99 upon publication): This model is very compact and has the advantage of fitting everywhere. However, this results in a smaller suction area. In addition, the application is very poorly designed and not at all intuitive.

Eufy 11s (£169.99 upon publication): This ultra-basic entry-level model has the advantage of being fairly durable and having easily replaceable parts. However, the lack of an application makes it much less practical to use.

Ultenic D5s Pro (£180.75 upon publication): This robot has a very large 500 ml dust tank. It also has a 200ml water tank to wet the mop that scrubs the floor behind it. While its application is smooth, its map does not seem to stay in memory. During our tests, we also found its navigation to be rather random.

Eufy G30 (£299.99 upon publication): At this price level, the lack of a laser is disappointing. As a result, navigation is not good and the robot bumps into many obstacles. In addition, the front brush came off several times during our tests while vacuuming.

Trifo Lucy (£399.99 upon publication): During our tests, its poor navigation caused it to get stuck many times. On top of that, the application is incomplete, not very intuitive, and it is impossible to access the map when the robot is disconnected.

Roidmi Eve Plus (£409.99 upon publication): It is a good choice for large spaces and lively homes, thanks to its automatic emptying station. Nevertheless, we regret its inconvenient dust tank, its perfectible application and its very high noise level during emptying.

Neato D10 (£560.10 upon publication): During our tests, we were unable to connect it to a Wi-Fi network, as the robot is only compatible with certain Wi-Fi frequencies. We found this unacceptable for a device at this price.

Ecovacs N8 Pro Plus (£616.10 upon publication): This model with automatic dust emptying station is overall very good, with its qualitative design and high performance. Its application can be improved, however, and there are competing models with the same functionalities at a more competitive price.

Eufy Robovac LR30 Hybrid+ (£549.99 upon publication): Overall, this model is correct, but lacks a little something to be good: the automatic emptying at its station is very noisy, the navigation is not perfect, no full tank detection is provided… Too bad.

Dreame L10s Ultra (£1133.19 upon publication): This robot vacuum mop with automatic dust and water emptying is extremely comprehensive and efficient. However, its slightly cheaper version, the L10 Ultra, offers better value for money in our opinion as it has the same benefits, just sacrificing the AI improved navigation.

Dreame Bot Z10 Pro: Equipped with an automatic emptying station for dust, this robot is very good, but a little outdated, and has been replaced by the D10 Plus in Dreame’s range.
