Some people genuinely enjoy cleaning, but if you're not one of those people, the best mopping robots exist to make it 100 percent possible to kick that irksome chore to the curb. Why drag around a mop and a soapy-water-filled bucket if you don't have to?
Robot mop technology just keeps improving, getting more innovative and reliable each year. If you still have memories of robotic cleaners from a few years back — the ones that sort of cleaned (but not thoroughly) — it's time to give these modern day helpers another chance.
Many of today's robotic mops are designed to deliver damp mopping that's safe for all floor types, from tile and vinyl to hardwood. Some deliver a full-on jet stream, while others rely solely on microfiber cloths and the small, steady application of water from an internal water tank. Most of them also perform some light sweeping like the best dust mops to get rid of minor debris. And yes, advanced hybrids that double as vacuum for pet hair are also a thing. Just let the robots handle it all, why don't you!
Depending on your budget, the size of your home, and the features you need, here are my picks for the three top robot mops worth considering.
