Why We Picked It
All the other Roombas on this list are built for vacuuming, not washing hard floors. For that, you need to look to iRobot’s sibling Braava line of smart mops. For its part, the Braava Jet m6 robot mop can both sweep and mop hardwood, tile, and other non-carpet floors. It can’t vacuum, but it’s effective at getting your hard floors clean and shiny.
Who It’s For
If you hate dealing with a mop and bucket (or even one of those wet-pad Swiffers), the Braava Jet m6 should be on your radar. It cleans, sweeps, and scrubs many hard floor types in a way that robot vacuums simply can’t. You still have to put some of your own elbow grease into cleaning tough stains, but this device can save you time and sanity in the long run.
