I wanted to reach out to this community to ask about robo vac/mops before I purchase. I really trust the folks here and I’m not sure which way to go. I’d love for the unit(s) purchased to work with my ST hub, if possible.
We live in an 850sf apartment and deal with some health issues so we need a robo vac. We’ve had a few different models in the past from an older Roomba to a Neato (which was a disappointment all around). So, I’m looking for something that not get stuck all the time, have virtual barriers/no-go lines, and hopefully is quiet enough that it’s not incredibly annoying to run while we’re here (which is most of the time, especially during this unusual CV19 situation). I’m not expecting full out carpet deep cleaning but want something that will get all the dust, crumbs, and pet hair.
I also want to have mopping functionality and I feel like it’s something we’ll use often. What I’m not sure about is which way to go. Something like the Roborock S6 MaxV with vac/mop and some advanced mapping/camera features or going for a lower range vac like maybe the Roborock S4 (or a similar one by Eufy, Shark or ?) and getting a separate mopping setup like the Braava (maybe the M6?). Has anyone used any of these and which would you recommend and why? My other concern is the dust bin size of all of these. I’m not sure I have the space for a self emptying option like what Roomba has in the high end models or even the Shark self-empty option but on our Neato, which admittedly has a fairly large dustbin, we are emptying a lot (we have two dogs that even though the are both low/non shed, still do some hair shedding, etc).
I’d love to hear any thoughts and experience that have. Thanks so much in advance!
