‘Wet Mode’ is OK for small rooms and 'Damp Mode' works well on larger areas, especially timber floor
Wet mode :
When moping a tiled area of 5 sqm in ‘Wet Mode’ (31 mins) it left streak marks / smudges. Moping the same area in ‘Damp Mode’ does not leave streak marks / smudges (5 sqm in ‘damp mode’ took 25 mins). In and around the grout groves, both methods leave some dirt behind. It appears that once the pad is very wet, it just pushes the dirty water around and it leaves streak marks/smudges.
In my opinion ‘Wet Mode’ works well on small rooms less than 5 sqm, like the Bathroom or Laundry but for larger areas it starts leaving streak marks .../ smudges. Damp mode : When moping the timber floor in my kitchen (12 sqm) in ‘Damp Mode’, it appears to clean the area quite well and it does not appear to leave any streak marks / smudges. The pad is very dirty after doing 12 sqm, so I change the pad before doing another area. I also refill the water tank. Other: The reusable pads are better value than the disposable.
Questions & Answers
Can I use the Braava Jet 240 mop on an 'engineered' timber floorboards? Thanks.
I have baltic wood floor boards and it works great I also use it in the outside area which is rough tiles and it works. I would think it would be fine but i havent actually tried it on engineered floorboards but it is very versatile. I love it havent mopped in years
Hi Lisa, the Braava range of mops is suitable for most types of hard flooring including floorboards and tiles, however we recommend confirming with your flooring manufacturer directly for care instruction if you have concerns about suitability. Kind regards, iRobot
I have a 3 BR house with open living, dining & kitchen and 2 bathrooms plus separate toilet. All rooms other than the 2 bathrooms have vinyl plank floors - total 100m2. The 2 tiled Bathroom floors - 8-9 m2.
What product(s) would you recommend to keep floors clean please.
Good Morning John
This is something better discussed over the phone (1300 727 421) as we would need a few more questions answered to better recommend which iRobot Roomba and Braava would be suitable.
Kind regards iRobot
Hi, why was the iRobot Scooba® 450 Floor Scrubbing Robot discontinued? Is a new model coming out soon? I have never used one but it sounds great!
I am not a 100% sure of the exact reason the Scooba was discontinued as this happen prior to our company taking on the brand in 2016.
iRobot have since launch the Braava 380T and Braava 240 as the replacements, however these are for mopping and sweeping only. Please visit our website www.irobot,com for more information.
Kind regards iRobot
