How well do Mint vacuums work?
If you’re looking for a way to lighten the housework load, it’s highly recommended that you get an automatic home-cleaning robot. A great choice would be any of the portable appliances designed and manufactured by iRobot (formerly Mint). These robotic floor cleaners by Mint can run for up to three hours which means they’ll get more space covered in shorter periods of time. However, it’s worth mentioning here that the term Mint vacuum is an inaccurate designation because Mint robots don’t make use of vacuum systems. Instead, they utilize a durable cleaning cloth which comes in two types – a dry sweeping cloth and a wet mopping cloth.
The biggest difference between Mint and other robotic cleaning devices lies in the way they clean the floor. Other robots use the standard vacuum system while Mint robots make use of cleaning cloths. To put the Mint robot to work, you simply put a wet or dry dust cloth on the robot’s removable cleaning pad, push the power button, and the Mint immediately gets to work. As to its movement, the Mint robot follows a back and forth pattern in straight lines. As we mentioned earlier, the robot can keep this routine for up to three hours provided that it has been fully charged.
The Mint device has several advantages compared to other robots. It’s much smaller which means it can cover and clean tighter spaces. It’s also installed with an intelligent navigation system which enables it to determine its location as well as mark the locations of obstacles like walls and furniture. With this memory, it knows what areas it has already finished cleaning. And of course, since the robot makes use of cleaning cloths, there are no bins or filters that you need to empty and wash. Simply take out the used cloth and replace it with another one.
The cleaning cloths that the Mint robot uses are re-washable and re-usable. Each cloth can be used for hundreds of hours as long as it’s washed and cleaned regularly. To protect the cloths from damage, wash it using warm water and don’t use bleach or fabric softener because these can degrade the fibers.
In conclusion, a Mint robot is a great investment because it has all the essential tools to efficiently clean a room. It has sweeping and mopping capabilities which means it can deal with dry dust or wet dirt. Finally, it makes very little noise and it automatically shuts off once it’s done cleaning the floor.
