If you are looking for a robotic floor cleaner, then Evolution Robotics’ Mint 4200 is a great place to start. It is designed to clean hard surface floors, low pile carpets, and even some rugs. Since it is an automatic vacuum, you don’t need to monitor or supervise it. Just set it and forget it.
It functions by systematically cleaning the floor one line after the other before returning to its original starting position so that it doesn’t get lost. In addition, it thoroughly cleans the edges of carpets. It tracks the area it has cleaned to ensure no spots or stains are left behind, and when it is done, it switches itself off.
All you need to do is to attach the cleaning cloth to the cleaning pad, let it do its work, then remove the cloth. The machine uses a North Star navigation cube for efficient steering and guidance.
The Mint 4200 has a double functionality – dry mode for sweeping and wet mode for mopping. Whether your floor is tiled, laminated or made of hardwood, the machine will clean it with equal effectiveness.
The robot has controls that are very easy to use. You need to select either sweep or mop. Cleaning is especially hassle free because the robot has no bins or filters that need constant replacement or emptying.
When it is finished cleaning one room, it moves on to discover adjacent rooms, covering a total 800 square feet in the process. It also applies finishing touches on edges of your floors along walls.
- Picks up pet hair, dirt and dust.
- Collects deeper dirt using a unique back and forth movement.
- Its microfiber cloths can be rewashed and used many times over.
One disadvantage is that it’s charging port is located on its underside, meaning that you have to turn it upside down to charge it.
As it has no vacuum motor, the robot is very quiet and boasts 3 hours of battery life. It’s a great little gadget and fits well with its price. The compact design enables it access to small areas with little space. This makes it ideal for use in commercial premises as well as residential areas.
There are also many other great robotic vacuums with different features that you should look at before deciding which one to buy.
