iRobot Braava Jet m6 Robot Mop Review explores the features, pros, and cons, helping you decide if this robotic mop is for you. If you’re like me, one of the household chores I would rather not do is mopping the floors. My home is all laminate/hardwood flooring, which means I have to mop the whole house. And though I have a small home, and it didn’t really take me that long to mop, I would rather be doing something else.
I recently purchased an iRobot Braava. I couldn’t be happier. However, as everyone is different, I encourage you to take a look at this review to see if it’s something you may like.
Years ago, I had purchased the iRobot Braava 240, and there is a world of difference between that one and the m6. The 240, at the time, didn’t map, so it would just wander around my kitchen aimlessly. Oh, I didn’t mention the 240 is so much smaller, so it would take hours for it to complete just the kitchen. It was just easier for me to do it myself. I ended up selling it at a garage sale. So with my experience with robotic mops, I was leary in getting another one. But I’m so glad I did.

My experience with the iRobot m6 robot mop has been so much better than the first mop I had purchased. It comes with everything you need to get started—even a sample of the cleaning solution. You can use just plain water as well. That is what I did for the first mopping to try it out. Also, 2 single-use wet mopping pads and 2 single-use dry sweeping pads come with the purchase.
Everything was very easy to set up. I did have trouble connecting the cord, but after watching a youtube video, I realized I just had to push harder on it. The app uploaded and I was able to get that going in no time.
I saw streaks and some wheel marks with the first mopping, but I believe that occurred because of the dirt on the floor and only using water without cleaning solution. It has gotten much better in time.
What I Love About the iRobot Braava Mop
What I love about it is the mapping capability. After it created a map, I now have the option of choosing which rooms to clean. I find this handy when there is a particular room that needs mopping and not the whole house. Since it has the charge and resumes function, I can leave it on its own to finish the job. As I said earlier, I have a small house, about 1200 sf, so it can complete the job without refilling the tank and in about 2 hours. If you have a larger home, I’m assuming you will need to refill the tank, and the cleaning time will take longer.
The Keep-Out Zone I sat up, so I don’t have to remember to pick up the pet food and water. I set up the app to tell the iRobot mop to stay away from them and not fear spilled water all over the kitchen floor.
Overall, I am very pleased with my iRobot mop. It’s a little more expensive than the other ones available but compared to my last purchase with a less expensive model; there is a world of difference.
One Last Thing
Before purchasing my iRobot Braava m6 mop, I purchased the Shark IQ Robot Self Emptying Vaccum – which I also love. If you would like to read the review, click the button below. Another feature I like is being able to schedule a particular day and time. I find this comes in handy if I forget to start the mop; it will be sure to mop at least once a week. This feature is an option; you can run the mop whenever you like and don’t need to set up a schedule. The other feature I like is using the app. I can start the mopping process right from my phone – I need to be sure there is the pad and solution or water in the tank beforehand.
