Owning a gadget that can automatically vacuum and mop your home is arguably one of the best ways to cut down on your weekly list of chores. Gone are the days of breaking out your mop and constantly emptying your dustbin – with robot vacuum-mop combos, much of your cleaning routine can be automated.
These useful little drones might all share a similar, circular design, but their cleaning prowess can vary greatly. And unless you know what you’re looking for, it’s difficult to figure out which one is better suited for your home than others. Thankfully, there are plenty of great options available in today's market. Here’s a look at the best robot vacuum mop combos of 2023, including picks for all budgets and home-cleaning needs.
- Excellent battery life
- Plenty of strength settings
- Impressive navigation
- Very expensive cleaner
- Not the best for pet hair
The Roborock S7+ is our favorite because of its stellar navigation. It uses LiDAR sensor technology to map out your floors (even in multi-level homes) and sticks to a tight but effective cleaning path when in use. The robot vacuum mop also comes with many features that will impress even veteran robot cleaner consumers. For example, you can adjust the strength of the mopping (along with vacuum suction strength) through the app. You can also choose which rooms to use a specific vacuum strength or mop access so that after the first few cleans, you can press one button to have the S7+ clean your floors the way you want.
To be fair, though, the Roborock is nearly $1,000, making it one of the most expensive cleaners on the list. Although it does come with an auto-cleaning dock, so you don't have to clean the robot itself after each clean. It also lasts three hours on a single charge, which is perfect for those bigger homes where you'll want to spend that kind of money.
iLife V5s Pro
- Low-profile design
- Long battery life
- No auto-empty dock
- Manually switch cleaning tanks
Every good product list has to have a budget option, and ours is the iLife V5s Pro 2. Something to note about the V5s Pro 2 is its super slim design, so it will clear the bottom of some low-rise furniture with ease.
For this cleaner, you have to change out the tank when switching from vacuuming to mopping and vice versa. However, it still has the smarts for each function to provide an excellent cleaning job.
Besides manually switching tanks when changing cleaning modes, the V5s Pro 2 doesn't have an auto-empty dock, which may be its greatest tragedy. If you're up to doing some manual labor when cleaning your home, then the iLife smart robot is for you. For under $200, it's good for your wallet too.
Shark AI VacMop Robot
Best for Smaller Homes
- Works with smart assistant
- Auto switches mop and vacuum with different floor types
- Multiple preset modes
- Low battery life
- Have to switch cleaning tanks
Even smaller homes need to be able to take advantage of automated smart home products, which is where the Shark AI VacMop Robot comes in. To have an all-in-one device that doesn't have too many features is a bit of a feat because you'll still want it to be efficient, just not overkill.
The Shark VacMop has multiple preset modes that you can use to switch from vacuuming, sonic mopping, and a deep clean mode. These modes are assisted with an AI laser navigation to ensure it isn't just bouncing off the walls or running into objects.
With a lower price point and runtime, this smart robot cleaner is perfect for small apartment dwellers. What's even better is that the Shark AI VacMop robot is routinely available online.
Ecovacs Deebot X1 Omni
Best for Pet Owners
- Auto-emptying and auto-washing base
- Security camera built in to top sensor zone
- Impressive suction for handling pet hair
- Very large base
- Mopping not the best
The Ecovacs Deebot X1 Omni is an excellent combo robot vacuum and mop. One of the main features of this smart cleaner is that its top LiDAR sensor doubles as a security camera, so you can watch it work and watch your pet interact with it remotely. We chose it, though, for its suction strength to help any of our readers with a furry partner.
While the price would have you think this is the best all-in-one cleaner available, money isn't everything. Unfortunately, the auto-emptying and auto-washing base is pretty large. Ecovacs' Deebot X1 Omni is perfect for any pet owner, thanks to the camera, battery life, and suction strength.
Eufy RoboVac L70 Hybrid
- Great value
- Two cleaning functions in one robot
- Efficient cleaning with laser guidance
- Mopping is smooth on hardwoods
- Can still get tangled by wires easily
- Emptying dust bin is inconvenient
Eufy has packed some excellent technology into this hybrid bot, with features reminiscent of what Roombas can do. That includes laser navigation with real-time mapping so the robot vacuum can quickly chart a path and deal with any changes. The app also allows you to set boundaries and targets for more in-depth operation (as well as avoiding things like delicate rugs in the middle of wood floors).
The vacuum comes with drop-sensing and anti-collision sensors as well, plus strong suction with around a 2.5-hour runtime before needing a recharge. For mopping, you’ll get a module to hold cleaner and a washable cloth (there’s also a waterproof pad for collecting dust). It has several different power levels depending on the hard surface that you’re cleaning, too. There’s even Alexa support for giving voice commands!
Roomba Combo j7+ Robot Vacuum and Mop
Best for fully automated cleanings
- Mop and vacuum without manual input
- Sleek design
- Impressive suction and mopping skills
Yes – the Roomba Combo j7+ is ridiculously expensive. But if you’re looking to truly automate your vacuuming and mopping routines, it doesn’t get much better than this. Not only does the Combo j7+ give you the standard room navigation software and upscale designs synonymous with Roomba, but this innovative robot can actually go from mopping to vacuuming without any manual input. Thanks to a mophead that stows away when moving to carpet, it’s capable of cleaning your entire home without you lifting a finger.
Bissell SpinWave Robot
Best at mopping
- Simple vacuum, simple interface
- Dry vacuums and mops
- Low profile fits under most furniture
- Easy to change/empty the dustbin
- No bells and whistles
- Inefficient travel routes
Bissell is an established brand with a stellar reputation, so it should come as no surprise that its SpinWave Robot is an exceptional robot vacuum mop combo. Offering up to 1500 Pa of suction, the premium device is capable of cleaning even the dirtiest of carpets. What’s more impressive, however, is its mopping skills. The device is equipped with two massive cleaning pads that rotate and scrub while in motion – providing you with a deep clean across tile, LVP, hardwood, and other surfaces. Toss in soft surface avoidance to prevent it from mucking up your carpets while mopping, and you’ve got a device that performs well above its price tag.
Ecovacs N8 Pro+
- Very quiet sound while vacuuming
- Mops floors very well
- Avoids most obstacles
- Mopping plate is hard to remove
Our runner-up in this list is the Ecovacs N8 Pro+. Like Shark, Ecovacs put a lot of research into having an excellent navigation system in their robot cleaners. The N8 Pro+ also uses lidar for its stellar 3D object avoidance sensors. This system will ensure it never runs over your cell phone charging cables and dog toys.
There's also an in-depth Ecovacs app that you can use to help block off rooms that you don't want to be vacuumed. If you forgot to state it, the robot cleaner would know not to mop on softer areas so that it won't ruin your carpet or rugs.
One shortcoming of the N8 Pro+ is its battery life. At approximately 100 minutes, you may not be able to use this device in super spacious homes, but at least it will return to its auto-cleaning dock to recharge and then finish the job.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, robot vacuums with mops are worth it because they help save on appliance space and automate cleaning floors. Some people believe having dedicated products are better, which may or may not be accurate. However, having the convenience of both in one device can't be beaten.
Yes, but it's advisable to use a higher power setting if it's available. Some mops even recommend certain power settings for cement. You can also switch to light mopping levels for more delicate surfaces like hardwood, where you may not want the bot to wear away at a coating or varnish.
Prices are generally comparable. The best options will cost beyond $1,000, while budget models are available for a couple hundred dollars. However, robot mops take more effort to manage and clean, and you'll have to pay for new pads and cleaner from time to time.
Generally, you'll have to switch between mop modes and vacuum modes manually with a switch or app. The bots are smart, but they don't decide when you want to start mopping. While in mop mode, they have sensors and settings that will help them avoid carpets and rugs, etc.
