Hardwood floors look exceptional, that is, so long as they’re clean. The makers at iRobot have been developing domestic and military robotic technology since 1990, providing a convenient means of keeping clean ever since debuting the Roomba in 2002. The company’s past experience with the niche technology has catapulted it to the top of the list for robotic vacuum cleaners. The Mint 4200 Hard Floor Robotic Cleaner is one of many in iRobot’s home lineup, utilizing wet and dry cleaning modes specifically designed for hard floors. The square-like device quietly traps dirt within its microfiber cleaning pads using a smart guidance system, avoiding rugs and stairs whenever possible and lasting up to three hours on a single charge.
Moreover, the device can clean up to 800 square feet when in dry mode — or 250 square feet using a wet cleaning cloth — and it automatically shuts off to conserve energy and supplies when not needed, bolstering its economic incentive even further. Now through July 16, online discount retailer Groupon is offering $160 off the iRobot Mint 4200 Hard Floor Cleaner’s initial list price, with bundled free shipping while supplies last.
