Just like robot vacuums, robot mops are here to help you maintain clean floors without spending a lot of time scrubbing. You can even run them when you're not home to come back to shiny, clean hard floors.

When you're shopping for a robot mop, know that some models have robot vacuums built in, but some are solely meant for mopping—so if space is limited, you'll probably want a combo. Also, make sure you check the battery life—if you have a large area to mop, you'll want to make sure it can be finished in just one charge, if possible. Finally, pick a robot mop that's compatible with the technology you're most comfortable with—may have apps or can be linked to Google Home or Amazon Alexa, but some just have remotes if you'd prefer to keep it simple.

Here, the best robot mops to help save you time on cleaning.

Best Overall: Roborock S7

Roborock S7 Robot Vacuum and Mop with Sonic Mopping

Type: Mop and vacuum | Battery Life: 180 minutes | Mapping: Yes | Filter Type: Replaceable | Brush Type: Multi-directional floating brush | Smart Capabilities: Yes

What We Like
  • Quiet operation

  • Mops and vacuums simultaneously

  • Smart features

  • Long battery life

What We Don't Like
  • Expensive

The Roborock S7 is our top choice for robot mops. It has everything you would want in a mopping robot, does everything well, and even has some bells and whistles you probably didn’t even know you wanted. Instead of just moving a wet cloth around, the S7 uses sonic mopping (sonic vibration technology), to actually scrub floors up to 3,000 times a minute, so it can clean dried-on dirt. However, the acoustic design of the robot means that it’s quiet, so it won’t interrupt you as it’s working. The Roborock S7 both mops and vacuums, and has intelligent mop lifting, which recognizes carpets and will automatically lift up to avoid dragging the mopping pad over carpet.

Since the water tank and dustbin are in separate locations, you can both mop and vacuum at the same time, instead of having to empty the water tank before vacuuming. (Or you can choose to have the robot avoid carpeted areas altogether.) LiDAR technology allows you to create maps of the different rooms and levels in your home, and then you can create no-go and no-mop zones in each. 

The battery lasts for up to 180 minutes, so you won’t have to keep stopping to recharge. Also, the robot can be controlled with the Roborock app, which allows you to set schedules, cleaning modes, and more. Using Alexa, Google Home, or Siri, you can also issue voice commands. The child lock ensures that the robot never starts unexpectedly.

In addition, the vacuum features include a multi-directional floating brush designed to avoid hair tangles. And when the battery is low, the robot will return to its base to recharge, and then resume cleaning where it left off.  

Best Budget: iRobot 240 Brava

iRobot Braava jet 240

Type: Mop and sweeping pads | Battery Life: 60 minutes | Mapping: No | Filter Type: No filter | Brush Type: No brush | Smart Capabilities: No

What We Like
  • Affordable

  • Maneuvers small spaces

  • Works on all floor types

  • Avoids carpets and rugs

What We Don't Like
  • Mop pads are not reusable

The most economical choice on our list, the iRobot 240 Brava packs a powerful punch for being the smallest and least expensive robot mop. It can use fresh-scent wet mopping pads, damp sweeping pads, or dry sweeping pads—all of which are disposable.

This robot mop has a 7-inch cleaning path width, and is small enough to easily clean around table legs, against walls, and under furniture. This makes it ideal for small spaces like bathrooms and kitchens. The precision jet spray ensures that not too much water is sprayed on the floors, and it’s smart enough to avoid carpeted areas and rugs. The robot mop can be used on all floor types, and includes the ability to create invisible boundaries.  

Best Splurge: Ecovacs Deebot T8 AIVI

 Ecovacs Deebot T8 AIVI Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Type: Mop and vacuum | Battery Life: 180 minutes | Mapping: Yes | Filter Type: Replaceable | Brush Type: Side brushes | Smart Capabilities: Yes

What We Like
  • Maps and vacuums simultaneously

  • Long battery life

  • Intelligent mapping

  • Camera with live feed

What We Don't Like
  • Expensive

It’s expensive, but the Ecovacs Deebot T8 AIVI Robot is worth it. The water tank is large enough to provide over 2,000 square feet of mopping, and the robot can both mop and vacuum simultaneously. Several levels of water control allow you to choose the right amount for your needs. The battery lasts for 180 hours without needing to be recharged.

AIVI technology can detect and avoid objects on the floor, while TrueMapping creates multi-level maps of your home. The Ecovacs apps let you set schedules, no-go zones, water flow levels, and more conveniently from your smartphone. In addition the robot mop includes a camera with a live video feed, to let you see what your vacuum—and your pets—are doing when you’re not around.

Best for Hardwood Floors: Bissell SpinWave Wet and Dry

BISSELL SpinWave Hard Floor Expert Wet and Dry Robot Vacuum

Type: Mop and vacuum | Battery Life: 130 minutes | Mapping: No | Filter Type: Replaceable | Brush Type: dual spinning edge brushes, a rotating brush roll | Smart Capabilities: No

What We Like
  • Reusable mop pads

  • Avoids mopping soft surfaces

  • Hardwood friendly cleaning solution

What We Don't Like
  • No mapping features

The Bissell SpinWave Wet and Dry both mops and vacuums your floors, though it can't do both in one session. The robot also has a soft surface avoidance sensor, so it won’t go on carpets when mopping, a decent battery life (130 minutes on low), and is fairly quiet. Bissell's floor cleaning solution is also hardwood friendly, and the mop pads are washable, so you can reuse them.

The SpinWave app lets you schedule, stop, and start cleanings. Using the app, you can also select the water flow level and suction power, and even troubleshoot error messages. However, it does not have mapping features or voice control.

Best for Laminate Floors: Samsung Jetmop

Samsung Jet Mop

Type: Mops only | Battery Life: 100 minutes | Mapping: No | Filter Type: No filter | Brush Type: Two spinning pads | Smart Capabilities: No

What We Like
  • Eight cleaning modes

  • Two water tanks

  • Hand held mode to clean walls

What We Don't Like
  • No smart capabilities

While all robot mops clean floors, the Samsung Jetmop is unique because it also has a hand held mode that allows you to use it vertically to clean scuffs and marks on your walls. The Jetmop is also unique because it has eight cleaning modes, including random, manual, and focus. A smart sensor system is designed to avoid bumping into walls and furniture, mopping over carpeted areas, or falling off the top of the stairs.

The Jetmop has a 12.5 inch wide cleaning path, and it can mop right up against the wall and other tight spaces. The battery lasts for 100 minutes on a single charge, with two water tanks that each have enough water to last for 50 minutes.  The Jetmop uses two spinning pads at once, and two types of pads. The Mother Yarn mops up spills, and the Microfiber pads are designed to wipe effectively.

Best for Pets: Shark AI Vacmop Pro

Shark - AI Robot VACMOP PRO RV2001WD

Type: Mops and vacuums | Battery Life: 90 minutes | Mapping: Yes | Filter Type: Replaceable | Brush Type: Self-cleaning brushroll | Smart Capabilities: Yes

What We Like
  • Self-cleaning brush roll

  • Compatible with Alexa and Google

  • Mops and vacuums simultaneously

What We Don't Like
  • Short run time

The Shark AI Vacmop Pro mops and vacuums simultaneously. It’s a good choice for people with pets because the self-cleaning brushroll stops hair from getting tangled in it. The Vacmop, which has a 90-minute runtime, also includes sonic mopping to provide 100 scrubs per minute for an intense cleaning.

The Vacmop cleans in a straight line, going row by row to provide better coverage, instead of zig-zagging around.  Also, the IQ Navigation remembers no-go zones, and can detect and avoid objects. Using the SharkClean app, you can start the Vacmop, schedule moppings, increase suction, and create zones to avoid. It’s also compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant.

Best Low-Tech: Yeedi K700

Yeedi K700

Type: Mops and vacuums | Battery Life: 250 minutes | Mapping: Yes | Filter Type: Replaceable | Brush Type: Two side brushes | Smart Capabilities: No

What We like
  • Extra long battery life

  • Simple remote

  • Relatively quiet operation

What We Don't Like
  • No smart features

If you want a 2-in-1 robot that mops and vacuums, but you’re concerned that it might be too confusing to operate, consider the Yeedi K700. Since it doesn’t have all of the bells and whistles of some mop/vac robot combos, it’s a lot easier to use. The relatively quiet robot mop has a significantly longer battery life (250 minutes) than most competitors. It has a large water reservoir, so the dustbin needs to be swapped out to insert it, meaning you can't vacuum and mop in one session.

Additionally, the robot mop has sensors to avoid objects and to keep it from falling down the steps. It can’t create virtual boundaries, doesn’t work with apps or voice assistants, or schedule cleanings—but it does come with a simple remote with easy-to-understand controls.

Best Battery: Ultenic T10

Ultenic T10 Robot Vacuum and Mop with Auto Dirt Disposal

Type: Mops and vacuums | Battery Life: 280 minutes | Mapping: Yes | Filter Type: Replaceable | Brush Type: Side brushes | Smart Capabilities: Yes

What We Like
  • Extra long battery life

  • Mops and vacuums simultaneously

  • Maps multiple floors

What We Don't Like
  • Expensive

If battery life is important to you, the Ultenic T10 has the best we’ve found of any robot mop: 280 minutes. That’s 100 minutes longer than most robot vacuums that have long-lasting batteries. In addition, it uses a 2-in-1 dustbin to mop and clean at the same time. The water volume has four adjustable settings and also four cleaning modes. When the T10 is finished vacuuming, the charging base automatically suctions out dirt into a bag, allowing for mess-free emptying.

Using multi-floor mopping and smart laser navigation, the Ultenic T10 can map out multi floors, and it also recognizes and avoids objects and stairs. Instead of a straight line, the robot can mop like humans: left forward, back, right forward. Using the Ultenic App, voice control, or the remote control, you can create schedules, adjust mop settings, choose a mope option, and more.

Final Verdict

The best overall robot mop is the Roborock S7 (view at Amazon). Using sonic mopping to scrub floors up to 3,000 times a minute, it’s a beast on stains and dried-on dirt. Our second choice is the Ecovacs Deebot T8 AIVI Robot (view at Amazon), which also mops and vacuums simultaneously. We also like the camera that provides a live video feed of what your pets are doing when you’re not at home.

What to Look for in a Robot Mop

Type

There are two basic types of robot mops:

Mop only robot mops perform one function: they mop your floors. If you already have a vacuum-only robot vacuum, or if you don’t want a mop/vacuum combo, this may be your best option.

Mop/vacuum combos, also known as hybrid vacuums, both mop and vacuum. It can be quite convenient and save space to have one appliance that can mop your floors and also vacuum your floors and carpet.

Battery life

Battery life is important, especially if you have a large home. It’s time consuming if the robot mop has to keep stopping to recharge (which can take hours). If you have a lot of hardwood, look for a vacuum that can go for at least two hours, if not more.

Multi-room mapping

Multi-room mapping helps you create a floor plan for each of your rooms. The mapping feature is important because it provides a consistently efficient blueprint for the robot.  If you choose a robot mop without this function, it may take longer to clean every room as it zig-zags its way around the floor. 

Control method

An app provides convenient control and allows you to adjust settings via your smartphone. If you have Alexa or Google Assistant, it’s even easier. On the other hand, if you have spotty WiFi, or you’re not tech savvy, you may prefer to use a robot mop with a simple remote control.
