How many of us love cleanliness but find it often difficult to clean our homes daily? I guess the answer will be all of us love to have a clean home but doing it by own hands is not everyone’s cup of tea or you are just not able to find time to do it yourself or you don’t trust keeping a domestic help.
Just like many household chores have been made simpler by automation like kneading machine or dish washer, we also have autonomous cleaning robots at our disposal. Such robots have been in use for some fifteen years and have come handy in cleaning floors, pools and gutters.
Today the markets are crowded with the cleaning robots of various make, however, the popularity favours the iRobot. iRobot is a company dedicated to the development of the military and domestic robots for various purposes. iRobot’s Roomba is the debut autonomous robotic vacuum cleaner launched in year 2002. After more than a decade into the automation of the cleaning chores, iRobot has come up with another tailor-made cleaning robot named as Braava Jet. This robot has been designed with a view to make the robotic cleaning technology accessible to a larger population.
Braava Jet belong to the Braava family of mopping robots which cleans hard floors to get rid of dust and stains especially in hard-to-reach places. It had been designed to meet the requirements of cleaning smaller areas like under kitchen cabinets or near toilets. It employs precision jet spray and vibrating cleaning head to loosen dirt and stains.
The Braava Jet has three modes of cleaning namely wet mopping, damp sweeping and dry sweeping. Each mode has a different cleaning pad at the bottom of the robot which locks away the dirt. It can clean up to 200 square feet in damp/dry mode and up to 150 square feet in wet mode.
Braava Jet uses iAdapt technology for self navigation. It uses a bumper to detect objects, a wheel count to tell how far it’s traveled, and a gyroscope to keep track of how much it turns. The Braava Jet is also equipped with iRobot’s virtual wall feature using which you can set up virtual wall to restrict the Braava Jet from the area you don’t want it to clean.
Braava Jet is very easy to use. You just have to select a cleaning pad as per your requirement and press clean button. The rest is automatically done by this extremely capable robot. It has been priced at $199.99 which is $100 lower as compared to its precedent Braava 300. It also offers additional features like precision jet spray and three cleaning modes as against two modes of cleaning in Braava 300.
Well, Braava Jet has its cleaning limits. It can clean only one small room at a time and after each room it may require a cleaning pad change or charging the battery requiring more supervision. It is far less powerful as compared to a Roomba which can clear an entire home at a time, however, it is cost efficient.
Braava Jet offers umpteen advantanges in quite an affordable cost which makes it an attractive cleaning partner. It is popularly said that good things come in small packages. Well, we hope that Braava Jet corrobates the same. So would you like Braava Jet as your cleaning partner?
