iRobot's WiFi-connected smart mop is safe for hardwood, tile, and stone floors, and can be scheduled to clean multiple rooms in one session; when its power is running low, the Braava jet automatically returns to the charging dock for a power boost before resuming its job. The mop learns to map and adapt to its surroundings, cleaning underneath furniture and in tight corners — and it can even be taught to avoid specific areas using the iRobot app!
