Not sure an office can be compared to house with kids...
Just curious if youíre happy with it why not get one for your home?
When we bought one from Costco for my house my wife insisted that we return it. It became a stepstool and wasn't helpful in requiring less sweeping/vacuuming.

Has anyone compared vacuums that also mop with separate robot mops?

See my previous post for the one that I have for about a month already. I got the "pro" mopping add on last week.

The pros:

  • It's the closest thing to a real mop that I've seen so far. It actually scrubs the floor.
    It actually makes the floor wet, on the standard mopping piece that comes with the robot, even on max flow it's barely a trickle, with this I left it on max flow and the floor was noticeably wet.

The cons:
  • Since the pad is actually vibrating vigorously it's much, much louder
    It says you can only use the disposable pads which means you'll have to keep buying them but I used the washable one and I think it was fine
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I never saw a robot vacuum in action, but I know someone that regretted buying one
I asked him again, he said that originally he got the roomba and wasn't happy at all with the navigation, he later got the ecovacs deebot, and he's satisfied with the job it does, both of them are over a year old they probably have better models today as technology keeps on advancing

I have the deebot, the navigation is mesmerizing. Itís almost become a family activity, watching how it moves around, avoiding some things entirely and slowly creeping up on others because it canít quite tell what it is but it knows there is something there.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Assuming you'd need one with a mop feature

You likely won't get a definite answer on this one, but an encouragement to refrain.

Assuming that says Shabbos, I can see an issue when you'd want to interfere as they easily get stuck.

I have been told that since it is not yet common in every home it would not be permitted to use on shabbos (same as it has been with air-conditions before it became common)

I'm looking for something specifically for only hardwood floors. I saw the roborock s6 pure for about $380. I'm wondering if there are any other deals out
