Scrubbers and mop self-cleaning sweeping robots have obvious differences in the principles of mopping/wiping and mop (rolling brush) self-cleaning, which also leads to the fact that scrubbers are more likely to stink than self-cleaning sweeping robots.
Comparison of the principles of self-cleaning between household floor washing machines and sweeping robots.
The first is the difference in cleaning principles:
When the Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner is mopping the floor, the soft and hard bristles on the bottom roller brush and the ground stains are continuous high-rotation friction.
The running water self-cleaning of the roller brush and the mopping process are carried out at the same time, which can maintain the durability of the roller brush during the “floor washing” process. Clean, the huge suction force generated by the motor will suck the sewage generated during the process of cleaning the roller brush and mopping the floor together with the dry and wet garbage on the ground into the sewage tank;
Traditional sweeping and mopping robots fix a flat mop at the bottom, and the built-in clean water tank of the main unit continuously wets the mop. The wet mop and stains can almost be wiped away. The larger the cleaning area, the dirtier the mop, and the more stains accumulate on the mop, the clean water in the water tank will become sewage and scrape on the floor after being passed through the dirty mop, so the mopping effect of traditional sweeping and mopping robots is poor;
The mop self-cleaning + automatic water injection automatic mop sweeping and mopping robot generally uses a downward-pressing rotating mop. The round mop has a larger contact area with the stain during the twisting process, and the dust-holding effect is better. And it can clean a certain area or time After that, it will automatically return to the base station to clean the mop, avoiding the continuous wiping of the dirty mop, and the mopping effect is obviously stronger than that of traditional flat-panel sweeping and mopping robots. However, before backwashing the mop, the rotating mop of the self-cleaning sweeping and mopping robot also has a process of cleaning a dirty mop. During the backwashing process, there is also the situation that the dirty mop polluting the ground twice;
The reason why the washing machine is easy to smell is related to its cleaning principle and structural design.
As mentioned before, when Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner is mopping the floor, the huge suction force generated by the motor will suck the sewage generated during the cleaning roller brush and floor wiping process, as well as the dry and wet garbage on the ground into the sewage tank, which causes two The unavoidable disadvantages of the washing machine:
One is the mixture of solid and liquid garbage. The mixture of liquid and edible debris can be said to be a paradise for bacteria breeding. If it is not cleaned up in time, it is inevitable that the sewage tank will stink;
The second is that the entire sewage circuit of the Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner is directly connected to the roller brush, and the peculiar smell produced by the fermentation inside the sewage tank will also be transmitted to the roller brush, and the peculiar smell of the roller brush will be released on the floor when mopping the floor next time, which is why many friends use Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner to mop the floor, but the more they drag it, the more smelly the home becomes. It is also generally recommended to clean the sewage tank after using the floor scrubber and take out the roller brush and HEPA filter to dry.
The sweeping and mopping robot that supports automatic cleaning of the mop is the same as the traditional sweeping robot. It sweeps before and then drags. All dry garbage such as snacks and debris enters the dust box. There is a mixture of solids and liquids in the recovery tank. The mop and the sewage tank are not connected to each other. Many self-cleaning sweeping and mopping robots are also equipped with cold-air or hot-air drying mops. The cleaning base and mop are relatively dry and are not prone to poisonous odor.
For household cleaning, choose a washing machine or a self-cleaning sweeping robot?
The biggest advantage of Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner is that it can absorb dry and wet mixed garbage at the same time, and the cleaning effect on the ground stains is also stronger than that of the sweeping robot. With the design of the fuselage with a water tank, it is difficult for the washing machine to penetrate under the bed and sofa for cleaning. In addition, a common shortcoming of most washing machines is also common feedback from users of the washing machine for a long time The problem, is the smelly problem seen above.
Compared with Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaners, the biggest advantage of the sweeping robot is to free your hands. You can start or make an appointment to clean the whole house before going to work. However, the sweeping robot also has disadvantages: first, the cleaning efficiency is low, and it takes more than an hour to complete the cleaning of the whole house (> 80m in the set), and second, the cleaning effect on more stubborn stains is far inferior to that of high-speed rotation + running water self-cleaning roller brush. machine and the third are that it cannot be used like a vacuum cleaner In the same way, the three-dimensional space above the ground is covered for cleaning.
Focus on the cleaning of dry and wet garbage, and choose a Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner. If you already have a sweeping robot or vacuum cleaner at home, Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner is more suitable as an auxiliary tool to strengthen the deep cleaning of the ground, to clean stubborn stains that the sweeping robot cannot mop, or to complement the wet mopping function that the vacuum cleaner cannot perform.
Families with pets and office workers who focus on cleaning the floor choose A Robot Vacuum Cleaner. The whole cleaning process of the sweeping robot requires almost no human intervention. It independently plans the route to cover and clean the entire floor of the house, and the corners and low areas of the room can be effectively cleaned. The all-around sweeping robot does not need to manually clean the mop and clean the dust box. After cleaning the whole house, it will automatically clean and dry the mop and automatically collect dust.
