Review of Shark VacMop

 

Shark A1 Robot  VACMOP
After a month with our new dog, Dixie, I knew I needed another solution for keeping our floors free of dog hair and paw prints.  We have had a robot vaccum for several years and I really liked how it worked, however it was getting older and even though we had replaced the battery, it just couldn't handle the whole house without several recharging sessions.  Also, after two very rainy days, I saw that paw prints were also going to be a problem and the vacuum just didn't solve that problem.  I had seen the new robots that had both vacuum and mop features and I was intrigued.

Checking out the Features of the new Vacuum/Mops

There are many new vacuum and mop robots on the market and I found I had to read everything carefully to find one with the features that would work best for our house.  I didn't know much about them when I started out , but I did know I wanted one that both mopped and vacuumed at the same time. That feature alone eliminated several of the models who did one or the other, or that you had to change trays to switch from vacuuming to mopping.  I didn't want that.

I also found that several of the new models were wifi connected and would do a lot using my smart phone.  I even found a few that would work with Alexa or the Google Assistant.

I also wanted one that would really pick up the pet hair and one that would be easy to clean.

Features of the Shark AI Robot VACMOP(TM)

After my research and then checking out the sales, I decided on a Shark Robot. The ads said it was perfect for pet hair, had advanced navigation and a self cleaning brush roll.   Here are the features that helped me make my decision.
   1.  VacMop mode vacuums and mops at the
         same time.
   2.   Vac Mode has several speeds of suction, 
          allowing it to efficiently pick up  debris
         and pet hair.                  
   3.   Row by Row cleaning that has a laser vision 
         to detect and avoid objects.
   4.   It has WiFi and works with both Alexa and 
         Google Assistant.

 

How I Like my New Robot

I love my new Shark Robot.  When I first got it, I had it do a run to map out our house.  That was really cool how it navigated the house and then I was able to pull up a little map on my Smart Phone.  I then was able to mark carpets or any other area I did not want the robot to mop.  

I have found that it does an excellent job keeping my floors clean and free of pet hair.  I could choose to have it go at a scheduled time, but since we are always home I just tell Alexa when I want it to run.

I have found it easy to clean after using.  I just empty the dust pan and shake out the filter.  I will want to wash the filter once a month.

I am very pleased with my purchase and would definitely recommend this brand and model.

  1. That sounds really interesting, I did not know that they came with a mop feature. I think I found my next gadget worth having. Thanks Mary Beth for pointing me in this direction.

  2. How very cool! Our daughter has a robot vacuum, but not one that mops. I bet she would love that feature as well as the ability to turn it on via the smart phone. I am definitely going to share your review with her since her birthday is just around the corner. Non of us like to vacuum or mop. I love anything that takes the back-backing work out of my life.

  3. I had no idea that a robot vacuum could also mop. And to be able to control it with a Smartphone. Very clever.

  4. Well, how amazing this is, You just have to love technology. This certainly seems like a gadget we are going to want some day. I like the idea that you can program the robot floors or carpets. Thanks for the recommendation, Mary Beth.

  5. I had no idea that a housekeeping tool that vacuums and mops at the same time existed, much less a robotic one. What a wonderful help this must be, especially for cleaning sweet little Dixie's muddy paw prints and shedding fur!

  6. That's a fantastic item to have in the house - mops and vacuums, bonus. The price isn't too bad as well. That's pretty good. It seems like they're coming down in price.
