One thing that comes out very strongly from the popularity of robot vacuums is the fact that many people dread cleaning their homes. Unfortunately, the need for clean homes is not something we can do away with, so we have to figure out ways to get clean homes without being actively involved in the cleaning process.
Robot vacuums provide an excellent solution to the homeowner who wants to avoid vacuuming but still wants to enjoy living in a clean home that’s vacuumed regularly. If you want to take everything a notch higher to get a sparkling clean home without your direct input, then you will need to invest in a robot vacuum mop combination.
Fortunately, many of the companies that make robot vacuums have robot vacuum mops that perform amazing jobs of ensuring that you have a home that’s cleaner than what you would have achieved with a robot vacuum alone.
In this article, we are going to compare two of these devices. These are the Eufy RoboVac L70 Hybrid and the Roborock E35 Vacuum and Mop. They come with some very impressive features that make them well suited for cleaning homes.
Let’s jump in and find out which of these two devices will be the best option for your home.
Suction Strength and Vacuuming Effectiveness
We will start by looking at the vacuuming side of things and find out how effective these two devices will be at sucking in dirt from your floors.
Eufy RoboVac L70
With a suction of 2200 Pa, this robot vacuum comes packed with enough strength to pick up both small and large particles from the floor. Regardless of whether you have hard floors or carpets, this vacuum will have no problems picking up any dirt and foreign particles.
To ensure that you get the best results, this suction works hand in hand with advanced sensors that ensure that you get the very best of results. These sensors work with the BoostIQ feature that monitors the surfaces being cleaned and steps up the suction power automatically when extra vacuuming strength is needed.
With 2000 Pa of suction, this robot also does a great job of lifting dirt and debris from your floors. To properly manage this suction power without interfering with battery life, this robot comes with the Carpet Boost feature that will automatically step up the suction when it reaches a carpeted area.
It also gives you the power to choose just how much of this suction you need in the cleaning job by giving you a choice of five vacuuming modes and one moping mode. Depending on the amount of dirt that you will be dealing with, you can choose between quiet, balanced, turbo, max, carpet, and moping modes. With such a wide range, you will have no problem finding the perfect one for your needs.
Now that we know how effective these robots are in vacuuming, let’s take a closer look at their performance in moping.
Eufy RoboVac L70
Moping on this robot is done very effectively thanks to the use of intelligent moping technology that adjusts the amount of water entering the moping pad according to the floor surface. This way, it can get the floor wet enough to pick up any fine particles without spilling excess water.
You also get the power to adjust power settings for moping so that the device will produce the best results in different floor surfaces. Maintenance of the moping system is also very straightforward because all you need to do is to wash the moping pads regularly and you will continue to enjoy amazing results.
Moping on this robot is also quite effective. The water tank on this robot has been designed to ensure that water flows out evenly as the moping pad dries. This way, the robot will get your floors wet enough to pick up the fine particles that were missed by the suction while at the same time making sure that there are no puddles.
You also can tell it to vacuum and mop simultaneously to ensure that the job is finished faster on hard floors. Like in the Eufy L70, the moping pads on this robot are also washable so you won’t need to worry about purchasing new ones every few weeks.
Let’s now take a look at the performance of the batteries in these two robots.
Eufy RoboVac L70 Hybrid
The battery on this robot is a 5200 mAh battery that comes with enough juice to power the device for 2.5 hours. This is amazing, especially when you consider that most robot vacuums will only work for an hour or so before they have to recharge.
As if this long runtime is not enough, this robot comes with the recharge and resume feature. This means that if you are working on very large rooms that will take more than 2.5 hours to clean, it will interrupt the cleaning run, go back to the dock for a charge, then come back and resume cleaning from where it had stopped.
This robot vacuum and mop also comes with a high capacity 5200 mAh battery that will give you a runtime of up to 2.5 hours. This is also complemented by the recharge and resume feature that will see the robot return to the charging dock for a charge when the battery runs low; then it will resume from where it had stopped once the battery is full.
Navigation and Controls
Let’s finish by finding out how effective these robots are in finding their way around your home.
Eufy RoboVac L70 Hybrid
When it comes to navigation, this robot does not disappoint. You can link it to your smartphone to view virtual maps of your homes. Using these maps, you will be able to set virtual boundaries that will tell the robot where it should not go.
It follows a systematic path that will ensure that cleaning is done faster than if the robot just wandered around randomly. This pattern also ensures that no spots are missed in the cleaning pattern. Controlling the robot can be done using a smartphone app or through voice control via Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant.
Like the Eufy robot, the Roborock E35 also cleans in a systematic Z-shaped pattern that ensures efficiency and quick cleaning while reducing the chances of missing some spots in the cleaning. You can control this device via the smartphone app or Amazon Alexa.
This comparison is a very close contest between these two devices. However, the Eufy RoboVac L70 has a slight edge over the Roborock E35 because of the higher suction strength and the ability to receive voice commands from the Google Assistant in addition to Amazon Alexa.
