iRobot announced today that it has achieved a significant milestone of selling more than 10 million units around the globe. The company already offers a broad portfolio of robots that do cleaning jobs and much more. Today, the company announced two models of the Braava Floor Mopping Robot, Braava 320 and Braava 380t. These robots have been designed to systematically and efficiently dry or damp mop hard floors, keeping them free of dust and other debris.
Both Braava robots are capable of cleaning virtually all hard-surface floors, including vinyl, hardwood and laminate. They use disposable or reusable cleaning cloths which can be easily attached or removed. The robots start simply with the push of a button and once they’re done, they return to the point from where they started. There are two cleaning modes. In Dry Mop mode the robots will sweep back and forth in straight lines using dry cleaning cloths to scoop up dirt and dust whereas in Damp Mop mode they use a special back and forth mopping action with damp cleaning cloths to lift any dirt and grime off the floors. The expanded features of Braava 380t include a Pro-Clean system that dispenses liquid during the cleaning cycle and a bigger battery. Braava floor mopping robots are now available from iRobot’s website, pricing starts at $199.
