Roborock S7 review: Ultra efficient two-in-one cleaning with ingenious vibrating mop Review

Nancy J. Delong

The Roborock selection of robotic vacuums is properly designed, and strong. With a complete app that is uncomplicated to join to, these robots are really considerably worth their mid-to-superior selling price position. The new Roborock S7 robotic vacuum, unveiled to Amazon currently, is a fantastic addition to the Roborock selection.

The Roborock S7 is significant at four.7kg with a large ability dustbin, drinking water tank, and mopping module which are uncomplicated to insert and eliminate. It also has a washable filter to conserve on substitute prices.

Like most other Roborock products the S7 makes use of LIDAR to generate a specific map of your natural environment. It will recognise a multi-amount space much too, so its does not have to have to redraw its map each individual time it is relocated.

Its 5,200mAh Lithium ion battery will clean up for up to three several hours just before it goes back again to the dock to recharge. Its 2500Pa suction electricity implies that the S7 is one of the most strong robotic vacuums on the market, yet it is reasonably tranquil when compared to some other robotic vacuums I have reviewed.

Compared with many other robotic vacuums, the roller brush on the S7 is designed from finned rubber which bounces dust off the carpet with its vibration and will scrape pet and human hairs off carpets.

The most important innovation in the latest design is the mopping module. Preceding products dragged a mopping fabric about the flooring, and usually did not manage to eliminate dried on marks.

Only the force of the fabric about the flooring wiped the space, and was not notably successful on filthy, pet stained, or muddy flooring. This mop module is a a probable recreation changer for any person who desires a two-in-one robotic.

The S7 mop module vibrates. Its “sonic vibration technological innovation” implies that its mop module plates vibrate from facet to facet 3000 periods per minute which proficiently acts to scrub the flooring.

I have only noticed this style of technological innovation a few of periods. The Ecovacs Deebot Ozmo T8 has a vibrating mop module accessory which vibrates 480 periods per minute, and the Hobot Legee 688 mopping module vibrates at 600 periods per minute.

The app connects quickly to the S7 without having any of the connectivity issues that plague other robotic vacuum applications. Download the Roborock app from the keep, and join employing two.4GHz Wi-Fi. You can also handle the robotic employing Alexa, Siri, or Google Dwelling.

The app allows you attract zones to clean up, routine cleansing periods, and increase no-go zones, no-mop zones, and invisible partitions that the robotic will not cross.

The app also has configurations to improve the mop scrubbing intensity from lower to rigorous, and modify the vacuum electricity from tranquil, as a result of balanced, to turbo, and max.

You can even improve the mop route from normal to deep which will reduce the vacuum electricity, and move the robotic in a tighter pattern so that it handles each space of the flooring twice. This is seriously valuable for deep cleansing flooring that have not been cleaned for a even though.

The S7 will mop up dried on stains as a result of this scrubbing. You can pick out a zone for it to mop, or pick out the pin and go solution which allows you established a precise space for the S7 to mop – these as the space close to an exterior door. The S7 will go straight there to clean up

The mopping tank retains 300ml of drinking water and its on-board dustbin will keep up to 470ml of dust and fluff.

In use, the S7 detects when it encounters carpets and rugs and it will raise the mopping module up to 5mm off the ground as it crosses on to the carpeted space.

The vibration and drinking water feed stops when it transitions from difficult flooring to the rug.

Suction electricity also increases considerably when the S7 moves about carpet.

You can either allow the robotic do its issue and raise up the mop as it crosses on to carpet, or you can established zones that the S7 will not cross.

The app indicates which regions of the flooring have really been mopped by marking the regions with a broad white mark in the app map.

Normal vacuuming is marked with a slender white line. You can quickly see which regions have been mopped and which have been vacuumed.

Even though a small late to market when compared to other robotic vacuum manufacturers, Roborock is also releasing an Automobile-Vacant dock afterwards in 2021. Roborock claims that the S7 will get the job done with this dock.

I was pleasantly amazed with the mopping module. I have reviewed a number of robotic vacuums, and usually it would seem like the mopping module has been additional as an afterthought.

Some mopping modules do not clean up soiled flooring properly at all. The S7 would seem to clean up grubby flooring better employing drinking water, than other robots can when employing cleansing resolution and drinking water. Quite impressive in truth.

All in all, for underneath $600 the Roborock S7 robotic vacuum is a recreation changer of a two-in-one robotic vacuum. Recognising rugs and carpets will do away with the have to have to established zones all around your space – and make your life a lot easier.
