Marble, Moroccan, terracotta, mosaic – tiles have always been a versatile and timeless flooring option in interior design. Whether you're seeking a natural look like onyx, granite and limestone, or a bold statement with patterns, tiles are used to infuse colour, pattern, and texture into homes – it works just like a beautiful work of art.

Regular maintenance is essential to keep your design looking fresh, but it's a task that requires both time and elbow grease – luxuries in today's fast-paced world. If you struggle to find the time and energy to do so, why not consider a robot vacuum and mop? Since entering the market, these devices have promptly become household favourites by taking over cleaning duties. Thanks to technology advancements, they are becoming smarter and more efficient at vacuuming and mopping, offering a truly hands-free experience. These smart vacuums not only bring cleanliness but also promote health, as clean floors reduce allergens and bacteria.

Benefits Of Robot Vacuum & Mops

Picture this: your tile floors are always sparkling clean without you having to lift a finger. Sounds dreamy, right? That's the kind of convenience robotic vacuum mops offer. These smart devices are designed to handle various floor materials, including tile floors, which require a thorough sweep and mop to shine. In one charge, they vacuum up the dirt and then mop, leaving your tiles spotless.

Here’s the cool part – they’re smart, too. Featuring a number of settings that you can customize for different situations. Spilled some wine on the tiles? Simply select the area on the virtual map and activate the “Strong” vacuum and mop mode; it'll adjust the suction power and mopping wetness to tackle the grime without your intervention.

And don't worry about them bumping into your furniture. They navigate like a pro, avoiding obstacles and strategically cleaning your floors. Equipped with advanced sensors and AI-based mapping technology, they ensure that no spot is missed.

In terms of time-saving, these auto vacuums are designed to work independently, allowing you to focus on what truly matters. When paired with a multifunctional docking station like the ECOVACS OMNI station, which auto-empties the dustbin, refills the water tank, and cleans the mop heads, you can let it work on its own for months.

As for convenience, set them on a schedule, and they'll clean at the same time every day or whenever you prefer. Plus, with the app, you can monitor and control them remotely – for instance, start a cleaning session at the office before leaving work so that you can walk into a freshly cleaned home – how handy is that?

Maintenance & Care

Here's a quick rundown to get the best from your smart vacuum and mop and keep your tiles in top shape:

Preparation & Best Practice

Before starting the cleaning session, make sure you've got your space ready. Mark off “no-go” zones to keep it away from places like loose tiles and uneven floors. It is best to get them fixed in case of any hiccups in the cleaning process. Next, a quick scan for obstacles like shoes or loose wires can save you a hassle later – clear them out first so your automatic vacuum can breeze through cleaning.

Once the stage is set, you can then kick things off with the app or give a voice command, and watch it vacuum and mop those tiles.

Tile Floor Maintenance & Care

To maintain your tile floors in the best shape, keep a regular cleaning schedule. A gentle cleaner is the way to go to avoid any harsh reactions on tiles. When it comes to wiping up or mopping, think soft and gentle – microfiber cloth and soft bristles are recommended. And about water? Tile can handle a splash, but don't let puddles hang around as excessive water may seep into grout lines. Let your floors dry out completely before stepping back to reduce the risk of slipping and falling.
