The Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro absorbs well on rough floors and excellent carpets. On the other hand, on a thick carpet, it is not powerful enough to absorb debris.
In fact, in this test area, it was placed in steady mode, which was able to absorb only 24% Tetritus in 4 minutes. By activating the turbo mode, it works even less, as it goes over the carpet and absorbs only 21% of the material in 3 minutes 55 seconds. In comparison, theEcovacs Deebot T9 + In the same test area 84% of the waste was able to be vacuumed.
On hard ground, on the other hand, the Xiaomi Robot absorbs 90% of waste simultaneously in standard mode and 97% turbo mode simultaneously in 3 minutes and 46 seconds, and the results are very similar on the carpet. It recovers 96% of the object in 5 minutes 22 seconds in standard mode and 94% Tetritus in 3 minutes in turbo mode.
We do not systematically test all robotic vacuum cleaners fitted with wipers to provide washing mode. However, the Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro has an acoustic vibration system – similar to the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra – that requires better cleaning of stains on the floor.
So, to see if this wipe function was effective, we decided to re-create the protocol assigned to robots that usually wipe the floor. And it is clear that this is not really the case.
We apply soda, oil, lipstick and carbon black to our lab site and let the stains dry overnight.
The next morning, with the application, we started our robot laundry system. The latter had to cross the stains on the ground, but they struggled to disappear. After three passes, we noticed that only a small dot of carbon black had disappeared, but the swab instead left black lines all over the floor. Not even a drop of lipstick moved the robot’s multiple passages. Only the grease stain finally disappeared.
