Bissell has announced a new robot vacuum cleaner with mopping function: the Bissell SpinWave R5. The robot vacuum cleaner can vacuum and mop at the same time. There are rotating mopping pads, unlike many other robot vacuum cleaners.
Robotic vacuum cleaner with mopping function
The Bissell SpinWave R5 is a robot vacuum that can also mop. Many robot vacuum cleaners with a mopping function use a wet mopping pad that is dragged across the floor. The SpinWave R5 is different: here the floor is actually scrubbed by rotating mop pads.
“With its two-in-one functionality and advanced technology enhancements, the SpinWave® R5 is a daily cleaning powerhouse that offers a versatile and efficient way to clean multiple floor types in your home”, said Carolyn Pearson, robotics brand manager at Bissell.
With a special sensor, the robot vacuum cleaner can avoid ‘soft surfaces'. This can be useful when the mopping function is activated: it can prevent the Bissell SpinWave R5 from driving over the carpet with wet mopping pads. The Bissel SpinWave R5 also features a specially designed edge cleaning brush that can easily grab dirt along the baseboards on the floor.
Operation via Bissel Connect app
The new robot vacuum cleaner – like other Bissell robot vacuum cleaners – can be operated via the Bissel Connect app. Here you can remotely start or stop the SpinWave R5 cleaning activities. Wherever you are.
“With no supervision necessary, this intelligent robotic machine produces a thorough cleaning, allowing more time to focus on other things in life“, said Pearson.
In the field of navigation, 360-degree LiDAR technology is used. This allows the robot vacuum cleaner to create advanced maps of the home and follow efficient cleaning routes. The Bissell SpinWave R5 is equipped with a lithium-ion battery that lasts up to 110 minutes.
