Leader in consumer robots iRobot has announced an exclusive partnership with cleaning brand Bona. The brand wants to offer tailor-made cleaning solutions for its Braava Jet M6 mopping robots. The collaboration includes new Bona solutions for cleaning wood floors and a new microfibre pad for the Jet M6.
Cleaning Solution and Cleaning Pad for iRobot Braava M6
This is both a new cleaning product and a completely new cleaning pad for the iRobot Braava M6. The cleaning agent comes in two different versions: a product for hard floor types – the Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner – and a special variant for wooden floors: the Bona Hard-Surface Cleaner.
The new cleaning pad bears the name Bona PowerPlus Microfiber Deep Cleaning Pad and has a unique design. There is talk of a PowerLoop technology. The cleaning pad lifts the dirt, as it were, after which it absorbs it. This prevents the dirt from being spread over the floor again.
Custom designed and certified
The new products are specially designed and certified for the iRobot Braava Jet M6, the mop robot. The collaboration seems to bring the two specialties of both brands together well. “By combining iRobot’s expertise in robot mopping with Bona’s expertise in hard floor cleaning solutions, we will provide our customers with the highest quality and most effective robot mopping experience,” said Keith Hartsfield, Chief Product Officer at iRobot.
Kirk Roberts, Bona’s senior vice president of strategic development, also spoke of a perfect combination: “Working with iRobot is the perfect combination of technological excellence and cleaning innovation,” said the strategist.
Price and availability
The new iRobot and Bona cleaning solutions will be sold at several major retail outlets in the United States and Canada. The two new cleaning agents are for sale immediately. The cleaning pad will be available from November.
