Need a Break from Constant Cleaning? This New Vacuum Will Also Scrub and Mop Your Floors for You

This article was sponsored by Roborock.


Did you know that on average, people spend a half an hour every week vacuuming their floors? That may not seem like such a big deal, but when you add it up, it means most of us will spend the equivalent of 60-something days vacuuming over the course of our lifetimes. That’s more than two whole months! Add in time washing dishes, wiping down bathrooms, putting things away, and doing laundry, it’s no wonder we sometimes feel like we’re constantly picking up.

Given all that, it’s understandable if the idea of spring cleaning doesn’t excite you as much as the return of spring weather. This, on the other hand, might: The new Roborock S7 — which was so popular it sold out in 24 hours when it launched last month — is back in stock (Available on Amazon for pre-order, in stock April 29, $649.99) and it will clean your home for you, giving you back some of those precious hours you’d normally spend doing it yourself.

Robot vacuums are more popular than ever for their hands-(well, whole body) free cleaning ability, but the S7 takes things up a notch. Not only does it vacuum up dust and dirt on carpet, hardwood, and tile, it also scrubs and mops for you, so you can do — well, whatever you want to do instead of cleaning.

Why we like it:

  • Scrubs up to 3,000 times per minute for deep cleaning of stubborn dirt
  • Upgraded floating brush tracks close to the ground, even on uneven surfaces
  • All-new rubber brush is more durable than bristled brushes, and is better at avoiding hair tangles
  • Compatible with Auto-Empty Dock that lets you vacuum often and empty rarely

Cleaning from the Ground Up

When it comes to cleaning, your floor is truly ground zero. A spotless floor is where it all starts, and that’s why the Roborock S7 has us so excited. Sweeping, vacuuming, scrubbing, and mopping, all done for us, and more effectively and efficiently than we could do it ourselves? Yes, please!

The Roborock S7 uses sonic vibration technology to clean floors deeply and effectively. Its HyperForce™ suction system captures everything from fine dust to strands of hair. We love our cats and all, but do they have to shed everywhere? A floating brush means the S7 can work on uneven surfaces and tracks close to the ground, so it won’t miss any stray crumbs from last night’s Netflix binge. Most robot vacuums stop there, but this little guy moves on to the mopping section of the program. The built-in mop scrubs up to 3,000 times per minute, so any ground-in dirt that would require a good amount of elbow grease doesn’t stand a chance.

Worried about your carpets getting in the way of Roborock’s mopping? VibraRise technology incorporates automatic lifting into the ultra-fast vibrating sonic mop. Just send the vacuum around your entire home once so it can learn the lay of the land, and thanks to its ultrasonic waves, the S7 will know exactly when to lift up to keep carpets and rugs pristine. This allows it to both vacuum and mop your space in just one session. (You can also use the Roborock app to draw a no-mop zone for the S7 yourself if you prefer.) When it’s finished, the S7 will return to its dock to recharge and you can ogle over how sparkling your floors are without ever having to have lifted a finger.

Get hours of your life back — and still have spotless floors.

Owning a Roborock S7 means you’ll spend less time cleaning, and more time enjoying your home. Setting it up is simple, and maintaining it is a breeze. The large dustbin stores many days’ worth of dust, so you won’t have to empty it frequently. Want to empty it even less often? The S7 is compatible with Roborock’s Auto-Empty Dock (sold separately). The 300 ml water tank cleans over 2,000 square feet without needing to be refilled, and a rechargeable battery powers the S7 for up to three hours on a single charge.

You can use the Roborock app to create detailed maps of your home and name specific rooms, so you can schedule cleaning exactly where you want, when you want it. Big house? No problem — you can map out rooms on up to four floors. The Roborock S7 (Available on Amazon for pre-order, in stock April 29, $649.99) truly takes cleaning to the next level (pun intended!).

Spring cleaning — and all-year-round cleaning, for that matter — will never be the same. All that’s left is for you to decide what you’ll do with all the extra time you used to spend cleaning.
