The Best Robot Vacuum Cleaner for Seniors

The mop slides into place


I only realized that my old robot must have had brain damage when I compared it to my new Roborock. The difference is astounding. The old one picked a new random path each run. The Roborock is like a soldier with OCD.

Easily my favorite robot vacuum is the Roborock S5 with built-in mop and amazing carpet results. I have been using the S5 for over a year. I am still thrilled with its cleaning ability and navigation sense.

The mop easily slides into place under the machine. Just line it up with the front and push, it snaps into place.

  • The wet cloth mops anything the brush doesn’t catch
  • The mop removes the pollen from the floor
  • Use the phone app to summon the mop after cooking; command it to clean the cucumber shavings on the floor
  • The mop is not for cleaning dirty floors. It’s for keeping clean floors clean

Why the Roborock S5 is Good for Seniors

I want my robot to last, so I clean it about once every 2 weeks. It only takes a few minutes of wiping down and changing out the filter.
