Braava 390t: tackling daily dust and dirt

The iRobot Braava 390t is supposed to help you maintain gleaming hard floors. But does it really? I’ve put this iRobot to the test.

It sounds promising: Put your broom away for good and let the Braava 390t floor mopping robot do all the cleaning. A friend of mine, Paul, recently bought an iRobot Braava and can’t stop raving about it. I figured that if he likes it, I might, too. And you could be next!

What Braava can do

The Braava 390t comes with two dry cloths to pick up dust, dirt and hair and two damp cloths to lift surface dirt and grime. It also includes a small cube that’s best placed on a table in the centre of a room. This cube measures your room and tracks where the robot has been and where it needs to go. There’s no need to worry about your data; neither Braava nor the cube are connected to the internet and your data is deleted after every cleaning run.

To get started, all you need to do is turn the robot and the cube on and establish a connection between the two. Just attach a cloth, put Braava down, press a button (dry or damp mopping) and off it goes. The iRobot dry mops about 95 m2 and damp mops about a third of this, as it passes very dirty spots several times.

The result

Braava is quiet as a church mouse and works its way through your home, leaving out no corner and picking up hair, dust and dirt. While its working along, I film the iRobot from every possible angle, hoping to catch it circling around my tripod. I could have cleaned the toilet or chilled out on the sofa instead, but I didn’t. As far as I know, there’s no iRobot that cleans toilets. That’s a shame. Before you use the Braava for the first time, I recommend hoovering the floor to get rid of any coarse dirt. Trust me, there will still be enough dust and hair left for the Braava to mop up.

Of course, I also want to find out how well the damp mode works. To get this started, you need to fill water into the included cleaning pad and attach the right cloth. This time, Braava moves a bit slower, but is also very thorough. It moves back and forth over the same spots and makes sure your floor is left spotless. I’m very impressed with the result. And all without even touching a broom. Amazing!

Paul’s opinion

My friend Paul has had Braava for several weeks now and hasn’t used a broom or vacuum cleaner since.

«My flat always seems clean to me, so I’m amazed at how much dirt Braava picks up every time. I use the iRobot three times a week, attaching Swiffer pads, and the pads return dirty every time. It’s a great feeling to know that Braava is doing the cleaning while I’m in the kitchen preparing a lovely dinner for my girlfriend. And guess what’s best? Since I have this small robot, I’m much more aware of keeping my floor tidy and don’t leave things lying around.» – Paul Siermann

I might get myself one

Personally, I turn to Swiffer or hoover once it’s badly needed, which is usually too late. Just placing Braava on the floor, pressing a button and letting it do the cleaning sounds very appealing. Besides, it gives me time to clean the toilet. At slightly more than CHF 250.–, the iRobot Braava 390t isn’t even expensive – considering that a good vacuum cleaning robot will cost you over CHF 1,000.–.

Das tönt genial. Ich würde mir gleich einen bestellen. Nur: kann man auch andere Tücher benutzen/kaufen? Für unseren Holzboden sollten wir keine Mikrofasertücher verwenden (Baumwolle wäre gut).

Ja, sie können auch andere Tücher benutzen. Man kann die Tücher über einen Klemmmechanismus ganz einfach anbringen.
