1. It's a dry sweeper, a damp sweeper, and a wet mopper, all 3 in one!
The Braava Jet 240 iRobot Mop has three modes: dry sweeping, damp sweeping, and wet mopping. The way the robot works is that, you would attach either a dry sweeping pad, a damp sweeping pad, or a mopping pad to the robot, after which it will auto-detect what kind of pad is attached to it and it will run the appropriate mode.
The only thing you have to pay attention to is that the damp sweeping and the mopping actions will require you to fill the robot with water, but that's pretty much all you have to keep in mind.
When you buy the Braava Jet 240 iRobot Mop, the box comes with 2 dry sweeping pads, 2 damp sweeping pads, and 2 wet mopping pads to get you started. You can then purchase additional pads according to your usage from the iRobot Amazon store or any other homeware stores that carry the brand. By the way, these pads smell pretty great!
I don't recommend buying the disposable wet mopping pads, because...
2. Washable, reuseable mopping pads are available!
If you are not a fan of getting disposable pads like me, get the washable mopping pads. It comes in a pack of two, and I'm only on my second pad since buying the robot last year!
3. You don't have to worry about it getting stuck under the bed when it finishes cleaning
If you've had a cleaning robot before, chances are you may have encountered one that made its round in your bedroom, only to have it finish cleaning, then it stops under the bed. This would be inconvenient, as you would then have to crawl under the bed to rescue it.
The Braava Jet 240 iRobot Mop returns to the position where you turned it on, so if you turned it on from the corner where your bookshelf is at, that's where it's gonna end up at once it's done cleaning.
4. It cleans corners better
Since the Braava Jet 240 iRobot Mop has a square-like shape, it makes it easy for it to sweep or mop around a right-angled corner compared to a round-shaped robot. By the way, the robot works on most kinds of hard floors, be it wood, tiles, or stones.
The Braava Jet 240 iRobot Mop dry sweeps, damp sweeps, and wet mops, but it does not vacuum. It's mainly branded as a mopping robot, not a vacuuming one. Depending on your needs though, the sweeping and mopping functions this robot has may be good enough!
