- Robot weight of 4.85 Lbs.
- The robot is 3.5 inches and 10.6 inches wide.
These are some of the basic specs you need to know about the robot.
What Area Can The Robot Clean?
The robot can mop large rooms since it can recharge itself whenever the battery is low. However, on average, the robot can cover between 300 – 1000 square feet before it runs out of battery. It covers this area when you have attached a clean pad and the water tank is full. You must include the cleaning solution so that it does not leave some tracks along the path that it is cleaning. It may leave tracks if you use a cleaning solution that is too soapy. Try to use the cleaning solution that is packed with the robot at the time of purchase, if it runs out, purchase the same type/from the same brand.
The robot could clean a larger area than the average if you refill the tank and change the cleaning pads frequently, you don’t need to worry about the battery since the robot can recharge itself whenever it senses that it is running out of power.
Do Bona Floor Cleaners Work With iRobot M6?
Bona floor cleaners are not approved to be used with this robot. The manufacturers always pack cleaning solutions when you purchase the robot. It is advisable to use these cleaning solutions so that you don’t damage the robot.
Some users have tried the cleaner but it has not worked perfectly for all the users. We have some users diluting the solution to be the same concentration as the water you have diluted with, the results are not too bad.
If you must use these cleaners, then you might need to dilute the concentration to 50%. If you are not so sure of what you are doing, do not use the solution at all to avoid damaging the robot.
