With Narwal, you can specify how many times you want the robot to vacuum or mop a certain area. The default is to vacuum each area one time on a single vacuuming session, but you can slide this along to vacuum room one, say three times versus the other rooms.
As the robot does its thing and vacuums the complete floor plan, you can see the map actually get a bit more clearer and more defined on the app as you go. You can see it shows you the path that it’s taking, which is really cool. So you can be sure that it is covering every bit of your house.
It makes sure that it’s covering every square inch. There is a step out in the laundry that heads to the garage. And what I did was I left the door open to see if the robot going to just go right over the edge and fall down the stairs and it doesn’t. It maps it correctly as it’s quite clever. It knew that there was an edge there and it stopped and then went backward.
It can go over bumps though, so if you got some bumps between floors or different rooms, that’s okay. Once it’s complete it goes back to its home base, and it gives you a cleaning report which shows you the size of the area that it vacuumed in time and date.
If you want to empty out the robots, just push home. The robot will exit, and now it’s as simple as lifting up the top. You’ll see the dust bin which is easy to remove as you pull up the handle. You’ll see that the robot does a great job of collecting the big bigs and small bits of dust in the air.
After we’ve finished vacuuming, we give our floor a mop, and to do that all we need to do is grab the robot and take off the vacuum attachment. So it’s as simple as pulling it out like that which is great, it’s not too much of a hassle to put on these mop pads, but as someone who can be lazy like me, maybe in the future, it would be cool if it was automated to do that.
Then we’re good to go! We pop the lid down and it’s on the ground, on the home base we fill up the water tank with clean water and add the detergent that it recommends.
So I’ll just drop that in, like, so close the lid now on the app here, you actually see when you put the mopping heads on it automatically recognizes that and it’s on mopping. Standby. Anyway, let’s take it home to the home base first because the mops will need to get wet for it too. Returning home back at home. Once it’s at the base station, you can go into the schedule and specify the number of times you want the robot to mop the floor. Then you push play on the app from the home base and it does its thing.
During the mapping phase, the robot is going to come back to the home base periodically in order to clean them up, get rid of the dirty water, and then replenish it with fresh water, which is one of the best parts.
So in the end, what you can do is you can open up. I only had to fill up the clean water tank once for that 100 square meters, but that’s pretty much at the limit at that point. You probably will need to read depending on the size of the floor plan you want to mop.
If we take a look at the dirty water tank, you can see how gross that is as it’s really brown. You can see that it really cleans up and it’s really a testament to how well this system works in cleaning, getting rid of the dirty mop water, and then replenishing it with clean water. It takes the socks off and you can feel the difference.
