We’ve all seen these small little disc robots roaming around other people’s floors. It’s amazing how this compact little thing has the power of an ordinary vacuum cleaner yet it is also very advanced- some even built-in with mops! Today, let’s focus on the Roborock S6 MaxV that we’ve seen everyone show off and rave about, so read on what Glitz thinks.

Robotic vacuum cleaners are self-contained machines. They’re designed to clean your hardwood floors, tiles, and carpets of dirt and debris in the same way that normal vacuum cleaners do. The most significant distinction is that these robots can help you lessen the amount of cleaning you have to perform on a regular basis. Suction power is usually lower on budget models.

As a result, depending on how you look at it, it may negate the point of owning a robot vacuum to assist you in cleaning fine dust on a regular basis. This smart home device is modest in size but packs a punch when it comes to cleaning. It also has superior floor-cleaning abilities. Smart cleaning is a type of vacuum cleaner that can accomplish significantly more than a standard upright vacuum and requires no user participation.

What Is The Roborock S6 MaxV?

Since its debut in 2016, Roborock has specialised in robot vacuums but has expanded to include mopping and even home security features. The Roborock S6 MaxV is a more powerful version of the S6. Stereo cameras that assist it to avoid typical impediments while also providing HD surveillance footage, up to three hours of battery life, a stronger 2,500 Pa suction, and multi-floor mapping are among the enhancements.

The Roborock S6 MaxV is quite similar to other Roborock models from the newest generation, such as the Roborock S6 and S5 Max. The S6 MaxV has a longer battery life of 180 minutes than the S6 and S5 Max, despite the fact that they all have the same 5200mAh battery capacity. The S6 MaxV also boasts a higher suction power than the S6, as well as greater rated power and a larger water tank than the S6 and S5 Max.

Many people believe the Roborock S6 MaxV is a good value for money and performs well. The price in Singapore starts at $699.00. Below we have collected links to where you can purchase.

Setting Up

The app allows you to control the functioning of your robot vacuum, such as setting up no-go zones, assigning particular areas to clean, and picking power levels. There are levels: Max, Turbo, Balanced, Gentle, and Quiet. Simply position your charging dock and robot in their respective areas, power on the robot, and follow the simple setup instructions on the mobile app.

It is accessible on both the Google Play Store and the Apple AppStore. You may also use this screen to set up speech recognition for the robot. All three assistants, Google Assistant, Siri, and Alexa, are supported.

When in mapping mode, the app also lets you monitor the live stream of the robot cleaning. Whether you’re at home or away, you can use your smartphone to turn on the robot and start cleaning, then sit back and watch it do its thing. However, in order to control the robot from a distance, it must be connected to your home internet.

Okay So Let’s Talk About How Good It Actually Cleans

The Roborock S6 MaxV did an excellent job of picking up even the tiniest particles of dust and other dirt that we could feel beneath our feet. You’ll have no trouble untangling the few hairs stuck at the tangle-brush below, as well as emptying the dustbin, which should be washed once a week. With the S6 MaxV’s large bin capacity and Balanced mode, it can pick up everything on the first try and clean my 1,000-square-foot space around three times before requiring a recharge and bin-emptying.

The robot will propose that you empty your bin if it is full. In addition, if your robot’s battery runs out, it will return to the dock and charge itself.

When it’s time to mop, just fill the 300ml tank with water, insert it, and the vacuum will automatically switch to mopping mode. It cleans easily but those hard to get out stains are another challenge. To get rid of such evident stains, you’ll need at least two or three mopping sessions.
