- The mop is for cleaning stains only.

The Xiaomi Roborock S6 is an intelligent robot vacuum cleaner with excellent navigation and a lot of other features.

Navigation

Xiaomi Roborock S6 comes with excellent navigation cleans in fast and convenient routes. The feature makes cleaning more effective and possible for the robot vacuum cleaner to cover a large area.
The robot uses laser scanning to map the surroundings and plan the effective route, which works very well.
Roborock S6 creates a map of the room when cleaning. You can define ‘no-go’ zones for the robot where you do not want the robot to clean based on the map generated. This feature works efficiently than virtual walls and magnetic strips solutions offered by the robot vacuum cleaners. You can schedule cleaning for a specific room by using the map.
Roborock S6 cannot map multiple floors, so the mapping functionality is not helpful if the robot is moved between the multiple levels in your home. The robot vacuum cleaner will need to re-map the new floor by deleting the existing map every time it is moved to a different level as its memory storage is limited to a single map.
Following the robot vacuum cleaner in real-time is handy with the help of Roborock App in your smartphone, it even allows you to monitor mapped cleaning path to see the missed spots if any.

Cleaning and Maintenance

The Xiaomi Roborock S6 features powerful suction and is a great helping hand when it comes to daily cleaning.
The mopping feature works good for the stains but is not as perfect as manual mopping. The mopping is not useful for cleaning stubborn stains.
