Consumers looking for an easy solution to mopping their floors at home may welcome the new partnership between iRobot and Bona.
The two companies with long histories in floor care are teaming to offer several new products designed for use with the iRobot Braava jet m6 robot mop. The items include Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner, Bona Hard-Surface Cleaner solutions and the Bona PowerPlus Microfiber Deep Cleaning Pad.
The co-branded cleaning solutions and microfiber pads will be sold at select retailers in the U.S. and Canada, as well as at iRobot.com.
“We’re excited to work with Bona to provide customers with new and better ways to care for their hard floors,” said Keith Hartsfield, chief product officer at iRobot. “By combining iRobot’s expertise in robotic mopping with Bona’s expertise in hard floor cleaning solutions, we will deliver the most premium and effective robotic mopping experience possible to our customers.”
Powered by iRobot Genius Home Intelligence, the Braava jet m6 is the first robot mop from iRobot. Users attach their preferred cleaning pad – wet mopping or dry sweeping – and the robot gets to work. Using vSLAM navigation and Imprint Smart Mapping, the Braava jet m6 cleans in an efficient pattern while navigating around furniture, rugs, and other obstacles.
With intelligence provided by iRobot Genius, the Braava jet m6 is smart enough to know the kitchen from the dining room for customized cleaning jobs, and Keep Out Zones help it avoid sensitive areas like pet bowls or play areas. With Clean While I’m Away, the robot can automatically begin cleaning when you’ve left home and stop when you return.
Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner, which is ideal for any polyurethane finished wood floor, is gentle yet effective at removing dust, dirt, and grime to reveal a floor’s natural shine and beauty. Bona Hard-Surface Floor Cleaner solution is a rinse-free, streak-free formula that cleans hard-surface floors, including stone, tile, and laminate, by breaking up tough messes to leave floors clean and beautiful.
Both products recently received U.S. EPA Safer Choice Certification for sustainable formulations that are crafted with plant-derived ingredients, use water-based and biodegradable solutions, and are free of parabens, formaldehyde, ammonia, phthalates, and phosphates.
The Bona PowerPlus Microfiber Deep Cleaning Pad features a unique design with PowerLoop technology that lifts, traps, and absorbs dirt and grime, rather than pushing and scattering the mess around like conventional cleaning pads.
