The mopping robot comes with distinct cleaning modes- dry sweeping, wet mopping, and damp cleaning. Also with each cleaning mode, there are different cleaning pads designed specifically for each task.

The robot can clean rooms of up to 25 square meters in damp and dry modes, and up to 20 square meters in wet mode. The Jet uses color-coded disposable mop pads for each mode—blue for wet, orange for damp, white for dry—and detects via its pad reader what type of job to do.
• Wet Mopping Pad – triple-pass cleaning for dirt and stains on well-sealed floors
• Damp Sweeping Pad – double-pass cleaning for everyday dirt and dust on sealed wood floors, tile, and stone
• Dry Sweeping Pad – single-pass cleaning for dirt, dust and pet hair on hard floors
