When it was time for my firstborn to start solids, I did weeks of research on the best feeding methods. I decided we would let him try self feeding, which supposedly would help him further develop his fine motor skills and encourage independence. And it honestly probably worked too well considering it’s been two years since then and this kid rarely lets me help him do anything (cue the “I do myself, mom!”).
Now that we’re on our second LO, I knew I wanted to do self feeding again with her. But something I must have conveniently forgotten about letting babies stuff food in their mouths is… how often they miss. And when those adorable, chubby, filthy hands miss their mouths, where does the food go? The floor.
One thing about me? I HATE cleaning. So when Roborock reached out and asked for our honest review of their brand new Dyad Pro Wet/Dry Vacuum, I near literally jumped at the chance.
See, we used to have a dog when my son was learning to eat. And that dog made sure our floors were absolutely spotless before dinner was even over. But now that pup is in a better home (no really, she lives with a retired family friend that needed a faithful companion), meaning that mom is now in charge of cleaning baby food spills. And one thing about me? I HATE cleaning. Some people find cleaning therapeutic, but I am not one of those people. So when Roborock reached out to us and asked for our honest review of their brand new Dyad Pro Wet/Dry Vacuum, I near literally jumped at the chance. So here it is, a lazy mom’s firsthand account of the Roborock Dyad Pro Wet/Dry Vacuum.
Setting Up the Roborock Dyad Pro Wet/Dry Vacuum
OK, let’s get to the good stuff right off the bat. The short answer to whether or not I think the Roborock Dyad Pro Wet/Dry vacuum is worth the money is a resounding YES. But if you’re like me and need a more detailed explanation, then let’s get into it.
Starting with my unboxing and set-up experience, I was pleasantly surprised by how simple it was to put together. I usually wait for my husband to put together gadgets for me, but I was too excited and decided to take a shot at it.
The Dyad Pro also has an app that allows you to change the modes on the vacuum and the self cleaning station, which is really helpful.
It took me about 10 minutes to attach the handle and set up the charging/self cleaning station. The vacuum has three different roller brushes, a clean water tank, dirty water tank, and detergent compartment. It came with an extra filter and a handy brush for easy maintenance that can be stored in the self cleaning station. The Dyad Pro also has an app (another bonus point for me, I love app controlled tech), and that took maybe five more minutes to set up through WiFi. The app allows you to change the modes on the vacuum and the self cleaning station, which is really helpful.
How the Dyad Pro Really Cleans
Once miss Dyad Pro was nice and charged–and my kids were napping–I took her out for an uninterrupted spin around the house. After thoroughly reading the instructions, I understood the vacuum had a few modes: auto, max, floor drying, and eco. I left it on auto mode and it began effortlessly vacuuming up the miscellaneous dust, dirt, and cat hair in our living room. I also tried eco mode and it still picked up the tiniest specs. But let’s be honest, we have laminate wood floors so that was the easy task. The real test was going to be dinner time with my messy 9-month-old and 2.5-year-old.
I was pretty nervous when I saw [my daughter] toss half her paella on the floor. But the Roborock Dyad Pro picked up every last crum, no matter how wet or mushy.
Once dinner time rolled around, it was Dyad Pro’s time to shine. I didn’t make it easy on the vacuum either and picked an especially messy meal for my daughter. Not gonna lie, I will say I was pretty nervous when I saw her toss half her paella on the floor. But the Roborock Dyad Pro proved my concerns wrong almost immediately. It picked up every last crum off the floor, no matter how wet or mushy. And if you don’t believe me, see for yourself in the video below:
My Final Thoughts
I know, right?! And that’s seriously not even the best part. I’ll be totally transparent, I was in such disbelief that I even added more of my baby daughter’s leftover dinner on the floor to see if the Dyad Pro would pick it up too, and it sure did. I know your next question is, “but where does all that gunk go?!” Well, the dirty water tank stores all of it and can be easily rinsed out. In fact, even though the Dyad Pro can go multiple uses without needing thorough maintenance, I deep cleaned it anyway just to see how simple it would be.
The short answer to whether or not I think the Roborock Dyad Pro Wet/Dry vacuum is worth the money is a resounding YES.
First, I placed it back on the cleaning station, activated the self cleaning mode by the touch a button (or you can use the app), and watched the magic work. The vacuum automatically began to rinse the roller brushes with the help of the double brush cleaners within the docking base. Then, it began the drying mode–a super cool addition in this model. After it finished, I disassembled the roller brushes with ease, lifted the cleaning head, and used the provided brush to clear out any remaining food (there were like two peas left). Roborock suggests that this level of maintenance be performed every two to four weeks for the roller brushes, once a month for the cleaning head, and as needed for the charging dock. To me, that feels pretty manageable considering how quick it was thanks to the Dyad Pro’s self cleaning feature!
The Dyad Pro is heaven sent for a mom like me that truly detests cleaning. And even moms that do enjoy tidying up, you’ll be in such awe of how thorough this wet vacuum is. This was so convenient and painless–I could not recommend it enough! The self-cleaning feature is really what puts it over the top for me.
I’ll leave you with this quick tidbit: this morning my darling daughter knocked over an entire glass of iced coffee on our wood floors, and the Roborock Dyad Pro mopped every last drop in less than 60 seconds. Think on that, my friend 😉
