  7. 7. Weaknesses of the Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner The sensors on the Mint floor cleaner are not perfect. It can still get confused around low lying areas of carpet and end up getting stuck, so it is better to roll back any rugs before starting to clean. You will have to plug it in to charge it up yourself as there is no automatic recharging station The Wet Mopping Mode is not as effective at scrubbing the floor as a human as it lacks the weight to push down very hard. Leaving inquisitive pets in the same room as the Mint 4200 can lead to increased cleaning times as it tries to maneuver around them, but this can be said of most cleaning robots today. You need to move the Navigation unit between rooms so that the Mint 4200 track correctly.
