This is our verdict of the Tineco Floor One S3 based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
The Tineco Floor One S3 is a smart cordless vacuum that can also mop. It is equipped with various features, such as the smart suction and water flow control, the iLoop smart sensor, app integration, self-clean, and mopping function that make it a powerful model.
The iLoop smart sensor allows it to detect dirt on the floor and automatically adjust the suction power and water flow to clean more efficiently. It only increases the suction power when it detects larger clumps of dirt and returns back to normal after picking them up. Therefore, the 35 minutes battery life of the Tineco Floor One S3 can vary depending on the amount of dirt your house tends to accumulate. The more time the cordless vacuum spends on the higher suction power, the faster it will drain the battery.
There is a colorful band around the LED display that turns red when it detects dirt and returns back to blue when the floor is clean. This guarantees that the vacuum is doing its job well.
The Tineco Floor One S3 is one of the few cordless vacuums that can also function as a mop. Because it can vacuum and mop at the same time, it is highly convenient for those who have busy schedules because it saves time and energy. It can also automatically stop the water flow in the mop when you put it upright. This is a great feature because it prevents water leakage. With the help of the cleaning solution that comes in the box, it can efficiently remove dried stains, mud, slimy dirt, and grease.
When you mop a very dirty floor, the mopping pad usually gets stained, which can be frustrating to try to remove. However, with the Tineco Floor One S3, you won’t have to go to such lengths because it comes with a self-cleaning feature. With just one touch, it will automatically clean the roller brush for about five minutes and remove the stains.
You can connect the Tineco Floor One S3 to the app where you can see the real-time performance monitoring of the cordless vacuum. However, the app is not very useful for everyday cleaning because that same information can be found on the LED display. The display shows the battery percentage, the strength of the Wi-Fi, the suction power indicator, and other signs of malfunctions, hair tangles, and other smart features.
The Tineco Floor One S3’s dust bin is located on the lower part. This sets it apart from other cordless vacuums, such as the Tineco PURE ONE S12, whose dust bins are located near the handle. The bulky dust bin prevents the Tineco Floor One S3 from cleaning in small areas. Therefore, it won’t be able to fit in tight spaces or under low-lying furniture.
Overall, the Tineco Floor One S3 is an excellent cordless vacuum for those who have mostly hard floors. The mopping function, iLoop sensor, and self-cleaning feature make this expensive model a worthwhile purchase.
