The Xiaomi Deerma mop comes as a handheld mop without any need of electricity. The mop is made by taking modern home into consideration and is very convenient to use by any one. Clearly, the electric sweeper of the market “did not go” because of the rather high price. So Xiaomi decided to go otherwise by creating a simple kind of mop. We will equip it with a reservoir for water or another liquid for washing the floors.

PACKING AND PACKAGING
The Xiaomi Deerma mop comes arrived in a cardboard box. Everything kept well and safe from any kind of transport mishap. The delivery and was through EMS, anyway, very much patted the road parcel.
No protection, except for cardboard packaging and cellophane bags there. Which is rather strange, knowing the approach of Xiaomi to packaging. Usually Xiaomi ship their with utmost care to protect them.
Instructions to the mop everything is written in Chinese language. The device is really simple to use so not that much need of Instructions.
Warranty card.is also there in Chinese.
Plastic container stores water or other liquid for washing floors. The volume is around 350 milliliters. To clean the house 150 squares you will need around one and a half containers of liquid. However, it all depends on the cleanliness of the floor and the person who cleans it. Mostly it depends upon the person who is cleaning. If someone elder from home is cleaning then definitely it’s going to take fewer resources but if some child gets the task then definitely he will use much water.
A non spill Cork to prevent any water from leakage.
Inside it comes with a spring-loaded valve and a silicone gasket.
The water does not pour out by itself, so you can leave bottle with the full capacity. And do not worry that the fluid will be on the floor after a while when you left it all alone.
The Xiaomi Deerma mop squeegee handle consists of two parts. The upper part comes with a trigger for filling liquid in the container through the bottom of the handle.
After when you pull the trigger, the piston slides out slightly. It presses the piston at the bottom and through the nozzle, the liquid splashes on the surface.
The lower part consists of a metal pipe with a liquid feeder connected to it.
Nozzle for fan fluid supply.
On the reverse side is a sticker with characteristics and a warranty seal.
The connection allows rotating the surface relative to the pipe by 90 degrees in different directions. It allows smooth movement of the mop and helps in cleaning more effectively and effortlessly.
On the back of the platform are 8 sites for “stickers.” They help by holding the mop cloth for better cleaning.
Such hooks, for which the soft fabric of “cloth” “sticks.”
At the end of the pipe, two plastic ears for fastening the platform with a rag.
Ears very firmly hold the platform.
For complete assembly, the bottom of the squeegee should be inserted into the top. While the plastic tab closes and it will be almost impossible to separate them from each other.
Inside the plastic reservoir holder, you can find a large “syringe,” which pushes out a portion of water under pressure from the rod inside the handle. About 1 meter of splashing fan spray, as always exaggerated, but at 50 centimeters in front of him, spray. Moreover, in general, I can say that it is enough to clean the house thoroughly.
To prevent cranking and for precise positioning of the tongue, there is such a plastic “lock”.
To conceal the junction, and a little extra protection, there is a plastic cap on the top that must be put on the junction.
As a result, the Xiaomi Deerma mop assembled structure looks quite “monolithic,” and if you do not know that it is demountable, it is not noticeable either.
The flexible platform is rather thin, which allows you to quickly “crawl” under the door, cabinet and other nightstands.
The cloth itself, although it looks like a microfiber, but much denser.
The edges are perfect and, threads do not stick out.
On the back of the soft fabric, which is very cool while “sticking” to the platform.
A rag is a little more than a platform, so it is not difficult to get in the right way. The only drawback is to shoot it. Well, it was impossible to make a “tongue,” as in a more expensive version of the mop.
The height of the mop from the floor is 125 centimeters.
But in this mop the height is not the main thing, but more importantly the maximum “thickness”, which is 8.5 centimeters. Therefore, under low sofas or bedside tables, it does not get through. A maximum of 18 centimeters (half the length of the platform with a rag)
Here everything, as well as usual, not clever, mops. Pour water, rinse the rag, and start backwardly moving the apartment, not forgetting to pull the trigger.
Under the doors of the cabinet and the interior doors, too, passes without problems.
A simple turn of the handle around the axis can easily be removed in any corners.
And if you need to make a smoke break or just put a mop on the “parking”, then it’s banal to lean on the wall and that’s it.
The “microfiber” cloth perfectly copes with sand, wool, and other dust. Dirt does not burst, it is wiping and absorbing excess water from the floor.
After each room, depending on the pollution, like a normal rag, I recommend washing. Sand, wool, the remains of peanuts.
Unlike the electric floor, the whole surface of the cloth works here, not just the edges. And by the way, the animal’s wool, surprisingly, delays very well.
Verdict Xiaomi Deerma mop
The main disadvantages here are two, one is the lack of additional rags in the kit, you will have to buy separately with time. The second will be a minus for owners of low sofas, beds, etc. If a “simple” mop, in the style of a rag on a stick, crawls through, then this novelty, because of the water tank below, will not pass 8,5 centimeters. I have no such low furniture at home, and the cloth has been in operation for almost 2 months and almost like new. If you take into account the price, then after going to the store, a normal mop with a normal, not a foil, handle stand will be little cheaper. With a water tank, I did not find a mop in a regular store.
