There are a lot of appliances coming to CES 2020, the largest trade show in the world, and among them are new innovations for everyday cleaning.

That is what LG Electronics is bringing to the show with its cord-free products with mopping capabilities.

The CordZero ThinQ A9 stick vacuum and CordZero ThinQ robotic mop will debut at the show. The robotic mop contains dual spin mops with the company’s Dual Eye technology, which includes a camera to detect and recognize its surroundings to avoid collisions with furniture and pets. Users can also designate through an accompanying app areas of the house to clean.

The A9 with power drive mop can switch from a vacuum to a mop with a power drive nozzle to remove dust from carpets and hard floors. The same motor mops the floor with an attachment. The appliance is wireless but contains two battery packs for extended use. It also has a charging stand and a place for accessories.

The vacuums can connect to Wi-Fi and can notify homeowners through the app when an area has been cleaned or areas of the home that are in need of mopping or vacuuming.

CES 2020 takes place Jan. 7-10 in Las Vegas.
