Committed to making the home a healthier and safer place, LG offers a number of Gold-certified solutions for a better life, including residential air conditioner models and the LG DUAL Vane system air conditioner. The latest LG air solution products to have met UL’s strictest standards for volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, CordZero vacuums provide excellent cleaning performance without negatively impacting air quality in the home. Leveraging LG’s comprehensive filtration system, CordZero vacuums effectively remove dust from the indoor environment and, just as importantly, prevent it from reentering.

VOC emissions can cause a variety of health complications and can be particularly harmful to young children and the elderly. Gold is the highest grade achievable in UL’s certification program, confirming that a product generates low VOC emissions[2], making indoor spaces safer and more comfortable for everyone.

Tested and verified as low-VOC products, both the LG CordZeroThinQ A9 Kompressor cordless stick vacuum cleaner and CordZero R9 robot vacuum are equipped with LG’s state-of-the-art filtration system. Helping create a cleaner, more pleasant living space, the system employs the Metal Dust Filter, Pre-Filter and Fine Dust Filter, as well as LG’s Turbo Cyclone™ technology, to separate and filter dust particles sucked into the vacuums to help prevent re-emission. What’s more, as both vacuum cleaners belong to the company’s Upgradeable Appliance lineup, users can easily add convenient, new functions via the LG ThinQ™ app.

Serving as a docking station for LG CordZero stick vacuums, the innovative All-in-One Tower features an antibacterial dust bag, a removable and washable motor protection filters, , and a highly efficient automated dustbin-emptying system that prevents fine dust particles from escaping. Space-saving and easy to use, the All-in-One Tower also provides quick charging and hassle-free storage for vacuum accessories.
