This model has sensor technology that detects wet and dry messes and adjusts its water flow and suction power accordingly, so no matter what type of mess you are dealing with, it ensures it is completely removed.

Investing in a wet-dry vacuum has been a transformational buy for me. It has made deep cleaning floors significantly easier. 

For all the reasons to upgrade to a wet-dry vacuum, the benefits that stand out the most to me are the ease with which it can clean up liquid spills (which, as a clumsy person, I find extremely beneficial), and its quick drying mode which can reduce water residue and drying times after cleaning. 

The TAB T9 Pro Cordless Wet Dry Vacuum Cleaner also has a self-cleaning function that automatically flushes the inner tubing and brushes, meaning minimal maintenance is needed to keep it working perfectly. All you need to do is empty the water tank after water use!
