With the creation of the carpet, the invention of the carpet cleaning machine wasn’t far away. The very first handheld carpet cleaner was designed and tested in Chicago in 1860, while the first power-operated vacuum cleaner was invented in the 1900s by Cecil Booth.
Around the same time Cecil Booth finished his invention, a man named James Spangler came up with his invention – a vacuum cleaner that he later sold to his cousin Hoover. As everyone knows, Hoover has since become one of the most dominant names in the world of vacuum cleaners and is certainly one of the most popular household names in the world.
For many housewives, the vacuum cleaner has been deemed a blessing, as it helped to keep the house clean in a fraction of the time. From the beginning, vacuum cleaners were only able to suck up dust and dirt, although with modern technology these days, inventors can design wet cleaners that can steam carpets and kill germs, at the same time.
A carpet is capable of covering the floor of a house, flat, or bungalow and keeping people’s feet warm in the winter. Years ago, people needed to sweep their floors or carpets, but with the invention of the vacuum cleaner, people could easily detract the dust and dirt from their carpets with less effort. It was also determined that businesses, corporations, and apartments would need someone to clean their carpets as well, so the invention of the commercial carpet cleaner wasn’t far away.
Vacuum cleaners operate by using a pump system. The pumping system will suck up the air from a hose, which will, in turn, suck up the dirt and dust from anything that stands in front of the house opening. On the inside, the vacuum cleaner is a filtering system that will collect the dust and dirt that can later be placed outside in the garbage.
Right now, there are seven main types of vacuum cleaners – the upright, canister, back pack style, built-in, robotic, handheld, and wet/dry vacuum cleaners. These different types of vacuum cleaners are available in a variety of different styles and sizes that offer various voltage and power sizes as well.
One of the most significant developments in vacuums has been the invention of the popular cyclone carpet cleaner. Unlike the previous vacuum cleaners, the cyclone collects dirt and dust in a large cylinder. The cyclone operates using a central air force and several filters. The filter will filter the dust and dirt into stages so that the air being sucked up into the cylinder can be cleaned then released back into the air through a central outlet.
