With the creation of the carpet, the invention of the

carpet cleaning machine wasn’t far away. The very

first hand held 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 by the name of James Spangler came

up with his own invention – a vacuum cleaner that

he later sold to his cousin Hoover. As everyone

knows, Hoover has since became 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 was 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 are able to design wet cleanes that can

steam carpets and kill germs at the same time.

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


Right now, there are seven main types of vacuum

cleaners – the upright, canister, back pack style,

built in, robotic, hand held, and the wet/dry

vacuum cleaners. These different types of vacuum

cleaners are available in a variety of different

styles, sizes, and offer various voltage and

power sizes as well.

One of the most significant developments in

vacuums has been the invention of the very 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 number of 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.
