The Invention of Carpet Cleaners

May 5, 2008
First came the carpets and then the carpet cleaners were invented in 1860 in Chicago. The first carpet cleaner ever made was a hand held and a power operated vacuum was invented shortly thereafter by Cecil Booth in the 1900's.

About the time that Cecil Booth had finished his invention, there was a man by the name of James Spangler that was able to come up with his very own invention that was a vacuum cleaner. He later sold the vacuum cleaner to Hoover, who was his cousin. Since then, as everyone probably already knows, Hoover has become a dominant name in the vacuum cleaner world and Hoover is also among the most popular household names in the entire world as well.

Housewives were really happy with the vacuum cleaner because it made house cleaning less of a chore. The very first models of vacuum cleaners could only pick up dust and dirt. But today, the vacuum cleaners come in different models with a variety of features like wet cleaners that steam carpets and kill germs too.

Carpets have so many uses like blanketing a bare floor of a room and helping to keep your feet warm in the winter. In the beginning, people had to sweep the carpet in order to get it clean. Now, this is not an issue and in no time the dust and dirt can quickly be picked up. Later on when offices and apartment buildings were built, they then realized a need to invent an industrial vacuum cleaner.

The vacuum cleaner possesses a pump system and that is what allows it to operate. The pump system works by sucking up the air from the hose, which in turns sucks up the dust and dirt from anything that stands out in the hoses opening. In the inside of the vacuum cleaner, you will find a filtering system that has the ability to collect dirt and dust that can later be taken out and placed in the garbage.

Canister, robotic, hand held and wet/dry are just a few different models of vacuum cleaners that are available and can be purchased in any department store.

Your requirements will determine what kind of vacuum cleaner to purchase. With many styles, power sizes and voltages available, the actual task of carpet cleaning seems to be effortless.

The cyclone carpet cleaner is considered to be one of the rather significant developments concerning vacuums that have been invented. The cyclone vacuum unlike all of the previous vacuum cleaners collects dust and dirt in the large cylinder. The cyclone is able to use a central air force as well as a number of filters. The filter works to filter the dirt and dust into stages, so that the air that is being sucked up into the actual cylinder can then be cleaned and released back out into the air which is done through a central outlet.
