A 'Vacuum Cleaner' (a.k.a. Sweeper or Hoover) is a household appliance that creates a partial vacuum causing suction to remove dust, dirt and other objects from carpet, upholstery or flooring. The dirt is contained in a dust bag or chamber until disposal. There is question over who invented the first vacuum cleaner. Some of the people who invented or contributed to vacuums of one kind or another are: Daniel Hess, Ives W. McGaffey, Melville Bissell, John Thurman, William Hoover, James Spangler, Hubert Booth and others.
Prior to the vacuum, rugs and carpets were removed from the house and cleaned with a rug beater or other similar device. Over time vacuums have developed numerous features, attachments and specialized uses, including the robotic vacuum which can roam around the house cleaning by itself. There are many types and sizes of vacuums: handheld, upright, canister, stick vacuum, self propelled, robotic, wet/dry, whole house central vacuum, bagless, cyclonic, HEPA filtration, fireplace, backpack, cordless, outdoor, steamer, etc.
There are numerous attachments that may come with a vacuum: hard floor brush, carpeted floor brush, pet hair remover, window blind tool, dusting tool, crevice tool, upholstery tool, edge cleaner and others.
