The housewife's and house husbands favourite the vacuum cleaner evolved from the carpet sweeper or manual vacuum cleaners. The first manual vacuum cleaner using bellows, were developed in the 1860s. The first motorized vacuum cleaner designs appeared at the turn of the 20th century. An early hand-pumped vacuum cleaner and a carpet sweeper was invented by Daniel Hess in 1860 that gathered dust with a rotating brush and a bellows for generating suction. Another early model was the "Whirlwind", invented in 1868 by Ives McGaffey. The big bulky device worked with a belt driven fan cranked by hand that made it difficult to operate, although it was commercially marketed with mixed success.
In 1906 James B. Kirby developed his first of many vacuum cleaners called the "Domestic Cyclone" It used water for dirt separation. He held over 60 patents on everything from a wringer-less washing machine to ironing and dry cleaning equipment. Kirby vacuum cleaners are considered one of the best on the market today.
We'll I'm sure we have all heard the name Hoover! William Henry Hoover founded the company that in 1922 was renamed the Hoover Company. Their first vacuum cleaner was the 1908 Model O, which sold for $60. Subsequent innovations included the beater bar in 1919, disposal filter bags in the 1920s, and an upright vacuum cleaner in 1926. To this day most of us still call our vacuum cleaner a Hoover. This was due to the saturation of the brand with a Hoover vacuum cleaner appearing in nearly every household.
Swedish company Electrolux launched the innovative vacuum cleaner in 1921 that was designed to lie on the floor on two thin metal runners. This innovation, conceived by Electrolux founder Axel Wenner-Gren, became a standard feature on generations of future vacuum cleaners. There is a recorded example of a 1930s Electrolux vacuum cleaner surviving in use for over 70 years, finally breaking in 2008. For many years after their introduction, vacuum cleaners remained a luxury item, but after the Second World War, they became common among the middle classes. Vacuum cleaners tend to be more common in Western countries because in most other parts of the world, wall-to-wall carpeting is uncommon and homes have tile or hardwood floors, which are easily swept, wiped or mopped manually without power assist.
The Dyson DC07 upright cyclonic vacuum cleaner using centrifugal force to separate dust and particles from the air flowing through the cylindrical collection vessel was a great invention as you don't need any bags. A new spin (pardon the pun) on the humble vacuum cleaner which has proved very successful throughout Europe and with other models like the Dyson ball and cordless models, the Dyson brand has become a household name even though they can be a bit pricey. You never know but one day we might be saying "I'm just going to Dyson the carpet".
In 2004 a British company released Airider, a hovering vacuum cleaner that floats on a cushion of air. It has claimed to be light-weight and easier to manoeuvre, although it is not the first vacuum cleaner to do this — the Hoover Constellation pre-dated it by at least 35 years.
