vacuum cleaner sampleIn today’s world, we humans are surrounded by blessings, one such blessing is called the vacuum cleaner or hoover or suction cleaner. It has turned out to be a blessing to clean carpets and couches and even floor over time. It serves a great purpose for the people who have a maid issue. There is no hassle of quarrelling with the maid about inefficient work or salary or the days that she didn’t feel like coming and decided to take a leave without your permission.

The houses where there is carpeting on the floor, a vacuum cleaner is a must. You can’t even imagine the amount of dust and germs a carpet can harbour. All the shoes with all the disgusting dirt of the outside world walk on those carpets.  

Vacuum cleaners are obviously helpful in many industries. They are used in hotels, airports, hospitals, etc but in this blog, we will be discussing the role of vacuum cleaners for homes only.

Vacuum cleaners for homes

Just like how we talked about the carpets earlier. How they harbour immense dirt in them and look all innocent. The only way to not waste much time and do a hassle-free job is a vacuum cleaner. For homes which are situated in hilly areas where there is constant winter all year long, they have carpeted floors. The only way to clean the floors there is a vacuum cleaner.

Vacuum cleaners have found other uses also, in picking up the immensely irritating bread crumbs or dirt of that order of size.

Let us all thank Hubert Cecil Booth for his awesome invention – the vacuum cleaner. He invented it in 1901. And ever since then, it’s a must for any western household.

It is a device that sucks out dust by creating a partial vacuum. It is also known as suction cleaner or Hoover in countries like the UK and Ireland. It is highly helpful for cleaning carpets and floors but vacuum cleaners have found various other uses over time.

Not only that, as mentioned above, it saves you from the drama of maids. Their incompetence and non-obedience eventually affect a person’s mental health. So it is important to have a vacuum cleaner.

You may buy a mini one, which can work for couches, beds, cars, kitchens, etc.

Some vacuum cleaners even suck wet waste!!
