Origin of vacuum cleaner:
vacuum, vacuum cleaner(noun)
an electrical home appliance that cleans by suction
A domestic or industrial mobile machine for cleaning floors and similar surfaces that draws dust and other particles into a container (often a bag) by the suction created by an electric motor driving a fan.
A vacuum cleaner is a device that uses an air pump to create a partial vacuum to suck up dust and dirt, usually from floors, and optionally from other surfaces as well. The dirt is collected by either a dustbag or a cyclone for later disposal. Vacuum cleaners, which are used in homes as well as in industry, exist in a variety of sizes and models— small battery-operated hand-held devices, domestic central vacuum cleaners, huge stationary industrial appliances that can handle several hundred litres of dust before being emptied, and self-propelled vacuum trucks for recovery of large spills or removal of contaminated soil.
