Cordless Vacuum Cleaners Explained Print E-mail
No home is complete without a vacuum cleaner.  Virtually every North American household has one of these modern marvels, although there really isn't anything modern about them.

The first vacuum cleaner was invented near the end of the 19th century, but the first commercial vacuum cleaner wasn't patented until the beginning of the 20th  century.  An English engineer named Cecil Booth filed created the device after taking a train ride.  Booth noticed that there was a device on the train that was used to blow dust off of the chairs, and realized that it would be much more effective to have a device that would absorb the dust, rather than simply blowing it around.

Since that initial machine was invented, more than 100 years have passed.  A series of technological advancements have created the must-have accessories that no home, office or manufacturing facility can be without.  Over time, vacuums were adapted to perform various functions and meet particular customer demands.  Technology has even brought us the first robotic vacuum cleaner.  

Regardless of the function, the simplicity behind vacuum cleaners remained the same.  Users would simply plug the machine into the wall, and watch the household debris virtually disappear.  It was a most practical, even magical, appliance.  But, how much better could a vacuum cleaner be, if there were no cord to bother with?  A recent trend in home appliances has created a market surge of cordless vacuum cleaners.  With no cord holding you back, a modern homemaker could reach the darkest corners of the home with one fell swoop.  

The first cordless vacuum cleaners were designed for movement, but there was much more to the form than there was in the function.  At that time, battery technology was still largely underdeveloped.  Early cordless vacuums were very heavy, and the power was short-lived.  And so, the popularity of the cordless vacuum cleaner waned.  

Thanks to advanced battery technology, cordless vacuum cleaners are much more powerful, and their energy source last longer.  The units are lighter and much more efficient.  In fact, every element of the vacuum system has been improved, from the airflow and filtration system, to the lift and basic design.  Unfortunately, many consumers still carry images of those weak and cumbersome early cordless vacuum cleaner designs, and are hesitant to try these new and vastly improved models.  

Modern cordless vacuum cleaners make it easy to tidy almost any space.  Their small size is perfect for cleaning under furniture, on shelves and even in the car where a regular corded vacuum would just not do the job.  A cordless vacuum cleaner is perfect for anyone with a small living space or light cleaning duties.

Cordless vacuum cleaners are available at most department stores and hardware stores.  There are many models available, so it's a good idea to shop around to find the best quality and price.  Check the Internet for links to cordless vacuum manufacturers, and consult buyer forums for product reviews.  

Household vacuum cleaners have come a long way since Cecil Booth applied for patent.  Chances are, he'd agree that a cordless vacuum cleaner is a smart investment, no strings attached.
