List of vacuum cleaners

An early electric vacuum cleaner by the Electric Suction Sweeper Company, circa 1908, predecessor of the Hoover vacuum cleaner (1922).

This is a list of vacuum cleaners and vacuum cleaner manufacturers. 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 rigid cartridge, which may be emptied and reused. Vacuum cleaners are used in homes as well as in industry, and exist in a variety of sizes and models.

Robotic vacuum cleanersEdit

A 700 series Roomba

A robotic vacuum cleaner is an autonomous robotic vacuum cleaner that has intelligent programming and a limited vacuum cleaning system. Some designs use spinning brushes to reach tight corners. Others combine a number of cleaning features (mopping, UV sterilization, etc.) simultaneous to vacuuming, thus rendering the machine into more than just a robot "vacuum" cleaner.

Manufacturers and specific models include:

Bagged vacuum cleanersEdit

  • Hoover Windtunnel Supreme

Bagless vacuum cleanersEdit

  • Shark Navigator

Vacuum cleaner manufacturersEdit

An Electrolux vacuum cleaner
A Numatic International Henry-brand vacuum cleaner
