What is a Vacuum Cleaner?
A vacuum cleaner is an electrical appliance used to clean furniture, floors, narrow spaces in homes where hands cannot reach without tugging and pulling the objects and soft articles like cushions, mattresses etc. It contains an air pump that creates a vacuum to suck up dirt and dust from the furniture, floors or any other object that prone to get spoilt by dust and dirt. The dust is collected in a dust-bag which can be emptied in a dustbin later. Vacuum cleaners are used in homes as well as in industries, corporates, hospitals to get a perfectly dust free environment. Though domestic vacuum cleaners are small and portable, the vacuum cleaners used in the industries are a bit bulky and of high power. They may contain a dust-bag or may not. Few are hand held while others are mounted on holders. But in anyway, they give you a clean and dust free home, safe for you and your kids.
