A vacuum cleaners is a device that uses an air pump to create a partial vacuum to suck up dust and dirt, typically from floors, and optionally from other surfaces such as upholstery and draperies. The dirt is collected by either a dust bag or a cyclonic chamber, or a washable/reusable container or filter.

A vacuum cleaner is a device that uses suction to remove dirt and debris from surfaces, typically carpets, and floors. It typically consists of a motor, a filter, and one or more collection containers or bags. Some vacuum cleaners also have attachments, such as brushes and crevice tools, that can be used to clean specific areas or surfaces.
Different types of vacuum cleaner
There are several types of vacuum cleaners, including:
- Upright vacuums: These are the most common type of vacuum and are typically used for cleaning carpets. They have a motor and dustbin in the main body and a cleaning head at the bottom.
- Canister vacuums: These vacuums have a motor and dustbin in a separate unit (the canister) that is connected to the cleaning head by a hose. They are typically more maneuverable than upright vacuums and are good for cleaning bare floors and tight spaces.
- Stick vacuums: These are lightweight, cordless vacuums that are similar in design to upright vacuums but smaller. They are typically used for quick cleanups and are not as powerful as other types of vacuums.
- Handheld vacuums: These are small, portable vacuums that are typically used for quick cleanups and spot cleaning.
- Robot vacuums: These are autonomous vacuums that use sensors and navigation to clean a room. They can be programmed to clean specific areas at specific times and can return to their charging station when they need to recharge their batteries.
- Central vacuums: These are powerful vacuums that are installed in a home’s central ductwork and are operated by a remote control or wall-mounted switch.
- Wet/Dry vacuums: These vacuums can clean both dry and wet surfaces, and can be used for tasks such as cleaning up spills, unclogging drains, and even vacuuming water from swimming pools.
