Last year me and my husband went for a trip to near the sea; we spent almost 3 weeks over there; though all the windows and doors were shut that whole period, but when we came back, we were like stress-out seeing the dust level on the floor and other furniture. Till then I did not have any Vacuum Cleaner at my place; as I live in a secluded and private property where, nearby, no construction takes place. We hardly see dust and dirt flotation around us. So neither I nor my husband felt any necessity for a vacuum cleaner ever. But that moment, we desperately felt for such a product and rushed for an online purchase; over 2 days I got my cleaning-partner, now life seems really tougher and harder without my cleaning-master, my Vacuum Cleaner.
Since I have never felt the necessity of this sort of machine, so I never care much to Google about it. But that time after cleaning all the dirt & dust, I thought to navigate bit in the internet about it.
Vacuum cleaner was first developed in 1860’s by Daniel Hess of West Union, Iowa. It was basically a carper sweeper that gathered dust with a rotating brush and a bellow was used to gather that dust out. Later, in 1869, a commercial vacuum cleaner stepped-into the market, which basically was a bulky device with a belt driven fan cranked by hand, a bit awkward to operate, though got a mixed response.
Since then, modified device is swiping the market one by one. More and more, research & development is taking place, which is bringing competition among the marketers to provide best of best machine on the customer hand.

As I told you I got my one from online, actually the largest online store amazone.com. Since I am a job holder I make hardly time to stores. So if you are having a tough schedule like mine, you easily get yours from there also, or else you can visit any stores or market with your friend and relatives or third party.
Though it cleans other but it also need to be cleaned and maintained time to time. Usually it doesn’t requires heavy maintenance, but if you get yourself a electric one, check out the inisde motor time to time. Some of the cleaners offer changing its parts, so if you think the brush and the bin needs to be replaced, don’t be late; better you get yourself a new pair of brush and bag, else your whole machine can be damaged for life.
I think after reading it, you are surely feeling for a clean master for yourself. Like me get one for you and go on weekend for weeks and enjoy best of yourself as you will be tension free of cleaning the dust-pile on your return!
