The first vacuum cleaners used bellows to blow dust into collector bags. They were developed in the 1860s. Motorized designs hit the markets at the turn of the 20th century, achieving commercial success in the first decade.
In 1860 Daniel Hess of West Union, Iowa designed a carpet sweeper with a rotating brush to capture the dust. A bellows created the suction.
An 1869 model, the “Whirlwind”, was invented in Chicago in 1868 by Ives W. McGaffey. It was a bulky hand cranked machine that was difficult to operate, yet it achieved some commercial success. [
In 1876 A similar cleaner was constructed by Melville R. Bissell of Grand Rapids, Michigan, whose company also manufactured carpet sweepers. Bissell remains a popular name, today.

In 1898 John S. Thurman of St. Louis, Missouri submitted a patent (US No. 634,042) for a “pneumatic carpet renovator”. This machine was to blow dust into a receptacle.
Cleaning services would bring such machines to their customers’ residences on a horse-drawn wagon as part of a door to door house cleaning convenience.
In 1901 American inventor David T. Kenney designed an elaborate 4,000 lb. steam engine driven system equipped with pipes and hoses inserted into all parts of a home or building.

The first portable vacuum cleaner aimed at the domestic market was designed in 1905 by Walter Griffiths.
Of note, in 1906 James B. Kirby created his first of a continuing line of vacuums. His “Domestic Cyclone” used water as a dirt filter.

Other early portable vacuum cleaner developers were William Henry Hoover in America and Electrolux in Sweden.
Hoover, Kirby, Bissell and Elecrolux are names that we know well today.
Fast forward to 1997. Electrolux of Sweden presented the Electrolux Trilobite, the first cordless robotic vacuum cleaner on the BBC-TV program Tomorrow’ World. It appeared on the consumer market in 2001.

Busy working peeps and especially working moms now have the automatic laundry washers and dryers, dish washers, crock pots and coffee pots that can be set to make the coffee without attendance.
