The Hoover story begins in 1907. Murray Spangler, an inventor who worked nights as a janitor, had an asthma problem. He called upon his inventor's creativity to find a solution to the dust that aggravated his asthma as he swept up at night. Spangler gathered a tin soap box, a fan, a sateen pillow case and a broom handle, and assembled an odd-looking, cumbersome contraption that managed to pull the dust away from the air he breathed. He quickly realized that this "suction sweeper," as he called it, had enormous sales potential, and he began seeking financial backing. W.H. "Boss" Hoover, owner of a leather goods manufacturing shop, bought the patent from Spangler in 1908, retained him as a partner, and soon had six employees assembling six units a day in a corner of the leather goods shop. Now that's a humble beginning.
The Hoover Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Canister provides no loss of suction performance. It's multi-cyclonic cleaning system with a Hepa media filter cleans as good as the first time, every time. The bagless design means there is no need to worrying about constantly buying and replacing your bags, and the included filter can be easily rinsed in your sink to increase its effectiveness and longevity. The motorized swiveling power nozzle brushroll loosens and lifts out deep down dirt while easy to maneuver and cleans right up to your baseboards. The extendable telescoping want allows for an extended cleaning surface when trying to vacuum tough to reach areas, such as under furniture or in tight corners. The convenient cord rewind lets you store your cord neatly inside the vacuum. The included dusting brush for detailed cleaning is stored right under the handle, so it is always easy to reach and there when you need it. The brushroll controls are conveniently located right where they should be- at your fingertips. Available at AJ Madison.
