Dyson Vacuums

Can you imagine owning rich, deep carpets in the days before the vacuum cleaner? If you were rich enough to own glorious rugs – perhaps from Persia, the rug capital of the world – then you often had a servant or two whose job it was to remove the rug wholly from your home and then beat it with a device that looked like a tennis racket in order to remove the accumulated dirt, dust and grime. This was, of course, a very inefficient way to take care of rugs, but for the safety and health of the family living in the house with the rug, it was the only way to make sure that the rug was cleaned. This is just one of many reasons why the advent of the Dyson vacuum was so important to modern domestic living.

How many of us today can afford servants? But how many of us have carpet or large rugs that would be hard to remove from the home? If you answered “almost none of us,” and “almost all of us,” respectively, then you would be absolutely right. If not for the advent of the Dyson vacuum, though, it would be very difficult for people these days to live in homes with wall to wall carpeting or rugs. Just imagine what would happen to people with allergies as they struggled to clean all that accumulated dust off of carpeting and rugs. Likely, many people would not have rugs or carpets in their homes, and the world would be a less colorful, warm, and energy efficient place to live in.

Luckily for carpet-obsessed people everywhere, Dyson vacuums comes to the rescue when it comes to a dirty rug. Dyson is a British company that manufactures appliances. It’s main product is the Dyson vacuum, and Dyson vacuums are so successful and popular that the term “Dyson” is almost synonymous with the term “vacuum cleaner.” Dyson was founded by James Dyson, a man who stumbled on the secret to the Dyson vacuum’s success after making one key realization about his current vacuum – that in order to restore suction the dust bag needed to be replaced even when it was not full. Dyson had previously observed sawdust being sucked into a cone at a sawmill. Putting these two innovations together, James Dyson was able to invent the Dyson vacuum.

Dyson vacuums were originally manufactured in James Dyson’s native England, but production has since moved to Malaysia. Dyson vacuums became so popular that another popular vacuum cleaner manufacturer, Hoover, was eventually sued for patent infringement after admitting that they had considered buying the Dyson vacuum patent from James Dyson simply to keep this excellent vacuum off the market and out of competition with their own vacuum cleaner models.

Dyson vacuums work by employing a process known as cyclonic separation. This process spins air at high speed, and allows dirt and dust to be thrown out of the airflow and collected in a bin instead of, as in traditional vacuums, a filter or a bag. Cyclone technology relies on the principle of centrifugal force in order to get a carpet or rug cleaner than ever. Now that we have Dyson vacuums, no longer do we have to rely on servants (and who has those?) in order to clean our carpets and rugs.

A popular joke about Dyson vacuum cleaners goes as follows. Two women pass one another on a country lane. One if smiling widely. The other woman asks what she has to be so happy about. The smiling woman replies, “I just bought a new Dyson vacuum cleaner and it really sucks!”
