vacuums are one of the most recognizable central vacuums in
America. Hoover central vacuums now feature a new "Hush" sound
reducing material to reduce motor noise. Hoover central vacuums
use strong American made Lamb Ametek motors and offer a "self
shed" cyclonic filtration. 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
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.
Boss Hoover placed a small ad in the Saturday Evening Post
offering 10 days free use of a Hoover suction sweeper to anyone
who wrote and requested it. Instead of sending the cleaner
directly to the potential customer, he chose a reputable store
in each city that customers could purchase from. He allowed
store managers to keep any commission from a resulting sale, and
then offered the store the opportunity to become a Hoover vacuum
dealer. This laid the groundwork for a national dealer network
which, to this day, continues to be an important channel of
distribution for Hoover products.
Meanwhile, engineers were designing new and improved methods of
cleaning carpet. One of their most noteworthy innovations was
the beater bar, introduced in 1926, which was the basis for one
of the most memorable advertising slogans in history: "It beats,
as it sweeps, as it cleans." Aided by strong suction, the metal
bar gently tapped the carpet to loosen deeply embedded dirt, as
a bristle brush rapidly swept dirt up and out of the carpet.
Since then, the beater bar has gone through many tweaks and
refinements and is still utilized in most Hoover vacuum cleaners
today. Countless other "firsts" have been developed by Hoover
engineers over the years to give consumers the most innovative
and convenient features available. These include the disposable
paper bag, the vacuum cleaner headlight, the self-propelled
feature and the side-mounted hose feature.
