A vacuum cleaner, also known as a hoover, is an appliance that uses an electric fan to create a partial 'vacuum' and suck up dust from surfaces. This dust and dirt, collected in a removable housing or bag, can then be disposed off easily. Vacuum cleaners in modern times have become more of a necessity rather than a luxury as they help clean floors, carpets and upholstery quickly and with less effort compared to sweeps, brooms or besoms (jharoo). Also, since the dust is collected inside the vacuum cleaner, it prevents it from spreading around other surfaces.
