A vacuum cleaner, also known as a hoover (a genericized trademark) or sweeper and commonly referred to simply as a vacuum, is a device that uses an air pump to create a partial vacuum to suck up dust and dirt, usually from floors. The dirt is collected by either a dustbag or a cyclone for later disposal.
