W. H. Hoover’s name has long been identified with vacuum cleaners—in Britain, “Hoovering” is common slang for using the vacuum. But Hoover didn’t come up with the product that made him famous. Instead, the credit for Hoover’s original motorized vacuum model goes to a janitor named Murray Spangler, who had been looking for a way to eliminate the dust that aggravated his asthma. In 1908, a year after Spangler’s invention, Hoover bought the patent and brought Spangler aboard, and they quickly grew from there. The device has grown a long way from its original—called a “suction sweeper” and made out of a tin soap box, a fan, a sateen pillow case, and a broom handle. But Hoover has never stopped prioritizing floor care, offering a variety of cleaning solutions, including vacuums and carpet and hard-floor cleaners.
This is my 2nd refurbished Hoover and my feedback is nothing but positive about both purchases. My 1st was a Hoover Linx Cordless, I bought it approx 2 years ago and it's still going strong. The only reason I recently bought the Hoover Cruise Cordless is bc the price was way too good to pass up! It's so powerful and versatile and now I am able to have one vacuum upstairs and one downstairs!
