That was the originial slogan for the Hoover company back in 1912. The Hoover Company started out as an floor care manufacturer based in North Canton, Ohio but also became a major player in electric vacuum cleaner industryover in the the United Kingdom for most of the early-and-mid-20th century.
The history behind the first upright vacuum cleaner is very interested. As with most inventions this vacuum cleaner was born out of necessarity. In 1907 James Spangler, a department store janitor who suffered from asthma attacks decided to try and modify his the carpet sweeper he was using at work.
What he ended up doing was creating a basic suction-sweeper, first by adapting his existing carpet-sweeper with an electric fan motor, then creating his own prototype from a soap box, electric motor, broom handle, and pillow case. After refining the design and being granted a patent, he set about producing the ‘Electric Suction Sweeper’ himself. He was aided by his son and his daughter, production was slow; completing just 2-3 machines a week.
In 1908 he sold his patent to the Hoover company…in 1926, Hoover perfected the ‘beater bar’; a metal bar attached to the rotating brush-roll, situated in the floor nozzle cavity of the upright vacuum cleaner. In 1936, Hoover filed another significant patent – this time for a new self-propelling mechanism for vacuum cleaners and from there, well the rest is history… (source)
