In the year 1860, the first vacuum cleaner was invented by Daniel Hess of West Union, Iowa in the United States. Instead of vacuum cleaner he called it a carpet sweeper. In 1868, Ives W. McGaffey in Chicago in the United States invented the first manually-powered cleaner known as “Whirlwind” by using the principles of vacuum. John S. Thurman of St. Louis, Missouri, USA created the first motorized version of the vacuum cleaner in 1898.
