Vacuum Cleaner Purifies Air (Dec, 1938)

Wouldn’t this be a bit loud?

Vacuum Cleaner Purifies Air
Small enough to rest on a bedside table, a vacuum cleaner now on the market has a special attachment that makes it useful for purifying the air in a sick room. Employing turbine-type blades instead of the conventional revolving fan to create suction, the unit draws room air in through a nozzle and passes it through a “germ trap” said to remove any dust and other impurities it may contain.

    Yeah I can’t sleep even with the modern “quiet” types. I can’t imagine trying to sleep with a Hoover running beside my pillow!

    It’s pretty interesting to see the progress we made in terms of the quality in vacuum cleaners. Just remember this was the same time that doctors were purporting that cigarettes were good for you!
