'While vacuum cleaners are becoming popular with hundreds of people from all over the world using it, many don’t understand how it works. Just like the cell phone that you love, it is good to know how your machine works and this article will do it for you!
The name vacuum cleaner tells it all. It works by suction. Even though it uses the same mechanism as sipping a soda with a straw, a vacuum cleaner mechanism is a bit complicated.
Read on to understand how Vacuum cleaner works when cleaning dust and debris from your house!
Components of a Vacuum Cleaner
While a vacuum cleaner looks complicated, it comes with six vital components:
- The intake harbor;
- A drainage port;
- An electric motor;
- A permeable band;
- A housing;
How does it work?
Step 1- Pressure creation
The machine works with the use of a motor that uses electricity. The motor has angled blades that resemble an airplane propeller. The motor causes the propellers to spin rapidly forcing the air into the exhaust port. The action moves the air from underneath the fan leaving a low-pressure area behind the fan and around the floor. Since pressure usually moves from an area with elevated pressure to a near to the ground pressure area, this moves dirt from your floor.
Once the motor runs and rotates the fans, that will cause pressure and your machine will such dirt and debris from the floor.
Step 2- Moving Dirt
Once the fans create a low-pressure area behind the fans and near the floor, the air from the floor moves in to fill the space. As that happens, the pressure will lift dirt and debris from the floor. On top of that, the air can pick larger particles of dust when friction is taking place.
The pressure decrease in the fan is similar to that of a bottle when you sip with a straw. Since the pressure level below the fan decreases than the external pressure on the machine, suction takes place.
Once a partial vacuum happens in the vacuum cleaner as a result of suction, the air moves into the machine via the intake harbor since the air inside the machine decreases more than the outside one.
Step 3 –The brush
Numerous sucking cleaners can use a brush instead of a fan, brushes that rotate to sweep the floor. At times, the brush runs on the same motor that runs the vacuum cleaner fans.
In most cases, you can run the brush by pushing horizontally across the floor rather than rotating. Whichever the way, the brush does the same job of making dirt loose, and debris that sticks to your carpet or floor that the vacuum pressure was unable to remove.
The brush is very crucial when it comes to clean your floor thoroughly. The brush can easily remove the sticky dust and dirt from the floor and move it into the air where it is easy to remove them, leaving your floor sparkling clean.
Step 4 –The bag
Once the machine sucks in all the debris from your floor, the high-pressure area above the fan makes the pressure to go upwards. Here, the dust particles and the can smoothly go through, but the air is dense enough to trap dust and debris as well as other larger durt particles that came from the flooring. Once the dirt leaves the back, the air leaves the back of the machine, leaving behind all dust and dirt inside the bag.
The bag comes with excellent construction, making sure that no dirt can escape until you empty the bag safely.
Step 5 - Putting it together
Once you repeatedly use the brush, it tends to loosen all the dirt and sticky particles after a while. Also, the brush traps more massive particles, and the vacuum lifts them to where they are quickly picked and sucked up into the porous bag of the vacuum cleaner.
The vacuum cleaner effectively picks the dirt softened by the brush and secures it, making sure it does not fall back into the floor.
There you have it. A vacuum cleaner is not as complicated as most people think. With the above simple principles, your floor remains super clean. Get one today and experience the fun that comes with this beautiful machine!
