About Hoover

Hoover's history reaches back more than 100 years and traces a path to the very invention of the vacuum itself. In 1907, janitor Murray Spangler saw a problem that needed fixing: In the course of his daily work, he encountered dust that triggered asthma attacks. Working at night, Spangler devised a "suction sweeper" to pull dust and dirt out of the air and off the ground. W. H. Hoover bought Spangler's patent in 1908, and began selling the country's first sweepers to the public. It was the beginning of more than a century of innovations, from our famous beater bar to disposable paper vacuum bags, vacuum cleaner headlights and self-propelling technology and even the side-mounted hose. Today, Hoover continues to build on its history of innovation and creating effortless cleaning solutions.
