Trust Hoover® to deliver the highest quality of clean – you can have peace of mind that when you clean with a Hoover you are using the best, most thorough machines to get your home truly clean with minimal time and effort.
The Hoover® story begins in 1907 with Murray Spangler, an inventor who worked as a janitor. Spangler had an asthma problem from sweeping up dust all night. To remedy this issue, he gathered a tin soapbox, a fan, a sateen pillow case and a broom handle, and assembled an odd-looking, cumbersome contraption that managed to pull the dust away from the air he breathed. He quickly realized that this "suction sweeper," as he called it, had enormous sales potential.
A few short months later, W.H. "Boss" Hoover, bought the patent from Spangler, retaining him as a partner, and soon had six employees assembling six units a day in a corner of the leather goods shop. "Boss" placed a small ad in the Saturday Evening Post offering 10 days of free use of a Hoover suction sweeper to anyone who wrote in and requested it. He then chose a reputable store in each major city across the U.S. where customers could purchase the machine, allowing store managers to keep any commission from a resulting sale thus laying the groundwork for a national dealer network to form.
Today, Hoover® continues to provide quality cleaning products with the most effective technology to get your home truly clean so you can get back to what’s important in your life. Offering a comprehensive line of products using patented technology, like WindTunnel™ and Spin Scrub™, Hoover® provides machines for general and special-purpose vacuuming.
