Who was Hubert Cecil Booth? Inventor of the first vacuum cleaner


Hubert Cecil Booth 147th Birthday

Not too old, but just a century ago. The wife of a British rich man invited all his friends to a special party. The name of the party was also something weird. What was the name given to him? That name was- ‘Cleaning party‘. Friends were also shocked to hear this name. Did you even do it, due to being a special friend you had to go?

The place of everything in the house of the rich person had changed, but the arrangement for eating was good, so there was some special difference. The food was going on and there was a horse carriage standing outside the house. One very big thing came out of that horse carriage, along with eight-ten-uniformed people also came out.

Those people brought a big pipe with that device to bring them along and they went directly inside the house. Inside the house, they started rotating that pipe. Along with this, some of the pipes that were made with transparent wrapping came out quickly after entering some of the pipes. All this continued for about an hour. When everything was over a woman came out and returned to express gratitude to them all.

This event is usually 1902-03 of this period. Not only this, but many parties were often deliberately organized at the house of the rich at that time. The same thing became the new fashion itself. The father of all these parts was a British engineer, ‘Hubert Cecil Booth‘ and was responsible for this fashion exploring the ‘vacuum cleaner‘ he modified. 

Hubert Cecil Booth was born in Gloucester Park gate, Britain on August 30, 1871, identified as a wizard of cleanliness. Being known as a hardworking student, Hubert Cecil Booth got admission in the ‘City and Guilds Centres Institution’ for engineering education after schooling.

Hubert Cecil Booth earned a civil and Mechanical degree and he has been working in a variety of private firms for a few years. Just because there was a desire to amend the period, Hubert Cecil Booth decided to build his own firm. On the strength of the experience that he has, Hubert established a consultancy firm.

When starting his own business, Hubert Cecil Booth began to get time to amend. At that time, brooms and garments were used primarily for the cleanliness of the house or the offices. If the house or office was to be cleaned then it would have to be spent all day long. Hubert started making amendments on whether this device can be built to clean and keep it in mind.

At that time a special machine named ‘Worldwide‘ was prepared by the American Modifier for cleaning. But the device could not be a lot more successful. The instrument that used to blow dust and other dirt with strong winds was used in it. During the 1870s, this amendment in the fierce fire that took place in the city of Chicago was shattered. Hubert decided to use only a different kind of technology. For this, they did an experiment on their own.

Once while travelling from a train carriage, after eating a food he kept his napkin on the table lying on the table and other things. After this, he tried to drag his nails on the napkin and put it in his hand. When the handkerchief was dragged in, along with it, a small piece of dirt and dirt on the table and the dirt also went along with it. At the same time, Hubert felt a lot of trouble, but after that, he was very happy to know that his experiment was successful.

For a few months, for a few months, Hubert succeeded in making vacuum cleaner weight of about three and a half hundred pounds in 1901, after his relentless efforts were made in the production of a hybrid cleaning device. The vacuum cleaner made in the early period was known as ‘Puffing Billy‘.

The ‘Puffing Billy‘ model was so big that it required a full horse cart to keep it. The machine was kept out of the way when it was cleaned up. After this, the people of the booth company used to go inside the house and clean it.

The vacuum cleaner came into being, but in the year 1902, when the booth company promoted the vacuum cleaner while campaigning with the title ‘Clean with the help of electric power‘, the vacuum cleaner was mentioned for the first time. . The device created by Hubert Cecil Booth gained special popularity than the then British King Edward VII. 

King Edward (seventh) had a coronation ceremony in 1902. At that time, the booth got the work of cleaning the carpet of King and the Minister with his ‘vacuum cleaner‘. At that time, pleased with his work, the King asked for a ‘vacuum cleaner’ for the cleanliness of these famous items, Kings Palace and Windsor Castle.

After this, the booth has achieved more success in making its vacuum cleaner in some flexible in 1903, while improving most of its equipment and also got a patent for this research. After this, he established ‘The British Vacuum Cleaner Company Limited‘ and started manufacturing ‘vacuum cleaner‘ at the commercial level.

In the meantime, the vacuum cleaners’ equipment became more and more changed. These reforms are specifically mentioned by Walter Griffith, James Spangler and James Dyson. The ‘vacuum cleaners’ used in today’s time are made using cyclone or robotic instruments.

For which the first had to be spoiled for a whole day, such a cleaning work is done in just a few hours with the help of ‘vacuum cleaner’. This also saves our time and the mind is also happy. At least, for this reason, housewives must give gratitude to Hubert Cecil Booth.
