The vacuum cleaner is an apparatus that creates a partial vacuum and is used to suck up dust and dirt. It uses an air pump to create a vacuum, and it is used to clean floors, but it can also clean other surfaces. What a vacuum cleaner sucks into itself is collected into a dustbag or a cyclone and later disposed of.
Although most handheld vacuums have plenty of juice for quick, occasional cleanups—most last about 15 minutes—the best ones last long enough to clean an entire car. Longer battery life can be helpful, but better suction often means you don't need to clean as long.
