I was talking to my boyfriend about the new vaccume cleaner I am going to
buy and he said I should be careful as most of them just suck air from the
carpet and do not make a vaccume. Aparently not even the Dysson cleaners
make a proper vaccume but are just suckers like all the rest. But if thats
all they do why are they called vaccume cleaners and isnt it against the
Trades and Descriptions Act to say they are something they are not?
1) Clearly you should not believe everything your boyfriend tells you, at
least not without some research on your part!
2) If you mean a "Vacuum Cleaner", then according to my Oxford dictionary it
is "... apparatus for removing dust etc. by suction...".
Therefore, unless the "Vacuum Clearner" you intend to buy does not remove
dust etc by suction, in my opinion you do not have a claim against the Trade
|| On the physics side, a vacuum cleaner does create a vaccum, the
|| vaccum draws the air in to fill the void therefore creating suction.
On the physics side there is no such thing as suction. :-)
And darned hard to make. I like the way they do it in space - it's
already fairly vacuumy, but putting up a thing like a giant dustbinlid
and doing your experiments downwind of it ups the quality of the vacuum
by several orders of mangychewed 'cos the atoms/molecules can't get
round the back fast enough to fill in the void.
