真空吸尘器可以是完美的工业清洁工具;与扫地机不同，它们不会扬起灰尘，而灰尘在某些情况下可能是危险的，而且它们的使用劳动强度最小。真空吸尘器可以配置为几乎可以收集任何东西;细粉、磨料、爆炸介质、垃圾、非自由流动介质、金属加工屑、有毒介质、冷却剂、油雾和焊接烟雾都是可以利用的，尽管用于拾取木屑的真空与用于拾取液体废物的真空的设计不同。工业过程中产生的一些废料经过处理后可以回收利用。真空吸尘器是回收工业废料再利用的极好方法。它们不会损坏材料，可以设计专门的过滤器，以减少不必要的材料的数量，如灰尘或灰尘收集的意外。废物收集后，如有必要，可以进行清理，然后再进行处理，以备将来使用。使用吸尘器清洁工作空间的另一个好处是，它们可以安装HEPA过滤器;在环境中产生大量的刨花或灰尘，HEPA过滤器真空可以去除大颗粒和细颗粒，降低工作空间的空气质量。 A vacuum is an area from which air has been fully or partially removed. On the earth's surface, every object is subject to the force exerted by the weight of air. When air pressure in one area decreases, more highly pressurized air from nearby floods into the lower-pressure area until equilibrium is achieved; this is what causes wind. Vacuum cleaners use a fan or system of fans to artificially lower air pressure in the enclosures where they collect debris. The more highly pressurized air outside of the enclosure rushes in, bringing nearby dust, dirt, debris or fluid with it, depending on how strong the vacuum cleaner is. Every vacuum configuration is different. Small, portable vacuum cleaners can collect debris in fabric filter bags or removable plastic containers. Sometimes disposable filters are lined with larger, removable filters to provide extra air filtering. Almost every variety of vacuum cleaner is designed to connect with attachments that allow for vacuuming in different places. Vacuums for carpet cleaning usually feature an agitator for easier removal of dirt from carpet fibers, and auto vacuums use special attachments that help them clean tight spaces more easily. Continuous duty vacuums feature large collection enclosures that can be emptied quickly and easily so the machine can be put back to work without too much delay. Backpack vacuum cleaners, canister vacuums, rider or walk-behind vacuum cleaners, and vacuum cleaner trucks are just a few of the available portable vacuum cleaner configurations. The overwhelming majority of vacuum cleaners are at least semi-portable, and most of them are very portable. Even continuous duty vacuums, which can be quite large and are generally used only for the constant cleaning of warehouse or factory workspaces, are often equipped with wheels. Central vacuum systems are the least portable of all vacuum cleaner systems. In large-scale building maintenance contexts where constant cleaning is required, central vacuum systems are a good solution to the problem of maintaining efficiency. Through inlets in a built-in system of ductwork, maintenance employees can connect hoses and vacuum attachments to a single central vacuum located in a mechanical closet. Because the central vacuum is isolated, and its room is usually located in a basement, the noise generated by vacuuming is very limited compared to most portable vacuums. This feature is invaluable in contexts like colleges where vacuuming is needed even as classes are proceeding. Instead of using many vacuums with many filters, maintenance crews that use central vacuums have only one machine to empty and service.
