Inventor : John Baxt

From The Inventor:

Cleaning fan blades started my quest for a tool to do the job. My brush on a telescoping pole pushed the sticky dust onto the floor or elsewhere where I still had to get the vacuum cleaner out to complete the job. Having the telescoping pole and brush out, I would proceed to look for dust on the ceiling fan motor housing, cobwebs high on the walls and around ceiling mounted lights, in and on the air conditioner registers, high window sills, etc. Still there was always a small mess that had to be cleaned up and the pesky spiders just started the process all over again after finishing my superficial cleaning.

My initial idea of attaching the vacuum cleaner to something to make the job a single step operation met with no success as there were no extension tubes or telescoping wands available and there was no tool in the vacuum cleaner accessories that addressed the surfaces.

Outside, the problems were more severe and the brush on the pole even less helpful. An adaptor to attach to the wet/dry vacuum cleaner addresses this problem of dirt and cobwebs on high surfaces such as the eaves of the roof, outside light fixtures, outside windows and screens, etc.

We all know that vacuuming aids in the removal of disease and allergy producing entities at floor level in the home. With the "High Place Vacuum Cleaner Attachment" we can now obtain this same hygienic cleaning at higher levels. Removal of dust, dirt, allergens as well as insects including spiders located on high surfaces and spread by the air movement produced by fans and air-conditioning will add to our medical well-being. People with asthma and other lung and breathing problems might benefit significantly from this invention.
