- T. LE VORA CARPET CLEANING DEVI CE Filed Dec. 11. 1926 Attorney 1 UNITED STA Patented Jan. 17,1928.
THOMAS LE volts, or Iowa CITY, Iowa;
Application filed'Dccember 11, 1926. Ser1alNo.-15 4,214.
' This invention relates to new and useful improvements in cleaning devices that is primarily adapted for use in the cleaning of carpets and in particular for working soap intimately into the nap of the carpet and to remove both the soap and grime with the least amount of labor. I
A further and important object is to pro vide a cleaner of this character that is ex tremely simple of construction having a member for scraping engagement with the carpet surface so as to work the soap into the nap and being so constructed as to perejected onto the carpet during the cleaning operation.
Other objects will become apparent as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same comprising the novel form, combination, and arrangement of parts hereinafter more fully described,vshown in the accompanying drawing and claimed.
In the drawing wherein like reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views:
Figure 1 is a view in side elevation, partly in section of a carpet cleaning device constructed in accordance with the present invention.
Figure 2 is a fragmentary back side elevation thereof also partlyin section.
New having particular reference to the drawing my novel carpet cleaner consists of a flat bar 5 preferably, of wood, and of pre determined length that is formed centrally with a threaded hole for receivingan ex ternally threaded and internally tapered flanged sleeve 6 within which is threaded the inner tapered end of an elongated pipe 7, that in reality forms the handle of the tool. Upon the opposite end of this pipe 7 is a valve 8 havingan inlet nipple to which is 1 attached a water hose 9 in communication with the house water supply. I
Arranged uponth'eouter side of the bar 5 and at one edge thereof is a closed ended branch pipe 10 in communication with the discharge end of the pipe 7 as clearly disclosed in Figure 2. The bottom side of the branch pipe 10 is formed with water emitting openings-ll, while arranged ,upon the outer side of the bar 5 adjacent the bottom thereof and in back of the branch pipe 10 is a scraping blade 12. When the device is disposed at the position indicated in Figure 1 and moved across the surface of a carpet by'thehandsof the operator, the blade 12 will serve to workup the nap of the carpet and force thereinto particles ofsoap that ave been previously laid upon the carpet. Obviously when the valve 8 is opened, the water will flow through the pipe 7 and thence through the openings in the branch pipe 10 to be projected upon the surface of the carpet soithat the same will be worked into the nap together with the soap with the result that the dirt dust, grime, and the like is brought to the surface, and thence scraped therefrom by reason of the blade 12. mit a charge of water to be continuously It will thus be seen that I have provided a highly novel, simple, and efficient carpet cleaner that is well adapted for the pur oses heretofore designated, even though I ave herein shown and described the invention as consisting of certain detail structural elements, it is nevertheless to be understood that minor changes may be made therein withoutaffecting the spirit and scope of the appended claims.
Having thus described the invention, what.
I claim as new is 1. In a carpet cleaning device, of the class described, a hollow handle adapted for communication at its upper end with a source of water supply, a cross bar secured on the lower end of the hollow handle and through which a lower end of the handle extends, a waterpipe arranged forwardly of the outer side of the cross bar-and communicating with the lower end of the hollow handle, said water pipe being provided with water emitting openings in the bottom thereof, and a scraping blade depending from the cross 2. In a carpet cleaning device, a hollow handle communicating'at its upper end with a source of water supply, a cross bar provided with a central transverse opening, asleeve secured in the opening, a lower end of the hollow handle extending through the sleeve and secured therein,a water pipe dis posed in parallel spaced relation with respect to the outer side of the cross bar the lower end of the hollow handle which project-s beyond the outer side of the cross bar extending into the water pipe, said water pipe being provided with water emitting openings in the bottom thereof, and a scraping blade depending from the cross bar.
3. In a carpet cleaning device, an elon-.
gated hollow handlehaving communication at its upper end with a. source of water supply, a lower end of the handle being tapered and externally threaded, a cross bar formed with a tapered threaded transverselyextending opening in the central portion thereof, an externally threaded sleeve arranged in the threaded opening of the cross bar, said sleeve being internally threaded and tapered, the lower tapered end of .the handle being threaded through the sleeve, a water pipe closed at its respective ends and disposed longitudinally in parallel spaced relation with respect to the outer side of the cross bar, the lower end of the handle extending into the water pipe, said Water pipe being provided with a series of Water emitting openings in the bottom thereof, and a scraping blade secured at its upper edge portion to the outer side of the cross bar and depending therefrom.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
