Title: FLOOR NOZZLE FOR A VACUUM CLEANER, METHOD FOR SUCTIONING TEXTILE SURFACES AND VACUUM CLEANER
Abstract:
A floor nozzle for a vacuum cleaner is proposed having a textile surface cleaning function, comprising a floor body (14), a suction head (38), which is arranged on the floor body (14), and a suction mouth (48) which is arranged on the suction head (38), wherein the suction mouth (48) has a first bounding wall (50) with a first suction edge (74) and has, spaced apart from the first bounding wall (50), a second bounding wall (52) with a second suction edge (76), wherein the first suction edge (74) and the second suction edge (76) are intended to be immersed into textile material of a textile surface (72), the first bounding wall (50) has a first inner face (62a) and a first outer face (62b), the second bounding wall (52) has a second inner face (64a) and a second outer face (64b), the first inner face (62a) faces the second inner face (64a) and a suction opening (70) is formed between the first inner face (62a) and the second inner face (62b), wherein at least one flow path (102, 102') is formed in the suction head (38) through which flow path air from an environment of the floor nozzle can be guided through the suction head (38) to the first suction edge (74) on the first outer face (62b) and/or to the second suction edge (76) on the second outer face (64b).
