Sweepers consisted of a metal body with a large bag attached to the back and a hoover head at the front, as well as several limbs ending in a variety of brushes and dusters. Sweepers moved autonomously on two wheels and could lift their arms from the ground to clean raised surfaces or people. They bore a heavy resemblance to non-magical vacuum cleaners.

The British Ministry of Magic used at least one sweeper to keep the floors of their headquarters in London clean.

History

In 1927, a sweeper interrupted a conversation between Newton Scamander and Leta Lestrange in one of the ministry's corridors, and the pair had to move apart to allow the sweeper to trundle between them, brushing Scamander's lower coat with one of its arms as it passed.[1]
