Miele Vacuum Cleaner Features


All Miele vacuums have very powerful motors, ranging from 1200 to 2200 Watts depending on the model, but this by itself does not guarantee top performance. What is important is that the power is used effectively throughout the system from the floor head and the hose right through the filters and the dust bag to give maximum suction. And to do this, all parts of the vacuum cleaner must work together to create an optimum flow of air.

Miele vacuum cleaners regularly excel in independent tests for their cleaning efficiency and overall performance, so when choosing your next vacuum cleaner remember that higher wattage does not necessarily guarantee more power where you need it!

Miele vacuum cleaners not only clean your floors, they also clean the air you breathe.


All vacuum cleaners produce exhaust air, which passes through a filter before it leaves the cleaner. If the filter is inefficient the expelled air can redistribute particles back into the room!

Because Miele vacuum cleaners have excellent filtration throughout the system – from the HyClean dust bag to the motor and exhaust filters – they can pick up particles as small as dust mite feces and tobacco smoke so the air that leaves the vacuum is cleaner than the air in the room to start with!

Thanks to the filter bag system and an airtight body, Miele vacuum cleaners were the first to comply, as a complete system, with the requirements of the new European standard for air hygiene when fitted with an Active HEPA Filter. They have been awarded seals of approval by the DMT, an independent institute in Germany, in recognition of the fact that they can reduce an individual’s exposure to airborne particles, such as house dust mites and cat allergens.


Miele offers a wide range of canister vacuums to suit different types of flooring and carpeted surfaces, with a variety of floor heads to choose from. There is a smooth running floor head for all types of flooring. It has a hidden, but vital ventilation system that ensures optimum performance whatever type of flooring it is vacuuming. For cut pile carpets there are Turbobrushes and Electrobrushes with a rotating roller brush to get deep into the pile of the carpet for a really thorough cleaning. For hard flooring and wooden floors Miele offers special floor heads with soft bristles to gently remove surface dust.

In addition to a choice of floor heads, all Miele canister vacuums have a selection of onboard tools for vacuuming different surfaces from upholstery to curtains, for dusting shelves and baseboards, and for getting into awkward nooks and crannies.

For those who prefer an upright vacuum cleaner to a canister, Miele offers a wide range of these models as well.

Starting with the S7 Series with its double swivel joint and castor front wheels for superior control. The S7 is easy to maneuver over all types of flooring from parquet to carpets and rugs. They can even lie flat-to-the-floor to get underneath low furniture. A carry handle on the back of the cleaner is set at an ergonomic height for easy carrying.

As you would expect from Miele, these cleaners come with three on-board accessories, a telescopic tube, and a flexible hose enabling you to clean everything from the floor to the ceiling, safely.
