Making It Easy to Pick the Right Miele Vacuum

Miele Upright and Canister Vacuum CleanersMiele makes 20 different canister and upright vacuum cleaners. With the available floor tools, accessories and other options, there are over 300 possible Miele vacuum configurations. So you can build a Miele vacuum cleaner that’s perfect for you and your home.

Sounds great, right? But I’m thinking you’re just a bit overwhelmed by all that choice. Well, I’ve got a tip for you that will make things much, much easier.

Miele Really Makes Only Five Vacuum Cleaners

Yes, there are 20 different models, but Miele doesn’t make 20 different vacuum cleaners. They make five. That’s right, all 20 models and 300-plus configurations are built off of five basic series: three canisters (the C1 Classic, C2 Compact and C3 Complete) and two uprights (U1 Dynamic and H1 Swing).

Each series has its own unique features. Within each series, unique sets of additional features or accessories create the individual models that make up the series. Keep this in mind and it’s much easier to choose the best Miele vacuum for your home or office.

The Big Decision: Upright or Canister

Both Miele uprights and canisters have the same great suction and filtration, so if you have a real preference for one or the other, stick with that style to be sure you’ll be comfortable using the vacuum.

If you have no preference or you’re otherwise unsure, follow this rule of thumb: If you have high-end carpet or mostly bare floors and area rugs, buy a canister. If you have mostly wall-to-wall cut-pile carpet, go for the upright.

Choosing a Miele Canister Vacuum

Miele Canister Vacuum CleanersMiele’s three canister (C) series are handily numbered 1, 2 and 3. All have the same great cleaning suction and warranty, but as you move up a number (and in price), you get more features and higher quality fit and finish.

Here are the basic differences between the three series:

C1: The basic Miele vacuum with dial suction control and semi-sealed filtration with Air Clean filter. One model is available with HEPA filtration standard.

C2: Adds the following upgrades that are not available on the C1. (All models have Air Clean filtration standard.)

  • Fully sealed filtration
  • Thicker plastics
  • Better fit and finish
  • Longer cord
  • Longer wand
  • Quieter motor
  • Crush-proof hose
  • Upgraded natural bristle floor brush
  • Upgraded natural bristle dusting brush

C3: Adds the following upgrades that are not available on the C2 or C1.

  • Fully sealed HEPA filtration standard (HEPA optional on Cat & Dog model)
  • Rubber 3-D bumper surround
  • Toe tap suction adjustment
  • Built in accessory storage compartment
  • Available automatic suction control
  • Available finger-tip suction control
  • Available HEPA filter usage timer
  • Available auto-stop tool rest

Choosing a Miele Upright Vacuum

Miele Upright Vacuum CleanerI haven’t forgotten the uprights, but with two basic options, they’re pretty simple to choose from.

The Swing H1 Quickstep is a small broom model with a powerful motor and simple rug and floor brush. It’s not intended to do the job of a full-size vacuum, but is perfect for bare floors and area rugs in smaller homes or to be used as a second vacuum in a larger home. A variety of accessories are available to extend the Miele Quickstep’s utility, including an electric powerbrush for medium pile carpet and area rugs.

For a full-size, full power upright, Miele has the Dynamic U1. It handles most types of carpet and hard flooring very well, but we don’t recommend it for delicate carpet, long carpet (shag) or rough stone and tile.

As I said, it’s pretty simple to choose which Miele U1 upright is right for you, since there are only four models. All are the same basic vacuum paired with different tools, filters or suction controls:

  • Twist: The basic model with Air Clean filtration.
  • Jazz: Same as the Twist, and adds an LED headlight and HEPA filtration.
  • Cat & Dog: Same as the Jazz, and adds odor-blocking Active Air Clean filter plus mini turbo brush.
  • AutoEco: Same as the Jazz, and adds pushbutton suction control on the handle and an Automatic suction setting.

So, it’s really pretty simple to find the right Miele for your needs. Once you’ve decided on the filtration and other basic features you want, pick the series that best matches them, and pick the model with the tools you need for your flooring. Still, if you need help finding the right one or have any questions, just email or call us at 888-205-3228 to talk to a Miele vacuum expert.

Tips for Choosing the Right Floor Brush for Your Vacuuming Job

Vacuum Cleaner Floor ToolsHow many times did you hear from your dad (or mom) “use the right tool for the right job”?  It’s true – a butter knife is not a screwdriver or a chisel.  It might get the job done in a pinch, but those of us who have used a butter knife like it was a Swiss army knife know it would have been easier just to go and get the screwdriver in the first place.

In the same way, though it’s a chore, you can make vacuuming a lot easier on yourself by using the right tool for the job your doing.  Here’s a quick rundown on the different vacuum floor tools and their (proper) uses to give you some help choosing a vacuum cleaner floor brush:

Hard Floor Brush

This is a flat suction-only brush with small wheels and bristles around the base.  Bristles may be made of nylon, but the best quality brushes use horse hair or boar’s hair, which actually dust and polish the floor while you’re vacuuming.  Hard floor brushes do a much better job cleaning wood and tile than any upright or power nozzle can.

Use this tool if you have: Wood, tile, or laminate flooring.

Advantages:  Small and lightweight.  Dusts and polishes flooring while cleaning.

Rug & Floor Tool

This is the primary tool used throughout Europe.  It’s a flat floor bush with a mechanism that retracts the bristles so the tool can be used on hard floors as well as area rugs and flat carpeting.  Usually, there are a set of velveteen thread-lifting strips that whisk away hair and lint using just suction. There is no rotating brush, and while that makes it great for delicate carpets, it’s not suitable for thicker U.S. style carpet.

Use this tool if you have:  Wood floors, area rugs, delicate specialty carpets (frieze, wool berber, sisal).

Advantages:  Simple, lightweight and gentle.

Turbo Brush

This tool is a rotating brush for carpets that is spun by an air turbine driven by the suction of the vacuum.  A turbo brush adds some agitation action to help loosen dirt from carpet fibers, and can be easier to push on large areas of carpet than a power brush.  But it has a distinct disadvantage when compared to a motorized brush:  as the turbo brush contacts the carpet surface, it can slow down or even stop if the carpet is too dense.  This makes it useful only for very flat or looped carpet.

Use this tool if you have: Very flat looped carpet or lots of area rugs
Advantages:  Less expensive than a motorized brush, more carpet agitation and easier to push than a rug and floor tool.

Motorized (Power) Brush

A motorized power brush is a rotating brush that is driven by a small motor in the brush nozzle.  Different kinds of brush rolls are available, varying from super soft bristles for expensive wool carpets, to very aggressive stiff nylon bristles for thick plush pile synthetic carpets.   Regardless of the type, they provide very good agitation to loosen dirt from carpet fibers and help restore the pile as they clean.

Use this tool if you have:  Standard or thick-pile carpet.  Pet hair.

Advantages:  Deep cleaning and carpet pile restoration.

Be careful when choosing an electric brush!  Choosing a brush that is too harsh or aggressive for your carpet can lead to premature wear or even severe carpet damage.
