Miele Vacuum Buyer’s Guide

miele vacuums for pets

How the Buyer’s Guide Works

Miele customers are people who care about quality performance and maintaining a healthy living environment. Some consumers continually buy “disposable-type” vacuums that are thrown away nearly every 3 years, while a Miele customer gets excellent performance from their vacuum for over 20 years. Choosing the correct company will clearly guarantee you a longer-lasting and more efficient vacuum but it is also important to make sure you choose the correct vacuum model. Below, we have divided customers into 5 different categories to help make your decision as simple and accurate as possible. We list various models under each specific cleaning requisite, however, there may be many models that fit your application. We select a “Best Fit” option and offer other vacuum choices below. While all suggested vacuums are great, we offer users varying price points and features for each need. The vacuums we present will be tailored to your specific needs and will be 100% ready for your cleaning situation.

Carpeted Flooring

Cleaning your carpet requires you to have a spinning brush roll on the bottom. This helps remove debris from fibrous surfaces. A standard vacuum that uses only suction will not meet your needs. Your carpet can also collect allergens, dust and other pollutants much easier than hard surface flooring. All this considered, we recommend that carpet owners purchase a Miele with a HEPA Filter.

Best Fit: miele c3 soft carpet vacuum

The Soft Carpet canister vacuum was designed for customers with medium or high pile carpeting. It has special suction settings and power nozzle height settings that help you clean even the most difficult "soft" carpet. It is designed to stay on top of the carpet and not get "bogged down" and become hard to push like other models. This vacuum is also great for all hard flooring and has top notch air filtration.

Hard Surface Flooring

When cleaning hard surface flooring, users want a vacuum that uses straight suction. The hard flooring brushes we offer have bristles that simultaneously remove debris and dust the floor. Canister vacuums are recommended, as they are a much better tool for these types of surfaces.

Mixed Flooring Surfaces (Carpet and Hard Floors)

When customers have both carpeting and hard flooring, they need a vacuum cleaner that contains a hard surface floor brush and an electric powerhead. This gives the ability to use a spinning brush roll on carpeting while also having a floor brush to use on hard flooring.

Pet Vacuum Cleaners

We LOVE our furry family members! But if you have a pet, you know that their hair can get EVERYWHERE and be a hassle to clean. For pet hair, we recommend a vacuum with an electric carpeting power head, and an upholstery tool with a spinning brush roll. These two items will combat all pet hair both in your home, and in your automobiles!

Allergy / HEPA Vacuum Cleaners

Miele is world-renowned for their air filtration standards. Where other vacuum brands solely attempt to clean just flooring, Miele purifies the air simultaneously. The filter forces the air through the entire filtration process without allowing any leakage. For allergy or asthma sufferers, a vacuum cleaner that contains an air-purifying filter is key. For the buyers guide sake we had to choose 3 models, but every single Miele C3 Vacuum cleaner as well as some Miele U17 vacuums are ideal for allergy sufferers as well.

Best Fit-Mixed Flooring: miele marin c3 vacuum cleaner Miele Marin C3 Complete Canister Vacuum Cleaner Price $1,099.00 The Miele Marin is ideal for users with asthma and/or allergies.
