Miele upright vacuums: U1 series makes quite the impression
The first time you vacuum with a Miele upright you can’t help but be impressed. The quality craftsmanship and smooth operating functions leave little doubt as to why Miele has four upright models in the top 10 for “Best upright vacuums” Consumer Reports 2013. Sleek design, combined with top of the class cleaning abilities set Miele U1 series apart from the competition.
Why should I buy a Miele upright vacuum cleaner?
Even though Miele is world renown for their excellent canister vacuums, they have transferred that technology and feel into The U1 vacuum line. A 7 year motor and casing warranty accompanies each machine but after rigorous testing Miele estimates the average vacuum life is closer to 20 years or longer. That's a long time of Miele quality cleaning from one vacuum.
Auto suction controls: what that really means?
The top Miele upright vacuum model has a feature called “automatic suction control”. This is a function Miele has created that sensors the air flow going through your vacuum and automatically adjusts the suction power to match the cleaning task your doing. This makes for effortless transitions between drape cleaning and carpet cleaning. These are two different cleaning tasks where very different suction levels are desired. Miele has taken the guesswork out.
Miele Uprights are your ideal solution for carpeting
There is no doubt that if your house has mostly carpets the ideal style vacuum cleaner is an upright. Some carpet companies void warranties when certain brands of vacuums are used on them. Miele is has taken note and combated this problem with careful engineering. The U1 vacuums have a soft bristle brush roll that protects even the most precious of carpet fibers while still removing debris. For the consumers who have spend a lot of money installing quality carpets and flooring in their homes, this is something to think about.
What if I have mostly carpet with some hard wood flooring?
All the Miele U1 series have a switch on the handle that can turn the brush roll on and off. This allows users to use straight suction when cleaning their hard flooring surfaces. This feature protects the sensitive finish on your flooring and also keeps the spinning brush roll from spraying debris out of the suction zone.
Bagged vs bag less upright vacuums: which is better?
Among many other things, Miele is known for their exceptional and unsurpassed air filtration. When dust and dirt is picked up in a Miele vacuum it travels through a series of stages before clean, purified air is released back into your home. The dust is then left trapped in the vacuum bag with microscopic particles getting trapped in the filters. When the bag is removed for disposal a spring loaded top closes, sealing all the debris inside ensuring none gets released into your homes air.
In bag less vacuums dirt and debris is sucked up and then gets trapped in a dirt cup. The remaining air is then run through filters before clean and filtered air is released back into your home. When the dirt cup gets full you remove the container, and empty it in the trash can or wherever you decide. During the emptying process dust particles and debris is released back into the air, essentially undoing some of the purification that just took place.
There is no correct answer here but just different needs and desires. However bagged vacuums will always be cleaner and make the disposal of your vacuum waste more sanitary.
