Miele Vacuum Cleaner Reviews, Part III: What is the Best Miele Vacuum Cleaner for Pet Hair?

If you have a pet you understand that all pets -- at one time or another -- will make a mess and the owner will have to clean up after them. All too often that mess is pet hair. How to deal with pet hair is a hot topic in todays vacuuming industry. Not to worry! Miele Vacuums have you covered. They have the industries' two best vacuums for pet hair and they are both appropriately named Miele Cat and Dog.

While both wear the name "Miele Cat and Dog" they are two very different but equally amazing machines. One is a canister-style vacuum geared for pet owners with diverse needs -- such as a variety of flooring surfaces. The other is an upright-style vacuum for people with mostly carpet in their home – for those who just like the convenience of upright vacuums. If you're not sure which one works best for you, please read on.

Miele Cat and Dog S8380

The Miele Cat and Dog S8380 comes from the revolutionary new Miele S8 canister vacuum line.The Miele Cat and Dog Canister vacuum comes with all the great features of the Miele S8 like a 3D Bumper Guard, and an amazing 7-year warranty on the Miele 1200 Watt Vortex Motor.

The attachments that come with the Miele Cat and Dog Canister are what really makes this machine a powerhouse for handling pet hair. It comes with three main floor tools to handle all different situations. The first is the Miele SEB 228 ElectroPlus Powerhead. This tool is geared to handle all forms of carpet from low-pile to high-pile. For hard-surface flooring, it comes with the Miele SBB 300-3 Parquet Floorbrush.

This tool does a great job with pet hair and is safe to use on almost any type of flooring -- from tile to the most delicate hardwood floor. Last but not least, it also comes with the STB 101 Mini Turbo brush. This tool is made for removing pet hair from furniture, stairs, or any other place that is hard to reach with a conventional power head.

Miele Cat and Dog S7260

The second vacuum comes from the Miele S7 upright line and is the Miele Cat and Dog Upright. The Miele Cat and Dog S7260 is an incredible machine that includes Miele’s Swivel Neck Technology. Swivel Neck Technology allows for great maneuverability and upright tool storage.This Miele model also comes with an L.E.D. headlight, 6-Stage Suction Control, a 7-Year Motor warranty, and the STB 101 Mini Turbobrush to get to hard-to-reach pet hair.

Miele's 12-Stage Miele Filtration System is Available in Both Pet Models

While these two vacuums are very different, there are a few aspects they share aside from the unmatched STB 101 Handheld Turbobrush. Both vacuums have Miele's signature 12-stage filtration system.

The 9-Layer Miele AirClean bag collects pet hair while filtering the air, and the Miele Active AirClean Charcoal Filter cleans the air to 99.95% or microns .05 or greater in size but also kills the unwanted pet odor in the process.

If you're worried about noise, these vacuums also have a remarkably quiet operating sound level ... so there is a good chance that your pets might not even run and hide when you turn it on! If you have pets and they have hair, the Miele Cat and Dog vacuum line is something to look into. They will help to make cleaning up after your furry little friends an enjoyable experience!
