Overview and Features
Often, finding a vacuum that’s able to easily transition from carpet to a smooth surface is difficult. Usually, a vacuum’s suction performance suffers, but you won’t have that issue with this model from Miele. The suction power remains stable, whether you’re vacuuming tile, vinyl flooring, hardwood, or thick shag carpet.
The vacuum also comes equipped with ab innovative electrobrush which follows the contour of the floor adjusting to different surfaces instantly. This is how the vacuum is able to provide consistent suction power.
It also comes equipped with a long twelve-foot flexible hose and a forty-two-foot long cord that allows you to efficiently reach every corner of flooring in your home.
Want a vacuum that will not only keep your floors clean, but one that can also help improve the air quality in your home? This model comes equipped with the active air clean filter which can capture over ninety-nine percent of allergens, dust, debris, and dirt. The filter contains an active charcoal layer which neutralizes odors.
The vacuum features four power settings that you can manually adjust to control the level of suction, based on flooring type.
The vacuum uses bags, which can be a downside for pet owners who prefer the convenience that comes with bagless vacuums. However, some pet owners argue that vacuums that use bags are able to capture hair, dirt, and debris more efficiently, preventing the debris and hair from escaping and returning to the surface. The bag can hold an impressive six liters, so it doesn’t need to be emptied frequently.
The vacuum bag is placed directly behind the red plastic front, so you can easily open the door to remove the bag using one hand. The plastic mechanism of the front door feels somewhat flimsy, so you’ll need to take extra care when opening and closing the door.

You can also use the crevice or nozzle attachment that helps remove dog hair from clothes, so you can ditch the tape or lint brush.

The vacuum has two front castors and two fixed wheels in the rear. Combined with the swivel neck design, this vacuum is able to effortlessly maneuver, accessing those hard to reach places where pet hair tends to pile up, such as under the couch or in the corners.
Even when the bag is almost at capacity, there is no change in the vacuum’s suction power, which is a huge plus. This allows you to use each bag efficiently.
Unlike some models of upright vacuums, this model doesn’t vent at the front, which means you won’t have to worry about dirt or debris blowing away as you try to suck it up.
