Miele Vacuums


Posted by R. Power on Friday, September 26, 2014
The other night I decided to toss out my old vacuum (whom I will name, "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named" as not to discredit that particular brand) and upgrade to a Miele Twist upright. I weighed the pros and cons, and a couple days later I brought home a shiny, new Sprint Blue upright vacuum. My New Miele Twist VacuumOut of the box there was literally one thing I had to do, attach the handle, and I was ready to go.

I started with my bedroom floor, which much like most of the apartment, is carpeted. Though I'll admit that the Twist is heavier than my old upright, it really scoots across the carpet with little effort. Before I knew it, I was done, but for some reason I didn't stop there. I was using the upholstery tools to clean my mattress, curtains and couch cushions, dusting the ceiling fan (how did I not notice the mountain of filth accumulating up there?), and vacuuming our living room. My curious roommate even gave it a go. She vacuumed her entire room, which really surprised me. She would normally rather have a root canal than clean!

During all this cleaning, a few thoughts occurred to me. "Wow, why am I excited? Having just turned 25(not a mom, homemaker, a homeowner, or even someone who has a strong desire to keep a clean home), why am I cleaning like my life depends on it? Is it because I'm a little nerdy, and the Twist is a bit like a gadget? Do I enjoy quality products?" I had a lot of questions but was short on answers.

This wasn't something I posted on Facebook or Instagram, but I did casually bring it up in conversation with one of my good friends, Ginny. She was surprised to hear me say "Miele" and told me that her mom had a Miele, one that literally mentioned in her mother's will, is to be passed down to Ginny. It was fun and interesting to make that Miele connection.

Soon after, I went to Asheville to visit some friends. To my pleasant surprise, I walked into my friend's house and saw that she had a Miele Plus! I exclaimed "I have a Miele too!" Of course, not everyone knew what I was talking about, but I was still excited to see someone else around my age with a Miele.

Less Than A Week Left to Get a FREE HEPA Filter w/ Every Miele Vacuum Cleaner PurchaseSo moral of my story is, you're never too young to have a superior quality home appliance. You aren't simply paying for a name, but for a lifelong (well, at least, twenty year) investment. And, if you got something good, don't keep it a secret! You'll never know who else may have a Miele in their closet.

Miele FreshAir Allergy Vacuum CleanersHere at AchooAllergy, we have long touted the filtration of Miele vacuums and how they are particularly helpful for those dealing with allergies, asthma, COPD or other respiratory issues. Others know Miele as a durable luxury vacuum brand with products that display the latest in innovation and style. The two new FreshAir Miele vacuums are the perfect blend of both of these realities.

The Miele FreshAir vacuum cleaners share many common features. They both feature the Miele AirClean System of filtration. This 12-stage system quietly and efficiently removes all visible dirt and dust that the vacuum sucks up and has been independently tested to remove 99.99% of particles 0.1 microns and larger. Both also feature the workhouse, Miele Vortex motor that provides more suction Miele S8 Fresh Air Allergy Vacuum Cleanerwith less noise than comparable motors in uprights or canisters. Three mini-accessories that tuck away neatly into the body of each vac are also included as is Miele's super-quiet operation, self-sealing filterbags, durable ABS construction, and superior warranty. Lastly, both are Arctic White, which is only fitting for a pair of HEPA vacuums as hygienic as these.

The main difference between these two vacuums is mainly in that one is an upright while the other, a canister vacuum. This also means the cleaning head of each is different, as the upright is geared specifically for those with carpet while the canister is targeted for mainly smooth floors.

The independently-driven brushroll of the Miele S7 Fresh Air upright deep cleans while automatic height adjustment raises and lowers the cleaning head depending on the Miele S7 Fresh Air Allergy Vacuum Cleaner surface. Flip the brushroll off and you can use suction only to clean smooth floors with this versatile upright. With the canister, the STB 205-3 powerhead uses Miele's suction to power the brushroll and clean low pile carpet and rugs while the included combination AllTeQ tool performs well on smooth surfaces of all types. The bag capacity will be higher with the upright, but the Miele FreshAir S8 canister has the auto-rewind feature for the power cord and foot operated suction control.

In all, both showcase the core features that make most Miele vacuum cleaners not only luxury home appliances but vacuums built specifically for those who want a cleaner, healthier home. Both are priced at $599 and are delivered the next day for free!

A couple weeks ago, we introduced you to the Miele RX1 Scout robotic vacuum cleaner. Due to some technical difficulities, I was having problems getting the video to properly load for some people's browsers. That's been fixed, so now you can see the Scout in action!



We expect the Scout to be available very shortly, but if you'd like to read more visit our Miele Scout page or view additional images of the RX1 in our first Miele Scout blog post.

Miele has officially entered the robot market! If you're thinking Rosie, the live-in robot from the old Jetson's cartoon, you're on the right track, but probably getting ahead of yourself a little. No, I'm talking about a Miele robot vacuum cleaner. As the first of its kind, the Miele RX1 Scout robotic vacuum is packed with the innovation, advanced features and cleaning ability that has made Miele a popular name in both the luxury appliance and healthy cleaning markets.

The All New Miele RX1 Scout Robotic Vacuum CleanerBefore I get into the specifics of the Miele Scout, it's worth taking a few moments to take a look at other robot vacuum cleaners on the market. Everyone remembers the Roomba, right? These little guys were popular gifts that would bounce around the house cleaning as they went. This type of robot vacuum is not, however, very efficient at actually cleaning. With any robovac, there has always been a disparity between the cleaning ability of it and a traditional upright or canister. Beyond this, most robotic vacuums use a "chaos" navigation system. This means, the will head off it some direction until they bump into something, then reorient themselves and go bumbling off in some other random direct. The entirely random or chaotic nature of their movement IS their cleaning pattern. This often leaves spots uncleaned or areas where the vacuum may clean multiple times.

Run time has also been a concern with automatic vacuums. Rechargeable battery technology has advanced quite a bit since their commercial inception in 2002. In turn, so has the run time of these vacs and the lifespan of the batteries.

The Miele Scout Uses Advanced Navigation Technology to Ensure the Entire Floor is CleanedThe Miele RX1 Scout displays advances in both of these trouble areas and showcases a few additional features that make it a unique addition to any home. First, instead of the "chaos navigation" or using ultrasound, the Scout uses an array of seven sensors and an integrated ceiling camera to determine its exact position. So while it cleans, this Smart Navigation allows it to map out where it's been and where it still needs to clean. This dramatically improves upon older navigation systems and ensures that your entire floor is cleaned. And as far as the ceiling came goes, no, it's not spying on you! I uses the cam for positioning only, and mapping data is not stored after the Scout is finished cleaning.

In addition to the advanced navigation, the gyro and other sensors keep the Miele RX1 from actually hitting objects in your home. It can sense furniture, walls and even steps to avoid collisions and unexpected falls. If only toddlers were this well trained.... A soft rubber bumper surrounds the Scout, so should something unexpected happen, there won't be any scuffs or marks as a reminder.

Even Delicate Items Are SafeThe way the Scout cleans is by combining suction, a turbobrush, and two soft brushes that looks like little arms spinning out in front of the machine, pulling in dirt, pet hair and debris. Debris and mess is picked up and stored in an easy-to-empty bin, and while the Scout does lack the power of a traditional Miele vacuum, it does come equipped with a Miele AirClean filter to trap microparticles and allergens. The RX1 offers up around two hours of continuous service (or 1600 sq. ft.) before it will quietly return to its charging dock. After another two hours, the Scout and its lithium ion battery are ready to go again!

In addition to automatic cleaning, the Miele Scout also has Corners, Spot and Turbo modes. A well-lit LCD display on the top lets you know what mode the Scout is operating in as well as the time, and an included remote gives you complete control of the Scout.

Steps?  No Problem!It's good to keep in mind that the Scout is NOT a replacement for your regular vacuum cleaner. A weekly deep cleaning with your standard Miele is still a good idea, but the Scout makes for a great everyday, maintenance vacuum. For someone like me, who has all smooth floors and a dog, the Scout is the ideal way to clean up dog hair and dirt while I'm at work. It keeps me from having to use a dust mop each day, and at the end of the week, I still use my regular Miele canister to give the house a good, thorough cleaning. The Scout also makes a neat gift for that hard to buy for person in your life or for the "gadget" person who is always looking for the latest and greatest. Overall, the Miele RX1 Scout robotic vacuum has a lot to offer, and don't worry about carpet. It does clean carpet and rugs too!

The Scout should be hitting shelves in just a couple weeks (expect them to start shipping by the last week in June), so until then you can visit our Miele RX1 Scout vacuum cleaner page to view a video of the Scout and to see more images.

Two Free Boxes of Filter Bags with the Purchase of Every Miele Vacuum CleanerMiele vacuum cleaners have long been known for a few things. They offer exceptional cleaning performance, powerful suction, unmatched filtration, and are built to last 20 years. Unlike other brands, they're also notorious for not discounting their line of luxury HEPA vacuum cleaners, but every now and again, we can sweeten the deal. For a limited time, receive Two Free Boxes of Filter Bags with the purchase of any Miele Premium Vacuum Cleaner.

For nearly 100 years Miele has been designing and building quality vacuum cleaners. Here at AchooAllergy, Miele has been a brand of vacuum cleaner that we highly recommend. Their emphasis on air filtration, keeping your indoor air clean while you vacuum, is critical for people concerned with allergies, asthma or indoor air quality in general. Traditional vacuum cleaners can remove visible dirt but can release millions of particles back into the air. They can literally take allergens and particulate that had previously settled out of the air and onto the floor and disperse them back into the air you breathe. Unfortunately, even HEPA vacuum cleaners can be guilty of this.

Miele Swing Premium Upright Vacuum Cleaner Miele takes air quality a step further. Not only do they independently test their products, but with a HEPA filter, they include the use of a 9-ply filter bag, a pre-motor, and a sealed system (on most vacs) to not only completely clean the air as it passes through the vacuum but ensure that dirty and clean air do not mix or leak. Sealed system Miele vacuums, equipped with their H13 HEPA remove allergens like mold spores, dander, dust mite allergen and dust from the floor and from the air you breathe - the perfect allergy vacuum.

This is all in addition to Miele's superior cleaning ability, high quality and unparalleled durability. The Vortex motor creates powerful, concentrated suction to remove not only the dirt, hair and soil you can see but also capture the microparticles that you can't. A range of included accessories (even more than usual if you are considering their HomeCare line) and attachments make Miele vacuums Miele Marin S8 Canister Vacuum Cleanersome of the most versatile cleaning machines you can own. In addition to all of this is the knowledge that Miele's are built to last twenty years!

So if you were considering purchasing one of the most advanced, durable and effective vacuum cleaners on the market, now is the time to buy. In addition to free express delivery (next day or two day delivery of nearly all Miele vacs) you will also receive TWO FREE BOXES of FILTERBAGS. That's a year's worth of bags, nearly a $40 value, free!

Miele Flamenco II - 12 Years and Still Sucking!Last week, we had a local customer stop by with a Miele that had stopped working. When I saw it, I immediately recognized the body shape and styling as an old S200 model canister, and upon closer inspection, I did indeed find that it was a Miele Flamenco II. As the pictures shows, it is a little rough for wear, but most of it seems to be scuffs. The customer informed us that her Miele would not power up. This can generally mean anything from a bad switch or circuit board to a faulty thermal cut out or issue with the motor. After some initial testing, my coworker declared that it was likely the motor. Sitting nearby, I laughed. Somewhat indignant, he then asked me what I thought it was. Though I couldn't say, I was willing to bet $5 that it was NOT the motor.

We checked the label on the bottom - 2002. Surely it wasn't the motor. It was only 12 years old! To further test this theory (and win my wager), I brought in my multi-meter from home, the next morning. After checking the cord reel, the motor and the plug, it started to become increasingly clear that I was going to win my bet.

With the multi-meter we were able to narrow the source of the problem down to the plug. After replacing the cord and reassembling the Flamenco, it was time for a test. Sure enough, it started right up without issue!

There were a couple things I took away from this. Something we often talk about with a Miele vacuum is the initial cost but viewing a Miele as an investment. Each is built to provide you 20 years of reliable cleaning service, and in the age of "throwaway" everything, including cheap home appliances, this is no small thing. Even after twelve years of use, this Flamenco was going strong, and a simple replacement of the plug had it up and running like new. The other thing I took away from this was.... lunch!

If some of you have visited your local authorized Miele dealer, you may have come across a specific set of Miele vacuum models that you don't see online. You might have seen a unique color or a few additional tools included in with these models. The HomeCare line of vacuums is exclusive to independent dealers, like AchooAllergy.com. This also means you won't find them in any big box store where Miele vacuums are sold. There are a few other features though that make these vacs unique.

First, there is one HomeCare model for each current Miele line. So there is an S2, S6, S8 and S7 upright model. While each respective model may share some similarities with the Miele vacuums you'll find on our website, there are some key differences, like additional accessories, your choice of floor attachments, and something else they all share - you won't find them anywhere, except in an Authorized HomeCare dealer's storefront.

So if you'd like to learn more, click the icon above. It will direct you back to the Miele website, but if you have any questions or want to learn more, give us a call, email or chat.

From cleaning delicate flooring or high traffic carpet and dusting to cleaning drapes, detailing your car (or computer) or keeping hard-to-reach areas clean, Miele vacuums offer a range of features, attachments and prices to fit your needs and your budget.

Unlike other vacuums that use cheap materials, Miele vacs are manufactured in Germany and extensively tested. Their performance and longevity are two reason why Miele vacuums have won past and current acclaim from Consumers Digest, J.D. Power, Good Housekeeping, and the Housewares Design Awards as well as Architectural Digest, SHAPE, and Real Simple magazines.

For models like the premium Miele UniQ the free filters means you won't have to worry about purchasing a new filter until 2016.
