Though the Miele S2 vacuum cleaners are styled differently, each vacuum is capable of using one or more carpet cleaning
tools. On the most basic level, each of four S2 canister vacuums will work with
the Miele STB 205-3 turbobrush. The
STB 205-3 comes standard with the
Miele Capri and is optional for each of the other three vacuums. This
air driven tool works best on low to medium pile carpet.
For units with electric hoses and wands, you have more possibilities.
The Miele Titan and
Miele Delphi have the electrically driven
SEB 217-3 powerbrush. The SEB 217-3 is perfect for
cleaning medium and even high pile carpet of average density. It has a 10.5" cleaning path and has an independent motor,
but it lacks height adjustment capability.
For very thick carpet the Titan and Delphi can both be used with either
the SEB 228 or
the Miele SEB 236.
These attachments are well-suited for any style of carpet. These top-of-the-line carpet
tools cut a 14" cleaning path, have an adjustable height pedal, and can be "parked"
in an upright position. The SEB 236 also
features a LED lamp to illuminate your cleaning area and a rubber bumper strip to help protect your furniture.
Both of these large powerbrushes have independent motors driving them and represent the best options for cleaning carpet with
a Miele canister vacuum.
All of the Miele carpet cleaning brushes can be easily disassembled to remove anything that may be tangled in the
brush roll. The three powerbrushes have an independent motor that
can be switched off. This disengages the brush roll and allows you to clean smooth flooring with straight suction.
