Miele vacuum cleaners are highly recommended for people with allergies. You can use safely use them without having to worry about inhaling the dust. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions concerning Miele vacuum cleaners.
1. What Is an Airclean Hepa Filter?
The HEPA filter removes fine particles and allergens such as dust, pollen, and pet dander. The airclean filters are tested and certified independently to make sure they meet or exceed the set HEPA filtration standards. When used alongside the 9-ply filter bag, the Miele Sealed System, and pre-motor filter and post filter, these vacuum cleaners can filter up to 99.99% of particles. Some Miele filters feature a timestrip that alerts you when its time to replace them.
2. What Does an Active Airclean Filter Do?
The work of the active airclean filter is to remove odours. It is packed with activated charcoal to absorb various odours. It features models for cats and dogs. When buying a Miele vacuum cleaner, consider adding on this filter as well to keep your pets happy and clean. It can trap extremely fine allergens and particles.
3. What Is a Standard Airclean Filter?
The standard airclean filter is capable of trapping 99.95% of particles featuring sizes as minute as 0.5 microns. It can also trap 94% of as low as 0.3 microns. It is highly recommended for balancing the cost, cleaning and filtration. Besides, the AirClean filter is bundled free of charge with every box of filter bag you buy.
4. What Does Air Flow Mean?
Air flow measures the force at which moving air comes out of a vacuum cleaner. Measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM), air flow is responsible for the actual cleaning. The higher the CFM rating, the better and more effective a vacuum cleaner is. If a vacuum cleaner is poorly constructed and designed, it will have weaker air flow in spite of the strength of its motor. The higher the CFM rating, the better the suction and cleaning ability of a vacuum cleaner.
5. Why Should I Buy Miele’s 3D Airclean Filterbags?
These filter bags feature a 9-ply design. They have an inbuilt self-sealing spring-loaded collar. Besides sealing itself when being changed, while in use, the bag seals around the neck of the canister lid. The filter bags feature layers, each of which is designed to separately filter incrementally smaller particles. They consist of the nine stages or layers out of the eleven-stage filtration process made possible by Miele’s airclean filter bags. Due to the multiple filtration stages, the 3D filter bags can trap 99.9% of all particles.
They provide superior filtration even at low suction settings. They are also puncture-resistant and have a superior suction performance (33% better) than intensive clean bags. Besides providing up to 15% improved filtration, their self-sealing collar makes it possible to hygienically remove and dispose of them.
6. Is There a Difference Between a Turbobrush and a Powerbrush?
Yes! While a powerbrush, also known as an electrobrush, is electricity-driven, a Miele turbobrush is air-powered. Turbobrushes are light duty and can only perform effectively on carpets with low to medium piles. However, to vacuum wall-to-wall carpets, high pile carpets, or pets, the heavy-duty powerbrush featuring an independent motor is the most suitable.
It cleans high pile carpets deeply and thoroughly. Premium powerbrushes perform a thorough cleaning job since their height is adjustable. Turbobrushes do not have this flexibility. Another edge that powerbrushes have over turbobrushes is that they can control brush roll.
7. Is It True That Miele Vacuum Cleaners Are Ideal for People with Allergies or Asthma?
Yes! Here is why. For more than 75 years, Miele engineers have developed, researched and tested vacuum cleaners with a view to eliminating allergens. The result is vacuum cleaning equipment that can remove even the finest allergens or dirt particles without affecting allergic or asthmatic users. This is due to Miele vacuum’s 11-stage filtration process and a sealed system that no other vacuum cleaner can match.
