Thinking of investing in a Miele? If so, read below. This is an honest and open review of their pet c3 series vacuum.
If you have pets, especially pets that shed, you know how difficult it can be to get their hair out of carpets, furniture, clothes, the bed, drinking glasses, etc. There are times I find Louie and Beatrice’s hair in places I didn’t even think was possible! I have tried numerous vacuums and pet hair cleaning products but none of them seemed to work in gathering all of the hair.
A little fact about pugs is that they shed…A LOT! Before I got Louie, I didn’t realize how much of a tiny little fur ball he would be. You see, pugs have a double coat and I swear– you can literally blow on them and POOF! Hair flies everywhere! Once we adopted Bea, the hair amounts in our carpet just kept building and building until finally the carpet looked like a different color. I would vacuum twice a day with my Shark and it still wouldn’t pick up all of the dog and cat hair.
After extensive research, I decided to invest in a Miele.
Miele makes a ton of products for the home. Their vacuums come in a wide range of types: canister, bagless, stick, upright and robot. Miele vacuums are known for being durable, long lasting, compact and for having a great suction– something that is absolutely necessary when cleaning dog hair out of carpets.
After lots of research on Miele http://www.mieleusa.com I decided to purchase the Miele Complete C3 Cat & Dog Canister Vacuum Cleaner because it was important to me that it was made specifically with the pet owner in mind! I kid you not– it is honestly a god-send. It is pricey, yes, but let me tell you… it is WORTH it!
Within the first use I was hooked. The canister was easy to assemble and what I love the most is that it has an active air clean filter and lots of different heads for the vacuum. The air clean filter and bag might seem like a pain in the butt for some people, however, I personally loved it! It collects and traps all of the dust, dirt, hair and dander instead of spreading that awful burnt smell throughout the air. It keeps the air smelling fresh and clean!
The Electrobrush has five levels of heights for different carpet adjustments and it literally SUCKS everything up out of your carpet. My “white/gray” mixed dog hair carpet finally returned back to its rich black color. I was amazed! Truly and utterly in awe at the power of this vacuum head! I have different carpets throughout the house and each require a different level of suction and height. I love that the electrobrush allows you to change the height depending on the carpet piling.
Then there’s the hardwood floor tool– the parquet twister. It is so easy to use and lightweight. It glides across my kitchen floor, picking up dirt between every crack. Lastly, my third favorite brush head is the mini turbo. I use this on my stair carpeting as well as cleaning my microfiber couch! Again, the suction power of the Miele makes vacuuming hair super easy. It puts my old Shark to shame!
I do not find this vacuum to be too heavy. Sure, it is a lot different than a standup vacuum but once you adjust to the canister it really isn’t too much of a difference. I don’t mind it at all and I don’t mind carrying it up the steps. For me, it is actually easier to get our narrow steps and makes it easier for me to turn.
I highly recommend this vacuum and all of its features! My house rugs look brand new and I always get compliments on how fresh and clean my home is–even with two very furry pets!
