When it comes to most home appliances, ‘sucking’ is not a sought after benefit for its features. However, when it comes to your vacuum, it is usually towards the top of the list. This being the case, Bekins chooses to carry only Miele Vacuums! Miele is a prestigious name in home appliances that is recognized around the globe for the quality and performance of its products. Just 10 states in the US house Miele showrooms, with Bekins being the only one in Michigan!
Two things are needed for a vacuum to clean really well: suction and agitation. Miele Vacuums are the best at combining both! They offer numerous options from a robot vac, to a stick vacuum, to uprights, and canisters. Miele uprights are great for homes with a lot of carpet. Miele canisters are versatile for both carpet and hard flooring since most models come with a carpet head that has a beater bar as well as a hard surface cleaning head. Also offered are models with a wide range of filters from the basic dust filter, to the charcoal filter for pet dander, and even a HEPA filter for all those allergens! Not only is Miele the best overall vacuum, but they also have a 7 year motor warranty!
Putting it to the test
Sharing my personal experience, I originally purchased the Consumer Reports’ “Best Buy” model according to their ratings. I got it home and after some assembly, it seemed to perform well. A few months later, we started carrying Miele Vacuums at Bekins, so I brought an upright home to see how much this Miele really ‘sucked’. I put a new bag in each vacuum and vacuumed all the carpeted areas of my home; a little over 1400 square feet total. First was my CR’s “best buy” vacuum. I got about a half inch worth of ‘stuff’ in the bottom of the bag. Not bad… or so I thought. I then went right back over the same areas with the Miele. WOW! I collected almost a third of a bag full of more ‘stuff’! It was like I hadn’t vacuumed in a year! I was blow away by how much better the Miele did, especially using it right after my original vacuum. This thing really sucked!
Needless to say, I purchased the Miele Upright and have been using it ever since. Having moved since this time, I now have added a Miele Canister Vacuum to my collection, due to my new home having more hard-floor areas along with some carpet. I still have my original upright for my lower level and it’s still going strong. My new Miele Canister works great on all of my surfaces from heavy pile carpet, to tile, vinyl, and even hardwood flooring.
Being an allergy sufferer, I also appreciate the Zero emissions that the Miele Vacuums provide. Between the 9-ply bags, the HEPA filter, the dust filter, and the sealed system, it doesn’t blow any particles back into the room once they have been sucked up!
Ready for your test drive?
I would encourage everyone to stop in and test drive a Miele Vacuum. You can even bring your old vacuum in and we can compare it to a new Miele at either of our showrooms. We have plenty of surfaces and even some ‘stuff’ we can clean up for comparison! You are always welcome at Bekins, where our vacuums really ‘suck’.
