Are you a Miele fan or a Dyson admirer?

It does not matter who you are because the following points can clear some of your doubts about both.  The Miele vs. Dyson or Dyson vs. Miele argument about which is the better vacuum cleaner has been raging for quite some time now.

So let’s get down to discussing some relevant points to make things clear…

Let us start with a Miele S7260 compared to a Dyson DC41 upright vacuum cleaner, since they are both designed for the additional burden of pet hair removal.

  • Operation
    • It is a very well known fact that the noise level of the Miele S7260 models is much lower than the noise created by a Dyson DC41 model.
    • Both have very good suction power but the Miele model has more suction than the Dyson model, as you have to swipe the same part of the surface only once with the Miele S7260 as opposed to the Dyson DC41.
    • Only suction is not sufficient to clean the carpets, you also need agitation to do the job efficiently.  The Miele has been designed in such a way that the full-length brush is hard enough to shake loose the dust deep inside the carpet.  This Electrobrush has its own motor!  The design of the brush directs the dust towards the centre of the head where the suction is at maximum, but not so with the Dyson models.
  • Maneuverability
    • The Dyson DC41 utilizes a patented Ball technology, which allows the user to more easily move around obstacles.

    • The Miele S7260 uses a patented SwivelNeck, which enables the user to easily maneuver the vacuum under beds and other low furniture, as well as around obstacles.  It continues to operate with powerful suction when lying flat on the floor.
  • Miele vs. Dyson as in Maintenance
    • The Dyson models are equipped with a hard transparent plastic dust container mounted on top of the head.  Whereas, the Miele S7 models have a dust bag mounted inside the front cover.

    • When dust or pet hair is removed from floors and the carpets by the Dyson models, the particles and hair tend to stick around the inner surface of the dust container and it has to be cleaned every time you reuse.
    • To clean the dust container of the Dyson DC41, you have to disengage the dust container from its moorings and open its lower cover to empty and clean, releasing dust and fine particles into the air.
    • On the other hand, in Miele the dust bag does not need to be removed every time. This is because the force of the suction causes an even flow of air, which deposits all the dust and particles at the bottom of the bag and a lot of space is left for subsequent cleanings.

    • There is an indicator on the front of the Miele, which shows whether the dust bag is full or not.  The dust bag can be used for a multiple number of cleaning jobs before it needs to be changed.  And what do you have to do?  You have to just take out the bag filled with dust etc. and replace it with a new one.
    • The dust bags in the Miele are sealed automatically when they are taken out, ensuring that the dust particles are permanently removed from your house and do not fly in the air, polluting it further.  Good news for those of us who have asthma or are allergic to dust, isn’t it?  One of the best online stores for allergy relief products, with the best prices for Miele vacuum cleaners, Miele filters, Miele bags, and other products for allergy sufferers, is
  • Air Filtration
    • The HEPA technology is used for the filtration of air in the Miele models.  In this, the air is drawn through twelve stages of air filtration so that 99.9+% of the dust particles are retained inside the dust bags of the Miele models and the air coming out of the vacuum cleaner is completely clean.
    • The Miele cleaners come with a certified HEPA filter, which this Dyson model does not have.
  • Warranty
    • The Dyson DC41 comes with a 5-year warranty.
    • The Miele S7260 comes with a 7-year casing warranty and a 7-year motor warranty.  In addition, the Miele vacuum comes with a 2-year Good Housekeeping warranty, for repair, replacement or refund.

So, let us put an end to the Miele vs. Dyson argument, and opt for buying a Miele upright vacuum cleaner for good!
